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.
Before coming to Dr Gupta and partaking in her practices, I struggled with swallowing my food as it would take me an hour or two to finish. I also had a gastro-reflux problem which would add to my inability to eat my food. I went to many doctors where they diagnosed me but failed to solve any of my issues, especially the gastro-reflux, with any conventional medicine. Thus, when we heard about the functional doctor’s method’s, we were keen to give this a try. Through eliminating certain food groups and taking daily supplements, I have seen an improved difference in my eating and some gained weight, in just three months. I find it easier to swallow my food which allowed me to finish my meals at a more natural time. The process of treating the whole body and in particular focusing on my gut by resetting the functionality, enabled me to gain great health benefits. Overall I feel much healthier, and wholeheartedly believe that this method works.Jaideep

This is genetic therapy, modifying our genes and our destiny. Huntington’s is an incurable degenerative dis...Read more>

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>
