FTC to Host September Workshop in Washington, DC, to Examine Advertising for Over-the-Counter Homeopathic Products
I take a homeopathic formula every night I wake up in the middle of the night. I have no after effects from it in the morning, as opposed to many prescribed sleeping pills. For the flu, I take the best selling formula in France, Oscillcum which always works and cold calm with the onset of a cold. I have gone to homeopaths for specific ailments & taken what they recommend. I take arnica for muscle strains. I take nox vomica also for its calming effects occasionally. I also take blood pressure pills & statins, so I also believe in both traditional & "alternative" medicine. Homeopathic remedies, on the most part, do not interfere with any other medicine one is taking. They are very inexpensive & when traveling I notice they are always available in the drug stores in Europe. Research recommendation: The use of homeopathic remedies for detoxing in prison populations. I read some research articles about Indian doctors who have used them with great success.
