Thanks for this undertaking. I would be interested in your sources for evidence based studies on herbals. 2 that come to mind are tumeric (for djd, which I believe is the number 1 condition for which pts purchase herbals) and apple cider vinegar which in my area, Pittsburgh, is like the "gabapentin" of herbals, used for almost anything. Thanks again.

Thanks so much for your feedback. I'm sharing it directly with Steve and Tom (who is from Pittsburgh!). We love these topic suggestions.

Heather W. -

Not in regards to IBS or herbals, but to address other 'googled studies and questions,' I am curious if any new evidence has been studied or reviewed in the usage of topical NSAIDs in CKD/ESRD, gastritis/PUD or in children (ie in 'growing pains'), and the safety or efficacy in usage in these populations, as well as how much is actually systemically absorbed.
