You may have read read Dr Izabella Wentz’s book, Hashimoto’s: The Root Cause (now a NY Times Bestseller) and are looking for some further guidance with getting your health back.
Since the release of the book, she’s advised thousands of people with Hashimoto’s, gathered numerous success stories, and gathered data on the most helpful interventions. Isabella has now spent 7 years focused on researching Hashimoto’s. Unlike most doctors who focus on a variety of conditions, she’s dedicated her professional career to helping people with Hashimoto’s. Here’s what she has to say….
I want to share everything I’ve learned with you, so that you can get your health back, but I am only one person, and want to make sure I can help as many people as possible.
During my training in public health and healthcare quality improvement, I was introduced to a hybrid health care model, the patient self-management group program for people with diabetes. This model was proven to produce better outcomes for patients compared to patients who only worked with a health care provider.
Patients who took part in the diabetes group program had a better understanding of the condition, better controlled blood sugar, fewer complications and were overall much more satisfied, and this was just using the conventional medical approach to diabetes!
I wanted to create a program of this sort for people with Hashimoto’s, but using a functional medicine approach, that would help a person identify and remove the triggers that were leading to their thyroid and autoimmune symptoms.
Over the last 18 months, I’ve been building this program and have piloted it with some of my clients, with much success, improving their health outcomes as well as reducing their dependence on the traditional health-care model.
This program puts the power in your hands, and will help you optimize your health, whether you are doing it alone, or working with a practitioner.
