I Want My Body Parts Back

“I’ve been robbed! One pair of tonsils and two pairs of wisdom teeth were stolen, Officer. Does anyone have any ideas on where they are and how I can get my body parts put back where they belong?”

First, let me say that my body parts were innocent. They never broke any laws. They were not misaligned, misplaced, septic or otherwise unruly.

Well, okay, my tonsils used to get infected, but homeopathy would have fixed that in a jiffy. My little body parts had never turned on me — or the robbers, for that matter.

Their only crime was being too close to the surgeon’s scalpel. And so, the robber couldn’t resist convincing my parents and me that it was time for them to go.

But luckily, they didn’t steal my brain, so I’ve been thinking.

Since I’m griping about other stolen property, I’d like my old gut back — you know, the one I had before it was tainted with antibiotics. And how about my old immune system before I was jabbed with other questionable stuff? Yep. I’d like that back, too!

But interestingly, I wasn’t left with nothing. Instead, the robbers who stole my body parts didn’t leave without putting something else in their place. They filled my other teeth with mercury and injected more into my arm.

Additionally, I was given a daily prescription of pills that suppressed my womanly hormones so that my body could not produce another human being.

I was also given the gift of steroids. They forced my skin to stop acting rashy and later produced a decade full of asthma. Good times!

Then there were the myriad painkillers for migraines that had been initiated by all the other trash ( I mean prescription drugs) I took.

Somehow my uterus, ovaries, gall bladder and appendix were spared. But I still yearn for my tonsils and wisdom teeth.

However, I must clarify that the robbers didn’t steal my body parts stealthily in the dark of night. They didn’t leave me in a worsened state when no one was looking. No. They did it with my permission!

And something even stranger happened: I actually PAID them for this grand theft. And to add more insult, at the time, I was HAPPY that they took them. I probably even praised them for their work.

But as time rolled on and common sense finally prevailed in the brain they left me, it became clear that an out-and-out robbery had been committed. But unfortunately, it took decades — and a lot of self-directed education— for me to flip the switch in my thinking.

So, my friends, I have to admit that the doctors and dentists who robbed me aren’t really to blame. My parents and I actively sought out the professionals’ opinions and agreed to submit to these procedures.

Indeed, we made the phone call, scheduled the appointment and dutifully listened to the sales pitch. Then, on the day of the theft, we gave them permission to dig, cut and cart my body parts away.

It makes me wonder. You know how you do your research before buying a car — because it’s a significant investment and you don’t fully trust the dealer? You know how you spend hours, days, even months deciding how to spend a large sum of your hard-earned money?

Well, I could have done the same before submitting to these medical procedures — to any medical procedure. But I didn’t. So, why didn’t I kick the tires and look under the hood? How come I didn’t do my homework? Why have I spent more time studying the cars I’ve purchased?

I know why. It’s because I trusted. I fully believed that a shiny new paint job was all that mattered, and I didn’t consider the long-term consequences.

So, what could I have done differently? I mentioned that homeopathy could have nudged my tonsils into better behavior. Although, in fact, they already were behaving precisely as God intended. The tonsils’ uncomfortable but useful function may have protected my body from subsequent respiratory infections.

Joette Calabrese

You see, tonsils — the sentry guards of our immune systems — hinder germs from entering the rest of the body through the nose and mouth and are rich in white blood cells to fight the local infection. They are there for a reason.

But to relieve my tonsillitis, I might have employed Hepar sulphuris calcareum 30 or 200twice daily until very much better. In fact, let’s add Hepar sulph to our list of must-have homeopathic medicines in our collection. I prefer to own it in several potencies — 6, 30 and 200 — as it has been shown to be invaluable in certain kinds of cases of infection, as you may remember from my blog post, Hepar sulph: The Homeopathic Antibiotic.

Hepar sulph is not the only potential choice of medicine. There are others. For more specific details, read my blog, Ultimate Remedies for Strep Throat and Enlarged Tonsils.

How far can I go with all of this? I must admit, not very far. All I can do now is complain. And I hate complainers. So, instead, I’ll just warn you not to let your important body parts be tinkered with. Keep your God-given parts! Protect them like they are something important — because they ARE!

No one is going to give you your money back, and, more importantly, no one will hand those parts back to you once they’re taken. Instead, you’ll end up just like me — spending your time longing for pieces of your body that were taken long ago. Believe me, that’s not a good way to pass the time.

