Dr Bhatti runs a complementary clinic specialising in gut health and restoration. He has been practising natural gut health restoration for more than 25 years with excellent results.
Poor gut health can affect you physically as well as mentally and can lead to many illnesses.
Dr Bhatti identifies the most common causes of obesity as poor diet, lack of exercise, bad eating habits, stress and strains of lifestyle, working conditions, medical conditions and, sometimes, just loving food too much.
He suggests three basic approaches to weight management: nutritional education, gut health and microbiome, and nutritional manipulation and supplementation.
Dr Bhatti's gut health and restoration clinic treats every person as a unique individual. No two people have the same problems or complaints, so the clinic designs a nutritional plan to suit each person according to his/her needs.
The first advice Dr Bhatti offers new patients before embarking on a diet is to visit a general practitioner to rule out any medical conditions or medications which may be causing weight gain.
“Too much insulin in your blood, hypoglycemia, anxiety, diabetes, or glandular problems can all cause weight gain,” he said. “Recent studies show that people suffering from candida, leaky gut syndrome, stress, depression, lack of good quality sleep, allergies, and some chronic conditions can also put on weight due to cravings. Weight gain can also be hereditary, as the discovery of the obesity gene has indicated.”
Dr Bhatti's approach to treating gut health related problems is through a combination of nutritional healing, medical acupuncture, and other complementary therapies. For more information on gut health and weight management, visit www.drbhatti.ie
