We've had an amazing start to the new year already with “Encore Week” 2013 featuring a compelling conversation about lipid health with Dr. Thomas Dayspring on Monday and a philosophical debate about the importance of calories for weight loss with Jonathan Bailor on Tuesday. We're enjoying bringing you BRAND NEW EPISODES all week long highlighting your favorite podcast guests of 2012 as voted on by you.

Today we are thrilled to have another chance to speak with an inspiring physician and author named Dr. Terry Wahls who beat her secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) by adding in the micronutrient-rich principles of the Paleo diet. I featured her on "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show" podcast in Episode 533 in January 2012. Over 1.1 million people have seen her incredible nearly 18-minute November 2011 TedXIowaCity YouTube video entitled "Minding Your Mitochondria" by now--if you haven't, you really should check it out now:
Dr. Wahls wrote a fabulous book called Minding My Mitochondria: How I overcame secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) and got out of my wheelchair and is changing the course of how seemingly debilitating diseases like MS are being treated. Listen in as Jimmy and Dr. Wahls discuss her sudden fame over the past year as a result of her TEDx talk, how the medical community is responding to her protocol for helping others improve their MS, why the low-carb, ketogenic aspect of her Paleo diet is a crucial part of her success, her hopes for future research into nutritional remedies for various disease and so much more. Enjoy today's interview and don't forget to check out all of the other “Encore Week” 2013 airing all week long.
