There are many homeopaths who don’t offer a glimpse into their lifestyles and choices.

 

I’m not one of them.

 

Instead, I share my beliefs and values on mothering, family traditions, living a natural lifestyle, and cooking nutrient-dense meals in whatever I write, in whatever I say, and in whatever I teach. This includes prayer. I do this because I genuinely believe that’s what it takes to find genuine health.

 

Daily, I meet with clients and students from all over the globe who have made poor choices, usually because the right choice was inconvenient.  Today their health is suffering from those decisions.  More effort is required to seek out health-promoting choices, but the reward is great.

 

This certainly doesn’t apply to everyone, but more and more, I see the ramifications of these poor choices especially in our Western society.  Get our morality straight and health often follows.  Tinker with Mother Nature and the mores and principles of our beliefs, and we will suffer.

 

That, in my estimation, is  why Judeo-Christian traditions hold so much wisdom when it comes to genuine health.

 

I believe the world is hungry for time-honored values.  And to me, silence in regards to this message is irresponsible.

 

I estimate that with this type of message, I will turn some readers off and lose them.  Others will employ these ideas and pass them on.  And  some will simply read and do nothing.

 

For me, it’s a chance worth taking.  I will do whatever I can to spread the truth of how to achieve genuine health.

I can’t imagine what my life would be like without homeopathy. It has changed my life, and the lives of my entire family, too.

Years ago, I thought antibiotics were appropriate simply because my doctor said they were. I fell for immunotherapy and my allergies were driven to a deeper, more entrenched state. I firmly believed the falsehood that drugs, meds and medicaments were irrefutably valuable.

To think of the poor choices I made all of those years irritates me to this day.  But, instead of getting caught up with my mistakes, let me share with you how I overcame them.

(By the way, if you’ve made similar blunders, you can overcome them, too!)

Instead of using drugs, my foremost medicines have long been homeopathy and nutrient dense foods. Thanks to this bold resolution, my family and I took a colossal leap into robust health.  And we’ve never turned back.

I never doled out a single drug to my family; not a Tylenol capsule, not a spoonful of Benadryl and no antibiotics.

Zip, nada, zilch!

Does this sound impossible?

Well, it would be impossible without the correct tools, knowledge and motivation.

That’s why I have organized a FREE webinar called The 5 Most Common Mistakes Parents Make in Their Children’s Health.

Over the years, my clients and students have shared with me their mistakes and I’ve noted what the most popular errors have been. Many of them are made repeatedly by both parents and grandparents alike.

Some of these 5 blunders are grave, but others are minor.

Recognizing our mistakes is one thing – correcting them is another.

How did I correct my blunders?  By using intelligent methods coupled with pig-headed determination.

And that’s what you can use, too. A knowledgeable mom can aptly deal with much of what faces her family’s health. There are methods you can employ today that will help you safely uproot illness instead of just covering it up with drugs. It takes perseverance and persistence, but really, what is more important than the health of our families?

I know you have the motivation already, so let me provide you with the correct tools and knowledge that took me decades to “get”.

I’ll get you started with my Free Webinar, The 5 Most Common Mistakes Parents Make in Their Children’s Health this Tuesday, April 10 at 8PM EST.

Let’s right the wrongs together.

I hope to see you there!

Note:  If you can’t make my webinar, sign up anyway and you’ll receive instructions on how to hear/view the webinar later.

It’s that hay fever time of year again.  Not only does springtime bring us bright, cheerful blossoms, but it also bestows upon many of us a not-so-cheerful-time: allergy season.

Fortunately, some of the great minds of homeopathy have taken up the subject of hay fever.  They maintain that it’s the result of poorly treated fevers during childhood and youth.

In other words, hay fever can be directly attributed to the countless doctors, who unknowingly handed out detrimental drugs like aspirin, Tylenol and antibiotics to address fevers in children.  This is what many believe cause hay fever later in life and this is reason enough not to use drugs of commerce when addressing fevers.

Since we can’t return to the past, we must work with what we have.  Luckily for us, we have homeopathy!

Homeopathy is unique because it doesn’t treat the illness, but treats the entire person.  This means that five people with hay fever could receive five different remedies, depending upon each person’s symptoms or how each illness presents.

A homeopathic remedy is chosen based on the symptoms at hand and generally, it’s given hourly, if the symptoms are severe.  If the hay fever is not presenting yet, but is forthcoming, then give the remedy three times per day, every day, during the weeks leading up to it.

The premier remedy to not only prevent the threatening attack, but to subdue one that has already begun, is Mag Phos 6x.

Mag phos is a remedy for spasms, so it will relax the spasms of sneezing fits.  It is best administered in a cup of hot water and then sipped, one sip at a time, every 30 seconds or so.   I like to call this remedy Mug phos because it works so well in a mug of hot water; it is often the only remedy needed to abort a sneezing episode.

If a person craves salt and the sunlight worsens both the sneezing and runny eyes, and if the nose and other associated areas itch, then Nat mur 6x is indicated. This can be taken 3 times per day for maintenance and up to 10 times per day when the suffering is more extreme.

Silica 6x is a remedy for those who have itching deep in the nose, in the back of the throat and deep in the ears.  There is often violent sneezing with tingling in the nose, especially in the morning.  The mucus can be of a burning nature, accompanied by hoarseness and dryness in the throat.  This is relieved by a cool drink of water. All of these symptoms, especially a tickling in the throat, are made worse by lying down at night.  Use this in the same fashion as Nat mur.

Then, there are combination remedies such as Sabadil, made by Boiron. It’s made up of several remedies, all of which are known to address hay fever.   Many of my clients have found relief from it.

We can’t assume that the above remedies will thoroughly eliminate hay fever forever, but they can certainly make enduring allergy season a bit easier.

It’s always worth a try to do this alone, but if complete success is the goal, and there’s an interest in deepening the curative action of homeopathy, contact your homeopath. This way, you’ll get to the bottom of it and prevent it from becoming an annual affair….often forever!

I’ve just returned to Buffalo after having spent a fantastic weekend in Chico, California. There was a great turnout for my two-day, intensive seminar on homeopathy and I couldn’t have asked for a more lively, warm and welcoming bunch! There were mothers, grandmothers, chiropractors, nurses, farmers, a truck driver, teachers, and herbalists.  The vendors were interesting and  informed, and the food was out-of-this-world delicious.

My mouth is watering just remembering the beautiful cheesecake and acorn squash soup. All the foods were locally sourced, organically grown and true to Weston A. Price principles. I’d like to send a heartfelt “Thank You!” to Carol Chaffin Albrecht, the chapter leader for the WAPF chapter of Chico-Butte and all the wonderful folks who made my family and me feel welcom and appreciated.

And because I loved  the meal so much, I thought I’d share a recipe I’ve found for the delicious cream of acorn squash soup.  I can’t say that it will be as good as what the talented volunteers prepared, but it’s likely to come in a close second!

You’ll need:

• 2 acorn squashes, halved and seeded •   1 medium onion,  cut in half •  6 tbsp. unsalted butter • 1/4 c. flour (which can be coconut flour or gluten free,  if necessary)  • 5 c. bone stock • 1 c.raw heavy cream • Celtic Sea Salt to taste • Freshly ground black pepper to taste •

Here’s what you do:   On a buttered surface of a Dutch oven , bake the squash and onion until soft. Scoop out the meat from the squash and discard the skin. Put the squash back in  the Dutch oven, add  the stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. Add raw cream, and salt and pepper to taste. Continue stirring until just heated through.

Man, oh man…….Chico I’m coming back!

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.

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.
