A good digestive system is necessary for optimal health. Gut issues can negatively impact your quality of life, making every day tasks a challenge. Many people find that their gut symptoms improve when they learn and implement changes to their diet through getting Gastrointestinal Testing. Most importantly, improving digestion and reducing the inflammation can help to turn around the course of gut health. It can help manage your symptoms, reduce the risk of complications from gut issues, prevent recurrence of flare-ups and improve your quality of life.
I did the gut health test and found the information from the test very useful and it gave me great clarity for the root cause of my issues. I found the instructions to do the test very easy to follow.
I did the Gut microbiome test. I didn’t find doing the test straightforward but after finishing I realized they’re easier than I thought. The results were useful references, but I couldn’t understand them much. After getting the explanation from Dr Gupta, I find them useful. The test results combined with the explanation and plan of action are helpful.

Gut microbiome test was extremely helpful and was super easy to do. I think having a test done like this is vital, before that it was all sort of a guessing game due to my various symptoms. I am thankful that the test shows very accurate results so we know what to do to tackle and work on moving forward. I highly recommend the test to others on their wellness journey.

Find the Root Cause of your Gut Issues
Accurate and Comprehensive
Menka was introduced to us by friends who had benefited from her programme. We worked with Menka to address GUT issues that our 9-year old faced. She had frequent tummy aches with headaches and after multiple hospitalisations, doctors diagnosed her as suffering from IBD and gastritis and wanted her to start steroid treatment which all came as a shock to us. Through Menka, she systemically did many other tests that pinpointed her food allergies, bacterial issues in the lower and upper intestines which were the causes of the inflammation. And, then we started on her treatment programme which was all holistic and used herbal remedies as well as the elimination of certain foods. Throughout the journey which had its ups and downs, Menka guided us on lifestyle changes, food intake and habit changes and also where needed, pointed us to other professionals for help. Menka is a gentle, patient and very knowledgeable and helpful person who always listens to us parents and provides guidance and support. Now my daughter is much better
A decade of struggle with my chronic stomach issues like bloating, palpitations, giddiness, burping and indigestion. I was bedridden and had episodes of hospital visits. This was how my life was for the past 10 years until I consulted Dr Menka Gupta.She gave me a holistic approach to my gut issues. Her assessments were done step by step to find out the root cause for my condition. I was treated only for the symptoms in the hospital which evaded and rebounded again in a month. My gut health became haywire. Dr Gupta explained to me clearly how functional medicine works holistically and how to settle my stomach issues. I have been travelling with Nutra Nourish for the past 1 year. I feel so good with no hospital visits and terrible symptoms. With a lot of positive thought, I am continuing my healing journey with Dr Menka. Many thanks to her for changing my lifestyle.
I consulted Dr Menka for my 9year old son for a gut healing program. He was facing problems like constipation and skin eczema. We started with the basic food allergies tests and stool analysis. Dr’s diagnosis was leaky gut. I followed the program for about 6months. And my son’s conditions improved slowly. I am very happy with the progress and the improvements my son made. I would highly recommend the gut-healing program if one has symptoms.
I have been an IBD patient for over twelve years, with a recent relapse of extreme symptoms. I am glad I reached out to Menka over a year back. She has been a wealth of information and has channelized my work with this disease with a very new and forward-looking perspective. It involves a lot of dedication, but has been so worth the effort and the money spent on my health, working with Menka.
I would like to thank Dr Menka and Nutra Nourish for changing my life. I was suffering from severe pain abdomen for many years with a poor quality of life and even though I’m a doctor myself and consulted many doctors, no one could give a proper diagnosis. Thanks to Dr Menka for recognising my problem and also inducing a healthier lifestyle. She not only managed to help with my pain but also with the help of nutrients and home remedies helped to normalize my blood pressure and cholesterol and I could stop taking medications. I would personally recommend her.

