The Wahls Protocol has been on my reading list for a while and I'm finally digging into it. Terry Wahls is an amazing MD who arrested and then partially reversed the progression of her multiple sclerosis using food as medicine. As she points out in her book, there are many similarities between the various autoimmune conditions like MS, autoimmune hypothyroidism, Crohn's, and colitis, and many non-MS patients have seen improvements in their conditions by following her dietary and lifestyle protocols. A central principle of The Wahls Protocol is to eat a variety of colored fruits and (mostly) vegetables. Today, still set on my mission to nourish my microbiota, I intended to do just that.
This is what I ate for dinner:
Steamed Purple Broccolini Seasoned with Olive Oil, Herbes de Provence and White Pepper
Alaskan Pink Salmon with Olive Oil and Thyme
Asparagus and Daikon Radish Soup
Steamed Winter Squash
I would like to reiterate a point I have tried to make before: I am not special; I just really care about my health. If that means being the guy who cooks full meals in his hotel room, so be it. This is my way to feel great, every day, even while away from home. The food doesn't need to be fancy--just enjoy it and have fun. Thanks for sharing in my journey!
In good health,
I'm Ethan, a guy whose life used to be controlled by ulcerative colitis. As I systematically tested diets, treatments, and all types of health advice to heal my colon, I learned a lot about my own biology and also how to cook without compromise. I'm here to share the best (and sometimes worst) of that journey with you.
