Database Highlight: Natural Standard database

The Natural Standard database, founded by clinicians and researchers, provides high quality, evidence-based information about complementary and alternative therapies to clinicians, patients, and healthcare institutions. The Natural Standard database provides information on herbs & supplements, conditions, alternative modalities and includes a dictionary. Comprehensive, evidence-based monographs are available for each therapy containing information on scientific evidence, theory, dosing, safety and interactions.

The international research team utilizes a comprehensive methodology and grading scales to create the evidence-based, consensus-based, and peer-reviewed monographs. They regularly monitor scientific literature and industry warnings. When clinically relevant new data emerge, best efforts are made to update content immediately. In addition, regular updates with renewed searches occur every 3-18 months, variable by topic.

FYI:
You can find this database under 'All Major Resources A-Z' from the Medical Library's home page.

Natural Standard is ok, but a bit incomplete. I haven't been able to find several of the topics I've been looking for. I prefer Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database (www.naturaldatabase.com).
