Confusion Over Homeopathic Medicines in Alexa Ray Joel's Hospitalization Clarified by the American Association of Homeopathic Pharmacists (AAHP)
Date:12/9/2009

PORTLAND, Ore., Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Media stories of the reported suicide attempt of Alexa Ray Joel, the 23 year-old daughter of pop star Billy Joel and supermodel Christie Brinkley, have made undocumented connections to this week's incident and a homeopathic medicine. The American Association of Homeopathic Pharmacists (AAHP), representing the major manufacturers and distributors of homeopathic drugs, offers clarification to consumers and healthcare professionals on the safety of homeopathy medicines.

More than 200 years of successful medical use throughout the world has provided a strong basis of proof for the safety and usefulness of homeopathic medicines. In the U.S., homeopathic medications are regulated by the FDA and have been used safely since before the passage of the 1938 federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Homeopathic medicines have an extraordinary record of safety.

Breaking stories about Ms. Joel's hospitalization mentioned both sleeping pills and a homeopathic medicine, Traumeel®. Traumeel is indicated for muscular pain, joint pain, sports injuries and bruising. It was incorrectly reported that Traumeel is an antihistamine. Furthermore, during its long history and strong safety record, Traumeel has not been associated with overdoses or dangerous side effects.

Prescribed by hundreds of thousands of physicians throughout the world, homeopathy is one of the most widely practiced medical therapies worldwide. One of the major advantages to this system of medicine is its safety.

About the AAHP: Founded in 1923, the AAHP is a not-for-profit corporation of the State Commonwealth of Virginia, representing the interests of homeopathic manufacturers, distributors, and individual pharmacists in cooperative efforts with regulatory agencies and other organizations nationally. The AAHP functions as a trade association within the homeopathic pharmaceutical industry to represent the opinions and interests of homeopathic product manufacturers and distributors, the FDA, other regulatory agencies and other trade associations. In addition, the association promotes high standards in manufacturing and distributing, communicates regulatory changes to member companies through a regular newsletter, and promotes professional communications, education, and research within the homeopathic community.
