A science-backed, personalised approach to your thyroid health
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the centre of the neck, situated above the clavicles and below the larynx. Triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4), two hormones that the thyroid produces, control how the body utilises and stores energy (often referred to as the body’s metabolism).
The pituitary, a gland located right below the brain, regulates thyroid activity. Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), produced by the pituitary, causes the thyroid to create T3 and T4.
Hypothyroidism (under active thyroid)is a clinical condition in which the body has low thyroid hormone levels.
Low thyroid hormone levels can be caused by several conditions, including iodine deficiency, surgical thyroid ectomy, excessive thyroid-suppressing drug use, pituitary suppression, or thyroid injury (physical or disease-induced).
Hashimoto’s disease occurs when the body creates antibodies that target and harm the thyroid. Over time, this immunological assault reduces the thyroid’s capacity to generate hormones. Hashimoto’s can have significant effects because these hormones impact all bodily cells.
Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) occurs when the thyroid produces too much thyroid hormone.
Graves’ disease, an autoimmune condition that targets the thyroid gland, is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism.
Four factors of influence
Environment, Lifestyle, Mindset, Nutrition. All four factors, individually and collectively, produce the results of what manifests as health or illness. The environment can either lend a positive contribution or exert significant detriment. Lifestyle translates into quantifiable effects on health. Mindset produces a biological response as determined by your outlook and belief. Nutrition is the process of tuning and synchronising elements to become part of you. These are where the five causes of disease are manifested.

Rhoncus id tincidunt rhoncus, elementum tellus, diam mi velit. Viverra phasellus varius tempor.
Most of my patients are in Australia, but I consult with people around the globe; telemedicine has made it possible to reach patients wherever possible. Specific tests might not be available in every country, but I can adapt to the available tests.
I, unfortunately, don’t; some cases need to be referred when the condition presented is outside my scope. Some people are unwilling to make the required lifestyle changes or are not coachable, and I can not take them on. It’s about more than just supplements and a diet
