    My family has used homeopathic remedies for 25 years with great benefit and no side effects. We do not take drugs and instead use homeopathic remedies, herbals, vitamins, minerals, flower remedies. and other functional medicine approaches to healing. Some regulators themselves do not understand how homeopathy works, insisting that it is diluted and, therefore, weak medicine. Nothing could be further from the truth. Homeopathic remedies are diluted and succussed, but that does not translate into weak. They are safe, they are effective, they are inexpensive, and they compete with dangerous pharmaceutical drugs. That is their problem – the pharma establishment cannot stand any competition that might undermine their profits. They taut safety because their products have undergone “testing.” However, tens of thousands of people die each year from these “tested” medications. How many people die from homeopathy? ZERO.

    Please PROTECT Homeopathy treatments! It SAVES LIVES!!

  3. The very least we have to have is that if the FDA is able to legally establish that homeopathics cannot be stated to be medicine, that they must at least be able to be established that they fall in the realm of supplements or energy medicine to protect their availability to clinicians and the public. Dr. J. Comanor.

  4. Jeff Wells says:

    Homeopathy is a COMPLETE *FRAUD* because it’s nothing but *WATER* diluted so many times that the likelihood of a single molecule of the so-called “cure” still being in the final product is essentially *ZERO* – and if it’s not zero what could a single molecule of *anything* do??

    People have *DIED* from homeopathic “treatments'” but even worse so have their children and pets!

    Antone who advocates or practices this CRAP belongs in JAIL!!

      So according to you every 3rd indian citizen should be in jail

    • Dear Mr. Wells,

      You can be forgiven for being completely ignorant about the fundamentals of homeopathic pharmacology and the solid science supporting the clinical practice of homeopathic medicine.

      Please go to https://homeopathic.com/category/homeopathic-research to educate yourself.

      Your remarks about alleged deaths are totally unfounded, unsubstantiated, erroneous, and inflammatory. In fact, a thorough search of international medical data bases reveals no such deaths of humans or animals.

      In contradistinction, over 40 years of medical practice, I have observed many patients fully recover from very serious illnesses and traumas under carefully prescribed homeopathic medical care from which they would have otherwise succumbed or been permanently disabled.

      Homeopathic medicine is an excellent, safe and cost-effective therapeutic tool for everyone to have at home for self-care, as well as for well-trained, licensed, health care providers to utilize in the treatment of acute and chronic diseases.

      Jeff, I would suggest that the next time that you injure yourself, give homeopathy a trial. If you catch your finger in a door and injure your nail-bed, take Hypericum perforatum 30C. If you fall and injure your head and/or limbs, take Arnica montana 30C. Use 5 pellets of the indicated remedy dissolved on the tongue every 20 to 30 minutes for 6 doses and see what happens to your injury. Firsthand experience is one of the best ways to realize the truth about homeopathy’s therapeutic efficacy.

      To Your Health,
      Dr. Mitch Fleisher

    • Bernardo A Merizalde, MD says:

      With all due respect Jeff, your message is an indication of your ignorance on the subject, if you had read the evidence, the least you would have concluded is that research in homeopathy (6 metanalysis of randomized controlled trials, show that homeopathy appears to have a greater effect on placebo, though the evidence is small, due to lack of replication or poor design quality. Most of the negative research on homeopathy doesn’t follow a protocol that could possibly show results, because it doesn’t follow the principles of homeopathic treatment. There is published data, for about two hundred years, showing the efficacy of homeopathy in deadly diseases, and before the advent of antimicrobials. This track record on safety is unsurpassed by any medical treatment. However, homeopathy is not a panacea, and conventional medicine is necessary in some instances. I have been a practicing physician using homeopathy for over forty years.

      Dear Wells
      It’s my earnest request to you to go and visit a good Homoeopathic practitioner and see how his/ her patients are doing and whether they are getting any benefits or not? It doesn’t matter, whether any traceable substance is present in the Homoeopathic medicine or not. Millions of people are getting relief, that’s the best proof. Homeopaths around the globe are busy in rendering relief to the ailing mankind not in finding the basis of medicinal action. It doesn’t mean what we don’t see or understand never exists. It’s also not matter of faith or belief; had it be the issue, how it acts with infants and newborn. It’s also not wise to debar a true system of healing on the name of having no scientificity or someone’s interest being hampered. If it’s a offence to render relief to the mankind at no cost to health of the sick or with no ADR or serious ADR, then it’s with you whether to advocate homoeopathy or criticise it. But no one can ever hide the truth. Someday will come, Homoeopathy will be at every doorstep and prove efficacious.

