Dr. John D. Thorsell I. MD

I am a Medical doctor with a fair amount of experience in Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports related injuries.
I have always had a passion about Nutrition and I have adopted the Paleo lifestyle for myself and my family.


I specialize in Weight Loss and Wellness applying LCHF, Paleo and Primal nutritional advise.
I also work with athletes or the average person that wishes to lean out and change their life by eating the types of foods we are genetically meant to be eating.
I am an Independent Distributor of Protandim, the only supplement in the market that decreases the amounts of free radicals in the cell and thus reducing Oxidative Stress in the body by 40%, by increasing your body's own production of SOD (superoxide dismutase), Catalase and Glutathione Peroxidase.


I obtained my Medical Degree in Caracas, Venezuela in the year 2000. I worked for 6 years in Venezuela mainly in the specialties of General Surgery and Emergency Medicine. My experience as a doctor has taken me from completing 3 months of my intern year in the Amazon jungle, a doctor in the Army, working as a rural GP and working in Tertiary referral Hospitals in General Surgery, Emergency Department and even on a Semi-submersible oil rig offshore Trinidad & Tobago and Venezuela.
I moved to Australia in late 2005 and gained General Registration with the Medical Board through the AMC certification. I have worked in Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery since then, both in rural Hospitals and Tertiary Trauma Centres and Private, gaining a great deal of clinical experience in this field.
