Within Australia Homeopathy is classified as a traditional medicine that may be used in conjunction with other medicines.

Homeopathic preparations in Australia are regulated as low risk therapeutic products. They are classified by regulators as those being subject to the manufacturing process called potentisation which is often referred to as serial dilution and succussion. Homeopaths also may utilise therapeutic substances that are not classified as homeopathic preparations but are prescribed according to homeopathic principles.

Homeopathic preparations manufactured beyond 1000 fold dilutions and supplied over the counter are not generally required to be listed on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) but some are depending on the source substance. They are classified under Complementary Medicines as outlined in the document ARGCM which is available on the TGA website.

Many homeopathic preparations have a traditional evidence base listed in published traditional sources with over 75 years history. For example Hering Guiding Symptoms 10 Volumes first published from 1879 to 1891. Boericke Materia Medica first published in 1901. Some critics argue that the 200 years of published worldwide experience accumulated about the use of homeopathic preparations by Doctors does not provide a suitable scientific platform and hence in Australia such documentation is termed Traditional.

The history of the low risk associated with homeopathic preparations generally has a 200 year basis of clinical, traditional, worldwide historical use. Homeopathic preparations are generally suitable for use by most people. From this long history of low risk use, it can be assessed as unlikely that a person will suffer from any serious adverse effects from using a homeopathic preparation now and also probably into the future. However, current knowledge may change.

Oral spray preparations prescribed and supplied by me contain neutral cane alcohol. This fulfils an important function as a natural stabilizer and preservative that assists storage life. The alcohol content per one spray dose is approximately 0.027 grams. (As a comparison a slice of brown bread can contain 0.1g to 0.2g of alcohol). The product should only be administered therapeutically as prescribed according to the directions for use and in the properly controlled dose quantity. The administration of a therapeutic product containing alcohol in this small dose is low risk. Homeopathic preparations are generally suitable for people of all ages including pregnant women and may be used in conjunction with other medicines and in sport.

The label information provides the homeopathic preparation ingredient names as required by the TGA and listed within Australian authorized names where such a designation exists. For example: Chamomile is listed as Matricaria recutita; Calcarea ostrearum carbonica is listed as Oyster shell and is commonly known as Calc carb; St Johns Wort is listed as Hypericum perfolatum with the statement STJOHN. Sabadilla is listed as Schoenocaulon officinale (Sabad). These are just some examples. Generally, homeopathic ingredients may be known by several different names, some common, some Latin, some taxonomical, some foreign language, some historical. Homeopathic preparation names are followed by a number and letter which is the potentisation designation associated with homeopathic manufacture.

Homeopathic products and ingredients that I supply are manufactured by and sourced from a variety of manufacturers in Australia and New Zealand who may also source ingredients from other suppliers from around the world.
