I was “only” diagnosed with an underactive thyroid and was prescribed levothyroxine by the doctor to stabilise it. However, my body was still shut down, fatigue, aching bones, no motivation, brain fog and upset bloated stomach. But my tests always came back normal. I felt embarrassed going to the doctor taking up space when nothing was wrong. This grey area is where functional medicine is excellent. I made three appointments with functional doctors: one for my bloated stomach, another for my thyroid and a third for my migraines and foggy brain. When seeing Dr Gupta, she said the body is interconnected and you can’t treat one symptom alone as they all contribute together to the dis-ease. The biochemistry in the body was off balance and needed to be reset together. The process of functional medicine needs patients as the body needs to reverse itself back to health and heal itself. Together with Dr Gupta we were detectives to find the root cause of why I felt ill instead of patching up the symptom. This often requires complete change of diet and supplements but also a change of mindset and patterns. I taught myself back to health and I own that power. Dr Gupta was amazing leading the way to health. I got a new life. I have the perky, curious energy I had as a teenager that I thought I couldn’t never have again. This is real anti-aging from inside out. E.O.
THANK YOU. I’d like to say a really big thank you for the love, care and deep knowledge that you have put into my diagnosis. Everything makes sense. I wish every doctor were like you!Esperanza
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
When I first met Dr Gupta I was in very bad health. I had extreme fatigue, severe eczema and painful, irregular periods. As someone that also suffers from a pre-existing genetic disease, I felt quite demoralised and physically exhausted. Being a doctor who also works within the NHS, Dr Gupta was able to create a treatment plan which combined conventional medicine and her own practices. After running many detailed tests, Dr Gupta was able to form an accurate picture of the problems I faced. Her work with functional medicine is pragmatic and is based on the evidence of the results. Furthermore, she researches the products she prescribes thoroughly, and all are of a high quality. Working with my pre-existing condition Dr Gupta created a detailed and effective treatment plan. Five months later I am greatly improved, and though still on the road to recovery, I shudder to think of what I would have done without her. Dr Gupta is kind, astute and professional, and her effectual approach has ultimately improved my quality of life.Olivia
I have been a patient of Dr Gupta for 6 months now and it is so encouraging to be looked after by someone who has such a proactive and resourceful attitude to pursuing health. She is very approachable and extremely thorough and being a qualified Doctor, everything is evidence based and all backed up by a thorough protocol of extensive testing. I feel I am making good progress with her and the results show this is the case. Alot of people might not know that such a Doctor exists but if you are looking to improve your health, I cannot recommend her highly enough.James Sanderson
I would like to say a big thank you for Dr Gupta's functional medicine appointment and advice. I am feeling so much better. The pains in my muscles and joints have disappeared. I don't feel anxious anymore and I have so much more energy. My hair has stopped falling out. My constipation has gone. My thyroid results have vastly improved. I've just had my cholesterol re-tested and this has reduced with a positive improvement in my LDL/HDL levels.Emma B.
