I’m still basking in the glow of the amazing Homeopathy on the Hill event I participated in on Thursday 4/22/21. Basically, 700 homeopathy advocates, both consumers and practitioners of homeopathic drugs, joined forces to have phone and online meetings with Congressional staffers. We communicated to these staffers our reasons that homeopathic drugs should be protected by the FDA and not outlawed. We asked the staffers to tell the Congress people they work with to collaborate to restore a 1979 bill to keep homeopathic drugs legal. Already, some homeopathic drugs are being blocked by the FDA, and we want to stop any more from being blocked. This is just the beginning of the campaign!
I’m grateful for Paola Brown as president of Americans for Homeopathy Choice for leading the fight. Paola accomplished a Herculean task. Kudos to her and her team!
Anyway, for the capstone of the event, we got to hear from Lindsay Wagner, the Bionic Woman. She appeared on Zoom for all of the participants to see and hear her story of using homeopathy. Wow! Can you believe she’s 71? Someone in the Zoom room showed us all her Bionic Woman lunch box. That’s the photo at the top. Lindsay looks the same on the lunch box from decades ago as she does today!
It must be her use of homeopathy that keeps her so young! She told her story of discovering homeopathy in the early 1980s. She first used it for some emotional issues and then turned to it for her delivery of her first baby and then for her children’s health issues. She said that when her children were little, they knew if they had aches or pains to bring “the yellow book” to Lindsay to ask her for help. It’s the book above, by Stephen Cummings and Dana Ullman. It was so fun to see that Dana was in the zoom room so he could see/hear this acknowledgement from Lindsay that she relied on his book to be a Dr. Mom.
If you are curious about becoming a Dr. Mom yourself with homeopathy (HP), I encourage you to sign up for Paola Brown’s Homeopathy for Moms Book Club. I’m starting it on Tuesday May 11 so don’t delay! Go here to get all the details!
