You are listening to a podcast from JoetteCalabrese.com
where nationally certified American homeopath, public speaker, and author, Joette Calabrese,
shares her passion for helping families stay healthy through homeopathy and nutrient-dense
Jendi: Hello! This is Jendi and I’m here with Joette from JoetteCalabrese.com. Today,
we’re going to talk about Skin, The Ugly Truth. Hello, Joette! How are you?
Joette: I’m doing well, Jendi. Nice to
talk with you, as always.
All-natural foods that you can use on your face
Jendi: Let’s jump right into the topic. What do you use or recommend people use on
their skin? Joette: I urge people to use only food. And
I don’t mean ketchup and relish. I mean food such as ointments and oils that are made
that are actually from the kitchen. So coconut oil. Now, some people can’t use
coconut oil. And it turns out that sometimes, it’s folks whose families originate from
Northern Europe. So Germany and Sweden and those parts of the world often can’t use
coconut oil. It’s uncomfortable for them or they actually have allergic reactions to
them. And I think it’s because coconuts are from around the Equator.
So coconut oil is one of my first choices but if that doesn’t work, butter. Yes, but
without salt. Because if you have any cracks or abrasions, then of course, salt is going
to hurt. But butter is so available. There it is. It’s right in the kitchen. In the
old days, they used to say if you have a burn, you put butter directly and, of course, it’s
salt-free butter. But one of my favorites on skin besides butter
is tallow and/or lard. So lard is the fat that’s been rendered from a pig, and tallow
is the fat that’s rendered from the fat of beef and you can make it yourself. Now,
it’s hard to find this in grocery stores but if you happen to be purchasing your own
meat directly from a farmer, then you ask for the fat and you render your own. It’s
very easy to do. And then if that doesn’t work, you can often purchase it online.
Also, another product that can be used on the skin is cod liver oil. So that sounds
like it would smell really awful. However, there’s a wonderful product that Radiant
Life sells and it’s cod liver oil that’s made into a product without the preservatives,
etc., etc., that doesn’t have a strong odor. So cod liver oil is another good one.
Saturated fat is what it’s boiling down to. And then, of course, the reason we don’t
use other products that are manufactured on the skin is because they cause trouble in
the long run. They may cover up, they may make things a little more comfortable for
a short period of time, but in the end, you don’t put anything on your skin that you
wouldn’t eat because the moment you put it on your skin, it’s absorbed into the
system. And the way that I know this, besides the
fact that this is a known fact, is that I learned years ago when my oldest son was a
little boy and it was before I knew enough about homeopathy to treat his colds and flus
and sore throats, etc., with homeopathy. So I used essential oils and herbs and things
like that. So I knew that if you put garlic and you mix it together with olive oil, you
mash it all up, and you put it on the bottom of someone’s feet who has got a cold or
an infection of sorts, it will absorb into the skin and deal with the infection at hand.
So he was about maybe 2, 2-1/2 years old, and I had this mixture of garlic and olive
oil and I said, “Okay, lay down here on the bed.” I put an old towel under his feet
and I said, “I’m going to rub your feet up with this garlic oil and you stay very
still,” because I didn’t want his feet to touch the covers and ruin the blankets,
etc. So I went off, went into the bathroom, washed
my hands of all the garlic that I had on them, got some old socks, got another towel to wrap
up his feet with as well, came back, put the socks on, wrapped his feet up, put the covers
on him, and kissed him. And within those five minutes, his breath smelled of garlic. That’s
how fast what we put on the skin is absorbed into the body. So we always want to use the
most pure items on our skin that is worthy of our entire body. The skin is not hermetically
sealed. It is an organ that is a part of the entire system. So nothing but food.
Jendi: So that kind of rules out a lot of makeup.
Joette: It does rule out makeup. However, I have a little caveat. Because we women want
to be lovely, it is important to use a high-quality makeup, to use as little as possible. I wear
eyeliner. I wear lipstick, not on a day-to-day basis but when I go out. So I buy the highest
quality that I can find. And if you’re going to use a foundation, then you want to try
to find something that is the cleanest and the purest. Now, I’ve done a lot of reading
on this through the years. I don’t use foundation personally but I know many women who do, and
one of the companies that I like is Dr. Hauschka but I don’t know that I’m going to stand
behind that product. I’m just going to tell you that I use their lipstick and I use their
eyeliner. So I do know that they have foundation and I’ve not researched deeply into what
kind of foundation ingredients are involved. But you want to read those ingredients and
if there’s anything in there you can’t pronounce, I would think twice about it.
Jendi: When you say about the saturated fats, that’s for lotion and cleaning, like a cleanser
at night. Is that what you use them for? Joette: No. For a cleanser at night, I would
use baking soda and water. I would use raw vinegar and water. I would use a high-quality
soap. I like Kirk’s soap. It’s just coconut oil. I don’t remember what else is in it
but you can get unscented and I like that. But that’s only if you feel you absolutely
must wash your face. I don’t wash my face. I’ll be honest with you. I can’t remember
the last time I got soap and scrubbed my face. I just don’t do that. I put water on my
face. And whatever comes down from my shampoo, then that’s useful, too. But I use coconut
oil and sometimes butter and/or tallow or lard on my face and my body in general most
every day, even just a little bit. I put it on my neck and all around my eyes and it feels
good to me. My skin is not dry but sometimes it feels slightly tight, and that feels very
comforting to me. Uprooting the problem versus suppressing it
Jendi: I’ve been trying to find something for my daughter who’s struggling with acne.
