About

Dr-Izabella-WentzYou’ve likely read my book, Hashimoto’s: The Root Cause (now a NY Times Bestseller) and are looking for some further guidance with getting your health back.

Since the release of the book, I’ve advised thousands of people with Hashimoto’s, gathered numerous success stories, and gathered data on the most helpful interventions. I’ve now spent 7 years focused on researching Hashimoto’s. Unlike most doctors who focus on a variety of conditions, I’ve dedicated my professional career to helping people with Hashimoto’s.

I want to share everything I’ve learned with you, so that you can get your health back, but I am only one person, and want to make sure I can help as many people as possible.

During my training in public health and healthcare quality improvement, I was introduced to a hybrid health care model, the patient self-management group program for people with diabetes. This model was proven to produce better outcomes for patients compared to patients who only worked with a health care provider.

Patients who took part in the diabetes group program had a better understanding of the condition, better controlled blood sugar, fewer complications and were overall much more satisfied, and this was just using the conventional medical approach to diabetes!

I wanted to create a program of this sort for people with Hashimoto’s, but using a functional medicine approach, that would help a person identify and remove the triggers that were leading to their thyroid and autoimmune symptoms.

Over the last 18 months, I’ve been building this program and have piloted it with some of my clients, with much success, improving their health outcomes as well as reducing their dependence on the traditional health-care model.

This program puts the power in your hands, and will help you optimize your health, whether you are doing it alone, or working with a practitioner.

I’m so excited to share the Hacking Hashimoto’s program with you!!

About

Hacking Hashimoto’s is a patient self-management program, designed for Hashimoto’s patients to help them identify and address the various triggers of autoimmune thyroid disease and associated symptoms.

Why I Created Hacking Hashimoto’s

digestive-systemIn short, I developed this program to empower my family members, friends and clients with Hashimoto’s, so that they could make sure that they would have the best possible outcomes, while working with their own doctor or functional medicine practitioner.

In long, while working with clients over the past couple of years, I noticed that while some people only wanted to consult with me once or twice, many others really wanted ongoing support to help guide them through the Hashimoto’s maze.

Thus I found myself working very closely and frequently with a subset of my clients, and realized that the ones that had 10-14 sessions with me within a few months had better outcomes compared to the ones that just had a one-hour consult every three months. Unfortunately, this intensive type of approach was very costly for the clients and time consuming for me.

As time went on, more and more people found out about my consultations, but there was still only one of me with a limited amount of time in the day. As I try to follow the work-life balance I preach, I reluctantly resorted to referring clients to my waiting list and other practitioners, but was disappointed that people were not getting the help they needed.

Furthermore, while working with numerous clients, I began to see the same patterns time and time again, allowing me to develop a streamlined process to addressing Hashimoto’s. While Hashimoto’s is very much an individual condition, there are root cause commonalities and things that each person needs to do in order to get better.

I decided to take my deep dive client approach and turn it into a 12 week education program that goes over all of the strategies that I go through with my one-on-one clients, into a self-paced format, so that people would have access to all of the things I’ve learned about Hashimoto’s without having to schedule costly consults with me or another practitioner.

I designed the 12 week program to empower my clients with the strategies they needed, so that they could start improving faster, be in charge of their own health, and be less dependent on health care providers.

Here’s What Others Are Saying

I’m really excited to share that the prior three releases of Hacking Hashimoto’s were a great success! I asked some of your fellow Root Cause Rebels for their thoughts on the program. Here are their answers:

QUESTION: What outcomes have you seen from participating in the program?
Understanding all Hashimoto’s issues, this knowledge which makes me more empowered, less stressed and with hope to cope with them. I’ve got plenty of useful and practical information for implementing things and Dr. Wentz has helped me interpreting things that other doctors didn’t understand.

QUESTION: What did you find to be the most helpful about the course?
Everything. It is very well organized. Lessons have practical and useful information for understanding the issues but also to solve them. Very useful the recommendations on what and how to do things: specific supplements, doses, when is best to take them, etc.

