Thanks to each of you who joined me on my first, free webinar called, “The 5 Most Common Mistakes Parents Make in Their Children’s Health.” We had a great turnout and I hope that many mothers (and others!) are encouraged to give homeopathy a try in their own homes.


In case you weren’t able to attend, I’d like to share some easy remedy suggestions that you can administer for popular pathologies, instead of resorting to over-the-counter meds, antibiotics and all the other drugs that you’re advised by the medical establishment to use.


THIS is how you set your purpose into motion.  This is how you reclaim your God-given right to take care of your children.


This is how you can easily create a home setting where you’ll be prepared for anything. Don’t wait until it happens; learn this stuff now.

  • Rhus tox instead of Tylenol for chicken pox
  • Belladonna instead of acetaminophen for fevers over 104°
  • Hypericum instead of Vicodin for dental work
  • Chamomilla or Belladonna instead of codeine for ear infections
  • Arnica instead of Ibuprofen for strains, sprains and injuries in general
  • Coffea instead of Lunesta for insomnia
  • Aurum instead of Zoloft for mild depression
  • Staphasagria or Cantharis instead of antibiotics for UTI’s
  • Nux vomica or Arsenicum album instead of Imodium or Xifaxin for diarrhea


With the right tools, you’ll be well prepared for the typical illnesses that most families face.


Homeopathic remedies are the best tools we have; you and your family deserve nothing less!

If you’d like to learn more about raising your family without drugs, consider joining me and other moms throughout the world for my first, year-long webinar course, “The How to Raise a Drug Free Family System.” Check out more details here!


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.

    I ave recommended this course to family members embarking on a parental course!

    1. What a wonderful idea! Thank you.

  2. Pam says:

    Thank you for sharing on this better alternative.

    Though I don’t fully use the full spectrum of homeopathic remedies, or even the full spectrum of “easy” homeopathy (cell salts), I do use a few. It is so wonderful to not be trapped by drugs of any sort and have that toxic load added to the body especially since there is so much otherwise we consume or are exposed to that does add to that load.

    It’s been at least 5-6 years since I’ve taken even such as ibuprofen. And then it was only one or two doses once a month. Haven’t taken vitamin tablets either now for a few years. It’s been wonderful to have better alternatives.

    Though I’ve made choices that affect my health, I have to give credit to the Great Physician for His great guidance, care, strengthening & healing. A real blessing which has allowed me to participate in a number of high intensity fitness activities which I love. Even things I did not do at a younger age.

    I hope more get on board.

      Natural methods do work, I’m proof. I tried drugs and meicadtions but nothing treated my acid reflux permanently. What worked for me was to modify my diet and lifestyle. I now eat small meals more often and exercise just a few minutes a day to keep my acid reflux away.Best of luck.

  3. Thanks Joette. I’m printing this out and passing it out to my yoga students.

  4. Amy says:

    i really like this list of alternative options. thanks so much!

  5. Thanks so much, Pam, Christine, and Amy! I love to see people taking control of their own health and achieving real wellness.

  6. Susie says:

    Well… Thank you, first of all. And second, I feel so awful about TYLENOL! NEVER again. The last high fever of 104 (my 5 year old) I was so hesitate about giving it to him. And I didn’t not listen to myself. I am throwing all of my “medicine” away. I am purchasing the “kit”. I want to incorporate homeopathy in this household. Which kit do you recommend? THANK YOU for this information! I am a changed MOM!

    1. We’ve all made mistakes as moms. I know I have, but if my personal story proves anything it’s that homeopathy can bring about health even after allopathic drugs have been overused. My new system is all about how to move forward with your family’s health. For kit info, please contact our office at (716)941-1045.

    In our house, each person has a different go-to remedy for strep. Mine is phytolacca, my husbands is mercury, and my son is belladonna. Here is a post on how we treated my son’s last bout of strep. http://www.livingcrunchy.com/2012/02/healing-strep-without-antibiotics/

    Wonderful! Would love to see this stuff go more mainstrem!

  9. Jennifer C. says:

    Where can I purchase these homeopathic remedies?

    1. Most health food stores carry common homeopathic remedies like Arnica and Belladonna in 30C or lower potencies. For more difficult to find remedies, please contact our office at (716) 941-1045 for more info.

    Just sent to friend who I been telling about how wonderful Homeopathy is. She gets UTI a lot. so Hope she tries it and finds relief.

  11. Jane says:

    In the above chart, where you say Aurum instead of Zoloft for mild depression.

    Is that Aurum Metallicum?

  12. Linda says:

    How can we answer when someone asks why the FDA is looking into a Belladonna-containing homeopathic remedy that “caused seizures” in a toddler? This was a sound bite on my news station this week. I am worried this is a paving the way to ban some of our remedies. Any explanation would be helpful.

    The link above is no longer valid as the website no longer exists (http://www.livingcrunchy.com/2012/02/healing-strep-without-antibiotics/). Do you have this article on your website too?

    How do you know how often to take and how much

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, PHom M says:

      The number of pills that comprise a dose is printed on the side of the bottle.
      How often to take depends on the circumstances.
      That’s what I teach in my Gateway to Homeopathy online study group.
      I urge you to consider joining one.


      You’ll not regret it.
