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!

There’s no time like the present and now is the time to take control of your family’s health and well-being.  Let me get you started with my free webinar called “The 5 Most Common Mistakes Parents Make in Their Children’s Health.”

We’ve all made mistakes without realizing it, but that doesn’t mean we have to keep making those same mistakes over and over again, does it?

Truth is, many of us have goofed up when it comes to helping our children through an illness. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

In my upcoming webinar, I’m not just going to fill you in on those five infamous mistakes; I’m going to share a tried-and-true method that’s both safe and effective to correct those mistakes.

Millions of parents are already using this model to either reduce their visits to doctors’ offices or to take 100% control of their family’s health altogether.

I’d like to show you 5 ways to fever-proof your kids and how homeopathy is the sure way to address sickness in your own home.

In fact, homeopathy is the safest and most reliable health system in the world today.

Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom with a large family or a professional mom who just needs those easy, go-to tips to keep your children healthy, join me and I’ll show you how to be prepared for anything and everything!

Plus, wouldn’t you like a chance to win a scholarship for my new system that’s starting up soon?

I hope you’ll join me. I know you’ll learn so much! Sign up HERE.

“Anyone who tells a lie has not a pure heart, and cannot make a good soup.”

Leave it to the great Beethoven to mix morality with soup. (A tall order for his distressed servants, no doubt!)

Allow me to be “pure-hearted” here and share a recipe that represents a key nutritional foundation with a symphony of possibilities. This soup base is the foundation of every well prepared soup imaginable. Plus, it is free of MSG and preservatives that flavor many store-bought broths and soups.

I start with roasted bones and end with a gorgeous stock.  I find that the most delicious and nourishing stocks are those made from a variety of bones, so plan to save your roast chicken, roast beef, pork, lamb, buffalo and rabbit.

Here’s what else you’ll need:

4 lbs (approximately) of bones (carcass, head, feet, cartilage, antlers, etc)

4 or more quarts cold, filtered water

½ cup vinegar, distilled or raw

2 apples, halved

3 onions, halved

3 celery stalks, halved

3 carrots, halved

Several sprigs of fresh thyme

1 tsp dried green peppercorns, crushed (optional)

1 bunch parsley (optional)

Once your roast has been served, add approximately 4 quarts of water to the roasting pan and scrape the bottom to infuse the drippings into the mix. Toss in any additional bones, heads, feet, etc. and add the remaining ingredients. Be sure that the bones are covered. If not, add more water.

I like to include apples and onions because they impart a sweeter aroma to a stock that might smell gamey otherwise. Vinegar is necessary to draw out the calcium, magnesium and zinc from the bones and render the bone stock more nutritious.

Then, set the pot to simmer for 12-72 hours. Skim off the scum and discard. The pot can remain on the flames for an entire 72 hours or turned off nightly, left at room temperature and reignited in the morning. Once strained, the stock can be frozen.

While it’s still on the stove, this stock can be used as a base for a myriad of soups.  You might find that the stock doesn’t have a particularly appealing aroma but it will taste delicious after it’s strained and used to cook with.

With this base, you can offer “medicine in a bowl” in tandem with the other, family-pleasing meals you serve day after day.

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!

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.

Joette Calabrese a professional in homeopathy

Joette Calabrese

I feel like I’ve hit the ground running this New Year’s!

But I couldn’t be more thrilled since I’m busy preparing for my intensive, 2-day seminar in Chico, California. The WAPF chapter of Chico Butte has invited me to teach mothers and others how they can be the healer in their families using homeopathy and plain old common sense.

This is my life’s passion, so it’s all very exciting for me.

And besides, who wouldn’t be eager for the California sunshine? It’s a welcome change from the cold, grey winter that settled into Western New York.

Feel free to check out seminar and registration details here. I hope you’ll be able to join me and learn how YOU can become the sole healer in your family.

Maybe we’ll meet there!

 Do you know how you felt on the first Christmas when you learned that there was no Santa?  That feeling of exhilaration because of the festivities, family and gifts, but then a let down from the reminder that the kindly old fellow didn’t really exist.

Well, that’s the way I felt at the Weston A. Price Conference last weekend in Dallas.

The camaraderie, the astute and inspiring speakers, and then the recollection of the cold reality that we have a mountain to move to get our voices heard regarding food and health freedom.

Then again, the pure delight of meeting so many able people.  This was often followed by sadness when my glance met the eyes of moms who were suffering remorse when they realized they had previously made questionable choices for their families.

Up, down, up down.

It was almost dizzying with intellectual and arousing shifts. I needed to put it all straight in my head.

After pondering it on my flight home, I came away from it all with three ideas:

1)     That this freedom movement will be arduous, but possible and even quite probable.

2)     That what we had given our children and what we had allowed them to be subjected to, compared to what we give them now involves an important path that is practically necessary to a newly acquired thought process.   For, we’d probably not be interested in any of this, if it hadn’t been for someone we love who has suffered at the hand of industrialized foods and chemical medical methods.

3)     That we’re not alone; each in our own cities and towns, with joined hands around the world in one of the most riveting movements of our times.

I met and dined with a wonderful 70+ year old architect from Australia, a young father from England and  a  woman from South America.  I met Conservative Jews, Amish, Bible-based Christians, Roman Catholics, New- Agers, Conservatives, Liberals, and Libertarians.  And we all agreed on one thing…..health freedom is a commanding movement in our world.

I’ve been interested and involved in this philosophy for nearly 30 years.  It has shaped the posturing of my mothering skills, professional choices and political positions…. even my religious affiliation.

Yet, until I experienced the depth and breadth of this conference with over 1500 participants, it had never occurred to me in most of those years that this could be a full-fledged faction of such proportion.

Surely there is a Santa.  I know, because I’ve met his elves.

They were all bustling at the Weston A. Price Conference in Dallas and they’re making their place in American and world history.

Real food, family farms, drug free medicine and empowerment to families is real.

Santa lives!
