Q:  I have a question and want to call the office. What kinds of questions do Joette’s office staff answer?

A:  Please read or search this entire FAQ page first. The answer may be here! ? My office staff cannot answer any homeopathic-related questions. This includes questions about dosing, potencies, X vs. C, vaccines, or other homeopaths. Additionally, they cannot answer any technical questions relating to computer/software problems or issues with Facebook. As I’m sure you understand, my office is extremely busy helping clients, students, and individuals with health problems, and we are simply not equipped to answer all of the questions we receive on a daily basis.


Technical Issues:

The office does not answer any technical questions relating to computer/software problems or Facebook issues.


Q:  I am unable to get a video to load or play/I am unable to get my order to go through. How should I proceed?

A:  First, try using a different browser (such as Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Internet Exlporer), restarting your device/computer, using a different device, or asking your Study Group Leader for help. If you continue to have trouble, please email contact@practicalhomeopathy.com.


Q:  I emailed the office and haven’t gotten a response. When will I hear back from you?

A:  My office usually responds within 24-48 hours (except on weekends). If you don’t see a response in your inbox, please make sure to check all available inboxes (such as spam). For instance, Gmail recently started filtering emails into several different inboxes including Primary, Social, Promotions, Updates, and Forums. Other email providers may have a similar setup. Make sure to check all of these folders for an email from either @joettecalabrese.com or @practicalhomeopathy.com addresses. You can change how emails are filtered in your email settings. Also, make sure to add these addresses to your trusted, primary emails.


Frequently Asked Questions

Gateway to Homeopathy

Study Group FAQ:


Q:  How can I find other Study Group members to start a group?

A:  I am so happy to have created an incredibly intuitive and resourceful Curriculum for you! Finding the group is the fun part. I have set up a Facebook page. Please go there, request to join, and look at the posts of Group Leaders presently starting groups: https://www.facebook.com/groups/144456329307655/


Q:  I don’t have a group yet. Should I wait until I have a group to order my Study Guide?

A:  No. It is best to order your Study Guide first so you already have it on hand before you find a group to join. Some groups want to start right away, and there is no guarantee that you will receive your book in time if you wait to place your order (especially during these current times).


Q:  Does each individual group member pay $47.00 USD?

A:  Yes. Each Study Group member needs their own Curriculum. This helps ensure that each participant is appropriately registered for the Study Group Curriculum and is given access to the Student Resource Page. Teaching many from one booklet would violate copyright law.


Q:  I read this entire page. I have another question not listed here. Where do I go?

A:  Please contact your Study Group Leader. She/he is in charge of answering questions for your group. If the Group Leader does not know the answer, try to brainstorm a solution within your group. If the question still remains, take notes and save it for your Live Q&A with me.


Q:  I know that in order for Joette to appear live to my group, I need a minimum number of students who are present. Now, I would like to schedule Joette to appear LIVE for a Q&A session. How do I do that?

A:  Although the Study Guide references a minimum number of participants to have me join your group for a live Q&A during week 8, this is no longer the case. I have come up with the perfect solution: I now combine smaller groups for the Q&A sessions. *Please call my office well in advance to schedule your Live Q&A at 561-537-5900.


Q:  Will Joette take a personal case during our group’s Q&A session?

A:  No. I cannot answer any questions relating to someone’s individual health circumstances during this special time together. Please refer to Week 8 of the Study Group Curriculum for more details on what kinds of questions I am able to answer while speaking to you live.


Q:  I see that Joette appears as a live guest speaker to Study Group students for a Q&A session (this costs a fee). I also see that she offers free, pre-recorded Q&A sessions. I would like to view the pre-recorded videos instead of paying for the live sessions. How do I gain access to that?

A:  Pre-recorded Q&A’s are located on the Study Group Curriculum Resource Page.


Q:  Can I be a group of one? Can I use the Curriculum as a solo student?

