CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – Dr. Terry Wahls will deliver three presentations at the University of Northern Iowa from 1 to 2:30 p.m., 3 to 4 p.m. and 7:30 to 9 p.m., Wednesday, April 19, in Room 220 of the Schindler Education Center on the UNI campus.

Dr. Wahls is a clinical professor at the University of Iowa. She is also a patient with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, which required her to be in a wheelchair for four years. She restored her health using a diet and lifestyle program she designed specifically for her brain. She is a pioneering and nationally recognized researcher with multiple publications on how food and exercise influence health and wellness, including several books about the uses and benefits of a paleo lifestyle for those with autoimmune conditions.

Dr. Wahls’ third presentation from 7:30 to 9 p.m., titled “Radical Healing: Drugs Not Required,” is open to the public. In this presentation, Dr. Wahls will discuss how diet and lifestyle changes can alleviate health risks and how changes to her own diet and lifestyle helped her regain the functionality to bike to work almost every day and stop using a wheelchair.
