FoodFrame… Diet is a 4-Letter Word with Risa Groux

You should eat according to your current health status.

Most of us know that there’s no single diet that’s a perfect match for everyone, and while I often refer to the AIP diet for those who have Graves’ Disease and Hashimoto’s, some people are not well-suited to that diet.

Risa Groux joins me to discuss her FoodFrame™ method and how it helps determine the best diet type for each person to follow. Risa is a Functional Nutritionist and Certified Autoimmune Coach who has always been passionate about nutrition and good health. Using functional nutrition guidelines, Risa looks at root causes and works with issues like diabetes, autoimmune disease, cancer, digestion, thyroid conditions, and hormone imbalances. She firmly believes that the body can heal itself with whole foods we obtain from the earth, and she’s living proof of that.

In this episode, we discuss Risa’s hypothyroidism diagnosis and recovery journey, her method for assessing your specific health status, the six major eating lifestyles, key considerations to keep in mind for each type, why treating SIBO is always a top priority, the benefits of drinking reverse osmosis water, Risa’s comprehensive approach to blood testing, and more.
