I am pleased to introduce a guest post by Joette Calabrese. Those of you who are members of the Weston A Price Foundation will recognize her from the Wise Traditions Journal. I’ve always enjoyed reading her articles (which you can read at westonaprice.org) and so was very happy to have her do a guest post for us introducing us to homeopathy. I am especially glad to have her share as I consider myself no experiment in this area. However, my naturopath has used them with my daughter and me, and I have seen some amazing results. There are many different opinions in regard to homeopathy and you are welcome to add your thoughts, experience, and questions below. Thanks Joette!
Do you clamor for simple, inexpensive, cartel-free medicine? …….Medicine of the values
I did. But it wasn’t until after suffering from chronic fatigue, debilitating allergies and
anxiety attacks, that I found this genuine medicine. How unlike my ancestors, I was!
My Sicilian grandmothers believed you went to the hospital to die. They birthed their
babies at home, treated colds and flu’s with a good dose of sweat, sleep and garlic and
nursed their big families through many ills without the aid of doctors, clinics, hospitals
As for me, after relying too long on modern day McMedicine, I finally grasped that
drugs dole out detrimental side effects that made me sick.
The reason for this is that they suppress our body’s ability to address the problem and
drive the disease to a deeper level.
Yes, conventional drugs cause illness instead of removing it.
So, how could I re-gain robust health and confidently treat my family, while avoiding the
dangers of drugs?
The answer was simple.
I learned homeopathy.
I came to this by way of my illness and I finally realized that the only person looking out
for my family and me is Me!
The human body is a miraculous machine. It’s capable of great resilience and healing
ability, often in spite of our abuses. Once I experienced the gentle, yet powerful curative
action of homeopathy, I was hooked.
At first, I learned enough to treat my family with homeopathy and then I committed to
going to school to become a homeopath.
Now I’ve been helping others for over 16 years, I’ve been able to bring robust health to
my family and teach others how to do the same.
We’re a drug-free family. No, I don’t mean we sometimes use them, I mean that my
family of 5 has never ever used an antibiotic, analgesics or any other allopathic drug in
over 24 years!
Bronchitis? No problem: Antimonium tart.
Knee injury? Why, it’s just Arnica montana.
It’s often that easy.
I want all moms to be hooked! Because whoever you are, you too, can cure your family
And you will not be alone. Homeopathy is used throughout the world by millions:
doctors, hospitals, monasteries, moms at home and all those are who tired of
medications that only and most certainly cause further ailments.
So what is homeopathy? It’s a well-established form of medicine, dating back to an 18th
century. It’s based on the principle called the “Law of Similars”, that “like heals like”.
It’s simple. If a substance, poison ivy, for example, causes a certain type of rash for
a healthy person, then homeopathic poison ivy, Rhus tox (which is a highly diluted
and concussed version), can bring about a cure for a sick person who is experiencing
a similar rash. So, it’s a perfect choice for similar illnesses such as chicken pox or an
Like heals like.
The compelling premise behind homeopathy is that there is a mechanism in each of us
which is capable of coming to balance if given the correct stimulus. This is achieved by
using a homeopathic remedy that is chosen not for the disease, but rather the person
who is experiencing the disease.
Homeopathy treats the individual and not the pathology.
Symptoms are the outward expression on the inner disease; hence, symptoms are of
value in determining the remedy. And once the symptoms are gathered, a remedy is
chosen using the symptoms as indicators. You don’t treat the symptoms. You don’t
manage illness, you resolve it.
Another way to put it? You cure the person. You uproot the propensity for the return of
Moreover, it’s inexpensive medicine.
So, if you pride yourself in being frugal, tenacious and autonomous, if you love being
in control of taking care of your family’s well being, if you get a thrill out of learning
a skill that will serve you and your family for generations, then this medicine, called
homeopathy, is the method of care for you.
I have too much information to keep to myself.
Stay close by and I’ll teach as much as I can about what I’ve learned.
