The Story behind the Oxytocin Case Report (Now published in JPEM!)

Just over two years has passed since the incredible day it ‘clicked’ that not only was Oxytocin missing from Hana’s medication regime (and, at the time – in my opinion -in the regime of every single Panhypopit patient in the WORLD) but that she NEEDED it and MUST have it. To my surprise, my initial…

Science is moving forwards and it’s you guys that are moving it! I’m hearing there are some Oxytocin changes on the grapevine and some of it is thanks to YOU for reading and sharing my posts on Oxytocin and Hana’s trial and for persisting and believing that treatment for Pituitary patients could be better! Of course…

If this is the first post you’re reading about my thoughts on Oxytocin and if you want to know why my daughter is the only little…

Thyroid Medication: Why I chose The “Natural” over “The Pharma” for my Little Girl

I changed Hana’s thyroid meds a few weeks ago. Way back in December, before her tumour was diagnosed, I’d been sure she had an under active thyroid and I decided over Christmas that I would ensure she received natural thyroid replacement rather than synthetic. There is HEAPS about this online, especially in the very informative…

Could Oxytocin Therapy reduce Obsessive Behaviour in Brain Tumour Survivors?

A few days after the first part of our Oxytocin trial ended (read this to find out what happened!), I noticed something: Oxytocin reduced some of Hana’s obsessional behaviours, but it was only once these behaviours returned that I attributed this to the Oxytocin: Pens: Counting and Colour Coding Shortly after my daughter had her…

My Daughter is the first child to take Oxytocin Hormone for Extreme Hunger, Obesity and Emotional Wellbeing: This is what happened…

As far as I know, at the time of publishing this post, Hana is the first and only child worldwide who is trying Oxytocin Hormone Replacement Therapy for the purposes of appetite control and for the promotion of emotional wellbeing.
