I am a medical sceptic. Having been let down by so many medical professionals over the years, I looked into the possibility that functional medicine could answer some of the questions that remained unanswered. Dr. Suman Gupta was a breath of fresh air. Suman’s thoughtful, inquiring, curious and professional approach soon got to the root cause of a number of the challenges I was facing. Suman’s open-mindedness and willingness to look at my situation from a number of different angles, meant that I got the best of both worlds i.e. thoughtful functional medical advice, coupled with the benefits of more conventional approaches. This really was a 1 + 1 = 3 I am very grateful to Suman and her team for the results I have achieved and the improvements that I have made to my diet, lifestyle and overall health. Suman operates a very efficient and effective practise and I look forward to working with her for many more years to come, to maintain the positive trajectory and path that she has enabled me to follow.

I have been seeing Dr Gupta now for over two years and cannot recommend her highly enough. Working with a practitioner who is qualified and experienced in mainstream medicine AND who has a deep understanding and is qualified in adjacent functional medicines, such as the role of supplements, offers advice and interventions that are both effective in treating the underlying causes, and sustainable!

After about seven years of slowly declining health with regular increases of thyroid medication, adrenal issues, lethargy, weight gain and what I should probably call depression, it was the growing joint pains that tipped the balance and made me look for a solution. I had always been interested in alternative health and had realised I had inflammation issues but really wanted to have tests done which would show in black and white what was going on. The results of this first round of tests showed that, due to leaky gut syndrome, I was allergic to all my favourite foods even though things like buckwheat and almonds would generally be considered healthy. After 6 months of eliminating the reactive foods as well as cutting out gluten and alcohol completely, my body had changed and I had lots of energy. There are still a number of issues I need to deal with. As the journey goes on, I will have to go deeper and especially make sure to give attention to the underlying mental and emotional issues.
Throughout the whole process Dr. Gupta has been a wonderful doctor. While her experience will point her in the right direction, she investigates thoroughly and explains clearly what needs to be done. As well as being highly qualified and competent, she is a patient and compassionate listener which enables her to consider all aspects of a patient’s life. You come away knowing you have been heard and are valued and that is very motivating. Bianka, Thyroid and Adrenal Disease
Functional Medicine is the way forward and should be practiced by all GPs and hospitals. I went to see Dr Gupta when I started getting allergic reactions to food and very painful rashes on my skin covering my entire body! Dr Gupta carried out very extensive blood and stool tests, which revealed that I had Hashimoto's as well as leaky gut which triggered off very strong anti-histamine reactions in my body. Dr Gupta put me on a special anti-histamine diet, prescribed me mild thyroid medication, treated the leaky gut with anti- and pro-biotics as well as anti-fungal medication. She also build up my immune system with phenomenal natural supplements not available over the counter. I can lead a normal life again which was taken away from me for 8 months. Dr Gupta is the Master at what she does, combining the best in alternative and conventional medicine. I see her spearheading the much needed reforms in the NHS. If you suffer from a chronic disease do not hesitate to get in touch with her now!Susanne Jager
Almost 3 years ago I was diagnosed with degenerative lung disease and I was told by the hospital doctor that I would have to be on strong corticosteroids for the rest of my life which according to them, would have lasted 3 to 5 years, maybe more with a lung transplant. I refused to accept my prognosis and I embarked on an unknown journey, looking for hope and answers. Through books and internet research I learned about meditation and the power of food as medicine. My next step was getting in touch with
Dr Suman Gupta and the wonderful world of Functional Medicine. She helped me put all the jigsaw puzzle together, and I never looked back. She talked to me extensively to understand the root cause of my problem and after a series of specific tests she was able to discover some imbalances in my gut and deficiencies in my whole body. Dr Gupta tailored for me a protocol of food, supplements, and lifestyle, and She has been always there for me when I had any questions or doubts. Thank you for my new future.Vinni, London
I initially came to see Dr Gupta with Hashimoto's thyroiditis and various digestive complaints more than two years ago. By then she had already helped my daughter to find the real cause of her vestibular migraine, when the conventional medicine could only offer beta-blockers and antidepressants to suppress the symptoms. In my case the prescribed medication could not eliminate all of the symptoms and I was struggling with keeping my autoimmunity's markers down. The only recommendation from my GP was to increase the dose of my medication. Having followed the recommendations of Dr Gupta and the course of supplements, I managed to reduce my medication dose from 75 mg to 25 mg and eliminated various nutritional deficiencies. My digestive problems have also improved dramatically and I am gradually getting rid of my gut infections affecting my autoimmunity. Thanks to Dr Gupta and her expertise in functional medicine I finally feel in control of my health.Elvira, Birmingham
