What if you could dramatically
reduce your symptoms
in 2 weeks or less?
What if you could dramatically reduce your symptoms in 2 weeks or less, and do it as a working professional, stay at home mom, college student or just overall busy person? I have good news: I’ve created an innovative program for the people who want to feel better but just haven’t had the time to make it happen.
Imagine a life not ruled by your symptoms. What would you do?
I lived feeling sick for over 10 years. I felt dominated by my symptoms, yet life kept going.
I felt like I was trapped in my body, trying to keep up with my schedule, yet I felt terrible every single day.
But I chose not to stay in that place, and you don’t have to either. You don’t have to feel like you’re losing out on life anymore.
You Can Achieve Your Dream of Health.
When I was originally working on achieving remission 9 years ago, I didn’t start off with liver support. (Oh, how I wish I’d known about it!) But through years of research and client study, I’ve found it’s a crucial component that kick starts the recovery process.
I’ve poured my heart and all my energy into this step-by-step guide, and I am so excited to share it with you!
It is called the Root Cause Reset, but I should warn you… this is not your average detox program. Doing a regular detox when you are sick, can actually make you sicker.
The Root Cause Reset supports the liver with 4 easy steps to jumpstart your healing, making you feel brighter, happier and more alive — quickly.
Step 1: Remove Trigger Foods – Discover which foods are known to be triggers in autoimmune conditions, and how removing them can reduce symptoms (sometimes overnight!)
Step 2: Add Supportive Foods – I love using delicious foods to nourish and support the body back to health—this is truly using food as medicine!
Step 3: Reduce Toxic Exposure – Toxins are part of everyday life, but there are many ways that we can reduce how much we interact with them. I’ll show you how to GREEN your life!
Step 4: Support Detox Pathways – Toxins need to exit safely and effectively, and this gentle Reset will support you—without overburdening your system.

Could the solution to your thyroid symptoms start with your liver?
When our body reaches a certain level of toxicity, antibody antigen complexes see the thyroid and believe it’s a foreign intruder. They sound the alarm and begin attacking it. A civil war ensues, and no one can tell who’s the bad guy and who’s the good guy.
For some people, a toxic exposure can trigger autoimmune thyroid disease, and the symptoms that accompany it. This is why it’s crucial to support the liver, to get the toxins out safely and effectively.
If any of these symptoms sound familiar, I recommend you keep reading…
With a healthy liver, our bodies can utilize our own thyroid hormones as well as our thyroid medication, much more efficiently. Once you learn to support the liver, you will be able to tolerate additional lifestyle changes and supplements much better.
I’ve designed the Root Cause Reset to guide you through how to nourish and support your liver, and give your body a fighting chance to get better.
I know what it’s like to have nagging symptoms plague your everyday life, making you feel limited in your potential. But it doesn’t have to be like that anymore.
To ensure all program members experience the best outcomes, my team and I are constantly analyzing the results, and looking for ways to make the program even better. We recently interviewed several Reset participants to hear their stories, find out what worked for them during the Reset and how they feel today. These are Taylor and Erika’s stories:
New dad, Taylor I. says his life post-Reset is 100% better
He says he received “FREEDOM from chains of Hashimoto’s. FREEDOM from a defeatist attitude.”
“My experience with the program was nothing short of remarkable. The first benefit that I experienced was a renewed sense of energy after weaning off caffeine. Because I struggled with low energy for years, I thought that I needed more caffeine to keep me going, but I learned that this was just taxing my adrenals and making things worse. This was another amazing aspect about the program – the knowledge and positivity that Dr. Wentz shared along the way that made me feel more prepared to deal with my Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. The next big change that I noticed was the need for less thyroid medication, because my own thyroid (and body) were working more productively as I cut out caffeine and stuck to my supplements and Goddess of Detox dressing. I actually recall posting in the Facebook group that I had a noticeable increase in heart rate after taking my thyroid medication one morning, a telltale sign that the program was working and that I needed less medication. By the end of the program, I no longer had crippling fatigue, my joints felt as loose and lubricated as they did in my early 20s, and muscle weakness was a thing of the past, as I was able to lift weights and exercise intensely multiple times a week. The Root Cause Reset program changed my life, and I still use many of the strategies that I learned in the program, in everyday life.”
