Event description
This webinar is to bring awareness about the Thyroid Gland, its function and things you can do to support it.

About this Event

The thyroid gland is a small, butterfly-shaped gland located in the base of the neck just below the Adam's apple. Although relatively small, the thyroid gland plays a huge role in our body, influencing the function of many of the body’s most important organs, including the heart, brain, liver, kidneys and skin. Ensuring that the thyroid gland is healthy and functioning properly is vitally important to the body's overall well-being.

Patients with thyroid disorders (knowingly or unknowingly) are Up To Here with frustrating symptoms, such as gaining weight, feeling sad, or not getting enough sleep.

Dr Neville Wilson and Barbara Barrett will cover the most important things to know about the thyroid and what things will help support it.



Dr Wilson runs a busy integrative medical practice, at The Harbour Medical Clinic in Kilcock, Co.Kildare. A former South African Airforce pilot with experience working as a medic in diverse ethnic and remote communities in Africa, Australia and Canada. He has extensive experience in general surgery and trauma and is a holder of several Diplomas in a variety of fields.

Dr Wilson is a Diplomate of the College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of South Africa, is Certified in Acupuncture, Advanced Trauma Life Support and Advanced Cardiac Life Support and holds a Diploma as a Natural Health Consultant. He has a Master of Science degree in Nutrition and Exercise. One of his many interests is Preventative Cardiology and the role of Nutrition in clinical medicine (Nutrigenomics).

Neville believes that the prevailing medical paradigm is severely limited by its singular focus on disease, rather than on opportunities, and the potential, for creating health and promoting wellness.

Dr Wilson works with a significant number of patients suffering with their thyroid health and is one of the few GPs in Ireland regularly working with natural desiccated thyroid and nutritional protocols to help patients back to health.
