Inflammation Treatments

Nina B. 43, an attorney from Manhattan was very confused and concerned about her well being. Because of a busy hectic work schedule, Nina was not taking good care of herself. She had a very bad diet and did not get enough sleep at night. Nina had severe stomach pains, joint pains, skin rashes and was fatigued every day.


Nina could not go on anymore feeling this way and was determined to find a solution. She did some research online and decided to reach out to Patients Medical as they were the oldest holistic medical center in NYC. Nina made an appointment with Dr. Gulatti who is a Board Certified Holistic Internal Medicine Practitioner with two MD's - one each in Internal Medicine and Pathology. Dr. Gulatti has over 20 years of medical experience and has hospital privileges at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Manhattan.

Dr. Gulatti gave Nina almost a two-hour consultation and ordered a number of very detail oriented tests. After her test results came back Dr. Gulatti went over each detail with Nina. Dr.Gulatti discovered that Nina had Chronic inflammation in her intestines, off balance thyroid due to hyperthyroidism and was overweight.

Dr. Gulatti quickly made a holistic wellness plan just for Nina to get to the root cause of Nina’s problems, instead of just treating her symptoms with medicine. Nina followed Dr. Gulatti’s plan for her to the T. Nina’s health, well being and feeling of self-empowerment and confidence about the choices she made in taking care of herself have drastically improved!


Nina’s Chronic inflammation in her intestines are healed, she loss unnecessary weight, her thyroid is balanced, she is getting a full night of sleep and she can’t get enough of compliments every day on her glowing skin. Here is Nina in her own words from a Yelp review she made about Patients Medical:

What you need to know about inflammation

Researchers are vigorously researching chronic Inflammation’s damage to the body and preventive applications such as genetic DNA testing. Patient Medical now offer Genetic DNA testing give us a call for more information.

Inflammation in your body can cause a wide range of diseases like Crohn’s disease, cancer, asthma, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and arthritis. Just taking pills to help your symptoms will not benefit you but harm your body.

Inflammation in your body acts as a defense mechanism. Our immune system seeks out damaged cells, pathogens and irritants, and begins the process of healing. Anytime something irritating or harmful effects our body, there will be a response biologically to get rid of it. Inflammation symptoms are or can be uncomfortable but that means that the body is trying to heal itself. Inflammation is not always bad. Inflammation is a natural defense that the body uses to fight viruses, damaged tissue, etc. Inflammation works hard to remove these harmful invaders and bring about healing.
