Hepar Sulph: The Homeopathic Antibiotic?

I’m often asked if I had to choose the most important remedies to have on hand at all times, what they would be.
This is not difficult to determine, because the medicines that are most frequently used would fall into this category; the ones that are so effective, they cover numerous ailments.

In this instance, my list would include Arnica, Hypericum, Aconitum, Belladonna, Ignatia, Rhus tox, and my all-time favorite, Hepar sulphuricum calcarea, AKA Hepar sulph.  (Here are my favorite kits)

This little powerhouse of a remedy is used for conditions such as coughs (in particular, croup), sore throats, ear infections, whitlows, boils, dental abscesses (use only 6x or 6c), conjunctivitis (use 30x or 30c), acne (usually best in 200), glandular swellings, mastitis, certain presentations of eczema, sepsis, bone infections and likely many others even I’m not aware of.

It’s often the go-to remedy for infections that have an odor, particularly of cheese, but any foul-smelling, infectious odor would be cause for choosing Hepar sulph. If the infection is contained, a distinct smell may not be apparent, however, it’s still a good choice.

Another distinguishing factor for choosing this remedy is the vulnerability of the person. Someone who needs it because of an infection is more likely to be susceptible to outside influences such as weather (especially the cold), sounds, light, and chemicals.

There’s a kind of inner amplification, as if their nerves were exposed and the skin or protective covering is lacking.

Often, the pain of the infection is intense, much more so than would make sense just by looking at it.

Own this remedy in 6, 30 and 200 in either x or c potency, and relax knowing you’ll be armed with the best defense for both you and your family against bacterial infections that manifest in the areas mentioned above.

For example, if a child develops croup, Hepar Sulphuris Calc is recommended as part of an effective trio of remedies to use. In this case, we’d use a 30c or 30x every 3-6 hours until the child is feeling substantially better and the troublesome, often painful cough has subsided.

In the case of abscesses, the potency differs based on whether they’re dental or dermatological. The best (and only) potency recommended for dental abscesses is 6x, while 30x or 30c would be the most appropriate for external skin infections.

If either are very severe, the timing would be the same as above (every 3-6 hours until significant improvement is apparent), but if not, then twice daily until better will suffice.

When suitably chosen in the correct potency and proper setting and frequency, I’m certain you’ll never consider conventional intervention again.

What I love most about this remedy is that it (and others like it) will protect your family from the after-effects of traditional antibiotics.

In fact, I’d even call it the homeopathic antibiotic.
Wait. Do I really mean that?

Hepar sulph is not really an antibiotic, because it doesn’t produce any side-effects.

It is also cost-effective and doesn’t cause anaphylactic reactions.

It will not lead to long-term gut dysbiosis.

It doesn’t result in arthritis.

Best of all, it doesn’t require a prescription, so there’s no need to see a primary care physician and shell out a co-pay (not to mention other pharmaceutical purchases you may have to make in order to combat the effects of the “medicine” prescribed).

It doesn’t create immune system problems, food intolerances, or chronic constipation and…

It cures for the long-term.

Maybe I should rethink this, because honestly, Hepar sulph is nothing like an antibiotic!
Hmm…maybe that’s why I use it, and believe you should, too.

    Yup, I like this Hepar Sulph. Just 2 days ago I developed a sore throat with hoarse voice then with cough. I looked up at the Banerji Protocol for sore throat in general and it’s Hepar Sulph. A few minutes after taking my dose, I coughed up the mucus. Viva!My cough subsided in just 1 day and I can eat my chocolates again…hahaha

    1. Kelly says:

      Jane, where do you find the Banerji protocols? Glad it fixed your problem, I love when homeopathy works so quickly! 🙂

  2. Lindsey says:

    I love your articles! I have used Hepar Sulph quite a bit with my family; I recently had luck with using it for infected mosquito bites. I also gave it to my daughter when she had an infected puncture wound from a pencil. It seems to have worked very well.

  3. Sanjiv Lal says:

    Dear Joette,
    I enjoy reading your articles on homeopathy. I fund them very enlightening and informative.
    I study homeopathy as a hobby and use it only to treat the needy (pets included) to whom I distribute free medical treatment.
    Your articles are a helpful contribution to my cause
    and I thank you for the same.

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

      I’m delighted that you’re delighted.

  4. Cheli says:

    Hi Joette!

