Welcome! I'm Elle.

I am a renowned thyroid expert and the author of the #1 bestselling book The Paleo Thyroid Solution as well as the creator of The Ultimate Thyroid Course.

For over a decade I have helped thousands of people in 20+ countries resolve their thyroid issues. I personally suffered twice in a decade with severe bouts of hypothyroidism, and conquered both on my own without the help of a doctor. My life is symptom-free, and I have been thriving for over a decade now.

I deeply understand that having thyroid issues is overwhelming, depressing, lonely, and scary. I cried my eyes out multiple times a day for many years while struggling with thyroid issues and dealing with uninformed doctors who kept me sick, misdiagnosed me, and never helped me.

I was riddled with over 30 hypothyroid symptoms and felt hopeless. I was left in the dust by over two dozen endocrinologists and hormone specialists in Los Angeles. No one could help me.

These medical professionals are uninformed due to using 40-year-old outdated thyroid protocols no longer practiced by informed, up-to-date physicians, and experts like me.

THERE IS AN END TO THIS, YOU JUST NEED THE RIGHT GUIDANCE FROM AN EXPERT (AND PATIENT) LIKE ME, WHO TEACHES DOCTORS HOW TO DO THIS.

Author of Lies My Doctor Told Me

"Elle Russ, although not a medical doctor, can school just about any doctor on thyroid issues. You would think endocrinologists would have the best understanding of thyroid conditions and medications, but quite often they seem to be the least informed. If you suffer from low thyroid symptoms, or suspect you do, even though your lab results are 'normal' ‚Äď you need Elle's help."

Healing Starts With Getting Comprehensive Thyroid Tests

If you had an endocrinologist or a doctor only test you for TSH and T4 - you are with an uninformed doctor and you might have been mistreated.

If you had an endocrinologist or a doctor who tested you for TSH, T4, and T3, but never tested your Reverse T3 - you are with an uninformed doctor and might have been mistreated.

Go back and check your labs. Have you been tested for the things on my recommended panel? If so but you are still suffering - that means your doctor knows enough to test you properly, but not enough to treat you properly.

Click below to see my recommended thyroid panel. If you need to get tested without a doctor or insurance - you can do that! This link provides a way for you get tested on your own in the USA (depending on what state you live in). 

The most accurate results are when you get tested within 2-3 hours after waking up. Only black coffee, water, or black tea prior to the test. If you take thyroid hormone replacement, you just wait and take it after the test.

My Recommended Thyroid Labs

If any of the below sounds familiar - I get it. This used to be me.

  • Are you¬†discouraged and¬†depressed?¬†Are you starting to wonder¬†if you will ever get better - because you keep seeing doctors and nothing improves?¬†
  • Are you feeling like you don't even have the motivation and wherewithal to solve this, even though you know you need to?¬†
  • Are you exhausted?¬†Do you feel like you have no energy and you can‚Äôt even¬†deal with the¬†basic tasks of life?
  • Are you doing your best with diet and exercise but you cannot lose weight no matter what you try or how hard you try? Maybe you are GAINING weight despite¬†your efforts?¬†
  • Is your¬†hair thinning¬†or falling out?
  • Do you have brain fog and lack of focus? Do you feel¬† like¬†you are getting dumber?...as if something negative is happening to your brain and you don't understand why? Do you struggle to retain information or can't seem to find the words to express yourself?
  • Have doctors tried to help,¬†but failed? Or have they told you,¬†"Your thyroid is fine."?
  • Are you a woman who has experienced miscarriages, infertility, or other gynecological issues like PCOS, heavy bleeding, low sex drive, uterine fibroids, etc?
  • Are you a man who has a low sex drive, low energy, disrupted sleep, poor exercise recovery, and/or plummeting testosterone levels?
  • Are¬†your Hashimoto's antibodies really high and you have no¬†idea how to¬†bring them down and under control?
  • Are you on thyroid hormone replacement but you still have hypothyroid symptoms and your doctor keeps telling you that it¬†isn't your thyroid¬†and that your levels are fine?
  • Do you have a T4 to T3 conversion issue (or a Reverse T3 problem) and your doctor is clueless about how to fix it?

IF YOU HAVE SEEN A BUNCH OF DOCTORS BUT YOU ARE STILL SUFFERING...  

It is likely due to one (or both) of these reasons...
  1. You have an uninformed doctor, endocrinologist, or health practitioner who is clueless about how to fix it.
  2. You are uninformed about your condition, and as a result - you cannot help yourself so you cannot help your doctor help you. This is why you need my help.

EVERY SINGLE THYROID ISSUE IS SOLVABLE AND MANAGEABLE, NO MATTER HOW LONG YOU HAVE ALREADY SUFFERED.
