An advertisement for the ChinaMed Anti-Imflamm. Formula product, which we published on this website, should not have been published.

In the advertisement we unlawfully made claims that the Anti-Inflamm. Formula was indicated for acute infections and inflammatory conditions, including conjunctivitis, otitis media, nasal furuncle, furuncle in the external auditory canal, acute hepatitis, acute cholecystitis, herpes zoster, herpes simplex, vaginitis, vulvitis, leucorrhoea, prostatitis, orchitis, urinary tract infection, pelvic inflammation), hypertension, migraine headaches, intercostal neuralgia, Meniere’s disease.

A complaint about the advertisement was recently upheld by the Complaints Resolution Panel. We provided no evidence to support the claims we made about the product’s effects, and the Panel found that the claims were unlawful, misleading, and unverified and breached the Therapeutic Goods Advertising Code.

The Panel therefore requested that the Wing Hing Chinese Herb Acupuncture & Foods Centre publish this retraction.