    Thank you for the article on this incredible remedy! Cheli

  5. Laura says:

    Fantastic article, as always, Joette! I have been using Hepar Sulph for all kinds of issues within the family for the last 2 years. It is simply incredible stuff and I wouldn’t want to be without it.

  6. Joyce says:

    Thanks for this! i have never used Hepar Sulf, so didn’t know much about it, but now I will get some to have on hand. Would it work in animals too? (Dogs/Cats).

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

      Yes!

      1. Elisa says:

        Do you think it would work for my 5mo puppy’s localized skin infection/abscess from Streptomyces (common soil inhabitant)? He was prescribed at least 3 months of Doxycycline! Or can this be taken in conjunction with antibiotics?

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

          I have witnessed it working for exactly that kind of infection. Homeopathy can be used along side antibiotics, but that would be overkill.

        2. Emjay says:

          when the matter has not formed low pot <30 aborts it otherwise 200 cures

          1. Elisa says:

            Thanks so much for this helpful response! How often and how many would you give a 45 lb. dog with a localized infection?

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

            The dosage remains the same, but without knowing what you mean by a localized infection, it would be difficult to respond.

          3. Elisa says:

            He had an abscess on his face that went away with Doxy (I only did it for 2 weeks) before I saw this. The culture revealed it was Streptomyces. Now the abscess is back. I had been giving him the Hepar Sulph 30c that I had on hand yesterday (5 pellets every hour or so), but it was still slowly getting bigger. So today I just bought Hepar Sulph 200ck and was wondering how many pellets to give him and how often. Thank you!!

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

            The number of pellets is printed on the side of the bottle and the frequency is based on the seriousness of the condition as it is presenting. If very severe, every 3 hours would be appropriate, while if its mild, perhaps twice daily.

            I’d say it actually didn’t go away with Doxy, or else it would not be presenting again.

          5. Elisa says:

            I bought Hepar Sulph 200ck and have been giving it to my dog every 3 hours since Tuesday night (he was the one with Streptomyces culture – and when vet drained it a couple months ago, there was thick, sticky pus and cellulitis). This week, the abscess on his cheek/temple had been getting bigger and bigger (it’s a hard ball, under skin, it’s not hot and doesn’t seem to be causing pain & no fever). I was freaking out until I read that Hepar Sulph brings things to a head. We took him to vet this morning – he suggests we do Doxy for a week to see if it shrinks, and if so, continue with Doxy for 30 days – and if not, we take him to surgical specialist to get it removed. So what to do now, as ball isn’t shrinking? Many thanks!!

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

            I can not take the case in this forum, but questions as to whether the condition is improving need to be asked, such as: Does the pain remain? What is the status of the culture now? If he had previous fatigue, diarrhea, other symptoms, etc. before the remedy, are they abated? In other words, one must assess if there is improvement or not to know where to go next. IF a medicine is acting but is not done, it usually means it ought to be continued. IF the condition has is completely different, a new remedy might need to be used.

            I’m not asking you this so that you can reply to me but rather, to teach how assessments need to be addressed.

            Without knowledge or comfort in knowing what to do, I encourage folks to defer to the vet. If you don’t like his opinion, find one who is at least holistic, if not homeopathic.

  7. Laura says:

    Thanks, Joette for all your wonderful articles. They have helped my family so very much! I was wondering if the X potency is as effective as the C. I have noticed that it is much easier to get children, babies , and the sick to take the X since it dissolves so much quicker and I don’t have to go to the trouble of dissolving it in water. Thank you for your time !

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

      They are pretty much interchangeable.

    2. The difference is in the manufacturing. The real difference is that some people may respond better to the X and others to the C, because the C has a greater degree of dynamization, usually.

  8. Christina says:

    Great Article! Quick question: If a person is allergic to sulfur in conventional medicines (for example, ampicillin), would there be any possibility of an allergic reaction to the homeopathic remedy Hepar Sulf in 6, 30, or 200?

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

      There’s no connection between the homeopathic and the crude form.

    2. Dawn says:

      This is is a great Christina! I am one of those people who has a slight allergy to sulfur antibiotics. I had the same concern. I actually just tried the Hepar Suplh but what I did was introduce the little tablets one at a time over about an hour just to take it slow on my first dosing. Now on my second dosing I noticed a little itching in my throat for just a short period of time when I dosed all at once but I am also dealing with a very sore throat. With that being said I think the Hepar was actually promoting healing which can cause some itching. I don’t have any of that after about 20 minutes. Just thought I would put that out there. It’s very encouraging to know these alternatives! Of course Joette I would love your input on this too!

