On today’s episode of the podcast, I’m sharing a conversation I had with Josh Trent about his personal experience being erroneously diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Unfortunately, Josh’s story is very similar to the stories we hear in the clinic every week. Hypothyroidism is a real condition, but it’s frequently misdiagnosed in functional medicine because of a theory about what TSH and T4 lab ranges should be-- even though research and clinical experience continue to disprove this. If you’re wondering about your own hypothyroid diagnosis, lab results, thyroid medication, or how to really get to the bottom of your symptoms and improve your health, I hope you’ll listen to this episode. https://drruscio.com/the-epidemic-of-false-hypothyroidism-diagnoses  My book Healthy Gut, Healthy You is available at https://drruscio.com/getgutbook/  If you're in need of clinical support, please visit https://austinfm.com/  Looking for more?

Randy shares how he used Elemental Heal to finally recover from ongoing SIBO, fatigue, reflux, inflammation, joint pain, and more. He had tried all kinds of things including diets, medications, and supplements, but results were either minimal, temporary, or would improve one set of symptoms while seeming to trigger another. But when he gave his gut a reset with Elemental Heal, he experienced significant improvements in energy, gut symptoms, and joint pain within days. Hear Randy’s story in his own words, and our whole conversation, in this video. https://drruscio.com/how-to-improve-fatigue-sibo-and-joint-pain-in-3-days  My book Healthy Gut, Healthy You is available at https://drruscio.com/getgutbook/  If you're in need of clinical support, please visit https://austinfm.com/  Looking for more?

On today’s episode of the podcast, we decided to do something a little different and have Dr. Joe from the clinic interview me. We covered some great questions from listeners, patients, and our own clinical team, and really dug deep into the motivation and thinking behind what I do. We also had some fun talking about morning routines, childhood memories, and pet peeves, all while sitting at a coffee shop.
