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 came to see Dr Gupta around a year ago when I was suffering from debilitating vestibular migraine (vertigo) following two miscarriages, along with fatigue, anxiety and depression, as I just wasn’t getting better. I had had some mainstream investigations and didn’t want to take the strong drugs recommended to me so decided it was worth trying to find the money to get some holistic, evidence- based investigations and treatment. Dr Gupta diagnosed an autoimmune thyroid condition, which NHS tests did not pick up on, and prescribed T4 along with T3, which is not available on the NHS. All the tests gave me lots of information about what was happening in my body and a treatment plan focused on complete re-balancing rather than just trying to cover up a symptom. I have made big adjustments to my diet and lifestyle also and all in all things have improved a huge amount. It is very reassuring to work with a practitioner who is interested in taking a holistic view as well as being medically trained. I would recommend Dr. Gupta’s services to anyone, but especially if your symptoms are not clear cut and if mainstream treatment or alternative options alone don’t work for you.Anna

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>
