Consultations with naturopaths/herbalists and use of supplements/herbal medicines amongst Australian women, 2006-2016
The naturopathy and herbalist professions have been going through numerous changes over recent years. In addition, supplements and herbal medicines have doubled over the last 10 years, and women are the top consumers of such products in Australia. It is worth noting that there has been an increased ability of consumers to purchase these products beyond practitioners, such as online shopping, health food stores, and pharmacies. As such, this longitudinal study aims to examine the changes over time in consultations with naturopaths/herbalists and use of vitamin/minerals and herbal medicines amongst Australian women.
