It's not possible to download individual QRDS at this time.
I am trying to figure out how to make the buttons connect to separate files instead of all of the buttons pointing to the same file
About the QRDS
Quick Reference Data Sheets™, QRDS hereafter, were created to put all essential information about a natural medicine in one place.
They are split into 6 sections, 5 of which you can see above. The omitted section is the chemical constituents. It has been left out of the online version because the majority of readers will not need it. It is included in the PDF.
QRDS are created from textbooks, scientific studies, a government database on natural plant materials and any other relevant resources.
The “Properties” section has the complete list of technical properties which may include some vague terms such as “pectoral”. Vague terms are included to help users assess personal risk of drug interactions with medications not listed on the QRDS.
If a medication affects the same area the risk of an interaction increases compared to a medication that affects a completely different area of the body.
Very rarely there will be a term with no definition available. Those have been left in the hope of finding an obscure reference so I could replace the word with a modern version if appropriate.
The QRDS are given freely for personal use only. Redistributing them in any form, free or otherwise, will result in legal action.
