Last autumn Terry Wahls, MD was on the show talking about The Wahls Protocol, A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles (if you missed this episode, you can catch it here). This year Terry's follow-up book was published, Wahls Protocol: Cooking for Life, which is a Paleo cookbook that focuses on putting the spotlight on the role of food in healing. We caught up with Dr. Wahls in a Facebook Live interview, watch or listen in and discover what makes this cookbook standout from the rest.
