Wasn’t it Maurice Chevalier who sang “Thank Heaven for Little Girls”? Indeed, as the song goes, “They grow up in the most delightful way.”

That is unless they grow up too fast … unnaturally fast.

A seven-year-old should be playing with dolls, learning multiplication, developing language skills, and coloring. They shouldn’t be shopping for maxi pads.

Unfortunately, an article in the New Yorker, Why More and More Girls Are Hitting Puberty Early, notes that an increasing number of girls in industrialized countries are experiencing menarche much earlier than previous generations did.

Is it any wonder? Our modernized society is rife with endocrine-disrupting chemicals, such as preservatives, pesticides and chemicals added to plastics (BPA, for instance). Little girls — and little boys alike — are exposed to so many synthetic hormone disrupters in their food, hygiene products, and clothing that it’s not shocking their systems are out of whack.

When my children were growing up, my maternal instinct (and the reading I did) convinced me not to buy any foods or toys that were in or made of plastic. Now that these reports of early puberty due to hormonal tampering are increasing, even my husband said, “You were right!”

While it’s always satisfying to be right, I sure wish I weren’t. This is a societal tragedy! What are we doing to our children?

Avoidance becomes more and more difficult with each passing year. These toxins are becoming ubiquitous! Even the clothes we put on our children and their bedding are often treated with flame retardants. (You know… to protect those kids who smoke in bed!) This is why I urge everyone to wear only cotton or linen — natural fibers — next to the skin. A waterproof jacket is one thing, but synthetic undergarments are quite another.

So, obviously, I stand with other mothers fighting to remove them from our daily lives.

But with homeopathy, we can possess such freedom from the angst of external influences. The Practical Homeopath™ says, “Give me the name of the condition, and I’ll give you the remedy that has a history of righting the ship.”

Premature puberty is no exception.

However, before getting further into this discussion, I want to underscore that we only utilize homeopathy in the face of a pathology — a textbook, diagnosable, “Holy cow, something is wrong” condition. We don’t jump to conclusions. We never cavalierly employ a homeopathic because we simply wonder if something might be off.

Homeopathy is medicine, my friends. I cannot stress that enough.

While homeopathic medicines are relatively safe compared to drugs of commerce and are free from dangerous side effects, they do act upon the body as a medicine! So, we do not interfere with our bodies' delicate balance without a clearly defined pathology.

You can learn the nuances of treating female hormonal conditions (among other ailments unique to women) in my course, Feminopathy: How You Can Correct Female Ailments Using Safe, Inexpensive and Effective Homeopathy. Download a free, helpful infographic by clicking on that link.

Of course, the conventional medical machine has devised an intervention for premature puberty. It’s the use of Lupron, a medication that blocks reproductive hormones. Well, that makes sense, doesn’t it? (That’s sarcasm, my dear reader.)

A little girl is becoming a woman before she knows how to ride a bike because of chemical interference in her natural development. So, the industrial medical complex’s answer is MORE chemical interference. More tinkering with hormones. More unnatural meddling.

How has our society gone this far astray?

They can keep their Lupron.

I have consulted with mothers whose seven- and eight-year-old daughters have begun to develop breasts or begin menses as part of a diagnosed premature puberty onset.

It has been shown that Pulsatilla nigricans 30, once daily, provides the usual success we expect from homeopathy. It’s often the gentle nudge a little girl’s body needs to recalibrate the hormonal pandemonium caused by the onslaught of synthetic chemicals in her environment. It allows our little girls to mature when their bodies are truly ready, not when artificially induced by extrinsic influences.

We’ve previously talked about adding Pulsatilla to your well-curated homeopathy kit for digestive disorders from fake dairy products. We’ve also discussed it as a counter for menstrual changes after chemical exposure and for weepy winter blues. But I wanted to add this additional information to highlight what a valuable medicine Pulsatilla is.

Let’s face it: All homeopathic medicines are valuable! In fact, it’s challenging for me to narrow it down to just a few to have on hand. It all depends on what you and your family can reasonably expect to experience in your lives.