Today, Taylor has a girlfriend and a one-year-old little girl. He says he probably wouldn’t have had the energy to start a relationship or spend time with his daughter without getting the healing he’s received.
Erika M. wasn’t a morning person and felt cranky – ALOT!
Patience doesn’t come easily when fatigue and joint pain are part of your every day. Erika’s monthly cycle produced cramps that caused back pain, and her hair was falling out in chunks! She felt terrible and just wanted energy again!
Here’s what happened once she started the Reset:
“This protocol not only helped my joints but took my sugar cravings away. It helped my digestion to be much better, my skin looks great and my hair stopped falling. I’m looking forward to growing my hair back. The reset got me in a healthy routine, a great mindset and off of sugar. I lost 4lbs but more than anything I lost inflammation so I feel great. I learned a lot and will keep going with the protein smoothie and healthy eating. I also sleep much better and wake up earlier, which is a big deal b.c I’ve never been a morning person. Even my husband is surprised because I struggled before to get out of bed before the reset. I’m very thankful for all the guidance and support I got thru this healing Journey with the reset.”
Erika says her sleeping has improved, and now she wakes up before her alarm clock at 5:20 am!
She’s also experienced resolution in a few more exciting ways:
- Cramps are gone
- Antibodies dropped to 200
- Rarely gets headaches (can usually pinpoint it back to a food she ate)
- Has the energy to be present in her life
- Better hormone balance + better mood = better for everyone!
Another participant interviewed, shared that she didn’t realize how important the liver was to healing, but her results were remarkable!
“I had not focused on the liver in specific before […] I did not understand its relevance. But the clarity and results that I feel from following the program are remarkable. I feel so much more energy and almost no aches or pains and much more clear-headed. I now know exactly what to do to support my liver and I am grateful.“
Here are the Statistics that Reveal How Powerful Liver Support is to Your Body:
Over 70% of our Reset survey participants reported significant improvements in symptoms including having more energy, losing weight, being less inflamed, less anxiety, brain fog lifted, reduced headaches, improved mood, being less reactive to a variety of substances and more!
Why I Choose To Reset and NOT Detox
Back when I was in the thick of things, I tried detoxing with spirulina, and I developed a new autoimmune condition called giant papillary conjunctivitis. I would get giant pimples on the inside of my eyelids, and it was awful! After that point, I was no longer able to wear my contact lenses and had to resort to wearing either glasses or the expensive daily disposable contact lenses.
When a person attempts to detox too early, it can make the autoimmune disease worse, and it can even lead to another autoimmune issue. During a deep detox, if your gut and adrenals are impaired and you’re lacking nutrients, the toxins jump ship from the organ where they live and head somewhere else.
In my case, it was my eyelids, and it was miserable. I learned the hard way, so you don’t have to!
This Reset is Gentle and Supportive.
I want to emphasize the word gentle here (you might have noticed I’ve used it a few times!) 🙂 It is the main difference between the Root Cause Reset and traditional detoxes.
I do not recommend a deep detox to begin with because it could exacerbate your Hashimoto’s or other autoimmune conditions.
The Root Cause Reset is NOT:
- A forceful detox
- A juice fast
- A chelation protocol
It Does NOT Utilize…
- Coffee enemas
- High doses of iodine
- Putting your body in dangerous situations
Some people may respond well to traditional detoxification, however someone with an autoimmune condition may respond negatively because traditional detoxes have a tendency to pull toxins out of the body at an aggressive rate, which can overwhelm the already overburdened detox pathways.
The Root Cause Reset is filled with resources, accountability, and easy ways to incorporate healthy lifestyle changes into your everyday life.
The Root Cause Reset Specifically Focuses On:
- Reducing toxins
- Supporting your liver
- Helping toxins make a quick and safe exit
- Adding dense nutrients to your everyday life
- Discovering which real foods will strengthen your body
- Incorporating gentle herbs to aid and enhance the healing process (optional)
I want to set you up for total success, so the Root Cause Reset is a 30-Day Program, designed to ensure you have the best support you need before, during and after… However, you will begin to see improvements in as little as two weeks!
