A healthy attitude
Good health is not only based on your genes, it is primarily our own responsibility. These days, more and more people share this conviction. They are taking their health into their own hands to counteract the harmful consequences of daily stress, lack of exercise and poor nutrition.
Traditional herbal medicine can help with these aspirations, offering a true treasure trove of preparations and recipes that are gentle to use and have very few side effects. Herbal medicine is suitable for self-treatment and is ideal for preventative health care.
Even academic medical practitioners are rethinking phytotherapy. Many research institutes and universities are exploring new applications for traditional medicinal plants. After all, many modern pharmaceutical remedies actually originate from plants, for example aspirin, from an active ingredient in willow bark, or digoxin, from foxgloves (Digitalis).
We all can learn a lot from phytotherapy and it deserves our respect. That is why Dr.Dünner is passionately devoted to the cause of phytotherapy, as we act in harmony with mankind and nature. Because our health is our own responsibility.

How to recognise Dr.Dünner?
Our views encompass both naturopathic tradition and scientific modernity. We draw on the knowledge and experience of traditional European herbal medicine, which we can trace back to the monastic medical practices of mediaeval times. We are simultaneously guided by the newest scientific knowledge, taking into account the latest research findings and using modern and efficient production methods.
Even though they may harbour powerful forces, medicinal herbs are still only tender little plants. They need to be harvested with the greatest of care, and extreme caution must be taken in all subsequent steps of the preparatory process in order to conserve the precious compounds. At Dr.Dünner, the traditional knowledge of picking, drying and storage goes hand in hand with state-of-the-art technology and laboratory techniques.
We pursue our work with passion and dedication, focusing on the ideal of a healthy life in an intact, natural environment. We obtain our electricity from hydroelectric power plants in the Swiss Alps – 100% from renewable resources. We are also striving to achieve a CO2-neutral energy footprint, so that we can do our bit as a company to help protect the Earth’s climate.
