Description of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis PDF

Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis PDF: What’s Really Going on in Hashimoto’s? Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis PDF is more than just hypothyroidism. Most patients with Hashimoto’s will present with acid reflux, nutrient deficiencies, anemia, intestinal permeability, food sensitivities, gum disorders and hypoglycemia in addition to the “typical” hypothyroid symptoms such as weight gain, cold intolerance, hair loss, fatigue and constipation. The body becomes stuck in a vicious cycle of immune system overload, adrenal insufficiency, gut dysbiosis, impaired digestion, inflammation, and thyroid hormone release abnormalities. This cycle is self-sustaining and will continue causing more and more symptoms until an external factor intervenes and breaks the cycle apart. The lifestyle interventions discussed in this book aim to dismantle the vicious cycle piece by piece. We start with the simplest modifications, by removing triggers, and follow with repairing the other broken systems to restore equilibrium, allowing the body to rebuild itself.

If you’ve been diagnosed with the autoimmune condition Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, you know how difficult it can be to improve symptoms. However, scientists are discovering ways to address this disease without resorting to prescription drugs and synthetic treatments: through the Paleo diet. By using functional medicine and healing foods, you may finally find relief!

In The Everything Guide to Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, you’ll discover the causes and symptoms, as well as the link between gut health and thyroid health. You’ll learn exactly which foods can help improve your condition and which ones exacerbate problems. This all-in-one health guide features meal plans, 200 nutritious recipes, and easy tips for transitioning to the Paleo lifestyle–so you can improve your well-being and heal your body naturally.

This book has literally saved me MONTHS of research on my own. Dr. Wentz has created a wonderful resource not only for those suffering from Thyroidism, but frankly from ANY auto-immune disease. She has clear to follow explanations of how the thyroid functions, followed by chapter after chapter on how to heal. The best part of the book is her supplement guide, which includes not only what to take, but how it works, what is does, and what dosages are best.

I don’t know if my personal story will be helpful, but let me start by explaining what I learned on my own versus what I learned from this book.

I was diagnosed with Hashimotos, but normal thyroid hormone levels, despite having *all* of the symptoms of hypothyroidism. I saw three endocrinologists, three GPs, two neurologists, numerous chiropractors and massage therapists, two acupuncturists, and even a life coach and hypnotist (pretty much any health related professional whose bio suggested they might be able to help). I tried *everything*, and I mean everything, to get back on track but it just wasn’t working until I found this book.

This book introduced me to two concepts that were critical: Functional medicine, and Hashimoto’s Gluten sensitivity

This led to several significant changes. I *fully* committed to being gluten free. No bread, no soy sauce, no tempura sushi, not even cookie dough ice cream. I scoured labels, googled everything I ate, and was generally an intolerable friend to go eat out with 😉 But it worked. That was the first huge leap forward.

The second came when I started looking for functional medicine doctors in Austin, TX and following the supplementation suggestions put forward in this book. I found Dr. Ben Anderson in Austin, TX who has been a life saver for me, and even for one of my friends now dealing with similar issues. I’d already been taking a mix of supplements, but he helped me find even better supplements that were attuned to my body. And he did hormone testing, which showed major adrenal fatigue.

So, with a few tweaks, here’s the final list of supplements I’m on (but I’m not a doctor so consult yours first!)

Empty Stomach (AM):
– Licorice drops
– Probiotic
– Saccharomyces Boulardii

Lunch:
– Glutamine
– Methyl B12 (my Dr suspects a MTHFR gene mutation; regular B12 wasn’t helping but this works great)
– NAC
– Zinc (this was huge for me; gave me lots more energy)
– Selenium

Bedtime:
– Magnesium
– CoQ10
– Probiotic
– Fish Oil w/vitamin D

Many of these don’t have to be taken with food and the order could be switched up. This was just what worked for me based on balancing the load of how many things I was taking each time of day. I’d recommend chatting with your doctor about lab work for vitamin deficiencies and reading Dr. Wentz’s supplement guide.

Also, keep hunting for a functional medicine doctor in your area who charges reasonable prices. The first one I found got great reviews but their “autoimmune cure” package was $4k. Crazy! Several others weren’t much better at $750 for a one hour consult. I found my doctor through a case study in the book “Why isn’t my Brain Working.” That book had lots of case studies with doctors from across the country, so you might start there if you are looking for a local functional medicine specialist.
Good luck everyone!

