Top reviews of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis PDF
December 30, 2016
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
– Saccharomyces Boulardii
– Methyl B12 (my Dr suspects a MTHFR gene mutation; regular B12 wasn’t helping but this works great)
– Zinc (this was huge for me; gave me lots more energy)
– 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.

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.
