She gives us great insight into what inspired her alterations to her vegetarian diet and what her day-to-day cooking routine consists of.

In this episode, we welcome Sharon Brown, CEO and founder of Bonafide Provisions, a company specializing in real, organic bone broth. Most of us have probably heard of the benefits of bone broth, especially since it has become so trendy recently.

This experience led her to study nutrition and eventually start Bonafide Provisions. In our conversation, we cover some basics for creating your own broth. We talk about amino acids, collagen, and also the best ways to include broth in a healthy diet. For all this and much more, be sure to tune in!

Today we have the wonderful Elle Russ on the show to tell us all about her new book, The Paleo Thyroid Solution. Elle has worn many hats in her life, with writing, acting, and coaching making up the bulk of her current work. She has also been working with another PMR favorite for quite some time: Mark Sisson. Elle’s book is based partly on her own experiences and troubles with hypothyroidism and the journey of discovery on which she had to embark. It's quite incredible how the thyroid gland, such an important and foundational aspect of our health, is still overlooked by so much of the medical profession. Two of the main reasons Elle struggled for so long with her condition were misdiagnosis and subsequent mistreatment. In our discussion, we cover all this history, as well as the lessons Elle has learned along the way. Elle gives us a great intro to her book and many helpful pieces of advice to treat this common and serious problem. Tune in to hear it all!

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

Key Points From This Episode:

  • A little of what Elle has been up to over the summer. 
  • The audiobook component of her publication that will be coming out soon.
  • Elle’s own experiences and years of struggle with hypothyroidism.
  • Misdiagnosis, mistreatment ,and why testing the thyroid should aways be step one.
  • How to go about testing the thyroid initially.
  • The free test guide that is available on Elle’s website.
  • Lifestyle measures that can help you in dealing with hypothyroidism.
  • The dietary side of managing an over- or under-active thyroid.
  • Thinking about a Keto diet in conjunction with any thyroid issues.
  • Correcting some of the myths around exercise with this condition.
  • Understanding the way in which hypothyroidism might remain an issue.
  • The disproportionate gender allocation of hypothyroidism. 
  • Some common misconceptions about dealing with this condition.
  • Information on the upcoming online course that Elle is offering.
  • And much more!

Now, if you’re thinking keto seems restrictive enough and that “if you take away my meat, I’m literally just eating an avocado with some spinach leaves on top,” you’re not alone, because that’s kind of what I was thinking when I heard about plant-based keto. But then I read Dr. Cole’s book, and I learned a lot. We get into it all in this episode, so be sure to listen!

We are delighted to welcome NFL player Tim Hightower to talk to us about his Paleo journey to recovery from a serious, career-threatening injury. Like many other young players in the NFL, Tim’s diet was not very well thought out, consisting of lots of fast food and whatever else was available. It was only after he sustained an injury that would put him out of action for almost four seasons that he changed his diet with the goal of recovery. In our conversation, he tells us about the perseverance it took to get back on the field after so much time out, and how long it took to find the right doctor to give him the right advice. He then takes us through his current workout and dietary practices and some of the basic lessons he has learned along the way. Tim drives home some important points around recovery, mobility, stamina, and adaptation. For a great talk with an experienced, top-level athlete, be sure to tune in!

On this week’s episode, we welcome Lauren Lobley of Delectable You, author of The Accidental Paleo. Lauren is here to tell us all about her vegetarian and mostly plant-based approach to the Paleo diet and unpack some of the contents of her book and dietary philosophy. In our discussion, we look back on Lauren’s history with food and how she decided on the title The Accidental Paleo.

The book is not so much instructive and normative as an offering of supplementary and complementary ideas for a more rounded Paleo lifestyle. For all this and more, be sure to tune in!
