Dr. Narinthorn Surasinthon, MD, also known as Dr. Mee, has recently joined Thanyapura, the well-known centre for holistic health and wellness located in the north of Phuket. Phuketindex welcomes Dr. Narinthorn to the island and takes the opportunity to talk to him about his past experiences as well as his present role as Medical Director at Thanyapura.
“I moved here only a few weeks ago. Before that I worked as an Assistant Hospital Director at the Samitivej private hospital in Bangkok.
Dr. Narinthorn started working for the Emergency Department at the hospital. He then later moved to holistic wellness.
“I worked at the hospital for almost 13 years, it was time to make a change and I made the decision to be with Thanyapura Phuket.” As a Medical Director, his scope involves all health aspects.
“Thanyapura provides services in many areas of health for our clients. We have our own anti-aging clinic that deals with blood testing, check-ups, hormone therapy and gene tests. Here we can provide customized vitamins to each patient specifically because we can do blood tests to monitor the level of antioxidants, the stress as well as the nutrients in the body. Then we can work out which vitamins match the patient.
As well as the anti-aging clinic, Thanyapura also provides facilities for alternative medicine.
“We have chiropractic, traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture or cupping, a spa therapist, yoga and also a physiotherapist,” explains Dr. Narinthorn before he goes on to mention the sports complex which Thanyapura is well known for. He also talks about the restaurant.
“The restaurant at Thanyapura focuses on plant-based foods. In every dish, we calculate the calories, ingredients, level of fat, carbohydrates and sugar in the food. You will see that we take care of people’s health from inside out!
“Our vision is to help people have a healthy lifestyle. Thanyapura is a destination for lifestyle modifi cation so that you can be a happier and healthier person,” The doctor emphasizes the core of Thanyapura’s values and the reason for him being there.
“Another area that differentiates Thanyapura from other clinics, spas or wellness centres is that we focus on ‘mind training’.”
Dr.Narinthorn shares his ideas about lifestyle modifications.
“It’s because we believe that to change people’s lifestyles to healthy habits is to start with the mindset. If they have a good mindset about themselves, they will take good care of their health and that is the key to a healthy lifestyle.
