FTC to Host September Workshop in Washington, DC, to Examine Advertising for Over-the-Counter Homeopathic Products
I have been using homeopathy for 20yrs or so. My favorite is Arnica which is great for soft tissue swelling. I really don't remember when or how I came to it. I just know that God created these bodies to do marvelous things if we give it proper support. Homeopathy semms to do just that. My daughter used it after having her wisdom teeth removed. We never had to fill the scrip for Tylenol #3. That is a great thing today considering how much drug addiction is started by people taking narcotics when there is something much safer and probably even more effective. Fifteen yrs ago I did a partial tear of my medial meniscus and as well as my ACL. My knee swelled, I had to have an immobilizer and crutches. I took Arnica and Ruta Graveolens for the pain. It was great. Years ago I had a root canal done. Took a few doses of Arnica (refused the unnecessary steroids and Vioodan scrips and did great! Did not have the expense of time or $$$. Just went to the store and got what I know I needed. People need to know that it operates differently than allopathic medicine and needs to be respected as such. It is safe and affordable with little to no side effects.