But the way I see it is you can never own too many homeopathic medicines. Even if your family never needs it, a loved one’s family may! And you’ll be glad you have the homeopathy education and appropriate medicine to share in their time of need.

It’s a marvelous way to pass on the good news of homeopathy!

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.

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.

    Thanks for this post. I had a daughter who “started” at age 9. I thought that was early. The doctor didn’t seem phased. Now I have the opposite concern. I have a daughter who is 14 and shows no signs. The doctor we started with (standard pediatrician) says she is ok and it will happen. Currently we are seeking out a naturopathic doctor.

    Of the more than 40,000 chemicals used in consumer products in the US, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, less than 1% have been rigorously tested for human safety, and none have been tested for safety when multiple chemicals are used together.

    In 1996, Congress ordered the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to test all pesticides used on food for endocrine disruption by 1999. Because of the chemical industries vast financial resources, financial influence and clout the EPA still hasn’t done this even today.

    A study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller, in more than 80% of urine samples drawn from children and adults in the U.S. — a finding scientists called “disturbing.”“ https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/cdc-study-cancer-glyphosate-roundup/?

    Pesticide atrazine can turn male frogs into females

    Atrazine, one of the world’s most widely used pesticides, wreaks havoc with the sex lives of adult male frogs, emasculating three-quarters of them and turning one in 10 into females, according to a new study by University of California, Berkeley, biologists.
    The 75 percent that are chemically castrated are essentially “dead” because of their inability to reproduce in the wild, reports UC Berkeley’s Tyrone B. Hayes, professor of integrative biology.

    Hi Joette, can this be given to boys too? My partners son is 9 – already 5′ 9″ with size 11(UK) feet & already starting puberty. Thanks

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, PHom M says:

      This is not generally used for boys in this setting. At this time most are not as concerned about boys becuase the trend is for there to be too much estrogen in society, not testosterone.

  4. Caitlin says:

    What about precocious puberty in boys?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, PHom M says:

      At this time most are not as concerned about boys becuase the trend is for there to be too much estrogen in society, not testosterone.

  5. Luciana says:

    Thanks you for this post and for your answer to the comments. I was also wondering if that medicine would apply for a boy. I understand that testosterone is not as issue, but hormone disruption substances could affect testosterone too, right? What to do if a 10y-old boy get oermanent teeth a bit earlier and has more and more hair on his legs and back?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, PHom M says:

      I don’t consider what you describe a pathology.
      Hence no reason to treat.

  6. Hannah says:

    How long would you give pulsatilla 30c 1D to a 9 year old girl who is already showing signs of puberty as in your example above? Usually you recommend 8 weeks but I am wondering how you would know to stop in this case?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, PHom M says:

      Without taking the case it would be difficult to say but we use a homeopathic for as long as its needed. That is, usully its 8 weeks and assess at that time.

  7. Ann says:

    Hi Joette,would this apply to a 9 year old girl who just today started complaining about pain in her left nipple.I can feel a tiny bulb like under.She’s never been v***ed, and never had any type of medication. Also, she is dairy intolerant based on symptoms she’s had since she was very young,like bloating (she still seems to be get bloated often), breathing issues and constipation.She’s also been breastfed for 3.7 years.Not sure what is going on, but this really worries me, as my almost 12 years old just started this symptom too, but she’s almost 3 years older.
    Would love to know if I could use this remedy.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, PHom M says:

      I don’t like to use homeopathic medicines for conditions that are only a day old unless they represent an acute such as a cold. The same holds true for conditions that may be normal or just fleeting.

      1. Ann says:

        Ok.Thank you.If this continues, should I use the remedy?
        The reason I’m asking is that my other daughter had the same exact complaint, pain in the breast and could feel a tiny bud under the nipple.Later on,moved to the other breast, and also could feel a tiny bud.The pain eventually stopped, but the tiny buds are there.
