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 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
