About me

Dr. Brett “Forrest” Shenkman is a licensed Naturopathic Medical Doctor (NMD) who is loved by his patients for his compassion, attention to detail, encouragement, and effective, innovative natural treatments. He deeply believes in the healing power of nature inherent in all people and has a true talent for activating it in his patients to bring about true healing. His favorite healing tools include nutrition and diet therapy, botanical medicine, cleansing and detoxification, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, counseling, and mind/body medicine.

Since he was a young child, Dr. Forrest had a special gift for understanding the needs of others and wanted to one day use this gift as a physician. When he was 16, he suffered with severe depression and anxiety and when he was 23 he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. He was disappointed with the way his doctors managed these serious conditions and it wasn’t until he took responsibility for his health into his own hands that he truly overcame them. He now sees his struggle with diabetes and his history of depression as opportunities that have lead him to live a healthier, happier, more meaningful life than he would have been capable of without these serious health challenges. By personally overcoming these struggles he has cultivated a unique wealth of wisdom, empathy, and encouragement that he uses to help his patients - to not only overcome their own health issues - but also to use them as an opportunity to become healthier and happier than ever before.

Dr. Forrest completed a bachelor degree in Philosophy and Science in 2011 at Kutztown University, PA graduating Suma Cum Laude. He earned a certificate in Permaculture in 2012 and, soon after, began naturopathic medical school at National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, OR. In 2017 he completed his rigorous 5-year program and was awarded a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine, graduating at the top of his class with Highest Honors. During his medical education he also completed a year of coursework in holistic mind/body medicine and mental health counseling.

After graduating medial school he completed an internship at True North Health Center in Santa Rosa, CA where he learned to use fasting and a whole-food-plant-based diet to rapidly and deeply detoxify the body and heal various ailments. In 2019 he completed a 15-month residency program at an intensive inpatient holistic medical facility in Sedona, AZ where he successfully treated various conditions ranging from high blood pressure, to rheumatoid arthritis, to end-stage pancreatic cancer and everything in between.

In his free time, Dr. Forrest enjoys cooking, hiking, biking, writing, and spending time with friends and family. He is also a semi-professional singer/songwriter. Listen to his music for free at www.soundcloud.com/the-mobs.

In March 2019 he, his wife, Naomi, and their pug, Frank, moved back to the Northeast US to be closer to family and to bring this refreshing, powerful medicine to Lehigh Valley, PA and Cape Cod, MA where it is desperately needed.
