Izabella Wentz, PharmD
with Kelly Brogan, MD
Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis sounds… exotic. And something that happens to other people. But it’s not. It affects up to 5% of adultsin Western countries. It’s seven times more common in womenthan in men and often emerges in middle age. Join Kelly for a fascinating interview with Izabella Wentz, PharmD. She is the co-author of the new book Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis: Lifestyle Interventions for Finding and Treating the Root Cause. In addition to hearing about Izabella’s journey and how she went about taking charge of her own health, we also want to know:
- Do lots of people have this disease, unbeknownst to them? Could I have Hashimoto’s?
- How is it diagnosed and what does it feel like?
- Is it also related to acid reflux, food allergies, leaky gut, anemia, and adrenal insufficiency?
- Why is the thyroid gland so vulnerable?
- What’s the difference between hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s?
- Can it be reversed? What lifestyle changes can we make to feel better and get our lives back?
Izabella Wentz, PharmD, FASCP is a passionate pharmacist dedicated to empowering patients with knowledge to improve their health. After being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis in 2009, Dr. Wentz was surprised at the lack of conventional medical 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.

Kaayla T. Daniel, PhD with Sarah, The Healthy Home Economist
Earth Day 2014 has come and gone and once again the focus was on how “veg centric” diets will help save the world and our health.
But is this really true?
Kaayla Daniel says it’s not that simple. Far from contributing to personal and planetary health, the “Meatless Monday” trend and popularity of plant based diets encourage more of a feel good consciousness rather than adoption of genuine, sustainable solutions.
Learn why Kaayla and Sarah are keeping our Mondays meaty:
- Why the true threat to our environment is not animals.
- Why plowing pastures and rangeland to plant crops is not sustainable and won’t do much to feed the hungry and save the environment.
- How America’s topsoil has been devastated by mono cropping and how animals are the key to restoring the health of our soils.
- Why if people give up meat, the alternatives: grains, beans and tofu are not a good option for seekers of truly vibrant health or those concerned with the environment.
