The Thyroid and Immune System Connection: Dr. Steve Alukonis

Did you know that approximately 9 out of 10 hypothyroid conditions are caused by an autoimmune thyroid disorder?  Join Dr. Alukonis as he explains the relationship between the thyroid and autoimmune systems. Hashimoto's thyroiditis or autoimmune thyroid is where your immune system is attacking your thyroid and is currently the #1 cause of low thyroid in the U.S. Learn how simple tests can help you get to the root causes of your symptoms and through life changes and proper nutrition turn them around.

Dr. Steve Alukonis graduated from Life Chiropractic College in 1981 and started his practice in Cocoa Beach that same year. He is a Board Certified Chiropractic Orthopedist and a Fellow of the Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedist.

During his career, Dr. Alukonis continued his studies and furthered his expertise in several areas including clinical nutrition, functional medicine, pediatrics, advanced treatment for spinal disc problems (Non-surgical Spinal Decompression), chronic illness and degenerative conditions, and weight loss. In the last three years he has expanded his practice to also work with children with ADD, ADHD, learning disorders, and autism spectrum.

His Space Coast Advanced Health practice currently focuses on helping those with symptoms of hypothyroidism. Dr. Alukonis draws on his training in functional medicine, neurotransmitters, brain, neuroendocrine and immune function to assist his patients in getting their life back.

Space Coast Advanced Health is located at 299 North Orlando Ave, Cocoa Beach. For more information, visit his booth on Sponsor Row, call 321-783-1960, or visit
