FTC to Host September Workshop in Washington, DC, to Examine Advertising for Over-the-Counter Homeopathic Products
Homeopathic medicines have changed my family's life. I was introduced to them a few years ago after suffering from plantar fasciitis for two years. I started taking homeopathic medicine because traditional medicine (that I might add made me sick (Prednisone) did not work. I went to PT along with other methods of tx and nothing worked. I started taking Ruta Grava and Rhus Tox and within two days I could walk again almost pain free. Needless to say I was irritated at that point with all the money I had spent in traditional medicine that could have been used to take care of my family and got no where. My dog has even benefited from it. She had a high fever do to a infection and I gave her Belladonna and it saved her life. After a few doses it lowered her fever to the point that is was safe. The government needs to wake up and stop spoon feeding the drug companies and medical professionals (I work in the traditional healthcare field) and realize that we need to get back to basics and stop destroying our world and our bodies with non natural substances to pad the pockets of everyone. HOMEOPATHY WORKS, DO NOT TAKE IT AWAY FROM THE PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IN IT AND HAVE PROOF IT WORKS, I THOUGHT THIS WAS A FREE COUNTRY WITH RIGHTS?
