Have you ever noticed that when we focus on our problems, we tend to find even more problems?
The last two years have brought many challenges, and life can be full of ups and downs on any given day.
As we welcome the holiday season and get ready for a new year, we may find ourselves at a crossroads…
Do we focus on negativity, or is it possible to choose gratitude instead?
I suggest taking a minute to reflect on what is really going on in your life:
- Where is your focus?
- What’s taking up the most space in your brain and heart?
- Have you hit roadblocks with your health that have discouraged you?
- Is the stress of current events causing a health setback?
I invite you to recognize and reduce the negativity that might be trying to seep into your life, and focus on some positive things.
We all know how stress can exacerbate symptoms of Hashimoto’s, so who knows… maybe reading this will not only be informative, it might also be healing! 🙂
I want to share one thing that I’m grateful for, and that is you!
Thank you for trusting me with your health journey. To play a small role in your victory is not lost on me, and I am so grateful.
The fact that people are using my solutions to heal is incredible and humbling.
Today I want to focus on the real people and the stories of those who have implemented real-life solutions, to help heal their Hashimoto’s.
Now, let’s celebrate these stories and get you on the road to recovery too!
In this article, I share powerful success stories from readers who have implemented the solutions in my books:
- Hashimoto’s: The Root Cause
- Hashimoto’s Protocol
- Hashimoto’s Food Pharmacology
If you have a moment, I encourage you to scroll down to read about the transformations that other readers have experienced. Healing isn’t just for them, it’s for you too… and I can show you how.

My First Project, Hashimoto’s: The Root Cause
Hashimoto’s: The Root Cause is dear to me because it was my first grassroots project that reached more people than I ever dreamed possible.
This book is a guide to help you identify and remove the triggers associated with thyroid autoimmunity. In it, I recommend lifestyle interventions that aim to dismantle the vicious cycle of autoimmune thyroid disease piece by piece.
I start by teaching you how to make simple modifications to identify and remove triggers. Then, I show you how to repair the broken systems. This allows the body to restore equilibrium and rebuild itself.
There are over 2,700 five-star reviews, and I want to share a few with you!
“I bought root cause about 8 months ago. I started following the protocol. My antibodies went from 1200 + down to under 100 since then and I’m taking lower and lower doses of my compounded meds and cytomel. My Dr is amazed. I’m thrilled! Thank you! Another great side affect is I’ve lost 47 lbs during that time as well.”
“This book saved my life! Seriously, if you have any type of thyroid dysfunction, this book helps you determine the root cause. And, then it doesn’t stop there. Additionally, it walks you through what treatments you can try to help you recover and function properly. I have Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and had thyroid surgery to remove 1/2 my thyroid 5 years ago. I started reading this book, and just in the past 3 months, started taking the recommended supplements, in addition to my Armour Thyroid medication. I can’t tell you how awesome I feel. My energy is through the roof!! Recently, I got my blood work done and my doctor said, ‘I don’t know what you’re doing, but keep doing it!!’ All my levels are adjusting nicely and there’s a noticeable difference in the way I feel. I’m even exercising regularly now. Thank you Izabella Wentz for helping me through this difficult time. I am strong and on my way to becoming super healthy and active! Knowledge is power!”
“This is the book to read if you have been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. This book will assist you in analyzing you symptoms, what tests are necessary, what test are optional, which foods to avoid, which foods can benefit you and supplements to further assist you in your journey to better health and living a healthier lifestyle. This is the best money I have EVER spent. After being diagnosed for 30 years with hypothyroidism and being sent home with a pill and told to lose weight and my problems will be solved; I was sick and ‘sick’ of hearing those words from multiple doctors. After reading and following this book, I feel so much better and that is the tip of the iceberg. My health journey started and now – Energy is up, brain fog a thing of the past, aches and pains gone. Arthritis is a thing of the past. After only 9 months, I have loss 45 pounds and eat three meals and snacks everyday. Now I understand what to eat and to never go hungry again. My world has changed. I’m looking forward to tomorrow. Thanks Izabella for writing this enlightening book. I had to read it twice as it is so packed with information.”
