Using Herbs and Supplements Safely and Effectively

     More and more people are using natural health products. Unfortunately, there are few sources of information that can be relied upon to help choose products that will be effective and safe. Many people use natural health products together with pharmaceutical drugs and do not feel comfortable discussing this with their physician. Most physicians, in any case, are not familiar with the use of natural health products. The information provided by companies selling natural health products is too often inaccurate or exaggerated.

     This course will help you gain the knowledge you need to choose natural health products -- herbs, vitamins, and other supplements -- that can be used safely and that will be effective for you. In the course, we will cover the basics of nutritional supplements like essential fatty acids and vitamins, herbs for common ailments, and special supplements like glucosamine and melatonin. Whether you already take a number of supplements and want to know if you're getting the best bang for your buck, or if you lack the confidence to begin using supplements to improve your health, this is the course for you!
