KEEP CRITICAL MEDICATIONS AVAILABLE AND AFFORDABLE: SAVE COMPOUNDED MEDICATIONS!
SEE BELOW FOR SUGGESTED DONATION AMOUNTS AND MORE INFORMATION
Compounded medications are used to treat a wide range of conditions, from chronic pain, gastrointestinal disorders, Meniere’s Disease, and psoriasis to Lyme disease, Celiac disease and Parkinson’s. These medications can also save lives – such as the use of DMPS in curing patients of lead and mercury poisoning, when no FDA-approved chelation drug has demonstrated similar success.
If you or a loved one suffers from one of the conditions listed above or if you are a physician or pharmacist who relies on compounded medications to treat patients, please consider supporting our cause!
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP RIGHT NOW
Compounded medications are at risk of being banned by the FDA and its Pharmacy Compounding Advisory Committee – even though these compounded drugs have been used safely for decades. There is an immediate need to respectfully dispute these FDA actions through education, as well as prepare and enact administrative and legal strategies. We have retained an attorney with expertise in FDA matters as well as recruited subject matter experts. To do all of this, though, we need donations from people like you. We cannot do this alone. Otherwise, we will lose access to these critical medications.
While the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP) and supporting organizations scored a victory this past June with a successful defense of DMPS, many compounds – including MSM, curcumin, boswellia, germanium, and acetyl-l-carnitine – are being put on the FDA's "do not compound" list. The fate of many more, such as glutiathone, methylcobalamin, and calcium EDTA, remains up in the air.
When these compounds are not available, the cost for alternative drugs can be A LOT more expensive for health care providers and patients.
See the video above for more information about why we need your help.

Compounds are administered not only by integrative physicians but by ophthalmologists, allergists, dentists, dermatologists, OB-GYNs, urologists, podiatrists, even veterinarians. Compounded medications have a significant role to play in vitamin and mineral replacement therapy, in hormone replacement therapy, and in boosting patients’ immune system function. Hospitals use compounded drugs to a considerable extent, especially for intravenous therapy. And compounded medications are known to save lives – such as in curing patients of lead and mercury poisoning when no FDA-approved chelation drug has demonstrated similar success.
In a recent survey by AANP, 36% of the naturopathic doctors (NDs) responding say they treat their patients with safely compounded medications. Menopause is the condition most frequently treated, followed by hypothyroidism and hormone imbalance. Compounded medications are also used by NDs to treat chronic pain and fibromyalgia, low testosterone, chronic fatigue and adrenal deficiency, as well as various autoimmune diseases.
Alan Dumoff, JD, has been retained as the lead attorney expert in these matters.
