She was diagnosed with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis in 2000, around the time I began working at the university.
By 2003 she had transitioned to secondary progressive multiple sclerosis.
She underwent chemotherapy in an attempt to slow the disease and began using a tilt-recline wheelchair because of weakness in my back muscles.
‘It was clear: eventually I would become bedridden by my disease. I wanted to forestall that fate as long as possible.
Then it occurred to me to search for vitamins and supplements that helped any kind of progressive brain disorder. Slowly I created a list of nutrients important to brain health and began taking them as supplements’ Terry Wahls
