Kiss, Kiss

If you've read my blog posts in the past, you’ll remember that I’m no lover of flu shots. Indeed, I've seen the damage they can do, but Rite Aid’s slogan promoting flu shots did resonate with me: “Don’t hide from the flu.”

The good news is that you don’t have to hide from the flu, and the process doesn't involve injecting yourself with questionable viral concoctions. Have no fear of getting close enough to hug and kiss your loved ones, even greeting friends, regardless of the germs, with my easy-to-use remedy flowchart.

I’m all about making this as easy as possible to use at home.

The only problem is that you need to move quickly in order to take advantage of this flu protocol. If you note that your child appears to have contracted the flu, and you act on it within the first 12 -24 hours, you may be able to abort it or at least lessen it to a great degree without going to the next step.

Below are the remedies to have on hand.  Use either c or x potency.

1) Ammonium carbonicum 30

2) Aconitum 6

3) Nux vomica 6

4) Mercurius sol 6

5) Arsenicum album 6

*Stop administering at any juncture when there is measurable improvement, and resume where you left off if the symptoms recur a few days later.


What happens if you didn't get to the remedies in time or you chose incorrectly and the cold lingers and lingers?

One of the best little tricks I know is to use Sulphur 30 every 3-4 hours for 1-2 days. If at any time the cold seems to be much improved, then stop the remedy. If it returns a few days later, then resume using the remedy. However, don’t continue with the treatment for more than 5 days. It’s important to mention here that a lingering cold or flu is one that lasts more than 2 weeks or so.

Another beneficial tidbit to remember is that if the flu is rampant in your school or neighborhood, and your children are particularly susceptible to it, consider using a prophylactic against it. One of the best is Influenzinum 30, four times in one day, every week for one month, then every month until the end of flu season. Be sure to stop when the threat is over.

With this chart, your remedy kit (call or email us and we’ll send you one) and a few additional remedies, have no fear of getting close to others even during cold and flu season.  Then, kiss to your heart’s content!

P.S. ~Would you would like to learn more about how to be prepared for epidemics and other crises, as well as all types of first aid situations and sourcing these remedies? Then you need my upcoming course The Survivalist Guide to Homeopathy. Learn more about how homeopathy is THE medicine for when the SHTF.

Don't stop with only my flu protocol!  Many free, educational materials are available on my website.  To get started, check out this handy first-aid chart.  There's nothing like being prepared.


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.

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.

    Thanks for this info, Joette. I will definitely keep it in mind, that is, after checking my remedy kit to make sure it has everything listed. Then all I have to do is log in to your website and enter ‘flu’ in the search box. Should be able to remember that!

    Hi Joette, I was wondering what you thought of the products, that are offered at the health food stores, with oscillococcinum combination in them for the flu and colds?

    1. admin says:

      Are you talking about a product with Oscillo in conjunction with something else?

  3. Monica says:

    Do you have a recommendation of what brands are better than others? And where to purchase? (- verses your whole kit under products tab.) I am having difficulty locating any store locally who carries these products, including Ferrum Phos. Can one determine by symptoms or intensity if a cold is a flare up from a past “recovered” illness or a whole new strain? Thank you!

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

      We sell kits here that have 100 of the top remedies used most frequently. But you may also buy individuals on Amazon, etc. I an not familiar with any homeopathic pharmacies that are represented on Amazon that are not worthy. If they’re well known, they are generally of good repute.

      I don’t think I’d dig so deeply into which strain you’re suffering from. Simply take the symptoms and condition at face value.

  4. beth says:

    you mention: take sulphur 30 every 3-4 hours for 1-2days; meaning: stop after 4 doses each day (?????)

    stop when symptoms disappear, but resume if they reappear-clarify: “don’t continue for more than 5 days.”

    (does this mean after 3-4x per day for 5 days stop altogether, or a total of 5 days cumulative of using, stopping then reusing? i don’t think the latter seems like it would be an accurate understanding of the nature of how long an infection’s ability to reappear can occur?)

    i would appreciate some clarifying in your own words

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

      I think if you read it again your question will be answered.

  5. Dawn Schmitt says:

    do you have any recommendations for Flu Shot injury?

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

      I cover toxic reactions to drugs, etc. in my course titled “Toxic”.

  6. Cinda says:

    is there anything that can be used as protection against flu vaccine side effects for someone who has to take the flu shot for their job?

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

      The Healthy American.org.
