FDA Enforcement Policy Declares Homeopathic Remedies Illegal
That’s right: in one fell swoop, the FDA has declared that virtually every single homeopathic drug on the market is being sold illegally.

In the guidance, the FDA says:
Any homeopathic drug that has not been considered “generally recognized as safe and effective” (GRAS/E) is considered a new drug;
FDA has not determined that any homeopathic drugs are GRAS/E;
A new drug cannot be marketed unless it goes through the FDA’s approval process;
No homeopathic drugs have gone through FDA approval nor can any producer afford to take them through the approval process.
Drug Products Labeled as Homeopathic Guidance for FDA Staff and Industry
The FDA wants to regulate and enforce actions against homeopathic products intended to be used for the prevention or treatment of serious and/or life-threatening diseases and conditions, e.g., cancer, heart disease and opioid addiction.
