Keeping homeopathy safe and available in the US has been a marathon effort with intermittent sprints that require us to make our support known to the FDA and Congress. We face a very important sprint with a deadline of December 2, 2020 to show our support of Americans for Homeopathy Choice’s Citizen Petition to permanently embed the availability of properly labeled and manufactured homeopathic medicine into the federal regulations.
We’re facing a very serious threat to homeopathy in the United States. The FDA is proposing in their latest October 2019 Draft Guidance to treat all homeopathic medicines as “new drugs”. This would mean every remedy to be legally sold in the US would need clinical trials showing safety and efficacy, a process which could cost anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000 or more per individual remedy. Remedies cannot be patented. No homeopathic manufacturer has the ability to conduct drug trials to meet the “new drug application (NDA)” requirements. In effect, this could render all homeopathic remedies as illegal. This would allow the FDA to declare all homeopathic medicines illegal and withdraw any or all of them at any time.
Homeopathy is a safe, effective natural alternative medicine, and we want to make sure families in the United States and around the globe are able to access it. Americans for Homeopathy Choice (AFHC) recently submitted a petition to the FDA urging them to reconsider this classification.
20 leading homeopathy organizations have banded together to support this petition. Now, we need your help. We’re submitting comments to the FDA in support of the petition. When you leave a comment through the AFHC website, it goes directly to the FDA, as well as members of Congress and other federal officials. Our goal is 100,000 comments.
