Be aware that there are many unsubstantiated claims about so-called "cures". The unregulated nature of the Internet sometimes makes it difficult to separate fact from fiction. I urge you to be cautious, and do everything you can to make sure the information you gather is credible.
The mission of the Institute for Natural Medicine (INM) is to assist in the dissemination of credible information about naturopathic philosophy and natural medicine to consumers, businesses, health care professions, governmental entities and educational institutions, through advancement of educational and research activities. It is the vision of INM to play a leading role in making available authoritative information in the field of natural health. NatureMed.org will meet the growing public demand for a reputable and easily accessible "one stop shop" resource that provides credible information to the general public about natural medicine approaches, evidence-based research, treatment goals and therapies of naturopathic medicine. The Institute for Natural Medicine is uniquely positioned and qualified to provide unbiased, evidence-based, and authoritative information concerning natural and preventive approaches to health.
