New! National Health Survey
There is new data about Americans’ use of natural products and mind and body practices. Every 5 years our Center partners with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics to administer a complementary health questionnaire as part of the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), in which tens of thousands of Americans are interviewed about their health- and illness-related experiences. These new data come from the 2012 NHIS survey, and it is the most current and comprehensive source of information on the use of complementary approaches by adults and children in this country.
Integrative and complementary practices are often grouped into broad categories. Some practices may fit into more than one category. You can read about this at the NCCIH website.
