Effective Natural Medicine is an app that is all about self-help. The app gives you the ability to search, in an easily identifiable way, natural herbs and remedies you can use to help almost any kind of ailment. Alongside this, it allows you to catalog anything you’re taking and compare them so as to avoid any possible unintended side effects.
When reading the title, one immediately thinks of new age-y, hipster clichés of a myriad of snake oils promising to cure your disease, but thankfully this app is nothing of the sort. Nothing is being sold to you, nothing is fake or commercial. It is honestly, truly, offering you help with whatever condition you may have.
On opening the app, you are presented with clear, vibrant colors and a very short informational slide instructing how to search for a condition and favourite individual remedies. It informs you that, on favoriting a remedy, it will automatically check any remedies you search in future and inform you of any ill-effects or over-dosage.
This is an incredible help when using your own supplements, as it is so easy to find yourself accidentally mixing remedies that don’t react well together, or possibly do the same thing.

When selecting a condition from the list of seemingly endless ailments, you are presented with a whole host of information about the condition; not just basic descriptions, but actual detail about the workings of the condition and how it affects people.
