This book is a MUST read if you, or anyone you love, has autoimmune thyroid disease. Dr. Wentz, in addition to her professional knowledge, is a Hashimoto's patient herself. In that light, I have confidence in the advice she gives and the steps she recommends taking, especially as she has undergone many of the processes herself in her own journey to reclaim her health. As a healthcare worker with years of experience myself, including time in endocrinology, I have never heard any medical professional address Hashimoto's as the life-altering autoimmune disease that it is, until now. Dr. Wentz's book is a compilation of many layers of information that you won't get from your doctor, a comprehensive "go-to" guide that you won't find anywhere else, and gives one hope that there is SOMETHING that can be done to get your life back. As the title says, this book addresses all the potential root causes, or "triggers" of Hashimoto's, from viruses (such as Epstein-Barr) to leaky gut and food intolerances, to excess iodine intake, and so much more! While I cannot say whether or not one can actually reverse their Hashimoto's, I can say that Dr. Wentz's book will give you all the knowledge and tools you'll need to begin your journey back to the "old you". Let the healing begin!
I am not usually one to gush in reviews but I have to say, that Izabella and Dr Nowosadzka have done some incredible work compiling and analyzing ALL and I mean ALL of the information you need if you are on the path of suffering from an auto-immune condition. If you are living less than a full life and are motivated to do the work to change it, there is so much information in here that I am carrying it with me everywhere I go. Just implementing 2 of the hundreds of suggestions that are expertly laid out in this book, has already had a major impact. I am not needing a nap after meals! I am actually getting ready to go see a doctor and I am ready to ask the questions I need to get me to a symptom free existence. At the very least of all that is offered here is hope for long time sufferers like myself. The fact that life beyond sheer exhaustion and frustration is possible and is incredible. I am so impressed with not only how the information is laid out but how easy it reads. The fact that Izabella is a pharmacist, lends so much clarity to such a dense, overwhelming, and daunting experience of getting to the bottom of hypothyroid and arrest autoimmune attacks. If you are suffering, get this book. You will not regret it.
Izabella Wentz, a pharmacist, tells of her journey with this disease, but also teaches you who, what, where, when, why, and how of this disease and it's treatment. Having dealt with 13 doctors in 9 years myself, this book CHANGED my life as well as the FB support group that recommended it. If you or someone you know has this disease, you won't get much help from the medical community, you have to be your own advocate. PLEASE, spend the couple of bucks that will enable you to find your food triggers and help yourself. It is SO worth it! Izabella also responds to her emails, and you can make an appointment for a consult with her as well. Good luck to you in your healing process.
I've been diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis for about 14 years now, and learned more about this autoimmune disease within the 1st three chapters of Dr. Izabella Wentz's book, versus the 14 years under the care of 2 different Endocrinologists. The book provides sufferers of Hashimoto's some "light at the end of tunnel" and confidence in implementing a tactical approach ("DIG AT IT" approach, page 60) for managing their disease in understanding the uniqueness of their own personal healing and route in feeling BETTER -
1) Understanding the "triggers"
2) The best supplements to take
3) THE GUT RELATIONSHIP AND DIET!!
4) Recommended lab work and tests (that unfortunately MOST endocrinologist do NOT know!!!)
Dr. Wentz channels from her own experience with Hashimoto's in detailing the various factors that all Hashimoto's patients need to understand and manage effectively.
Most Hashimoto's patients are so fearful of mismanagement of their condition and feeling worse, this book helps remove the fear and educates you in getting your entire body back on the right track. Do yourself a favor, "DIG AT IT" and buy this book. Now! You've wasted enough time dealing with terrible doctors, start feeling better NOW!
The Thyroid Revolution is coming, organizers of it will be waving this book in their hands! New standards, methods and testing protocol for the clinical treatment of Hashimoto's Thyroiditis need to be addressed and implemented by medical community.
I have has Hashimoto' for well over 10 years and struggle everyday with symptoms of pain, fatigue, brain fog, insomnia, anxiety, brittle hair and nails, losing hair, dry skin, you name it! My labs have recently gone all over the scale ( from 0.3 to 50.0). So basically, the Hashi's is very active and out of control. I do take Armour which is the best med I have tried. But I have always thought there has to be something else that can control this roller coaster ride I have been on...this book explains what is happening to my body and suggests lifestyle changes that could help elevate major symptoms.
After reading only the first half of the book. I understand more about the disease and how to lessen the effects it has on my body. I can not say enough about how informative the book is. I have sticky notes, highlights, and book marks all throughout!!
The book has established it credibility with pages of research, peer-reviewed research, and helpful cross references of books by others who share unlocking the mystery of Hashi's.
I recommended it to everyone who wants to know what is going on with their thyroid and what you can do to ease its effort to keep up with your body. I am so glad I got the book and am going to send on to my endo. For him to read-- thanks for sharing your experience in order to help others.
