"I am feeling like a new person thanks to your help!"
"I do not need my Reflux tablets any more, and as an added bonus, I have lost 11 lbs in weight. Ann is very knowledgeable and supportive and I have already recommended her to friends. Thank you Ann."
"I am now feeling very calm and my brain fog has completely gone. I have so much more energy!"
I have a holistic and functional medicine approach addressing the root cause of your health issues and focusing on the body as a whole, rather than on individual symptoms. I look at your underlying imbalances and deficiencies, impaired digestion, toxic overload as well as emotional trauma to restore overall health. Simple and realistic dietary and lifestyle changes can significantly improve your well-being, and a low allergenic diet with the removal of toxins, allows your immune system to repair, and your body to function properly.
Digestion is a key factor in health and symptoms such as bloating, wind, reflux, food allergies, autoimmune, weight-gain, skin conditions and other diseases can develop unless corrected. 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 suffered multiple allergies when in my early twenties, which were successfully dealt with through nutritional medicine and since then I focused my full attention and career on helping others regain their health. You may be struggling with unidentified allergies, whether they are niggling skin rashes/eruptions/diagnosed conditions, weight-gain, bloating after meals, hormonal imbalances, trying to conceive or other symptoms of illness that you find are impairing your life. Whatever it is, my expertise can help you find and address the cause.
I offer a full range of functional laboratory diagnostic testing at leading laboratories if appropriate. I am passionate about nutritional medicine and helping people with their health problems, and each new case I see I approach with real enthusiasm and a dedication to do all I possibly can to help that person on every level. The application of nutrition science - an evidence-based approach maximising your health potential through individually formulated nutritional and lifestyle changes, healthy blood sugar balance, emotional and psychological well-being and optimum gastrointestinal health.
Pre-conception and healthy pregnancy
Allergies - multiple food and chemical sensitivities
Unexplained symptoms - neurological symptoms
Find your balance by testing for mineral and toxic levels, adrenals, thyroid, kidney/liver trends, sugar, oxidation, protein assimilation, cortisol and aldosterone production, and more.

"His digestion has settled overnight and no major dramas after food intake! He can't thank you enough, especially, since he has had issues for decades."
"I feel incredible! My stomach is completely flat and since I've started eating what you suggested and taking the vitamins you suggested, I haven't been bloated, windy or constipated since. It's amazing!" (2 weeks after consultation)
"I'm now on day 3 of eating my new diet plan and feeling so much better already. I feel like my stomach has deflated (i.e. no bloating) and feeling more refreshed and alert. So I'm really excited to see what the next few weeks bring if I'm already feeling so much better after a mere few days :)"

'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