And it’s not uncommon to lose weight: Maria C. had trouble keeping weight off. She saw “multiple endocrinologists and functional medicine doctors, yet nothing they recommended really helped”… one even suggested weight loss surgery, others told her to “Eat whole wheat, and stay away from sugar.” She even tried Intermittent Fasting prior to joining the program, to no avail. In the first week of the Reset, she lost six pounds!

“The Root Cause Reset is an excellent tool to start your healing. All of the steps are clear and laid out for you. The Facebook group is an excellent resource and the nutritionist on the Facebook group is wonderful and answers many questions. It is the first program I have done that has been in real time with other people starting at the same point. We all start together and we all finished together. Most protocols you do not have the ability to ask questions in real time while you are actually going through the protocol. This was so valuable in my healing process. Thank you to the entire team!”
– Justine C.
People often ask me, ‘What Is Your Secret?’
You might wonder why I start with the liver when the gut is always an issue for people with Hashimoto’s. While I didn’t start with liver support myself, nor did I start clients there in my early work with Hashimoto’s protocols, I’ve found over time that it is absolutely the most effective place to start.
I used to look for the most obvious root causes and imbalances and address those first, but sometimes improvements took a long time to see. Once I started my clients with liver support, I found that most of them started feeling better in just a few short weeks — even those who had been working with other practitioners for months and years!
Starting with liver support has become my secret sauce, and has helped the majority of my clients feel significantly better in as little as two weeks.
One member said, “I think my liver smiled after the Reset!”

I was amazed at the improvements in my joint pain, fatigue, hot flashes and night sweats, better and more frequent bowel movements and better sleep! All in just a few weeks time. Thank you Izabella for all that you and your dedicated team do to help all of us with Hashimoto’s take charge of our health with programs like this! “
– Sharon L.
“Nearing the end of the final day, and I’m really grateful to have gone through the Reset. My joints don’t ache and my hands don’t feel arthritic, no charlie horses anymore, my skin texture has improved considerably, my eyes aren’t itching even in high allergy season, and I’ve lost 11 pounds when I haven’t been able to lose weight in years. All this in just 21 days. I wasn’t expecting that much benefit in a short time. It is really the boost I needed to keep going with these lifestyle changes […] Signing off a happy camper ☺️“
– Rachel W.
“I never thought I could exchange coffee for lemon water or eliminate entire food groups from my diet. But after day three I felt so amazing on this protocol that I never wanted to go back to the way I was eating before. This program gently eases you into massive diet changes and supports you every step of the way. Not only did I lose weight but I slept better and had a ton of energy. I found myself looking forward to the daily emails to find out how I was going to challenge myself that day. I have hypothyroidism and this program has been life changing for me, I’m so grateful my dietician recommended it. I would highly recommend the Root Cause Reset to anyone interested in improving their health and getting real results”
– Katherine A.
“It’s amazing the change that can be achieved in four weeks. I’ve always had dark circles under my eyes – even as a child – and they’re gone! In spring, my allergies are so bad I can hardly leave the house. I needed to take prescription medication and keep my asthma pump close. Now, I walk my dogs and appreciate the flowers around me. The Root Cause Reset is a game changer!“
– Liezl C., France
“The Thyroid RESET set me back on track. I lost 10 lbs very quicklyand safely. More import is that I feel healthier and have more energy and less pain. I started feeling better on day 3. Yes ,…that fast!! No caffeine cravings or sugar cravings. I even slept better . Yes I would recommend this program. And yes I will do it again myself. Thank you Izabella you have changed my life and opened my eyes!“
– Cathy C.
Yes, it IS possible to:
- Get your energy back
- Live free of brain fog
- Lose weight and keep it off
- Get rid of anxiety and depression
- Feel like YOU again
Through the Root Cause Reset, I’ll teach you exactly how to gain the most from your liver reset, which foods to remove, which foods to add, which supplements to get, how to makeover your home and lifestyle for effortless healing – no outside testing is needed!
