Speak up! Don’t Let the FDA Restrict Your Access to Homeopathic Remedies!
Homeopathic medicines are used by millions of Americans and their kids. These remedies gently stimulate the body to heal itself, and are safe, natural and without side effects.
For more than 25 years, the FDA has established clear and enforceable standards for the manufacture and sale of homeopathic medicines in the US. Now, the agency wants to withdraw this standard and replace it with a vague enforcement policy. Without clear guidance on what is legal, regulatory enforcement can become arbitrary and capricious.
TAKE ACTION! Use the following link to tell your legislators to ask the FDA to incorporate key aspects of the current standard for homeopathic medicines into the agency’s new draft guidance.

A letter from Ronald Whitmont MD, the President of the American Institute of Homeopathy, regarding this issue:
Dear Friend of Homeopathy:
Thank you for choosing homeopathic medicines as part of yours and your family’s health care plan! We need your help to ensure that the highest quality and safest medicines remain available.
The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has regulated the manufacturing and marketing of homeopathic medicines since 1938. In 1990, to help create consistent and enforceable guidelines for the sale of these medicines, FDA enacted compliance Policy Guide 400.400 (CPG 400.400), Conditions Under Which Homeopathic Medicines May be Marketed in the United States. CPG 400.400 provides manufacturers of homeopathic medicines with clear and established safeguards for the manufacturing of the medicines.
Your state has Members of Congress that sit on the committees that have oversight of FDA and its actions. These Members have the opportunity to draft a letter to FDA that requests the Agency to incorporate key aspects of the current working guideline into new draft guidance it proposed in December 2017. In doing so, the new guidance will be more effective in guiding manufacturers to produce consistent, high-quality and safe homeopathic medicines and ensure you continue to have access to homeopathic medicines in your health care.
Thank you for your passion and your help! We apologize in advance if you receive this request through different homeopathic organizations. We are doing our best to spread the word and that may result in some overlap.
Thank you for your understanding!
