Database Spotlight: Natural Standard
Have questions about herbs, supplements, or complementary medicine?
VCU Libraries provides access to a database that may answer your questions. Natural Standard: The Authority on Integrative Medicine was founded by healthcare providers and researchers to provide high-quality, evidence-based information about complementary and alternative therapies.
In addition to systematic reviews on foods, herbs & supplements, the health care professional will find Natural Standard monographs on a variety of other topics including Health & Wellness, Medical Conditions, Sports Medicine, Genomics & Proteomics, Environment & Global Health, and Animal Health.
Abbreviated reviews (Natural Standard's Bottom Line Monographs) on most of the topics above are designed for use by both patients or health professionals. Topical Flashcards provide a quick look-up or patient handout written at an easy reading level for consumers.
Natural Standard can be found in VCU Libraries' Databases A-Z under the letter 'N.'
