Nutraceutical consulting to health professionals

The constant advances of science and the number of scientific publications in medicine raises the need for permanent updating of the health professional for decision making. Most doctors do not have the time necessary to read that large volume of information related to their area. Currently, one of the concerns of doctors and professionals of different health sciences is the difficulty to take advantage of the available scientific literature in its true magnitude.

Udana Inc. provides nutraceutical consulting to health professionals on the use of nutraceutical in support of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) and Integrative Medicine (IM) for the prevention and benefit of quality of life and the treatment of some diseases.

This scientific information is aimed at.

  • Doctors and other health care professionals.
  • People who need to know the updated scientific information to decide with their doctors the use of complementary, alternative, and integrative medicine for the prevention and treatment of various diseases.

There is increasing concern and interest to integrate complementary medicine with conventional medicine. Currently, the World Health Organization promotes the wise use of traditional, complementary and alternative medicine by consumers and suppliers.

Evidence-based medicine (EBM) is the conscientious, explicit and wise use of the best available evidence in making decisions about the care of individual patients. EBM is a tool used for health science professionals for making decisions in clinical practice. The application of EBM requires scientific rigor for critical evaluation of the validity and usefulness of the available information.

Integrative Medicine (IM) and Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine (EBCAM) are also the foundation of the applications for the care of individual patients by the conscious use of the best available evidence. For this reason, the scientific update information is the main tool for medical decision making. Many physicians who have been ttrained with the approach of conventional medicine do not know in depth all the contributions that can provide complementary treatments. Also, they do not have the time to update the large volume of scientific literature resulting from ongoing discoveries related to the nutraceutical and its impact on treatment. Health professionals and the public are underutilizing this valuable information, so it is necessary to provide tools that provide updated scientific knowledge.

Udana Inc. uses a methodology for the bibliographic search includes Critical Review, Systematic Reviews, and Results of Meta-analysis. The exhaustive, objective and reproducible search of original scientific publications on the subject are performed in electronic databases.

Analysis, interpretation of results, and conclusions are performed according to the results from scientific publications, reviews, clinical trials, meta-analyzes, and other sources.

Efficacy, Pharmacognosy aspects, and safety are approached to integrate information and determine the most viable applications.

The physicians and health professionals have access to information and advice from Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine about the properties of natural products and nutraceutical. This consulting activity would be a scientific approach to update information. However, we are all aware that research and scientific publications in this area are very wide and appears every month thousands of scientific articles published and therefore the reviewing on the subject will always be limited compared with the volume of literature.
