ASA (Advertising Standard Agency), is trying to limit the scope of natural health practitioners, not allowing to use terms such as therapy, diagnostic, treatment, etc, or claim to treat medical conditions. However natural therapies are the ones likely to help most of conditions with the least, if any, side effects. Consumers when unsure are easily tricked by the media. Now an investigation on ASA has been called. Watch this video and please sign the petition www.asa-the-truth.org.uk
