Are Rootcology Supplements Right For You?
Please read this first...
Hello, and thank you for visiting Rootcology!
I’m Dr. Izabella Wentz, and my journey started in 2009 when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.
WHAT IS HASHIMOTO’S THYROIDITIS?
Hashimoto’s is the most common autoimmune condition in the United States and worldwide, affecting anywhere from 13.4 to 38 percent of people within the general population. Most individuals taking thyroid hormones have Hashimoto’s and many may not even be aware that they have it.
With Hashimoto’s, the immune system sees the thyroid gland as a foreign invader and launches an immune response against it. This autoimmune destruction of the thyroid gland eventually causes the thyroid to no longer be able to produce sufficient thyroid hormones, and this results in hypothyroidism.
After two years of researching Hashimoto’s and hypothyroidism, I committed to seriously start writing my first book, Hashimoto's Root Cause, and in the process, I was able to get my Hashimoto’s into remission!
Over the last 7+ years, I have researched, evaluated, purchased, and tried a variety of medications, supplements, and lifestyle changes to determine which would be most helpful in overcoming Hashimoto’s.
After applying my pharmacist’s training, dedicating thousands of hours to research, and becoming my own human guinea pig, I was finally able to produce a protocol for healing, which I describe in my book, Hashimoto's Protocol.
I have also received over a 1,000 stories from people who have had similar successes with getting their Hashimoto’s under control, by following the same strategies I used to get myself well!
I'm sharing all of this with you because I want you to know what’s possible. Wherever you are in your journey, I want you to know that things can get better, as long as you commit to taking charge of your own health and making changes to your life. Whatever your story with Hashimoto’s, you’ve come to the right place, and I’m here to help!
WHY CHOOSE ROOTCOLOGY?
What I've learned is that not all supplements are created equally. As a pharmacist, I can tell you that many supplements are ineffective, and some are even downright unsafe.
The truth is that most supplement companies do not undergo the same scrutiny and testing that pharmaceutical products do, because many of the tests which are required of pharmaceutical companies are ‘voluntary’ for supplement companies. For this reason, most supplement companies do not take the extra steps to test their products to ensure safety and purity.
Evaluating the safety, efficacy, and cost of various treatments was a large part of my training as a pharmacist. I have put my training to good use in overcoming Hashimoto’s, and now, in the development of my own supplement line, Rootcology.
Rootcology is a blend of my two passions and areas of expertise, root causes and pharmacology!
Root... going after the root cause of disease…
...cology (as in pharmacology)... understanding how tiny molecules exert effect on the human body!
Rootcology is dedicated to creating innovative, bioavailable products that are made with the greatest care, and with the highest quality ingredients available. All of the supplement ingredients have been carefully chosen by yours truly, to address the needs and sensitivities of people with autoimmune thyroid disease.
All of Rootcology’s supplements are:
- Gluten free

Furthermore, all Rootcology supplements undergo third-party testing to ensure that the ingredients on the label are safe, effective, and match what’s actually inside the bottle.
DON’T KNOW WHERE TO START?
If you’re feeling hopeless and feel like giving up, please don’t... you’re not alone in this.
You’ve come to the right place- my team and I will do everything we can to help you get better!
If you are feeling overwhelmed and don’t know where to begin, I suggest that you start by getting a copy of my latest book, Hashimoto's Protocol, a step-by-step guide that covers the tests, lifestyle interventions and protocols that I recommend after years of research.
If you like watching online videos or physical DVDs, you might also be interested in getting a copy of my documentary series, The Thyroid Secret. I interviewed over 100 experts and patients so that you can get a basic understanding of which lifestyle interventions can be helpful.
If you want to dig even deeper, I have also created the Hashimoto’s Self Management Program, which can help you to better identify and remove your specific triggers.
You can view all of my products and services here.
After years of research, I've developed a number of protocols which I have included in my latest book, Hashimoto's Protocol.
Here are the basic protocols:
The Liver Support Protocol supports the body’s own detoxification pathways, and makes the body more resilient to environmental toxins. This first step is very important in order to reduce inflammation, oxidative stress, and mitochondrial injury.
The Adrenal Protocol aids in balancing the adrenals and blood sugar levels, and can help you start tackling chronic stress and inflammation.
The Gut Protocol helps in healing intestinal permeability and helps with symptoms like bloating, stomach pain, diarrhea, and constipation. It also focuses on removing reactive foods, balancing your gut flora, and supplementing with enzymes and other beneficial foods for your gut.
The Advanced Protocols will help you to stop the progression of autoimmunity by identifying and removing root causes- and in some cases, it will even reverse autoimmunity. With the guidance of a Functional Medicine Practitioner, you can take a proactive and holistic approach in finding and correcting your root causes and get your life back! You simply have to DIG-AT-IT.
We strive to earn your trust, and we welcome the opportunity to serve you and help you regain your health.
I’m honored to be a part of your healing journey!
