Bipartisan Support for Homeopathy

September 23, 2021

Give a big “Thank You” to those who work to protect homeopathy on Capitol Hill. Action Alert!

Earlier this year, we supported a sign-on letter from Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) calling on the FDA to clarify how the agency will ensure continued access to important homeopathic medicines. This was in response to a major assault by the FDA that threatens the entire homeopathic industry by declaring that all homeopathic drugs are being marketed illegally.

If major changes aren’t made to this policy, the FDA could, at any time, act to remove any and all homeopathic products it chooses, though the agency has delineated certain categories of products that are subject to enforcement actions.

After ANH and other stakeholder advocacy asking for support, the letter was signed by 25 other members of Congress. This is an impressive showing and demonstrates that a growing number of Congressional members are becoming educated about homeopathy and understand the importance of pushing back against the FDA’s attack. We will await the FDA’s response to the questions posed by the letter. Other efforts are underway to get the FDA to reverse its policy regarding homeopathic medicines, both through a Citizen Petition and through the introduction of a federal bill.

We’ve heard that some members have received significant blowback, likely a result from a coordinated campaign from opponents of homeopathy. We need these members of Congress to hear from those of us who appreciate their efforts to protect our right to choose homeopathic medicines to stay healthy.

For reference, here is the list of congressional supporters:

Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA)

Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-NM)

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) 

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ)

Rep. Gus Bilirakis (R-FL)

Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY)

    I would very much like to send the thanks, but when I click send it says I cannot send the message because I am not in the area they represent.

      I got the same response. I wish I hadn’t spent the time to write something if I wasn’t going to be able to send it. Oh, well, I’ll share it in the comments.

    I live in Colorado and you have one Colorado representative in your list. So I filled out your automated letter but keep getting the following message:

    ……………………………………… message I receive ……………………………………………………………………

    Thanks for trying to take action! Unfortunately, we could not send your message because either:

    A. You are not a constituent of the targeted officials

    or

    B. The targeted legislative seat is vacant at this time. The seat will be filled after the next scheduled election.
    ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

    I am a big believer of Homeopathy medicine.

    Thank you for doing this and all the work you do. It is such a great idea to thank those who are supporting homeopathy.

  7. Megan Robinson says:

    I tried to sign and send the letter, but it would not go through. The message said I was either not a constituent of the targeted officials or the legislative seat is vacant at this time. It’s unfortunate, as a long time homeopathic user and believer, I would like to thank them. I appreciate their efforts in trying to help keep our natural options open and available.

  8. Ruth A. Yacko says:

    Was unable to send this through. Thought I would let you know.

    I would love to sign more of your political actions but I do not have a cell phone due to Electrical Sensitivity – so the mobile # requirement leaves me & others like me, out of the loop – sorry!

    Thank you so much for your support of homeopathy — it has helped my family with many ailments over the years and should remain a personal healthcare choice.

  13. Dennis Owens says:

    Thank you for your support of healthcare freedom and the right for patients to seek the care they deem appropriate for themselves and their families. Your support of practitioners that utilize homeopathic, holistic, alternative, and integrative methods shows that you care about their patients health and freedom of choice.

    Again, much thanks!

    Trying to reply to thank the legislators. Google appears to be blocking me. Filled out the data and added my own recent surgical experience and can’t get it sent. It’s being blocked.

  18. Sara Sakuma says:

    Thank you all very much — both Republicans and Democrats! for signing the letter and risking having some disgruntled lobbyists and supporters.

    I was introduced to my first homeopathic remedy in the 1970s. A sleep aid (Calms Forte). Then in the 80s I found a remedy for children’s earaches (pulsatilla) which I tried myself and it worked when two rounds of antibiotics did not.

    There shouldn’t be only one approach to health like the standard allopathic medicine. We need many at our disposal. Antibiotics could stop working, vaccines could become only mildly useful, there might be supply chain problems. We need more options than less. Thank you again for making that possible.

    Dear friends,

    I tried to contact our California representative as I am as resident in California but got the same message as others, that I am not in a district of either of the California representatives . However, I use and appreciate the availability we have here to homeopathic remedies and practicers and am so grateful for those who are working to protect it here in the US.