You will see tremendous improvements in your symptoms as you do the Root Cause Reset, but in order to get 100% of the benefits, I do recommend using supplements. Not all supplements are created equal and I’ll teach you which ones are safe and most effective.
The only requirement for this program is a high-quality protein powder to take with your daily smoothies. Otherwise, you can do the Reset without utilizing the other supplements, and many people have successfully done so. In my experience, however, the best outcomes and optimal health happen when people use all the supplements, in addition, to the other changes made to their diet and lifestyle.
The Root Cause Reset has helped thousands of people feel better – even those who felt sick for years!
“Everything has changed: fatigue, brain fog, bloating, and joint pain. Before beginning this Reset, I was feeling lost and very depressed, I was experiencing joint pain constantly that was getting increasingly worse. I felt bloated always and just miserable. I was looking for a way, some direction, a plan I could follow, I felt desperate and then the ad popped up on Facebook for the Root Cause Reset. I was so desperate I said it’s worth a try, and here I am 27 days later and feel awesome. I do not want to go back to what I felt like a month ago. Thank you, Dr. Izabella! I feel like I have found my path.”
– Rachel F.
“This program has pulled me out of my 5 year funk and pointed me in the right direction! My thyroid nodule is getting smaller. The brain fog is gone. I am no longer constantly searching for words. My inflammation is going down. I’ve lost 13 lbs and feel like I’ve lost 25! I have hope and a clear plan to follow to help me feel like myself again. I found a trusted advisor in Dr Wentz. She’s been through it. So she understands what it’s like to feel so sick and lost when our bodies are working against us. She understands what its like to not be heard by multiple doctors. Dr Wentz uses a real whole organic food plan to show us how to feel better. She also formulated clean, high quality supplements to use along with the clean eating plan if we choose to. I was impressed Dr Wentz even lists quality supplements to buy from other companies. That showed me, her heart truly just wants to help people feel better.”

Still Not Sure if this Program is for You?
I get it. We’re all running around with full schedules and hardly have time to remember to eat! So I created this program for the busy mom, working professional, and everyday person who has a dream of living symptom-free.
There might be a little voice trying to tell you that you don’t have the time or the energy or you couldn’t possibly add another thing to your plate, and I get that, I really do. But can you afford to keep living the way you feel?
Can you keep sleeping 10+ hours, yet feel like a truck hit you the next morning?
Is it worth running the rat race, feeling like you’ll never catch up? Or that you’ve tried everything and nothing works?
“My energy level has improved greatly. I don’t feel bloated, I’m sleeping better (only waking up once during the night instead of multiple times) and I feel more well-rested in the morning. I’ve also lost 8 lbs. and my mental fog has lifted greatly. I come home from work and actually have the energy to do housework or take my dogs for a walk. My perpetual stuffy nose is gone and I’m regaining my sense of smell. I can’t believe the change I’ve gone through in one month! I never thought I would feel this good and have this much energy again. I actually feel like I did when I was younger! And I would encourage anyone serious about wanting to feel better to try this program. I decided to try the liver reset because I was tired of feeling like I had no energy & walking around in a fog. I was missing out on being active with my family & I felt like it was starting to affect my performance at work. After doing the liver reset I feel like my younger self! I feel mentally sharper! I would recommend this program to anyone who’s serious about wanting to feel better.”
This program is for you if:
- You’re ready to take back your health and shed your symptoms
- You’re committed to caring for you and to investing in yourself
- You want to learn more about how to take charge of your condition
- You thrive in being a part of a community
This program is not for you if:
- You are medically unstable and in need of urgent medical attention (please see a doctor ASAP)
- You are not willing or unable to change your diet or lifestyle (Please note: some of the recommendations may not be appropriate for those with histamine/oxalate issues. In these cases, I highly recommend working with a practitioner who can help you modify the program to your needs.)
- You want someone else to “heal” you without participating in your healing
- You are taking certain medications, including blood thinners, diuretics or steroid medications (Please consult with your practitioner before starting this, or any new program.)
