This is day 7 of the Anxiety Summit. Dr. Izabella Wentz – PharmD, author of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis: Lifestyle Interventions for Finding and Treating the Root Cause is interviewed by host of the Anxiety Summit, Trudy Scott, Food Mood Expert and Nutritionist, author of The Antianxiety Food Solution.
Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Anxiety
- Why hypothyroidism can sometimes feel like anxiety and the definition of autoimmunity
- How common is it and an overview of the best testing
- The role of the gut and food intolerances
- The key nutrients: zinc, iodine, selenium and more
Here is a great gem from my interview with Izabella:
When the thyroid is attacked by the immune system like in Hashimoto’s it results in the breakdown of the thyroid tissue and thyroid hormones are rushed into the bloodstream, causing a transient overactive thyroid and anxiety symptoms.”
Remember that the thyroid needs to be functioning well for the amino acids to be effective.
I highly recommend Izabella’s book Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis: Lifestyle Interventions for Finding and Treating the Root Cause and love Izabella’s great content-packed Facebook page Thyroid Lifestyle
