I was so desperate about the state of my health that I started on the Wahl diet on Friday. I’ve seen posts about this diet, which consists of a plate of greens, a plate of onions/leeks, a plate of red/yellow/orange fruit or veg and 4oz of meat every day, and no gluten or dairy (for the first couple of weeks! after that you can add them back in and see if you see any deterioration). I started this on Friday lunchtime. By Saturday evening, I could lift both legs high enough to walk upstairs (just using my leg muscles, not my hands). I haven’t been able to do this with my left leg for a couple of years and over the past couple of months I have had to lift my right leg with my hands as well. The improvement in my stair climbing hasn’t been consistant - I’m not so good in the mornings, better by noon and for the rest of the day.
My bladder control has improved, but I’m still taking the Regurin. My leg didn’t twitch last night, even though I didn’t take the Clonazepam that I normally have to take. I have tried going without it before but always been woken by leg twitches. My sleeping was really messed up last night - I woke at 3.30am and couldn’t sleep again. I think this might be because I no longer need Fampyra. I started taking this back in October - it improved my walking and also meant that I went from sleeping for around 10 or 11 out of 24 hours back to a more normal 8.5 hours.
I’m finding it hard to believe this diet can work so quickly but I can’t believe I’m imagining it either. These are really concrete things - you should have seen my husband’s face when he saw me walk upstairs - he really could not believe his eyes. I know there have been posts about the Wahl diet on here but can’t find them by searching for ‘Wahl’ or ‘Wahl diet’. Has anyone else had experiences, good, bad or indifferent with this?
