The great new book called Hashimoto’s Protocol by Dr. Izabella Wentz just made #1 on the New York Times bestseller list!
Since I’m in Australia I have a kindle edition of Dr. Izabella’s brilliant new book that just released last week: Hashimoto’s Protocol: A 90-Day Plan for Reversing Thyroid Symptoms and Getting Your Life Back. It’s a must-read if you are dealing with Hashimoto’s or actually any thyroid problems (or if you suspect you may have thyroid issues)!
If you are a practitioner I highly recommend it too!
Here’s the official blurb:
Dr. Izabella Wentz, the author of the phenomenal New York Times bestseller Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, returns with a long-awaited, groundbreaking prescription to reverse the symptoms of this serious autoimmune condition that is becoming one of the country’s fastest growing diseases.
More than thirty-five million Americans currently suffer from Hashimoto’s—an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid gland and causes the body to attack its own cells. To alleviate the symptoms of this debilitating condition—including chronic cough, acid reflux, IBS, allergies, chronic pain, hair loss, brain fog, and forgetfulness [plus anxiety and depression] —patients are often prescribed synthetic hormones that have numerous life-altering side effects.
But there is a better way.
Diagnosed with Hashimoto’s at twenty-seven, pharmacist Dr. Izabella Wentz knows first-hand the effects of the disease, as well as the value—and limitations—of medication. The key to improved health, she argues, involves lifestyle interventions. In Hashimoto’s Protocol, she outlines a proven treatment that has helped thousands heal and many others feel better—in as fast as ninety days.
Drawing on her own personal experience as well as her work consulting with thousands of patients, Hashimoto’s Protocol offers a practical pathway for healing and reversing the autoimmune damage at the root of the disease. The first step is a quick-start two-week detox that includes foods to eat and inflammatory foods to avoid, advice on supplements to support the liver, and an adrenal recovery plan. Next, readers create a personalized plan with foods, supplements, and other lifestyle interventions tailored to their body’s own unique Hashimoto’s triggers, which they can identify using self-tests included in the book. Hashimoto’s Protocol also features original recipes.
Grounded in the latest science, Hashimoto’s Protocol is the first book to offer a proven protocol by an acknowledged expert in the field to treat this condition without dangerous hormones—and help sufferers reclaim their lives.
Izabella has done a wonderful job! I love that she covers the basics like liver support, the adrenals and gut health and then goes into advanced protocols for trauma, infections, toxins and nutrient deficiencies! I really LOVE how she dives deep into the newest research and connects ALL the dots in a really smart way!
And even if you don’t have thyroid issues you would benefit from these sections that are applicable for everyone:
- Root Cause Liver Support Protocol — how to support your liver by clearing detox pathways so that you’re able to release toxins and get your energy back.
- Adrenal Recovery Protocol — how to reset your response to stress so that you can regenerate your body.
- The Gut Balancing Protocol — the right nutrients so that your gut starts working at its optimal level.
Here is a snippet from the Liver support section:
Halogens and halogen-containing chemicals: These chemicals include bromide, chloride, and fluoride; are structurally similar to iodine; and may take up receptor sites in the thyroid gland. Unfortunately, their presence in the thyroid gland can
lead to thyroid cell death and inflammation. Individuals exposed to high levels of halogen-containing substances have been found to have higher rates of thyroid antibodies.
Chlorine: When found in polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), chlorine has been shown to be toxic to thyroid cells and to promote the onset of Hashimoto’s through increasing TSH, thyroid antibodies, and thyroid size. PCBs are found in industrial products. Chlorine is also found in water systems, pools, cleaning products, and plastics.
Bromide: This can be found in baked goods, plastics, soft drinks, and even our mattresses, which are coated with brominated flame retardants. Studies show bromine-containing substances—polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs)—are connected to an increased incidence of Hashimoto’s.
Fluoride: This thyroid-suppressing halogen is found in water, toothpaste, and some medications as well as in black, green, and red tea. Using a reverse osmosis filter is the best way to get rid of fluoride.
The gentle two-week Liver support section
will guide you on how to eliminate hidden toxins from your everyday life and how to help your liver process out the toxins you may have in your body. Both are critical steps for anyone who’s had problems with taking supplements or is struggling with current symptoms. Most people see drastic changes just by completing this step alone.
