Dr. Sandeep Gupta, MD

Dr. Sandeep Gupta is a board-certified general practice physician practicing on Australia’s Sunshine Coast. He runs a busy integrative medicine practice, Lotus Holistic Medicine, helping his patients to achieve optimal health and finding answers to complex medical problems.

Dr. Gupta graduated from medical school at the University of Queensland in 1999. Since then he has served in a range of public and private hospitals in the South-East Queensland region, as a cardiology, medical, and anesthetic registrar. He also has five years of experience working in Intensive Care, particularly in the area of post-cardiac surgery care.

Dr. Gupta then went on to invest many years of training in integrative medicine and was awarded a Fellowship from the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM) in 2008 and a Fellowship from the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) in 2010. He also has a Master of Nutrition with Dr. Gabriel Cousens. Other major influences include William Wolcott CN, Robert Marshall PhD, and Dietrich Klinghardt MD PhD who he has trained in ART.

Dr. Gupta established the Lotus Institute of Holistic Health to provide training in integrative medicine for health professionals and the public. The institute launched the first version of its flagship online course Mold Illness Made Simple in October 2016, and the second version launched in October 2020. He is a founding board member of the Australian Chronic Infectious & Inflammatory Disease Society (ACIIDS) and a founding diplomate member of the International Society of Environmentally Acquired Illness (ISEAI).

He was the first non-US physician to complete the certification in biotoxin illness with Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker in 2014. Since then, he has co-authored the physician consensus statement titled Medically sound investigation and remediation of water-damaged buildings in cases of CIRS-WDB.

Dr. Gupta strives to walk his talk in his own life, keeps up to date with current developments in the field and genuinely aims to approach all clients with respect, service, and empathy. He believes that listening and the validation of an individual’s journey are some of the most powerful gifts any practitioner can give.

In his spare time, he plays guitar and keyboard and enjoys tennis, golf, practicing meditation, and enjoying new music and philosophical concepts.
