Transcript
Terry Wahls, MD

Welcome to The Multiple Sclerosis and Neuroimmune Summit. I’m Dr. Terry Wahls, I am your host. And I am so glad that you are here so I can empower you with the knowledge and skill sets that there is so much that you can do to help stop the damage and begin restoring function and getting your life back. Now, 20 years ago, out walking with my wife a half mile from home, my left leg grows weak, and dragging it, I hobble home. I see the neurologist, he says, “Terry, this could be bad. Or really, really bad.” At night, as I lay in bed next to Jackie. I think about the twenty years of worsening latent phase pains that I have already endured. And I pray secretly for a fatal diagnosis because I do not want to become disabled, a burden to my family. For three weeks we go test to test to test. Finally, I hear the words multiple sclerosis. I see the very best M.S. center in the country. I take the newest drugs. Three years later, I hear tilt, recline, wheelchair. My 10-year-old daughter hugs me as tears stream down my face when those electrical face turns on yet again. But am I really doing all that I can? I am a physician. Night after night I go to PubMed to read the basic science and I develop the theory that mitochondria are the driver of disability and I create a supplement cocktail to support my mitochondria. The speed of my decline slows and I am so grateful, but I am still declining. I discover a study using electrical stimulation muscles. I ask my physical therapist, “Can I try that?” He calls it E Stim. He says it is for athletes and that it is painful. And he knows I have so much pain from the M.S.