YES! I am ready to get rid of fatigue, brain fog and lose weight with the Root Cause Reset.

I actually had the want to and energy to 1. Walk to my boys school this afternoon 2. Cook a full meal for my family And 3. Play catch with my oldest son after dinner. I was literally in a fog for a couple of years, no energy, frustrated and sad. I can’t explain it but I feel alive again!!! The Reset had really helped me get off caffeine and carbs. And I don’t miss them now!!! Good luck to you on your journey!!!!”

Frequently Asked Questions About the Root Cause Reset
I have an autoimmune disorder. What is realistic to expect from this program?
People with autoimmune disorders can greatly benefit from the Root Cause Reset program, as it focuses on clearing your home and body of toxins that can cause symptoms and poor health. Most participants report a decrease in symptoms and chemical sensitivities, as well as an increase in energy.
How will this Reset affect any medications I am taking?
The Reset supplements are generally safe to take while on thyroid medications. It is, however, recommended that you separate thyroid medications and supplements as instructed by your practitioner or pharmacist. (Most are to be taken 30 minutes to 1 hour after your thyroid medication; magnesium, calcium, and iron, 4 hours after).
This program is not for those on blood thinners, such as warfarin, diuretics or steroid medications. Consult your physician before starting this or any new program.
When will I start seeing results?
It may take a week or longer for you to feel any changes. Depending on what your lifestyle, diet, and health were like before the program, it’s hard to give an exact timeframe. Some people who are already following a Paleo diet and have made many of the recommended changes will report feeling more energy and clarity of thought over the course of the program. Others who are radically changing their diet may experience detox symptoms after starting the program. There are recommendations for supplements and interventions to help with these symptoms until they pass.
Can I exercise while on the program?
Sweating is an excellent way to lower your body’s toxic burden. As people with hypothyroidism usually have a lower body temperature, they often need to make an extra effort to sweat. This can be done by exercise, the use of saunas, hot baths, or my favorite: hot yoga. Just don’t overdo it, and please use good judgment. As a general rule, you should feel more energized after these activities, not more tired.
Are supplements included?
Supplements are not included, but are recommended for achieving the best results and can be purchased separately at a discounted price. As a program member, you’ll receive an exclusive 10% discount on supplements through Rootcology. If you choose to utilize the Rootcology supplements, the Liver Support Kit must be made as a separate purchase from our digital Root Cause Reset program.
Are all of the supplements required?
The only required supplement for the Reset is a high-quality protein powder. Otherwise, the supplements are not required. However, I do recommend them for achieving optimal results. In my experience, the best outcomes happen when people use supplements in addition to the other changes made to their diet and lifestyle, but many people have had success in completing the program without the use of supplements.
What if I want to do the program but have an allergy to one of the supplement ingredients?
If you have a known allergy or sensitivity to an ingredient in any of the supplements, please do not take them. There will be an alternate supplement guide for those who are sensitive to the ingredients in the Liver Reset supplement.
Please note: Some of the liver support supplements contain ingredients that are sulfur/sulphur-based. Sulfa (a medication) and sulfur/sulphur (a compound) are different. Sulfur/sulphur-based supplements should be avoided by those who are sensitive to sulfur/sulphur, however, the liver support supplements do not contain Sulfa.
Do I have to use your brand of supplements?
I’ve spent a great deal of time creating the Rootcology line to provide safe, clean, and effective products. All of the supplement ingredients have been carefully chosen by yours truly to address the needs and sensitivities of people with autoimmune thyroid disease.
- Gluten free
- Dairy free
- Soy free
- Pesticide free
- Free of artificial flavors and sweeteners
- Pharmaceutical grade
- Tested by a third-party
If you use another supplement brand outside of my recommendations, please understand that you’re doing so at your own risk, and I cannot vouch for its safety or effectiveness.
That said, there are many wonderful companies that make supplements. Look for products that are gluten free, dairy free and soy free, as well as for companies that have their products tested by third party vendors to ensure quality. If you are an international customer, there will be a guide available for international supplement alternatives.
