AHR 23: How the Paleo Thyroid Solution Can Stop You From Feeling Fat, Foggy, and Fatigued with Elle Russ
Did you know that more than an estimated 20 million Americans have some form of thyroid disease? And up to 60 percent of those with thyroid disease are unaware of their condition. Crazy, right? Not only that, but women are five to eight times more likely to develop thyroid problems than men. And one in eight women will develop some form of thyroid disorder during her lifetime. This is just another clear example of an evolutionary mismatch disease... And the problem with trying to heal yourself and your thyroid is that most of the information will have you running in circles, including the (mis)information from the one you're supposed to trust the most—your doctor. That's why I'm excited to have Elle Russ—host of the wildly popular Primal Blueprint Podcast and author of The Paleo Thyroid Solution: Stop Feeling Fat, Foggy, and Fatigued at the Hands of Uninformed Doctors—join me on today's episode of Ancestral Health Radio. Elle and I discuss how you, the audience, can reclaim your health through a simple (although not easy!) ancestral approach to optimizing your metabolism. In today’s episode, you’ll learn… The six basic blood panels Elle recommends everyone get tested for, Elle explains how your body uses both T4 and T3 hormones (and how to optimize them both), Why Elle says endocrinologists are the worst people to see for your thyroid, and… Much, much more.
