A new searchable tool called Health Elements is being created to provide information to clinicians to support the use of integrative medicine-including the use of dietary supplements.

The joint venture was created by supplements brand Thorne Research and Integrative Health Resources, a provider of educational materials to healthcare professionals and consumers on natural therapeutics and integrative medicine.

The portal, which will be made available later this year, will be a searchable tool that allows healthcare practitioners to access the latest scientific research and news about options in integrative medicine, as well as dosing, drug interaction, and other relevant issues. It will also feature a catalog of Thorne Research’s dietary supplements and product line.

“For both patients and clinicians, the demand to incorporate integrative medicine in healthcare is growing exponentially in the U.S. Health Elements will provide medical practitioners with all of the support and services they need to expand their integrative health expertise within their practice,” says Jim LaValle, founder of Integrative Health Resources.
