Many people have taken to using natural remedies to cure small ailments in the body. Eucalyptus oil helps to relieve headaches and soothes coughs, which is one of the leading active ingredients in Vicks Vapor Rub. Most people drink tea with lemon and honey when they are sick, and some different natural plant-based ingredients to help heal their bodies. However, even though the general population considers homeopathic remedies safe and effective, the FDA and Big Pharma, possibly because they are losing out on money, has decided to wage war against homeopathic treatments.
What is homeopathy?
The primary tenant of homeopathy is that the body has the natural ability to heal itself. According to WebMD homeopathy is the idea that if you take a small amount of a substance similar to what ails you, then that will cure you. It seems barbaric at first glance but makes more sense when you start to see some of the remedies. Homeopathic treatment has been used for a number of years and has even been regulated by the FDA.
Most popular homeopathic remedies
Homeopathic treatments have been used to cure a number of different ailments such as allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, gout, and other gut related issues. Because most of the sickness in our bodies come from what we put into them, it follows that by using natural cures and herbs, we can heal our bodies from the inside out. Womansworld.com has several different homeopathic remedies and what they help to cure.
Big pharma and the FDA are taking away homeopathic drugs
Although homeopathic remedies have been used for many years and are considered to be safe, according to Dr. Mercola, the FDA and pharmaceutical companies are looking to consider homeopathic remedies as new drugs that must be regulated. Previously these remedies were a “use at your own risk” type deal. Most solutions contain small amounts of natural ingredients that were deemed more beneficial than harmful. Even though the FDA has approved many dangerous pharmaceuticals for use, they are now declaring that every homeopathic drug that has not been reviewed by them, illegal. This is very concerning considering the number of adverse side effects present in the drugs they do approve. One could say the FDA may not have the best record when it comes to reviewing medications for use in the general population.
It is concerning that tried and true all natural plant-based remedies will become illegal to use unless approved by the FDA. Considering the scope of the FDA, it is worrisome that treatments we have relied on for years may no longer be available in the near future.
