Clarification on Homeopathic Medicines and Radiation Exposure

|

We realize the current radiation scare related to the nuclear plant accident in Japan may prompt some questions about the homeopathic medicines Radium bromatum and Kali iodatum. The homeopathic preparations of Radium bromatum 12X and above and Kali iodatum 1X and above are included in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS) and may be sold for over-the-counter indications such as those found on our labels. Radium bromatum HPUS is labeled for itching or lumbar pains.* Kali iodatum HPUS is labeled for colds with frontal sinus pain.* Radium bromatum HPUS (the homeopathic preparation of Radium bromide) and other homeopathic preparations are not intended for, or appropriate to be used for, accidental and widespread airborne radiation exposure. Kali iodatum HPUS (the homeopathic preparation of Potassium iodide) should not be confused with the potassium iodide pills currently in the news for thyroid protection.