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

        You don’t want to take the pills over time, otherwise you’re getting a dose each time. Instead, if you’re concerned about too much at once, simply take one pill only as a dose and space each dose according to the protocol you’re following.

  9. Carolyn says:

    Great post! Is the triple remedy protocol the one that’s linked for Croup? It seemed that the linked article had 3 options, but that they wouldn’t be taken together…If it’s a different trio of remedies would love to hear about that in another post!

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

      The triple remedy protocol is indeed taken one remedy at a time as it is called for.

  10. Laura says:

    Is Hepar Sulph safe to take during pregnancy? I see various opinions in the internet (the opposing stating that Hepar could cause a miscarriage b/c of its ability to stimulate the body to expel a foreign substance). Thanks!

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

      I think some one is misinformed. Hepar sulph has no history, that I’m aware of, that would cause concern during pregnancy.

  11. Melissa says:

    Is there a way to completely eradicate a tooth infection so I don’t have to get the tooth pulled? Will the Hepar Sulph do that, or will it keep coming back?

    I’m new to the idea of homeopathy and I’m trying to learn how this all works. I haven’t tried any of the remedies yet. Still researching what to buy, where to buy it, etc. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

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

      If the tooth infection is an abscess then homeopathy can be of help, but only if the tooth has integrity. IF its dead, it shouldn’t be left in.

      You can find individual remedies by clicking on each the name of the remedy in my blogs. IF you’d like to purchase a kit, which is a super bargain in the long run, feel free to contact my office and ask to speak to Lisa, Shannon or Jill. 716-941-1045 8:30-5 AM.

  12. Maude says:

    Joette, Would Hepar Sulph make sense to take for internal Streptococcus and Pseudomonas? I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and those two infections were detected from a stool sample test. I don’t want to take antibiotics because I am working on balancing and strengthening my immune system.

    Thank you!

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

      I have no experience using HS for these infections but plenty of experience using other homeopathics for them. You might want to check out my course Good Gut Bad Gut where I believe I cover intestinal microorganisms.

      1. Maude says:

        Thank you! I will check it out.

  13. Cynthia says:

    Joette,

    In the Survivalist Guide, is listed to use Hypericum 30c for the nerve pain and to promote nerve regeneration (under toothache). X-ray shows nerve loss but some nerve is still present. Question: may I assume that what is present remains viable and may it be possible to regenerate with the use of Hypericum?

    HS worked immediately in elimination of pain..i.e. with one pellet! and is continued at 30c. No evidence of pus/drainage; no pain.

    I am ready to take the dental course if you offer it. The SG is my go-to, thanks!

    1. Cynthia says:

      Note….I chose the HS 30c from the SG under abscess.
      Will you clarify the blog advice to only use 6x for dental abscesses?

      Thanks,
      Cynthia

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

      I can’t say whether there will be regeneration, but it would certainly be worth the effort to find out. I don’ t have the dental class completed yet.

      1. Cynthia says:

        Joette, I think you overlooked my other question below.

        Note….I chose the HS 30c from the SG under abscess.
        Will you clarify the blog advice to only use 6x for dental abscesses?

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

          Cynthia, read the post from Emjay. It offers the differentiation of the 2 potencies. The problem arises when it is unknown whether it has become filled with matter or not which is why I like to stay low until this presents. Does that answer your question?

          1. Cynthia says:

            Ahaaa! I did not see this later post, and yes this is now clear and is a writer-downer for me.

            Thanks again!

  14. Dipen says:

    Is there any restrictions on particular food items like coffee or something else while following a Banerji protocol for several months? Thanks.

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

      The Banerji’s say: “Please do not take any food or smoke or brush teeth within half an hour of taking the dose either before or after. Sour food and camphor should not be taken.” I have noted that if someone doesn’t normally drink coffee and they have some, it can antidote the remedies. As pertains to eating, I’ve also noted that 15 minutes apart as well as taking the medicines with food often works. Its the way I administer to animals. I consider their commendation as a general rule of thumb. sour foods in India are quite different than sour foods in the Western world, so I don’t include this information on this side of the globe.

