The FDA and other governmental organizations are acting rapidly to render natural medicines unavailable to Americans. We need to take urgent action as the FDA plans to ban homeopathic medicines.
The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) quick and deceptive authorization of the potentially damaging COVID-19 experimental “vaccines,” combined with the agency’s tremendous crusade to endorse the jabs, resoundingly supports the fact that the FDA receives a large portion of its financing from pharmaceutical company user fees. Big Pharma is essentially the FDA’s client. This revelation explains why the FDA, which is also in charge of regulating the distribution of more organic approaches to healthcare, wants to prohibit the sale of vitamins and supplements. Furthermore, the FDA has released recommendations that will make all homeopathic drugs unlawful.
According to Alliance for Natural Health (ANH), the FDA scheduled a hearing in 2015 to assess its enforcement practices for homeopathic goods. The now-removed FDA hearing notice announced its intent to “obtain information and comments from stakeholders about the current use of human drug and biological products labeled as homeopathic, as well as the Agency’s regulatory framework for such products.” Prescription medications and biological products labeled as homeopathic, as well as over-the-counter (OTC) drugs labeled as homeopathic, are examples of these goods.
According to ANH, when the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act was enacted, homeopathic remedies were supposed to be grandfathered, but the FDA has utterly ignored this. Likewise, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is determined to outlaw homeopathic remedies. According to the FDA, an over-the-counter homeopathic medication claim that is not supported by “competent and reliable” scientific data is fraudulent if it does not include the following disclaimer: 1) there is no scientific proof that the product works ; and 2) The claims made for the product are supported only by antiquated homeopathic beliefs that date back to the 1700s. The bottom line, as ANH correctly points out, is that “homeopathy lacks hugely expensive drug trials.” ANH notes:
Regardless of whether homeopathic remedies were intended to be grandfathered, homeopathic products are subject to the same approval, adulteration, and misbranding standards as other drug products under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. The FDA website notes that “Products labeled as homeopathic and currently marketed in the U.S. have not been reviewed by the FDA for safety and effectiveness to diagnose, treat, cure, prevent or mitigate any diseases or conditions.” There are presently no homeopathic products approved by the FDA.

The FDA and other governmental organizations are acting rapidly (like they did with the experimental COVID shots) to render natural medicines unavailable to Americans, underscoring their aggressive effort for outlawing homeopathy (despite traditionally being recognized for moving incredibly slowly). Recent activity at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), which was given the FDA’s draft regulation for homeopathic medicines, gives some indication of how quickly natural remedies are being outlawed. Significant rules and regulations must be reviewed by OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) to ensure that costs and benefits are properly taken into account. OIRA also confirms that the governing body (the FDA) has made a “reasonable determination that the benefits justify the costs.” ANH reported on December 1, 2022, in an article headed “Homeopathy Bombshell Coming,” that:
ANH’s Scientific Director Robert Verkerk, Ph.D., stressed that the stakes with the FDA’s attack on natural medicines could not be greater. The FDA has positioned itself to expedite the approval of an increasing number of mRNA vaccines for a variety of illnesses. The FDA’s draft (read below) anti-homeopathy regulation effectively proclaims that every homeopathic medicine on the market is illegal. The FDA draft guidance, which is already focusing on homeopathic products, states:
- Any homeopathic drug that has not been considered “generally recognized as safe and effective” (GRAS/E) is considered a new drug;
- FDA has not determined that any homeopathic drugs are GRAS/E;
- A new drug cannot be marketed unless it goes through the FDA’s approval process;
- No homeopathic drugs have gone through FDA approval.
As previously stated (and as ANH pointed out), Big Pharma is a big client of the FDA. Since homeopathic remedies, such as supplements as well as other natural products, compete directly with pharmaceutical products, the FDA—the taxpayer-funded agency charged with protecting public health—is using its enormous power to “tilt the scales in favor of the drug companies.” ANH (which has an urgent Action Alert link below headlined “Tell Congress and FDA: Stop the Attack on Homeopathy”) characterized the FDA’s attack as an entry point to entirely eradicate homeopathic medicine:
