Motherhood Is a Lifetime Gig



Joette Calabrese, Practical Homeopathy

You know what today is: It’s Mother’s Day! Whether you are a mother or simply have one, we all universally celebrate this day. (more…)

A Mother, Her Kids and Aconite


Joette Calabrese, Practical Homeopathy

Mothers come in all shapes, sizes and even species. Yet one thing all mothers have in common is their fierce, protective and nurturing instincts. But instincts can only take us so far. Education is imperative so Mom knows what to do when unexpected health conditions strike. (more…)

Leave No Stone Unturned (Tonsil Stone, That Is)

Joette Calabrese, Practical Homeopathy

I’ve received a number of requests to cover tonsil stones. To be honest, I wasn’t sure if this subject would be prevalent enough to interest all my readers.

Indeed, some people are prone to tonsil stones, while others aren’t. (more…)

Homeopathy Hints from Holstein

joette Calabrese

Hi. I’m Holstein.

What? You were expecting a cow? Well, that’s speciesism right there. Do I look like a cow?

Nope, I’m a Fox Terrier, and Joette told me I’m cute as a button. So there.

(Harumph. Cow, indeed.) (more…)

Practical Homeopathy® for UTIs

Practical Homeopathy, Joette Calabrese


Years ago (eleven of them, to be precise), I wrote a newsletter on homeopathy for UTIs entitled When It’s Hard to Go. Readers who’ve found it through web searches have contacted my team because there were no potencies included in the article. (more…)

Conquering a Sore Throat with Mercurius sol

Joette Calabrese, Practical Homeopathy

Folks, the list is as long as my arm:

Saltwater gargle
Hot tea with lemon
Chicken soup
Apple cider vinegar
Cayenne pepper
Gargle with aspirin
OTC synthetic chemical throat sprays

Christ Is Risen!



Joette Calabrese

The fresco “Glory of Resurrected Jesus” by Guido Reni (1575-1642) in the cupola of the duomo in Ravenna, Italy


“Christus surréxit!”

“Surréxit vere, allelúja” 

This traditional greeting in the Catholic church describes a blessed miracle that occurred two thousand years ago.


“Christ is risen!”

“He is risen indeed, Alleluia!”

My dear friends, for Christians, today is our most sacred day — our holiest day — Easter Sunday.

As the angel of the Lord explained to Mary and Mary Magdalene as they came to see Christ’s tomb in Matthew 28:6, “He is not here; for he has risen, as he said.” Indeed, it was a pronouncement that has since offered hope as it echoes around the world.

So, from my family, myself and my entire team here at Practical Homeopathy®, we take a break from our regular routine to wish “Buona Pasqua a te e alla tua famiglia.” Happy Easter to you and your family.
