Herbal App


Alternative medicine continues to grow in popularity, with juicing, supplements, and acupuncture all gaining mainstream traction. It can be tough to navigate it all, so Memorial Sloan-Kettering’s new guide to natural therapies, “About Herbs,” is a welcome new app. Coming from the standpoint of a respected medical institution, its a refreshing encyclopedia on everything from the benefits of Chaga Mushrooms to Ginkgo, or Magnet Therapy to Tai Chi. Each has a “Professional” and “Consumer” description, giving both clinical summaries where available and understandable user benefits.