“One year ago I bought this book when I was desperate because Synthroid, etc were not getting the job done. I was fatigued, achy, weepy, had hair loss, the list goes on and on. The guidelines in this book set me on the right path to healing. Not only am I back to my old self, I’m better than my old self! I feel so empowered now. All my life, I suffered from daily headaches, but my doctors could only give me pills to hide the pain. Now, through diet, supplements, etc, to address my Hashimotos, I have rid myself of so many nuisances (including those headaches) that I thought were just part of daily life. I feel healthier than ever! It’s not easy, but oh so worth it!”
I’ve always wanted to help people, so having the opportunity to share what I’ve discovered about Hashimoto’s is a dream come true. When I was sick, I didn’t know how much my story would impact others’ lives. Back then, I felt a lot of anxiety and pain, and I had a lot of questions, but it was difficult to imagine any positive impact.
Now that I’m on the other side, I can honestly say I’m so grateful for my journey. You never know how your trial today may impact someone else’s life tomorrow.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed by your diagnosis, I believe with all my heart that you can get better, like these readers did.

The Busy People’s Roadmap to Healing: Hashimoto’s Protocol
There are many different root causes of Hashimoto’s, but I’ve found that there are steps you can take that can help 80 percent of people feel significantly better.
My second book, Hashimoto’s Protocol, was born after years of research and working with thousands of people with Hashimoto’s.
This book takes a targeted approach and outlines specific steps that teach you how to start feeling better in as little as two weeks. This protocol has helped many people to eliminate symptoms and recover their health, in 90 days!
Hashimoto’s Protocol has over 2,400 five-star reviews, and I’d like to celebrate these successes by sharing a few with you!
“I’m four weeks into the protocols following Dr. Wentz’s advice. I felt less tired after two weeks; TSH has improved. On day 21 my brain fog lifted! I’m now a believer. I’m finding this book to be filled with all the ‘right’ information–theory and practical, including recipes! It’s well-organized, clear, readable and not too hard to understand. 🙂 I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting a better understanding of low thyroidism, including possible causes, tests that will give you important information on understanding your body, and practical info on how to go about healing yourself.”
“Izabella Wentz makes it so easy to follow the implementation program, to adhere to it and be disciplined. I had read her previous book which helped a lot but with this book Izabella gives concrete steps, and also the best supplements. On example: instead of taking a digestive enzyme for several months with no effect, I took the one Izabella suggested (my new Integrative Doctor also suggested it), followed her instruction on how to take it for the past 4 weeks. I am also having now a varied veggies and a high protein breakfast. My persistent pain in the lower back, due to injury, for the last year has disappeared in the last 3 days. My early morning tiredness is also gone. It is absolutely wonderful Izabella shared her story helping others.”
“This book changed my life! I was so frustrated before cause doctors hardly knew anything about hypothyroidism. When I heard there was a diet that help put it in remission (or get close to it) I was excited. I went from a TSH score of 13 to 1.2! Im more regular now, my skin and hair have improved, I lost 12 lbs, my memory improved, my periods became less painful, I have a better time focusing, and I feel better about myself!! I HIGHLY recommend this book! Do yourself a favor, read it cover to cover and start her diet. You will absolutely notice a change.”
“I was misdiagnosed with hypothyroidism in 1998. After going through continued problems weight gain, joint problem, foggy brain, skin problems I received the proper diagnosis in 2005. Even after the correct diagnosis the doctors still treated me the same way, just blood test and adjusting medication. I tried every diet I could find including paleo. Paleo was the diet that helped relieve symptoms. However when I lost weight I would stall at 20lbs then gain it all back and then some. It was not until I preordered your book Hashimoto’s Protocol that I had any hope. I received your book on March 28th, and started the Protocol on April 2nd. I follow Autoimmune Paleo. All my joint pain is gone, the fatigue has lifted, my mood has brightened and so fare I have lost 42lbs. I have started Physical therapy to regain strength in my hips. The key for me was dealing with the root cause. Because of your book I found out that I have Epstein-Barr. I began taking LDL and Munity boost. I also take Pure Stress relief along with a variety of herbs. My doctor is so overwhelmed by my success she has taken notes and referring your book to other patients. I am still on my journey to good health, but I am feeling much better. I have another blood test for EBV at the end of August and I am expecting good news. I feel that I have my life back. Thank you so much for your books, and sharing your journey with the world.”
