Comprehensive food allergy tests, stool tests and heavy metal tests help identify the irritants which cause widespread inflammation and chronic disease. Treatment involves the use of herbs, elimination diets and occasionally prescription medication as a means to remove the toxic burden on the body.
Vitamins and minerals

Evolving research states that changes in the gut microbiota has profound effects on our nervous system, mental health and behaviors.

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
