Every aspiring homeopath (caring mom) must learn how to recognize each remedy's uses and characteristics, and how to differentiate between remedies.  

materia medica (Latin for “materials of medicine”) is the tool that helps one do this, and is, therefore, the most necessary book in your homeopathic library.  

This is my materia medica.

I’m a physical therapist and last year had a trigger finger in my thumb. That means I couldn’t bend the left interphalangeal joint without intense pain. Even if I could withstand the pain, I couldn’t use my thumb and forefinger to grasp because it seized up. Needless to say, it interfered with my ability to work. It was like this for over 3 months.

Out of desperation, I went to the doctor and let him give me a cortisone injection. OH MY GOSH, was that painful! He told me I would get full relief within 24 hours. Three weeks later, no change in the pain and flexibility…not even a small amount.

I was angry with myself for letting him talk me into such a procedure. I guess I did it because I didn’t believe homeopathy could help with such a thing. Boy, was I wrong!

After meeting with Joette, I learned that Rhus tox is commonly used for trigger finger and so I took it right away. Within 2 days, I could move my thumb and over a period of about 10 days, the pain left completely….never to return!

While I was suffering from this, I couldn’t work and was just about useless in cooking and most other tasks. Now I’m in full swing and have had no residual problems in the last year.

Wait! There’s more. I’ve suffered from hypothyroidism for years. My doctor told me I should be on Synthroid. No thanks, I said. Have you read the side effects?

Once again, Joette and homeopathy came to my aid. I started Thyroidinum and within about 2 months, my energy returned, my weight began to drop and I was no longer cold all the time.

What I’ve learned from my beloved Joette is worth millions.


I am a homeopath with a world wide practice working with families and individuals via Skype. I'm also a teacher and most importantly, a mom who raised my now-adult children depending on homeopathy over the last 31 years. I lived decades of my life with food intolerances, allergies, and chemical sensitivities until I was cured with homeopathy, so I understand pain, anxiety s and suffering. You may feel that your issues are more severe or different than anyone else’s, but I have seen it all in my practice and in my work in India. My opinion is that nothing has come close to the reproducible, safe and effective results that my clients, students and I have achieved with homeopathy.

Call today and learn how homeopathy might just be the missing piece in your health strategy.

Joette is not a physician and the relationship between Joette and her clients is not of prescriber and patient, but as educator and client. It is fully the client's choice whether or not to take advantage of the information Joette presents. Homeopathy doesn't "treat" an illness; it addresses the entire person as a matter of wholeness that is an educational process, not a medical one. In order to be treated or diagnosed, Joette believes that the advice of a holistic physician is in order.