Do I have to purchase your brand of protein powder?
A high quality protein powder will be an essential part of the program to supplement our daily smoothies.
I’ve spent a great deal of time creating the Rootcology protein powders, to provide safe, clean, and effective options that are autoimmune friendly. All of the protein ingredients have been carefully chosen to address the needs and sensitivities of people with autoimmune thyroid disease.
That said, there are many wonderful companies that make protein powders. If you cannot obtain the recommended protein powders, there will be a guide available to help you chose another compliant product.
However, if you use another protein brand outside of my recommendations, please understand that you’re doing so at your own risk, and I cannot vouch for its safety or effectiveness.
Can I participate if I live out of the country?
Yes, you can participate if you’re living out of the country!
All content and resources will be available in the Root Cause Reset Program portal for you to review at a time that is convenient for you.
Additionally, you may want to get a head-start on ordering supplements as sourcing and shipping may vary from the standard recommendations. However, there will be a guide available for international supplement alternatives to help you order, as well as a portal for a UK based supplement company that can ship to other countries.
Is there a support line or chat available? What support is offered?
We’ll have several Q&As during the program, where you will be able to send in your questions ahead of time, for myself and our resident nutritionist to review and answer on video. You will also have access to my customer service team members dedicated specifically to this program. They will be ready to answer your questions via email, however, please be advised that while they can provide support by directing members to resources and clarifying information, my team is unable to answer specific questions not covered in the program materials, provide personalized health advice, or interpret lab results, as they are not practitioners, and you deserve the personalized care of a focused primary care physician. We hope you understand.
Additionally, you will have unlimited access to a searchable database of Q&As from past participants, for instant answers to your questions! There will also be an exclusive Facebook group for program members. Comments posted in the Facebook group are responded to by our customer service team, health coach, and nutritionist, and are a wonderful way to get support from others in the program.
How long do I have access to the course materials and email support?
You will have access to the materials and email support for 30 days after the Reset concludes.
How do I prepare for the program? What’s the schedule?
Once the next session opens and you enroll, we will send you a schedule with all the important dates and information you need. We will have a Welcome week, beginning one week prior to the actual start date of the program. We will start Week 1 together, so that all participants who have signed up for this program can start at the same time. You can prepare by joining the Facebook group and downloading the files in the portal, which you will have access to after signing up.
Here’s the schedule we’ll be following over the course of the Root Cause Reset:
- Welcome: We’ll take an assessment quiz to check your toxicity score, and get you acquainted with the Reset protocol background and steps. This will be our prep week that includes a Kickoff video with me to set you up for success in the program.
- Week One: We’ll start week one with tips to reduce your exposure to daily toxins and get your supplies and supplements ready. We will also begin making our dietary changes.
- Week Two: We’ll cover detox strategies, give yourself a personal care makeover, and start your supplements. This week, you’ll also have the opportunity to submit your questions to be answered by me, in the Supplements Q&A video.
- Week Three: You’ll discover detoxification symptom management, improve your quality of sleep, get a cleaning products makeover, learn DIY cleaning recipes, and have another opportunity to get your questions answered, in the Food Q&A video with our nutritionist.
- Week Four: We’ll transition off Liver Support supplements and go beyond Liver Support (i.e. addressing Diet, Gut Issues, and Adrenal Imbalances) to get your thyroid into remission. There will be a final Q&A video with me, to cover next steps and your remaining questions.
- Wrap Up: We’ll retake the assessment quiz to see how your toxicity score has improved since starting the interventions at the beginning of the program.
Do I have to follow the protocol’s schedule?
The program’s protocol is designed for maximum success in the given time frame. All participants will be starting the program on the same date, and there will be daily goals and resources to follow over a specific timeline. You’ll be able to download content to work at your own pace, however I recommend sticking to the program schedule to get the most out of the program.
How much time is required each day?
Depending on the day, how committed you are, and how many of the interventions are completely new to you, it will vary from person to person. But, I recommend setting aside 30 minutes to 1 hour each day, to focus on the program. The people who have the best results set aside some time every day to plan the next step and make sure they are prepared, calm and have time to rest and recover. This is a special time to give your health your full attention.
