In-house Botanical Dispensary
Troy Naturopathic now has an in-house botanical dispensary. The botanical dispensary holds over 100 herbs in tincture, tea & essential oil form and is constantly growing in size to include a wider selection of herbs.
Dr. Dimpi customizes each tincture with an individualized dose and combination of herbs for each of her patients.
Q: What is a tincture?
A tincture is a crude plant (leaves, flowers, stem, root) extracted in grain alcohol.
Q: Why does Dr. Dimpi use tinctures in her practice?
Tinctures allow for 'whole food' liquid administration of botanical medicine & allow for Dr. Dimpi to easily customize individualized formulas for each of her patients.
Q: What is the difference between a tea & tincture?
A tea usually utilizes one or two parts of the plant in its dried form. A tincture usually utilizes the whole plant and because it is extracted in liquid form, a tincture can deliver 10 times greater potency than a tea.
Q: Are tinctures safe for children or during pregnancy?
Yes they are! Tinctures contain a comparable percentage of alcohol found in a fermented banana. And if the alcohol content is a concern you can add a tincture to any hot tea to vaporize the alcohol content.
