The year is 2020! It sounds like science fiction, but it’s real! We’re living in the future we looked forward to.

In fact, I had a goal for this year. Do you remember? I wrote about it way back in 2017 in my blog, Taking Stock: Where We’ve Been and Where We’re Going

I wanted to reach 100,000 families by 2020.

Well, what do you know? Quite some time ago, with your help, we surpassed that number!

My goal was met, so I filed it in the … uh … “accomplished” bin.

Joette Calabrese

In fact, last year on New Year’s Day, I increased my goal.

I endeavored to reach 200,000 families!

Judging from the readership on this blog, the audience for my podcasts and the participants in my Facebook Live events, we are well on our way to achieving it!

But to reach 200,000 families with this medicine we hold dear, we all need to work together. 

Think about the math. If each and every one of you were to introduce homeopathy to two friends, we could increase the number of homeopathic families in this country exponentially.

This means family autonomy. 

Family focus. 

Family values. 

What if you introduced it to three friends? 

Or four?

The thought is staggering. 

The power we have as a group is tremendous.

There is strength in numbers.

As our numbers grow, we can better protect our access to homeopathy for future generations.

However, I realize you need information at your fingertips to help you persuade your family and friends.

So, I’ve created this blog post just for you to use as discussion points. I call it “The 2020 Twenty.” 

In honor of our new year, 2020, here are my 20 reasons why homeopathy is the perfect choice for every family:

20. Homeopathy works. Just. Plain. Works!

19. Homeopathy is inexpensive. Tubes of medicine average between $7 and $15. (Not potentially hundreds or thousands of dollars like conventional medicines.) Plus, it saves on unnecessary medical bills by keeping you out of the doctor’s office.

18. Homeopathy is polite. It doesn’t aggressively slam your body. It works with your body to gently correct the condition.

17. Homeopathy is super-portable. Tiny tubes slip easily into your purse or pocket.

16. Homeopathy is used by hospitals and clinics around the world. In many countries around the world, homeopathy is part of their national medical systems. 

15. Homeopathy is easily learned using my method of Practical Homeopathy®. (Plus, it’s easy to teach to your children!) 

14. Homeopathy has been highly researched over the last 230 years and provides reproducible results. It’s not capricious. The medicine successfully used in the 1700s is the exact same medicine used today.

13. Homeopathy WORKS!!! (I know I said it above, but it bears repeating!)

12. Homeopathy is safe and effective for all age ranges: babies, children, teens, adults, pregnant women and seniors. Generally speaking, your entire family can utilize the same medicines.

11. Homeopathy is trans-species, meaning it works for people, pigs, dogs, cats, cows, chickens …

10. Homeopathy is trans-generational. Our children will use it with their children, who will teach it to their children, and so on and so on, spanning myriad generations.

  9. Homeopathy doesn’t interfere with conventional drugs. This means you can continue to take meds that you're presently taking and still add homeopathy in for the same or different conditions.  However, number 8 takes this idea further. 

  8. Homeopathy helps eliminate the need for conventional drugs if that’s your choice.

  7. Did I mention homeopathy works?!

  6. Homeopathy is curative. It uproots illnesses rather than suppressing them. You know that ear infection that was treated with antibiotics that keeps returning? If homeopathy had been used, this doesn't usually occur. 

  5. Homeopathy keeps you relevant as your children grow into adults. (Believe me — they’ll be calling you often!)

  4. Homeopathy is empowering. It’s a currency of knowledge. You feel the strength, confidence and value of being the competent caregiver of your family.   

  3. Homeopathy allows you to be self-sufficient. No need to depend on anyone else to provide competent medical care to your family. (‘Perfect for emergency situations or during natural catastrophes.)

  2. Homeopathy is used by the elite of the world, including royalty and popes. You know, those who have any and every modern medicine available to them, yet still choose homeopathy. 

And the NUMBER ONE reason to use homeopathy is …

  1. IT WORKS!!! (Wait … have I said that already???)


Given those compelling 20 reasons why homeopathy should be a mainstay of your family’s healthcare, your next question might be, “How do I learn more about it?”

