Dr. Terry Wahls, Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Iowa


Dr. Terry WahlsDr. Terry Wahls is a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa where she teaches internal medicine residents, sees patients in a traumatic brain injury clinic, and conducts clinical trials. 

She is also a patient with a chronic progressive neurological disorder, secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, which confined her to a tilt-recline wheelchair for four years. But thanks to the power of the Wahls Protocol™, which is based on functional medicine and the Wahls Paleo™ diet, Dr. Wahls restored her health and now pedals her bike five miles to work each day.

Dr. Wahls is a fifth generation Iowan who grew up on a farm in Northeast Iowa and raised a son and daughter there as well. She has a bachelor's degree of Fine Arts from Drake University in Studio Art - Painting and a Medical Doctorate from the University of Iowa. She completed an Internal Medicine Residency at the University of Iowa and has been on faculty at Iowa since 2000.

Dr. Terry Wahls lives in Iowa City with her spouse, Jackie and their teenage daughter, Zebby. Her son, Zach Wahls, is an engineering student at the University of Iowa; recently, he became well-known for his testimony at the Iowa State House opposing the proposed amendment to ban gay marriage, which went viral in February 2011, receiving nearly twenty million views. His book, My Two Moms, was published April 2012.

Dr. Wahls created several books, CDs, and DVDs that summarize her use of intensive nutrition in recovery from secondary progressive multiple sclerosis.

She shows how to eat and the actions we need to take to ensure our mitochondria and brain cells have all the building blocks necessary to truly live and for our brain cells to do the work of being a brain.
