Episode Description for “Hashimotos Protocol“
Hashimotos Thyroiditis affects 80% of those affected with thyroid disease. Unfortunately, it is underdiagnosed, and under treated. Izabella Wentz has easy to follow directions to help those affected to find the root cause of their autoimmune disease, and how to recover.
Dr. Risk’s Thoughts
Often overlooked, but extremely common Hashimotos continues to cause fatigue and other symptoms. For some reason doctors are very resistant to testing for it, however, as discussed, your anti-bodies (showing Hashimotos) can be high for ten years before conventional testing shows up for thyroid disease. I see this as a huge epidemic and don’t think I can talk about this enough. This is my second show discussing Hashimotos, and to bring awareness to this autoimmune disease I won’t hesitate to discuss it again. If you suffer from fatigue or thyroid problems please listen to this show!
