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.
Meeting Dr.Gupta has been life-changing for me. I first consulted Dr. Gupta just over a year a go. I am in my mid-fifties and was undergoing treatment for breast cancer. I suffered debilitating joint and bone aches, lethargy, poor sleep, with an inability to lose weight. Dr. Gupta is kind, sympathetic and encouraging and for the first time in months I felt someone was interested in helping me feel better. After exhaustive cutting-edge testing, Dr. Gupta formulated a personalised plan involving supplements, dietary advice and prescriptions. When I was presented with a folder with all my results and a plan going forward, I felt a weight had been lifted from me. Following her plan, my joint and bone pain started to subside within a couple of weeks - despite my oncologist telling me that was just something I had to put up with during my cancer treatment. I had been in pain for over 4 years. The fact that Dr. Gupta also practises with the NHS is reassuring, I would not feel comfortable consulting with someone who is not a qualified medical doctor, particularly when you already have a serious medical condition. Dr. Gupta's holistic approach based upon detailed scientific test results means that you have the best of both conventional and functional medicine. The breadth of testing means that there is a complete overall picture of your health, which is particularly important when you have several separate health issues.This would not be possible in a system where you have a 10 minute appointment where you can discuss only one issue. The saying 'your health is your wealth' could not be truer. My friends have all commented on my marked improvement in health and finding Dr.Gupta has been one of the best investments I have ever made.ALISON
Gene therapy to cure Huntington’s Disease
I am a firm believer of Genes are not our Destiny, yet I still battle with this concept every day in my NHS role with my conventional colleagues. 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 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>
