Not Sensitive Anymore, but I Get “Delhi Belly”

For today’s blog, I write to you from the far-away land of India. After spending many a cold winter month in the gray and cold state of New York, the majestic country of India always brings a welcomed burst of color, warmth and a shot of vibrancy. 

I have always enjoyed traveling, but now I enjoy it even more, especially after I learned how to curb the effects of jet lag using homeopathy. https://joettecalabrese.com/blog/homeopathic-remedies/no-jet-lag-on-my-trip-to-india/ .

I also enjoy it much more since I am no longer allergic or overly sensitive to chemicals, perfumes and such.

About 30+ years ago, I would never have ventured to sit in sometimes fume-filled airplanes, stay in occasionally musty hotels, eat airline food and even be sprayed with insecticides upon landing in India. Yes, the airline attendants actually walk down the aisles with a spray of insecticide and mist everyone with the stuff. I would have simply stayed home where the air is superbly fresh on the top of my ski hill, my food is homegrown, and my office is cleaned with essential oils and unscented soaps.

But I’m a different person now. I have been transformed. Changed for the good. Homeopathy cured me and opened up my previously allergic and sad-little-stay-at-home- life. https://joettecalabrese.com/blog/is-homeopathy-enough-plus-one-of-my-remedies-for-allergies/

On my first trip to India six years ago, when I finally completed the 35-hour journey, I thought the hardest part of the trip was over. Little did I know about the Kolkata traffic. The whizzing cars all act more like a tangled bowl of pasta than the tidy neat lines I’m used to in my hometown. Here, you don’t honk at someone if you’re angry (I’ve yet to see that happen); rather, honking is constant and seems capricious, but actually isn’t. It's what I call the “Kolkata traffic language.” There’s order to it.

Imagine cars intermingled with goats, motorcycles, trucks with people tied on, and rickshaws powered by motor or by legs. Even the interpretation of traffic signs is different: “Green” still means go, but “yellow” means go faster, and “red” means just go anyway. I remember feeling quite queasy and green around the gills after my first ride on the Kolkata roller coaster.
Kolkata is a wild and wonderful place.


And so, it is here in Kolkata that I have perfected how to treat various ills for myself and my husband so differently from those in the U.S. such as:

Motion sickness 

Delhi Belly. (Trust me, it affects a lot more than just the belly.)

Jet lag

The faint odor of mold in even the best hotels

You might be asking yourself, “Wouldn’t that be a lot of medicines to take? ”

To be honest, when I was extremely sensitive, I probably would not have taken all of these; only those that would have helped me with the most severe of my symptoms.

But today, I don’t take any of these medicines. Why? Because I no longer need them. My immune system is capable of ridding my body of these ailments on its own, thanks to my 100% reliance on and use of homeopathy.

So even when I push the envelope, I don’t suffer.

That is, except for when I first arrive. Each time I visit, I inevitably get Delhi Belly (most commonly known as dysentery). I take my homeopathic medicines when it happens, and I’m over it in a few hours, regardless of the severity of the event. Lest you think this is just a touch of nausea, allow me to assure you that Delhi Belly comes on so fast and so furious that I barely have time to get the medicines in me. Without being too graphic, everything on my inside wants to be on my outside!

However, these otherwise grueling ailments don't just happen in India, so if you find these same ills plague you back in Ohio or Alaska or any other roads you may travel, I urge you to give these methods a try. Once you see how effective they are, be sure to pass on the good word of homeopathy. It works!

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.

    When you travel, are you able to keep the airport officials from x-raying your homeopathic remedies? Just curious how that works. Thanks! Thanks so much for taking the time on your travels to keep teaching!

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

      The only officials who have not honored my request to keep them out of x-rays are those in Dubai. They still all work after having gone through a few times over the years. I take the precaution, but to be honest, they seem to be more durable than any of us imagined.

  2. Kimberley Colangelo says:

    Thank you Joette for the wonderful visuals! And of course as always, your much appreciated information. Safe travels!

    Hello Joette,

    Hope that you a fantastic trip. Have been in touch with Doctor Banerji to threat one of my patient who has inoperable brain cancer. He is very devoted and is helping me with my case even though I know that he is very busy. Bring back with you some of the tremendous knowledge that they have. Hope that you will share your experience with us.

    How is Dr. Prasanta doing?

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

    When you look at the time delay you can see what I’m saying when women hardly have a prayer in this day and yet they also have the world. I say this in that I see women having the sunlight and hope/ education as Jotette is teaching I just felt it was important to the that it is a challenge in some society’s daily living and yet I’m very hopeful.

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

      I’m afraid I don’t recommend homeopathy schools in the US since they so frequently change. I can’t keep up with them.
