Lucky Me!

Dr. Prasanta Banerji and Joette

I’m at the world-famous Banerji Homeopathy Research Foundation and Clinic in Kolkata.

Lucky me! I’m in Kolkata, India, and each day I sit next to a master. I sit snuggly between a well-trained homeopathic assistant (a homeopath in his/her own right) and shoulder-to-shoulder with the famed Dr. Prasanta Banerji, an 80-year-old homeopathic physician who learned not only from his 50+ years of practice but also from his father and grandfather, both of whom were community leaders and homeopathic physicians.

And I witness mastery.

The master Dr. Prasanta Banerji, Joette and Dr. Soma Sinsha Roy

So far, I’ve filled three notebooks of cases and protocols as the doctor and his son, Dr. Pratip Banerji, take cases. I’ll probably get writer’s cramp from these many weeks of wild scribbling. My pen flies as fast as it can to get as many precious details as possible. I am reminded of the way my pen used to fly in college when I was stirred by a good teacher. However, I must say that the inspiration I feel here is a rarity in life … I’m sopping it all up and writing it all down. I’ll be using these unusual protocols and techniques in my practice and hope to pass them on to my students as well.

The Doctors Banerji see 100 cases in each consultation room.

There are two main rooms, and I alternate between the two. Dr. Prasanta Banerji takes mostly cancer and kidney diseases while Dr. Pratip Banerji sees more common ailments. Each is able to help 100 patients every day. Yes, you heard me correctly … 100!

I am amazed not only by their ability to zero in on the case within minutes and cure deftly but also by their ability to collect impressive data. I will share more on their data collecting in a future blog.

We begin at approximately 9 a.m. and end the day after 8 or 9 p.m. I usually don’t get back to our hotel until after 9 p.m. I find I’m not in the least bit exhausted. You know how you feel when you could stay up till the wee hours on Christmas Eve? That’s the way I feel!

This is how they accomplish so many cases: Assistants take the preliminary information: the chief complaints, diagnosis and tests, including CT scans, blood tests, etc. Then the patient is sent into the chamber where we sit. There, Dr. Banerji makes a speedy and precise assessment of the case and determines the remedies based on his well-developed 150-year-old protocols. While we are in one chamber, his son, Dr. Pratip Banerji, is in another doing the same. Other homeopaths are working in other chambers as well.

These homeopathic procedures are used without referring to a repertory, a materia medica or any books. In fact, there’s not a single book in sight because Prasanta Banerji is the repertory. He has in his 80-year-old head the protocols that he, his father, grandfather and son have developed over the last 150 years of homeopathic practice.

What’s remarkable about this man’s understanding of homeopathy is that in addition to the knowledge he applies daily, he’s just as astute at compiling it. This clinic is only a small portion of the research foundation that he oversees. More than 1,000 cases per day are taken, assessed and supervised by the Banerjis with, as far as I’m able to determine, a staff of approximately 15 homeopaths. Upstairs in the data collecting rooms, a line-up of eight computers, each busily run by data inputters, collate and compile every cancer case.

This is said to be the busiest medical clinic in the world. Patients and their families come from hundreds, sometimes thousands of kilometers away, as well as from far-away places to be treated by this dynamic father/son duo.

On the first day, I arrived at 8 a.m., and 80-some patients were lined up on the sidewalk outside the clinic. One of them told me they had been waiting in front of the clinic since 5 a.m. Such allegiance!

This is what comes of all of these cases

For starters, I observe cure after cure. Yes, I see the doctor taking reflux cases. Indeed, we are witness to the menorrhagia cases, but what the good master mostly takes in are cancer cases.

And every day, it’s proven to me by the patients, their families and anyone who cares to learn more that Dr. Banerji is curing cancer. One person at a time. Sometimes slowly. Always methodically. And frequently without fanfare. I’ve been privileged to observe the weeping eyes of gratitude in more than one cured case per day.

