About Me

MS Recovery Expert & Educator 

Internal Medicine Physician

Who Am I?

I’m an internal medicine physician by training, and I practiced in the outpatient landscape in this capacity for 15 years in the Atlanta metro area, the last 7 years of which I began to increasingly infuse holistic wellness into my practice. This was well received by my patients, who then brought on friends and family members to see this doctor who could see you for an entire visit, and often only recommend supplements and certain lifestyle changes, rather than prescribe a medication, or order expensive tests.

I stopped practicing internal medicine in 2021. I am turning my lemons to lemonade, and using my disability experience to help lift others up.

Now, I have moved into the holistic wellness space, as an MS recovery expert & educator, based on my experience & success in living with Primary Progressive MS. I was diagnosed in 2016, but like many, I’d been declining for decades. I have gained a lot of knowledge about nutrition, supplements, appropriate lifestyle changes, mindset, fitness, rehabilitation, complementary & alternative medicine, as well as biohacking. I cannot wait to share it all with the world.

I am not against the conventional management of MS. On the contrary, I encourage you to continue to partner with your doctor but add on alternative and adjunctive therapies, that MS patients are having success with, to improve your overall quality of life.

I aim to show you how to lower the burden of illness and disability from MS on your chronic illness journey, through holistic practices.

I am The MS Educator!

 

More About Me

I was born in the United Kingdom, and I was raised in Nigeria and the United Kingdom.

The Atlanta Metro Area is where my family calls home. That is the love of my life, Layi, our amazing teenage daughter Jordan, and our dog Whoopi.

I love to read, and I am ecstatic to finally be getting to my huge To Be Read TBR pile, with a little help from Audible.

I also love to watch TV with my family.

But most of all, I love, love, love to travel with my family.

This is probably the part where you’re starting to wonder if I am an introvert. Yes. I am an introvert. And I do introvert things like write quite a bit.

More Praise, from the MS Community & Social Media

 

“I experience incontinence [Urinary]. I was sharing that in our Clubhouse room. Dr. Taylor shared with us that she used cranberry pills. I ordered it and told another gentleman who was experiencing that, and recently diagnosed with MS, for which doctors were prescribing meds. He just shared with me that he’s got a serious improvement from incontinence, and so am I.”

“I just wanted to reach out and thank Dr. Taylor for being there, and sharing this with us, because incontinence is a serious issue with MS patients, and some have to use diapers. I’ve been downtown today in Chicago for hours. I didn’t have this kind of freedom before, because for people who have incontinence, you’ve got to go to the bathroom, and when you’ve got to go, you’ve got to go.”

“To cut a long story short, I’m experiencing THE quality of life and I just wanted to say thank you.”

I have known Folake since childhood. I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2019. I knew who to turn to for help.  I made contact with her and am still very emotional about how supportive she was to me.  She was the only person that could really understand my daily struggles.  She shared her experiences with me. She bought me the Dr. Whals Protocol book. She shared with me the nutritional/dietary changes I need to make, the exercises etc.

She was careful not to share with me all of her own struggles as she knew I was not in a healthy ‘mental state of mind’ at that time.  Therefore, her concerns and emphasis was always about my mental state as I was going through depression and I didn’t even know it at that time.  I recall one of her messages to me was ‘Toyin, I will hold your hand to fight this MS and you wouldn’t have to go through some of the things that I have been through’…this still makes me teary to date!

I being an Accountant by profession, the first thing I asked her after going through her website is how do you make money from this seeing you have made it free of charge! I guess this just about gives a glimpse about the heart of FolakeTaylorMD. A Doctor at heart and by profession.

“I’m a person that has dealt with Dr. Folake Taylor. And I would like to say how amazing she is. She has been with me about her story with MS, and my story with MS, and along our journeys, she has been so informative, about toxins, about food, about what even to store our food in. Eating clean is so important, and she so knows all about this, and is so willing to share this information.

“So many doctors don’t have this information, or are not willing to share it. She completely goes out of her way to share this information. If you ever, ever want to reach anybody about MS, or about anything, somebody you know is on the spectrum, please, talk to Dr. Taylor. I would highly, highly recommend her. She has been in some of my Clubhouse rooms, and she has been so informative. I could say on a scale of 1-10, she’s a 15.”

“So please, if you ever need any information, just ask Dr. Taylor. She’s always more than willing to be helpful. If she doesn’t have the answer, she’ll find them, and then she’ll share them with you. She is amazing… I would call this doctor anytime, any day, any week!”

“Dr. Taylor was quick and ready to help. Her response to my request for guidance and motivation in my journey with MS was not expected. Most people wouldn’t have responded if they even opened the message at all, but she responded quickly and got right to business! I really appreciate the suggestions given thus far. And on top of helping with MS, I believe her biohacking steps to prevent covid vaccine side effects helped me get away with only a sore arm.”

“I can’t wait till her program gets off the ground fully. It’s just what the MS community needs.”
