The world of complementary and integrative medicine can be very confusing. How does one know if a particularly therapy is safe, effective and right for them? How does one find a reputable center or provider? And a special bonus, where might one find FREE resources to begin using right away to meet your unique need? The following three websites address each of these questions in their own unique way and are available at your fingertips.
MedlinePlus is the National Institutes of Health’s Web site for patients and their families and friends. Produced by the National Library of Medicine, it brings you information about diseases, conditions, and wellness issues in language you can understand. MedlinePlus offers reliable, up-to-date health information, anytime, anywhere, for free. You can use MedlinePlus to learn about the latest treatments, look up information on a drug or supplement, find out the meanings of words, or view medical videos or illustrations. You can also get links to the latest medical research on your topic or find out about clinical trials on a disease or condition.
Mindbody Online (formerly Jill’s List) manages a network of patients, practitioners and corporate clients focused on health and wellness. It helps users connect with, learn from and help one another. They believe that healthcare should be comprehensive and we provide solutions so that doctors, patients, employees and CAM practitioners can understand and access a broader suite of healthcare and payment options. This site does not make recommendations. It has created a space where our users can honestly comment on their experiences and share information about their practices and product.
Healthy Journeys produces our gentle, but powerful, guided imagery programs. Kaiser Permanente doesn’t provide transcripts for these programs because the reading voice — its softness and pace — is key to their success. Some of topics featured include allergies, cancer, coping, grief, fatigue, insomnia, pain, anxiety and depression and PTSD. Best of all, they’re free to listen or download to your mP3 player or computer. Click on the “Health & Wellness” tab on our website, then “Programs & Classes,” and finally click on the second selection under “Look, Listen & Learn.”
