We use the 5R’s Functional medicine programme as our approach to preventing and treating complex chronic disease and optimising health.
Toxins, allergens, parasites, bad bacteria and fungus.
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
A full blood analysis to identify vitamin and mineral deficiencies allows replacement through diet and food supplementation. Cutting-edge genetic tests aid careful titration of doses to optimise health for each unique individual.
Good gut flora
Gut restoration proteins are used to strengthen the gut lining whilst using specific strains of good bacterial probiotics carefully selected as a result of the stool and blood analysis. Evolving research states that changes in the gut microbiota has profound effects on our nervous system, mental health and behaviors.
Interpretation of fatty acid and antioxidant status allows the use of antioxidants, amino acids and omega fatty acids to restore balance. This aims to reverse inflammation and optimise the immune system.
Hormones and mind
Comprehensive ground breaking hormone, adrenal and thyroid testing to reveal the degree of hormonal imbalance. Treatment involves the use of natural extracts and prescription medications to restore overall hormonal balance. Addressing sleep and stress as contributing factors.
When I first met Dr Gupta 12 months ago I was suffering enormously from debilitating chronic pain, brain fog and fatigue. As well as a whole host of more more minor but very bothersome symptoms. I hadn't been able to work for two months, as a self employed entrepreneur something had to change. Having asked my local GP for tests to try and discover what was causing the chronic pain, and been advised that it would be 'too difficult to diagnose' and I should 'just accept this is my life now' I looked to functional medicine for answers and help. I wanted the full picture of my health - from my genetics, to my adrenals, my gut health as well as a comprehensive look at my vitamin and mineral levels. I also wanted to treat whatever came up as naturally as possible. Dr Gupta uncovered a whole host of reasons for my symptoms and gave me practical advice as to what to do to improve my health and therefore my quality of life. 12 months later I am overjoyed to have very nearly reversed an autoimmune disease, have lowered the chronic pain significantly, and be feeling full of energy and clear-minded again, which is essential for running a business and living my life to the full. Dr Gupta's matter of fact approach and thorough inquiry into my health has been incredible. Knowing I have a Doctor who is interested in my wellbeing and will tell me straight what I need to do in order to feel better has transformed my life. I have gone from surviving to thriving - seeking help from Dr Gupta has been one of the best decisions I've made.Kia
