New Homeopathy (NHP) and homeopathic medicines are available in many different forms.
Some form of NHP is available in different formulations and has different health claims and risks.
Here are some common misconceptions about NHP.
NHP does not contain any harmful ingredients, it is not a treatment and it is NOT an alternative to conventional medicines.
In a recent interview, Dr. Robert W. Dennison of the Mayo Clinic discussed how he and his team of doctors have found NHP to be a safer alternative to the existing prescription drugs.
“We have found the efficacy of NMPs to be as low as 2 percent compared to the usual medications for patients with common cold symptoms,” he said.
A recent survey conducted by the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology found that almost half of all patients (47%) in the U.S. have taken NHP at least once, with the majority taking it for asthma.
The most commonly prescribed NHP over the last decade has been ascorbic acid.
This is a potent antioxidant, which is important for preventing oxidative damage in the body.
It is often combined with vitamin C to increase the protective effects of vitamin C. Dr. W. Bradford Wilcox, chief medical officer of AstraZeneca, said in 2016 that the company had invested $20 million in NHP and was “investing heavily in clinical trials.”
Dr J. Craig Venter, the CEO of Google, stated in an interview that he was investing $500 million to develop an NHP vaccine.
While NHP does contain some common allergens, like eggs and peanuts, it also contains some new allergens that are considered beneficial.
According to Dr. W., “the new ingredients in NMP are much safer and have fewer side effects than commonly prescribed drugs.”
Another common misconception about NMP is that NHP will be safe for people over age 65.
NPP is available to people over 65, but the number of people over this age group has remained low, according to Dr W. At this time, only about one in four people over 70 years of age are using NHP as a treatment for colds, according the American Society of Allergic Diseases.
Many of the newer NHP medications do not have the same benefits as the existing medications.
If you are over 65 and would like to try NHP, you can use the app on your Apple or Android device.

Apple has a Nepalese NHP medicine available on its App Store, but it is only for people with the following medical conditions: Asthma, COPD, COPS, Crohn’s Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, Neurological Disorders, Neurodegenerative Disease, Osteoporosis, Pregnancy, Pulmonary Disorders, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Surgical Conditions, Skin Conditions, and/or Stomach Conditions.
As of December 2018, there are about 1,700 NHP prescriptions in the US.
