The Gupta Program is an online program focused on helping you heal from chronic health conditions like Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), multiple chemical sensitivities and chronic pain conditions.
These are all conditions that both western medicine and alternative medicine treatments struggle to make a lasting difference.
The program was developed by Ashok Gupta who has done 20 years of research into these chronic illnesses and has worked with 1,000’s of clients - now he has developed an online program so that anyone can benefit from his system of healing.
Within 75% of people recovering by 80 to 100% within one year, it is a program worth trying.
The confidence that Ashok Gupta has in the program working for you is backed up by a one-year money-back guarantee, so you have nothing to lose with trying this program.
If you have a chronic health problem that is not improving, and you have tried a variety of treatments without success then the Gupta Program may be of benefit to you.
I have worked with a lot of clients with chronic illnesses, and many people get great improvement once they address the underlying cause of their condition. The cause may be gut infections, high stress, poor diet, nutritional deficiencies or a hormonal imbalance.
So for some people addressing the underlying cause is all they need to do to get well, which is the basis of functional medicine, rather than just treating symptoms with medications which are the treatment approach in conventional medicine.
But for a growing number of people they have done the diet and lifestyle changes, they have tried every supplement possible and yet they are still not well - if this is you or someone you care for then you may benefit from the Gupta program.
The Gupta Program is based on retraining the brain so that the body does not respond in a negative way to stress and external stimulus.
Ashok Gupta calls this the “Neuron Immune Condition Syndrome”.
Does this mean that it is “all in my head”?
While the Gupta Program focuses on retraining the brain not to react, and in particular the Amygdala and Insula regions of the brain - this does not mean that your symptoms are not real and that you are imagining this illness (which is often the impression that doctors will give you)
The brain goes into a hyper-defensive mode which overstimulates the immune and nervous systems which cause physical symptoms like pain, fatigue, and brain fog.
But we need to treat the brain and not just focus on symptoms.
Ashok Gupta has done 20 years of research and also published research on how the brain is the cause of these chronic health conditions. There has also been a study by the Mayo clinic showing that the Amygdala retraining used by the Gupta Program is effective.
There has also been extensive research by Robert Naviaux into what he calls the “Cell Danger Response” and this is where the nervous system and immune system are over-reacting to threats that are no longer there.
The Cell Danger Response is essentially the same as Neuron Immune Condition Syndrome and it is where the brain perceives stress that is no longer there. These physical stressors may originally be heavy metals, chemicals, psychological trauma or bacterial/ viral infections.
The Gupta Program is similar to Annie Hopper’s DNRS training program and both programs will give good results, however, the Gupta Program is easier to follow and the training videos are of a higher quality - and this is important if you are suffering from a chronic health condition.
The Gupta Program was developed by Ashok Gupta after suffering from CFS/ ME, to get well Ashok extensively study the brain and this can affect illness and from this, the Gupta Program was developed.
Version 5.0 is now available and while the core training is the same, the quality of the online course has improved over the years and this current version is high quality and easy to follow.
The core of the Gupta Program is the three Rs.
So that’s the three Rs of the Gupta Program. But the core of the Gupta Program is this very unique brain retraining, training the amygdala and training the insula out of this hypervigilance state which is causing physical symptoms.
The main focus is training the brain that we are no longer in the situation that we were at the beginning of the condition, so it no longer needs to send the same messages which are contributing to your chronic symptoms.
“The brain retraining involves a seven-step process, where we enable people to become more conscious of when they are having an unconscious reaction. As an example, the brain is constantly fixating the mind’s attention on the symptoms. We may have a symptom in the leg that says, “Right, my legs are feeling heavy and dragging, and I don’t have any energy in my legs at all, and I’m feeling exhausted.” - Ashok Gupta
What is a very unconscious reaction now becomes more conscious. In the seven-step process, it’s interrupting that particular defense response. Then there’s breathing, self-coaching, visualization. There’s a whole set of different techniques, something called timeline therapy, all put together into one process, which then trains it again and again and again. Until the brain gets the message that we are not in the same dangerous situation we were at the beginning of the condition.”
You'll have your private account that you can access from different devices. In the online membership area, you'll find 15 interactive video sessions, which explain all the brain retraining techniques and many audio exercises, meditations and other supporting tools.
There is no magic cure for chronic health conditions like fibromyalgia, CFS/ ME, chronic pain and the many other chronic health conditions that affect people, which is why they affect so many people.
The Gupta Program and brain retraining are not a magic pill to get you well, you still need to address diet and nutrition, sleep and the underlying trigger for your condition. However, for the many people who have tried those things without success, this is an important piece of the puzzle.
While the science behind this is still limited the results that people get are very positive, and it is something that is hard to study as drug companies who fund these studies can’t make money out of it.
There are hundreds of positive online reviews and I have had many clients use the brain retraining programs to great effect.
