Stemming from Hahnemann’s experiments, homeopathy went on to become a predominant form of medical treatment used by physicians worldwide. As recently as 1998, the World Health Organization recognized homeopathy as one of the systems of traditional medicine that should be integrated with conventional medicine to ensure adequate health care*. Today, there are hundreds of homeopathic OTC products found in drug stores, grocery stores, health food stores and mass merchandisers.
Similasan products are reviewed and regulated by Health Canada to make sure that they are safe and that each product’s claims are supported, so that Canadians can safely use them to maintain and improve their health.
