About Dr Indra

My name is Dr Indra Barathan. I am a practicing NHS GP and Specialist Functional Medicine Practitioner. I truly believe in a holistic assessment of my patients, a notion at the very heart of functional medicine, but one which I can rarely offer to my NHS patients due to time restrictions.

I opened my clinic in 2016, in Roundhay, Leeds from where I provide specialist functional medicine consultations in conjunction with private GP appointments. I truly believe that this is the future of healthcare. This year, I am joining the team at Optimised Personal Wellness in Manchester to offer Functional Medicine Consultations.

Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease. It’s an evolution in medical practice that is believed to better address the healthcare needs of the 21st century. It shifts the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centred approach, and sees patient and practitioner work together in a therapeutic partnership. In this way functional medicine practice addresses the whole person and their lifestyle, and not just an isolated set of symptoms.

By finding the root cause of the condition, symptom improvement or resolution may be possible through changes to diet and lifestyle alone. However, some conditions may require conventional treatment alongside a functional approach. As a qualified GP and functional medicine practitioner I understand both approaches can be necessary for many patients who are on medication. An in-depth knowledge of acute and serious pathology also means serious underlying conditions that might require urgent referral are not missed.

Combining conventional medicine with functional medicine, I work in partnership with my patients to address health issues to help them achieve optimum health benefits. I truly believe this is the future of health care and it can help many patients live a healthier life. My focus is very much on:
