This book may have just given me my life back
EDIT 9.17.2017 people keep seeing this and liking it So I feel that I need to address here, not just in the comments, that this was all crap What I wrote was true that I found myself and my symptoms on page after page of Wentz s book And it was true that her story of health in response to her measured actions as detailed on the pages of her book gave me hope The problem, however, is that after following all of the protocol it didn t work At all I spent hundreds and hundreds of extra dollars on h [...]
I have mixed feelings about this book It is extremely informative and well researched I totally appreciate that the author herself struggled with Hashimotos and stubbornly worked to put it in remission I actually think that s paramount In my mind, that gives her writing weight and sympathy.However, all that being said, I found the advice to be contradictory and overwhelming I understand that part of that is the nature of the disease It is extremely difficult to pin down solutions, and any solut [...]
Hashimotos Thyroiditis Lifestyles Interventions for Finding and Treating the Root Cause by Izabella Wentz is a book to help people who are suffering from Hashimoto s thyroid disease, an autoimmune disorder that destroys the thyroid gland I definitely learned a few things, but in a nutshell, it always seems to boil down to diet and stress Supplements and probiotics are also important Find out what you re sensitive to, like gluten and dairy, etc The absolute hardest part to me is the diet Food to [...]
I was diagnosed with Hashimoto s a few years ago Since then, it s been a roller coaster, as I continually work to feel better I m also a scientist by training, and the idea of finding and treating a root cause of a disease, rather than just the symptoms, is really, really attractive to me Hence, buying and reading this book.Aaaaaaand I have a lot of problems with it I fully respect that Dr Wentz knows her own life, process, and body, and I completely believe that what she did worked for her I ha [...]
Normally, I m not one to write reviews, but this is the book I ve been waiting for I have been searching and searching and I feel like I just stumbled onto a gold mine I was just diagnosed with Hashimoto s in May 2014 not knowing anything about this disease and I ordered this book It is my go to reference book I have highlighted, put notations in margins, stuck sticky notes on pages, and copied quotes Following all of the advice on nutrition and supplements from her book on Hashimoto s has compl [...]
Completely indispensible when it comes to understanding the thyroid and how to care for it, as well as how to determine the root cause s of your own autoimmune disorder so you can address those and help put your disease into remission.The author is a Hashimoto s patient herself as well as a pharmacist, so the book is full of science and data Rather than finding this boring, I find it incredibly helpful, because I now understand exactly how the thyroid works and exactly how to read bloodwork leve [...]
Finally, a book that explains Thyroiditis and what you can do to help it besides just pills.
What a great book Highly recommend it to any one who suspects they may have thyroid disease There is so much information packed into this book and it is very well organized and easy to read This is a book worth owning, as I will probably keep referring back to it.
Easy to read not too techie Isabella herself is an inspiration Several possible good plans for healing.In real life its still not simple making many life changes yet this book is a very helpful resource.
Great book Big focus on healing the gut Understandable but may lean on the technical side Great read nonetheless.
Full of valuable information My highlights Well established environmental triggers for developing Hashimoto s in those who are genetically predisposed include iodine intake, bacterial and viral infections, hormonal imbalances, toxins, and therapy with certain types of medications In people with Hashimoto s, only 50 percent of their identical twins presented with thyroid antibodies, meaning genes alone are not the single defining factor and environmental triggers play a critical role When scienti [...]
More like three and a half stars, really I loved the first half of this book, where she explains what s going on with Hashimoto s and the different tests for it, and why so many doctors don t diagnosis it correctly She could have been writing about my situation exactly The next part of this review is of a personal rant, but it is relevant to this book and why the information is so necessary I recently went to the doctor complaining of the following 1 Experiencing many hypothyroid symptoms extre [...]
The author is a pharmacist who has been diagnosed with Hashimoto s Thyroiditis HT She gives lots of technical information with tables and charts and extensive lists of supplements and dosages On page 324 she gives her personal history of symptoms and and illnesses and ends with her diagnosis of thyroiditis HT This book is her personal journey of getting better with HT She gives lots of interesting recommendations, but never pinpoints much, she just punts to we are all different and all react dif [...]
Recently diagnosed after I had my first child The drs just gave my synthroid and sent me on my way, but I was still experiencing chronic fatigue, mood swings, depression, anxiety, dry skin, heart palpitations, weight gain, and hair loss This book has changed my life I am gluten free, dairy free, and on supplements I am starting to feel so much better.
Really fascinating at least for a biomedical geek like me and very encouraging It might be overwhelming at first but I d rather have lots of options to try and the reasoning and research behind them Of course, I hope you never have to read this but I m glad its around.
Because I read this book, I knew what medication to ask for when I saw my endocrinologist This is definately a book to keep close by if you have hasimoto s because you will want to refer to it often
I got this as a paperback from and came HIGHLY recommended to me It was well written and full of good advice, but I found some of it too technical for the layperson I was lost in the chemistry explanationsybe I will have to go back and read it again section by section.
Very helpful with plenty of new information.
This is a must read for anyone with Hashimoto s Thyroiditis
Great book Easy to understand, good advice, well laid out Highly recommended
Excellent book for anyone with fatigue, weight issues, or suspected Thyroid issues Great read
Easy to read Very informative.
All I ever wanted to know and then some
I was diagnosed with Hashimoto s half of my life ago, and sometimes I forget that it is not normal to feel at least mildly crappy all the time Over 20 years, two pregnancies, countless medication adjustments, and repeated searches for a good doctor whenever I moved to a new city, I ve experienced periods of visible goiter, crushing fatigue, hives, eye problems, swollen legs, sudden weight fluctuations, hair loss, chronic digestive issues, insomnia hypersomnia It s a roller coaster ride, and trea [...]
The science about thyroiditis was over my head She s a pharmacist read chemistry geek Even though I didn t understand what to her was probably a simplistic explanation, the fact that she had studied it so thoroughly gave me confidence that she knew what she was talking about The formatting in this book made parts difficult to read, but the information about supplements and diet was helpful Her evidence was mostly anecdotal, but I m beginning to see that all those double blind studies run by phar [...]
I got this book from a friend when she learned I was diagnosed with Hashimotos I picked it up and started reading it months later after another friend mentioned it on Facebook Boy, the things I ve learned, but most baffling is that my doctor, who diagnosed me, doesn t know a thing about treating it This book is helping me already When I was diagnosed, my doctor recommended I supplement iodine into my diet I wasn t doing very well and didn t know why, but when I read the portion of the book about [...]
This book helped me understand different symptoms of Hashimotos and various digestive, neurological symptoms are related to thyroid dysfunction Many of them are things I ve been asking medical professionals about for years After reading this book I started doing research on autoimmune disorders because I realized all these years I ve thought of myself and been treated as a hypothyroid patient and what I really am is an autoimmune thyroid patient The strategies for healing are much diverse when [...]

Sadly, no doctor will can spend the amount of time on a patient necessary to really figure out what is really going on in THIS particular individual This book helped me immensely to understand what Hashimoto s is and what steps I can do to make myself better and make the medications I m on effective I highly recommend this book to every patient in order to fill in the gaps that our doctors omit.
