My 18 year old is working in the landscaping business this summer.  He’s in the hot sun all day, and so I worry.  I’m less concerned though, than I might be because I have homeopathy.   And so does he.  Every morning he makes a homeopathic electrolyte concoction  that he carries with him on the job.  Water just isn’t enough in temperatures in the 90’s.


Here’s what Peter drinks all day.  I recommend it to anyone who is exposed to high heat and or excessive sweating.


Peter’s Homeopathic Electrolyte Concoction


  • 16 pills of Bioplasma (from your health food store)
  • 16 pills of Nat sulph 6x (from your health food store)
  • ¼ cup acidophilus bifidus yogurt or kefir
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon or lime juice
  • maple syrup or raw honey, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Celtic salt
  • ½ cup coconut milk (optional)


Fill the remainder of the gallon with ice water and be sure to shake before each drink. Enjoy!

Homeopathy has an impressive and extensively documented record with voluminous studies showing its efficacy. It’s been widely used in hundreds of hospitals and clinics for over 200 years. So, many count on its ability to protect from and treat even the most virulent pathologies.

In light of what’s taking place in Japan, I compiled the following information from homeopaths around the world: Israel, India, England, the Netherlands and Canada.

These remedies have been used before, during and after an atomic explosion. Some of these remedies are more difficult to find while some are common to most household kits. All of them are capable, so only one or two are needed.

Pass on this information as it could protect many.

1) Cadmium sulph 30 or Potassium iodide 30 taken once before and once after an atomic explosion. These are generally used before symptoms appear, but can be used after as well.

2) Cobaltum 30 has been known to remove side effects of radiation by taking it four times in one day for 2-3 days. Then an assessment is taken to determine if more is needed and how often. Generally, it’s used from that time forward four times in one day every two weeks for 2-3 months. In the hands of a skilled homeopath, this remedy can be used in a 200 potency.

3) Radium bromatum 30 has been used when skin eruptions or arthritis appear. Generally, twice daily if mild and up to 5 times per day if more severe. It has been used for as long as many weeks, but as always, with a watchful eye of a skilled homeopath.

4) Arsenicum album 30 in repeated doses every few minutes and ½ hour after, for approximately 1-2 days….then as needed depending on symptoms.

5) Phosphorus 30 and 200 and 1M one after the other in the same fashion as Arsenicum. Together these have a history of being a very useful 1st aid.
6) Calc fluor 12 and Nat mur 6 thrice daily for months after exposure. More frequently, if necessary. regardless of which other remedies are chosen from above, these two remedies have a way of helping the body eliminate toxins in tandem with the other remedies.

Until and in Addition to Homeopathic Remedies
Here’s a tip from my friend and colleague, Dr. Kaayla Daniel. She suggests that as soon as radioactive exposure is apparent, pour one cup each of baking soda and salt into a hot bath. Submerge and soak for as long as the water stays warm. Don’t add more warm or hot water to the bath unless all of the water is drained and then begin again if the exposure is particularly high.

If you eat or drink too much… and feel unwell from it….here are my top 3 picks for quick comfort:

• Nux vomica 30 from your homeopathy kit, every 2 hours up to 4 doses


• Nat phos 6x from your cell salt kit, every 30 minutes or so until improved

• If you don’t own a homeopathy kit, then 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda plus lemon juice of ¼ lemon in 4 ounces of cool water. Drink it down as the mixture fizzes.


May you have a happy, restful and meaningful Thanksgiving, Joette

After the extravagances of past decades, we’re finally seeing a shift in thinking with regard to the use of medications. Yes, I know, every other commercial is a company pushing their newest drug.  Yet, in spite of this, there is a ground swelling of those who remember life without drugs and recall a healthier world.

Take antacids for example.   If we followed the TV ads we see, the magazine and newspaper ads we read; we’d be ingesting these nostrums daily.   If indeed they must be ingested day after day, isn’t that cause for questioning the value of these products in the first place?

I say, it is time we consider another method.   One of intelligence, efficacy, of time-tested value and purity….that is, of course, homeopathy.   Why?   Because it doesn’t cover up the problem, it squarely addresses it.

Homeopathy is founded on a firm rock.   Its laws and principles are irrefutable, being proven in tests and clinically in hospitals, clinics, nurseries and veterinary offices throughout the world for over 200 years.

So, does homeopathy offer an antacid for the relief of over eating and drinking?   You bet!   Let’s examine some of homeopathy’s two best known remedies and how to use them for a little too much at Thanksgiving or an excess of holiday cheer.

Natrum phos 6x is homeopathy’s king of antacids.   Tuck a small bottle of it in your purse, diaper bag or glove compartment.   Then, any time indigestion hits, toss 3-4 pills directly in the mouth.   If no relief is afforded within 15 minutes or so, continue taking in the same manner.   In most cases, the indigestion will be resolved within short order. Curiously and as a welcome old friend, the next episode of indigestion will often not be as severe, not last as long and will be fended off for a longer period of time.   Further, the cost of these little pills is under $20 and they pack neither side effects nor additives.

Nux vomica 30x is also a remedy one can count on to be efficient and powerful, yet gentle for the relief of reflux.   It is used when we have over done a good thing…too much dip, too many drinks on New Year’s Day, too much candy on Halloween.   It will antidote the symptoms of heartburn, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and even irritability, as long as this cluster of symptoms matches.

Even a hang-over is a thing of the past with the correct use of Nux vomica.   Taken every few hours, it will offer not only relief, but do so without side effects.   Often the person suffering from indigestion who will benefit from Nux vomica 30x also complains of wakefulness, usually around 3:00 a.m., with the thoughts of the day dancing around in his or her head.

