Guest biography

Dr Jade Teta is a highly experienced personal trainer of over 25 years. He has produced numerous video-based workouts that are used by hundreds of thousands all over the world. Jade has a degree in biochemistry and is a qualified physician. Despite his speciality in natural medicine, he has been called everything from a “quack” to a “witch doctor.” Regardless, the choice to go into the field of alternative medicine is described by Jade as being a ‘conscious and deliberate one’.

Dr Teta specialises is in a subset of medicine called naturopathic medicine. If you compare him to your family doctor, but instead of using drugs and surgery first (many know little about diet and exercise), Dr Teta chooses to use drugs as a second choice over other natural remedies and behaviours. He is also an expert in nutrition, exercise and supplementation. Jade describes his speciality as ‘integrative endocrinology.’ This is the study of hormones & metabolism. The integrative part just means that he combines and balances both conventional and alternative methods. Most of Jade’s career has been focused on helping the most difficult metabolic cases to successfully achieve effective weight loss.
