Reply PaleoAthletics says: April 17, 2012 at 5:37 am GREAT VIDEO!!!!! Reply Inanna Jacque Kay says: June 8, 2012 at 3:22 pm Are we supposed to eat all th egreens and veggies in a raw/uncooked state? Does anyone here know the specs on that for Dr. Wahls' diet??? Love and light to you all!! Jacque Reply judy armstrong says: July 21, 2012 at 2:59 pm I eat a smoothie every morning that contains OJ, 1/2-1c fresh fruit, 1 c kale, 1 c frozen berries (fresh organic that I cleaned, packaged and froze in zip top bag), whey protein powder and I have no trouble digesting it. You can eat more servings if you "juice" it-I use a VitaMix blender because it's easy to use and gets the greens processed well. I don't have MS but I want to preserve my health and brain function generally Reply judy armstrong says: July 21, 2012 at 3:00 pm I'll be this would be good for senior citizens too, who have reduced brain function. If you can convince them to eat this way Reply kingbionic says: August 3, 2012 at 5:18 am Fantastic !! Reply ZeeKay says: September 9, 2012 at 6:18 am No, not at all! You can cook the food you eat. Google the Paleo Lifestlye to learn more about it. Or you could head over to Mark Sisson's blog. He explains it really well. Enjoy eating healthy! Reply Inanna Jacque Kay says: September 9, 2012 at 2:59 pm Thank you!!! The whole "raw food" movement has had me a bit confused… until I saw a study done by Susan Weed on the matter:) I will look up the Paleo Lifestyle and the blog, too! Love and light to you, Jacque Reply Lesbian Zombie Hunter says: October 3, 2012 at 10:49 pm She is right. I had a MS attack that almost completely disabled me in 2002. I went on a simular diet The Swank and in a year recovered. I have stayed on the healthy eating path. NO junk, NO Trans fat, fresh veggies and fruit. I have not had a attack in 10 years. Rock On Dr Terry Wahls. Reply Salomon Oviedo says: January 17, 2013 at 7:45 am Chicken hearts boost levels of Coenzyme Q10 through the roof, taste really good in noodles and rice dishes. Reply veganath says: January 23, 2013 at 7:25 am Eating organ meats, wouldn't cooking the meat destroy the vitamins & co-enzyme Q10, perhaps it would be better to eat it raw, as do ALL other animal species. Reply Guantana Mera says: March 23, 2013 at 4:52 am Paleo!!! I hope this will solve my fatigue problem. Reply rogermwilcox says: June 9, 2013 at 8:48 pm 04:30 … you didn't know where UNKNOWN NUTRIENTS were in the food supply, and neither did any of the medical texts or food science texts you consulted … but "the Internet did"?! I doubt that the Internet really "knew" these things. More likely, a lot of people were taking stabs in the dark based on anecdotes and guesswork, and calling it "knowledge." Reply Lupa1968 says: June 19, 2013 at 5:31 am I eat heart raw…still working on the liver 🙂 Reply Lupa1968 says: June 19, 2013 at 5:33 am Eat some raw and some cooked…there are some nutrients that are more available in lightly cooked veggies, especially when you take them with some healthy fats. Reply veganath says: June 19, 2013 at 6:13 am How do u get past a humans innate aversion to eating another dead animal? We don't seem to have any carnivorous instincts, my mouth doesn't water at the sight of road kill(hate that term) Reply Lupa1968 says: June 19, 2013 at 6:51 am Well, I suppose that must vary. I don't have an innate aversion to it at all…..as a child I was forced into vegetarianism for a time and spent the entire time (several years) craving meat quite intensely. My mouth also does not water at the sight of roadkill, but it definitely does at the sight of raw shellfish, venison, beef or fish! My body craves that as a source of nutrients and I feel very good when I eat it. Reply rogermwilcox says: June 19, 2013 at 9:44 pm Au contraire, the notion that she magically found all this information lurking on the Internet, when she couldn't find it in mainstream scientific literature or textbooks, is central to what's wrong with her argument. Her claims that these "unknown nutrients" exist and really do the things she claims they do seems to be based entirely on anecdote and bits-and-pieces of circumstantial evidence. Far too many people believe these kinds of things simply because they like the sound of them. Reply Hannah Kullberg says: July 10, 2013 at 5:12 am What about beans!? Reply SirTedFairyspear2 says: July 19, 2013 at 12:03 pm Dr Wahl's claim that 'unknown nutrients' exist is NOT based on "circumstantial evidence" but on medical history, which quite clearly shows that researchers continue to discover vital food factors on a regular basis. Only a few years ago Professors Gerry Potter and Dan Burke discovered salvestrols, which may have a significant role in cancer prevention. We have not reached the end of science in this or any other field yet. Reply antistagnate says: May 16, 2014 at 9:24 am Gosh she is a remarkable woman! I wish I knew her in real life. Reply simo blaq says: June 7, 2014 at 5:53 pm Vitamin back Reply dswetty says: November 26, 2014 at 2:51 am @ Steve Bergmanwhat are you smoking bro??? I agree that book promos are a dcrag—but you missed this whole video. She didn't mention a book, hardly mentioned her serious plight—it was about food and diet. She didn't sensationalize her situation, NEVER mentioned a book. Your sweeping generalization was totally off base, and didn't have anything to do with this TED talk….(back under the rock with you!!) Reply Feride Gursoy says: March 4, 2015 at 6:07 pm @ Steve Bergman Thanks to you I realized she'd written a book. Might as well buy it 🙂 Reply Steve Ruble says: September 8, 2016 at 5:39 pm To those who are claiming benefits from Dr Wahls dietary recommendations, what specifically have you eliminated from what you were previously eating? Reply Richard Esquivel says: October 19, 2016 at 3:20 am Remarkable woman and a remarkable story. As a functional medicine doctor, I know very well how the nutrients in food (and supplements) can change people's lives dramatically. Terry Wahls' story continues to be an inspiration to millions of people and thousands of FM doctors like me who are trying to spread this message and the awareness of the limitations (and adverse effects) of pharmaceutical drugs. There is a better way… Reply Vanessa Malandrin says: January 8, 2017 at 2:36 pm Mitocondria are the energy power house of every cell in our body.Mitochondria ancestrally derive from bacteria, have their own circular DNA (just like bacteria) and actually still behave somewhat like bacteria inside the host cell ( which has helitical DNA), so when people are put on long term antibiotics not only do they kill off most of their precious gut bacteria but also the antibiotics drastically damage the mitichondria in every cell of their body. Where most energy is required eg. brain, heart and liver, each cell can have up to 2 thousand mitochondria! I 've seen a friend of mine end up in a wheel chair with symptoms similar to parkinsons disease thanks to all the antibiotic therapy prescribed to fight a hosptal aquired microbial infection 3 years ago.There are foods which contain a substance called PQQ which can help the biogenisis of the mitochondria inside each cell.Check out "is the mitochondria still a microbe? —Jon Lieff MD and Helsinki study by neuroligist Dr.Filip Scheperjanson "is there a link between gut microbes and parkinsons disease. Thankyou Dr.Whals for this talk. Thank God the internert exists.
