National Center for Homeopathy (NCH) responds to the Food and Drug Administration’s warning to consumers to stop using homeopathic teething tablets and gels. NCH explains that homeopathy has a laudable and extensively documented clinical record, and there are hundreds of high quality, peer-reviewed basic science, pre-clinical, and clinical studies showing its efficacy and safety.

On September 30th, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a press release entitled “FDA warns against the use of homeopathic teething tablets and gels.” The response that followed led to the removal of homeopathic teething products from the shelves of stores.
The FDA later clarified in the press release that they were conducting an ongoing investigation as a response to reported serious adverse events. “While the FDA’s warning about homeopathic teething preparation seems arbitrary and capricious,” said Alison Teitelbaum, NCH Executive Director, “The media’s exaggerated fear mongering has made a bad situation worse.”
“Despite these facts, groups interested in seeing homeopathy destroyed continue to hammer away at the system – making exaggerated claims that create misunderstandings about and limit consumer access to homeopathic products,” continued Teitelbaum.
