“Hello, My name is Leke. I am a practising NHS GP, Functional Medicine Doctor and Wellness Consultant.”
My name is Leke.
I am a practising NHS GP, Functional Medicine Doctor and Wellness Consultant.
For years I suffered from poor gut and overall health.
I saw the best specialists in their various fields but was told everything was normal-None had the answer.
On starting GP training, I quickly realised there were many patients in my position who were suffering despite having normal blood tests and scans.
That's when I was convinced conventional medicine did not have all the answers, mainly concerning chronic disease.
This set me on a relentless journey not only to fix my health but also the health of my patients.
Along my journey, I discovered functional medicine, a science-based model that seeks to find the root cause of disease.
In the end, I fixed my gut and overall health.
To share what I learned and help NHS patients, I wrote the book titled How To Stay Ahead of Your Doctor and Influence Your Health. (Available on Amazon)
I also launched Gut Health Medic,(www.guthealthmedic.com) an online website to help patients with difficult-to-treat gut and related disorders.
I also have an online course called the Optimal Health Prescription Program designed for busy professionals to supercharge their health and tackle the stresses of modern life.
Apart from medicine, I have numerous interests:
I am also an inventor, with products mainly in the kitchen space.
I managed to secure a licensing deal a few years ago but the deal fell through.
I am still working on licensing more of my products.
I love music, and listen to anything from opera, to Timba (Cuban salsa).
I also play guitar and keyboards and love cooking too!
