Botanical medicine is a form of medicine using plant materials. Herbs have been used across cultures for centuries as the primary form of medicine. Pharmaceuticals are often derived and synthesized from single plant constituents.
Dr. Jennifer uses botanical medicine in the form of tinctures (liquid extracts of herbs), supplements, teas, oils, creams and ointments. Botanical medicine has proven to be effective for a vast array of health concerns from a runny nose to high blood pressure.
It is very important to remember that even herbs can have potential side effects and may interact with conventional medicines. As a Naturopathic Doctor, Dr. Vidmar is extensively trained and qualified to recognize these interactions and prescribe botanical medicine in a safe personalized prescription for your specific needs.
