#103 - Elle Russ On The Paleo Diet, Thyroid Troubles & Healthy Living

Elle Russ is a writer, Certified Primal Health Coach, and host of the Primal Blueprint Podcast in Malibu, California.

We start with having Elle tell us about herself - what she does. We then get into her health and wellness journey and how that has led to her writing her own book. After that, we get right into talking about the thyroid gland, such as symptoms of issues and its importance.

Next, Elle gets around to talking about the paleo diet, and how that helps to keep your thyroid healthy. She shares a story of how she was struck with hypothyroidism, and then we start to talk more about the entire topic of healthy living.

Who ever knew that a little gland could be so important? It’s great that we had Elle to share about the topic. Plenty to take away from this. Enjoy!
