This year, World MS Day is May 30th and the team here at Lifepro is thrilled to share some big news for this community! Lifepro is proud to support and want to acknowledge Dr. Terry Wahls, a University of Iowa internal medicine professor and clinician famed for her own personal experience and amazing reversal of her multiple sclerosis symptoms. Dr Wahl’s has recently been granted a $2.5 million gift from the Carter Chapman Shreve Family Foundation to research ways diet may improve the quality of life for so many dealing with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disorder affecting the brain and spinal cord. Many who suffer from MS end up feeling fatigued or have difficulty getting around, which often contributes to a loss in muscle mass.

The upcoming two-year dietary study “Efficacy of Diet on Quality of Life in Multiple Sclerosis” will focus on how three different diets affect MS patients and will be one of the biggest and longest-ever dietary-intervention studies on people dealing with MS. The funding will allow Dr. Wahls and her team to include 156 study participants with relapsing-remitting MS. “If diet and lifestyle treatment (without drugs) are found to be equivalent to disease-modifying drug treatments, it will have huge implications for patients and their families, as well as policymakers.”

Wahls truly is walking, talking proof that her Wahls Protocol® will improve the strength of autoimmune, neurologic, and chronically diseased patients. The Wahls Protocol® comes out of her own personal life journey to treat the devastating symptoms she herself experiences having progressive MS. Dr. Wahl’s book reveals her remarkable personal story of recovery and outlines her program, with up-to-date research she’s now conducting at the University of Iowa.

Lifepro is proud to support Dr. Terry Wahls as one of our partners. She is a user and advocate of our vibration plates and promotes the many benefits for those suffering from MS and other autoimmune issues. See our related article, Autoimmune Disorders and How Vibration Plates Can Help.

"I have used vibration plate exercise equipment as part of my exercise routine for several years. The research shows that vibration plate training increases muscle mass, bone density, core strength, and leg strength.”

Lifepro is an affordable vibration platform that increases accessibility to the benefits of vibration plate training. It is part of my daily self-care routine! It is a wonderful adjunct to one’s home exercise program."

We here at Lifepro are excited to see what this new study will reveal and admire Dr. Wahl’s pursuit to bring a better quality of life to so many suffering from these conditions.
