Folk medicine, healing

Folk medicine and homeopathy can be advertised in Yandex Direct.

Your ads and landing page must meet all legal requirements. For example, your ads must not:

  • Contain expressions of gradititude from customers.

  • Contain references to specific cases of people recovering or their health improving.

  • Contain links to therapeutic effects regarding diseases that are resistant or difficult to treat.

  • Give the impression that the consumer does not need to consult with a doctor.

Your ads must meet the legal requirements of the countries where you want to serve them.

You must indicate in your ad or on your site the place in which services are offered – the license to practice folk medicine is only valid within the territory of the executive authority which issued it.

According to the law “On advertising” and Yandex placement policy, certain documents must be provided.

When to submit documents

You can send documents at any time after your ads have been sent for moderation. If ads are rejected because required documents are missing, they will be reviewed again after documents are submitted. If your ads pass moderation, they will be eligible for serving. If additional information is required, we will contact you.

Required documents
  • A copy of the permit to practice folk medicine, issued by the executive organ of the Russian Federation concerning the sphere of public health.

Advertising of alternative medicine must not mention medical services. If the ad materials mention medical services offered, the documents listed in the Medical services section are required.

If you advertise products and services in several categories (for example, healing and dietary supplements), you must provide documents for each of them.
