Support Dr. Terry Wahls Latest Cutting Edge Research


Help us reach our stretch goal of $35,000 by Sunday, November 4! 


Dr. Wahls and her research team at the University of Iowa are examining the impact of diet and lifestyle changes, like those implemented through the Wahls Protocol, on patients diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis as well as other chronic diseases. The donations received through this campaign will allow Dr. Wahls to expand her work on other disease states, and conduct basic science studies, which help to understand the mechanisms of why the interventions she uses are so effective. In addition to basic science studies, the dollars raised will directly support feasibility and safety studies, research staff, dietitians, post-doctoral scholars, and lab testing and analysis of current clinical trials.


This work is cutting edge, and no other institution in the world is exploring these changes in the ways that Dr. Wahls and her team are at the University of Iowa. Private gifts from friends like you and private foundations partnering with Dr. Wahls is the only way this work is possible because federal grant funding is not available for this type of research.


All gifts made on the GOLDrush site are tax deductible and every dollar raised will directly impact Dr. Wahls research. A gift at any level is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support!
