Homeopathic Medicine PAC

Homeopathic Medicine PAC

Political action committee dedicated to preserve, protect and defend the practice of homeopathic medicine in the United States

About Us

The Homeopathic Medicine PAC was first established as a Super PAC, the Super S.M.A.R.T. PAC (Specialized Medicine and Responsible Treatment PAC) in June 2017. In January 2022 it was converted into a Hybrid PAC, otherwise known as a Carey Committee, which is a political committee that maintains two segregated bank accounts. The first account is a "non-contribution account" that solicits and accepts unlimited contributions from individuals, corporations, labor organizations, and other political committees for the purpose of financing independent expenditures, other ads that refer to a federal candidate, and generic voter drives in federal elections. The second segregated account is subject to all the statutory amount limitations and source prohibitions, which permit it to make contributions directly to federal candidates and political committees.

The Homeopathic Medicine hybrid PAC is dedicated to preserving, protecting and defending the practice of homeopathic medicine in the United States of America. The Hybrid PAC complies with all Federal Election Committee Guidelines and filing requirements governing Carey Committees. According to the IRS, any contributions, donations or payments to a political action committee (PAC) are not tax-deductible.

National Survey Shows Strong Public Support
for Natural Health Options

Americans are more likely to support candidates who protect access to supplements, homeopathics and other natural remedies

Washington, D.C., Oct. 12, 2022 - A new national poll from a coalition of organizations with an interest in natural health, conducted by the Marist Poll, shows that 70% of Americans are more likely to support a congressional candidate who will protect the public’s access to dietary supplements and other natural and homeopathic remedies. The Marist Poll, one of the first college-based public opinion polls in the United States, is highly respected, with an “A” rating from ABC News’ FiveThirtyEight.

“As the poll indicates, 61% of households use our products daily, and 75% use them at least monthly. The poll also shows overwhelming support for candidates for office who support access to these products. At a time when our industry is under attack at the state and federal level, data points like these demonstrate proposals to require pre-market approval or age restrict products are not mainstream,” said Daniel Fabricant, Ph.D. president and CEO of the Natural Products Association. “While our organizations have been successful in blocking these radical proposals, the job is not finished, and we look forward to our continued work taking our message directly to voters, ensuring elected officials know there will be consequences for not supporting the public’s access to our products.”

“The survey demonstrates that more and more Americans recognize the importance of dietary supplements and other natural options to maintain and regenerate their health,” says Gretchen DuBeau, Executive and Legal Director of the Alliance for Natural Health USA. “We hope Congress will listen to their constituents and support access to and information about these natural health options.”

“Americans are saying something very simple and clear about natural health: We want to have the choice,” says Paola Brown, President of Americans for Homeopathy Choice.

“These survey results make it clear that U.S. consumers rely on these natural health products, including homeopathic medicines,” said Peter Gold from the American Institute of Homeopathy, America’s oldest national medical society. “It is also clear that consumers will vote to protect their access.”

“This is a mandate from Americans that they want continued access to the health products of their choice,” says James Gormley, President of Citizens for Health, “and our elected representatives should take notice.”

The survey found that the use of supplements and other natural or homeopathic remedies is consistent across all demographic and partisan categories, as is support for congressional candidates who will protect consumer access to these products.

About the Poll:

The Marist Poll conducted this survey of 1,690 adults from September 27th through September 29th, 2022. Adults 18 years of age and older residing in the United States were contacted through a multi-mode design: By phone using live interviewers, by text, or online. The sampling frames include RDD plus listed landline, cell phone sample based on billing address to account for inward and outward mobility within a state, and aggregated online research panels. Survey questions were available in English or Spanish. Phone and online samples were selected to ensure that each region was represented in proportion to its population. The samples were then combined and balanced to reflect the 2020 American Community Survey 5-year estimates for age, gender, income, and race. Regional adjustments were made for turnout in similar elections. Results are statistically significant within ±4.0 percentage points. There are 1,562 registered voters. The results for this subset are statistically significant within ±4.2 percentage points. There are 1,293 registered voters who definitely plan to vote in November’s election. The results for this subset are statistically significant within ±4.6 percentage points. Tables include results for subgroups to only display crosstabs with an acceptable sampling error. It should be noted that although you may not see results listed for a certain group, it does not mean interviews were not completed with those individuals. It simply means the sample size is too small to report. The error margin was adjusted for sample weights and increases for cross-tabulations.
