FTC to Host September Workshop in Washington, DC, to Examine Advertising for Over-the-Counter Homeopathic Products
I have used homeopathics for over 20 years starting with treating my daughter's eczema which has been resolved. I and my family have used them for colds, flu, teething, liver cleanses, depression, anxiety, pain, muscular and rheumatic issues, trauma recovery, emotional disturbances, and more.... All healed through the use of homeopathic medicine. Because of its minute doses, I have little to no side effects and little interference with any other medication. In fact, rarely have we needed any other allopathic drugs. Now, this economy has taken a down turn and more than ever we are in need of affordable options for self care. Homeopathy is extremely cost effective and affordable because it is able to be purchased over the counter and also what it cost to actually make it is economical. In 20 years I have had absolutely NO negative effects from use so over the counter should suffice for its regulation. Requiring anything more would double or tripple the cost making it less accessible.
