As a GP qualified holistic doctor, Dr. Derakshan primarily focuses on treating psychiatric and gastrointestinal illnesses using the most recent research, combining Western Medicine and Traditional approaches including nutritional and dietary interventions. In the past 10 years, the connection between gut bacteria (microbiome) and health of the gut and brain has become better understood. There is additionally a connection between the gut and brain, often referred to as the gut-brain axis. Correcting the microbiome, therefore, plays a vital role in improving both gastrointestinal as well as psychiatric health. Dr Derakshan looks at treating the underlying cause of disease, rather that treating only the symptoms.
Conditions we treat include: Anxiety, Depression, OCD, Bipolar, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s disease, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
