Now, Obama’s bureaucracy is attempting to drive a stake in the heart of an extremely popular industry – and one that millions of Americans rely on for their health (and should be free to choose if that’s what they want). In a public notification, the FTC is ordering makers of homeopathic products to prove they work and are effective, or state that there is “no scientific evidence that the product works.”
- Homeopathy, which dates back to the late-eighteenth century, is based on the view that disease symptoms can be treated by minute doses of substances that produce similar symptoms when provided in larger doses to healthy people.
- The notice went on to say that many homeopathic products are so diluted they no longer have “detectable levels” of the primary substance.
- he concept behind homeopathic medicine is sound. It seeks not to mask or suppress symptoms, like “modern” medicine, but rather to address an overall syndrome of body and mind, and thereby strengthening the body’s own ability to defend against disease.
