MEET DR NEETIKA DANG
Founded by Dr Neetika Dang – a qualified doctor with over 20 years of experience working within general practice, women’s health, occupational health and education – she takes a holistic approach, considering both physical and psychological aspects of health.
Dr Neet is all about getting to the root causes of health issues and championing preventative measures. It’s a new healthcare era focused on longevity and overall wellbeing. The Bespoke Clinic redefines healthcare in Newcastle with Dr Neet’s vision for personalised, preventative and comprehensive wellness taking centre stage – putting you and your unique needs at the heart of every treatment.
Although working in medicine for over two decades, Dr Neet is passionate about making a change in the healthcare industry to try and reduce the amount of medication we’re taking or even better, prevent the need for medication in the future to lead better and healthier lives.
Whether you’re struggling with your menopause symptoms, exploring functional medicine, or seeking guidance on vitamins and supplements, The Bespoke Clinic is your partner in optimising your new health journey.
We caught up with Dr Neet to get the lowdown on how vitamins and supplements can transform your life.
THE IMPORTANCE OF VITAMINS AND SUPPLEMENTS
Turns out, despite our best efforts, the nutritional value of our food might be taking a hit from factors like pesticides and genetically modified foods. Dr Neet stresses that our body’s pathways need essential vitamins and minerals to function at their best.
To bridge that nutritional gap, The Bespoke Clinic creates personalised treatment plans with carefully selected, high-quality supplements tailored to your individual needs.
Dr Neet warns against those cheaper options from the high street, emphasising the importance of therapeutic doses and the right forms and quality of vitamins and nutrition that your body will actually use and absorb.
WINTER WELLNESS ESSENTIALS
A multivitamin – everyone should be on a high-quality multivitamin which has the right ingredients and is ‘bioavailable’. Dr Neet says, ‘an easy way to pick one from the high street is to start with the ingredient list: if there are items in there that sound like chemicals or fillers or you just don’t understand, put it back and try another brand’.
Vitamin D3 – studies have shown that over 50% of the UK population is vitamin D deficient and adding this easy-to-access vitamin to your daily routine can reduce your risk of flu by more than the flu vaccine. Dr Neet advises testing to get a good baseline idea first but if not, then at least take 1000-2000 iu a day. This dose can be reduced in the summer and increased in the winter. Tests are available through your GP especially if you have any symptoms or you can get them done at The Bespoke Clinic.
Fish 0il – Some studies say 90% of our population is deficient in Omega 3 but if we get our Omega 3 intakes right, then we can reduce inflammation, improve our immune system, and extend our lifespan. However, this is about having the right Omega 3 – look for DHA and EPA at the right doses from companies who extract this in a way which is clean and pure
Dr Neet adds that studies have shown that even if we eat three portions of oily fish a week, or even daily, we still don’t get the doses needed to reduce disease. We need essential fatty acids for our brain and so many other functions in our body. Dr Neet takes Bare Biology Omega 3 as it is a UK-based company with great doses at a reasonable price point.
