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!
