Reversing Disease and Optimising Health
Getting to the root of the problem is imperative, and masking symptoms without treating the cause only prolongs and worsens the complexity of chronic disease. Evidence based medicine is at the heart of Dr Gupta's practice. She uses thorough testing to understand the individual’s biochemical complexity together with 21st century genetic tests to form a comprehensive individualized treatment plan for patients.
I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease, in 2019. After being told by my endocrinologist and NHS GP that there was no hope of tackling the root cause of the autoimmune response, and I would have to “let the disease run its course”, I started researching options for a more holistic and pro-active approach to my health. That is when I came accross Dr Gupta’s website and I was impressed by her functional and conventional medical backgrounds. Dr Gupta uses rigorous testing to build a complete picture of my state of health. She has a real ability to listen without judgement and to consider suggestions and insights thoughtfully and with respect. The relationship between Dr Gupta and patient is very much a partnership and I have really appreciated her empathetic approach. Within 2 months of starting the initial protocol, which was highly comprehensive and detailed and included dietary changes, suppliments and a small amount of prescription medicine, I was feeling better than I had in years. Not only has my thyroid health improved, but my energy levels are up, my body is stronger, my mind is healthier and I feel ready and able to take on the challenges presented to me by my personal and professional life. I cannot recommend Dr Gupta highly enough. I am looking forward to continuing my journey towards optimal health under Dr Gupta’s trusted guidance.Alex, London

This is genetic therapy, modifying our genes and our destiny. Huntington’s is an incurable degenerative disea...Read more>
Diet puts Diabetes Type 2 into Remission
A large research project has shown that Diabetes Type 2 can be put into remission using diet. How exciting as this hits the conventional world! Medical management of Diabetes type 2 has revolved around pharmaceutical drugs for many years. Whilst reducing sugar and healthy eating has always been out there, it has only ever been used as complementary to the conventional model of medical treatment of diabetes and has never b...Read more>
Fasting Mimicking Diet
Yet another fasting diet fad... but is it?? The fasting mimicking diet (FMD) is a diet that involves severe caloric restriction for five days out of the month. It follows the same principle as fasting by temporarily depriving the body of food to take advantage of health benefits like increased fat burning and reduced inflammation. This forces the body to regenerate new cells and in turn has been shown in mice studies to ...Read more>