Who should NOT do the program?
The Root Cause Reset supplements are not to be used with Addison’s, a history of electrolyte imbalance, diuretics, steroid medications, or blood thinners. Additionally, the program is not for women who are pregnant or nursing.
Some of the recommendations (such as recipes) in this program may not be appropriate for those with histamine/oxalate issues (though supplements may be helpful for these). Following a gut protocol may be more beneficial. As such, I highly recommend working with a practitioner who can help you modify this program to your needs.
Please consult your physician before starting this or any new program.
Do you have a payment plan?
Unfortunately, we do not offer payment plan options at this time.
Do I have to join Facebook to participate?
If you do not have Facebook, it may be beneficial to set up a temporary account to be a part of the group discussion. However, all necessary information to complete the program will be available within the Root Cause Reset portal.
What dietary changes are required?
You’ll be removing the most common reactive foods in Hashimoto’s: gluten, dairy, soy, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, and processed foods. However, individuals may be different in their triggers and needs. You can modify the recipes and meal plans provided in the program to accommodate your personal food sensitivities and dietary restrictions.
We’ll be replacing these foods with organic fruits, vegetables, and high-quality meats, and we’ll also be supplementing our daily smoothies with a protein powder. You’ll have access to guides related to ordering foods and meal prepping to help you with these dietary changes, as well as discounts and recommendations for the best protein powders.
Can I do this Reset if I am vegan / vegetarian / pescatarian?
Aside from the AI Paleo Protein Powder, which can be substituted with the Organic Pea Powder, or another compliant protein powder of your choice, all of the recommended Rootcology supplements comply with these diets. However, the dietary recommendations in the program may not be compatible.
While the vegan, vegetarian, and pescatarian diets can be helpful for a variety of conditions, I have found that about 30 percent of people feel worse on the vegan diet with Hashimoto’s, while only 27 percent feel better. This is in contrast to 88 percent feeling better gluten free!
Unfortunately, vegan/vegetarian sources of protein such as legumes (beans), dairy, grains, soy and some seeds may be incompatible with trying to heal a leaky gut, which is almost always present with Hashimoto’s.
Eggs, some seeds, and nuts would be the preferred sources of protein for vegetarians. However, some people with Hashimoto’s may be intolerant to those as well, especially in the early stages of starting a healing diet. So, it is important to try to add nutrient dense meats to maximize healing during this time.
Can I participate if I have Celiac disease?
Studies have found that about 1 in 5 people with Hashimoto’s also have Celiac disease. Most autoimmune conditions have common root causes, and a lot of times the things that are recommended for one autoimmune condition will help with others. I’ve personally seen my protocols help many clients with Celiac disease, so you can definitely benefit from this Reset. Consult your physician before starting this or any new program.
Will the program work for me with multiple chemical sensitivities?
Supporting the liver can be dramatically helpful for a person with Hashimoto’s. When we support the liver, we can actually address some of the toxic backlog that is present in the body. A person who was once sensitive or reactive to everything in their environment, as well as to any hormones, supplements, medications and foods, will end up feeling significantly better. After implementing liver support for one to two weeks, my previous clients were able to tolerate things in their environment much better than before.
How long will it take for my products to arrive?
You will be given access to the Root Cause Reset portal and introductory content immediately after purchasing. There will be one week of prep and then modules will be released weekly thereafter, following the course schedule.
Rootcology orders will be shipped within 3 business days of receiving your supplement order. Please allow an additional 2 to 3 business days for the product to be delivered. Items on backorder or shipping from multiple locations may require additional processing time.
What is the return policy on the Reset program?
If for whatever reason, you decide that the Reset is not a good fit for you and you want a refund, all you have to do is email our customer service department by Day 7 of the program, and we’ll get back to you within 24–48 business hours. This will allow you to have access through the prep week and check out one complete week of the digital program before deciding.
What is the return policy on supplements?