    • Jack says:

      Hundreds of thousands of people have died from allopathic drugs that are legal, and are the cause of many chronic diseases. Why isn’t THAT a problem???

    • Kinga Barry says:

      If as you claim homeopathic medicine is “nothing but diluted water,” how can you claim that “people have died from taking it?”

    • Rebecca Cordova says:

      Dear Jeff,
      I will take homeopathic medicine any day over drugs. It has been quite beneficial for my family and friends. Drugs do have their place, but so do homeopathics.

  5. Linda says:

    My Dad had Lymphoma, and was doing very good, till he was put in nursing home to recover from a fall, they refused to let him take his homeopathic things, and he went down hill fast and passed away.

  6. Karl says:

    A Homeopathic doctor treated (and cured) my Polio. Homeopathy is definitely worth defending. Thanks to that doctor and my parents who were smart enough to reject the conventional wisdom of that era, I was never in one of those dreadful ‘Iron Lungs’.

  7. Katharine Kramer says:

    Homeopathic “medicines” are not harmful and are often helpful.

  8. Patti Hoyopatubbi says:

    We have to stand up to FDA which is controlled by big pharma so we can prevent and cure our selves with herbs and plants from the earth .
    They can’t make money on that so they lie and make chemicals in labs that make people sicker and never CURE anything!
    Stand up to them !

  9. MJ Raichyk says:

    Whatever happened to that research that showed that water molecules can be induced to have a ‘memory’ of what was mixed with them vigorously [whatever that meant]……… ?

    And now there’s even microdosing…

    or perhaps THIS ATTACK IS RELATED TO THE DOCTORS WHO **OFFER** CANCER PATIENTS THE OPTION OF DOING CHEMO AS HOMEOPATHIC MEDICINE…….. boom! [strike ONE in FDA books]…..Saw that oncology-via-homeopathy interview once upon a time on Dr Mercola interviewing such an oncologist. The key was that he was also offering the full strength chemo so his license was safer.

    I favor orthomolecular and naturopathic medicine, but was impressed with the homeopathic score data on the 1918 pandemic, and that Hahneman tried his stuff on himself first. And i believe that our DO doctor said she used a homeopathic something to AVOID THE HOSPITAL VAX RULES…. [strike TWO in FDA books]…..

    The chiropractors won, so can you, imo. ttyl

  10. I’m a veterinary homeopathic practitioner. I’ve helped thousands of animals with homeopathy. There is no placebo effect in animals. This stuff works!!!!!

  11. Judy says:

    AS the old saying goes…AMERICA IS GREAT, FREEDOM OF SPEECH! Let AMERICANS make our own choices when it comes to our HEALTH. FDA know there is “NO PROFIT IN CURE” Let Freedom Ring.

  12. Margaret says:

    My husband was given narcotics for a recent procedure. Just two doses cause him to be severely constipated and experience great abdominal pain. We switched over to homeopathic and natural medications to help his pain. Not only did these products help his pain, there were no negative side effects.
    I have yet to meet an MD who has any understanding of homeopathic medicine. The fact is it is safe. Don’t they give an oath to Do no harm. If prescription medicine is the fourth leading cause of death in this country then I think that is reason to be alarmed. Who really needs to pull their products off the shelf?
    It’s just another case of big Pharma bullying people around for their profit.

  13. Donna Bugg says:

    I have been using homeopathy for 25 years now and it has helped me tremendously. I rarely get sick and haven’t had the flu in over 20 years. I use it for burns, digestive issues, etc. It is very unfair to remove something that works wonders without the side effects.

  14. Nina Fodale says:

    With all the man made toxic waste infiltrating our eco system and then our bodies, we need not to keep putting pharmaceuticals in our systems which leech back into the environment that causes more damage.
    If there is a more natural less invasive way to heal ourselves with the a better outcome why wouldn’t you support that? Seems like a no brainier to me.

