Meet The Gut Specialist
Holistic solution for all gut health issues.
Integrative Gastroenterologist and Functional Medicine practitioner
I’m Dr. Gaurang Ramesh, founder of Arka Integrative Healthcare. During my Surgical Gastroenterology training, our conventional Healthcare system’s limitations in chronic disease care motivated me to explore the world of Functional and Integrative medicine.
Every person with chronic illness has a different underlying cause for their symptoms and no two patients are alike. I help people resolve their chronic gut health issues with functional and integrative medicine by – helping them find the root cause of their illness with advanced functional diagnostic tests – identifying their food sensitivities and intolerances – teaching them sustainable dietary and lifestyle changes. – optimising their microbiome with a personalised gut health plan.
Heal From Inside
conventional VS. functional medicine
An outlook on conventional VS. functional medicine
• Disease Oriented
• Early Detection of Disease
• Doctor Centered
• Specialized (Looks at the body as sum of parts)
• Diagnosis Based on Symptoms
• Everyone is Treated the Same
• Health Oriented
• Preventive Approach
• People Centered
• Holistic Approach (Looks at the whole body system)
• Diagnosis based on identified root causes & health history
• Treatment is based on bio-individuality
Some of the questions I get frequently from patients.
Functional medicine determines HOW and WHY a disease develops and attempts to restore health by addressing the ROOT CAUSES for each individual.
I start by viewing your medical history and symptoms through a slightly different perspective than your conventional doctor. I organize your health story using the Functional Matrix, and this allows me to identify key areas of dysfunction and imbalance that can be corrected.
Conventional medicine aims to categorize and label your symptoms as a diagnosis, in order to match it to a prescription or rehabilitive treatment. Functional medicine goes upstream to look for causes for your problems and diminish inflammatory influences in your body.
My goal is simple: improve quality of life, diminish prescription burden, and teach you what you need to do to remain as healthy as possible.
Excited to start?! Wonderful! Motivation is essential for success in any functional treatment plan. However, the magic and synergy comes from our ability to partner together. My style of teaching and delivery of medical care may not be a good fit for some people.
