Resources, references, etc...

Hi Everyone,

Considering I work for 3 online schools, I tend to spend a lot of time on the internet. I love it. Information is literally at my fingertips--and considering that I am a bit of an information junkie—I am in heaven :). Naturally, I become acquainted with many resources throughout my day. I thought it would be cool to share some with you all. This week I’d like to share some useful CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine) websites. According to the NCCAM (National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine), approximately 38 percent of US adults use some form of CAM. Considering this interesting tidbit—I thought it would be important to share sites where folks can get reliable information about CAM. First one up is the NIH dietary supplement fact sheets website. One can find comprehensive information about many different vitamins and supplements here: Safety, indications, contraindications, food sources, etc:

In my book, whole food sources for vitamins are best, however, if you do need to supplement your diet--you will find the website above handy :).
