Find It Hard To Lose Weight?
Always Yo-Yo Dieting?
Diets are only a short-term fix which often fail to address the root cause of your weight issues
We are led to believe that all we need to do is eat less and exercise more. However, this does not work for everyone – we are all different. In fact, The Calorie Theory has been tried and tested with study after study demonstrating over the past 100 years that the calorie approach does not work. Cutting calories or burning more calories does not fix the underlying problem. Weight management requires an approach that appreciates that multiple environmental and lifestyle factors affect your weight.
Your Weight loss journey with us is consultant-led and you will be given the support you need
How It Works?
At DNA Health we understand that losing weight is not easy and that it’s even harder to maintain once you have reached your goals. Calorie counting, and gym sessions are not the only answers and rarely work. If your weight gain is metabolic or hormonal, then restricting calories or over exercising could have the opposite effect.
Led by Dr Nasr Al Jafari, a specialist UK Functional Medical Doctor, we have developed a weight loss approach which has proven to be successful for all our clients.Developed and researched over a number of years in the UK, our Functional Medicine approach finds the underlying cause of your weight management issues through detailed client analysis and functional testing.
We then develop a personalised program for you that is led and monitored by Dr Nasr Al Jafari and his team. DNA Health is the only fully integrated weight loss clinic in the Middle East, which offers a Doctor led holistic program.

What Our Clients Say
“I found DNA Health and Wellness Clinic to be very helpful and knowledgeable.
My first appointment with Dr Nasr was very relaxed and he made me feel comfortable. Talking to someone about your weight can be very uncomfortable, I never felt this with Dr Nasr. We created a way forward for me.
He has always been very accessible and supportive.
Since mid July I have lost a substantial amount of weight, I have stopped having night sweats and my sleep is improving. He explained that hormone imbalance and lack of sleep has a huge effect on people. I have learnt so much about myself and nutrition during this time. Throughout I have been supported on this journey by Dr Nasr and this has been a huge help.
I still have a long way to go but am sure with the help of DNA and Dr Nasr I will achieve my goals.”
“Throughout this journey I thought nothing would be possible and I would not
find a solution to my struggle with losing weight and feeling happy with myself.
However, with the help of Dr. Nasr and the team, I have been able to achieve my
goals. I would love to thank them for the motivation during this experience
which has made me grow into a confident person. I look forward to continuing
this journey alongside the both of them until I reach my final goal”
