The FDA hearing on regulation of homeopathic medicine was held in Washington DC today. NPR Radio reported on the FDA hearing on the radio this morning. The homeopathic community was represented by numerous faces of the homeopathic community including Homeopathic Pharmacopeia Convention of the United States, Homeopathic Association of Naturopathic Physicians,IHA, NASH and others .The homeopathic pharmacies and organizations presented impressive comments. The question the FDA asked were concenring the labeling of homeopathic remedies and how to make sure the public is informed to know when they are purchasing homeopathic remedies. Something that the FDA and the homeopathic community both want. I am hoping a closer collaboration is at hand. Very proud of the professionalism and passion of the American homeopathic community.
The FDA questions were not concerned with efficacy of homeopathy, but with safety, though they were curious to hear comments about “method of action.” (Placebo? Nano particles? Memory of water? I vote of epigenetics.)