The materia medica of homeopathy has thousands of remedies that have been used since the late 1700’s.   They are as consistent today as they were when the homeopathic doctors used them then.   Homeopathy is not capricious; it doesn’t declare that the latest drug is “the” solution only to have it pushed to the back of the pharmacy shelf within months or years in lieu of the newest hottest catholicon.   Better yet; no homeopathic remedy has ever been withdrawn from the market due to subsequent illness that it has caused.

So when you’ve eaten too much turkey or had more than your share of wine consider homeopathy.   It may not only relieve your heartburn, but also the irritability that comes from having to withstand the parade of irksome drug commercials during the football game!

I have written more in my latest Ezine.    Take a look here is the link to my web site where you will find my latest Ezine as well an archive of past ones.  Enjoy!  http://homeopathyworks.net/newsletters.cfm

It is powerful, usually right on the mark and if we deny its existence, we’re always sorry later. Yes, mother’s intuition is real.

Today, many have lost the confidence our strong ancestors had built into them. Drugs are handed out like candy. In fact, if refused, we are often met with angry words and condescension. There is a better way that many mothers instinctively understand; a way that is safer, non invasive and yields stronger and often better adjusted children. It is the way of nature, of homeopathy, of intelligent mothering.

There was a time when mother’s instincts were accepted and respected as the norm. My Sicilian grandmothers birthed their babies at home, treated colds and infectious diseases with a good dose of sweat, sleep and garlic and nursed their big families through many ills without the aid of doctors, clinics and hospitals. Were they better off? I believe they were, for their offspring were free of the scourge of modern society such as allergies, autism, depression, ADD, sterility and a host of modern illness that only this generation is plagued with.

Homeopaths and other natural health care providers regard the use of drugs to be not only detrimental to our children’s health, but also the cause of many, if not most, of the ills of today’s society. Each of the above illness can be attributed to the use of drugs and their kin.

Yet, we can hold on to the old ways. The ways of knowing deeply how to care for our children and to trust our children’s bodies to be able to do what is intended. That is, to grow up without a medicament for every little ill.

Women throughout history have relied on homeopathy for everything from ear infections to head injuries. I urge families to own a few choice homeopathy books and a homeopathy kit. Once this little system is in place, everything a family needs is readily available.

It can be difficult to resist the temptation to give our children drugs. After all, we only want what is best for them. And we certainly don’t want them to suffer the pain of an ear infection or a sore throat. But, if we understand that the medications of commerce will often cause further suffering in the future, the choice becomes an easy one.

Homeopathy forces us to really know and observe our children to make the correct remedy choice and keeps us focused on what matters…our family. In a world that encourages moms to leave the home early in lieu of careerism, homeopathy, instead, celebrates the home, the cuddle and the right dose of discipline. Instead of dragging our children from specialist to specialist, moms can treat children in the kitchen while making an old fashioned meal. Isn’t that what we were meant to do?

We need to trust our innate ability to treat our children without interference. To make choices that are based on what is best for our family as a whole. Homeopathy is rational medicine that supports mother’s intuition and family to the fullest. Time honored traditions, time honored care. It just feels right.

Want a quick reference for the uses of the main homoeopathic remedies for injury cases? For the sake of those who aren’t clear on homeopathy’s role in medical practices throughout the world, allow me to declare its sterling reputation. Homeopathy was counted upon by American Civil War surgeons, WW1 and WW2 camps and is the mainstay of homeopathic emergency rooms throughout the world.

The following remedies; used in medium to high potencies work best for those who are familiar with homeopathy. They should be repeated every 15-30 minutes in severe situations and more infrequently as the pathology becomes less serious. There is nothing wrong with continuing the course of action for a week or even longer, as long as symptoms remain. Here is a short list of the best remedies and their indications to have committed to memory and to have on hand:

1. Bitten Ledum 12. Infected Arsenicum iodatum
2. Bled Vipera 13. Inflamed Ferrum phos
3. Burned Urtica urens 14. Lacerated Hypericum
4. Bruised Arnica montana 15. Punctured Ledum
5. Contused Arnica montana 16. Poisoned Arsenicum
6. Dislocated Arnica montana 17. Suffocated Carbo veg
7. Exerted Rhus tox 18. Shocked Aconitum
8. Electrocuted Phosphorus 19. Stung Ledum
9. Fatigued Bioplasma 20. Over indulged Nux vomica
10. Impaled Hypericum 21. Slivered Silica
11. Incised Calendula

The more serious the situation, the higher the potency needed of either Arnica or Aconitum. For example if someone has had a concussion of severity, on the way to the hospital, a 1M potency would be advisable. Offer it every 15 minutes or more until consciousness is restored. If instead, it’s only a mild head injury Arnica 30 will often do the trick when offered every 15 minutes or so. You would use a 200 potency for a moderate injury.

The less experience you have, the more important it is to stay with lower potencies such as 30c or 30x. Homeopathy is safe when and only when utilized properly. So I entreat you to learn as much as you can and when you’re finished, learn a little more. If you’re unsure, call us for a consultation. We’re always in the ready.

Twenty one fine remedies, each with its unique ability to address their corresponding ailments. If you want to learn more of these and how to own, use and know them cold, go to “Perform in the Storm; A Homeopathic 1st Aid” download.

The homeopathic treatment of injuries is rational, intelligent and safe. There are no side effects, no addictions and best of all; they get to the essence of the crisis. Get a handle on your understanding of the use of homeopathy. It could be the solution you’re looking for when life’s calamities get too big. Tiny pills, miniscule dilutions, hefty results…homeopathy.

Ask us about our homeopathy kits. We have a first aid kit, a general home use kit in 30 potencies as well as 200 potencies available at our office. Then get started!
