FTC to Host September Workshop in Washington, DC, to Examine Advertising for Over-the-Counter Homeopathic Products
I often buy homeopathic remedies at the grocery store. I have found the combination remedies to be useful when you are not sure which remedy would be best. I find that homeopathic medicines have helped my family use less antibiotics, NSAIDs and other over the counter medicine. They have helped us get better quickly with no side effects.By seeing a homeopath we have healed from condition that a conventional doctor has nothing to offer for except suppression of symptoms. My daughter stopped getting carsick within a month of being treated by a homeopath, she also no longer has chronic coughs that last all winter. My other daughter no longer gets migraines nor chronic stomach aches. I no longer suffer from anxiety nor seasonal allergies. Homeopathy has been a wonderful method of staying healthy for our family. There is a wonderful book called Beyond Flat Earth Medicine, by Dr Dooley, that is helpful in understanding some of the basic principles of homeopathy. There are also many studies demonstrating the effects of homeopathy beyond placebo. I believe that it is very important to maintain access to homeopathy for everyone, because it is effective and inexpensive.
