TMHS 220: Lose Stubborn Fat And Heal Your Thyroid Function With The Hashimoto’s Protocol – With Dr. Izabella Wentz

With the rapidly growing rates of Hashimoto’s disease, either you or someone you know will be stricken by this disease if we don’t do something about it.

Hashimoto’s is hot right now. Not in a Zoolander hitting the runway kind of hot, but a full-fledged epidemic featuring the fastest spreading autoimmune disease in the nation.

Dr. Izabella Wentz had Hashimoto’s for years and didn’t know it. It just about wrecked her entire life (as you’ll learn about today), but it was also an amazing gift in disguise.

After years of struggle, she was able to successfully put the disease into full remission. Now she’s on a mission to share the life-changing strategies she discovered with the millions of people battling Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. The rub is that many of the people with Hashimoto’s don’t know that they have it. It could be expressed in chronic fatigue, stubborn body fat, constipation, hair loss, memory lapses, or many other symptoms. It’s important to know the signs, but it’s also important to know the right testing. We’ll definitely be covering both of those today.

So, why is Hashimoto’s so prevalent in our world right now? What makes our thyroid so special? Why is conventional medicine failing in treating this disease? You’ll discover that and so much more in this very important and timely interview today. Just click play, take good note, and enjoy!

In this episode you’ll discover:

  • How growing up in a doctor’s office shaped Dr. Wentz’s passion for medicine.
  • The surprising (but not uncommon) way that Dr. Wentz was treated by her own doctors.
  • What the term “incurable” really means.
  • How conventional medicine treats Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (and what is missing).
  • How prevalent Hashimoto’s actually is today (this will shock you!).
  • What some common (and overlooked) symptoms of Hashimoto’s can be.
  • How the immune system functions like a private investigator.
  • The 3 factors that must be present for Hashimoto’s to occur.
  • How gut cells and thyroid cells are connected.
  • Why some people can eat gluten and live without any negative symptoms.
  • Which environmental triggers can disrupt thyroid function.
  • How fluoride suppresses thyroid function (you need to know about this!).
  • Why your liver plays a huge role in thyroid health.
  • What adaptive physiology is and how diseases work (in a weird way) to help us.
  • How stress contributes to thyroid disease.
  • Which essential nutrients are needed for healthy thyroid function.
  • What the correct thyroid tests are to identify Hashimoto’s.

    Thank you for this episode. I heard you on The Mike Dolce Show. I did more research after that episode and went to your podcast. As I scrolled through your episodes and came across the word Hashimoto I was compelled to listen because it hits close to home. I have a 13 yr. old who was diagnosed two years ago with Hashimoto’s on top of suffering from Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease (ARPKD) since birth and cirrhosis of the liver also diagnosed two years ago. I have tried to talk to her specialist about what could be done on our end to help her have a healthy life. The answer that is always given is to continue with her prescribed medication and continue with the follow up appointments. I am always wondering what more I can do to help her. I can’t thank you enough for this episode.