Hashimoto’s has this way of intertwining itself into the very fabric of our lives. It uproots us, causes chaos inside of us, and often impacts every aspect of our health and life. I hope you’ll find these protocols easy to implement so that you can get back to living the life you deserve.
I have a feeling that as you read this book, you’ll become inspired and empowered to join the thousands of others who have said, “Enough is enough,” and have taken back their health!
Wherever you are in your process, now is the time to start fresh and start reclaiming your life. Here are some other success stories that readers have shared with me:

Discovering How to Use Food as Medicine: Hashimoto’s Food Pharmacology
If you’re looking to cook great-tasting food which you can also use as medicine, take a peek at my cookbook!
In it, I share the best strategies for making dietary changes an easy part of your life.
I also teach you how to support yourself through digestive enzymes and proper nutrients. Once these start working in your body, your whole system becomes transformed into a safe place, and you will be able to receive the nutrients you need to heal.
Here are some of the reviews:
I love this reader’s gratitude. ❤️
“I want to thank you for responding. I have implemented your cookbook in my everyday life for the past month and a half. And am almost done with your hashimoto protocol book.
I’m 27 and this is when I got fully diagnosed with hashimotos as well.
Although the experience part was challenging, I’m so thankful you wrote this and were such a light in providing such helpful information and reassuring the rest of us.
My TSH levels have dropped from 7.8 to 2.20. And autoantibodies from 657 to 474 in 1 month and a week 🙂 From following your tips and diet/lifestyle change and taking no medication (none was given to me)
My pcp and endocrinologist didn’t believe it was diet/lifestyle change alone 🙄
But I can feel it truly is. So thank you.”
Easy to prepare, follow, and tastes amazing!
“Really love this book. It’s full of vital information and has really helped. Her recipes are easy to prepare, follow and taste amazing. There is a range of recipes and not just simple salads as previous review suggested (salmon and parsnip fish cakes are definitely a favourite). This has educated me To know what I should be eating to feel better. Would definitely recommend to anyone who suffers from thyroid issues.”
I couldn’t agree more with this reader — It’s never too late to take control of your health.
Anyone with autoimmunity can benefit!
“You don’t need to have Hashimoto’s to benefit from this book. Most of the nutritional guidance and recipes are appropriate for anyone who wants to control ANY autoimmunity or just plain optimize health. I love that most of the recipes do not take a lot of preparation, and even those of us with fatigue should not find them daunting. For example, Creamy White Chicken Stew is essentially four simple steps: briefly precook a few items in oil, add ingredients and boil, add more ingredients and simmer until done. There is only one step for Bigos (Polish Hunter’s Stew): ‘Place all ingredients in a slow cooker, mix, and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.’ I also love that many of the recipes are accompanied by a beautiful photo of the finished dish; honestly, this is what draws me to a particular recipe. As someone with a lot of food sensitivities, I am delighted that this cookbook magically contains more recipes without any offending ingredients than any other cookbook I own. Dr. Wentz puts her heart and soul into everything she does, and this book is no different. Her passion shines through.”
Even those reluctant to dietary changes:
“This is God send! I reluctantly tried few recipes and I can feel improvement, so on my shopping list I replaced few items for the ones recommended in the book.”
And this reader found that foods could help keep her warm!
“I’ve been cold my entire life. In the summer I wore sweaters and even sweatshirts. It wasn’t until recently that I heard of Hashimoto’s and thought, ‘That must be what I have!’ I was excited when I found out that I could eat foods that would make me warm. I’ve only tried a few recipes from this book, but they were really good. The recipe in the picture is SAM salad […]”
