The Wrong Question Begets the Wrong Answer: Ear Pain, Teeth Pain and Homeopathy

addtext_com_MjE0OTM0MTE4MTIz

Here’s a little exchange I recently had with a student of mine.

QUESTION: Based on what I have learned from your webinars, I  used Chamomilla 200C with great success on my granddaughter. She had a really bad ear infection and within an hour (and after two doses), she fell into peaceful sleep. This was after nearly two days of screaming and crying and a history of this, which had been treated repeatedly with antibiotics. It’s been nearly a year and she’s not had another incident since. This is pretty significant, given she had practically lived on antibiotics for the last year or so for repeated infections.

However, around that last incident, my daughter was curious about the remedy and asked her pediatrician about it. After he scribbled down the script for yet another round of antibiotics and a brief discussion about surgery as the next step, he looked up chamomile on the net and declared that it is dangerous because it is a blood thinner. What’s up with that? (more…)


5 Reasons to Own a Homeopathy Kit (and My Favorite Remedy for Soft Tissue Infections)

Homeopathy Remedy KitIn one of my most recent blogs, I told the story of a late-night drive to my son’s when he called on me for help.

When the call came, I quickly gathered my red Top 100 Remedy kit, a couple of my homeopathy books, a Ball canning jar of my bone broth and off I went.

After administering a few different remedies from my kit, I finally fell asleep in the chair by his bed.

The reason I could fall asleep was that, after six hours, a few missteps and finally the correct remedy, my son, was enough improved that he, too, fell asleep and the worst of his illness was over.

It should be noted that I was able to try a few different remedies because I had my kit.

There is nothing like having healing at your arm’s length.

It was my kit, my son, and me. (A few prayers too.)

4 Strategies for a Perfect Grin

 

 

1.) Bones, Fat and Cream:

Build and maintain healthy teeth by keeping a plentiful amount of calcium-rich and high-fat foods in your daily diet. For robust bones, drink raw milk daily. High-quality cheese is another good source; go for raw cheeses whenever you can. Yogurt and kefir are two superb dairy foods, and they’re even more digestible thanks to their live enzymes and probiotics. Skip the reduced-fat version, and if you’re ambitious, make your own.

Foods cooked, baked and fried (yes, I said fried) in coconut oil, butter, tallow or lard provide high fats, as does the skin of chickens, nitrate-free ham and bacon. Don’t forget to include marrow bones in this equation too.

I teach my students and clients that it’s always best to get your nutrients from foods … or superfoods … not vitamin pills. Not only are nutrients in their original food source easier for the body to access and absorb, but they are also found in conjunction with other vitamins, minerals and fats that help the body utilize the food to its fullest potential.

In short, don’t short-change yourself with pricey supplements; they’re frequently made of questionable ingredients, such as soy, and can lead to an excess of a given nutrient. That can lead to vitamin toxicity, which is highly unlikely if you eat your nutrients instead of taking them. (more…)


Mint Q & A

Frequently, my clients ask me how and when to avoid mint while they’re using homeopathic remedies.  If you’ve ever had minty questions, I hope you, too, will benefit from my thoughts on the matter.

Because some people are more sensitive to this refreshing herb than others, I like to recommend that you avoid it entirely, until you know for certain that mint isn’t an antidote for you.

But let’s get a little more specific with one recent question: “If I’m taking a dose once every 2 weeks indefinitely, do I need to stay away from mint the entire time?”

 

My answer is both “Yes” and “No”.

If mint is an antidote for you then yes, avoid it; however, some people have no problem with it. If you're seeing improvement as a result of the remedy/ies, then try mint and see if it has an effect.  If not, then go ahead and use mint.

Sometimes, just a little mint will not antidote, while a larger amount will.

If you’re trying to avoid mint and can’t find mint-free toothpaste, how ‘bout trying my homemade, mint-free tooth powder?  I bet you won’t even miss the old stuff.


Cavities? Try Homeopathy

Cell salts are integrated into the building my sons used to construct. As they grew older, I'd leave it up to them to take their 4 pills while playing with Lego's.

I'd like to thank The Healthy Home Economist for first sharing the following post with her readers. Now, I'm glad to share it with you, too.

 

The quality of the teeth represents the status of the bone structure of the body.

Therefore, it’s important that the teeth be sound. If they are, the bones will be reliable, too.

Sometimes, parents are concerned when their child’s teeth show frequent and large cavities in spite of a  nutrient dense diet.

This is rare when children are raised on raw milk, saturated fats and bone stocks but it indeed can occur in children who have certain predisposing DNA.

In this case,  working with a credentialed homeopath would be in order; however, if the caries are not of a particularly worrisome level, much can be done to remedy the problem at home.

It generally takes a good amount of time, however Calc phos 6x and Calc fluor 12x taken thrice daily, for many months has been shown to strengthen and aid in the growth and integrity children's teeth.

These two remedies make a great combination since Calc phos “is concerned with formation of bone and teeth and [is] an important remedy for children”; Calc fluor “is found in the surface of bones and in the enamel of teeth.”[1]

But that’s not all.  They’re specific for growth in general and it’s not uncommon to see children who have problems with their teeth display other growth issues.

Lovely!  That means that with these two remedies, we can address the entire child.

Isn’t that what homeopathy is about?

When my children were growing, I had them take Calc phos and Calc fluor on a daily basis in spite of the fact that they were raised on raw milk bone stocks and saturated fats.

During these years, it appeared that two of our boys’ teeth were growing in a crooked fashion.  In fact, I’m sure that if we hadn’t chosen our holistic dentist, we  might have been pressured to consider dental  braces.

Instead, I believed that as they grew, their teeth would grow and straighten accordingly.

That’s exactly what happened.

A simple technique for administering these remedies is to add them directly to jugs of milk.  In one gallon of milk, add 10 or so  pills of each, stir and the job is complete. As your children ingest their milk throughout the day, they’ll get these two remedies in each sip.

Now, our boys have fine, strong and straight teeth without the “aid” of orthodontia.

We saved ourselves not only thousands of dollars, but more importantly,  allowed their bodies to complete the work of bone alignment on their own….with a little help from nutrient dense foods and our beloved homeopathic remedies.