The best way to learn about homeopathy is the very same method I personally employed back in the '80s: learning with others in a group! 

Oh, how I loved my homeopathy group nights. We relished in the delicious knowledge we were gaining, as well as in the camaraderie, support and encouragement.

My successful experience with group learning is precisely why I wrote Gateway to Homeopathy: A Guided Study Group Curriculum. 

My inexpensive guide will hold you by the hand as you learn with others.

Gather your friends and family, and I’ll provide the lessons in my own easy-to-follow, everyday language.

Your group will even have an opportunity to meet with me online so that I can answer any remaining questions you may have from your studies.

This is not only educational; it is FUN!

If you don’t believe how much fun this can be, please take a look at these smiling faces from some of the online study group question-and-answer sessions with me.

People all over the world are learning about homeopathy and having a ball doing it.

P.S. Through an official policy committee, the Federal Government is currently in talks regarding the expansion of Medicare/Medicaid coverage for non-pharmacological treatments for pain. Interestingly enough, homeopathy has solutions.

This May in Orlando, Florida, at the Joint American Homeopathic Conference, I will be presenting my methodologies to an expansive crowd on this very subject. 



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.

    You mentioned in your letter today that you use this homeopathic for your Dad’s fast heart rate. I struggle with this also! But you didn’t leave a link or indicate what remedy you were speaking of. Did it accidentally get left off? I’d LOVE to know! Thank you

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

      I published an article a while ago where I discuss the schedule I used for my father titled My Dad and the Dead Cardiologists. Check it out here https://www.westonaprice.org/health-topics/homeopathy/my-dad-and-the-dead-cardiologists/

  2. Karen says:

    Wonderful post–thank you!! I agree with all of your reasons, but I have a few more!
    1. It’s SO easy to get your children to take the remedies because the little pellets are delicious.
    2. Even if a child swallowed a whole bottle of a remedy, it’s not possible to “overdose” or even have ANY harmful effects (VERY much unlike conventional medicine that put my husband in the hospital at 18 months old when he managed to swallow a bunch of his father’s pills).
    3. Moms can give remedies to children even while they sleep without disturbing them at all (Just a moment ago, I tucked a remedy inside my daughter’s bottom lip because she was coughing in her sleep).
    4. There are remedies for things conventional medicine can not help with, such as cold symptoms, or the “unbalanced” feeling you get when a child keeps you up during the night. Having homeopathy in your corner is like having superpowers!
    I’m sure I could go on and on; There are probably hundreds of reasons I love homeopathy…which is why I’ll keep spreading the word.
    Happy 2020, and thank you, Joette, for all you have taught me so far and all that you’ll teach this coming year. This knowledge is truly priceless! 🙂

    1. Julia says:

      Those 20 reasons are exactly why I keep testing out so many remedies. Reading the list makes my soul feel happy! I used Arnica on a recent flight to Hawaii and wow did that work!! I’ve learned so much this past year from gateway, your blogs, videos and podcasts. Beyond thankful!!

  3. Susan Heller says:

    You have 20/20 vision!

  4. an avid fan says:

    I have linked your site to probably more than 10 people, some I have never even met but only through internet. Your site is amazing and your blog and podcasts full of knowledge! I hope you reach your goal in this year! God bless your work!

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

      Many thanks! I hope this finds you and your family well and prosperous in 2020.

  5. Joyce Dickson says:

    My 3 girls and their families (13 grandkids) live close by and come often for tea and exercise videos. The grandkids know their homeopathy remedies, most have never had antibiotics! You are our family friend, we all often say “Joette says…” My granddaughters just cured one of our lambs of chronic diarrhea with the Banerji protocol that you taught us! Nope, we won’t allow you to retire completely! We love you, Joette. Thank you!

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

      Joyce, Thanks for your lovely words of encouragement.
      It sounds like you have a very rich and joyful life. Keep up the good work!

