When the call came, I quickly gathered my red Top 100 Remedy kit, a couple of my homeopathy books, a Ball canning jar of my bone broth and off I went.
After administering a few different remedies from my kit, I finally fell asleep in the chair by his bed.
The reason I could fall asleep was that, after six hours, a few missteps and finally the correct remedy, my son, was enough improved that he, too, fell asleep and the worst of his illness was over.
It should be noted that I was able to try a few different remedies because I had my kit.
There is nothing like having healing at your arm’s length.
It was my kit, my son, and me. (A few prayers too.)
I’ll be honest, homeopathy requires some practice and patience, my friends.
But the ONLY way to develop that skilled hand is by practicing, and you can only practice if you have the right tool — a remedy kit and a course of books from which to refer.
So, to answer the oft-asked question, “Why do I need a remedy kit?” consider these reasons:
1. Having a kit in your house is convenient.
Illness never comes at convenient times, and emergencies, by definition, are unexpected. Having to wait 4-5 days until the needed remedy arrives from the pharmacy will feel like an eternity!
Make your life easier by having a kit safely placed in your linen closet, ready to help your family.
2. Owning a kit is not worth its weight in gold … it’s worth more.
Whether you’re traveling, moving to a new place, or perhaps it’s just the survivalist in you wanting to be ready for anything life throws at you, having a kit empowers you to come to the rescue in the blink of an eye.
Homeopathy is not supplementary or complementary. It is THE medicine to have at your fingertips.
3. Having a kit saves you money.
Purchasing remedies a la carte at a health food store can run around $9 per remedy, (already a super bargain) and to order online with shipping included is easily $16 (still a bargain). However, when you invest (and I don’t use this word loosely) in a 100-remedy kit, the cost is under $3.00 per bottle! (The ultimate bargain.)
4. A homeopathy kit is a lifelong investment.
Those of you who have been reading my blog will remember my remedy kit from 1918 — and the fact that I can still use it!
Homeopathic medicines do not expire when you care for them properly.
A homeopathy kit is an investment that sticks. No more cleaning out your medicine cabinets and finding expired Tylenol — and a list of side effects down the drain! (Watch out for water wildlife!)
Your kit will become a prized possession.
5. Having a kit allows you to bless the lives of others.
Having a kit allows you to help others who aren’t prepared.
Consider the story of my student whose neighbor’s daughter was stung by a bee while at a play date. Her neighbor came knocking, and this mother was able to administer Apis mellifica 30, every few minutes which eased the little girl’s pain and decreased swelling at the site of the sting.
To have a kit and use it to bless the lives of others is charity personified.
A Final Word
Let me explain why you need a kit to handle acute issues. Chronic illness often originates from health problems that were inappropriately treated acute conditions. Inappropriate treatment usually means the use of drugs.
Should you be interested, take a look at my online course and hefty reference book, How to Raise a Drug-Free Family.
Know how to treat those acute (short-term) illnesses such as ear infections, strep throat and injuries and you’ll not subject your children to steroids, antibiotics and analgesics.
Become the ambassador for your family’s health.
Up your pledge to this powerful medicine.
5 Reasons and 5 Homeo-tips
Because I don’t like to leave you without a tip to fast forward the use of your remedies, here’s this week’s tip:
Hepar sulph in 6, 30 or 200 is one of my all-time favorite remedies for soft tissue infections. Here are some examples:
Dental abscess? Hepar sulph 6, twice daily, until better
Sore throat? Hepar sulph 30 every 3 hours, until better
Now stay home and cure your family.
