When it comes to navigating your health, if that journey includes Hashimoto’s, a thyroid condition, hypothyroidism, subclinical hypothyroidism, or many other autoimmune conditions as well, such as celiac disease, information simply isn’t enough. You need to have a step-by-step plan. I am Dr. Izabella Wentz, and even having a degree in pharmacology did not save me from years of misdiagnosis by doctors and misinformation from experts. Finding a path out of Hashimoto’s and thyroid illness became my focus (and success story), and finding a way to share everything I discovered became my mission. I have written TWO New York Times best-selling patient guides, launched three companies (including a training for practitioners), and created a line of supplements to support and empower people with thyroid disease to take back their health, and still I knew something was missing. So, I got really centered and began to systemize the steps and summarize all of the solutions that I knew could change lives into one place – I created a PROGRAM to take you from suffering – to celebrating. Because this life is a gift, and helping you to unwrap it with renewed health is my highest privilege.

The government is waging a vendetta against Armour Thyroid, because it is natural, and instead is promoting incomplete and synthetic thyroid medications. In addition, if the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) goes through with recent proposals, thousands of patients with similar thyroid conditions may lose access to the compounded version of natural thyroid medications they rely upon to treat their hypothyroidism. In a list of the top 100 most prescribed, top selling drugs in 2015, Synthroid was the number one most prescribed drug, bringing in $1,022,330,738 in sales. Natural thyroid, and the compounding pharmacies that produce it, therefore represent an annoyance to the government-sponsored monopolists running Big Pharma.
A study found that women who take thyroid hormone for at least 15 years have 200% increase in the risk of breast cancer as compared to women who did not take thyroid hormone. You read that correctly: a 200% increase risk of breast cancer in women who took thyroid hormone as compared to women who did not take thyroid hormone. How could that be? The answer is simple: The increased breast risk in thyroid supplemented women is due to iodine deficiency.
Hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid, is a very common problem, and there are many reasons for this, including drinking chlorinated and fluoridated water, and eating brominated flour. Chlorine, fluoride, and bromine are all in the same family as iodine, and can displace iodine in your thyroid gland. Dr. Jonathan Wright, a pioneer in natural medicine, recommend that women take about 6 mg of iodine per day, and men about 3 mg per day to protect their thyroid and breast health. Another principal cause of hypothyroidism is related to elevated reverse T3 levels, which can become elevated in response to heavy metal toxicity. In such cases, successful treatment must include detoxification. Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) can be successfully and quickly reversed with a treatment protocol using Lugol’s iodine and lithium.
Patients need access to compounded thyroid extract, not just the synthetic and incomplete version. A new clinical trial has found that hypothyroid patients prefer natural, full-spectrum desiccated thyroid extract (DTE) to T4-only preparations.There is a bill moving through Congress to outlaw certain compounded medications. This bill is a blatant move by pharmaceutical companies to eliminate the competition from compounding pharmacies and force people to buy the mass-marketed version of the drugs. That would mean that in the event of future shortages of DTE, people might be forced to switch to the T4-only preparations that leave so many patients with unresolved symptoms.
I must post about my amazing experience with Virgin Coconut Oil. I am 35 years old and severely hypothyroid. I was on thyroxine at very high does for 5 years before I started looking for an alternative. My doctor said my levels were alright, however I was still extremely lethargic and suffered from “brain fog”. I started out taking 2 tablespoons a day and instantly felt the effects. It was so energizing that I couldn't take it before bed or I wouldn't sleep.

What do pregnancy and an underactive thyroid have to do with each other?
These are two seemingly unrelated conditions. However, postpartum hypothyroidism is more common than most people think and does not always show up in traditional thyroid blood tests that only test for thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH). If you feel […]
