Dr. Izabella Wentz is a leader in the field of Autoimmune Thyroid Disease, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, and an internationally acclaimed thyroid specialist. Dr. Wentz is a clinical pharmacist, who was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis in 2009. She was quite sick, but had a passion and desire to get well again.
She went on to write a New York Times Bestselling book, "Hashimoto's Thyroiditis: Lifestyle Interventions for Finding and Treating the Root Cause." This fantastic book is the result of her three years of research and two years of testing. This testing resulted in her recovering her health, and returning to the vibrant person she was prior to getting sick.
She combined emerging research with her clinical expertise to identify and remove the triggers that caused her to develop Hashimoto’s. The main stream medical system operates on the premise that thyroid medications are the only treatment for people with Hashimoto's and hypothyroidism, and that there's no way to halt or reverse the autoimmune disease process once it starts.
"Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis: The Root Cause" dispels that myth and shows how specific lifestyle interventions allow the body to rebalance and halt the autoimmune process and allows the thyroid to recover.
She is extemely personable, and a really lovely lady. She graciously shares so much knowledge with the public, and has made it a mission to help as many people as possible.
She has found that so very many people with thyroid issues have had incorrect testing, an incorrect diagnosis, as well as many being completely undiagnosed all together.
If you continue to suffer many of the classic Celiac or gluten intolerance or sensitivity problems, even after switching to a gluten free diet, it's well worth some time to review Dr. Wentz's material. It can give you an initial next step to investigate. She shares what tests to get done, to see if you do actually have a thyroid problem. And if you have Hashimoto's or other similar thyroid conditions, her protocols can be a life saver.
Since she's also a pharmacist she has a deep understanding of the needed thyroid medications, and part of her protocol is getting people on the best form of medication, and how to meticulously monitor it, so it best serves you.
Along with the medication management, she's developed solid and tested lifestyle protocols to really work towards getting well. Her programs include searching for the root cause. When that can be found, it will provide a much clearer picture of how to maximize your health. Even when it can't be found, there's so much that can be done, and massive improvements in your health can be made.
She is very generous and creates weekly videos on Facebook, as well as having been interviewed many times over the years, by other health sites, and hosting her own Summit, titled "The Thyroid Secret."
She also writes weekly, and has years of articles available on her website, to help with the specific nuances of auto immune disease, and in particular Hashimoto's.
