This is great news for genuine homeopathic remedies.
The Food and Drug Administration has recently announced that it is going to scrutinize the sale of some homeopathic remedies.
FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb has announced in a statement that the FDA is starting a new policy that will be looking into claims made by certain homeopathic remedy companies. He said, “In many cases, people may be placing their trust and money in therapies that may bring little to no benefit in combating serious ailments, or worse — that may cause significant and even irreparable harm because the products are poorly manufactured, or contain active ingredients that aren’t adequately tested or disclosed to patients.”
If some homeopaths are claiming that their homeopathic remedies are curing cancer, curing diabetes or curing one of the many killer diseases that are sweeping our society – then they are asking for trouble and deserve to be investigated. It is wrong to mislead people into thinking that a homeopathic formula can cure a medical condition outright.
However, many homeopaths make no such claim. They simply say that their homeopathic remedies may help relieve the symptoms of the condition, which is often very much appreciated by the suffering person. Especially when the person is already receiving approved medical treatment and they are just looking for that extra help to relieve them of their discomfort.
We always advise our customers to seek out professional medical help with any medical condition.
Once they have discussed their needs with a health professional, including all treatment options, if they wish to get additional support from a homeopathic remedy, then that is great news for everybody.
The person who has the ailment is happy.
The health professional has been consulted and is happy.
And the FDA is then assured that the citizen has not been mislead and the interests and health of the citizen is being looked after.
