Itching for a Better Medicine? Homeopathy May Be Your Best Choice

Is this eczema resolved or is it suppressed? This is an important distinction that is not considered in modern medicine. In homeopathy, however, it is a critical one.  Homeopathy approaches health from a different position than modern medicine does.  It sees the use of drugs as an impediment to the well being of the human.

When a drug, such as cortisone or other creams, is applied, the pathology still remains and only the outer experience or appearance is addressed.  However, the disease not only remains, but is driven deeper into the essence of the person.  In other words, the illness isn’t cured; it becomes subterranean.

On a practical level, what does this mean?  Well, it is no mystery that eczema and asthma are keenly connected.  They are both pathologies of epithelial cells that have been exposed to outside elements. Hence, the skin and lungs are not only similar, but are mirror representations of each other.  So, when cortisone, or the like, is applied to the skin, eczema recedes after a time and lung issues, such as asthma, bronchitis, etc. often appear.  This means that when we suppress an illness on the skin, we’re trading it for a disease of the lungs that can be life threatening. The trade is a less serious illness for a more sobering one.  Not a sound choice.

In the world of homeopathy with its proven laws of health, the homeopath works to assist the person’s ability to resolve the illness with a gentle stimulus from the remedy.  Instead of slamming the sufferer with a new more potent illness, the remedy gently nudges the sufferer’s ability to resolve the pathology on his/her own.

Consider the woman who had been suffering from eczema that included cracking of the skin, relentless itching at night and inability to use her hands for her daily work. The reason she chose homeopathy was because it had worked so well for her children and husband for other illnesses. This eruption wasn’t resolved in very short order. In fact, it took months.  However, during that period of time, other areas of discomfort were also resolved.

The remedy chosen for this undeniable transformation was Mezerium. It is specific for eruptions in a “stocking-glove” distribution on hands and feet.  It relates to skin that is cracking and even patterned in a geometric fashion. There can also be corresponding pain in the bones.  There is a sensitivity to touch with anxiety and irritability as common concomitants.

Until her hands were cleared, the young mother used nothing over the counter or prescribed. For centuries, homeopaths have known that the only acceptable thing to go on the skin is from the kitchen.  That is, if the product can’t be fully eaten, it does not belong on the skin.  Lard, unsalted butter, plain yogurt, coconut oil and olive oil are examples of acceptable skin creams.  Unpronounceable ingredients don’t belong inor on our body.

All skin difficulties, such as eczema, psoriasis, warts, acne and the like are outward pathologies that represent the inner health of the person.  If driven inward, it has been shown that the pathology will become a more profound infirmity.  Hence, eczema that is suppressed with drugs of commerce may inspire asthma to follow.

For true skin and subterranean health, choose homeopathy.  It is not superficial or of questionable safety.  Indeed, it offers the vigor of clear, glowing skin that everyone deserves.


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.

    Joette, how do you feel about jojoba oil or argan oil for the skin? I have tried olive and coconut oil on my skin and not gotten very good results, however the argan oil is wonderful on my face and the jojoba works well on my body. Thank you!

    1. Hi Michele, Both oils are high quality oils and sometimes we need to discover just the right product that specifically fits our needs. After choosing the right one, be sure that the quality is the finest and that there are no additives, preservatives, etc.

    I’ve had eczema on and off my entire life. Living in humid weather helps tremendously. However, we now live in a very dry climate, and every fall my eczema flairs up especially on my chin and around my eyes. It’s dry, flaky, red, splotchy and sometimes looks like I’ve been burned. It’s not weepy, and I don’t have any blisters. Nothing really controls it. I’m a very anxious person, worry about my children a lot, hate clutter, don’t like exercise, more cold than warm, not really energetic, shy and crave sweets. Please let me know which homeopathic remedy would be the best.

  5. Ashley Ingram says:

    Is there a potency and frequency you could recommend with this?

      This particular article was posted before I began teaching protocols that would include the details as such. I don’t have a set protocol for this medicine.
      But for eczema in general you can just key in ” Joette Calabrese eczema” and you’ll find more specific information.
