Hashimoto’s thyroiditis effects nearly 10 percent of the U.S. population—that’s almost 31 million people! And while this autoimmune disorder is the leading cause of hypothyroidism, it is still greatly misunderstood. Luckily, when Dr. Izabella Wentz found out she had Hashimoto’s in 2009, she was unable to accept the common prescription that comes with this diagnosis—a lifelong effort to mask her symptoms through medication. Determined to find a better way, she used her medical background as a pharmacist to research the underlying causes of her condition, and then she published her results in a New York Times best-selling guide called Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. This self-published book sold over fifty thousand copies, becoming one of the go-to sources for understanding the theory and causes of Hashimoto’s.
Now, in Hashimoto’s Protocol, Dr. Wentz has brought together updated research, patient stories, and practical action steps to create an assessment-based, 90-day protocol that gives readers a personalized roadmap to a healthy life. It is filled with quizzes to help readers dig down to the root cause of their immune system imbalance, which could be anything from an imbalanced gut to underactive adrenals to an infection. By focusing on simple lifestyle interventions based on readers’ specific root causes, this book helps dismantle the vicious symptoms of Hashimoto’s piece by piece. In these pages, readers will learn how to remove triggers, restore equilibrium, and allow the body to rebuild itself, so they can feel better, reduce their thyroid antibodies, and even take their condition into remission.
In the last few years, as more information has surfaced about autoimmunity, the internet has become a breeding ground for misinformation, which has led to a great deal of confusion about Hashimoto’s. Because proper treatment needs to be based on the root cause of each individual’s condition, what works for one person may not work for another. Hashimoto’s Protocol will provide a much-needed sigh of relief for people trying to wade through the noise.

Izabella Wentz, Pharm.D., FASCP is a passionate, innovative, and solution-focused clinical pharmacist, who, as a young girl, dreamed of finding a cure for a disease. This dream led her to obtain a doctor of pharmacy degree and work as part of an interdisciplinary team that consulted on thousands of complicated patient cases. Through these experiences, she quickly became well versed in finding and evaluating emerging research about both medical and lifestyle interventions to help address her clients’ unique challenges.
After being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis in 2009, Dr. Wentz was surprised at the lack of knowledge about lifestyle interventions for Hashimoto’s, hypothyroidism, and autoimmune conditions. So she decided to take on lifestyle interventions as a personal mission in an effort to help herself and others with Hashimoto's.
After years of research and testing, she was able to discover the root cause of her own condition—plus many other possible causes—and how to treat it using a whole-person approach. She summarized her findings in the self-published, New York Times best-selling book Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis: Lifestyle Interventions for Finding and Treating the Root Cause.
