Dear HANP family,
WE NEED YOUR HELP! Current FDA action is threatening the future availability of homeopathic medicines in the US. This will not only affect NDs, but most importantly all those patients who rely on these medicines to heal as well as maintain their health.
Since its inception, the US Food and Drug Administration has regulated homeopathic medicines as drugs. In 1988 the FDA Consumer Policy Guide 400.400 codified manufacturing and labeling guidelines and distinguished between OTC (acute, self-limiting conditions) and Rx (chronic conditions, nosodes) homeopathic drugs. The safety record of homeopathic drug usage over the ensuing 30 years attests to the existing policy guide. Many of you are aware of the recent activities of the FDA in regards to regulation of homeopathic drugs. In short, the compliance policy guide originally issued in 1988 that delineates the labeling, marketing, and sale of homeopathic products has been rescinded with no plans to replace. There is currently a draft of the FDA’s new plan regarding drugs labeled as homeopathic will greatly limit the production and marketing of homeopathic medicines in the US which will severely limit OTC usage and the companies that produce the remedies.
In Phase 1 of our efforts to guide the FDA’s plans for homeopathic drugs, we need to get the attention of representatives in the following states: CO, PA, NM, UT, WA, and TN. What stands before us is an opportunity to join together as one voice to alter the course of homeopathic drug regulation. This will affect millions of people who rely on this system of medicine that is so powerful and effective, especially when all other options have failed. What we need from those of you who have family, friends, or contacts in any of the above mentioned states is to contact them ASAP with the link provided below and ask that they help us by taking 30 seconds to TAKE ACTION to submit online letters with through our Voter Voice online action center.
In future phases, there will be opportunities for those of us currently living in other parts of the country to contact our representatives so please stay tuned for our upcoming course of action.