      1. Amy G. says:

        I don’t know what sour food means in India, but I drink apple cider vinegar and lemon juice in water and eat sauerkraut daily — and I’m really hoping that by spacing them by 30 minutes from taking homeopathics, that they won’t interfere. Joette, do you have clients who do fine with what I eat/drink?

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

          I see no problem with the foods you describe. I eat them every day myself.

          1. Amy G. says:

            Thanks for the reply! Amy

  15. Dr.Mahilesh Baxi says:

    VERY VERY Fine

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

      Thank you.

  16. Dipen says:

    That means one must stop having coffee or sour foods until he or she is following the remedies, right?

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

      I don’t see that drinking coffee has an antidoting affect if it is drunk on a regular basis.

  17. Dipen says:

    Green tea can be taken right?

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

      That’s correct.

  18. Susan says:

    I need to pick up some of this because I had a minor sore throat and it went to my sinuses and now it is in my chest. I am so stuffed up and now I am coughing up icky stuff

    I really appreciate your web site and all of the emails that I receive from you on health issues. I hope Buster is also doing good!

  19. Susan says:

    I know that this is a silly question but is there a remedy for treating c diff bacteria? My Mother-In-Law had a cancer mass removed 4 weeks ago and she was given an antibiotic to fight any infections. The antibiotic gave her c diff and she has had diarrhea for 4 weeks now and still has it.

    The dr reran the c diff test on friday and it came back negative. I bought her some vsl#3 and give her 1 in the morning and 1 at night plus 2 S Boulardi capsules to keep on top of the c diff. Her dr doesn’t believe in expensive probiotics and said anyone of them will do the job but I totally disagree.

    She also had her gallbladder removed and they did a partial hysterectomy. Could her diarrhea be from the gallbladder being removed? I am giving her 2 tablets 20 minutes prior to eating meals with fat in them of Integrative Panplex 2 Phase in hopes that it will stop the diarrhea. My chiropractor said when you have your gallbladder removed, it is like washing greasy dishes without using any soap.

    I know that you can’t dispense medical advice but I am hoping some of your readers will offer me any ideas to help this sweet lady live a more normal life.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone ?

  20. Karren says:

    Joette, would you delve a little deeper for me regarding whitlows? Thank you so much for mentioning this name “whitlows!” When I first read the name, I almost bypassed it – Upon second thought, I thought hmmm, I should look up whitlows to see what they are before bypassing… Then VOILA! The little allergy bumps that have been plaguing me since I was 19 years old had finally come in clearly thanks to you! These have been the bane of my existence for sooo many years and such a source of suffering! I have your kit and want to start a protocol of Hepar Sulph to try and handle these. I’ve had them for now 23 years and they only surface when I eat something with wheat like soy sauce or wheat items made with yeast. They are not constant but when they appear they itch and are nerve-sensitive. So if I take Hepar Sulph for these, do I have to wait for them to appear or can I do this protocol for when they are dormant? Also what are the specifics for this in terms of dosage? a dosage once a day? Once a week? Puhleeze help me! Have been suffering from these for sooo long!

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

      Whitlows are infections that are in the form of an abscess, often filled with infectious matter. Usually there is only one pustule that presents at a time, not several bumps and they don’t usually itch since they can be quite painful. If what you’re experiencing is in line with this, then HS is the remedy that I’ve found most useful and it is used only during the time of the abscess. A dose is usually taken twice daily for whitlows until the infection has cleared.

  21. Maria says:

    Joette,

    I just had a “silver” tooth filling redone and the dentist told me that it was deeper than he expected it and that there was some decay under the filling. He put the new one in but said that I may end up with an infection which could lead to needing a root canal. This is one of my worst nightmares. I don’t have an abscess, would you recommend taking Hepar Sul 6C for this?

    Thank you.

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

      Homeopathy is medicine that, generally speaking, needs to be used for illness. Without illness, it would be superfluous and could complicate the condition. If an infection ensues, then would would be the time to use H.S.
      Consider reading the book “Root Canal Cover-up” by George Meinig before making a decision on the destiny of the tooth.

