This book by Izabella Wentz was a game-changer for me in dealing with my Hashimotos. As a sufferer of the disease herself, combined with her background in pharmacy and her drive to get answers to her condition and to keep digging at it no matter what, she presents this book with such honesty and openness and above all - with real and practical solutions! My favourite diagram..
is this one which highlights how thyroid and auto-immune diseases can sweep their sufferers up into a vicious vortex of never-ending health conditions from anxiety to adrenal fatigue and back again. Finding the 'root cause' of your unique condition can help you to break this vicious cycle and get your life back on track - and she helps you to do this in a really detailed and compassionate way. Thank you Izabella!
Please excuse my red scribbles - this was a diagram that really resonated with me and made me realise how complex this condition is, and above all that I may not be going crazy after all!!
I've created this separate blog space in special dedication to those who might be seeking thyroid-friendly support and advice. I was diagnosed with Hashimotos in early 2017 after being treated for hypothyroidism since 2014. I also have TMJ dysfunction and pelvic congestion syndrome, so may share stories relating to these conditions in this space aswell. I am not an authority on the subject but have learnt a lot since first diagnosis which has helped me manage my condition and feel like 'my old self' again from time to time. So if I can share anything that will help others I would like to use this space to do so! Please also feel free to share your own experiences with me I would love to hear from you! Please note all posts and comments are directly from my own experience with Hashimotos, I am not a professional medical practitioner and would recommend you consult with your GP or practitioner before trialling any of the methods or suggestions I may refer to within this blog.
