Do you have a thyroid illness like Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis? Do you know someone who does? Well if you answered yes to one or both of these questions then I think you should know about a website that may provide you with the help and resources you need to turn around your health and begin the road to recovery. Izabella Wentz is a popular speaker on thyroid health, a licensed pharmacist and a Hashimoto’s survivor, her website Dr. Izabella Wentz, Pharm D1 has resources that you may find valuable.
If you would like to personally connect with a doctor who will use alternative methods of healing instead of just loading you up with pharmaceutical drugs that may lead to more problems later on or tell you to remove your thyroid then you could use her Contact page to find such a doctor. On this contact page, you could access links to three resources that will assist you in locating a health professional that could provide you with alternative approaches to health and healing. The Institute for Functional Medicine Database2 will help you find a functional doctor who will seek to understand the underlying root cause of your symptoms and treat you more holistically than a regular doctor who relies on giving prescription drugs to mask symptoms but who does not seek to identify the root cause of those symptoms and heal the real underlying problem. Functional doctors treat a range of illnesses, so you could use this database if you want help for other types of health conditions, not just thyroid-related ones. I highly recommend that you bookmark the Institute for Functional Medicine website or write down the web address, since you may want to refer to it multiple times to help yourself and/or others. On the same contact page you could find a link to The Thyroid Pharmacist Database that features clinicians recommended by patients and have shown interest in Dr. Wentz’s work. Also, you will find a link to the list of knowledgeable clinicians3 maintained by the ZRT Lab.
In addition, it would be a good idea to look at the other information that is contained on Dr. Wentz’s website, including articles, to learn more about thyroid illness and how you could help yourself or someone else.
So many people seem to have problems with their thyroid, it is my sincere hope that this information will help you or someone else.
