Attorney Discusses Homeopathic Remedies Lawsuit

. By
San Diego, CAWhen it comes to purchasing—and using—homeopathic remedies, "Buyer Beware," says attorney Ronald Marron, Law Offices of Ronald Marron, who is currently investigating homeopathy fraud claims against manufacturers and determining "whether such claims are actionable," i.e., if they justify homeopathic remedies lawsuits.

"There are so many homeopathic products, including homeopathic remedies, elixirs and food supplements on the market making false claims and they are proliferating," says Marron. "Any manufacturer making a health claim that is unsubstantiated, such as products that claim to boost or support the immune system, provide overall digestive health, cure the common cold, make you more virile and increase your muscle size, is likely practicing consumer fraud."

There's a lot to be said for the expression, If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

"And to confuse the public even more, a lot of these products are either sold generically with vendors or stores such as CVS, Walgreens, Walmart or Costco," explains Marron. "They slap their own labels onto products. For example, Walgreen's sells its own version of Similasan's line of products for everything from ear pain, pink eye, to nerve pain relief. These same retailers also sell the items in the pharmacy aisles of their stores, which tends to mislead people about the science behind the products. Adding to the confusion, Amazon sells homeopathic remedies such as Boiron on its online site in the capacity of middle man."

Another bone of contention with Marron is the number of online commercial sites that dupe the public. For instance, "The Facts about Human Growth Hormone," which is sponsored by VesPro Life Sciences, is a typical example of a homeopathic scam: it presents the consumer with "facts" in an attempt to sell its "fountain of youth" products but there is no scientific evidence or clinical studies, in fact no research whatsoever to back these "facts."

Currently, Marron and the Natural and Homeopathic Consumer Advocates at his firm are reviewing a number of homeopathic product claims where consumers allege they have been misled. "Many of these companies may be extraterritorial, meaning that they may not fall within our jurisdiction so that is one avenue we are investigating first," says Marron.

If you have been exposed to Natural Homeopathic medicines, remedies or supplements by companies that allegedly make false or misleading claims, or engage in false or deceptive advertising of their products, you may want to take legal action.
