About Me – For optimal listing appearance, please limit this info to one or two paragraphs.:
I’m one among the first Functional Medicine practitioners in the city of Bangalore, India. Being a third-generation doctor in my family of surgeons I was inspired and intrigued by the scalpel. Having completed my MBBS from JSS Medical College and Hospital, Mysuru in 2005, I went ahead to pursue MS General Surgery at KSHEMA, Mangaluru. During my residency I developed a keen interest in Gastrointestinal surgery and joined fellowship in Surgical Gastroenterology (FSGE) at Bangalore Medical College and Victoria Hospital. I’m also a fellow of Indian Association of Gastrointestinal Endo Surgeons (FIAGES).
I had always been fascinated by integrated medicine and natural healing since childhood, and gradually I realized the miracle of our body to heal when we treat the body as a whole and not only the presenting symptoms / disorder. I was drawn to the science of Functional medicine and became a member of Institute of Functional Medicine and The School of Applied Functional Medicine. I’ve completed 4 modules in Functional Medicine, and i’m in the process of being a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner by IFM and SAFM. As a practitioner of Functional Medicine I aspires to treat chronic lifestyle disorders by individualised patient centric, holistic medicine. By incorporating a multi modal approach of plant-based nutrition, nutrigenomics, comprehensive metabolic and microbiome work-up along with emphasis on simple lifestyle modifications like pranayama, meditation and yoga, I aspire to help patients with long standing illnesses like diabetes mellitus, obesity, auto- immune disorders and food allergies lead a life free of morbidities.
I’m currently part of Terry Wahl’s autoimmune program and i wish to expand my services to Neuro-degenerative disorders as well.
I’m also a Vegan by choice and I’m really excited to be a part of this wonderful group of plant-based doctors and i’m looking forward to learn from seniors and stalwarts in this platform
