One of my students, Annie, told me about a conversation she had with her 11 year old son, who had been suffering from repeated ingrown toenails. This took place about a year ago, before she found homeopathy.

“Just before bed he came to me with another sore, swollen toe. It was hot and painful. This was the 6th time in about 2 years that this toe was infected.

We started with antibiotic cream. This was followed by oral antibiotics. Each time, it returned months later over and again. Same foot. Same toe.”

Annie often refused antibiotics because ever since the first round, her son experienced diarrhea and some gut issues that lasted far beyond the time he took the drug.

So she decided to go back to using holistic means.

You know: Epsom salts, essential oils, peroxide, herbs, supplements and colloidal silver. This seemed to keep it at bay for a while each time but…

“I don’t know Mom; it seems to work only for as long as we keep using these methods.” Annie was fully aware of this, but it was all she had so she continued with her arsenal.

She and her son were dedicated to the task for weeks but after a particularly vigorous game of soccer, the toe seemed unable to recover.

Annie broke down again and took her son to a podiatrist.

“The only way is to surgically remove the nail, followed by antibiotic cream and I really think it’s best for him to take a daily dose of an oral antibiotic. I know you don’t want to do that but this antibiotic is a mild one.”

Mild? Annie wondered what that meant. Was he patronizing her, or was it really mild and therefore ineffective?

Each scenario made her mothering bone quiver.

Cornered, she reluctantly submitted her son to the surgery.

If you or anyone in your family has been afflicted by infected toenails, you know what I’m going to report next.

That’s right. The infection returned months later. Perhaps, it never went away in the first place.

Shortly after the infection that followed surgery, Annie began taking homeopathy more seriously. She studied and learned important protocols.

Many months later, Annie reported how her son’s toe was doing. She said that over a period of a few days, using homeopathy only, the redness and pain were greatly reduced and over a period of about a week, the nail bed looked normal.

So far, there’s been no recurrence of any infection and, of course, no antibiotic fall-out.

Just about this time, Annie went to a parent meeting at her son’s school where there was a new health program the district was employing.

Annie secretly wished they would teach the kids how to use homeopathy. Instead, the school health director was happy to announce that their reproductive education course would commence one year earlier. That meant that Annie’s son’s class would be getting their “health” class sooner than previous students had.

“And,” continued the director, “we’ll be focusing on how to protect themselves from sexually transmitted diseases”!!

That night, when Annie went home feeling shocked, disgusted and angry, she and her husband decided to home school their son.

A month later, she pulled her son out of school, bought a home school curriculum and began using my blog as the science block to teach her son how to treat himself.

“Remember how painful the infection on your toe was? I want you to write down the homeopathic medicines we employed so that you memorize them:

  1. Belladonna 30 for when there was severe pain and bright redness of the toe.  We used this every 3 hours for the first day, then only 2-3 times per day after that until it resolved. It took about 2 days for the pain to disappear.
  2. Hepar sulph 30 is what you took every 6 hours for the first day, followed by every 12 hours once things simmered down. That was over a period of a week.

Ok, now find it here in our homeopathy kit, and memorize it.”

Annie’s son kept a homeopathy journal of their cures. He started with his ingrown toenail and how he cured his grandma’s arthritis with the Banerji Protocol for the condition he learned from the blog.

By the end of the school year, Annie had taught her son plenty.

By the end of the school year, Annie had learned plenty.

Annie is now a full time, home-schooling mom. Her curriculum includes Latin (homeopathic medicines are in Latin, so this supports this subject further), math, writing, world history, and practical health via homeopathy.

She and her son learn useful, appropriate information that will serve them for a lifetime, not just until the “politically correct” rhetoric blows over.

This, my friends, is health. This is education.

Together, they make for a medical, educational and genuine lifestyle far superior to two limping, conventional paradigms.

    Good read! When I feel my ingrown toenails acting up….I start taking Silica. I’ve used it with other people too with great results!

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      There’s more than one way to skin a cat. I love hearing from those who have used other remedies to their benefit. Silica also has a good reputation for nail conditions and infections.

  2. Karen says:

    I love your homeschool discount! I’m seriously thinking about doing that – but, quite haven’t gotten there yet. I work from home as a Medical Coder for surgical centers – & see many people that could benefit from Homeopathy (& staying away from anti-biotics & Dr’s etc.) 🙂 I read somewhere once that “Surgery represents the tremendous technical achievements of orthodox medicine. Yet, it also demonstrates the inability to cure.”

  3. Shirley says:

    This is super! I home schooled my youngest through high school. He and I have never regretted it!

  4. Megan says:

    AWESOME. emailing this to my friend who homeschools and I will be send you a pics soon !!!! just what I plan to teach. Homeopathy and basic body make up.
    NOT general med science lies and brainwashing like food perimed. sp. hey I read dyslexia is yet anouther side effect of vacs.

  5. Debbi Osganian says:

    Thank you, such good timing! My daughter has ingrown toenail on one foot and what looks like athlete’s foot between toes on the other. Would this remedy work for both? Thx in advance.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      THis protocol is specific for infections such as bacterial, not fungal.

  6. Meredith Thomas says:

    Thanks for the great post, Joette. My son, now 25, suffered from ingrown toenails infrequently as he grew up. But when they came they hurt so much! Although the toenail was ingrown, and causing swelling around the nail, and super-tender, it never looked infected. It looked more like a ‘foreign body’ reaction. Do you know what I mean? Like the in-growing of the nail caused pain, but no sign of redness or pus or other infective sign. It stumped me. Last time, a year ago, we used Silica 200 2D to get a positive response (6x and 30c didnt touch it) but also Hypericum 200 for the super-sensitive pain. It took more than two weeks. I have wondered if I should have tried something for infection anyway.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      Hepar sulph is certainly used for infections, but sometimes its needed only for pain. Having said this, your choice of Silica was a good one. If using 30, it ought to be given every few hours or so.

    2. Julie says:

      How often did you use Silica 200?

      1. Meredith Thomas says:

        He took it once a day I think., maybe twice a day as you would in a Banerji protocol.

  7. Meredith Thomas says:

    I meant to add, Hurry for homeschooling! We homeschooled our four children right into college. What a great experience. I highly recommend it for families along with homeopathy. It was also our treatment of choice for most of our illnesses and “hurties”.

  8. Shirley says:

    Thank you Meredith for sharing this and thank you Joette for all that you share with us! You are a gift!

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      Its my pleasure, Shirley. Pls pass on the good word of homeopathy.

      1. Shirley says:

        I am and will continue! 🙂