  22. Wuaykako J says:

    Warm greetings from South America Ms Joette. My wife and I follow you close and trust your advice as every time we have done so we have had great results on us and our children. Many thanks for sharing such wonderful information, may you always receive the reward in the many blissful ways God has, this information had saved us from many harms. Thank you once and again. I would appreciate if possible Ms Joette your advice on what to takd for asthma, i read on one of your articles that you were cured from asthma. Would appreciate you share the treatment or remedy I should follow. It is affecting me more often now and I am troubled by it. I thank you enormously and will be looking forward to your always benefitial response.
    Best regards

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

      The remedy that brought me relief was Nux vomica . I took it for about 3 days in succession and then stopped. However, it was based on a classical view of my case. This means many symptoms, some of which were not related to my breathing were considered in the remedy choice. It would not be prudent to simply us this medicine without someone fully taking your case to justify its use. Asthma is a tricky condition, particularly if meds have been used around it. Hence, I would not be comfortable offering protocols for it.

  23. wsensing says:

    Hi Joette, My 22 yr old daughter has a tooth abscess that has caused the whole side of her face to swell significantly. The dentist is saying that they cannot extract the tooth until the infection goes down and so she needs to be on antibiotics for a week first. I don’t know of anyone as against antibiotics as you and I would like to avoid these if at all possible…. Would Hepar 6c every two hours be a possible substitute? Thank you!

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

      Please re-read the article. I cannot advise you personally.

  24. Jimmy says:

    Hello..I am a classical homeopath and just found out about the banerji protocol…In 10 patients..how many have good effect with Hepar sulph?…I just treated a tonsillitis with severe pain with Lac-c and it went away over the night…Do they, you mean that the protocol works better than classical homeopathy or could it go hand in hand? Im new to this kind of thinking, thats why i am asking…

    Thankyou very much
    Jimmy

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

      I wouldn’t say that one remedy choice works better than another, its just that it is easier to come to the remedy and has shown consistent and reproducible results. And because of that, I can teach specific protocols for specific conditions. THe Banerjis report that when a protocol is used for a specific condition, approx. 80% will respond. of the remaining 20%, when the 2nd line of protocols is administered, they will likely respond. Sometimes there is a portion of that 20% that remains. At this point, it there’s a 3rd protocol, that is administered. If there isn’t, classical can be used.
      I teach their methods here on this blog and in my on line courses.

  25. Erika says:

    My almost 6 year old daughter has an abscess over one of her molars (which is disentigrating) I started Hep Sulph (30c, what I had on hand) immediately when I noticed the swelling. Now the abcess has started expelling pus when I push gently on the gums. Should I lower the potency, keep it at 30c, or 200k? She’s complaining of cheek pain so I considered Merc S as well. But I’m also not sure if she’s able to tell me exactly where she’s feeling the pain.

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

      Dental abscesses are best met with HS 6, not 30.

      1. Erika says:

        Follow up question. In Cynthia’s question above she asked for clarification on the recommended potency for dental abcess. You replied that you keep the potency low until you know the abcess is filled with matter. Is this correct? Could my higher potency have caused it to fill will pus? And now that I definitely know it has filled with pus I should still stick with the lower potency?
        In the past we worked with a classically trained homeopath who said to never use the lower potency so I’m just trying to be more open minded and understand.

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

          It is an established method that for dental abscesses, HS is best used in 6 potency. Its not a matter of classical or not, but rather to the direction you want to move the infection. That is, if you want it to erupt or to reabsorb.

          1. Shirley says:

            So does the 6 potency equal erupt and the 30 or 200 potency equal reabsorb?

            I am new to homeopathy and I am having a hard time understanding the logic behind choosing a potency for any given situation. I have looked in several books and online but I still don’t understand the logic. Surely, someone has written down guidelines or rules to help make the best choice.

            Where do you find that logic? I have your top 100 remedies and your book that came with them. Your website and blog have me obsessed and very excited about homeopathy. Thanks for giving me the passion to learn homeopathy.

            Shirley

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

            So happy to hear of your obsession. Its been mine for 30 years and I love welcoming new members!

            The study of posology is what you’re interested in learning and it can take years to master. Given that homeopathy is over 230 years old, and is widely used throughout the world, you’ll find varying opinions on which is the best way to apply potency. That, in a nut shell, is why I promote and discuss the Banerji Protocols on this blog and in my courses…because they take the guess work out of the potency as well as frequency question.

  26. Tatiana says:

    Hello Joette, my 12 months old has a bad sore throat, can I give her HS in 30 potency or lower? And how often would you recommend it for babies! Appreciate your help!

