Dr. Izabella Wentz returns to Bulletproof Radio today to discuss Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, symptoms of low thyroid function, supplements you should avoid, and an interesting fact about tobacco. Enjoy the show!
Izabella Wentz is a passionate, innovative and solution focused clinical pharmacist. She has had a passion for health care from a very early age. After being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis in 2009, Dr. Wentz was surprised at the lack of knowledge about lifestyle interventions for Hashimoto’s, hypothyroidism, and autoimmune conditions. She decided to take on lifestyle interventions as a personal mission in an effort to help herself and others with Hashimoto’s. After two years of researching Hashimoto’s and Hypothyroidism, she decided to combine emerging knowledge with her quality improvement expertise to run rapid tests of change on herself that led her to discover the root cause of her condition.
