Mother on board?

Is your mother-in-law “not on board” with your use of homeopathy?

Does your best friend think you’re a wee bit nuts when you pull your remedies out of your purse?

Are you having a hard time getting your skeptical husband to put the pellets under his tongue?

It’s frustrating to believe so strongly in a medicine that has made such a difference in your own life, and not be able to explain it convincingly to others.

So, I’ve come up with a way to help you with that. Let’s call it “Operation Mother-in-Law.” Okay, okay … you’re right. Maybe calling it the “Gateway to Homeopathy” would be better.

You’ve read my blogs. You’ve listened to my podcasts. But now you’re eager to learn more. This program will be exactly what it says — your gateway to a deeper education. I’ve created it not only to help you become more proficient with homeopathy but also to help you spread the word to others.

“Gateway to Homeopathy” is a guided study group curriculum. Learning in a group setting is always more fun, and I’m convinced that it’s usually more productive than studying alone — because you share vibrant conversation, swap success stories, and answer your mutual questions together.

In fact, I began my journey into homeopathy by forming my own study group with my group of friends over 30 years ago, so I know this method works.

I’m sure you’ve already tried your best to introduce everyone you know to homeopathy. But unfortunately, sometimes a lone voice can be unconvincing.

By including a skeptic or two in this study group, you can allow my curriculum to demonstrate that this is not just your narrative. In fact, those in the class who come with enthusiasm will do the convincing for you.

Each week as members report their successes, I guarantee your mother-in-law (and skeptical friends) will become more intrigued.

You bring the friends, and we’ll deliver easy-to-follow lessons in the practical, safe, effective use of homeopathy. Think of this as a Tupperware party with homeopathic cures as the hostess gift.

Whether you are a beginner and know absolutely nothing, or you have used homeopathy in the past and now want to learn more, this study guide is for you.

(If you’ve already gone through the “Gateway to Homeopathy” program, you’ll be excited to know that we’ll soon be launching “Gateway to Homeopathy II”.

It will be a more in-depth curriculum designed to further your existing education. So, stay tuned!)

Now, the first thing people say to me is, “I just don’t have the time.”

But I’m betting that you do have time to get together with family and friends during the week. Well, that’s exactly what this will be!

You’ll simply be getting together with your loved ones, while at the same time, learning a subject so important, so practical, so inexpensive and so effective to maintaining your family’s health. “Gateway to Homeopathy” is life-changing — of course you have the time!

(Plus, it’s going to be fun. And a little fun is always a healthy thing.)

So, gather your mother-in-law, your best friend, your neighbor … anyone you can think of who might be helped by homeopathy (which, let’s face it, is everyone).

Through this guided study group, you can let them learn from me (just as you have). You’ll be an integral part of fulfilling my goal: to bring homeopathy to 100,000 families by the year 2020.


P.S. Want to know one of my all-time favorite medicines for summer? Calendula.

When used in a tincture (that is, in alcohol) it can be diluted 1:20, poured over minor wounds and added to dressings. For example, this ratio is 1 teaspoon of Calendula to 20 teaspoons of water. This becomes an antiseptic for open wounds that I’ve used time and again on our livestock, pets and of course, family members.

It is also a premier medicine when used as an ointment. Check out Boiron’s First-Aid Ointment for cuts, scrapes, and minor burns. Remember to keep these kinds of tools in your summer kit when you leave for picnics and vacations!

P.P.S. Some of you may know our Roving Reporter, Paola, who hosts my podcast and helped write my Study Group Curriculum. This clever homesteader occasionally teaches my study group classes and she has one starting on September 21, 2017 at 7 pm central time. 



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.

    1:20 ratio. Did you really mean to say that is 1 tsp calendula to 20 drops of water or 1 drop to 20 drops/1tsp to 20 tsps? Thanks!

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

      Thanks for the heads up. I just corrected it.

  2. Natalie Peterson says:

    I would really like to participate in a study group but not into asking any friends yet. I wonder if there are others out there who would want to be in a group that feel the same way. Yes have been using homeopathy for about 7 years now with much success. Thanks!

      note the PPS on this blog and you can join in a group now forming on line.

    Unfortunately, trying to convince true skeptics is usually a waste of time. You can tell them all about it until you’re blue in the face. You can send/give them all the literature and website references in the world. You can mention how you’re using it on you/your family and the wonderful, miraculous results. But in the end, if the true skeptic is closed-minded, and brain-washed by western medicine, there’s nothing you can do. Sorry to be a debbie-downer, but that’s my true experience with people.

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

      It certainly can be frustrating. I urge folks to go after those who are on the fence, who have not yet developed an opinion or are unhappy with drugs. If its too frustrating, hunker down, learn as much as you can and emerge a butterfly when they finally come around. Many eventually do.

    I love calendula so much! I always make sure it is in my organic soaps and lotions, and I use Hyland’s spray calendula on my skin all the time to help with rashes and such. Recently, it’s helping clear up an odd rash on my puppy’s tummy. I don’t know what I would do without it!

  5. Mick says:

    Joette, I have a question about the 1:20 dilution ratio. In the Gateway to Homeopathy book and the document First Aid in a Pinch, you suggest a 1:4 dilution ratio. Will either one suffice? Is one dilution better than the other, depending on the situation? And here’s another question regarding the PPS above: For those of us who have already participated in a study group but whose groups were too small to avail ourselves of subsequent benefits for subsequent courses, is there a way to combine online with others in order to make that possible? Would your office know of others who would be interested in doing that? And if so, would you be willing to put interested people in contact with each other? I know of 3 people in our study group who would like to take additional courses if we could find several others who would “pool” with us. (P.S. Our study group thoroughly enjoyed our Q&A with you last week. Thanks for taking the time to answer all of our questions… I know that we had a ton of them.)

    Can I make the diluted calendula uo ahead if time and store it so it’s ready when needed? If so, how long is it good for?
