About Claudia Louch

Claudia Louch is a health-scientist who believes passionately in applying the medicinal properties of plants and nature, to the ever widening range of ailments and afflictions associated with modern living.

She has appeared on the successful BBC2 program The Supersizers, and has contributed articles to the Observer, Healthy Magazine, Woman and Home, Natural Health, Zest, Pregnancy & Birth and the Royal College of Nursing Magazine ‘Family Health’. Claudia continues to contribute to various health orientated publications and websites.

Claudia studied Phytomedicine (Botanical Medicine) at one of the recognised leading universities in the country offering this specialisation, where she attained a Bachelor of Science, Honours Degree. An indispensible core to her studies was a rigorous, three-year clinical training program, at the University’s walk-in Polyclinic and the successful achievement in her final viva-exam, chaired by a UK qualified GP, in clinical diagnosis and natural plant treatments. As a result she is one of a small group of medical professionals in the country allowed to diagnose, formulate and dispense botanical medicines to qualified patients.

During this time Claudia’s interest in pharmacology and conventional drug development grew, and she was awarded a bursary/studentship by the world-renowned Guy's, King's and St Thomas School of Biomedical & Health Sciences, Department of Pharmacology & Therapeutics, to study for a Masters Degree at King’s College London in Drug Discovery. Her studies were funded by a major, UK based, medicine research company, where she worked at their Immunopharmacology Department to study the expression of cytokines in Rheumatoid Disease. Claudia was subsequently awarded a Masters Degree, with Merit, in Drug Discovery, and continues to have a strong professional interest in Immunology and Virology.

Claudia thereafter continued her studies for a second Masters Degree at King’s College London in the Department for Nutrition and Dietetics, where she developed a strong interest in Obesity, Weight Management and Allergies.

Since then she has furthered her professional development at UCL and Leeds University, the latter through a British Dietetic Association approved course in Clinical Nutrition.

Claudia also undertook postgraduate research into Allergic Diseases at the School for Professional Development at Imperial College London, where she focused on Allergic Gastrointestinal, Respiratory and Skin Disease.

Claudia has also completed a postgraduate research course at King's College London in Advanced Dermatology Practice.

Her Natural Phytomedicine Skin Clinic in London

Claudia runs a very busy private clinic from the world renowned Harley Street in London, just minutes from Oxford Circus. She will see self-referred, private patients i.e. without a referral from a medical professional.

Years of scientific laboratory practice in academia and medical research, involving pharmacology, human nutrition and botanical medicine, together with her practical clinical knowledge, are incorporated in her own practice and make her a renowned and leading health scientist and contemporary practitioner.

Her immense knowledge of natural plant precursors to conventional drugs and the effects on these on the human body enables her, to prescribe, formulate and dispense botanical medicines to her patients.

Claudia’s background as a pharmacologist enables her to advise patients of potential interactions between plant based and allopathic medicines, as well as on the side-effects of conventional medicines alone, which makes Claudia a unique practitioner in her field, able to cross over and bring together the boundaries of natural and conventional medication to the benefit of her patients.

Claudia uses the latest diagnostic tools and laboratory tests to develop a comprehensive understanding of the health status of each patient prior formulating any external and/or internal remedies or customised diets. Claudia uses the same tools to monitor and support each patient throughout their treatment and/or diet programme. Claudia is very pleased and well accustomed to communicating with the patients' GP or other health-specialist, if this is required.

Please note that her’s is a private natural health and skincare clinic and as such, her services are not covered by the NHS.

Some private international medical insurances will reimburse Claudia Louch’s fees for medical problems (please contact your insurer for guidance). However some purely UK-based private insurances, might not cover her services. Feel free to contact her for inquiries.

As Claudia will see self-referred, private patients, she can, at the patient’s discretion, keep the latter’s GP informed of any diagnosis, test results or treatment, unless specifically requested, not to do so.
