The Important Role Of Meylin

Myelin is damaged in a wide variety of conditions, including autoimmune conditions, infection, trauma, neurodegeneration (as in Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s), and simply aging. 

The result of this damage can lead to changes in mood and memory, sensory disturbance, pain, weakness, incoordination, heat intolerance, balance problems, dizziness, and recurrent vomiting that can be constant or intermittent.

Billions of dollars are being spent on developing drugs that improve the body’s ability to repair damaged myelin, and currently, there are several drugs that have been shown to improve myelin repair in animal models.

To understand the important role myelin plays in our health and how we can create an optimal environment that promotes healthy myelin and reduces the risk of disease, I have curated this six-part lecture series. 

In it, you’ll learn what myelin is, how it’s made, what damages it, and how it can be repaired.

After completing this course, attendees will have a more complete understanding of the biology of myelin, how drugs come to market, which remyelination drugs have early promising data, which natural products have early promising data, and why drugs and products that work in animal models typically fail in human trials. 

In addition, attendees will gain a greater understanding of the factors that create a neurotoxic environment that increases the severity of myelin damage as well as the behaviors that promote myelin health and repair.

Here's What's Covered:

  • PART 7: Understand the Role of Your Life and Health Timeline in Your Current Health Issues.

    In part 7, we will discuss the role that the events of our lives can have on the health issues that lead to damaged myelin. You will be encouraged to complete a review of your life events and health timeline and map exposures to toxins, severe psychological stress, severe physical stress, isolation, loneliness, low levels of physical activity, and nutrition quality. We will discuss symptoms that suggest issues with gut health, microbiome, mitochondria, toxin load, and hormone problems.

  • PART 8: Improving Gut Health

    In part 8, we will look at the role of the gut in myelin repair. We need to have proper digestion and assimilation to absorb the nutrients that are the building blocks for making and repairing myelin. This module will review the factors that may interfere with digestion, what may cause increased intestinal permeability, also known as leaky gut, and the strategies to help heal a leaky gut.

  • PART 9: Growing Your Internal Motivation to Improve Your Health Behaviors

    In part 9 we will learn how to create the motivation to support adoption of new, desired health behaviors and how to stop engaging in undesirable, disease-promoting behaviors. We will review the Wahls Behavior Change™ Model, a 15-step process for helping people more successfully adopt and sustain improved diet choices and better health behaviors.

  • PART 10: How to Utilize a Health Coach to Increase Your Success with Adopting and Sustaining Health Behavior Change

    In part 10, we will discuss how a health coach supports patients in their healing journeys. Sports teams and businesses use coaches to improve the performance of individuals and teams. Now, many functional and integrative trained physicians are using health coaches to help their patients make specific, measurable, action-oriented, relevant and realistic, and timebound goals to improve their health behaviors.

  • PART 11: How to Utilize Validated Questionnaires and Biomarkers to Assess Your Cellular Function and Support Your Remyelination and Wellness Plan

    In part 11, we will review how to use questionnaires to assess your current burden of symptoms and level of function to obtain a numeric score, allowing you to follow your symptom burden and function over time. We will also discuss blood tests that assess metabolic and cardiovascular health and the ranges for these blood tests that indicate you are at higher or lower risk for myelin damage.

  • PART 12: How to Conduct a Variety of Functional Tests on Yourself with the Help of Your Family

    In part 12, we will review tests that you can do with help from another adult to assess your thinking, hand coordination, strength, balance, and endurance. These tests have been used by physical therapists, occupational therapists, and physicians to assess patients’ risk of falling and ability to live alone. These tests are a terrific tool for assessing neurological function and knowing if things are stable, worsening, or improving.

We’ll explore in detail what you can do to improve the environment for myelin repair

Including specific recommendations for health behaviors, foods, and supplements that support remyelination

Who will benefit from this workshop?

This workshop is designed for people with a neuroimmune or autoimmune process affecting their brain, spinal cord, or nerves. Brain, spinal cord, and peripheral autoimmune disorders include, but are not limited to, optic neuritis, neuromyelitis optica, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, multiple sclerosis, transverse myelitis, neuro-sarcoidosis, Neuro-Behcet’s, Hashimoto’s, vasculitis, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus, Sjogren’s syndrome, and chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy.

This workshop is also for people who have had damage to their myelin through traumatic brain injury or post-brain/spinal cord infections, such as chronic Lyme disease or other tick-borne infections. The course will also be useful for anyone who wants more strategies for healthy aging, because damage to myelin accumulates and the ability to repair that damage declines as we age

This workshop will increase your confidence in approaching your health challenges related to damaged myelin, whether that’s from rounds of cancer chemotherapy, post-infection damage, traumatic brain injury, or an autoimmune disorder.

When you’re committed to creating better health, you want Dr. Terry Wahls to lead you along the way.

Her method has become a sensation, transforming the lives of people with autoimmune diseases. Dr. Terry Wahls outlines the latest research that validates the program and offers new, powerful behavior modification tools to help you achieve optimal health.

The Wahls Protocol®, A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles comes out of Dr. Wahls’ own quest to treat the debilitating symptoms she experiences as a sufferer of progressive MS.

Informed by science, she began using Paleo principles as guidelines for her unique, nutrient-rich plan. This book shares Dr. Wahls’ astonishing personal story of recovery and details the program, with up-to-date research she’s now conducting at the University of Iowa.

Dr. Wahls has been featured on the television show The Doctors, in Reader’s Digest, and other widely read publications.

The information in this workshop was informed by the research she has used in her primary care clinics, traumatic brain injury clinics, and therapeutic lifestyle clinics at the Iowa City Veteran Affairs Hospital.  She also uses this program in her clinical trials and in her private practice.

While your health care team can tell you what you need to do to master autoimmune dysfunction—Dr. Wahls will show you how to do master your diet, lifestyle, and environment to usher in a new future of hope and healing.
