Guidelines

The editorial staff is responsible for all of the content you find on our sites. We make every reasonable attempt to list sources at the bottom of every article containing a statement of medical fact, when such source is available. Therefore, if you read an article with no source it is generally due to the fact that no source was made available to us, but we found the article interesting enough to share with our readers.

We will report about research done on humans & animals. Please be advised that although animal research results should not unquestionably be applied to humans, such findings can further understanding of some subjects.

Nature’s Own Doctor will report on all treatments, including but not limited to, proven treatments, and experimental or alternative treatments Any treatments where medical doctors have given their opinion on questionable efficacy will be noted within the article.

Our expert writers have medical degrees, law degrees, public health degrees and master’s degrees in science.

We may link to outside web pages that relate to a source used to create our content or if they provide additional information that may be helpful.

Nature’s Own Doctor content will from time to time link to pages that sell drugs or supplements, or that recruit for participants for clinical trials or other research. These will be clearly marked to avoid confusion.

 

Quality Standards

Content is only published to the site after it has been reviewed and edited by our editorial team. All website content undergoes the same process.

Our editorial team edits content before it is published.

Our Medical Review Board, is composed of board-certified physicians, who periodically review articles and provide any necessary critique that will guarantee that our information is accurate.

The editorial team & Medical Review Board work together to evaluate existing content on a regular basis. Articles are assessed to ensure that a) they reflect current research and advice of health/wellness experts; b) they reflect current guidelines of organizations and government agencies, if applicable; c) they answer any new questions a reader may have as a result of changing times.

The editorial team collaborates with other Nature’s Own Doctor colleagues to ensure that every aspect of our sites is in line with our goals.

Writers

Licensed & Third-Party Content

Licensed or third-party content is carefully reviewed by the Nature’s Own Doctor editorial team to ensure that it is aligned with our policies and labeled to notify you of its source.

Advertising

Nature’s Own Doctor accepts advertising on its site(s) and maintains a separation between advertising and editorial content. Please see our Advertising Policy for full details on how advertisements and sponsored content are distinguished on our pages and the guidelines to which they must adhere.

Special attention is paid to featuring advertising in a way that will not interfere with your reading experience. This relates to both page design and the number of ads we choose to feature on a page.

Product Recommendations

The internet offers endless consumer choice, putting millions of products at your fingertips, and we want to do what we can to streamline the steps you need to take to find what you’re looking for quickly and reliably.

The expert writers and editors of Nature’s Own Doctor’s product review team help our users make the best purchase decisions by obsessively scouring the retail landscape (both online and off) to identify and research the best products for your healthy lifestyle and family. We receive an affiliate commission on some, but not all, of the products that we recommend if you decide to click through to the retailer site and make a purchase.

Trust: Our independent writers and testers pick products that are the best in their category and they do not know the terms of any of our affiliate partnerships, so you can be sure you are getting authentic and trustworthy recommendations. Furthermore, we buy all of the products that we test with our own money and never accept anything for free from manufacturers. We want to make sure we’re providing you with the most unbiased feedback that we can.

Product content: Curated lists of recommendations are written by writers with subject-matter expertise in every product category. Recommended products run the gamut from budget to splurge-worthy, and are not favored because of any loyalty to one specific retailer or brand. We make it a point to recommend products from reliable companies who deliver exemplary customer service, so you can have a seamless shopping experience. The availability of products is checked daily by a team of dedicated editors.

After a list is published, it is regularly revisited and updated, if needed, to ensure that existing recommendations are fresh, accurate, and helpful.

If you have questions, comments, or opinions you’d like to share with our product review team, please email support@naturesowndoctor.com.
