Impetigo Treated With Homeopathy Puts Out the Fire


It looks scary (and a little gross), but it’s not something to panic about!

Impetigo is a contagious skin condition that is usually caused by staphylococcus aureus bacteria (and more rarely, in tropical regions, by streptococcus).

It is very common in children and often spreads throughout schools. The small, red bumps turn into pustules that break and ooze and are just generally yucky.

It looks something like a Type I herpes outbreak but spreads much more rapidly.

Because impetigo is so contagious, it is best to quarantine the sufferer as much as possible, avoid touching the sores, wash hands often and use separate washcloths and towels.

When dealing with an impetigo infection, my first line of attack is to utilize the Banerji protocol.

The good doctors Banerji recommend Antimonium crudum 6C, two doses daily, along with a dose of Hepar sulphuris calcareum 200CK every other day.

Plan to continue this protocol for a while, watching for the eruptions to disappear first and then for the blackish scars to fade away over time.

This protocol has been found to work for approximately 80% of those who try it, but those who don’t respond might also consider Antimonium crudum 200C mixed with Arsenicum album 200CK taken twice daily.

The cell salts Kali Sulphuricum 3 or 6X and Natrum Sulph 3 or 6X will often prove beneficial as well and can be taken simultaneously, just separate them from the other remedies by a half hour or more. Twice daily doses will usually be sufficient in the case of impetigo.

Give the first protocol a good chance, say about 3-4 weeks, before switching to another. What you’re looking for, as always, is mitigation of symptoms.

Sometimes in homeopathy, particularly in cases of intense show of vital force such as in a very high fever (105 degrees) or such, remedies will act rapidly, often within minutes or a few hours.

For those issues that are not as intense or have lingered, it may take a few days to show improvement.

We want health to be restored and, most importantly, done so without drugs.

Why not use a little drug here and there?

Because drugs don’t cure.

They simply cover up.

I liken this to ripping out the smoke alarm from the ceiling of the kitchen while the pot on the stove is aflame.

Removing the annoying sound of the alarm only allows the fire to grow and overcome the kitchen. Why would you not just put out the fire?

That, my friends, is why I rely 100% on homeopathy for my family’s health care and have done so for more than 27 years.

Join me and together let’s put out the fires in your home, too.

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.
