NATURAL MEDICINES (formerly NaturalStandard)

Clinicians in the community and other areas of practice are approached by many patients for questions on complementary and alternative medicines (CAM). High utilization herbs and supplements are popular topics. Confusion exists amongst healthcare professionals on the role of natural products in integrative care. The Natural Medicines/Natural Standard Continuing Education programs are aimed at addressing the evidence of benefit or lack thereof and safety concerns surrounding the use of various CAM herbs & supplements. For a listing of Continuing Education courses visit: https://naturalmedicines.therapeuticresearch.com/continuing-education.aspx

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
