rVita makes Integrative, Complementary, and Alternative Medicine (ICAM) treatment efficacy data for a variety of conditions available to users. In addition, rVita publishes links to relevant news articles and ICAM research which can be found on the web. rVita does this to help users find appropriate or potential treatments faster. rVita does not replace the health care practitioner. The information provided on rVita.com is designed to support, not replace, the relationship that exists between a site visitor and his/her health professional. We connect our registered users with Trusted Practitioners and/or integrative pharmacies for directed treatment. Content published on rVita.com is designed to aid users, not treat them. All our content is approved by an Integrative Medicine MD panel.
rVita is a free service created to publish information about which alternative therapies work, or not, for various medical conditions. As the leading Health 2.0 site for ICAM, we provide users with articles written by experts in the field, updates about the latest scientific trial information, the opportunity to submit questions to our experts, and even post treatment experiences or contribute to our research by rating the efficacy of treatment. In addition, to help users make more informed decisions about alternative medical treatments, we have developed our own rating system which evaluates the efficacy of various treatments based on available clinical data and from users’ experiences.
Our treatment efficacy data comes from Natural Standard, an organization founded by clinicians and researchers to provide high quality, evidence-based information about complementary and alternative therapies. Our community of users helps us build a knowledgebase with their treatment experiences. This complements the Natural Standard data with first-hand user data that will help our users make better informed treatment choices. There a lot of trial and error when consumers turn to alternative medicine. Our content and rating systems increase the probability of finding efficacious treatment.
