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!

Joy also works at Proactive Health Labs and is here to help us understand the important role minerals play in our nutrition and general health.

In our discussion, we cover some basics around the role of minerals in the body and go on to identifying and testing for deficiencies and excesses. We talk symptoms, basic rules, absorption, mineral balancing, and much more. 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.

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.

Lauren also tells us about her love for desserts and how she approaches this in the book and in her life. 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!

This week, we’re talking about digestive health with an expert who has had more than her fair share of digestive health challenges. Aglaée Jacob is a registered dietician and nutritionist with more than 12 years’ experience. She is the author of Digestive Health With Real Food, and she has suffered from IBS, CEBO, and PCOS. In addition to that, she overcame nearly two decades of disordered eating, poor body image and binge eating disorder. She has a lot of experience and has done a lot of hard work in her past. She’s now passionate about helping people who are struggling with these health issues—especially helping women heal their relationship with food and their bodies—and that’s where the book came from. In this episode, we touch on an array of fascinating topics linked to digestive health.

On this week’s episode, we welcome Jeff Warren, meditation teacher and co-author of Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics. Being human takes practice, as someone wise once said. We all know that life isn’t easy, and sometimes just existing doesn’t come as naturally to us as we would like it to. But the truth is we could all use a little help when it comes to practicing being human, and meditation is a tool that is becoming more and more useful for people from all walks of life. But let’s say you’re like Jeff was before he got into meditation and think it’s all a bit hippy-woo-woo, or you just simply struggle to do it. Well, Jeff is here to show us that meditation doesn’t have to be someone sitting and staring at a candle for two hours.

Today on the show, I am speaking with newly minted doctor Ryan Lowery—the president and co-founder at the Applied Science and Performance Institute and the coauthor of The Ketogenic Bible. Let’s be honest, what’s up with people eating bacon smothered in grilled cheese and calling it Keto? Is that what Keto is for most people today, and if so, why do we need this diet? You’ve been hearing it and seeing it and probably even smelling it everywhere, right? Keto-keto-keto! In this episode, don't skim the surface of something that’s trending, but rather dig deep into the science of this lifestyle and diet to see whether it’s all it’s cracked up to be. We sink our teeth into controversial Keto questions and topics, including Keto from an ancestral perspective, fat adaption, Carnivore Keto, intermittent fasting and Exogenous Ketones, and so much more. 

We also attempt to tackle the big protein versus carbs conundrum and discover why Keto is anything but a short-term fix for your health. Despite “Bible” being a pretty dogmatic word in the book’s title, Ryan is anything but dogmatic. Ryan acknowledges that different diets work for different people, especially when it comes to being fat adapted, and that even Keto looks different for different people. So, is Keto all bacon smothered in grilled cheese like we see on Instagram? Or is there more to it that that? By the end of this episode, you will have been introduced to a whole new world of Keto, and you'll see that it is so much more than that. If you’ve been on the Keto fence for a while, this episode is packed with knowledge that will expand your horizons. 

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

Key Points From This Episode:

  • Find out how The Ketogenic Bible started out as a passion project in 2002.
  • Should Keto be a life-long lifestyle and nutrition program or only temporary?
  • Find out more about following Keto from an ancestral perspective.
  • The importance of being metabolically flexible and fat adapted.
  • Ryan shares the best ways to become more insulin sensitive.
  • The big Keto question: Is protein more controversial than carbs?
  • What happens when fats don’t keep you full (like everyone says they should)?
  • Ryan shares his thoughts on Carnivore Keto and who it might work for.
  • It’s not all bacon and melted cheese: Why there are many other ways to do Keto.
  • A general day for Ryan in terms of eating and working out.
  • Eating for performance versus eating for performance and longevity.
  • Find out why Ryan wants to see Ketogenic therapies being used in contact sports.
  • Discover why Ryan believes that carbs should be viewed as a tool rather than the devil.
  • Who does chloric restriction and intermittent fasting work for? Ryan’s views.
  • Fasting during the day versus at night and why Ryan recommends the latter.
  • Exogenous Ketones: Why they were invented and the purpose they serve.
  • Ryan’s advice for starting Keto—and for those about to give up!
  • And much more!

