About the Author
Elle Russ is a writer, health/life coach, and host of the Primal Blueprint Podcast. She is becoming the leading voice of thyroid health in the burgeoning Evolutionary Health Movement (also referred to as Paleo, Primal, or Ancestral Health). Elle has a B.A in Philosophy from The University of California at Santa Cruz and is a certified Primal Health Coach. She sits on the advisory board of The Primal Health Coach Program created by Mark Sisson, bestselling author ofThe Primal Blueprint. Originally from downtown Chicago, Elle lives and plays in Malibu, CA. You can learn more about her at http://www.elleruss.com
Elle wrote The Paleo Thyroid Solution after consulting with over two dozen endocrinologists, internal medicine specialists, and general practice MDs...but her thyroid condition was only getting worse - and nothing from doctors resembled a solution, or even hope.
Exasperated and desperate, Elle took control of her own health and resolved two severe bouts of hypothyroidism on her own – including an acute Reverse T3 problem. Through a devoted paleo/primal lifestyle, intensive personal experimentation, and a radically modified approach to thyroid hormone replacement therapy…Elle went from fat, foggy, and fatigued – to fit, focused, and full of life!
Top customer reviews
As an overview, the first four chapters explain the functions of the thyroid, lab tests, medications, etc. They are pretty science heavy so I intend to re-read them a few times. The fifth and sixth chapters are all about a paleo/primal approach to thyroid health, the seventh chapter is how to implement those changes in phases and the eighth chapter is full of success stories, including the author's. Actually, most of the book is peppered with her story and it is amazing how brave and confident Elle was in taking her health into her own very capable hands. There is a short conclusion and two appendices. The first appendix is Elle's interview with Dr. Gary E. Foresman, MD (definitely worth reading!) and the second is resources.
Just a side note...There are some typos/editing errors that didn't take away from the content, but seem to be more prevalent in e-books than print versions. If this sort of thing bothers you, just know the content is well worth putting up with a few typos here and there.
I encourage anyone who has thyroid issues (even, or especially, if you're medicated for them) to read this book!
I haven't gone paleo yet, but I am gluten free as advised by my Natropathic doctor. Paleo lifestyle will likely be the next step.
I can't wait to finish the book.
Elle Russ is not only a fantastic writer, she understands everything that I have gone through and has given me a road map on what to do to get my health back on track. In addition to Elle, Dr. Gary Foresman and his staff went well beyond what medical professionals do in talking with me extensively and explaining what tests meant. For years I thought I would just have a doctor for ten minutes and that's it. I am overjoyed with the support from people like Elle Russ and Dr. Gary Foresman who bar none is the kindest and most caring doctor out there. Keep this book as your Paleo/Primal bible of nutrition and go too for all things thyroid! -Ruthie Biafora, Chatsworth, Ca.
