As Priya is practicing FM, she is trained to diagnose and treat the cause of the illness. Why is that important? Patient primary-care often means dealing with a large number of patients, in a time-constrained environment and this makes it more difficult for GP’s to treat chronic conditions which often require deeper investigation and tests that are not fully available.
Priya is able to provide personalised healthcare and the most common conditions treated are:
* Hormonal: Menopause, polycystic ovaries, thyroid conditions
* Digestive: Irritable bowel, food reactions, reflux, diverticulosis, SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth)
* Autoimmune: Rheumatoid arthritis, coeliac, vitiligo
* Musculoskeletal: Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue
* Cardiometabolic: Diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol
* Neurological: Depression, anxiety, memory problems, migraines.
Advances in genomic medicine have now made it easy to test for certain genetic mutations which play an important role in finding out what you may be at risk of, and how best to tailor your treatment. Priya is trained in providing genetic test profiles (See more detail under FM section).
In a time where it is expected that more than half of the population will have a chronic condition, Priya feels it is more importnat than ever to look at why, and how we can prevent and treat chronic conditions. For this reason, Priya’s training in FM continues to expand and thus far includes Applied Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice (AFMCP), Advance Practice Modules in Gastroenterology, Hormones, Environmental Health and the DNALife Certification course. Priya holds full registration with the General Medical Council and is a member of the Royal College of General Practitioners, as well as The Institute of Functional Medicine.
