FTC to Host September Workshop in Washington, DC, to Examine Advertising for Over-the-Counter Homeopathic Products
My family and I have used homeopathic remedies and formulas for many different easily treatable conditions over the last two decades, including sprains and injuries, colds and flus, heartburn and food poisoning. These products don't always work, but often enough they have provided us real tangible relief with our health problems. And just as importantly, we have never been badly effected by using these homeopathic products - such as with poisonings or side-effects. To me, homeopathy has proved very safe and often very effective. Please, I am asking the Commission to not restrict my family's access to these needed health care products, for we would be much worse off if that were to happen. Thanks very much for your consideration!
