Have you ever noticed that when we focus on our problems, it becomes too easy to find even more problems?

No one is immune to the ups and downs of life – circumstances change, we experience loss, and the ongoing noise around us can become overwhelming. In the midst of all this, we might tend to allow our focus to rest on all that is outside of our control.

But just because that might be the “normal” response, doesn’t make it helpful. I like to redirect my energy to the areas of gratitude and hope! Celebrating and sharing successes can shift our mindset, and is such a strong tool for healing.

My health challenges, once a burden, are now an opportunity to help so many people heal.

As we move through the holiday season and prepare for a new year, we may find ourselves at a crossroads…

Take a moment to reflect on what is going on in your life:

  • Where is your focus? 
  • What’s taking up the most space in your brain and heart?
  • Have you hit roadblocks with your health that have discouraged you?
  • Is the stress of current events causing a health setback?

Recognize and reduce the negativity that might be trying to seep into your life, and focus on some positive things.

We all know how stress can exacerbate symptoms of Hashimoto’s, so who knows… maybe reading this will not only be informative, but also healing!

I’ll start by sharing one thing that I’m grateful for – you!

Thank you for trusting me with your health journey. To play a small role in your victory is not lost on me.

The fact that people are using my solutions to heal is incredible and humbling.

Today I want to focus on the real people and the stories of how they have implemented tangible solutions, to help heal their Hashimoto’s.

Now, let’s celebrate these stories and get you on the road to recovery too!

In this article, I’ll share powerful success stories from readers who have implemented the solutions in my books:

  • Hashimoto’s: The Root Cause
  • Hashimoto’s Protocol
  • Hashimoto’s Food Pharmacology

Plus, I will share special links to amazing discounts that Amazon is offering right now on the books! If you want to see them now, click here.

My First Project, Hashimoto’s: The Root Cause 

Hashimoto’s: The Root Cause is dear to me because it was my first grassroots project that reached more people than I ever dreamed possible.

This book is a guide to help you identify and remove the triggers associated with thyroid autoimmunity. In it, I recommend lifestyle interventions that aim to dismantle the vicious cycle of autoimmune thyroid disease, piece by piece.

I start by teaching you how to make simple modifications to identify and remove triggers. Then, I show you how to repair the broken systems. This allows the body to restore equilibrium and rebuild itself.

There are over 2,900 five-star reviews, and I want to share a few with you!

“I bought root cause about 8 months ago. I started following the protocol. My antibodies went from 1200 + down to under 100 since then and I’m taking lower and lower doses of my compounded meds and cytomel. My Dr is amazed. I’m thrilled! Thank you! Another great side affect is I’ve lost 47 lbs during that time as well.”

“This book saved my life! Seriously, if you have any type of thyroid dysfunction, this book helps you determine the root cause. And, then it doesn’t stop there. Additionally, it walks you through what treatments you can try to help you recover and function properly. I have Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and had thyroid surgery to remove 1/2 my thyroid 5 years ago. I started reading this book, and just in the past 3 months, started taking the recommended supplements, in addition to my Armour Thyroid medication. I can’t tell you how awesome I feel. My energy is through the roof!! Recently, I got my blood work done and my doctor said, “I don’t know what you’re doing, but keep doing it!!” All my levels are adjusting nicely and there’s a noticeable difference in the way I feel. I’m even exercising regularly now. Thank you Izabella Wentz for helping me through this difficult time. I am strong and on my way to becoming super healthy and active! Knowledge is power!”

I’ve always wanted to help people, so having the opportunity to share what I’ve discovered about Hashimoto’s is a dream come true. When I was sick, I didn’t know how much my story would impact others’ lives. Back then, I felt a lot of anxiety and pain, and I had a lot of questions, but it was difficult to imagine any positive impact.

Now that I’m on the other side, I can honestly say I’m so grateful for my journey. You never know how your trial today may impact someone else’s life tomorrow.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by your diagnosis, I believe with all my heart that you can get better, like these readers did.

The Busy People’s Roadmap to Healing: Hashimoto’s Protocol

There are many different root causes of Hashimoto’s, but I’ve found there are steps one can take that can help 80 percent of people feel significantly better.

My second book, Hashimoto’s Protocol, was born after years of research and working with thousands of people with Hashimoto’s.

This book takes a targeted approach and outlines specific steps that teach you how to start feeling better in as little as two weeks. This protocol has helped many people to eliminate symptoms and recover their health, in just 90 days!

