    The Wahls Protocol - How I Beat...

    Like many physicians, Dr. Terry Wahls focused on treating her patients' ailments with drugs or surgical procedures—until she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000. Within three years, her back and stomach muscles had weakened to the point where she needed a tilt-recline wheelchair. Conventional medical treatments were failing her, and she feared that she would be bedridden for the rest of her life. 
    Dr. Wahls began studying the latest research on autoimmune disease and brain biology, and decided to get her vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids from the food she ate rather than pills and supplements. Dr. Wahl's adopted the nutrient-rich paleo diet, gradually refining and integrating it into a regimen of neuromuscular stimulation. First, she walked slowly, then steadily, and then she biked eighteen miles in a single day. In November 2011, Dr. Wahls shared her remarkable recovery in a TEDx talk that immediately went viral. Now, in The Wahls Protocol, she shares the details of the protocol that allowed her to reverse many of her symptoms, get back to her life, and embark on a new mission: to share the Wahls Protocol with others suffering from the ravages of multiple sclerosis and other autoimmune conditions.

Even the luxury of a Sunday evening at home with family—and friends considered to be family—can be a cause for a feast. Through luscious signature recipes, stories and gorgeous photography, Farmer, known as “a Martha Stewart of the South,” and friends show us what Southern hospitality is all about. From society weddings to Lowcountry boils, second birthdays to Christmas parties, you’ll be guided through the menu planning and preparations to pull off celebrations that will be talked about for years.  Praise for James T. Farmer and his books  “A Southern gentleman who’s just as charming in the garden as he is in the kitchen. He’s compiled all his botanical experiences into A Time to Plant.”—Harper’s Bazaar   “A Time to Cook, A Time to Plant and A Time to Celebrate are titles of three of his books that inspire readers to cultivate, decorate and salivate over their own efforts in the kitchen. His books contain descriptive text combined with colorful photographs and garden-to-table recipes.”—The Virginian-Pilot
