Natural Medicines

What is it? Natural medicines and integrative therapies have become a popular way to promote good health and quality of life. People count on clinicians to guide them toward safe, effective choices based on credible research.

Natural Medicines provides access the following:

  • Interaction Checker. Detect drug-supplement interactions before they happen.
  • Safety Ratings. Review practical, standardized safety ratings by route of administration.
  • Pregnancy & Lactation Checker. Explore safety ratings related to use during pregnancy and breast-feeding.
  • Nutrient Depletion Checker. See which nutrients are depleted by prescription or over-the-counter medications, and evaluate risks by their clinical significance.
  • Effectiveness Ranking. Compare natural medicines from most to least effective for certain conditions.
  • Commercial Products Database. Access the most comprehensive dataset of natural products available on the market to determine which products to recommend or avoid.
  • Printable Patient Handouts. Help educate patients with consumer-friendly handouts, available in English, Spanish, and French.
