About me

With over 20 years experience in nutritional medicine, I have helped people of all ages. Some of the health problems I deal with are food intolerances, digestion, weight-gain, fertility, skin, low energy, toxicity, respiratory, hormonal, autoimmune diseases, babies/children's health. I practice at clinics in Surbiton, Claygate and Cobham, and focus on the underlying causes of illness, rather than just on individual symptoms.

Nutritional Medicine addresses the accumulation of inherited and acquired toxins through diet, reducing toxins in the body, and mineral balancing to restore complete health.  Simple dietary changes and reducing toxins in the body can have a significant impact on your health. Increased energy levels, ideal weight, and a positive feeling of vibrant health can be achieved through a low-allergenic diet and mineral balancing. Digestion is a key factor, and symptoms such as bloating, wind, reflux and food allergies, can manifest unless corrected. I look for signs of heavy metal toxicity, vitamin & mineral imbalances, impaired digestion, as well as emotional trauma. Digestion is vitally important as what we absorb each day in our diet, will affect every cell in our body and affect the way we look and feel.

I am passionate about helping people suffering with any health issues, or whose lives are impaired with allergies. I also have a special interest in preconceptual care for healthy pregnancies and babies, and have been particularly successful helping ‘infertile’ couples to conceive, and many other apparently incurable and complex conditions.

At consultations I use applied kinesiology to test for food intolerances and mineral deficiencies and when appropriate, recommend functional diagnostic testing at leading laboratories.

Years ago I suffered multiple allergies and discovered my symptoms arose from eating everyday foods. Implementing small changes to my diet and studying numerous health books, took me on the road to recovery. However, it wasn’t until a few years later when my young son, had a serious medical reaction, that I focused my full attention on nutritional medicine. With the knowledge I had gained, I was able to treat him naturally without surgery or medicines that were offered. It was through this experience that my passion for helping people address their health issues was born, and am pleased to say that the whole family have been exceptionally healthy ever since.

'I came to see Ann. After testing me on various foods, and finding some sensitivities, she advised keeping off these foods for a month.  She also gave me a diet to follow and supplements to address these symptoms which were triggered by some of the foods in my diet. I now feel a different person!'  S.K. - Surrey

"I feel better now than I've felt in years, and can now eat foods without reactions. I have a full time job as a teacher and live a normal, busy, active life - all of which is down to my change of diet and ultimately to Ann Shaw. Thank you!"   Ms S G - London

"Thank you so much for helping me. The diet that you put me on worked so well, and to my great pleasure, my skin looks better than ever. I am so happy! Thanks once again for your help and advice."                                                                    Ms A H - Middlesex
