NaturalStandard is now Natural Medicines

NaturalStandard has changed names and is now called NATURAL MEDICINES. The NATURAL MEDICINES web interface also has a new look but includes the same authoritative, evidence-based information on foods, dietary supplements, herbs, natural medicines and integrative therapies. Monograph sections include interactions, adverse effects, allergies, efficacy, pregnancy/lactation data and mechanism of action. English, French & Spanish Patient Handouts are available.

Patients spend over $58 billion dollars annually on natural products and alternative modalities (e.g., chiropractic, acupuncture, yoga). Over 50% of patients take supplements. Over 37% of hospitals now offer alternative medicine services. ~ Natural Medicine’s Integrative Medicine Newsletter, February 12, 2015