I bought this book because it had great reviews and is described as being research based. While the author covers many topics and discusses medical studies, none of those studies are referenced/cited in the text. She may talk about a study done in Korea or Pakistan or India or somewhere else, but she never cites the authors name or the reference number. References are listed for each chapter, but the connections to those references in text are missing. This makes it very difficult for a reader to surmise which statements are based on evidence from medical literature and which ones are simply the author’s opinion.

In chapter 8, the author discusses inflammation, with an emphasis on different types of fats/oils. I pretty much wanted to throw the book out when I read the following: “A study conducted at the University of Western Ontario showed that people who ate saturated fats in their diets have a lower risk of cancer than those with the least amount of saturated fats in the diet. (Bring on the lard!)”
This statement shows an obvious preference on part of the author for animal fats. I feel it is irresponsible for her to make these statements about saturated fat, however, without addressing the literature that correlates saturated fat consumption with higher cholesterol levels and heart disease (which people with Hashimoto’s may be more at risk for).

I’m going to try to finish the book and keep an open mind, but it’s hard to overlook the points mentioned above.

When I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism 2 years ago, after having horrible symptoms for 2 years prior to that, I thought there was no hope for a healthy life again. I started researching and soon found out that most doctors do not do extensive lab testing and that most hypo patients have Hashi’s, and that a positive antibodies test would confirm it. Less than 5 months ago I was tested for one of two antibodies (Dr. refused to test both) and that test came back high positive which meant Hashi’s. I was even more devastated! Within a week I ordered this book, not expecting much but at least hoping to get on the right track with diet. I went gluten, dairy, and soy free immediately and soon lost 20lbs without trying after having tried for the past 4 years to no avail. I eventually went on a more strict version of the Paleo diet and started taking most of the supplements Dr. Wentz recommends. I just got my lab tests back today, I had both antibodies tested and both were negative! If you go from having antibodies to being negative for antibodies, that is considered remission, or disease reversal. You may still have to be on thyroid meds and you will always have Hashimotos, but that means your body is no longer attacking and destroying your thyroid gland and it is possible for the thyroid to return to normal function eventually. That is what I am striving for. This book literally saved my health and my life, and please be aware that you can go into remission from ANY and ALL autoimmune diseases, not just Hashis and the diet is the main thing that can help you do that.

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.

I fell in love with this book! Having being diagnosed with hashimoto’s, I was feeling very frustrated not getting better taking levothyroxine. My GP would tell me it was an autoimmune disease and yet couldn’t tell me what went wrong in my immune system for these things to happen. I heard about root causes a lot so decided I’d try his book. It’s brilliant as Izabella Wentz has hashimoto’s herself it’s easy to relate too as you feel like you can relate a lot more. There are a lot of medical and scientific references, but it’s still easy to understand and realise why certain things link together with thyroid issues such as adrenal fatigue. The explanations given are great as to how your body can react and makes you think about what things have started your condition. There is no quick cure for hashimoto’s as all our bodies are different and we have different genes and what could work for one couldn’t work for someone else. The references given to find supplements etc are great the only thing that annoys me in uk is the docs can’t just test to find what else is wrong the give you drugs to mask symptoms and they don’t work, and we get worse. Most the time as patients we have to pay extra for testing to try and get to our root cause which is wrong. I think all GP’S and Endocrinologists should read this book to help us patients get our bodies back in to remission and start to feel well again. I am on the road to recovery but have a long way to go, I certainly won’t be taking levothyroxine again

After two decades of stomach issues, IBS, candida and an increasingly problematic autoimmune condition (thyroiditis and raynards), this book brings all possible causes and solutions together. I have read numerous books on the gut, intestinal permeability (always a factor in those with autoimmune conditions), candida and IBS, but this book (although focused on the thyroid in the first few chapters) is actually about autoimmunity. It is the best and most comprehensive book I’ve read that brings the numerous issues (in what is a multi-factorial health problem) all together to explain the ‘root cause’ of autoimmunity. It also offers treatment options – though never dictates one single approach as the causes can be many…though stress is often the trigger for autoimmune conditions. It’s up to the reader to decide on a path that suits them. This is now my ‘bible’ in my ongoing quest to rid myself of autoimmune thyroiditis, candida and IBS. The author (a pharmacist) suffered from similar gut/autoimmune issues to me and she has done an impressive amount of research to heal herself from what is becoming an increasingly common affliction.

I was a bit confused about her research as often contradictory to itself.
Also I didn’t think there was much that her previous book didn’t already cover.
I did find her Hashimoto Autoimmune a better book.