Hashimoto’s Protocol has over 2,800 five-star reviews, and I’d like to celebrate these successes by sharing a few with you!

“I’m four weeks into the protocols following Dr. Wentz’s advice. I felt less tired after two weeks; TSH has improved. On day 21 my brain fog lifted! I’m now a believer. I’m finding this book to be filled with all the ‘right’ information–theory and practical, including recipes! It’s well-organized, clear, readable and not too hard to understand. :-).”

“This book changed my life! I was so frustrated before cause doctors hardly knew anything about hypothyroidism. When I heard there was a diet that help put it in remission (or get close to it) I was excited. I went from a TSH score of 13 to 1.2! I’m more regular now, my skin and hair have improved, I lost 12 lbs, my memory improved, my periods became less painful, I have a better time focusing, and I feel better about myself!! I HIGHLY recommend this book! Do yourself a favor, read it cover to cover and start her diet. You will absolutely notice a change.”

“Your books are amazing and such a life saver. I was diagnosed with Hashimotos 10 years ago. The doctor told me what I had and told me I’ll be on synthroid for the rest of my life. I have suffered on and off for years and all he would check was my tsh. I’d come in complaining of brain fog and major fatigue and he said my tsh under 3 was normal, even though my t3 was also low. I recently started seeing a functional medicine doctor and she is amazing and recommended going gluten free and reading Hashimoto Protocol. She changed me from synthroid to Armour and made a few other changes. My antibodies were 677. I feel a million times better now! I wish I had known 10 years ago what I know now from reading your book. I could have gotten my health back many years ago. I’m in the process of reading Root Cause now. Thank you!! 😃”

Hashimoto’s has this way of intertwining itself into the very fabric of our lives. It uproots us, causes chaos inside of us, and often impacts every aspect of our health and life. I hope you’ll find these protocols easy to implement so that you can get back to living the life you deserve.

Wherever you are in your process, now is the time to start fresh and start reclaiming your life. Here are some other success stories that readers have shared with me:

Discovering How to Use Food as Medicine: Hashimoto’s Food Pharmacology 

If you’re looking to cook great-tasting food which you can also use as medicine, take a peek at my cookbook! In it, I share the best strategies for making dietary changes an easy part of your life.

I also teach you how to support yourself through digestive enzymes and proper nutrients. Once these start working in your body, your whole system becomes transformed into a safe place, and you receive the nutrients you need to heal.

Here are a few of the (800+ five star) reviews:

This one really put a smile on my face!

“I have implemented your cookbook in my everyday life for the past month and a half. And am almost done with your Hashimoto Protocol book.

Although the experience part was challenging, I’m so thankful you wrote this and were such a light in providing such helpful information and reassuring the rest of us.

My TSH levels have dropped from 7.8 to 2.20. And autoantibodies from 657 to 474 in 1 month and a week 🙂 From following your tips and diet/lifestyle change and taking no medication (none was given to me)

My pcp and endocrinologist didn’t believe it was diet/lifestyle change alone 🙄

But I can feel it truly is. So thank you.”

Easy to prepare, follow, and tastes amazing!

“Really love this book. It’s full of vital information and has really helped. Her recipes are easy to prepare, follow and taste amazing. There is a range of recipes and not just simple salads as previous review suggested (salmon and parsnip fish cakes are definitely a favourite). This has educated me To know what I should be eating to feel better. Would definitely recommend to anyone who suffers from thyroid issues.”

The gift of life-changing results… 

“I would highly recommend the recipe books. Made such wonderful changes to my life, health, relationships and family. It totally changed me in every way. So, thank you Isabella.

I had spent a year searching for answers and you provided nearly all of them. Try the recipes and meal plans immediately, do not hesitate. All of it has changed my life for the better and I’m so grateful that I found a qualified and experienced person to help me regain my health.You are a true mentor in as much as that you had Hashimoto and used your knowledge to heal yourself and that you now share the knowledge to heal other people.”

Anyone with autoimmunity can benefit!

“You don’t need to have Hashimoto’s to benefit from this book. Most of the nutritional guidance and recipes are appropriate for anyone who wants to control ANY autoimmunity or just plain optimize health. 

I love that most of the recipes do not take a lot of preparation, and even those of us with fatigue should not find them daunting. As someone with a lot of food sensitivities, I am delighted that this cookbook magically contains more recipes without any offending ingredients than any other cookbook I own. Dr. Wentz puts her heart and soul into everything she does, and this book is no different. Her passion shines through.”
