Patient Sites & Blogs

PatientsSimilar to online health forums, patient websites and blogs don’t always contain the most reliable health information. However, they do offer the patient perspective which is vital for anyone who is trying to navigate the health care system. In addition, when patients have a real interest and passion for natural healing, the content can be rich with healthy advice.
