Elle Russ' no-BS approach to self-help (and everything else she does) is a refreshing departure from the norm, and more importantly enables the reader to absorb the concepts through relatable and real-life examples and stories. I think you will enjoy the fu*k out of this book."

The Paleo Thyroid Solution

Over 450 5-star reviews on Amazon! Bestselling book, The Paleo Thyroid Solution - dispels outdated, conventional thyroid wisdom still practiced by uninformed doctors and provides the in-depth guidance necessary to solve hypothyroidism, achieve vibrant health, and optimize thyroid fat-burning hormone metabolism. Over 200 million people worldwide and 20+ million Americans have some form of thyroid disease, but 60% are undiagnosed and unaware of their condition.

Elle wrote the bestselling book, 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!

As you might be able to discern from the title, this is not yet another self-help book filled with platitudes, ACRONYM's and tidy to-do lists. This is a raw, unfiltered swing for the fences on the touchy topics of self-esteem, self-confidence, and shattering barriers that are in the way of authentically cultivating these esteemed personal attributes. I love how Elle shares her personal story with deep conviction and vulnerability to engage you, but always keeps her eye on you--the reader--to give you something valuable and actionable to implement in your own life. We have enough people on social media shining the spotlight on themselves and telling feel-good stories that provide a brief burst of entertainment and inspiration at best, and are pandering at worst. This book is different, deeper, and more powerful."
