Dr. Sanjay Gupta

Sanjay Gupta is an award-winning Consultant Cardiologist from York UK.

Dr. Gupta’s ability to reduce stress through knowledge is life-altering. His YouTube channel, Sanjay Gupta York Cardiology, is a labor of love where he presents over 200 educational videos to nearly 30,000 subscribers.

Dr. Gupta has 28 years in the medical profession. He qualified in 1995 from Charing Cross Hospital in London and relocated to Manchester where he completed a research fellowship in heart failure medicine. He then completed his specialist training in Hull and in 2009 went to the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston Massachusetts to complete a fellowship in Cardiac Magnetic Resonance. After being appointed as a Consultant Cardiologist at York Hospital in 2010, he helped to develop cardiac imaging services including stress echocardiography, trans-esophageal echocardiography and cardiac CT. His specialty interests include all aspects of non-invasive cardiology and imaging.

Dr. Gupta will meet privately with attendees. A designated appointment time will be given on a first-come, first- served basis. The length of a consultation will depend on the number of people interested. 

While it is not obligatory, a donation for a consultation, in any amount made to Dr. Gupta’s favorite charity, The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, would be appreciated and acknowledge his incredible generosity.

Alternative Medicine

Carine Bonnist

Dr. Carine Bonnist will be available for the weekend to discuss alternative medicine on an informal basis with anyone interested. She earned her doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine at the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon and she practices in Westport, CT at Shalva Clinic. 

In her practice as a Naturopathic Physician, Dr. Bonnist interviews her patients about personal history, lifestyle, environment, and mental and emotional health. She uses physical exams and cutting-edge lab testing in order to get to the nucleus of patient complaints and chooses the most appropriate therapies. 

Concerned with determining the source of disease, her primary focus is treating the body as a whole; healing the person, not just the symptoms. Having the same philosophy as Dr. Gupta, they are sure to compliment each other.

Room blocks are being held under “Heart Health Seminar” at a special discounted rate of $149 plus tax.  No guarantee of the special discounted rate will apply after July 20. Reserve your room here.

*This is not a profit-making event. Dr. Gupta, Mr. Cord and Mr. Bonnist are donating their time. Your only seminar related expense is for the luncheon prepared by the Renaissance Hotel.
