BOOM! It’s Fourth of July! (I’m Not Scared, But Others Are!)

Joette Calabrese

Hi! Buster, the Bad Office Dog, here. My family and I want to wish you a very Happy Fourth of July!

But unfortunately, this holiday (especially tonight) can be a very stressful time for some of my friends. At our last Secret Dog Club meeting, after we finished sniffing each other, our first order of business was discussing fireworks.

While they don’t bother me, I discovered many of my friends are scared to death of them! And boy, you humans love your fireworks! (Personally, I don’t see what the attraction is. Watching squirrels is much more stimulating.)

A couple of my friends said when the fireworks start, they hide under the bed.

Quite a few of them jump up on their parents’ laps (and believe me, I don’t mean to be rude, but they aren’t all “lap-size”). And, this made me so sad, I heard several of them are usually left alone while their families go out to celebrate … so they just shiver and whimper alone.

So, what can their humans do?  Well, my mom, Joette, always has a homeopathic remedy or two up her sleeve that will help! (My mom is the best, don’t you think?) 

You may remember, I wrote a blog post a couple of years ago about my friend Gunner, who had a lot of anxiety.

He responded well to Argentum nitricum 200. But I overheard Mom say recently that Phosphorus 200 is really great during loud, frightening events like fireworks.

It can be given to us as needed, and also can be used as early as the night before — in preparation.

Phosphorus 200 is also effective for us during thunderstorms. Of course, I’m not really afraid of anything (except running out of snacks), but many other dogs are just as fearful of thunder as they are of fireworks.

So, your small investment (under $10) in this remedy will bring your pet a wealth of security during both natural and man-made events.

Now, before I go, I bet I know what you’re thinking. You’re wondering about Eleanor Pigby, aren’t you? Well, this is her first Fourth of July. She told me she’s not sure what fireworks are, let alone if she’s afraid of them.

I guess we’ll find out soon. For right now, though, the only thing that makes her hide under the bed is any mention of “bacon.” 

Why on earth would anyone be afraid of bacon?

Anyway, Happy Fourth of July!  Enjoy your fireworks tonight! Enjoy your independence. And pass on the good news of homeopathy (especially Phosphorus).

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.

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.
