Tell Whole Foods to Stop Limiting Your Homeopathy Access

Tell Whole Foods to Stop Limiting Your Homeopathy Access

Taking cues from the FDA, Whole Foods Market has decided to start yanking homeopathic medicines from their own shelves. We need to speak up to defend access to homeopathy NOW! Action Alert!

We have been hearing from our sources that Whole Foods Market has decided to end sales of single tube homeopathic medicines. These are the products that were in display cases in alphabetical order, but these display cases will soon be gone. This appears to be a business decision on the part of Whole Foods management, but in our view is no doubt informed by the FDA’s change in policy towards homeopathic medicines—a change that, technically speaking, deems all homeopathic medicines currently on the market to be illegal. This is akin to Amazon (which owns Whole Foods) eliminating NMN supplements after the FDA made determined that NMN wasn’t a legal dietary supplement.

We need to communicate to Whole Foods management that we want continued access to homeopathic products and this decision is bad for consumers and bad for the company. The market for homeopathic products is growing substantially. People more than ever are interested in alternatives to a failing conventional medical paradigm. Homeopathy is one such alternative, and it would be a major loss if a massive retailer like Whole Foods decided to preemptively eliminate homeopathic medicines.

It would be especially disappointing because we are starting to gain steam in Congress to defend homeopathy. We reported recently that we’re working to get an amendment added to a House appropriations bill to prevent the FDA from attacking homeopathic medicines that meet existing safety and manufacturing standards; separately, the Senate Appropriations Committee included language aimed at protecting homeopathy in their report accompanying the annual FDA spending bill. 

Our advocacy is clearly having an effect. Whole Foods should use its clout to join us in defending access to homeopathic products its customers rely on, not kowtow to a misguided FDA policy that we’re working to fix.

For consumers concerned about finding single tube homeopathic medicines, we’re told that Sprouts, the Vitamin Shoppe, and Natural Grocers continue to carry them.

Action Alert! Use the forms below to 1) send a message Whole Foods opposing their removal of homeopathic medicines from their stores, and 2) send a message to Congress supporting the appropriations amendment preventing the FDA from enforcing its guidance. Please send your messages immediately.

    I’ll participate in asking them not to do this but they are really a terrible store since they are now corporate owned. Truthfully, if Whole Foods failed, I would not be upset.

    I buy directly from the homeopathy companies themselves now but I know about homeopathy & its benefits through study & trials & error with remedies. I don’t know how other people will learn about homeopathy if they don’t see it in stores & then start asking questions & researching.

    Time to BOYCOTT Whole Foods? No longer a ‘health food store”. More like an Amazon warehouse than a place to find wholesome food and healing.

    Eighty percent of fisheries are overfished or outright collapsing. Many marine species that depend on fish for their survival are starving from lack of food. If this keeps up, those starving species will become extinct.

    This is my personal story. We moved to Benicia in 1991 and in spring season my allergies really flared up. I took allergy shots every week till I had allergic reaction to the allergy shots. Doctors told me that they could not help me any more. I found a homeopath Deborah Olenev, in Palo Alto who cured my allergies with homeopathic medicine in 1995. To this day I am allergy free.

    People just need to not shop at Wholefoods. Boycott them for numerous reasons like stores wanting people to scam phone to enter. We could make the company go bankrupt.

    This is the beginning of big pharma taking control of our health. Are you really going to enable this Whole Foods? I thought this company was pro health and nutrition.