If you’re a devotee of homeopathy as I am, you’ll understand that homeopathy has a reputation for completion of illness, not management of symptoms. I see that happening here everyday.

This is a special place.

Perhaps even a blessed one. For it wasn’t too long ago that Mother Teresa was ministering to the poor only a few streets away. She, too, was using homeopathy for the sake of humanity.

There is apparently a great deal of notoriety surrounding these remarkable results. In fact, the Drs. Banerji are frequent presenters at Canadian, German, Swiss, Italian and even American medical conferences. The work of two great masters is being recognized by conventional medical directors, and history is being made.

How lucky I am to learn from and be a witness to it!



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 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.

    I feel your excitement! And I wish I could see this wonderful place in person too. What an inspiration. But also, I am sad for all the people who have no idea what miraculous things are happening today because of homeopathy. Dr. Oz just featured it on his show and it was actually all positive. If only they’d do a story that showed things like this, Americans would be quicker to embrace the wisdom of it. You are in our prayers Joette! I’m so happy for you!!!

  2. Gina says:

    Amazing! I’m so excited that you have this opportunity. I cannot wait for my next appointment with you to hear more. Like you with Dr. Banerji, I too am in awe with what YOU have shown me. Have fun, travel safe and learn lots! 🙂

  3. Cathy Osborn says:

    That is AMAZING and WONDERFUL!! Does an occasional case of chronic cough and wasting (Cystic Fibrosis) ever show up?

    1. Cathy Osborn says:

      I’d love to hear some of the remedies suggested…

      1. joette says:

        as a matter of fact, i’ve had you on my mind the entire time . mary will call you on monday with info that i’ve learned.

  4. Scottie says:

    Enjoy this post. Wonder if you are hearing about prostate cancer cures.
    My Spouce has metastatic prostate cancer, no masses known , but levels keep rising. He sees my ND but I am interested in what you are finding.
    I was diagnosed with NH lymphoma 2years-ago. I began my treatment with homeopathy and herbs. I moved on to Qigong and ND treatment.
    I wonder what you are seeing there. I am healthy, never had symptoms, and believe that it will be clear on next scan.

  5. patrice says:

    We are so fortunate that you can have this experience and hone in on your skills with such a master. I look forward to reading more.

  6. momawake says:

    How exciting for you and for us! Thanks for briefly sharing your experience. I’m sure you could fill many blog posts with what you’re learning.

    1. joette says:

      The cancer cases come in with ct scans, blood work, X-rays, etc. from alopathic hospitals and clinics. Dr. Prasanta Banerji reviews the already determined diagnosis, makes a record of it and prescribes on that 3rd party diagnosis. Its a win win, because it is fully documented and the data is entered in their sophisticated data base and the follow-up is usually within 8-13 weeks.

  7. Jackie Hunt says:

    I am curious as to how the cancer cases are diagnosed. If 10 people come into Dr Banerji’s clinic with “cancer” would our modern day physicians also say that all 10 had cancer (as modern medicine defines it?) Cancer being a tumor of out-of-control cell growth, etc? Just curious.

  8. Jan McConville says:

    This is wonderful news! I have been reading your blog with great interest. I have experienced the value of homeopathy and I am trying to learn as much as I can about its healing ability. I am now watching Dr. Prasanta Banerji’s DVD with great interest at home and so very excited to hear what you have experienced in their clinic.

    Thanks for keeping up the blog. It is wonderful to read about your experiences. I am hoping you will devise some way to share what you have learned with all of us and I will be first in line!

  9. Liz says:

    I can’t wait to hear even more about it. What a great opportunity!!

  10. Michelle Goldstein says:

  11. Hilary says:

    Thank you Joette for sharing all this incredible information with us – it’s really generous of you to feed back in this way when you must be exhausted at the end of a day. What an insight into homeopathy in Asian communities – I look forward to reading your next blog.

