The SORT (Strength of Recommendation Taxonomy) method is an incredibly reliable approach for providing evidence-based ratings and grading. By using this method, health care providers can ensure the highest level of evidence grading as well as potential harms associated with the given treatment. Integrative medicine is becoming increasingly popular, and through the use of SORT, health care providers can stay up to date on the latest trends by understanding how integrative modalities work and how best to utilize them for their patients' benefit. SORT is a reliable and practical way to ensure the best possible health care outcomes.