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

      Age makes no difference with potency and frequency. However, the potency for sore throat is either 200 or 30.

    This is a very helpful and informative article. When using HS for confirmed strep throat, how do you determine when to stop taking it? I have heard various opinions such as stop when the pain stops, to keep taking for about 3 days after you’re well to make sure it doesn’t come back. Is there a risk of causing it to come back if you take the remedy too long? Thank you.

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

      For acute conditions such as strep throat, we usually use the medicine until it’s very much better and its clear that the condition has passed. It might be a few days after pain as receded or as many as a week. Observation of how the person is feeling and acting will be the indicator.

    Hi Joette, my daughter has had a cough that wont go away(a week) and now another sore throat (she has no tonsils either) and she feels like her glands on both sides are swollen.. I gave her one dose of hep sulp 30.. when should this be repeated and is the 30 strong enough?

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

      Re-read the article. I give specific information on repetition.

  29. kim says:

    Sorry I did re read and saw the 3-6 hrs, this is a lingering cold, could or should I give sulph 30 in addition or would the hep sulph be enough…or should i move to the hep sulp 200 when i get it? Than you..

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

      Without taking the case, all I can tell you is that if you want the kind of results I report here, the correct potency is important. However, having said this, if a condition is serious enough and all you have is a 30, its often worth the effort. Meanwhile, contact my office and consider getting yourself a homeopathy kit with 200 potencies so you’re not caught without again.

  30. kim says:

    thank you.

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

      you’re welcome.

    so I have done many searches on many websites and found that everyone says that a dental abscess cannot be cured with anything. We have cured the gums abscesses with herbs before only. Generally people think they have an abscess and it’s not in the gum or just feels like it. Do you know of anyone personally that actually cured a diagnosed “tooth” dental abscess with hepar sulph 6c/x? My heart says there has to be something that can cure whatever acute illness we have because God said he provided everything we ever needed. Well, we can’t regrow teeth so there has got to be a cure.

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

      Yes, many. Its an excellent medicine for dental abscesses if in fact that is what it is.

  32. Gaylene says:

    correction to above “think they have an abscess and it’s “just” in the gum.”

    Hi I have a question. My Son 3 years old took by accident to much globulies Hepar Sulfuris c30. I think around 40 globulies. What schoul I do? I dont see any side effects after one hour but im worried. Waiting for your anseer.

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

      My sons over the years ate nearly an entire kit of homeopathy. There are no side effects. Its one of the best aspects of keeping this medicine.

  34. karen says:

    So, forgive me, I do not have the time to read through all comments looking for the answer to my question. I am allergic to sulfa drugs. Would using this product be a danger to me, or my family members who are also allergic?

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

      There are no allergies to homeopathics because of the pharmacological dilution process. They work in the opposite way because homeopathy is based on “like cures like”.

  35. Smbtv says:

    For a tooth infection, would you use hepar Sulph 6, 30 or 200? And would you simply follow the directions on the bottle because it’s an acute?

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

      If what you mean by tooth infection that it is a soft tissue infection and its not in the root or bone, then HS 6 is my choice. Its usually used 2D.

      1. Gaylene says:

        What if the infection is in the root or bone? don’t you still use hepar sulph?

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

          It is only used for soft tissue infection or cysts.

  36. Nicole says:

    I can’t seem to find Hepar Sulphuris Calcareum 6x on Amazon or anywhere. Is this still made in the 6x? I looked at my local health food stores where I purchase Boiron & to no avail….

    1. Courtney Ingham says:

      The shortened name, Hepar Sulph.

      1. Nicole says:

        Thank you Courtney.

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

      The shortened name, Hepar sulph, is used on the bottles (for obvious reasons). If you purchase it on Boiron and use my name, “Joette” in the code box, you’ll get a discount. Its also on Amazon.

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

        THe purchasing link was inadvertently withdrawn from the article. It should be up and running again.

  37. Nicole says:

    Thank you Joette, I purchased this on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000M0DF5A/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 So I believe this is it even though it says sulphate instead of sulphuris. Thank you for your response. I am learning so much!

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

      You’re welcome!

  38. Erin says:

    Would this be the correct remedy to use instead of post-operative antibiotics? (No infection to start with)

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

      I don’t use this as prophylactic. Instead, google “JoetteCalabrese surgery” and find a better way.