  12. Lorna says:

    Joette – you are really doing important work by observing and eventually spreading and preserving Dr. Banerji’s acccumulated knowledge and experience! I am endlessly impressed and inspired by your youthful energy, perpetual desire to learn, joyful curiosity, and genuine warmth in helping others. I am looking forward to benefiting from your recent experiences as all of your new ideas are put into writing.

    1. admin says:

      Thank you for your kind words, Lorna. You know how it is when you adore your work, you simply can’t stop!

      I’m presently preparing to offer as much as I can from what these great homeopaths have shared with me.

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

      I have contacted you personally via your email.

  16. Deepak Kumar says:

    Hi Joette,

    Thanks for sharing all these details.
    My other is taking Ruta6 + Cal Phos 3x from Dr Bannerji after her brain surgery. We are still waiting for her to get recovered. But we are very hopeful that Dr Bannerji’s medicines will work for her.
    She had been diagnosed with Brain Cancer Grade 4.
    I have met Dr Pratip Bannerji in person when I went to take the medicines.
    How can we tell Allopathy Doctors that the medicine exists to cure Brain cancer. So that My mother (and people like her ) could have been cured much earlier


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

      I’m happy to hear that you have begun the protocol. after having spent much time at the Banerji Clinic, I came home impressed and relieved that there are concrete answers.

      THe Banerjis spend a great deal of time meeting with cancer institutions throughout the world and they are making headway. However, from my standpoint, I see it as something that will not change until this batch of doctors die and the next generation follows. Its nearly impossible to change the mind of doctor; They’ve got too much invested in their ways.

  17. dr. hiten h. lalani says:

    Please give all details of your notebooks regarding banerji protocols….so we can use for benefits of patients..thank you

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

      The Banerji’s have a book on Amazon that you should run, not walk to get to and purchase. Its aptly titled The Banerji Protocol, by Prasanta and Pratip Banerji. Of course it does not include all of their protocols, but should you be interested, I teach the protocols in my courses, particularly those I learned at their side in their world famous clinics. Feel free to go to courses.joettecalabrese.com and click on the course that suits you best.

      Additionally, I teach as much as I can on this blog every week.

  18. Nadeem Durrani says:

    Hi Joette, I was just wondering since the Banerjee Protocols dont work like classical homoeopathy, and have specific medicines for specific conditions like conventional medicines, could you be kind enough to tell what remedies the Banerjee Protocols uses for End Stage Renal Failure? I am sure there are remedies that used initially, and if they dont work, another set are used, and if they still dont work, a third set, like Banerjee Protocols does for specific Cancer types?

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

      You’re asking for a course in homeopathy. I wish I could simply list them all but it’s not that simple. I urge you to see a homeopath who is versed in these conditions and ways.

      1. Nadeem Durrani says:

        I’m already a certified Homoeopath. If you dont feel like sharing, thats fine but there is little need to make it sound complicated when its not. Thats why its called the Banerjee Protocols and not Joette Calabrese Protocols. Thank you. Clearly not cut out to be a teacher.

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

          End stage renal failure is indeed complicated which leads me to consider that your certification needs some fleshing. The comment section of a blog is not a place to learn how to treat such a condition. My statement remains: I suggest that you see a homeopath who is versed in these conditions and ways.

          Meanwhile, you might want to buy their book “The Banerji Protocols” and up your studying.

  19. Rachel says:

    Mrs. Calabrese,

    Some Banerji Protocols specify a remedy to be “in liquid” and I use those as specified.

    But if a remedy is listed without specification, may we choose to use it in either pill or liquid form? The Protocol I’m thinking of would be so much easier if I could use it in liquid, but I don’t wish to stray from their valuable experience.

    Thank you very much!

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

      Its always better to use the method to the letter of the law. If you deviate, recognize that the results may not be the same.

      1. Rachel says:

        Thank you Mrs. Calabrese.

  20. Ana Carolina says:

    How wonderful you were able to be with the Banerji’s and learned so much!
    What I also admire is your willingness to share your knowledge and experience. This says a lot about you.
    Hoping to continue learning from you…
