About Dr Indika

Dr. Indika

Dr. Indika is an experienced GP having many years of devoted service to the NHS. Despite her first-class conventional training, Dr. Indika felt increasingly disheartened by the fact that people of all ages seemed to be getting sicker, both mentally and physically. She found that the conventional toolkit of prescriptions, specialist referrals, surgery and psychological therapies coupled with basic lifestyle advice wasn’t offering a complete solution to the health of her patients. Moreover, sub-optimal health and progressive disease or dysfunction was being accepted by both clinicians and patients alike, as being part of their “new-normal” life.

Dr. Indika experienced her own health struggles and followed the conventional standard of care, but this didn’t help her feel better in any sustained way. It was only through her focus on good nutrition for her daughter that Dr. Indika discovered a different approach to health which goes beyond nutrition and lifestyle: Functional Medicine. She started to use this approach to heal herself and noticed a fulfilling transformation in her patient encounters as she brought elements of Functional Medicine to her NHS consultations.

Now a passionate advocate of Functional Medicine, Dr. Indika empathises with those who are going through their own mental and physical health struggles and fully understands how challenging it is to implement sustained lifestyle and behavioural changes within the fast pace of modern life.

Dr. Indika continually invests in her professional development and deepens her expertise by collaborating with clinicians from around the world to help obtain the best evidence-led advice for each patient that she sees: after all, every person is unique when viewed through a Functional Medicine lens! She runs her private clinic at HealthSpace, offering in-practice and virtual appointments as part of 6-8 month programmes.
