Food Pharmacology: Addressing Thyroid Disease

"Food is one of the most powerful tools in your healing journey.” - Dr. Izabella Wentz

As a young woman, Dr. Wentz was diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease, which affects the thyroid gland and causes the body to attack its own cells.

She is not alone. More than 35 million Americans currently suffer from Hashimoto’s—making it the country’s fastest-growing autoimmune disease. Many individuals with or without a formal diagnosis suffer daily symptoms, including chronic cough, acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, allergies, persistent pain, hair loss, brain fog, and forgetfulness.

Unfortunately, many people do go undiagnosed (or misdiagnosed), compounding the symptoms and leading to the destruction of the thyroid gland.

Dr. Wentz's book, Hashimoto’s Food Pharmacology, combines her revolutionary and proven approach to reversing thyroid symptoms with delicious, easy-to-use recipes that delight the taste buds while they heal the body.

Listen as Dr. Wentz joins Dr. Friedman in this encore episode from April 2019 to discuss the damage Hashimoto's can do to one's body--and how you can use nutrition to mitigate the illness.
