Joette Calabrese A Homeopathic Antibiotic Alternative


I’m sure to those of you who have followed me for a long time, I sound like a broken record on the topic of antibiotics.

I’ve written about their dangers countless times

I’ve warned about the fallout from willy-nilly antibiotic use — the side effects, the recurrent infections, the seemingly unrelated “whack-a-mole” conditions that arise just when we think we have one thing cured.

But equally as important, I’ve warned of an impending reduction of the effectiveness of standard, first-line antibiotics. I cautioned that this could lead to the routine use of more and more powerful, dangerous antibiotics — and eventually they may not work anymore either!

Maybe, years ago that didn’t sway you. You might have rolled your eyes and said, “Oh, Joette. I’m not convinced it’s quite that bad.”

Sure, until recently, many dismissed this as “alternative” thinking.

Not anymore.

Now, my warnings have gone mainstream because the situation has become dire.

I urge you to take a moment to read this article from The New York Times: Urinary Tract Infections Affect Millions. The Cures Are Faltering.

Allopathy’s disrespect and cavalier overuse of a sharp lifesaving tool have resulted in its blunting.

Read that title again out loud: “The Cures Are Faltering!”

Doesn’t hearing that make your ears prick up?

As medical doctors research common infections — such as UTIs discussed in this article — cultures prove that the usual first-line antibiotics are ineffectual against these bacteria. Before treatment, lab cultures are quickly becoming required for each patient to determine which — if any — available antibiotic will work on their infections.

What does this cost? Money and time! Valuable time.

During a protracted period of testing or trial and error, UTI infections go unchecked — potentially leading to more severe kidney infections, blood infections.

This is not a laughing matter. This is not fake news. This is all too real.

From the article: “Next time,” Dr. Barcelos said, “I’m going to ask them to do a culture right away. For eight days I was taking antibiotics that weren’t working for me.”

Can you imagine going eight days with no treatment for a quickly developing UTI?

I can’t.

It should cause deep concern for society at large — especially for the allopathic community —

because they have not developed a deep understanding of the antibiotic alternatives offered by homeopathy.

My students rarely look to an antibiotic as their first line of treatment.

For UTIs, they’ve come to depend on Cantharis 30 which I discussed in Podcast 81: Ladies Only. Generally, Cantharis is used every few hours, depending on the severity. If it’s very troublesome, it might be used every 15 minutes for the first hour — then every few hours as the condition improves.

For more severe cases, my students may refer to my previous blog post, Recurring UTIs and Antibiotics: Stop the Cycle, in which I discuss an additional Banerji Protocol.

But a podcast and a blog post do not an education make! Indeed, I try to provide as much help as I can in these short lessons. But I don’t have enough time or space in these forums to teach you the intricacies of homeopathy’s antibiotic alternatives. And now that the landscape of allopathic medicine has changed — those alternatives are becoming necessities!

Consider my course, The Antibiotic Alternative: Practical, Proven Homeopathic Protocols.

Look, I do believe there is a place for antibiotics — held in reserve for life-threatening situations when there is absolutely no knowledge of homeopathy. 

It is imperative you do your part to stop this madness. Be at the ready.. As always, you will be the hero — to yourself, your family, and probably, to your doctor.

Let me be your guide. I urge you to consider The Antibiotic Alternative now.

The time for study is not when a problem is at hand…  when time is of the essence.  Study now — while your mind and body are unfettered and ready to absorb this information?

Be prepared.

Especially in light of this New York Times’ article, please pass on the good news of homeopathy — as our “alternatives” quickly become necessities.

P.S. Quick note to my Mighties: be on the lookout for this week’s Memo to Mighty Members. In it, I’ll continue this discussion with additional homeopathic protocols used to address UTIs. I’m sure you’ll find it to be a very helpful resource.



I am a homeopath with a worldwide practice working with families and individuals via Zoom. I'm also a teacher and most importantly, a mom who raised my now-adult children depending on homeopathy over the last 31 years. I lived decades of my life with food intolerances, allergies, and chemical sensitivities until I was cured with homeopathy, so I understand pain, anxiety, and suffering. You may feel that your issues are more severe or different than anyone else’s, but I have seen it all in my practice and in my work in India. My opinion is that nothing has come close to the reproducible, safe and effective results that my clients, students and I have achieved with homeopathy.

