FTC to Host September Workshop in Washington, DC, to Examine Advertising for Over-the-Counter Homeopathic Products
I have been using homeopathy on myself and my family for the last 15 years. Many of my mainstream physicians have recommended it as a first course of action prior to using a presciption or over the counter medicine. Homeopathy is gentle and non toxic and wonderful for children and adults. I have had much success over the years with homeopathy. It has helped with ailments such as coughs, colds, headaches, bumps and bruises, and flu. I ask that you not get rid of something that has been around a lot longer than you and has been used safely. I have never heard of a reaction from a homeopathic medicine but know of many people who have had reactions from pharmaceutical drugs. I know big pharma has deep pockets and lots of influence in WAshington but I ask that you look beyond profits and do the right thing.