  15. Roberta Jamieson says:

    I am a homeopathic patient and I also use it for my pers and farm animals. It WORKS! The allopathic medical cartel is trying to kibosh a modality they find threatening. They want to sell their drugs and keep the public sick and dependent.

  16. Kristen D says:

    Since stepping away from conventional medicine and choosing to use homeopathic medicine I have never been healthier. My brain fog is gone, sensory issues are under control, I sleep deep, my body doesn’t ache, I’m focused, motivated, energetic.

  17. Ruth Perkins says:

    I love homeopathy ♥️

  18. Jeanne says:

    My dog lived 2 1/2 more years due to homeopathy.

  19. If the law of similars does not work then why does the medical establishment use antivenom, when no double blind studies have been done on them. Homeopathy, like antivenom, does not work because of the dose, because of who manufactured it, because scientists approve of it, but because it follows a law of nature. The law of gravity affects everyone the same way, it does not affect those who believe in it more than those who do not.. The law of similars works in the people who do not believe in it, in the same way it does in those who do. For instance, whether you believe that surf life savers say not to swim against the current, you will still perish if you do. A law begins to operate the moment it is activated. When a virus enters the body the immune system begins to manufacture antibodies to fight the very virus that enters the body. Homeopathy is a form of immunotherapy. Antibiotics on the other hand uses the law of opposite.

  20. Beth Crafts Bell says:

    Homeopathy does work for me and many many many people I know who also use homeopathy. This is just about drug companies being worried about alternative care taking away some of the market share. Very sad. We need to push back every chance we get. Talk to YOUR Representatives at the local, State and Federal level. You have to let the know what you experience and opinion is on this issue. It does make a difference – or atleast we must believe it does!

  21. Rosetta Davis says:

    I have been a practicing homeopath for 45 years. I studied this science under the direction of a doctor for over 3 years once a week. I have been doing significant studies of my own for the past 45 years. Homeopathy is not a drug it is an herb. It is the practice of curing the patient from ailments with herbs that share a similar reaction. Like cures like. The Queen of England is a homeopath. Homeopathy can be used successfully with modern medicine in reducing the side effects of modern drugs. It has been practiced throughout the ages and modern medicine (drugs) is an infant by comparison to how long homeopathy has been practiced. The principles of homeopathy were passed down to us from Dr. Hahnemann (Germany) and is older than any drug company in existence. Used properly one can effect a “cure” sometimes temporary but can also lead to full remission. There is absolutely no comparison between homeopathy and drugs save for the fact that many drug companies are trying to use herbs in their drugs, which may not produce the desired effect as drugs overpower the simple effects of the herb. Herbs react on the immune system offering a suggestion (with repetition) that the symptoms cease – and sometimes they do. I am allergic to most drugs and have found Homeopathy a necessary salvation for what ails me. Homeopathy sound not be regulated as it is not a drug and never could be! Thank goodness. That is the beauty of the herb. Obviously the FDA does not understand nor does it know anything about the art-cure of homeopathy, sometimes it takes a lifetime of study, which I have been doing. God bless Homeopathy! God bless America.

    • Christie Phillips says:

      Rosetta – I respect and agree with your advocacy! Just to clarify a little bit, we DO need the FDA to continue to regulate homeopathy as it has done successfully for decades. Its job has been to enforce the standards set in the Homeopathic Pharmacoepia of the US, to ensure Current Good Manufacturing Practices are used by producers, and enforcing labeling standards. We need this in order to have the assurance that what is on the label is in fact what is IN the bottle. Until now the FDA has left it up to the HPUS to govern what various remedies do and how they act, while the FDA simply ensures that homeopathic pharmacies do THEIR job properly according to the HPUS. We don’t need the FDA to be completely out it. We need them to do the job they’ve successfuly been doing and NOT to reclassify homeopathic medicines as if they were dangerous pharmaceuticals requiring cost-prohibitive risk/benefit analysis. It will be a de facto elimination of any homeopathic remedy they decide must prove its safety in the same way pharmaceutical drugs must. Homeopathic medicines are inherently safe and non-toxic. That is what FDA is not understanding and acknowledging.