I was seeing Dr Menka for my gut issues and reflux. She is very professional and adopts a step by step approach to addressing my health concerns. She puts in place a suitable supplement plan, diet, as well as recipes suitable for my health issues. I am seeing improvement in my gut problems and have learned to eat healthily as well. Thanks, Dr Menka.
Menka turned my gut health around! When I went to see her I had bad acid reflux and ongoing nausea daily, through access to cutting edge testing and some specific supplementation we cleaned up my gut and healed the damage. I had seen numerous doctors try and solve this issue but aside from prescribing ongoing medicines to mask the symptoms, no one could really find the root cause. I am so thankful to Menka for all her expertise and advice and would highly recommend her!
We have had the pleasure of working with Menka Gupta in solving the problems my then 11-year old daughter Mille was experiencing with eczema, diarrhoea and bloating.
Throughout her upbringing, we have been disregarded by ordinary doctors when requesting to find the underlying cause – “just use this cortisone cream and feed her more fibre”. One doctor instructed us to follow the Low Fodmap diet, but without any proper follow-up and reintroduction of food, eczema returned full force and now we had no idea at all what was causing it. Menka was very gentle in her approach and in the consultations with my daughter. It was wonderful to finally have someone look at the full picture of her health history in order to find the underlying cause and lead her on the right track to healing her gut and body. Menka was very good at explaining how the body, brain, and gut connection work so that also my daughter could understand, which made Mille committed in following the 5 “R” gut healing program. Though it can be hard to say “no” to the ordinary likings of kids, Mille did well. It has been a journey that has widened our food repertoire and though we were eating healthy before, our diet and cooking have improved tremendously and the food tastes so much better. It doesn’t come easy, but it is so much worth it! After the 5 “R” program back in 2106 Mille was free of her symptoms, but unfortunately, perforated appendicitis and heavy antibiotic treatment caused a flare-up in symptoms. Now living in Norway, Menka helped once more through Skype calls and email, making a plan for quick recovery. Mille is now 13, and a strong-willed teenager fed up with symptoms and strict diets, but we know what to do to get back on track. Again it is not an easy fix, but we know we will get there eventually.
On a side note, I can inform you that I followed the 5 “R” program eating the same diet as Mille in sympathy to support her. I did not feel unhealthy before, however, cutting out milk and wheat/gluten I experienced the symptoms of arthritis in my finger joints disappear as well having a better bowel movement and stubborn cellulitis gone. Win-Win 😉
Our family gives Menka our highest recommendation – it is such a pleasure working with her.
The Jensen Family
Finding Menka is like a dream come true to me. I always wanted to have a health provider who is really good in his/her field, practices a holistic approach, believes in natural treatment, specific in giving treatment, one that I can have a discussion with, who can explain what’s going on and willing to answer questions, so it is like teamwork rather than a “boss-subordinate” relationship. Those I found in Menka, plus she is not only having a medical background but also a Personalised Nutritionist and Functional Medicine Practitioner.
I suffer from an Autoimmune disease called Sjögren Syndrome, and my condition was quite a mess when I met Menka. I was weak, easily tired, sometimes breathless, very limited in doing my own daily activities which forced me to be dependent on others. Cough out mucus daily due to my lung problem, had joint pains in my upper extremities mostly, couldn’t swallow solid food, had dry eyes, mood swings, easily irritated, and many other symptoms.
So, deciding to join the Functional Medicine program given by Menka, doing Functional Medicine cutting edge tests and unique that I had never seen and known before, we discovered many underlining problems within my body that related to my autoimmune condition. Within 7-8 months of treatment I already feel so much better especially energy-wise, I am mostly independently doing my daily activities, most of my symptoms disappeared such as joint pains, tiredness and fatigue, coughing and mucus, sleeping better and yet the only major things that I did were diet and supplementing designed specifically according to my body needs. I no longer used my eye drops because I didn’t experience dryness in my eyes, I started having back my swallowing ability and gaining weight. Today when I wrote my testimony, I was already back on doing my work (in a time when I was healthy), even doing many more activities and work, I can swallow solid food and eat normally.
I am still in the program and will continue to do so until all my Autoimmune related problems have been taken care of, there’s no other field that can fix my Autoimmune condition except Functional Medicine (based on my own experience), and I am glad I am part of it and find good health provided like Menka.
