FTC to Host September Workshop in Washington, DC, to Examine Advertising for Over-the-Counter Homeopathic Products
I am 73 and have traveled all over the world. The U.S. is the only country that continues to oppose homeopathy. Our founding fathers used homeopathy. This country needs to walk its talk. Aren't we all created equal with choice.....please stop trying to take that away. Homeopathy has been of primary significance to me and my family. I am so grateful to the classically trained homeopaths who have worked long and hard at maintaining this avenue for all of us. It has been the only method that has brought clean honest health to me without any side effects. I have found the medical model to be ignorant about homeopathy. One must educate themselves because homeopathy gets to the real causes, at least it has for me. Being able to buy it OTC is so significant. Good grief, after all no one is making meth out of it. Please allow real homeopaths to be the biggest part of decisions about this. They are the only ones who know what is true when it comes to homeopathic products. Plus if any OTC product doesn't work no one buys it again. No matter what it is. So if people are buying these products they are working. It is just like anything when use correctly. It works. I have 2 or 3 OTC allergy products that haven't worked for me but I presume they do for someone. I found a homeopathic remedy that worked. I want the right to pick and choose as I see fit for my own health. Should I be asking you to go after those OTC allergy products that didn't deliver what they promised?
