This young patient was told that he would be put on immune supressing drugs for his Crohns disease. Oddly, he was feeling his disease was in control with simpler medication, yet a colonoscopy revealed lesions in his large bowel that hadn’t fully healed. The gastro doctor had told his mother that he needed to be on the immune suppressants; and if he didn’t there was a strong chance of getting bowel cancer in the future. Scared beyond her wits but also knowing in her gut this didn’t feel right, the mum found Dr Ashvy.
She again changed his diet, removing foods that are ‘normally seen as’ healthy such as whole grains, chia seeds, tuna and grapes (to name a few) but didn’t really don’t agree with someone with inflammatory bowel disease. She added in Ayurvedic herbs, pro-biotic and pre-biotic food and abdominal massage. She asked him to incorporate mindfulness and meditation on a daily basis and gave him a spiritual prescription. A year later; his large bowel colonoscopy revealed 50% less lesions and his gastroenterologist was happy for him to come of all his medications
I am dr. Ashvy Bhardwaj: a medical doctor, nutritionist, functional medicine expert, personal trainer and single mum.
Oh, and I am pretty good in the kitchen too!
I work with patients who have all manner of symptoms, getting to the root cause of their problem and offering lifestyle solutions that put these diseases in remission.
My patients have these things in common:
- They want to see one doctor who can fix all their health problems, and not keep on referring to other specialties.
- They know that the conventional “one size fits all” model hasn’t worked for them.
- They want regular contact with their doctor for support and advice along their transformative journey.
- They are completely ready, willing and able to transform their health.
"Our first consult was such a relief to me, finally someone who wanted to actually help me and was confident in their approach to do so."

"By taking a very measured and easy approach to my diet, I’ve actually managed to shift my mid riff. Years of fad diets couldn’t get these results!"

"I was so unhappy with all the drugs I was on.
Over the time dr. Ashvy got me off most of my medicines including antidepressants."
