FTC to Host September Workshop in Washington, DC, to Examine Advertising for Over-the-Counter Homeopathic Products
As a healthcare professional I learned of Homeopathy when the H1N1 Flu was a pandemic concern. I have used and recommended Homeopathic Remedies many times with excellent results and most importantly no apparent side effects. The literature available on these remedies is incredibly insightful and useful even to lay people. Clearly anything can be misrepresented and abused. With it's safety record the likelihood of serious side effects is minimal and with the availability of supportive literature it is not difficult to become an educated consumer. I strongly believe that this treatment is beneficial, safe and practical for general consumers and appreciate the FTCs position in assuring products are used wisely and safely.
