A sufferer writes I wish I had come sooner! (full name given)
After 2 years of conventional treatment for a problem with red, itchy, peeling hands, I visited Hyde’s herbal Clinic and had a consultation with Ruth Austin. I was prescribed ointment which cleared up the problem in just 2 weeks. Ruth diagnosed a possible fungal infection after touching a teasel plant in the garden. This is the second time (with a gap of 30 years) that treatment with Hyde’s has solved problems which conventional treatment (including 10 years of antibiotics for acne) hasn’t managed to help. Each problem I had was diagnosed and treated in a short space of time. It was certainly a case of “I wish I had gone sooner”. I am not sure what it is used in medicines and ointments but just am amazed with the miracle of herbal treatment. Long may it continue!
I cannot say how delighted I am and will make sure I always have some ointment in stock. .

RA writes
Previous to my meeting with Ruth at Hyde’s, I had been seen by various GP’s and dermatologists at hospitals concerning sores and severe itching resulting in quite a large area across my shoulders and arms being almost open wounds! But they could not come up with a solution despite various creams, washes and skin treatments!! Ruth prescribed me ointments and medicines, within a week my skin started to improve. First the itching stopped and then the sores began to heal up as well, it was such a relief to finally get it all sorted out even to the extent of everything healing and no irritation, occasionally I get the odd tiny spot but as it appears it gets ointment put on straight away and within two days it has completely healed up. I call it my ‘Life saver’ Ointment as it truly has, I was beginning to despair at ever getting my skin healed, Ruth is such a lovely, friendly and professional person I would recommend her to anyone for treatment.
Thank you so much!

A patient wrote in 2017: My only regret is that I didn’t come sooner
I have noticed that my chin acne has reduced significantly, I have only 1 or 2 spots now, whereas before my chin was really bad. My back is totally clear now. The medicine seems to be working very well indeed. I can’t believe it really as my skin is so clear; I have better skin now than I did when I was on Roacucutane! My only regret is that I didn’t come to see you sooner. I am so happy with the results so far.
