Your immune system is your body’s defense against disease and infection. However, having an autoimmune disease can make your immune system attack the healthy cells in your body by mistake and affect many parts of the body. While no one is sure what causes autoimmune diseases, Dr. Izabella Wentz says we can take back our health through nutrition or food pharmacology. Dr. Wentz is a Thyroid Pharmacist and author of Hashimoto’s Food Pharmacology. Following her bout with Hashimoto’s disease, she has made it her life mission to educate people about Hashimoto’s and other autoimmune conditions and how they can take back their own health without needing to see a functional medicine doctor necessarily.
