There are several got related disorders that are treated through functional medicine.In fact majority of the gut related disorders donot get better through conventional medicines. Below is the list of Gut related disorders that we treat :

- Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth or SIBO
- Candida Overgrowth
- Leaky gut
- Celiac disease
- Ulcerative colitis
- Crohn’s Disease
Several people are suffering from gut realted symptoms but they have never been given a diagnosis or they have been given a “ LABEL” of IBS. But in reality IBS is not a diagnosis in fact when the conventional doctors dont know why you are having symptomns, then they give you the diagnosis of IBS. Symptoms of the Gut Disorder
- Stomach pain or cramps
- Burping a Lot
- anxiety / depression
- Skin diseases
- fatigue/ tiredness
"Acid reflux or heartburn Acid reflux is such a common conditoin that almost everyone suffers from it at some point or not. For some people the symptoms are so bad that they have to take the antaacid medicine for long term basis, for others the condition happens only occasionally. But once people start one acid reflux medicine they are often not able to stop it. But now we know there are so many dreadful long term side effects of these acid reflux medicines like kidney disease, dementia, weak bones, deficiency of b12 and magnesium etc etc. Through functional medicine we are able to find the root cause of your acid reflux and through diet, supplements, and other lifestyle changes we are able to get people off medications. And for others for whom the medicines are not working, they get great results through our model of care."
The definition of IBS is that “ if a person has diarrhea, constipation, bloating, abdominal pain, and they cant find a reason for it, it is called IBS or irritable bowel syndrome. Most often people with IBS have been told there is no medicine for it, and that they just have to suffer through the symptons or even worse they have been offered antidepressant medications to treat IBS. But in reality in Functional medicine we know there are underlying reasons that lead to IBS. often it is because of imbalance of your gut bacteria, or improper digestion, or leaky gut issues or parasites in your gut. We have trillions of bacteria in our gut, which is responsible for proper functioning of our gut, and often because of various reason they get destroyed, and that affects our gut functioning. In functional medicine we have advanced testing methods which can tell us exactly whether you have overgrowth of bad bacteria, or you have leaky gut, or whether your digestion is not proper. And by working with us you can get rid of your IBS.
SIBO ( Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth )
This is a condition where there is overgrowth of bad bacteria in your gut. The most common symptoms are bloating, constipation, diarrhea, abdominal pain. Most of the GI specialist dont know how to properly treat this condition. Dr. Gupts is one of the world leading expert in treating people with SIBO. He has helped thousands of people with advanced SIBO to eliminate SIBO, and get rid of symptoms completly. And this all happens through natural protocols, and not with heavy duty antibiotics which again most conventional doctors use to treat SIBO. SIBO is one of the most complicated conditions that people suffer from, and unfirtunately they suffer through it, as they dont see the right physician for it.
Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative colitis
These both are autoimmune conditions of the gut. Conventional medicine has medications which completely shuts off your immune system to treat these diseases. Even after being on those medications some people do not get better. Once you get started on those medications, there is no protocol to stop them for life long. Dr. Gupta has researched autoimmune diseases in dertail and has helped several people to improve and reverse their Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis throguh Functional medicine model of care. So if you are loking to improve these conditions, then you should strongly consider working with Dr. Gupta. Our protocols are one of the most advanced Functional Medicine protocols, and they not only help eliminate symptoms on a short-term basis but help them to get rid of them permanently. We have the modified 5-R Protocol that Dr. Gupta has used to treat digestive conditions like IBS, SIBO, GERD, Celiac Disease and IBD. It also alleviates symptoms such as acne, anxiety, autoimmune conditions, brain fog, fatigue, joint & muscle pain, chronic headaches & migraines and more.
This 5-R Protocol includes Remove, Restore, Reinoculate, Repair, Relax. Lets discuss these briefly here.
Each one of us is sensitive to different foods, and spending on your body types certain foods might not be good for you. So we start removing processed food or any food item to which you have a food intolerance, sensitivity, or food allergy.
Most people think that the take a multivitamin or they take a digestive enzymes so that will take care of these things for them. But in reality this is much more complex, as we need to know exactly what your gut is lacking, and then give it in appropriate quantity to fix the problem. And most people dont know what they are lacking, and how much they need.
Again taking a simple probiotic through pharmacy is not going to fix your gut microbiome. We need to grow this good bacteria in our gut by using the right foods, by giving them right nutrients, vitamins, minerals, prebiotics. Then we need to provide them with the right strain of probiotic bacteria, and it can be different for different diseases.
This Modified 5R protocl is magical for people and helps them resolve their gut related issues. But as you can see it is complicated protocol and several steps are needed for you to feel better. In this case working with a qualified Functional medicine Physician is important who can make the right protocol for you.