  22. Jeanna Clifford says:

    Homeopathy has worked well for my family and should not be eliminated as a practice. While it may not be for everyone (those that have limited beliefs and limited understanding of the science behind it for example). It’s a freedom that should not be infringed upon for those that it works for wanting alternatives to allopathic medicine with all it’s negative side effects.

  23. Gurneet Arora says:

    I belive in homeopathy my situation was worsened by allopathy in childhood n was treated by homeopathy n since then i decided to be a homeopath there are many allopaths who have converted to homeopath in india if given chance it will be best

  24. Jessica says:

    I love my homeopathy!

    Homeopathy has been the only thing that has helped me actually feel better and I’ve never been healthier. Pharmaceutical companies have only made me sicker over the years. Using homeopathy, I have eliminated previous health conditions I suffered from and eliminated the need for pharmaceutical drugs and this is what pharmaceutical companies are afraid of. To them, it’s about the profits, not the health of our population! Homeopathy WORKS!

  25. a concerned American says:

    It strikes to the core of democracy and freedom itself, to over regulate health supplements and homeopathics to the point of threatening our freedom of choice and the availability of things that help us on the health level. People must be free to choose their own desired medical path.
    It is dictatorship to over- control. Follow the money, but welcome to the power games. This is not acceptable on our hard earned tax dollars here in the Land of the Free.

  26. Pritha says:

    My family is using homoeopathic medicines for more than 30 years and for its miraculous results I opted to study Homoeopathic medicine and serve he humanity in a gentle manner.
    From the age of 9 till 39 years, I had popped in antibiotics only once. Homoeopathic medicines and naturopathy has always helped me.
    Same results have been found in my other gam members and most of them have stopped taking allopathic medication.
    The attack on Homoeopathic medicine is just due to Pharma industry who are loosing their money.

  27. Samantha Pryor says:

    I am a former nurse and I never saw any medication work as well as homeopathic remedies. They are under attack because of the pharmaceutical industry wanted no other remedies out there, except for their own.

  28. Josiane Swartz says:

    You are entitled to your opinion Mr Jeff Wells, but, it’s obvious to me that you have zero knowledge of what homeopathy is and the success it can bring to different ailments. You obviously have come across a deceitful article & you believed every word, unfortunately, whatever you read is a lie from my perspective. I am from Europe where homeopathy is very well known & has been used safely for century, and I have been using it myself & my family for over 40 yrs and have been also using on my pets and the results have been nothing but positive without the awful side effects known to come along with drugs that Big Pharma is pushing. Unlike all the thousand people who have already lost their lives due to the terrible side effects of some drugs, homeopathy does NOT cause death and or bad side effects. The fact that homeopathy is diluted is at the key of their effectivness. there are plenty truthful articles about this wonderful natural therapy that would explain and clarify it, if you are really looking for the truth. Sadly, Greed from big Pharma is behind all this negativity as they are very reluctant to loose any dollar in the sale of their drugs. I hope and will add my name to safeguard Homeopathy as long as I can. People should have a right to choose.

  29. Josiane Swartz says:

    isn’t the FDA’s job supposed to look out for the public interest and welfare? but, at the same time, it is a conflict of interest because isn’t it a fact that the FDA is receiving compensation in some form from big pharma? I would hope that the FDA seriously learn and read truthful articles about what Homeopathy really is and all the benefits that it has brought to millions of people for over a century. it is well known and documented that pharmaceuticals drugs have killed thousands of patients due to the harsh drug side effects compared to homeopathy which does not kill people from side effects & actually can be very effective treatments. People should have an other option besides drugs from big pharma. There is plenty room for both options. I hope that the FDA realizes that homeopathy should & need to remain as another option for patients that do not do well on regular drugs. thank you

  30. Lawrence Hernandez says:

    I agree with natural homeopathic remedies and have always trusted this philosophy of medical treatment.

  31. Garth says:

    My sister was basically dying when she was in her 40’s, 10+ years ago. She went to lots of allopaths, but they could not figure out what was wrong with her. Then someone recommended a homeopath who really knew his stuff. He tested her blood against dozens of things and found out what was causing reactions that were essentially killing her, and he put her on a diet he designed to enable her body to reset and heal. It worked. I credit him with saving her life when conventional medicine proved worthless.
