FDA Hearings

FDA Hearings

Your last chance to submit comments to the FDA over your experiences with homeopathic medicines closes on June 22.  Prior to writing new (more restrictive) regulations about homeopathics which already fall under FDA jurisdiction and regulation, the FDA is seeking the following information:

  • Consumer attitudes about homeopathy
  • Whether or not consumers have enough information to make informed decisions about purchasing homeopathic products over the counter (OTC)
  • And whether there is confusion at store shelves with placement of homeopathic medicines next to non-homeopathic medicines

Guidance for Submitting Comments to the FDA on their Questionnaire –

  1. The most effective, meaningful comments will address:
  • YOUR attitudes about homeopathy, and/or
  • YOUR experiences making decisions about purchasing OTC homeopathic products

Why? Because THOSE TOPICS are what FDA is interested in gathering more information about.

  1. We know many, many people have amazing stories to tell about how well homeopathy worked for them. For the purposes of this public comment period, those stories are going to be most meaningful when they focus on using homeopathy for common ailments that can be self-diagnosed and treated at home (like colds, allergies, headaches, minor injuries, etc.) rather than chronic or diagnosed-based conditions. Again, FDA is most interested in hearing about consumer attitudes towards and making decisions about purchasing homeopathic products in stores. Please try to limit your comments to these topics.
  2. Pay attention to the length of your comments. Try to submit comments that are neither too short nor too long.  Be respectful and not belligerent.

All comments must be submitted online by June 22, 2015 here: http://www.regulations.gov/#!submitComment;D=FDA-2015-N-0540-0001

On the page:

  1. Make sure to uncheck that you are submitting comment on behalf of a third party.
  2. Select ‘individual consumer’ from the Category drop down menu.

Thank you in advance for your support and please forward this call for comment on to anyone else who you think might be interested in participating!

 

Everyone in this country (adults) should be able to make their own choices about their health care. No matter whether you prefer prescription drugs and hospitals (allopathic), good diet and natural remedies (prevention by good common sense), or by your faith and prayer. In America we have and rightfully should have freedom to choose.

In the field of healthcare, there are very strong economic interests that would like to take away your choices so that only they could supply their goods and services and make a fortune doing so.

The FDA is going through the motions at the moment that will eventually lead to elimination of most homeopathic remedies from the market to satisfy their friends at big Pharma. You can let your voice be heard as a consumer.

Okay, this is really giving me a headache. So it’s time to escape back to a happy place — to a coral reef off Belize.

Debra David - Leave our choices alone! I don’t want to take medications from Big Pharma. I prefer homeopathy and that should be okay in the Land of the Free!

Erica Ricky Kennedy - I am so appreciative that you share this kind of information, that we might take the opportunity to voice our experience and effect our futures.

Arline Constance - Leave us free to choose natural products rather than medicines. I have terrible reactions to most meds, but don’t to natural supplements. They work very well on me. We have lost too many freedoms. Don’t take this away from us too.

Sherley Crutchfield - Leave our natural medicine alone. You are so greedy it makes me sick. We still live in the land of the free.

Rita - Too many chemicals in our food and too many side effects from our drugs..alternative will be my choice.

Maria Castillo - I have the right to choose what I want for myself! I’d much rather go with the natural home remedies…

s .jacobs - We can buy all types of food /drugs /cleaning supplies that are hazardous to our health , ..I can buy cigarettes and alcohol . .please don’t take away natural remedies that help us ..this is really beginning to get way out there on my rights to take care of myself the way I choose to

Deb - Leave our choices for homeopathic medicine alone. FDA and big pharma is only driven by greed.

Tom Blaski - I would like you to keep available to me all remedies that I may choose.
