FTC to Host September Workshop in Washington, DC, to Examine Advertising for Over-the-Counter Homeopathic Products
I find homeopathic remedies an effective aid for myself, my family and my clients. Part of my Board Certified Naturopathic Doctor exam certification was homeopathic remedies, but I had know about them before that thru educational study. With the tremendous problems with drugs, the hospital system and invasive surgery (over 100,000 people die due to mistakes in this industry) I find homeopathic remedies not only effective but with little or no dosage risk. Even for simple things such as poison ivy (Ruthtox) they are very effective. As a child I suffered greatly from poison ivy, but with the usage of Ruthtox I no longer have this problem and can use it to develop immunity at the beginning of the summer or after exposure. We purchase our remedies from Washington Homeopathic. Now we have to do it on-line, since their store in Berkley Springs, WV was closed. But the high quality still remains the same. With greater usage of homeopathic remedies we could stabilize health care costs and greatly reduce the usage of medication, which comes with side effects, which could in turn reduce overall medical costs. Here in the United States we pay the most for medical care that is just above Cuba!
