Having worked as an Integrative Medical Doctor since 2009, I know that there is so much that you can do to improve your health, before you need to see a doctor. Integrative Medicine is all about empowering YOU with the tools to look after your own health.
Dr Anna Forbes's goal is to share her wealth of knowledge with as many people as she can. Carrying a wealth of experience, knowledge and skills, until now she has, like most doctors, just focussed on seeing patients on a one-to-one basis.
Whilst Anna also works as a Functional Medicine Doctor, she prefers the term Integrative Medical Doctor to describe what she does - an Integrative Medicine Doctor works to support your whole system to allow the mind and body to heal itself. By working at the level of the root cause of the disease process, one can begin to reverse it by incorporating the best of both allopathic and natural, holistic medicine. We don’t separate the mind and body - they are both intrinsically linked and neither can be ignored in favour of the other. Multiple factors affect both and all must be considered.
Having said the above, the easiest and best place to start is with the physical - through nutrition and supplement programmes. Once the body is in a better place, healing for the mind and emotional body can take place far more swiftly.
Anna now wants to offer the cornerstones of the programmes that she uses in her clinic for all to access. If this knowledge was easily accessible for anyone, it would save on private consultation fees for many and aid towards vastly improving the health of our nation.
