“giving back your precious life”

ABOUT ME ‘Treating patients, not symptoms”

I have always been passionate about herbs and healing since a very young age and brought up in a family that follows the traditional Ayurveda system of healing. I pursued my love of science and healing by studying Pharmacy at Leicester University.

I have been practicing pharmacy for over two decades and felt that the conventional model of restoring health back to patient just wasn’t working, and in fact the patient seems to get worse on long term medications.

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE Functional Medicine is a tailor-made to help these patients. The Functional Medicine approach recognizes that the same symptom may have myriad of causes, so it makes no sense to give all patients who have symptoms the same treatment. Such approach often merely suppresses symptoms, yet does nothing to correct the underlying problem. Functional Medicine practitioners treat patients, not symptoms. We examine all the possible causes of chronic dysfunction and ferret out a solution that addresses the cause for that patient. Best of all, this approach allows us to help far more of those “hard to treat” patients. So when we see a patient that has for example a chief complaint that is fatigue, we feel sense of hope and confidence that we can reverse the progression of disease.

Antecedents Triggers & Mediators

Understanding Antecedents, Triggers and Mediators that underlie illness or dysfunction in each patient permits therapy to be targeted and personalized to the needs of the individual.

Antecedents: are factors genetic or acquired that predispose to an illness or pattern. Understanding the antecedents of an illness helps the physician understand the unique characteristics of each patient as they relate to his or her current health.

We utilize Genomic Testing where we evaluate ‘single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP’s) in genes e.g. looking at the MTHFR genotypes in methylation – biochemical pathway so critical to life.

Triggers: are factors that provoke the symptoms and signs of illness e.g. physical or psychic trauma, microbes, drugs, allergens, foods such as gluten and dairy, environmental toxins and stressful life events.

Identification and elimination of triggers (trauma, infections, toxins, and food) is very important in functional Medicine and Homoeopathic treatment.

Mediators and formation of illness - are factors biochemical or psychological that contribute to pathological changes and dysfunctional responses e.g. cytokines, electromagnetic fields, fear of pain, free radicals, hormones e.g. insulin, cortisol, histamine.
