Q

How can I find information on nopalea that is not selling nopalea?

All the websites I find when I search are selling the product; how can I find impartial, factual information?

Hello. Sorry for the delayed response. We were closed all weekend.

I tried searching Google, and like you, found mostlu sales sites. You might want to try Google Scholar (link below). I found some relevant articles. Also try searching nopal, which is an alternative name.

If you go to our Databases by Subject LibGuide, also linked below, and click on the Nursing tab, you will find good databases. To access most of them you have to have a COM ID, and will be prompted to enter your last name and ID number. If you don't have a COM ID number, you can use the databases in the box that says free databases.


I'm also including a link to EBSCO: Health Source Consumer Edition and to Natural and Alternative Medicine. Again, you will have to have an ID to access these.

I also included a link from the National Library of Medicine to non-manufacturer, scientific research, that you can access freely.

Hope this helps. Let us know if we can do anything else.
