104: Ellenie Georgiou on Breast Implant Illness, Reversing Hashimoto’s, and a Ketogenic Diet for Healing

April 15, 2018

This week’s podcast is sponsored by Somnifix! Somnifix is a mouth strip that optimizes breathing patterns and reduces snores by directing airflow through the nose. Somnifix ensures that you breathe through your nose during the night, which allows you to sleep much more soundly all night long and can eliminate needing to wake up, snoring, drooling, restless nights, and more. This has TRANSFORMED the way I sleep! The strip is hypoallergenic and contains a small vent to allow some air to pass through! You can get Somnifix on Amazon, and use the code “CRWSLEEP” at checkout for 15% off!

This week I’m chatting with Ellenie Georgiou from The Low Carb High Fat Lifestyle (@the_lchf_lifestyle)! In this episode, Elle shares her inspiring journey of trying to find answers for her declining health over the years. Elle talks about the start of her health journey, why she initially chose to get breast implants years ago, and how she started to have mysterious symptoms. She shares her experience in the medical system with doctors disregarding her frustrations, how she learned to fight for her own health and stand up to doctors, and how she had to do much of her own research to eventually be able to heal herself. Elle also shares how she discovered she had Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease, and her eventual discovery that Breast Implant Illness was at the root of her chronic health issues. Elle talks about how a ketogenic diet and burning fat for fuel reduced her inflammation so that she could start healing, and what the process has been like since getting her breast implants removed. She shares exactly how she has been able to put her Hashimoto’s into remission, and the importance of addressing all lifestyle factors when it comes to health. We also discuss the importance of nutrient density, adjusting your diet for your body, and more.

Ready to enhance your fitness levels and finally look and feel your best?! There are a lot of fitness guides on the market, but most of them are not programmed well, require extensive amounts of cardio, and don’t actually produce long-lasting results. If you want a fitness program that lays EVERYTHING out for you and will help you finally achieve your goals, check out the MAPS programs from Mind Pump Media at mindpumpmedia.com/christinaricewellness. I recommend MAPS Anabolic to anyone who goes to the gym and wants something that will increase their strength and fitness levels while also reducing body fat, and I recommend MAPS Anywhere if you’re looking for a program that doesn’t require a gym and focuses more on bodyweight exercises.