If you know anyone suffering, pass on the good news of homeopathy! When you know something this important and impactful, you shouldn’t keep it a secret!

P.S. If you’d like to learn more about avoiding antibiotics and unnecessary surgery, consider my course, The Antibiotic Alternative: Balance Your Bugs Without the Drugs: Practical, Proven Homeopathic Protocols. Overuse of antibiotics in our society has led to widespread antibiotic resistance and superbugs. So, not only are our more common antibiotics becoming less and less effective, but the more powerful ones in use today cause even greater upheaval in the gut biome and can produce side effects galore.

But all is not lost! We can get off the conventional antibiotic conveyor belt and return to trusting in the natural healing abilities our bodies innately possess — with just a gentle, polite nudge from well-chosen homeopathic medicines. Education is key! So, I developed The Antibiotic Alternative course to teach you what I’ve learned through almost 40 years in practice and from learning beside the famed Drs. Banerji in India.

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.

    Oh my goodness! I laughed so hard at this! SO true! I was lucky to keep my tonsils. But the wisdom teeth and gall bladder are gone.

  2. K says:

    So true! What to do if tonsils and teeth out? Treat symptoms that present? Wonder if a homeopathic made from the organ would help the stolen tonsils? Please open up the Academy soon! Thank you Joette!

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, PHom M says:

      We use the name of the condition that ensures as well as symptoms to determine the medicine that ought to be used.

      As long as you receive emails from me, you’re on the list to know when the next class is forming.

  3. Angela says:

    Recently I got what felt and looked like strep but I tested negative. I tried homeopathy first as usual but didn’t feel any better after several days with HS and even switched to Merc Sol as that was all I had. The nights were a killer! I finally caved and went to the Dr worried it would travel south and I’d really be in a bind. What would you have taken for the pain during that time while waiting for the healing? Belladonna 6 didn’t help me. Also what about after you take the dreaded antibiotics? Btw this stuff has lingered even with antibiotics and I’m hearing that right now people can’t get over their sicknesses. Even with meds. Like they’re more resistant! Thanks Joette! We love you!!

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, PHom M says:

      You have a lot of good questions. I urge you to consider looking at my online course titled Antibiotic Alternative, found on JoettesLearning Center.
      Check out the blog that covers this fully, found here.

  4. Julie Welfel says:

    I was one last sore throat away from getting my tonsils out as a child. The only problem now is that I get tonsil stones a loot. They are so nasty. Is there any way to make those go away? Thanks. Julie

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, PHom M says:

      Yes. Most certainly.
      I’ll consider writing a blog on the subject.
      Meanwhile, should you be interested, you might want to check out my online course titled “Antibiotic Alternative,” found here
      at JoettesLearningCenter.com.

      1. Amy says:

        I also get tonsil stones very often and have been trying to search and find what homeopathic remedy can help! We need you Joette!

  5. Amy says:

    WOW! This is a very timely article, Joette! My Dad (82yrs) is scheduled for a HIDA Scan next week (this test is said to be “very safe” but I’m skeptical because it uses radioactive material, an injection of hormones, and sometimes morphine, ugh). They are performing this test to see if his gallbladder is not functioning properly, and if it contains stones. If they deem it damaged in ANY way, they plan to REMOVE it! I implored my Dad to please not remove his organ before trying homeopathy, but several of his friends and even my aunt & uncle told him that they had their gallbladders removed and swear it fixed their abdominal pain and digestive distress. My two questions for Joette!
    1. Would this HIDA test be beneficial even if it sounds toxic because then Id have a clear diagnosis and would know which remedies to treat him with homeopathically!?
    2. What convincing reasons can I give him for NOT removing his gallbladder? I need some non-fiction horror stories to sober him enough to encourage him to reconsider this most-likely unnecessary and reckless removal.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, PHom M says:

      All good questions, Amy but not quickly answered here.
      Should you be interested, I cover gall bladder conditions in my online course titled Good GUt Bad Gut found here:


      1. Jo says:

        Does your GGBG course also include recommendations for issues for those of us whose gall bladders have already been “stolen”?

        Had I known what I know now, I would certainly not have been so quick to have that surgery.

