FTC to Host September Workshop in Washington, DC, to Examine Advertising for Over-the-Counter Homeopathic Products
Thank you very much for the opportunity to "tell my story" on the use of homeopathy in my family and the excellent results we have garnered from being involved with the National Center for Homeopathy and its affiliated study groups. While I first was just curious in a small inexpensive tube of little sugar pills that had a Latin name and said " old sprained ankle pain", I found out about the history of homeopathy in earlier centuries, even in America. Then I was surprised to find several books on Homeopathy in our very small public library. Those explained the scientific mechanisms of homeopathy, along with detailed research and provings of each individual remedy, along with symptoms and remedy sources. This study has kept me enthralled for more than 20 years now. Our family is glad I stumbled on to this method of healing, studied it and put it into our lives. I am thrilled to be able to order the remedies we need easily and without regulatory snags and snafus. Some are also available at our local health food store, and while they are just a rack of little tubes with Latin names and small bylines of their keynote symptoms, surely they will turn on more people to the healing capacity and efficacy of Homeopathy.
