Back in July, Boots had been promoting Nelson's Sulphur 30c homeopathic remedies, alongside a pdf to download to help you choose which homeopathic product you thought you needed, complete with therapeutic indications. (I hate it when I forget to cache a website that's being complained about. Never mind...)
After a complaint from this site, the MHRA contacted Boots and instructed them to change their website, using only the phrase
Nelsons Sulphur 30c Pillules is a homeopathic medicinal product without approved therapeutic indicationsaccording to the current legislation. Boots have since removed the product completely, however the Patient Guide to Homeopathy is still on the website. MHRA are now aware of this and so hopefully it too will disappear soon.
Not that it matters really, because Holland & Barrett are selling Nelson's Sulphur 30c pillules, complete with therapeutic indications, and completely contravening the law (original link to website here). The MHRA are now aware, and the offending site can be seen here.
Indeed, even Nelson's own site (original site here) deems itself above the law by claiming that the product is "known by homeopaths for its many skin benefits" which is woolly wording in my book, but we'll see what the MHRA do.
(Nelson's also promote the product with therapeutic indications on their Nelson's Homeopathy page here).
