There has been a sudden concern by the FDA about the manufacture and safety of over the counter homeopathic medications. Safety alerts have been issued and there will be a public hearing about the issue in one week on April 20 and 21, 2015.
This hearing comes only 3 weeks after the bulletin announcing safety concerns with homeopathic medications. It seems as if this sudden concern is an attack to further regulate homeopathy and make it harder for clients as well as practitioners to access homeopathic medications.
Homeopathic medicines have been accepted and regulated in the Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the United States (HPUS) and regulated under a document called CPG Sec. 400.400, Conditions Under Which Homeopathic Drugs May be Marketed. This has been in place for 40 years.
Homeopathic medicine is the safest form of medicine on the planet. Being energetic in nature it is virtually impossible for homeopathic remedies to do significant harm, especially when prescribed and managed by a professional homeopath.
Now there is a sudden push to label them as dangerous and to further control homeopathic medications. The time is NOW!!! to come to the defense of Homeopathy. Oral comments will be accepted at the hearing on April 20 and 21. Written comments will be accepted until June 22, 2015. The FDA needs to hear from you.

After 40 years there is a sudden push for change. This is in the face of thousands of FDA approved drugs that have significant direct adverse effects on peoples health. Homeopathic medicine is safe and needs to remain available.
