Joette Calabrese, Practical Homeopathy® College Isn't for Everyone, Alternatives

Times are changing, my friends. Young adults are increasingly seeing less value in going to college.

And who can blame them?

The unemployment rate for recent college grads is now higher than for the general population.1 Couple that with the average student loan debt that well over half of graduates owe — anywhere from $32,714 to $59,701 per year — and opting out of traditional college starts to make sense. 

What demoralizing statistics!

However, just because attending a traditional four-year university is no longer a no-brainer, it doesn’t mean there aren’t alternatives.

Many Gen Z students are opting for trade schools.3,4,5 Vocational education has long been overlooked as a viable option. However, America needs skilled welders, plumbers, contractors and tradespeople. Thank goodness some are answering that call!

Yet, others who desire to serve humanity are now choosing a different path: The Academy of Practical Homeopathy®.

I’ve had quite a few young people in my Academy. These dedicated college-age students possessed an enthusiastic desire to continue learning but saw no value in a pricey liberal arts degree. Instead, they chose to benefit from the career opportunities that becoming a Practical Homeopath® can provide.

Now, don’t get me wrong. Plenty of Academy students simply want to understand my unique paradigm more deeply. They want the health autonomy and freedom their year-long study will provide them, their families and their loved ones.

Additionally, some of my Academy students are already practicing healthcare providers who want to offer Practical Homeopathy® in tandem with their existing field of expertise.

But I’m seeing young people increasingly turned off by traditional higher education in much the same way they are turned off by conventional medicine. That makes The Academy a perfect place for them to blossom and grow.

As compared to a conventional four-year college, one year spent in The Academy of Practical Homeopathy® can immediately offer two career alternatives:

 1. Opening a homeopathic consultation service

In addition to deep foundational information, my Academy students learn case-taking, protocols, and the analysis and selection of homeopathic medicines (along with their potency and frequency). Upon graduation, many of my graduates offer their own homeopathic expertise to others.  I know of no career better suited to serving one’s community. These students will feel the same purpose, passion and accomplishment I have felt over the last four decades.

Of course, this is not for everyone, so consider this…

 2. Teaching homeopathy

 Many of my graduates begin their careers as teachers. They do so via my time-proven, easy-to-follow, step-by-step business strategy blueprint, which I call the Ambassador Initiative. Even after graduation, all the tools and hands-on guidance ensure their classes are filled with eager students. 

Indeed, many Academy graduates are turning their new-found knowledge into careers. They’re bringing additional financial stability to their families and experiencing a quick return on their tuition investment.

My graduates are not experiencing employment rejections while paying off tens of thousands of dollars of student loans. They're taking control of their futures through the knowledge they’ve garnered in my Academy. Not only are they experiencing health freedom, but they are also creating employment freedom by becoming entrepreneurs!

You can, too.

If you have confidence in your ability, courage and faith in yourself, you can use the skills provided to create an exciting, autonomous future. Practical Homeopathy® is in demand today — worldwide. But we don’t have enough practicing Practical Homeopaths® to go around … yet.

Click here to join my Founders’ List to learn more about The Academy and how it may better fit your continuing education than English literature and art appreciation. There’s nothing wrong with those subjects — nothing at all. But there’s no reason to begin your adult life up to your eustachian tubes in debt for classes that likely won’t help you get a better job.

One year in The Academy — and if you so choose, perhaps another year in my graduate program, Mastery™ — and the world will be your oyster.

It’s up to you.

College isn’t for everybody, and frankly, neither is The Academy.

But if you have a burning desire to immerse yourself in one-of-a-kind practical knowledge that can help you, your family, your coffers and the world, then welcome home, my friend.

I’m here for you.

Pass on the good news of Practical Homeopathy®!

P.S. Even if you’re not ready to join The Academy this year, I urge you to join my Founders’ List anyway. At the very least, you’ll benefit from sneak peeks, videos and occasional live Q&As with me that can help you learn as you travel your homeopathic path at your own pace. Plus, your inclusion on the list will put you at the front of the line when subsequent years’ admissions open.

Joette laughingI 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.

    Arizona K-12 students who are not enrolled in public schools have access to the funds that would have otherwise been used for them. It is called the ESA scholarship. If you sign up to be a vendor, our kids can pay you through class wallet and go through the academy as part of their high school educations. Please consider doing this! Here is the link:


    My daughter wants to be a homeopathic practitioner for animals as an alternative to veterinary school. This would be a huge blessing for her!