  6. BEA COLEMAN says:

    Joette, I, my family, friends & many strangers have benefited greatly from your sharing of homeopathy. I belong to several natural health FB groups, & I literally share your protocols every single day. I know that I’ve brought homeopathy to at least 5 new families ever single week. Your 200,000 goal will be re
    ached sooner than you think!

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

      Thanks for your good work Bea. We all need to keep this going for the sake of humanity.

  7. awacs says:

    you said that “it works” 3 times,
    thank you far all the resources and info

  8. Pat Martin says:

    The FDA is currently trying to OUTLAW homeopathy! What are you doing to support this wonderful medicine? I have heard that they will also outlaw(make it illegal) to order remedies from outside the USA.

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

      watch for my upcoming podcast that will offer some powerful solutions.

  9. Lisa Rosamino says:

    I love Homeopathy for 1 HUGE reason! It led me to you JOETTE! And it led me to the amazing resources, protocols, podcasts, courses and friends I have met through you and Practical Homeopathy. I also love it because I can help my pets, my family, my friends, and even strangers on the street! 🙂

  10. Valerie says:

    I worked at a health food store, (my last day was Saturday) …every time someone came back and said “oh my gosh it’s gone!”, or “it changed my husbands life” or “the pain is gone and I didn’t need to take the prescription!”….each time was like the first time I helped someone. It always feels like a miracle, a gift, I can’t really describe it but it’s the best feeling ever!
    Homeopathy and you, Joette have changed my life and given me passion and joy like nothing ever has…except my dog!

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

      Valerie, I’m sorry you’re no longer working at the health food store. Apparently, they’ve lost someone knowledgable and passionate. Many thanks for your kind words. Your dog is a lucky dog!

      1. Valerie says:

        Retirement is better! I can devote all my time to homeopathy!

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

          ‘Love it!

  11. Elesha Bressler says:

    I have some additions to the list! For me it
    1. It redeems our health by healing issues that have been passed down generationally, preparing our body’s for healthier future generations.
    2. I am just a novice, but I have a sneaky feeling the first law of thermodynamics is strongly applicable to homeopathy. I love that the Creator has set this world up with laws that promote homeopathy!
    3. It superceeds other medicines and modalities. The more I use it, the more I realize that if it’s the right medicine it works, no matter if I just ate food or drank coffee, if I just came out of surgery pumped up with drugs, or am holding my cell phone while taking a dose. It is so gentle, yet so very strong.
    4. I can use it as part of my homeschool curriculum! My little ones are exposed to science everytime we sit down to take our protocols and I ask, when do you take this, or what do I take when I have xyz.
    5. It has given me new life. As a mom, I needed the help it gave me during hard times (sepia, ingatia, coffea etc) and the hope it has given me as a new found passion.

    Thank you Joette for teaching us. I would not be who I am today without homeopathy.

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

      Thanks for your thoughts. Duly noted.

  12. Mayda says:

    I can still remember the days when the minute the kids got sick or had some symptom I would google your name and their symptom, while my husband would say “What are you doing?”… and I’d say I’m trying to figure out what to do. I have done exactly as you recommend Joette, and still doing. Funny enough, (Wonderful enough), it has yet to fail.
    How can one count the ways:
    Flu gone.
    Stomach Virus, dealt with.
    Croup, coughs, asthma, gone.
    Colds, gone.
    Ear Infections, gone.
    Strep throat, sore throat, gone.
    Concussions, dealt with.
    Bruised muscles, gone.
    Tooth extraction pain, gone.
    Anxiety, gone.
    Monster mom, buried.

    Just the other day, I fell while trying ice skating on my wrist. Shortly after we got in the car and I was going to start shedding tears because the pain was excruciating, while at the same time I threw in my mouth Aconite 30c. I KID you not. I swallowed that tear. Didn’t come out. Couldn’t shed it. Pain and shock were gone. (LOL).
    That’s Homeopathy, IF ever you could define its limits.
