    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.

    Anna recommended the kids enzymes for my 3 year old who has a dairy intolerance. After taking the enzymes over 2/3 months she was able to have some dairy and have no reactions. I couldn't believe it! She's always struggled with constipation, particularly after having gluten but again that's improved massively since the enzymes. Thank you Anna 😊

    Anna recommended some enzymes to me that have been fairly life changing and more effective than any supplement I have ever tried. (And I've tried a lot!) I started taking them during the last trimester of my second pregnancy with a view to helping my long-standing gut issues and also preventing the terrible reflux and allergies in my second child that my first child suffered. My baby is now 6 months old and has had no reflux whatsoever and I no longer have any bloating. Nor do I suffer from the food headaches I used to get post meals, presumably from not properly breaking down my food. I had previously used a whole range of enzymes but none of them seemed to have any effect at all so I was reluctant to try these. I'm so glad I did!

    We met with Dr. Anna almost a month ago now and although haven’t intentionally left it this long to write a review but also good as can comment on progress. She was so attentive and personable and made us feel comfortable immediately. After listening to the issues we were facing with our son she provided us with a plan to move forward. Since implementing this over the past few weeks we’ve already seen so many changes in him. While some issues will inevitably take a little longer to correct themselves we noticed an almost immediate improvement with his bloating, gas issues with which he was suffering. We thank you for your help, it’s already made the world of difference to our family.
