FTC to Host September Workshop in Washington, DC, to Examine Advertising for Over-the-Counter Homeopathic Products
I have been purchasing and using homeopathic OTC products for the last 20 years. There are many available resources in print and on the internet for determining what homeopathic products may be helpful. I tend to rely almost none on advertising to determine which homeopathic products to buy and use because of the wealth of literature available on homeopathic remedies and their indications. I purchased a simple and straightforward book (Everybody's Guide to Homeopathic Medicines) and have used it effectively in selecting products. I find the products I look for are well marked and clearly labeled so that I know I am getting the product I am looking for. Purchasing homeopathic remedies has been the most critical piece of our family wellness practice for the last 20 years. We have saved many sick days and visits to doctors by taking care of our own self limiting conditions. We have saved a great deal of money and body burden by reducing exposure to pharmaceuticals including antibiotics and have kept the environment free from impacts from these chemicals as well. National Center for Homeopathy has a wealth of information on the website (www.homeopathycenter.org) and many articles explaining specifics about homeopathy, as well as details about research into homeopathy and applicable nano-medicine articles.
