[Scientific session research presentation] Despite an increasing body of research examining efficacy of specific herbs for specific conditions, significant gaps in knowledge about why individuals use herbs and what they use them for remain. This study will present the preliminary results of consumer reported effectiveness of the use of herbs to treat various health conditions. The findings are part of a larger study examining the use and perceived effectiveness of herbs by U.S. adults. This secondary data analysis using the NHIS 2002 and its Alternative Health Module used logistic regression and structural equation modeling to examine the effects of reasons for herb use on herb utilization, the most common conditions individuals sought to treat with herbs, and their reported effectiveness of herbs in helping treat those conditions. Preliminary findings suggest that the majority of individuals use herbs to treat common non-acute, and chronic conditions, and the majority of users report herbs as helpful in improving their condition.
