The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It relies on a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes. This is through the use of dietary modifications, individualized exercise/relaxation plans, evidence based nutraceuticals and therapies. Dr Praveen will guide you through each step of the program to assist you in achieving your goals and optimising your physical/emotional well-being.
Dr Praveen’s treatment plan is a holistic approach that focuses on overall wellbeing. She strives to treat the root cause, rather than superficial issues, that assists in long term improvement in health. Her guidance has made tremendous changes and makes me more aware of myself. Apart from improvements in my health, I now feel much happier and calmer than before.
I was struggling with ADHD when I saw Dr Praveen which was having an effect in all areas of my life. Her calm approach, through assessment has given me a lot of insight and strategies to deal with my symptoms.
Until 2016, I was suffering with severe joint pains and fatigue for over 2 years. This took a mental toll on me with low mood and loss of self confidence. Dr Kavita devised a treatment plan which has worked wonders for me. I feel much younger, energetic, rid of joint pains, boost in self-confidence, slimmer, mentally and physically fit. Thank you for your guidance and assistance.
