To alleviate the symptoms of this debilitating condition -- including chronic cough, acid reflux, IBS, allergies, chronic pain, hair loss, brain fog, and forgetfulness -- patients are often prescribed synthetic hormones that have numerous life-altering side effects. But there is a better way. Diagnosed with Hashimoto's at twenty-seven, pharmacist Dr. Izabella Wentz knows first-hand the effects of the disease, as well as the value -- and limitations -- of medication. The key to improved health, she argues, involves lifestyle interventions. In Hashimoto's Protocol, she outlines a proven treatment that has helped thousands heal and many others feel better, in as fast as ninety days. Drawing on her personal experience as well as her work consulting with thousands of patients, Dr. Wentz offers a practical pathway for healing and reversing the autoimmune damage at the root of the disease.
