Qualifying as a doctor 20 years ago, Dr Ashvy Bhardwaj has been a practising GP for over 12 years and has been combining nutritional therapy and functional medicine into her practise for the past 7.
“I have an amazing job that I wouldn’t change for the world. But, it wasn’t always like that. Working as a GP was leaving me feeling increasingly dispirited. I observed that most patients were not getting better with the conventional model that I had been taught at medical school.
In addition to this, I was struggling with my own personal weight issues. Despite visiting various doctors, nutritionists and PTs, all who told me to eat less and move more, their advice wasn’t working and I felt like a failure.
As a natural born empath, not being able to help myself and others in terms of health was one of the lowest points of my life. It was reaching a point where I was preparing to leave the medical profession for good.
Opportunity took me to the Semi-Finals of Masterchef UK 2012, where I got to fully realise my life-long love of cooking and nutrition.
It was also around this time that I discovered functional medicine – a biology–based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. In fact, I learned that chronic health problems have many root causes and have likely been developing over months if not years.
As I started to work with my patients to understand where their health issue was actually coming from rather than just masking the symptoms with a drug, I was having far more success in helping them overcome illness and disease and regain optimal health.
Today, I continue to use a whole-body approach for my patients with all manner of symptoms, getting to the root cause of their health concern and offering lifestyle and diet based solutions that work to bring them back to health.
Combined with my certification as a nutritionist and a personal trainer and my love of cooking and creating amazing recipes, I am able to create bespoke plans for all my patients. I work with you to renovate your health and support you throughout your health transformation.”
