In Walt Disney’s film, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” Sneezy was adorable and humorous. In real life, however, excessive sneezing can be embarrassing, unpleasant and sometimes downright distressing.

I should know. My husband suffered from intense sneezing jags, and there were no friendly bluebirds or catchy tunes anywhere in sight. Once, he sneezed nearly 40 times in quick succession. Finally, he became so physically weak from the onslaught, he was literally brought to his knees!

Now, before you start reaching for the homeopathy to stop one or two little sneezes, let me say this: “Don’t overreact! Don’t take sneezing by itself too seriously. A few sneezes in a row are not a big deal. It’s just your body’s way of getting rid of an irritant, allergen, or foreign substance.”

If you’ve been aggressively peppering your dinner before your sneezing jag occurs, you don’t need to take action.

But if you notice pervasive sneezing — incapacitating sneezing — then it’s time to make some determinations. First, I want to make this clear: We’re not simply addressing the mere act of sneezing. No. Our focus is on tackling the underlying condition regardless of its cause.

So, what is associated with the sneezing? What condition is being ushered in? A cold? An allergy? It really doesn’t matter. If a pathology presents with severe, repetitive, all-encompassing sneezing, then Arsenicum album 6 is the generally accepted homeopathic medicine of choice.

When my husband collapsed from that particularly crippling sneezing jag I mentioned, I gave him Arsenicum 6 as an SOS. Also, I encouraged him to continue it twice a day until he no longer felt unwell. Not only did Arsenicum stop the event; most importantly, it also began to nudge his body to correct the underlying disorder naturally.

Arsenicum was so efficacious in my husband’s case that he no longer suffers from those agonizing sneezing fits!

You may recall, I’ve written about excessive sneezing before in Break Out of Prison. In it, I discussed Galphimia glauca for unrelenting bouts of sneezing. But as I always say: “In homeopathy, there’s usually more than one way to skin a cat.” So, I try to provide my students with several medicines to consider, allowing them to make their own well-informed decisions.

Now, uprooting allergies is a dense topic requiring much more time and study than a simple blog post can allow. If you want to become as proficient as possible in addressing allergies, may I suggest you take my course, appropriately entitled Allergic?! I’ve been there. I had chronic allergies for years. My allergies were so severe, I was relegated to a life indoors away from perfumes, flowers, pesticides and restaurant food. Let me share what has worked for my clients, my family and me. I want to share with you what I have learned in my 34+ years in homeopathy!

It’s my mission to bring homeopathic medicines to every medicine cabinet across the globe!

Once you’ve experienced it in action, you can help in the cause by passing on the good news of homeopathy to friends, neighbors, and relatives!

P.P.S. If you’re not ready to invest in a full course quite yet, there is no better way to begin your journey in homeopathy than by joining a Gateway to Homeopathy Study Group. For far less than a doctor’s visit co-pay, you’ll start to learn how to observe the entire picture of a condition and how to use that observation to choose the best medicine for your unique situation. You’ll develop confidence and competence as you learn many practical protocols.

All that, while also meeting and making new like-minded friends — friendships that can last a lifetime!

My curriculum makes it easy to start your own group, OR you can join a group that is forming. You can find the upcoming groups at Joette’s Study Group: Find Your New Study Group Friends.

I urge you to join a group today. Group study is what catapulted my abilities to care for my family decades ago.

Buy your copy of Gateway to Homeopathy! The inexpensive cost of this curriculum will be repaid many times over with the money you’ll save on unnecessary medical visits and expensive allopathic drugs.

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.

    Would the same remedy work for hiccups?

      To get rid of hiccups, do a deep breathing exercise. It works every time for me. Breathe into your lungs absolutely as much air as you can, then breathe out to expel all of your air. Do that three times. Hope it works for you.

    I have found arsenicum 30c working for me for the sneezing (never tried ars6 though). I tried the same remedy also for weakness caused by chemical sensitivity but didnt find it helpful.
    Anyway.. always happy to find sonething that works for something 😀
    Thank you so much Joette for all this important work you do <3

    I usually think of Nat Mur for sneezing but it’s good to know about Arsenicum Album. For hiccups I usually grab Ignatia which does the trick.

  4. Rachel says:

    Mrs. Calabrese,

    Thank you for fleshing this out for us!

    May I ask, you said that the etiology doesn’t matter, whether it’s a cold or allergies, etc. The other day someone was having sneezing fits and tried Ars 6 for awhile, but it did not help. It wasn’t until further symptoms of a cold developed & they began Aconite + Bryonia and ColdCalm that they felt better. This led me to conclude that the etiology in this case mattered, but I must be seeing it incorrectly as you say it does not. Can you help me understand please?

    Thank you so much!

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH says:

      Sneezing fits that result from allergies are worthy of treatment because they can be ongoing and represent a chronic condition. But to treat sneezing related to a cold? That doesn’t make sense.

  5. w says:

    Some say that homeopathic pills can be dissolved in water, but some say that will make the remedy lose its effectiveness. Can you tell me which is accurate?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH says:

      It changes it, which doesn’t mean it necessarily removes its effectiveness.

  6. Barbara says:

    This works so good I live in tx and they have what they call cedar fever for 5 yrs I’ve been so miserable sneezing my brains out one day I trued this and man it worked so well it’s awesome from nov-February all I did was sneeze I’ve been hunting and pecking with different homeopathy none really helped but this worked like a charm can’t thank you enough for this remedy!!!
