Cure or Temporary Relief: Which Would You Want?

Dear Friends,

Taking drugs to relieve our symptoms seems so easy. But in the long run, what are these drugs doing to our bodies? Don’t get me started on all the side effects. Sometimes the cure is worse than the pathology! But even without side effects, drugs only mask our problems. We need to learn to trust our body to heal itself. That’s the only way to true health.



Is Your Pain Reliever Lying to You?

The last time you had a headache, you took an analgesic. Then the pain went away. The pain wasn't present so that means it was cured, right? Wrong.

When we use a medication, it only temporarily relieves the pathology, which means the pathology will return. Always. It has to return until it is resolved. A temporary fix is not a cure; it is a postponement. Over a period of time, the pathology will likely become more intense and slightly longer lasting. This is the way with the innate wisdom of the body. It will keep telling us to stop ingesting suppressive drugs until we pay attention.

The drugs will continue lying to us by leading us to believe that they are relieving us of a problem, when they are the problem. In fact, it is easy to assume that something is wrong with us. Our body is defective. The pills play on that assumption. The “benevolent” drug will put us in order in spite of ourselves. Indeed, the truth of the matter is that the more drugs we take, the greater the pathology and suffering.

Marsha went to a homeopath with the chief complaint of headaches that occurred daily. The pain was severe; in fact, it was a 10 on a scale of 10. The headaches lasted from approximately 9 am until 9 pm. After trying many analgesics over two years, she decided the side effects of blood in her stool, sleeplessness and now chronic gastrointestinal upsets were not worth the lesser value she gained by taking the drugs. She had been suffering from these headaches for nearly two years. The first one appeared just before her period, and so she took Midol. Each month the pain increased and lasted longer.

The homeopath explained that the homeopathic remedy was going to reverse the process. It was going to stimulate her body to bring it back to its best economy. It would do this by making her headache a little less painful and not as long lasting and by reducing the episodes.

After taking Sepia 200 every few days for six weeks, Marsha returned to report that the headaches were still occurring, but that the pain was now a 4. This was a 60% improvement in intensity! She also mentioned that she suffered for a shorter period of time now, perhaps only until about noon. This represented an improvement of 75% in terms of longevity! And instead of the pain coming before her menses, it seemed to be unassociated with hormones. This represented a decrease in space between episodes of approximately 60%!

Marsha's body was on a journey towards health, to the time when she was in better health, before the frequent use of the drugs. “But we're not finished yet,” reported the homeopath. “We continue until we get to the point where you were when that first landmark pain began. When we get to the way the first headache presented, we give you the remedy that should have been administered at that time.” The next remedy was Picric Acid 200 and Belladonna 3 taken together. This time she took it only at the time of each headache.

The plan the homeopath had mapped out is exactly what happened to Marsha. Over a period of three months, the head pain dissolved and so did all the other side effects that were caused by the analgesics. Now, after only a few remedies, she is free of her headaches. Oh, and her emotional addiction to meds, too.

Homeopathy is rational. It adheres to principles and laws that are logical and reproducible. Homeopathy is the solution to headaches, drug addictions and human suffering. If you suffer from problems such as these, find a certified, classical homeopath and return to a time when you were headache free.

New Course!

Did you know that these common chronic ailments may be linked to problems of the gut: ADHD, delayed milestones, moodiness, food intolerances, allergies, sugar addictions, chronic fatigue, constipation and diarrhea and chronic bloating? More importantly, did you know that homeopathy is the key to uprooting these and many other chronic ailments?

Joette is about to teach a new course called Good Gut, Bad Gut: A Homeopathic Strategy to Uproot Seemingly Unrelated Illness in Body and Mind. This course will consist of four 2.5-hour interactive webinars where Joette will share what she has learned from personal experience, nearly two decades of devotion to Weston A. Price Foundation methods, six weeks working side by side with the doctors at the world-famous Banerji Clinic in Calcutta, India, and 20 years of clinical experience related to gut, diet and psychology. She will also share your real-life cases as learning tools.

Mint and Remedies

People frequently ask me how and when to avoid mint while they’re using homeopathic remedies. Although other substances can also antidote remedies, mint seems to be the most troublesome, especially if you use commercial toothpaste or mouth washes.

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

If you are taking a remedy long term, for example, a dose once every 2 weeks indefinitely, you may need to avoid mint the entire time.

However, some people have no problem with mint. If you see improvement as a result of the remedy/ies, then try mint and see if it has an effect. If no effect is seen, 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, why not try this homemade, mint-free tooth powder? I bet you won’t even miss the old stuff.

Mint-Free Toothpaste

Mix together:

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/4 cup French Clay (found at most health food stores)
  • 1 drop essential oil (I like to use cinnamon oil but other great choices are clove, anise, fennel, myrrh, rosemary, lemon or even orange oil.)

To use, just wet your toothbrush and dip it into the powder. In essence, you are cleaning the brush; the mechanics of the brush clean your teeth. Because baking soda is an abrasive, using too much can be detrimental and remove the enamel from your teeth. A little goes a long way!

Quote From Joette

" Self-assurance and poise come from not having fear. Fearlessness, or at least strength of resolve, comes from doing your homework. Then we don’t have to do just anything in order to feel we’ve done SOMETHING.
It all fits together.