QUESTION: Would you recommend this course for others? Why or why not?
ABSOLUTELY! It is a wonderful course to learn about your body, it gives you hope, it gives you a community of people that are also experiencing the same things you are, and Dr. Wentz is a wealth of information! Also, the way that Dr. Wentz structures her talks is filled with patience and calmness — a great quality to have in an educator!

QUESTION: What outcomes have you seen from participating in the program?
Thanks to this program, I have been able to get rid of many of my symptoms. The links to labs/tests, and the other resources were so helpful and helped us take charge of our health!

Hacking Hashimoto’s Testimonials

Going into this program I had already made many interventions and reduced my TPO but was still suffering from joint pain, weight gain, and digestive issues. I believe through the liver detox and implementing many of the suggested supplements have helped me loss some weight, reduce (almost get rid of) joint pain, decreased my gut issues (still some minor issues). I’d recommend this to anyone that’s suffering from Hashimoto’s.

—Lori C.

I am less fatigued, experience less mental fog and confusion, I don’t have to sleep for 12 hours everyday anymore, my hair isn’t falling out as much, my chronic pain is going down (YAY!), I can exercise again, my stomach problems have SIGNIFICANTLY decreased, and I’ve even lost a little around my midsection. Not to mention I’m happier! The best part is that I have a game plan for my road to recovery! Thanks Dr. Izabella — you truly are wonderful and I have so much gratitude for you. The knowledge you have given me is invaluable.

This class is a must for anyone with Hashimoto’s. The information in the course is leaps and bounds ahead of traditional doctors and endocrinologists. Doctors either don’t know or won’t take the time to work through this information with you. I had never heard of H Pylori before this course and it turns out I have it. I am in the process of eradicating it and hope to continue to reduce my antibodies. Thank you Dr. Wentz for your continued research.

—Kelly B.

Within one day of signing up for the program, I found my root cause. I took the root cause assessment which showed high risk for yeast and then I started putting it all together. The incessant itch in my ears and belly button, the fungus on my toenails, the white coating on my tongue, all the antibiotics I’ve taken…the fact that my health started to go downhill right after taking antibiotics. It all made sense. I have been struggling for the past 3 years because of Candida overgrowth! Now I know exactly what I need to do to get rid of it, feel better, and stop the attack on my thyroid. Thank you so much Izabella!

—Rachel D.

I thought that I knew almost everything there was to know about Hashimoto’s and how to treat it. I was on the right track after reading Hacking Hashimoto’s, Finding the Root Cause, however, I was so wrong, the course expanded my knowledge in ways that I never expected. I learned so much about my body and what was happening that I knew exactly what I needed to do to get better. With each intervention, my symptoms got better and better. Now, in a few short months I’m hopeful for a remission, and to be off my thyroid medications. This was the best thing I could do for myself!!

—Maryann M.

My knowledge of Hashimoto’s. My faith in remission. My stress because of unsolved health problems. When I started the course I was about to give up because I was getting worse again and I didn’t know how to stop that, and now I know it can be stopped. Following Dr Wentz’s recommendations I’ve just started new implementations and I’m looking forward to improving and remission.

I have learned SO much! I believe that all of this learning will be put to good use some day when I am better, that I may help others reach vibrant health like I hope to reach vibrant health now! :)

My hope for healing. My understanding of where my body is at (ie I have a parasite infection that I need to take care of, as well as a need to see a Lyme’s specialist, as well as taking care of my adrenals and opening up my detox pathways (MTHFR).

This course has been AWESOME and I am so grateful to have had the chance to learn from you, Dr. Wentz! Thank you again for all that you have helped us with!

