Thyroid Support

Through my own personal journey and challenges with regard to Thyroid issues (Thyroidectomy 2001), I became aware of a general lack of information around alternative methods of dealing with Thyroid disease.

Therefore, the intention of this page is to provide information and resources for those people who have a Thyroid disorder and who wish to adopt a holistic approach, one that encompasses the whole endocrine system, in the management of their condition.

I believe my personal journey and experience with Hypothyroidism, affords me valuable insight into many of the issues Thyroid patients find themselves facing.