A:  I highly encourage group study, although it is not mandatory. Sharing and discussion with others deepens the learning experience and understanding, though studying as one is alright, too. However, the main goal of the Curriculum is to foster a sense of community with other likeminded folks to help broaden the reach of homeopathy as a safe and effective alternative medical paradigm.


Q:  How do I gain access to the Study Group Participant Resource Page?

A:  The purchase of the Study Group Curriculum automatically grants you access to the Resource Page. Upon ordering, you will be taken to a page where you will set up access to the private Participant Resource Page. Please do not navigate away from that page until you have created your username/password.


Q:  May I pay the $47.00 in several installments (as this is offered with some of Joette’s other courses)?

A:  This Study Group Curriculum is not the same as a standard course I otherwise offer. I purposely subsidized the cost of the Curriculum to make it very affordable. At this time, I am unable to increase our costs by adding a payment plan.


Q:  May I call and pay over the phone, as my internet connection is unreliable?

A:  Unfortunately, you must place your order online so you may register yourself for access to the Resource Page. I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.


Q:  Does each person place an order individually?

A:  Yes. Everyone must order individually to receive their own mailing of the Curriculum and registration credentials.


Q:  Where do I send my Group Members to sign up for my group?

A:  Direct them to the page where they purchase the Study Group Curriculum:  https://membership.joettecalabrese.com/gateway-one/?purchase


Q:  Can I see a sample of the Study Group Curriculum?

A:  Yes, it is available here:


Q:  I’ve taken one (or several) of Joette's courses, like Good Gut, Bad Gut, for example. I also have Joette’s educational material that comes with the Top 100 remedy homeopathic kit. How much overlap do you think there is between these things and the information taught in the Study Group?

A:  There is indeed some overlap from this Curriculum and the other products I offer. But even if you have taken courses from me before, this Study Group offers something the other courses do not: Community! The purpose of this Curriculum is to allow likeminded individuals to support each other in their homeopathic journeys. That’s why I say (and have witnessed!) that both newbies & oldies to homeopathy will benefit from this!


Q:  How much time per week should we expect to spend on the Study Group?

A:  There is about an hour of homework for each Study Group class (most of these assignments are simply listening to podcasts). Your group is in control of how long each Study Group meeting lasts, as well as any other time commitments.


Q:  Is the Curriculum mailed as one package with material to photocopy for each person, or are there a certain number of copies included?

A:  Each member will receive their own copy, as the Curriculum is printed on security paper, disabling the ability to photocopy the material.


Q:  What are the videos that come with the curriculum about?

A:  The videos on the Resource Page are about homeopathy. They are correlated with the Curriculum and answer questions like: What are remedies made out of? How often should I dose a remedy in an acute illness? Etc.


Q:  How does the Group Leader coordinate watching the videos when she has online students?

A:  Sorry, but I cannot answer questions relating to technical-support. Be creative and ask computer savvy friends for ideas! Some students have tried screen sharing or having everyone watch the video on their own computer (muting themselves to watch), then rejoining the online discussion.


Q:  How can I get my Completion Certificate for access to OHM?

A:  Please ask your Group Leader to use the form provided on the Study Group Resource Page to submit your name to my office. If you qualify, my staff will send you an email with the Certificate, granting you access to the pharmacy.


Q:  Do I have to take the Gateway I before I can take Gateway II?

A:  Yes.


Q:  Where do I go to order the Gateway II Curriculum?

A:  You must first log in to your Gateway I Resource Page. In the upper right-hand corner, you will find a link named Gateway II Info. Simply click, then follow the instructions from there.


Q:  Can I share my Study Guide with my friend?

A:  Each Study Group member needs their own Curriculum. Teaching many from one booklet would violate copyright law; however, a parent may share with a minor child living in the home.


Q:  Can I order all of my participants' Curriculums to be shipped together to save on shipping costs?

