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. Patient utilization of natural medicine is increasing regardless of whether or not healthcare providers recommend these therapies. By educating today and tomorrow’s healthcare professionals we can reduce provider liability, effectively document patients use of alternative medicine, and improve overall health outcomes.
Natural Standard offers quick access to comprehensive, evidence-based, peer-reviewed information on foods, herbs, supplements and natural therapies. Monograph sections include interactions, adverse effects, allergies, efficacy, pregnancy/lactation data and mechanism of action. English, French & Spanish Patient Handouts are available.
