FTC to Host September Workshop in Washington, DC, to Examine Advertising for Over-the-Counter Homeopathic Products
I initially learned about homeopathy from a radio show, then later read books & attended courses. My initial purchases of homeopathic remedies were based on product labels, where I did see some efficacy. Subsequent to my studies all purchases have been based on my education & reference materials. Reading a book called "Who is Your Doctor and Why" written by a Boston MD it was hard to believe the results described. This book launched me into in-depth study. As a good scientist I put it to the test both academically & in practice. Needless to say I verified the efficacy & power of the phenomena that is emphasized by the potentized micro dose. While it can often be challenging to find the correct remedy, when you do the results are nothing short of amazing. I can't imagine being without this system of healing which I have used to help my immediate & extended family for over 20 years. Having access to OTC remedies has been essential to the health & well-being of my family. Homeopathy is a complete system of medicine that was developed by Samuel Hahnemann from many years of experimentation (spurred by historical records, personal observations and his degrees in Chemistry & Medicine). The second book I read was his first treaties on the subject after about ten years of research. The Organon of Medicine (6th ed) is a must read for any technical person that does not like filtered or interpreted information. There are many other good books on the subject but to introduce you to another good author (although a bit outdated regarding the latest research) read "Homeopathic Science and Modern Medicine - The Physics of Healing With Microdoses" by Harris L. Coulter, PhD. There is no other system of medicine that can demonstrate efficacy on such a large percentage of people, has simple consistent principles, works equally on both animals and plants, and addresses acute, chronic and prophylactic situations. The micro doses certainly make the remedies very safe to use. There are thousands of books and online articles readily available on homeopathy for all levels of interest, so the consumer is both educated & safe with OTC preparations. Samuel Hahnemann is the Leonardo da Vinci of medicine, but who still to this day would be ahead of his time. Hopefully we catch up soon...