A:  Unfortunately, our fulfillment center is not equipped to accommodate this request, and each participant needs to register themselves for access to the Resource Page.


Q:  My username and/or password for the Resource Page is not working?

A:  Your username and password may not be the same for your course or Study Group as it is for the Free Community. Each membership area of my website is different. If you registered but do not recall your password, please use the “Lost your password?” feature right below the fields requesting your username/password. If you do not recall registering for the Gateway and try resetting your password but receive the message “Error: There is no account with that username or email address”, please email us at contact@practicalhomeopathy.com


Q:  Everyone else in my group received their Study Group Completion Certificates except me. Why is that?

A:  First, make sure your Group Leader submitted your name to our office. If not, please ask her/him to do so. If your name has been submitted, your email was most likely filtered by your email provider into another folder. Try doing a search of your email using the keywords “Gateway I Certificate of Completion” and check all of your inboxes, including spam.


Q:  Do I get a discount on kits if I complete a Study Group or a course?

A:  No.


Group Purchase FAQ:  

Be sure to read Week 7 in your Study Guide for information on group purchases.


Q:  Do I need 10 people ordering or 10 courses ordered?

A:  You must have 10 people ordering. All ten must have completed at least 7 of the 8 weeks of the Study Group Curriculum.


Q:  What if one person orders more than one course? Does that count?

A:  No. Ten eligible people must be on the group order form. Once you have 10, people may order more than one course if they choose.


Q:  I’m organizing a group purchase. Can I order more than one course?

A:  Yes, though only one course is eligible for the 40% discount.


Q:  How soon will we get access to our courses after we submit the group purchase order?

A:  It takes a few days to process the order and create the links. I ask that you allow at least 7-10 business days. The links for each course purchased are sent to the Group Leader to distribute to the other members of the group.


Q:  Can everyone pay directly or does the group purchase organizer have to collect the money?

A:  The person organizing the group purchase must collect all funds prior to submission to my office. This is why I give a bigger discount to the organizer as a thank you for all of their work.


Q:  What if I don’t want to give the group purchase organizer my credit card information?

A:  You may pay the organizer by check, certified check, money order, or electronic transfer.


Q:  Can anyone take part in a group purchase or do you have to complete a Gateway I Study Group?

A:  You must complete the Gateway to Homeopathy I Study Group Curriculum to take part in a group purchase.


Q:  Will I have immediate access to the Students of Joette Facebook Group? To OHM?  

A:  No. My policy is a minimum of 6 weeks of course study prior to acceptance to the Facebook group and access to OHM. Once you have completed six weeks of study, you may complete the “Conclude the Course” form on the course Resource Page for your Certificate and access to OHM. Once you receive your Certificate, you will then receive a link to request to join the Students of Joette Facebook Group. There are no exceptions.



Q:  Why can’t I order more than one item at a time?

A:  We do not have a shopping cart option at this time.


Q:  I ordered the Cell Salts CD or download a while ago. How do I order the transcript?

A:  Please call my office at 561-537-5900 or email contact@practicalhomeopathy.com to place your order.


Q:  Can I order the Survivalist Kit if I haven’t taken the Survivalist Course?

A:  No. Survivalist kits can only be purchased by students of the Survivalist course.


Q:  I did not receive tracking information for my order. Where can I get that information?

A:  You should have received an email from Stamps.com with tracking information for your order. Search your email, including your spam folder, for the subject line,“Joette Calabrese has sent you a package.”


Q:   I am tracking my order but it seems to have stalled with no updates for several days. What do I do?

A:  Please continue to track your package using the information provided. You may also reach out to your local post office for assistance locating your package. I have access to the same tracking information that you do and am unable to provide additional information on your package’s status.


Q:  My order was damaged in transit. What should I do?

A:  Please send an email to contact@practicalhomeopathy to let me know what item was damaged, along with photos of the damage. My office will email you with options or instructions for returning your item for a replacement.
