When the renowned Dr. Terry Wahls of “The Wahls Protocol” reaches out to your podcast to help her spread news about a new study she’s recruiting for, first you pinch yourself, then, as an HSCTr, you wanna ask her if it’s true that she had chemotherapy, and, yes, I got my answer (you’ll have to listen to find out).
Not only did she explain how the Wahls Protocol came to be, but what it’s all about and why not all diets work for everyone. Here are the episode notes for episode #1 of 2.
