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.
This little powerhouse of a remedy is used for conditions such as coughs (in particular, croup), sore throats, strep, 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
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 is 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.