        1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, PHom M says:


  6. Elizabeth says:

    Goodness! I have had four wisdom teeth, my uterus and appendix removed all in my young and older adult years. Now what? I am about to be fifty.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, PHom M says:

      Learn how to use homeopathy for the next illness, condition, or mishap. Each of those parts you mention has homeopathic protocols that have been shown through the last two centuries to address their related conditions, often with resounding success.
      Once you know what to use homeopathically, you’ll be prepared.
      That’s my point here.

  7. Bobbie says:

    Thank you so much for this post! At 17 the wisdom teeth were yanked, at 20 the tonsils, then 22 my spleen! Seeing a pattern?! Tonsils and spleen both huge lymph organs, and one can only guess that I spent the next 20 years sick as a dog and have had 8 miscarriages. Thank the Lord I now I have homeopathy! Thank you Joette! I can at least spare my family from all this nonsense by being educated in homeopathy. Love the courses and the website!

  8. Sharie says:

    Let’s not forget the theft of foreskins. Deep, deep trauma is incurred when this vital body part is stolen. Unfortunately many American boys are still undergoing genital mutilation and are left with a partially functioning penis.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, PHom M says:


  9. Nicole says:

    I’m curious about the wisdom teeth… mine were fine but recently the bottom two especially are coming in at an angle. I don’t have the space for them and they are causing my lower teeth to shift over one another. I don’t see any solution but to remove them!

    1. Glori says:

      I’d live to see a reply to this, as well. We have a similar situation

    2. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, PHom M says:

      Get a second and a third opinion before removing any parts. As for dental decisions, find yourself a biological dentist. Not merely a “natural dentist” or “holistic dentist” but a biological one. And be prepared to travel if need be.

    3. Angie says:

      May I ask how young are you Nicole? I have a 19 yr old having 3 wisdom teeth, and seems only the 2 bottom are impacted. The one on top is very tiny which seems it won’t come out at all. Thank you for sharing!

  10. Linda S says:

    Bravo, Joette! I wish all young people could read this before any of their body parts are stolen! Too late for me. I no longer have the stapes bones in my middle ears (otosclerosis). They’ve been replaced with little wires that don’t work nearly as well (and get really hot if I talk on a cell phone). My uterus and is gone, too. Thank you for this fun and funny bit of wisdom.

  11. Joyousgreens says:

    Great article…well done!!!
    Sent it to many, especially my Chiropractor.

  12. Lisa says:

    Can homeopathy help with uterine prolapse? I know someone who is contemplating a hysterectomy, but I know she would rather keep her body parts!

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, PHom M says:

      I’ve witnessed enough reversal of the condition to allow the woman to stay away from the scalpal, solely with homeopathy. Should you are interested, check out my online “Feminopathy” course on JoettesLearningCenter.
      But if you own a repertory (and you ought to), you’ll find the medicines there that do the best work.

  13. Amy says:

    One point, it is much easier to locate information to research a car than it is to go against the status quo and research alternatives to conventional medicine. Your site is a godsend Joette. If only there were more ways to research out there.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, PHom M says:

      You’re correct.
      It’s planned that way.
      It’s up to us to dig not one or two steps deep but four or five.

  14. Christina says:

    My toddler has massive toddlers that aren’t seeming to respond to Sanguinaria, Hepar Sulph or Baryta Carb. Any other ideas? I’m loathe to have them out but he needs to be able to properly breathe at night!

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, PHom M says:

      There are many other medicines to consider. Check your repertory.
      Having said this, I assume that when you say that you’ve tried HS and BC you’ve given it/them many months.

  15. Cristina Strenko says:

    God Bless you and your family Joette, You have taught me so much and unknowingly helped heal so many conditions for me and my family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, PHom M says:

      Many thanks for your kind words, Cristina.
      Best to you and yours.

  16. Sarah W says:

    I took your feminopathy course and tried the protocols for fibroids for 18 months but alas, my issues were debilitating and life altering. Homeopathy didn’t cure me – so I succumbed last month to a total hysterectomy. I am feeling like a failure and already missing my parts

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, PHom M says:

      Not all cases are cured. Don’t relent. Learn to use Homeopathy for post-surgical ills and the myriad of other conditions that arise in life.

  17. Marni says:

    Would love a post about tonsil stones.

  18. VB says:

    A lady at our church told us she still has a baby tooth and had two teeth coming in crooked that later straightened out themselves, no orthodontist needed. It was an answer to prayer to hear her story because two of my kids are dealing with this issue. It helps to hear these anecdotal stories when making decisions.
