Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a 200-year-old system of remedies which is designed to treat the whole person, both physically and psychologically, without toxic side effects. Unfortunately, our access to homeopathic treatments is now threatened by a draft guidance from the FDA. That's why Citizens for Health is allied with Americans for Homeopathy Choice (AFHC) in the fight to preserve access for all.. CFH and AFHC strongly believe everyone should have access to a full range of modalities if we are to be truly free in managing our health and wellness.
