DISCLAIMER: The Food and Drug Administration has not evaluated the safety and efficacy of homeopathic drugs. There is no scientific evidence these products work. Claims are based on homeopathic theories from the 1700’s that most modern medical experts reject. For additional details, SEE “The Efficacy of Homeopathic Drugs”
The Efficacy of Homeopathic Drugs
This product is a homeopathic drug. Unlike conventional, allopathic drugs which must be proven safe and effective prior to marketing, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allows homeopathic drugs to be marketed without clinical trials or other scientific evidence establishing their safety or efficacy.
The efficacy of homeopathic drugs is based upon theories from the 1700s that most modern medical experts reject. Examples of such theories include the Law of Similars (the theory of “like cures like”) and the Law of Infinitesimal Doses (the theory that diluting a drug in water or alcohol increases therapeutic potency).
Consistent with homeopathic theories a “proving” is conducted to determine which symptoms a homeopathic drug produces at various dilutions. A proving is not like a conventional clinical trial, which is usually randomized, double blind, placebo–controlled and conducted on sick persons. During a proving, healthy individuals (also known as “provers” will take a homeopathic drug at different dilutions and record their thoughts, feelings and dreams; the provers do not know which homeopathic drug they were given. Their symptoms are then compared. If the homeopathic drug produced a common symptom among the provers, the homeopathic drug is expected to cure a person sick with the same symptom based upon the homeopathic theory that “like cures like”.
Some homeopathic drugs have been clinically tested with differing results; some were found to be more effective than placebo, and others were found to be ineffective. Our products have not been clinically tested. As the FDA allows under its compliance policy for homeopathic drugs, our claims are based on homeopathic theories.