Hacking Hashimoto’s FAQs

HOW WILL YOU CUSTOMIZE MY PROTOCOL?
You will have access to the Root Cause Assessment, a detailed assessment that I’ve been using with my clients over the last two years, using before and after lab work as a marker to measure the efficacy of the assessment. After the launch of our last Hacking Hashimoto’s program, I was able to further refine the assessment ,which allows us to tailor your program to YOUR unique situation (viral, leaky gut, SIBO, heavy metal toxicity, bacterial overgrowth, etc). This assessment should save you $1000-$2000 in expensive lab work, helping you identify a root cause and is a viable starting point.

WHAT IS THE COURSE FORMAT?
The 12 week course will include video recordings overlaid with presentations slides.

DOES THIS INCLUDE THE COST OF SUPPLEMENTS?
Supplements will cost extra, however you will have access to a 10% discount for professional supplement brands. Not everyone will need every single supplement!

HOW LONG WILL I HAVE ACCESS?
You will have access to the Hacking Hashimoto’s program for one year and you will be able to access it at any time.

DO YOU HAVE A PAYMENT PLAN?
Yes, we will have a payment plan in place. You will be presented with the payment options upon checkout.

WHEN DOES MY LOG-IN GET DELIVERED?
All logins will be delivered within one hour of registration. If you have not received your log-in within 24 hours of signing up for the course, please check your spam box, and if you are still missing the log-in, please email program@thyroidpharmacist.com

WHAT IF I HAVE HAD MY THYROID REMOVED?
Most thyroid conditions result from the immune system attacking the thyroid because the immune system is out of balance. Even when the thyroid is taken out surgically, is ‘ dead’, or treated with radioactive iodine the autoimmunity still persists in most cases. Many people will have their thyroids removed, and will develop new autoimmune disorders such as Lupus, Rheumatoid arthritis, etc. The immune system just finds a different target We need to rebalance the immune system to prevent this (sometimes the autoimmunity can be reversed as well!) The gut determines your immune system. With the exception of discussing proper thyroid medication dosing, the majority of my website, this program and my book focuses on balancing the immune system. The info I present is based on my own research in journey for overcoming my autoimmune thyroid condition.

I ALREADY EAT CLEAN BY EATING PALEO/AIP? WHAT MORE CAN I DO?
The fact that you already eat this way tells me that you empowered yourself to take your own health back. Optimizing your health starts with food. Figuring out which foods nourish you, and which ones cause you harm is the single most important thing you can learn in your health journey. While diet is extremely important, there’s so much more like optimizing your medications, detox, healing your gut, addressing your adrenals, supplementation, infections, etc.

WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE TIME OR FIND THIS TOO HARD?
This program has worked for my clients time and time again. It’s also what the latest trusted research shows to be effective for the long-term, and what some of the top functional medicine doctors and practitioners in the world do with their patients with stellar results. Like you, I also didn’t have the time but I also decided my health was more important to me than anything else. Without my health, I couldn’t have written my book, created this class, and reached over 170k people to get their health back in the last several years. I’ve realized once you do get your health back, you can finally live up to your full potential. Outsourcing your health to someone else hardly ever works. You have to be empowered in your health journey and you must be educated. No one is going to give you your health back. Not even me. Those that make their health a priority above all else are the ones that I continually see get better.

I LIVE INTERNATIONALLY. CAN I STILL TAKE THE PROGRAM?
Yes, you can access the membership site from anywhere as long as you have high-speed Internet and email access. You can access the membership site with all of the content and material at any time.

HOW MUCH TIME DO I NEED EACH WEEK?
You will need at least 3-4 hours/week but this differs for those who are at different stages of their health journey. Each weekly session will last approximately one hour. Depending on your situation and symptoms, you may also benefit from additional resources I recommend. Please note that you will have to spend time on your own with implementation. Thus, make sure you include time for grocery shopping, cooking, supplements, labs, doctor visits as well as building in time for your own self-care.

HOW DOES DIET WORK WITH THE PROGRAM?
The Hacking Hashimoto’s program will focus on optimizing your diet, and you will have access to recommended recipes and meal-plans while taking the course.
