Dr Dilraj Kalsi (‘Dr Dil’) is a Lifestyle Doctor specialising in Functional Medicine. He graduated from the University of Oxford and, after working as a doctor, came to feel that patients’ symptoms were being treated rather than the deeper root causes of their long-term chronic diseases. After watching a loved one experience rheumatoid arthritis, Dr Dil was struck by the fact that all conventional medicine could offer her was long term medication and steroids. A lifestyle and diet overhaul following the advice of a Functional Medicine Nutritionist was sufficient to reduce and eventually cure her symptoms. Dr Dil was struck by the power of changes in a patient’s lifestyle to address the root cause of their chronic disease. Inspired, he trained in Functional Medicine, attending London’s Institute of Functional Medicine in 2018 to complete the “Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice” course.
He later founded “Hippocrates Lounge” so he could support patients with chronic disease in using lifestyle change to address their chronic disease. Dr Dil has come to believe how people eat, move, sleep, think and even their relationships are fundamental to their health. At Dr Dil’s Hippocrates Lounge patients tell their stories, set their health goals and then collate a week’s worth of health-related data. They are then given a number of personalised recommendations to enable them to improve their lifestyles and achieve their goals. The Lounge then offers regular check-ins in order to obtain long-term, sustainable changes in patients' behaviour. Hippocrates Lounge offers several different packages according to patients’ needs.
Please note: Appointments are all online via video call unless requested in-person at 1 Harley Street in advance.
