Our clinic was founded in 1908 by Jesse Hyde and expanded by his son Fletcher in the 1940s and developed further by his son John Hyde into the clinic we see today.
I completed my professional training with John and worked with him for several years until his retirement in 2003 when I took over running the clinic.

Medical Immunology and Medical Science with Medical Herbalism.
Hydes Medical Herbalists Clinic
In continual practice since 1908 Hydes Medical Herbalists see patients
from all over the UK, each with their own unique case history and prescription.
Hydes Medical Herbalists survived 2 World Wars and the creation of the NHS.
Hydes kept Herbal Medicine alive learning from over 130,000 cases.
Orthodox medicine and the UK’s leading universities increasingly recognise the role of Medical
Herbalists and the importance of Herbal Medicine. Continuing research more accurately understands how
plant medicines work with certain diseases and Medical Herbalists rely less on folklore or tradition.
Your consultation with Hydes is confidential. However we often consult with a patient's GP, Consultant or any other person, if that is your wish and only
having obtained your clear permission to do so.
A major and unique strength of Hydes is that we produce almost all of our own herbal medicines onsite from raw herb in a process involving many weeks of maturation.
This is a process Hydes first designed in the 1940s, and have perfected ever since which means that our medicines are unique and only available from Hydes.
Where herbs are combined it is to recipees we have developed over the years and used many times before.
We do not make these medicines available for retail sale and you can only obtain them from us.
Our dispensing staff prepare your personal prescription, as specifically tailored to you by our Medical Herbalists.
Over time we have found that this method produces the optimum result for our patients.
Hydes supports regulation of the Medical Herbalists profession and works closely with the
European Herbal and Traditional Medicine
Practitioners Association (EHTMPA) and also with the
British Herbal Medicine
who in 2007 gave Hydes Herbal Clinic its
rarely granted Lifetime Achievement Award recognising Hydes service to Herbal Medicine and Medical Herbalists
as a Professional body.
For Medical Herbalists at Hydes,
this is not a job but a calling.
