Review clears Universal Medicine
THE Therapeutic Goods Administration has wound up a review of Goonellabah-based health group Universal Medicine, saying it is now in compliance of the Therapeutic Goods Act.
Concerns about the organization were raised last month with questions over some of its practices such as "esoteric" massage and healing, which the organisation's website claims "brings the arrest of the ill energy that is causing the ill Will".
"It is the Will or, range of choices that one makes, that needs to be healed, if what lays at hand is a condition that needs healing. But, no Will can be changed or altered if the energy entering the body is not changed," the website says.
A spokeswoman for the Therapeutic Goods Administration said the TGA had worked with Universal Medicine and it was "now compliant" with laws surrounding the claims made by the organisation and the goods sold.
The spokeswoman said Universal Medicine's website now mentioned only one product as a therapeutic good, and that was listed on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods.
That product was sold only by retail and the organisation made no health claims about it or anything else on their website.
"They are now in compliance with the regulatory requirements of the Therapeutic Goods Act," the spokeswoman said.
