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.
When I first met Dr Gupta 12 months ago I was suffering enormously from debilitating chronic pain, brain fog and fatigue. As well as a whole host of more more minor but very bothersome symptoms. I hadn't been able to work for two months, as a self employed entrepreneur something had to change. Having asked my local GP for tests to try and discover what was causing the chronic pain, and been advised that it would be 'too difficult to diagnose' and I should 'just accept this is my life now' I looked to functional medicine for answers and help. I wanted the full picture of my health - from my genetics, to my adrenals, my gut health as well as a comprehensive look at my vitamin and mineral levels. I also wanted to treat whatever came up as naturally as possible. Dr Gupta uncovered a whole host of reasons for my symptoms and gave me practical advice as to what to do to improve my health and therefore my quality of life. 12 months later I am overjoyed to have very nearly reversed an autoimmune disease, have lowered the chronic pain significantly, and be feeling full of energy and clear-minded again, which is essential for running a business and living my life to the full. Dr Gupta's matter of fact approach and thorough inquiry into my health has been incredible. Knowing I have a Doctor who is interested in my wellbeing and will tell me straight what I need to do in order to feel better has transformed my life. I have gone from surviving to thriving - seeking help from Dr Gupta has been one of the best decisions I've made.Kia

When I hear the headlines of a new ground-breaking therapy that has been trialed and shown to slow down Huntington’s disease…. I am very excited to say the least! This is genetic therapy, modifying our genes and our destiny. Huntington’s is an incurable degenerative dis...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 t...Read more>
