About

Dr Anna Forbes is a UK-trained medical doctor specialising in Integrative Medicine. This is an increasingly popular approach that combines the best of Conventional Medicine and Natural Medicine. Addressing the root cause of illness, using a drug-free treatment approach, allows us to support the body to return to a healthy balanced state. Disease is almost always related to toxicity issues, nutritional deficiencies and/or psycho-emotional factors.

Dr. Forbes qualified in 2006 and left NHS work in 2011. She has trained extensively since 2008 in different types of Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy, Mind-Body Medicine, Nutrition, Functional Medicine, Intravenous Nutrient Therapy, Plasmolifting and Scenar therapy. She also practises Bio-chemical Individualism, which uses a scientific approach to body typing, providing personalised diet and supplement protocols according to body type. The body type that we have determines our disease susceptibility. Different body types lack certain enzymes that require specific combinations of food groups and enzyme supplementation.

Dr. Forbes works with all chronic (long-term) disease using an Integrative and Functional Medicine approach to assessment and treatment. Typically her patients have either hit a brick wall within the conventional medicine framework, are looking for a drug-free approach to treatment or simply want improved outcomes by using a combination of conventional and Integrative Medicine. She works with an expert team of natural therapists alongside cutting edge technology and devices, providing a fully comprehensive health service.

Dr Anna Forbes is easy to talk to , very approachable and has solid knowledge of her treatment protocols. Working initially on my broad gut health, as a first step, I experienced noticeable positive shifts within 3 weeks. .

I recently had a Body-Typing or Biochemical Individualism consultation with Dr Anna Forbes. It was a brilliant consultation. Her professional knowledge, warmth and generosity of time are absolutely exemplary. I truly felt listened to and Dr Forbes took her time to explain and expand on things that needed explaining. At no point during the consultation did I feel rushed or inhibited to ask questions as Dr Forbes has a great ability to connect with patients and put them at ease. It was a pleasure to have this consultation and I consider myself privileged to have known Dr Forbes. All in all, full marks for an excellent service delivered by a very accomplished doctor and beautiful inside and out.

Visiting Dr Forbes with my partner, both of us suffering with some digestive and immune issues, we were taken aback at the very human, empathetic side of Anna. (We had the intravenous drips). She listened to us, eased our fears - (my partner having a phobia of needles!) - and wrote down some after care treatment for us both, including guidance on nutrition, sleep and general well being. The clinic is warm and quaint, feeling personable the moment you walk in - not that cold, non-intimate feeling you often have when visiting a clinic or Doctor's office. The treatment itself was unintrusive, considering it is a needle in your arm! We both felt our bodies go into a process following the treatment; colours intensified as we noticed our systems detoxifying. After just one session, our digestive issues improved 100%. It was quite remarkable. Highly recommend.

Dr Forbes was very professional, yet authentic and genuine in her feedback and counsel. She clearly has a wealth of knowledge in the field to provide immediate and thoughtful responses to questions. She also works to remove any ambiguity in the diagnosis if any, through further assessments. Throughout the process, her correspondence and communication has been professional, timely and pleasant. Could not recommend her more.

So interesting and useful! Anna is someone you can really trust. She has clearly worked on herself a lot and as a result has much to offer others. Anna made me feel really comfortable and treated me as an individual and really listened at a time when I needed it most. I went away with some great advice and recommendations.
