HYDES UPDATE- 21st October 2023.........
Hydes is open today despite a few issue getting in past Storm Babet and its floods we hope you are all faring just as well !
Anna Lisa Creaco is settling in well as a solid general Herbalist and theres a healthy rapor between the 3 professional herbalists when discussing health issues
and the latest research findings. Anna Lisa is also our
technical lead on the human biome and its implications for our health. If you havnt heard of that yet you soon will as mainstream medicine is becoming very interested in healthy diet,
not just for all the usual reasons, but because research shows its key to controlling a lot of medical conditins and maintaining it in healthy balance is key to a lot of preventative
practice medicine. Its a subject thats getting the medical scientists very excited. If you want to know more phone up and have a chat at the usual times.
As its now coming into the colder months please make a good check of your general health and be sure to enter the darker nights in good shape. Athsma and allergies can flare up a bit with the damper
days and autumn moulds, so keep an eye on yourself. Ruth, Anna Lisa and I, and the clinic team, always look forward to seeing and hearing from you whenever you want to speak with us so
don’t worry and just call when you want to. You, and we, will deal with everything life throws at us
Wishing the best of health to you all

Hydes Medical Herbalists;
combine a thorough understanding of Medical Immunology and Medical Science with Medical Herbalism.
Hydes Medical Herbalists
work within strict ethical and professional codes belonging to both
National Institute of Medical Herbalists (NIMH)
and also the
College of Practitioners of
Hydes Herbal Clinic Leicester was founded in 1908 by Jesse Hyde, expanded by his son Fletcher in the 1940s, and developed further by his grandson John Hyde into the clinic we see today.
He mentored my professional training and I worked with him for several years until his retirement in 2003 when I took over running the 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 survived 2 World Wars and the creation of the NHS, keeping Herbal Medicine alive and learning from over 150,000 cases.
Orthodox medicine and the UK’s leading universities increasingly recognise the role of Medical
Herbalists and the importance of Herbal Medicine. Research better understands how
plant medicines work can rely less on folklore or tradition. We now often consult with a patient's GP or Consultant, although only
with 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.
First designed by Hydes in the 1940s, we have perfected it ever since. Herbs are combined into formulations which we have developed and used many times before.
These are only available from Hydes. Our dispensing staff will prepare a personal prescription uniquely tailored to you;
a bespoke method which over time we have found produces the optimum result for our patients.
Hydes supports regulation of the Medical Herbalists profession working 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.
Our clinic motto is:
“To increase the sum
of human happiness by the relief of suffering through safe and natural
