Dr. Wentz is so incredibly knowledgeable about Hypothyroidism, especially Hashimoto's. It is all about finding and treating the root cause (underlying cause), and how one get learn to do this. Such a complex autoimmune condition, but explained in such an easily understandable way. If a person with this autoimmune condition really and truly wants to recover, and learn how to live a productive, happy, and peaceful life, this book is a must. I don't think I could have learned as much as I have, had I not read this doctor's book. She is a true advocate for patients. It is an excellent and valuable resource to read, and study...at all levels in the development and intervention of Hashimoto's. I think I will be able to learn much, and help others too, by continually referring to specific instructions and explanations now. I have learned an incredible amount of information, and have even taken notes. I have shared information about this with those that I know, like why one can still gain weight, what tests are best, and even why this disease is often misdiagnosed. It's one of those books where one can keep it, re-read it, and use it always as an invaluable resource. That is exactly what I plan to do with it too!
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!
Since being diagnosed recently in January 2013 I've been searching for more information on Hashimoto's Disease. I was excited after finally knowing that while I have this disease, that I can fix things to make my life a bit easier. With Izabella Wentzs' research and knowledge that's been compiled in this book, it's surprised me with how many factors that bring it all the pieces of the puzzle together with the triggers I've personally had. Anything that jumps out at me in the book with what I've been seeing in myself, I highlight it in my book and keep reading. The graph of the process of Hashimoto's is straightforward, the amount of information in this book is nothing short of astounding. I feel like such a lucky person to have gotten diagnosed when I did and running into this book with endless amounts of information and knowledge.
Thanks Izabella for not quitting on this book. Words cannot express my gratitude. Thank you blazing a trail in this grey area and wanting to make a difference in the lives of others not only through your profession but through this book as well. Thanks to you I can troubleshoot my symptoms much easier without the guesswork so I can live better than what I have. This is just the beginning but I'm glad I have this book to help me with my personal journey.
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.
