|Dr. Johannes W. Dietrich, M.D.
Dr Dietrich is a consultant endocrinologist at Bergmannsheil University Hospitals. He received his MD at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. He is a Fellow in Endocrinology at Ruhr University of Bochum, Germany and a specialist in genetic counselling in endocrinology (GfH) Düsseldorf, NRW, Germany.
He has always been fascinated by homeostasis and other concepts of biomedical cybernetics. He is particularly interested in why and how the logical structures of biological information-processing algorithms relate to their behaviour and that of the embedding organ systems. This motivated him to investigate thyroid homeostasis.
He has initiated multiple clinical trials. Key results of his work include the development of a mathematical theory of thyroid homeostasis, the development of a simulation program of pituitary-thyroid feedback control (SimThyr) that is today used in more than 80 countries for education and research, and of a mathematical method for calculating the thyroid's secretory capacity and total deiodinase activity in vivo (SPINA).
|Professor Dr Rudolf Hoërmann, MD PhD
Rudolf received his MD and PhD from the University of Munich, Germany and is a board certified Internist and Endocrinologist. His training included a fellowship with Harvard University, Boston, USA. During his career Rudolf has worked in various positions at leading universities in Germany. He has also headed the Department of General Medicine, Gastroenterology and Endocrinology at Klinikum Luedenscheid, a major teaching hospital for 10 years. He currently lives at the Sunshine Coast, Australia.
Rudolf's ongoing interest in thyroidology and extensive experience in basic and clinical research is documented by the authorship or co-authorship of more than 100 articles or reviews in peer-reviewed journals, numerous book sections as well as by many international scientific presentations.

|Dr Sarah Myhill
Special interest is in treating fatigue and in preventive medicine.
She believes that many diseases are entirely preventable through good diet and nutrition. Her aim has always been to look for causes of disease and treat by addressing those causes, be they infectious, allergic, nutritional or toxic, or a combination.
|Jacob Teitelbaum, MD
Board certified internist and medical director of the Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Centers of America. Having suffered with and overcome these illnesses in 1975, he spent the next 30 years creating, researching, and teaching about effective therapies for fatigue and pain.
|Kent Holtorf, M.D.
An expert in complex endocrine dysfunction, including thyroid dysfunction (difficult thyroid cases), fatigue syndromes, adrenal insufficiency, growth hormone replacement, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and chronic infections.
|Dr Alyssa Burns-Hill PhD, MSc, FRSH, MIHPE
Dr Alyssa Burns-Hill practices a natural health approach to balancing hormones and provides advanced medical testing that can identify 'hidden' hormone imbalances that explain why you feel the way you feel. Working with Alyssa is about education and partnership in order to create a sustainable health solution that comes from addressing underlying hormone imbalances.
For absolute clarity – I am not a medical doctor.
