About London Bioidentical Hormones

London Bioidentical Hormones

At London Bioidentical Hormones, we believe in the importance of preventative medicine, as opposed to purely curative.

We are a fully online clinic that specialises in treating a variety of hormonal imbalances with bioidentical hormones and a holistic, functional medicine approach. We also offer Nutritional Therapy consultations.

Having a solid foundation of nourishment through food is vital for optimal health and we are thrilled to be part of a movement where a Doctor and a Nutritional Therapist can work in synergy to support our patients on their healing journeys.

We help our patients achieve the best possible results through highly personalised treatment plans to optimise their health.

Whatclinic.co.uk Review, November 2018

“Feeling fantastic. With complete clarity and control of my body – No more out of sorts, imbalanced and with brain fog. I saw Dr Anu Arasu for the first time last September, and am now finally on the road to recovering my body.”

Whatclinic.co.uk Review, April 2017

“Dr Arasu is a first class physician and a joy to have as a medical consultant. She is knowledgable, informed and highly professional. In addition, she is an outstanding listener and takes time to elicit from the patient any concerns or issues relating to treatment or general medical profile. I would definitely recommend Dr Arasu to a friend and indeed have!”

Whatclinic.co.uk Review, November 2015

“Catherine is a very caring and nurturing individual and I found her to be very giving and professional throughout … my mindset with regard to food is far healthier and more balanced than ever before. I put this down to the gentle yet powerful guidance of Catherine during our numerous video meetings over the course of the programme. She has been like a rock for me, and amid the stresses of life, when food choices are often difficult, she offered such healthy and sensible advice that I have completely changed my relationship with food and I’m very grateful for her guidance.”
