Okay Moms & Dads, if any of you are like me and wish you knew how to help your family through any health crisis without turning to toxic meds on your list of options, learn today from homeopathy expert, Joette Calabrese, as she explains more about a much better choice! Here's Joette…
The Armageddon of Ear Infections
Imagine a 3-year-old girl screaming—in Portuguese—for someone to “Rip my ear off! Take it off, take it off! I SAID RIP THE EAR OFF!”
A little over a year ago, while one of my staff members—Paola—was in the middle of a move to Texas, her daughter developed a cold, which quickly turned into a BLAZING ear infection. Paola recounts:
“Our home is a bilingual one, so imagine a 3-year-old girl screaming about her ear infection in two languages. Of course, toddlers don’t become articulate about their symptoms until the infection becomes, as I like to call it, the Armageddon of ear infections. Lovely.”
For my Paola, the end of this story could have played out in two different ways.
She could have freaked! She could have taken the very hot, feverish girl, to an emergency room, littered with sick people and their infectious germs. Because she didn’t understand fevers, the fever alone could bring her into a panic, and the ER physician—who had little pediatric experience—would be The Great Hero.
Later, the follow up visit to the pediatrician would result in the prescription of a new, “better” antibiotic (as the original prescription was apparently not well-suited for children). To top it off, the little girl could look forward to another upcoming ear infection in the future, “as these have a history of reoccurring.”
Well, isn’t that just peachy? The doctors would not mention, however, that even further down the road, mom could plan on the sudden onset of chronic issues, like gluten intolerance.
By now you can imagine that this version of dealing with an ear infection is not a hypothetical situation, for it is the exact scenario that Paola experienced with one of her older children several years prior.
In this version, Paola begins by opening her homeopathy kit. This clever mom selects the remedy Belladonna, 30C; she’s learned from one of my various courses that ear infections, which present with high fevers and angry emotions, are often met with Belladonna. Paola also knows that while the plant Belladonna—in its original form—is considered a toxic nightshade, when it’s prepared into a homeopathic remedy, any negative symptoms and potential ills are completely removed. (Find Belladonna here.)
With great confidence Paola begins dosing this remedy rather frequently at first. Within the first hour, there was marked improvement. Paola continues dosing the homeopathic remedy as needed over the next several hours, and Eva eventually falls into an exhausted sleep in her mother’s arms.
Mom is a more appropriate hero, don’t you think?
By morning, Eva is completely fine. The painful infection is just a bad memory: “Mom, remember my ear? It doesn’t hurt anymore. Lucky!”
A few months later, instead of developing gluten intolerance, Eva and her family go on a vacation. What a preferable alternative!
Because homeopathy entered my life just before I became a mother, I have never resorted to any kind of drugs for my children, as Paola has. But virtually all my clients have been both versions of Paola: The freaking mom and the confident one.
With her newfound skills in homeopathy, Paola has been the hero in many other situations:
Pink eye, bronchitis, pneumonia, bladder infections, influenza, strep throat, sore throats, headaches, bee stings, food poisoning, tetanus infection, testicular torsion, sleeplessness, nightmares, nausea, seasonal allergies, asthma, panic attacks, anxiety, grief, tetanus, hemmoraging and more.
This doesn’t even cover the ailments of friends who reach out to Paola, asking for her “take” on a given illness. Just as I did many years ago, Paola has clearly stepped out of the ‘freaking mom’ role and stepped into the ‘confident mother’ one.
So my question to you is, if I promised you that you could get that confidence if you invested a little bit of your time, would you want it? If this confidence was as easy as ‘grabbing it off the shelf,’ would you snatch that knowledge? I get the feeling you would.
Hear me now: If you want it bad enough, you can have it.
With my encouragement, Paola learned how to raise a drug-free family with homeopathy, which is not simply ‘home remedies’, and it’s often misunderstood as essential oils or herbs. Homeopathy is much more. It is a system of natural medicine with laws, rules, textbooks, and methods. You need some learning in order to employ it properly. So with that in mind, I have made it my mission to simplify this medicine in a manner that is practical and usable…and now I’m ready to deliver it to your doorstep.
I wanted to create a program that could launch newbies into homeopathy.

Confident: doctors can only give out: antibiotics, steroids and laxatives. Even cuts can be crazy glued.

I feel her pain! One of my eardrums ruptured while we were camping in the UP, at 10 pm!
We stopped at the town fire department, and they told us the hospital was an hour away, so they called ahead to tell them we were coming. It was awful.
Great article 🙂
