Can you remember back to a time when you didn't have Google as a resource?
It's so easy to look up information, health-related or other, simply by doing a quick Internet search.
But, how do you know that the information you're reading (or watching) is accurate?
First, consider this: standard medicine is helpful for about 25 percent of all medical issues, primarily acute emergencies such as heart attacks and appendectomies. But, it's not so great when it comes to chronic issues, such as pain, fatigue or indigestion. With this in mind, you just need to know when to look and where.
There's a concept called "trusted sources." Unfortunately, some of these sources are exclusive to standard medicine and don't have information on natural remedies or, even worse, discount them.
Here are Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum's recommendations for sites that are best for each:
American Botanical Council
Cures A-Z (iPhone and Android App)
Life Extension Foundation
Tune in as Dr. Teitelbaum joins Lisa to discuss weeding through all of the health information online, as well as which sources you can trust to get accurate information.