If you are in the U.S. and order Rootcology supplements, Rootcology offers a 30 day money-back guarantee on all products. If, for any reason, you are unsatisfied with a product, it may be returned to Rootcology within 30 days of purchase for a full refund, minus shipping/handling fees. Return shipping is paid by the customer.
If you are ordering from an international or other third party supplement supplier, please be advised that our company is based in the U.S., and while we did our best to source international vendors and supplements for those residing outside of the U.S, we don’t have any agreements with any third party, international vendors. While we try to ensure that products are available for all program members, there may be stock issues, shipping delays, tariffs, and packaging issues beyond our control.
What is the shelf life of the supplements?
Generally, Rootcology products “expire” 24 months after the manufacturing date, which is marked on the bottom of the containers. After those 2 years, the products are not unsafe, however, they may start to lose their potency.
What if I have already done the protocols in the Hashimoto’s Protocol book or another liver program? How is this program different?
People with Hashimoto’s may benefit from following a liver support protocol from time to time, to optimize their health. This program may still be beneficial to you if you are interested in being guided and getting personal support.
Each week, you’ll find videos, daily workbook activities, and email encouragement with tips that have helped others get well too. There are also exclusive Q&As, where you can submit your questions to be answered by myself and our resident nutritionist!
In the program portal, you’ll find guides, recipes, meal plans, and quizzes to ensure that you have the best outcomes. You will also have an amazing community to learn from and celebrate with, in our private Facebook group.
As a bonus, you’ll have access to discounted self-order options for many of the recommended supplements, a resource to self-order labs, and a Q&A database with answers to 100’s of questions from past participants!
I hope these questions are helpful for you. To be notified when enrollment reopens, enter your name and email below:
What Others Are Saying About the Root Cause Reset
“Hi Dr Wentz. You are truly a Godsend. I wanted to update you. I have completed the liver protocol and I am a week into the adrenal protocol. I know I told you I was feeling really good after the liver protocol. A week into the adrenal protocol and I’m feeling even better. I have a lot more energy, I’m thinking much more clearly, I am sleeping through the night and waking up refreshed. My bowels are moving regularly, and I haven’t had an IBS-D flare up in two weeks. I used to have them daily. My Gastroenterologist took me off my dicyclomine a week ago. My hair is starting to grow and today was the first day I had no hair loss in the shower. The first time in over 5 years. I was losing tons of it on a daily basis even though my thyroid levels were in optimal levels. Last night I got on my treadmill and walked a 1/4 of a mile. I felt rejuvenated afterwards. This is huge to me as I was very athletic till my dx of Hashi over five years ago. All I was able to do was go to work, come home, eat dinner, sit on the couch, watch TV for a couple of hours and go to bed everyday for the last 5+ years. I repeat, you are a Godsend. I have tried everything to overcome my symptoms and went to so many Drs but nothing helped me. Until God leads me to you. He truly answers prayers.”
– Colleen M.
“I loved how Dr. Wentz takes you by the hand & guides you step by step! She is so knowledgeable & really cares for each person who takes her program. I really enjoy the opportunity to have your personal questions answered by her personally. I learned so much from her. She has a great team as well that replies promptly if you have any issues.”
– Anna D.
“Allergies have improved, and I can eat certain foods again, such as cucumbers and bell peppers!”
– Carmen B.
“I am sleeping better, tummy pain is vastly reduced, palpitations are at a minimum, my skin is glowing and joint pain is gone! Generally feeling an overall sense of well-being. I am very thankful to Dr. Wentz for her guidance through the liver cleanse process and have experienced positive results. I found Dr. Wentz’s Root Cause Autoimmune Paleo Diet 2-week Recipe Plan free online several years ago. I implemented her protocol and it changed the quality of my life. I made copies and gave them to my sisters. A year ago I purchased Dr. Wentz’s book the Hashimoto’s Food Pharmacology. Now I have my daughter interested in “food as medicine.” Unbeknownst to me I attempted an aggressive liver cleanse two years ago and ended up in the emergency room. The Root Cause Reset has been healing, supportive and a great experience. I was even able to maintain the protocol with success while on vacation. I will continue to share my learned knowledge with family and friends. Thank you!”
