FTC to Host September Workshop in Washington, DC, to Examine Advertising for Over-the-Counter Homeopathic Products
I bought a bottle of Teething Tabs at walmart. I was looking for a way to ease my baby's teething discomforts at night without giving him tylonal or ibuprofen. After reading the ingredients and doing minimal research, I gave the tabs to my baby and was astonished at how fast they worked. I then started a much more in depth study of homeopathy in general in the hopes of learning why it works so well and yet is not widely used by the medical community. I have been studying homeopathy for 9 months now and find it to be far safer than the treatments generally used by the medical community. The classes I have been taking still have not answered all my questions, but it has made me feel safe in using it to treat everyday ailments of myself and my family. I believe that more should be done to promote homeopathy in our society.
