Generous Gelsemium

Dear Friend,

With Thanksgiving just around the corner and mid-term exams looming on the horizon, the last thing we want is a family member who is wiped out from influenza and confined to bed (or the sofa!). One of my favorite remedies for extreme exhaustion from flu is Gelsemium, which can help get your loved-one back on his or her feet.



I’ve fallen hard for homeopathy. It’s because it feels like generosity to me. To empower mothers and others (hence the family) is the greatest gift one can give. My personal goal is to get every medicine cabinet in America stocked with at least one homeopathic remedy.

If you’d asked me last spring which is the most important remedy to own, I’d have said Dulcamara because it is wonderful for ills that come on from alternating hot and cold weather. If you’d queried in the summer months, I might have advised Arnica montana for all the spills and scrapes. But because it’s flu season, I propose one of the most efficacious homeopathics for your kit: Gelsemium. Oh, Gelsemium, a reward for an inquiring mind. Discover this remedy, and you’ll amaze yourself and your friends. But use it only when there’s profound fatigue associated with influenza. Employ it when the sufferer is so exhausted that any movement is an effort. And use it the moment it comes on. In a 30x or 30c potency, it can be administered every 3-4 hours for a day or so or until resolution. Resolution? Yes, if you’ve chosen wisely, the flu will vanish. If the symptoms return, repeat the dosage again. (A dose is always 4-6 pills.) Don’t use it for more than two consecutive days. If it’s not working, it’s because you’ve selected incorrectly. Thus homeopathy always facilitates…as long as the remedy is well selected.

Some Remarkable History

At the turn of the last century, approx 30-40% of the physicians in the United States were homeopaths. While the allopaths (or conventional) doctors stood puzzled by the bedside of their dying patients, totaling worldwide upwards of 39 million, their homeopathic counterparts were administering safe and gentle homeopathic medicines and complete bed rest. Their results were astonishing. They treated their patients in large homeopathic hospitals where homeopathy was used exclusively by MDs, in homes, factories and the countryside. In the aftermath of the 1918-1919 Flu, the allopaths were still scratching their heads. Meanwhile, the homeopaths assembled with statistics for their annual conference. In 1921, at the 77th convention of the American Institute of Homeopathy in Washington, D.C., Dr. T.A. McCann from Dayton, Ohio, was one of the presenters. He informed his distinguished homeopathic colleagues that he had collected hard data on 24,000 cases of the flu that were treated by conventional means. In these cases, a 28.2% mortality rate was reported. Meanwhile, homeopathic physicians had 26,000 cases of the flu treated solely in the homeopathic manner and had a mortality rate of only 1.05%! Another report was offered by Dr. Frank Wieland of Chicago, who confirmed that in the plant where he was employed, of 8,000 workers…

“We had only one death. We used no aspirin and no vaccines. Gelsemium was practically the only remedy used.” The reports of many doctors, from New York to San Francisco, were gathered and presented commanding evidence that still holds today. Homeopathy is not capricious with methods that are here today, gone tomorrow. Instead, homeopathy’s ability to thwart even the deadliest of flus in the history of mankind upheld in a most impressive manner. And with Gelsemium at the helm.

A successful conference in Santa Clara:

Joette’s talk at the Weston A. Price Foundation Conference in Santa Clara, CA, was very enthusiastically received by a standing-room-only crowd of more than 500 attendees. Our booth was frequently three people deep, with loads of questions on how to get started. We’ve come away with new friends, lots of names submitted for the Hyland’s Household Kit raffle and orders for CDs and kits to be shipped all over the world. It was a blast!

Clearly we touched a subject that has an ardent following.

Quote From Joette

“Let me urge you…no, entreat you, to read, read, read. And when you finish studying and using these pages, read and study more. For the power in homeopathy is that your health is in your hands, not big pharma, not the archaic and self-serving medical associations, not the government, but in your capable and trustworthy hands.”


Quote From Joette

Wouldn’t it be lovely if we could go back to having fresh, local raw milk delivered right to our door? We have many technological innovations today that make our lives better and more convenient in many ways, but all the same, I wonder if this woman realized how lucky she was!
