Let Me Google That for You

Allow me to be a proud Mama Bear for a moment, will you?

I don’t have a huge team; we’re not a big corporation. My virtual office consists of a small group of dedicated people, located all across the country, who have joined me in my mission — to introduce practical, proven, safe homeopathy to 100,000 new households by the year 2020.

They are the hardest working team I know.

Each course book you receive is individually printed for you by one of my team members.

Each product you order is hand-packed with care.

Each time you call my office or send an email, you are speaking with one of the very few people I have chosen to represent me.

Each question or concern is met with a sincere desire to help you develop your knowledge of homeopathy.

(Watch out … the Mama Bear is going to defend her cubs.)

Many of you are parents — a lot of you are moms — so you’ll understand this.

When your child comes to you with a simple question, your first instinct is to give them the answer. Right? Maybe that is what you do — the first time.

But then that nagging little voice in the back of your head remembers the old proverb, “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.”

As much as you love your kids, you realize it’s a better learning experience if they look the answers up for themselves. It’s your responsibility to teach your children, not do the legwork for them. After all, you won’t always be around. Eventually, they’ll have to “fish” for themselves.

The same realization occurs to my team. My phone rings off the hook — all day — across my virtual office.

The number of emails we receive is humbling.

While the team certainly enjoys talking to my clients and students, on many occasions, the questions received are something the questioner could have easily looked up for themselves.

The inside joke around here is they want to say, “Oh, let me GOOGLE THAT FOR YOU!!!”

Instead, they usually just look up the answer and give it to you. But, in the back of our minds, we realize when we spoon-feed the information to you, we have lost an opportunity to teach you to fish!

You need to learn how to locate pertinent information on homeopathy without my help because I won’t always be around. (Now don’t panic! I’m not planning on going anywhere, but we have to be realistic. No one stays on this planet forever!)

So, on behalf of my team, let me give you a “fishing lesson.”

Let’s say you need more information about potential remedies for allergies.

<Insert buzzer noise here> Nope! Don’t immediately ask us!

Instead, go to your computer, tablet or smartphone. I have been posting weekly blogs or podcasts for over ten years as free resources for you, and they are amazingly easy to search for.

You can either use the search box on my website at PracticalHomeopathy.com, OR you can start with Google! How simple is that?

Right in Google’s search box (at the blinking cursor), enter “Joette Calabrese” and then the name of your health concern — it would be “allergies” in our example case. I just did it (look here). 

There are pages and pages of my free resources regarding allergies, all available to you at the touch of a button.

To maximize the performance of your search, I also suggest you add a symptom of your health concern. Possibly search every symptom if you want your search to be more specific.  

Words such as “remedy dosage” or “how to take remedies” are helpful if you need answers to those common questions.   

Also, explore my website — there is a wealth of free information for you.

Under the Free Resources tab, you may join the Free Community for access to free downloads and a vast collection of articles. (I realize I just said the word “free” a lot. But it’s something I’m very proud of — I want you to have access to as much information as I can give away!)

Under the Blog tab, you have access to hundreds of my blogs and podcasts

Most blogs include a “Remedy Card” you can download and print for future reference. (As does this blog post, so, don’t forget to scroll down!) When you read my blog posts, please be sure to read the comments at the bottom of the post. There is valuable information in that section as well. 

If you are new to homeopathy and even if you're not so new but want to expand your knowledge, then check out Gateway to Homeopathy: A Guided Study Group Curriculum. It’s a cost-effective way to learn the basics of homeopathy as a member of a group.

Interested in diving even deeper by taking one of my courses? Click here to learn about my offerings. Please review each syllabus and video; search for your symptoms. I’ve tried to make it easy for you to home in on precisely which course will most benefit you.

I hope you understand I’m trying to help YOU develop your confidence in yourself, by yourself. I’m also trying to allow my team to free up some of their phone and email time to work on providing you with additional free information and new courses.

But if you do have any questions (or decide your situation requires a consult with me), we are here.

Please feel free to contact my office via email or phone. (But to prove I’m a good parent, I’m going to make you look up my office contact information for yourself!)

Now get out there and get “fishing” — and don’t forget to pass on the good news of homeopathy!


P.S. I've added value to my most popular course Good Gut, Bad Gut

For everyone that purchases Good Gut, Bad Gut, they'll automatically be registered for a free, live Q&A webinar with me in November 2018. You might want to do this quickly so you will have time to complete the course and then submit your course-related questions ahead of the Live Webinar.

Click here to watch a short informational video and opt-in to receive an infographic From Bad Gut to Good Gut: Twelve Remedies, Twelve Solutions for Common Gut-Related Issues. I produced it to give you hope that real solutions exist.

P.P.S. Attention Gateway study group folks! Gather ten study group participants together and make a group purchase. You'll all get your group purchase discount.   


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.

    My fifteen year old son just asked me what he should take for his sore throat. My typical response is to get the flashlight and look at his throat and then tell him the remedy. But with your post in mind I said, “Here, look at your throat in the mirror and tell me what you see and I will guide you through choosing the correct remedy.” Thanks, Joette! You’re the best!

      Love it! He’s fishing on his own already!

    Love this! Before I ask your office (I have yet to do so) I ask my fellow study group-mates! If I’ve come across conflicting information from your resources, I usually choose whichever was published most recently. Because, new info and new experiences. Like I said, I have yet to come to y’all directly but I find so much comfort and peace knowing that I can, if needed. Respectfully after utilizing all the resources first. Thank you for teaching me how to fish! The best way with the best tools for the best fish!***Hey, real quick, in your post above, you mentioned a remedy card was posted below on this this very post. It might be my phone, but I don’t see it.

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

      We have a remedy card posted that’s relevant to this subject.

      1. Kelly Carter says:

        I see it! I was so curious to what a relevant remedy card would be! Hasaaa!

  3. Kaylee says:

    Haha! Nice remedy card… 😉 I think whoever thought of that had some fun.

  4. Shelly says:

    That is so funny about the googling because that is exactly what I have always done & am now encouraging the members of my Gateway group to do the same. I gave the example of “asthma joette”.
    Thanks for all you do!!! I am empowered to take care of my friends & family!
