At Hydes we source raw herbs and herbal medicines worldwide in order to obtain the best quality and ensure supply in any season. We negotiate for the best price only when quality is assured by competing suppliers. We never reduce quality to achieve cost savings. Sometimes the supply and cost is effected by the buying power of large pharmaceutical companies who are increasingly using herbs. The cost of prescriptions, reflects the problems of growing, harvesting, drying and shipping the raw herb to us. and the considerable overheads involved in processing and maintaining adequate stocks of prepared tincture. Unlike many herbalists we manufacture our own high quality medicines to ensure a consistant quality and strength. Hydes medicines are unique and only available from us after a consultation. We do not supply other herbalists, third parties or retail outlets.

Specific investigations or test fees are charged additionally, e.g. Cholesterol, Food Intolerance, Urine, can be performed on-site during your visit.
