The launch of Natural Medicine Ratings on Consumer Reports Medical Guide is a collaborative effort with Therapeutic Research Center to adapt and utilize the professional version of its Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database into a consumer-friendly format. The professional version is currently used by pharmacists, researchers, and doctors, who consult it for evidence-based information on natural medicines. The new Natural Medicine Ratings add another valuable dimension to Consumer Reports Medical Guide’s expansive content, including safety and effectiveness of treatments for over 100 health conditions, more than 1000 prescription drug monographs, the latest drug safety alerts and continuously updated free health information. Consumers can search by any product ingredient, brand name, or get ratings for effectiveness by condition; and check interactions between drugs and natural medicines with the Natural Medicine/Drug Interaction Checker. Information about the safety of natural medicines for children, seniors and women who are pregnant or nursing is also available.