Call today and learn how homeopathy might just be the missing piece in your health strategy.

Joette is not a physician and the relationship between Joette and her clients is not of prescriber and patient, but as educator and client. It is fully the client's choice whether or not to take advantage of the information Joette presents. Homeopathy doesn't "treat" an illness; it addresses the entire person as a matter of wholeness that is an educational process, not a medical one. Joette believes that the advice and diagnosis of a physician is often in order.

    Germ Theory is false. We are all suffering from toxic poisoning to one degree or another. We need to approach healing with that in mind. You can’t “catch” a cold or flu and certainly not this because viruses aren’t contagious. They aren’t anything more than exosomes or cell debris.

  2. Rachel says:

    During the pregnancy of my 3rd child, I went through weeks of fighting off an awful UTI. After exhausting every natural remedy I could find, I ended up taking 2 rounds of antibiotics (which- as you referenced above- didn’t solve the issue, either.) Later, I found your website and got very interested in homeopathy. During my 5th pregnancy, the UTI /Interstitial Cystitis problem came back again. I tried Medorrhinum 200— BAM! Two days and I was symptom-free. HALLELUJAH! What a Godsend! Thanks for sharing that gem of a protocol!

  3. Kate says:

    The NY Times article link goes to an ad video for Joette’s courses.

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

      yikes! getting my team on it now. thanks

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

        It’s been corrected. Thanks for the heads up.

  4. Donna says:

    The link for “Recurring UTI’s and Antibiotics: Stop the Cycle” does not work, and I can’t find this blog post by searching for it. Is there a corrected link?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH says:

      When I just keyed in that title on my browser along with JoetteCalabrese it works for me.

  5. Julia Tallent says:

    I am unable to find the article/post on recurring UTI’s and antibiotics: stop the cycle. I have tried following the link, bookmark I saved previously, and typing it into my browser and nothing is working. I need this protocol. 2 rounds of dangerous cipro and whatever I have is resistant. I did go ahead and order Medorrhinum 200 and am praying it works!

      1. Donna says:

        When I do what you said, I get an error “Page not found” and it just takes me to your home page. I have tried the same things as Julia In the next comment. When I click on the link you provided to her, I get the same result (Page not found and it takes me to your home page). Not sure why it works for you and not for some others! Thanks for your help though.

        1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH says:

          Instead of using the link, write out the title: “Private: Recurring UTI’s and Antibiotics: Stop the Cycle,Joette Calabrese”.

          1. Donna says:

            I copied and pasted exactly what you said excluding the quotes, and the article showed up in my search results, but when I clicked on it, it only took me to your home page. I tried a couple of different browsers with no luck. Thank you for trying to help!.

          2. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH says:

            I’m sorry this is happening to you, but I’ve had my assistant do the same and it works for her as well.
            May I suggest that should you be interested, do consider either one of my online courses “Antibiotic Alternative” or “Feminopathy” where I cover this condition fully?

            When it’s a simple matter of sudden acute (not chronic repetition over the years) it can be super easy using only a protocol. But if it’s a repetitive problem with a history of antibiotic treatment in the past, it’s often not a matter of only using the protocol but case management.

  6. Donna says:

    Again, thank you so much again for your quick responses, Joette. I was actually trying to help a lady who is in the Gateway I group that I am leading because she tried the protocol you had on that post using Staphysagria and she wanted to review the blog again and could not find it as well. I actually own both Feminopathy and Antibiotic Alternative, so I can help her that way instead.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH says:

      Actually, I just learned that there is indeed a reason you can’t access that particular blog post. I was searching for it from the administrative side of the blog. From the public side We took it down for shall I say, political reasons.
      Times are a-changing. The less I put out to the general public, the better.

      1. Donna says:

        Mystery solved, albeit for very sad reasons. I am SO thankful that we have you to teach us how to use homeopathy in a practical, usable way that we can pass on to others. I tried for years to understand classical on my own so I could use it for my family with no success until the Lord brought me to you. Thank you, Joette! <3

        1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH says:

          I know the feeling. Classical is a quagmire.
