Editorial Policy for Native Care

Our Mission
Our mission is to create a platform for doctors and patients that is trustworthy and easily accessible by everyone.

We aim to bring you the most purposeful, trustworthy, and accurate health information. We ensure that the content published here is practical and relevant to your health questions and concerns. We understand that human health is a complex state of well-being and not merely the absence of illness or disease. Hence, patients need to be connected to different forms of medicine to foster wellness. Educating people about naturopathic medicine, with its unique principles and practices, can empower them to achieve and maintain optimal lifelong health.

Complementary or alternative medicine is a broad set of traditional practices that are not fully integrated into the dominant healthcare. They are used in the maintenance of health and prevention, improvement, and treatment of various physical and mental illnesses.

Health Information That You Can Trust!
We are determined and committed to providing health information on various health topics. We bridge the gap between innumerable insightful medical knowledge and the readers looking for easy-to-read content.

iCliniq's Diversity Policy
Our tent is open to everyone. We take care to be conscious and address issues that apply to people of different ages, ethnicities, gender identities, and sexual orientations. We produce content for a global audience even with a lay understanding of health information.

iCliniq's Text Policy
Are you looking for articles in naturopathy that combine traditional practices and modern evidence-based medicine? Naturopathic principles vary widely and are difficult to generalize. The ideology and methods of naturopathy are based on vitalism and folk medicine rather than evidence-based medicine. Our articles are chosen based on their relevance, clinical significance, and emerging health trends. Our content is more reliable and stands out in a medium often accused of providing outdated and inaccurate information.

Having any health concern or severe illness is scary, especially before you get diagnosed. You have a million questions, and the information you get here does not need to freak you more than you already are. We provide information in simple language and avoid using unnecessary technical terms to make them more understandable and reader-friendly. They are easily accessible, actionable, and fact-checked by qualified experts in the relevant field. We adhere to a process that maintains the highest editorial and ethical standards throughout this process.

iCliniq's Privacy Policy
We maintain strict privacy policies and protect the personal data, photos, reports, etc., shared by our patients. We are compliant with GDPR (general data protection regulation) and HIPAA (health insurance portability and accountability act). GDPR and HIPAA rules help protect your privacy and regulate how your personal information is protected from unauthorized people.

We do not discriminate against our patients based on their illnesses. iCliniq encourages more people to open up about their health conditions, so we can help them live a better and healthy life.

Content Creation Process
We use an established editorial process developed by the iCliniq team to ensure we are giving you the best possible information. It is the backbone of everything we do. Our medical content team holds regular meetings to discuss and plan the content requirements for the website. They dive deep into the latest information in leading medical journals and announcements from health agencies and government bodies to social media health trends and issues affecting our readers' day-to-day lives. We also include success stories of our clients unique to our website.

Who Are the Content Creators?
We have more than 700 doctors across 6 specialties who evaluate all the content and give personalized medical advice to patients. iCliniq also has a team of in-house doctors and experts in alternative naturopathic medicine. They make sure that the content posted here is trustworthy and up-to-date.

As mentioned before, iCliniq's content is reviewed and updated by medical doctors skilled in medical editing and writing.

The medical question and answers (Q/A) displayed on the site are the actual conversations between the iCliniq's doctors and users. The users' medical reports, images, and lab tests are secured and shared with no one except the iCliniq doctor they consult. We remove all the personally identifiable information such as the patient's name, location, nationality, religion, race, and all other information that can be traced back to the user to protect our user's privacy.

You also can notice that all of our latest content includes a source from where the information is gathered, and we regularly update them.

How Is the Medical Information Reviewed and Proofread?
We are committed to bringing unbiased, comprehensive, honest, and prompt information that helps our patients take necessary actions. Our in-house medical doctors and expert writers curate our content, and all those information are reviewed by medical doctors (depending on the specialty)

We work hard to keep our content updated by identifying articles and Q/A that need to be reviewed and assigning them to be revamped by our reviewers.

We receive feedback from the hundreds of doctors onboard about articles that require immediate review based on recent changes in medical practice. In addition, our in-house Medical Quality Assurance Analyst constantly monitors announcements by Government bodies, peer-reviewed literature, and new guidelines provided by reputed societies regarding the vital changes in medical care.

Two doctors review every article (a specialist in naturopathic medicine writes an article, and another medical specialist reviews it). We display the writer and reviewer names in every article and the date it was published and last reviewed.

Verified Data Sources and References
We have a zero-tolerance policy regarding plagiarism or ill-disposed intent from our writers. We strictly adhere to these standards-

All the statistical data and studies are collected from reputable journals or academic associations.

Recent information about new drugs, treatment options, or procedures is updated regularly. All medical terms and abbreviations are explained.
