And we’re proud of it. Right?
The medicine we count on and adore is like a Mendelssohn symphony or a Cole Porter lyric — compared to drugs that are more akin to acid rock (excuse my critical bias).
Our medicine doesn’t slap the sufferer across the face. Instead, it politely and intelligently nudges the whole body.
So, when a guest sneaks a peek into your medicine cabinet, they won’t discover drug addictions and synthetic compliancy. No. Your medicine cabinet will reveal a discerning lifestyle. One that is educated … curated.
William Osler, M.D. (one of the founding members of Johns Hopkins) once said, “The person who takes medicine must recover twice; once from the disease and once from the medicine.”
Three generations have fallen for the complacency shrouding allopathic drug use, without giving a thought to the short or long-term effects.
But not us. We’re different.
Maybe we need to leave our medicine cabinets slightly ajar — encouraging our curious guests to take a peek inside.
What might they be looking for? More often than not, the perpetually curious want to know how you deal with the same aches and discomforts they deal with.
Indeed, the one thing we all share in common is pain!
Perhaps they’re sneaking a peek to see what keeps the pep in your step.
Or maybe they wonder if you use the same big-box-store-sized, extra-strength pain reliever they use.
Or they’re just curious whether you have bottle after bottle of prescription drugs you rely on.
However, it's possible they’re not nosey at all; they simply have a headache and are looking to find relief inside that small mirrored door.
Imagine their surprise when all they see in your medicine cabinet is homeopathy!
“What’s this?” they’ll think to themselves as they examine the little blue and purple tubes more closely. “Symphytum 200 and Rhus tox 30? I wonder what this is for?”
Hopefully, they’ll ask you. Because we homeopathy users love to share our knowledge and help friends when we can.
While they might be embarrassed to admit they were poking around your medicine cabinet, now they can excuse themselves with, “Hey, the door was already open!”
(Of course, that’s why you left the door a wee bit ajar in the first place — encouraging them to look! But let’s keep that our little secret.)
So, answer their questions!
This is a very common type of headache. Should your curious guest be suffering from one, what a great opportunity to share your homeopathic medicine with them!
Demonstrate how to extract one dose from each tube or bottle (the proper number of pillules constituting a dose is indicated on the manufacturer’s label).
Show them how to place each medicine — together, in this case — into a clean mouth. That is, with no food remaining from the last meal consumed.
Then allow the medicines to act.
In an acute situation, such as a tension headache of this sort, they may need to repeat the medicine as often as every 15 minutes for up to four doses — depending on the severity of the pain — until very much better.
But often in my experience, one dose can reduce their headache from a scream to a whimper.
If they don’t have a headache, if they were just being — okay, I’ll just call it what it is — nosey, then send them home with a few doses for next time!
Headaches involving the neck and shoulders are so universal, chances are they’ll eventually have the occasion to employ this protocol.
Homeopathy is a medicine for those who have had it with traditional drugs and for the curious.
And who is more curious than someone who surreptitiously pokes around in your medicine cabinet?
Chances are they will take to it like a duck to water.
So, be proud of your medicine cabinet!
It represents you at your most educated and discerning best.
Use it as a springboard to turn friends and relatives on to this gobsmacking medicine.
What better way to pass on the good news of homeopathy?!
P.S. Now that you have your medicine-cabinet-investigator intrigued, why not ask them if they’d like to join you in a Study Group to learn all the other illnesses that homeopathy treats?
My Gateway to Homeopathy: A Guided Study Group Curriculum is the perfect environment for them to learn how to break their ties with allopathic drugs.
In fact, why not lead your own group? Leading a small group locally or virtually is the best way to grow your knowledge.
So consider gathering your friends and loved ones (and maybe even a few like-minded individuals from my Facebook page, Joette’s Study Groups: Find Your New Study Group Friends) and allow the curriculum to do the rest!
You’ll have access to easy-to-follow lessons, videos and discussion points — all for less than the cost of a dinner out.
And, if you ask me, knowledge is more delicious than any dinner! As I always say, “Homeopathy, it's deliciously intellectual!”