On this week’s episode we welcome Dr. Becky Campbell, the author of The 30-Day Thyroid Reset Plan. Dr. Campbell talks to us all about her book and her holistic philosophy towards health and wellness. She explains the importance of the thyroid gland and how deeply it affects our physical and mental health. Until recently, the thyroid has not been given a lot of attention from the medical community, and it still seems to be emerging as something that is accepted as a huge determinant for human health. Dr. Campbell explains some of the reasons for this and also covers how her own health issues led her on a journey of discovery that ended with her a becoming a functional health practitioner. She takes us through the symptoms of unhealthy thyroid activity and explains the differences in how this can manifest. Our guest gives us some insight into Hashimoto’s disease and then offers some basic strategies for preparing and repairing these issues. This interview serves as a great introduction to her book, which we at Paleo Magazine Radio highly recommend!

CLICK HERE for the full transcript.

Key Points From This Episode:

  • Dr. Campbell’s background and early interest in health.
  • How her own health problems led her to discover functional medicine.
  • An introduction to the thyroid and its functions in our bodies.
  • Conventional medical thyroid testing and what it is typically missing.
  • Signs and symptoms that mean you should go for thyroid testing.   
  • Some of the reasons thyroid dysfunction occurs.
  • The strange gender bias of thyroid patients that Dr. Campbell experiences.
  • Differences between hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism.
  • Dr. Campbell explains Hashimoto’s disease and its common triggers.
  • The problem with treating thyroid symptoms instead of the underlying issues.
  • Common lifestyle factors that contribute to the state of our thyroid function.
  • Dr. Campbell’s meal plan and the dietary side of thyroid health.
  • A quick cheat sheet of healthy and unhealthy foods for the thyroid.
  • The timeline of turning your body around to healthy thyroid function.
  • A few last thoughts on holistic health and managing stress.
  • And much more!

On today’s episode we have a quick interview from Paleo f(x) with Ben Greenfield. At the time of this interview, Ben had just sustained a series of serious injuries after he was in a traffic accident while riding his bike, and although this isn’t the point of the conversation, it’s worth noting that Ben was still attending and participating in the Paleo f(x) conference despite the circumstance, so he must be doing something right.

Ben is a health and fitness renaissance man, doing just about everything (and a little more). We chat to him about a few of the things he does in his day-to-day life and about how he manages such a busy schedule. He also comments on diet, the conference, and his bucket list.

On today’s episode we welcome Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, The Paleo Mom! Dr. Ballantyne’s new book is called Paleo Principles, and it’s a comprehensive guide to all things Paleo, from general health and exercise to physiological studies and everything in between. In our conversation, we cover all the important questions pertaining to the Paleo community at present, looking at what science can tell us and how this can affect people differently in practice. Dr. Ballantyne believes strongly in presenting the data and its connotations and allowing the individual to apply this information in a way that suits their needs. We talk about coffee, inflammation, insulin, sleep, stress, and general health, and we get some behind the scenes details about how Dr. Ballantyne went about writing her book. So if you want premium-grade Paleo knowledge from one of the most respected authorities on the scene, you know what to do! Tune and hear it all!

On today’s episode we welcome Roy Krebs of Natural Stacks. Roy is a co-founder of the supplement company and he is here to give us the lowdown on their products and the way that they interact with neurotransmitters in our brains. If you haven’t gotten into the bio-hacking or supplement game, or feel like you may not know as much as you want to, this episode is a perfect introduction to the key concepts. On top of that, Roy also provides us with specific and detailed information about the Natural Stacks products for the more advanced supplement devotee. In our conversation we look back at the start of the company, the different neurotransmitters we possess, diet and exercise, and the most popular products from the Natural Stacks catalog. Roy does a great job of fielding any possible concerns and questions relating to the effects or drawbacks of supplements. One of the things we at Paleo Magazine love most about Natural Stacks is their approach to transparency, especially with regards to their ingredients, and Roy explains the philosophy behind this. So if you are currently using supplements or are just interested in a new way to naturally enhance your brain function, listen in to hear it all!
