Izabella Wentz is one of the leading pioneers in the movement to raise awareness and elevate the standard of care for thyroid diseases. From The Thyroid Secret, her 9-episode documentary series that reached half a million viewers earlier this year, to her bestselling book Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis: Lifestyle Interventions for Finding and Treating the Root Cause, this is one lady on a mission!
Her newest offering for the autoimmune thyroid community is a book called Hashimoto’s Protocol: A 90-Day Plan for Reversing Thyroid Symptoms and Getting Your Life Back. While her first book was focused more on science and theory, Izabella returns with an incredibly actionable protocol-based book for anyone who wants to do everything they can to manage their thyroid conditions with a combination of natural, conventional, and DIY approaches (you know we are big fans of this style of approach here at Autoimmune Wellness!).
In this new book, Izabella provides a framework for three foundational protocols (targeting the liver, adrenals, and the gut), which when applied consecutively take three months to complete. At that point, readers can take some self-assessments and dig into one or more of her advanced protocols that are meant to target specific areas of the healing journey and uncover some root causes.
Three things I love about Hashimoto’s Protocol:
- It is actionable. This book is for all the people that have already encountered the research (perhaps in Izabella’s first book, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis: Finding and Treating the Root Cause) and just want to get started. Izabella presents three foundational protocols to support the liver, adrenals, and gut, which take 90-days to complete. After the foundational protocols, you can choose to move on to various advanced protocols as indicated by handy assessments provided in the book.
- It is approachable. While there are a lot of protocols in this book, they are simple (while still being effective), safe, and gentle enough for those with autoimmune disease. I can’t stress this benefit enough – so many books have great tips and ideas for those guiding themselves on their own journey, but many of them miss the mark by creating protocols that really should be customized and supervised by a doctor. Izabella’s advice here covers areas that everyone with autoimmune thyroid disease should address, and can address, safely with her recommendations.
- It is flexible. It is kind of an anomaly to have a book that is both prescriptive as well as adaptable, but that is just what Izabella has created here. Within the framework of her protocols, you can customize and adapt to your unique situation.
Izabella has been an incredible pioneer and advocate in the world of thyroid disease, and I’m excited that she has produced another fantastic book for our community.
