“FDA: All Homeopathic Drugs Illegal”, Alliance for Natural Health (USA)

“In one fell swoop, the FDA has declared that virtually every single homeopathic drug on the market is being sold illegally”. On January 11, 2018 the Alliance for Natural Health (USA) reported that a new guidance document (linked in their Action Alert) issued by the US Food and Drug Administration defines its new, risk-based approach to the regulation of homeopathic drugs. The article (2 minute read), “FDA: All homeopathic drugs illegal”, goes on to assert “We suspected the agency was planning to tighten its grip on homeopathy, which, after all, competes with the pharmaceutical drugs that fund the FDA”. Health Canada’s proposed new risk-based regulations that capture NHPs in the “Modernization of Self-Care Product Regulation” is looming release. Canadians’ access to safe and effective homeopathic remedies will be affected. Manufacturers and Practitioners will continue to be dispossessed of their product base.
