PAAM – Physicians’ Association for Anthroposophic Medicine
Dear friends and colleagues,
As we mentioned in December, the FDA recently released a Revised Draft Guidance on Homeopathy in late October 2019 (click here to read it).
Although the new October 2019 guidance has some helpful changes, it also has some detrimental ones. Unfortunately, the detrimental ones are very detrimental, and those of us who want to protect the future of homeopathy in America must now pressure the FDA to revise this guidance considerably. The homeopathic community, including PAAM, continues to be in dialogue with legal counsel and with the FDA, but is essential that we have a 180-day extension in order to respond adequately to the FDA. More time is needed to analyze the complex legal and policy matters arising from this latest guidance so that we can respond appropriately and completely.
If the current Draft Guidance is approved by the FDA, it will mean the end of the availability of many low-potency remedies used in Anthroposophic Medicine and homeopathy. It will risk the elimination of non-oral and non-topical remedies that are often used in anthroposophic medicine. The Revised Draft Guidance also gives too broad of discretionary powers that would allow the FDA to designate any homeopathic remedy “high risk” and can require that the remedy be considered a non-FDA-approved new drug that would then require an expensive and unlikely drug-approval process. That means that when the FDA removes a homeopathic remedy from the market, it will be the equivalent of banning it forever. Those who believe they will simply be able to order homeopathic remedies from abroad will be in for a rude surprise. The FDA will stop shipments of homeopathic remedies that have been effectively banned in the United States at the border.
Please take action today by reading through this updated letter from Americans for Homeopathic Choice, which contains a link to a newly-updated comment form (the link is also provided here). Even if you have already made a comment to the FDA, please comment again using this updated form. Once you follow the link you can use the ready-made comments provided, you can compose your own comments, or you can combine the provided comments with your own, just as long as your voice is heard by the FDA, Congress, the Vice President and the President.
So far we’ve generated 24,000 comments, but we need two to three times that, so please, submit another comment using the link above, before January 23rd, and forward this email to everyone you know, encouraging them to also take action.
Thank you for your attention and support!
For the PAAM Board,
Ricardo Bartelme, MD
