“Healing with natural substances is as old as humankind itself. Its origins are lost in the midst of time. Today, the use of these promising natural substances is widespread, widely popular, and effective. I am excited to be on the MRVL team, which uses highly sought-after natural substances derived from blue scorpion venom in many of its products.”
Alkmini Anastasiadou, M.D., is a Manhattan based holistic endocrinologist who combines traditional and alternative medicine with nutritional counseling and lifestyle changes. She is highly specialized in treating various types of thyroid disease, such as hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Hashimoto’s disease, Graves’ disease, and thyroid recovery post thyroidectomy. Her other specialties include medical weight loss, type II diabetes, hypoglycemia, estrogen dominance, PCOS, PMS, irregular periods, menstrual cramps, and menopausal hot flashes.
Dr. Anastasiadou earned her medical degree from the Medical Academy of Gdansk, a prestigious European medical school with a history dating back to the Guild of Surgeons established in 1454. Following graduation, she worked for the Greek government in a family practice on the island of Ikaria, Greece.
In 1987, Dr. Anastasiadou moved to the United States. She completed her Internal Medicine training at Nassau County Medical Center and New Rochelle Hospital, followed by her Endocrinology fellowship at Westchester County Medical Center. She then went on to practice at the Fertility Institute at Brooklyn Hospital.
In 1996, Dr. Anastasiadou started her own private practice in Manhattan, New York. Her professional interests lie in comprehensively identifying the cause of a patient’s symptoms and discomfort—including the metabolic, nutritional, emotional, environmental, and energetic sources, all of which can disrupt one’s endocrine system. Her goal is to enable self-healing abilities of her patients.
In addition to Dr. Anastasiadou’s medical expertise, she is an accomplished musician and linguist. She studied 10 years of classical music in the Czech Republic and Greece and speaks four languages: English, Polish, Greek, and Czech.
Dr. Anastasiadou resides in Manhattan. Her children, Danae and Orion, are both studying at the University of Colorado in Boulder.
