Thank you for sharing this post. I did not realize that the FDA regulated these types of medicines.

I have yet to give homeopathic treatments a try, even though I have often thought of doing so. I know many friends who swear by natural treatments for their ailments, from the common cold to fibromyalgia. Sometimes I wonder if it is all in our minds. If we "will" ourselves to think that one form of treatment will work better over another. I see a lot of comments heavily in the direction of either homeopathic vs. western medicine & I suppose much like any thing else in life, it's a personal pereference & what works for one person may not work for another. That said, I may try some natural remedies for an inury I recently sustained & see if I can tell an honest difference. Thanks for doing these podcasts, either way :)

think you should always check with a real doctor that knows you history.

Great information. I have always been interested in homeopathy. I want to start doing this for my family. I hate that my kids have been given so many antiobiotics.

These are great tips with Flu season just around the corner! I never thought to look for homeopathic medicines for my son's allergies!

We don't even bother with drugs anymore, homeopathy has worked really well for us every winter and all year long! We take something at the onset of symptoms and it usually doesn't even take hold. We also take a lot of herbal remedies and garlic with honey when we know we will be exposed to lots of people.

I was unaware of the fact that patheos was = to suffering.

It's interesting that although homeopathic treatments have no active ingredients, it somehow makes things better! I'm all for it!

Wow, I am not overly surprised by all of the ignorant comments to this post. I have used homeopathic treatments for many things for my children and I. I was skeptical at first, imagining that these might be placebo. But I have had amazing results with many of these treatments. That's not to say I use no doctor or prescription chemicals because I do. I do not however, run to the doctor for every little thing and take dangerous and harmful medicines for every ailment. You can all go pump yourselfs full of man-made chemicals and toxins. I guess you would rather put your health in the hands of a human being rather than the perfection of God and nature. You people are so co-dependent it makes me laugh.

i love all the suggestions. Since there isnt a real "cure" for the common cold, its great to find things that help with symptoms that are natural and may help keep immune system up to fight them off

I haven't tried many homeopathic treatments for the common cold, for example. I'd consider trying it for preventative measures, but if I get a cold or flu, I'd need to make sure I get back on my feet ASAP!! :)

I swear by using Saline nose spray as soon as I start to feel sick. Also swear by washing my hands before I eat.
