I consulted Dr Gupta for an autoimmune thyroid condition I had been diagnosed with. My treatment plan from the NHS consisted of “just take the pills”. I was still feeling tired, lethargic and had other consequences of my condition that I was living with. When I saw a consultant Endocrinologist within the NHS system and questioned whether there was more I could be doing myself to assist the NHS treatment of my condition I got the same response. On seeing Dr Gupta I realised that, with Dr Gupta’s help and treatment plan there was lots more that I could do to help myself. Dr Gupta took the time to explain and develop a treatment plan across all aspect of my life which included diet, exercise, sleep, mindfulness and conventional medication all delivered with patience and kindness. I now feel like I have recovered my zing – something that was missing for several years and I really feel that with Dr Gupta’s help I have taken control of my condition and my health and wellbeing generally.Martin, KENT