I know she needs to keep her face clean, so will the coconut oil help her with that?
Joette: Yes. I believe that keeping clean and then coconut oil afterwards or lard or
tallow, one of those. It flies in the face of what most people would believe is problematic
with the skin and that you have to get rid of the oils. But I believe it’s not the
oils that necessarily are causing the trouble. It’s what’s going on inside. So when we
talk about this course that I’m about to present on skin, acne is covered in it, and
so we use remedies that are specific for acne, homeopathic remedies, and it’s not something
that you take for the rest of your life. It’s not like something such as an antibiotic.
The goal is to root out the pathology, to root out the skin condition. Acne is one of
the easier ones to get rid of. I find that psoriasis is more difficult. That’s more
entrenched and usually longer lasting for most folks.
But the idea is to get rid of the problem that’s at hand, not cover it up or to scrub
it away. Because it’s only presenting on the skin. It really is a representation of
what’s lurking below, which, of course, is then why we want to make sure that what
we’re putting on our skin is worthy of our entire body. Because it does go directly into
the body and it does have to be processed by the liver. It can affect the gut. We have
to be so careful not to use antibiotic soaps, one of the worst ideas that these companies
have come up with. But it’s based on the pop culture, common medical information that’s
out there that says we have to stay scrupulously clean. I don’t buy that. I don’t think
it’s a matter of staying scrupulously clean. I think it’s a matter of from the inside
out and making sure things are dealt with in a systemic level rather than a localized
level. Jendi: What if somebody has already used
the antibiotic drugs or prednisone or Accutane? Joette: Well, that’s a great question because
I don’t know anyone who hasn’t. You know what I mean? That’s the world in which we
live. Everyone’s used antibiotics. I mean, I think there are very few people in this
world who’ve never had antibiotics. And if they are even in existence, their parents
had antibiotics, and that changes the gut flora for them as well, potentially. So once
you’ve had these injuries or insults to the body, now we want to do the best we can
to be certain that we keep it as pure as we possibly can now and try to help the body
to undo it on its own. But if you use homeopathy and, of course, that’s what I’m teaching
in this course, it will uproot that. If we had to look at life as, “Well, we’re doomed;
we took antibiotics, we took those birth control pills, we used those steroids, there’s nothing
left, we’re just doomed,” then I might as well just crawl into a hole and die because
that’s really a depressing way of looking at life.
The beauty of homeopathy is that it is the savior medically. It is the medicine we thought
we were getting. It’s the medicine we all hoped we were getting without knowing, of
course, the name of it. But every time we went to the doctors, dermatologists – and
I had terrible skin all my childhood life – every time, we all hoped this was going
to do it, this doctor was going to do it, and not only didn’t do it, it made it worse.
Everything that was used on me covered it up for a short period of time, and in the
long run, it bankrupted my account of health, so to speak. It’s like if we use something
on the skin that’s superficial from the drugstore, from the dermatologist, we see
a little bit of benefit. And the benefit is really superficial. It leads us to believe
that, “Wow, this is really working. This is great.” Give it some more time and it
will boomerang. It will come back with a vengeance and cause new problems.
Sometimes, seemingly unrelated problems but in the end, it turns out that the problems
then can go to the gut. We actually see people going to depression as a result of suppressed
skin eruptions. So suppression is a really bad word in homeopathy. We don’t want to
suppress anything. Because if we’re suppressing, it’s as though we’re unscrewing the smoke
alarm in the ceiling when there’s a fire ablaze on the stove. All it’s doing is taking
away the sign that something is wrong. So if you’re outside and there’s a flame
on your stove and you run in, you hear the smoke alarm, you say, “Oh, that darn smoke
alarm. Let’s get rid of that sign, that signal that something is off.” They unscrew
it and they throw it in the garbage and they walk back outside again. Well, wait a minute!
You haven’t gotten to the issue. The issue was the fire on the stove.
And so in the beginning, it appears as though you’ve come up with a solution because you
don’t have to hear the loud, annoying sound of a smoke alarm screaming at you but eventually,
you’re going to have to face the fact that there’s a fire on the stove. And often,
with skin, the fire is related to the gastrointestinal tract. So if somebody’s had an antibiotic,
even one round, or they’ve used birth control pills, even just a few months, or they’ve
used steroids, even just a round of it, a couple of months, a month, what those drugs
do is they suppress the body’s natural ability to resolve the problem, and then it shows
up, depending on what is your weakest link in your body, often on the skin.
So in uprooting the skin problems, we’re not just going to say, “Oh, let’s just
use this ointment and we’re on,” or even, “Let’s just use this tallow or coconut
oil or cod liver oil on our skin and just be done with it.” No, no, no, no, no. It’s
a representation of something that’s going on on a deeper level, and that’s what I
want to teach or what I’m teaching in this course – How do you get to the bottom of
it? Now, let’s look at what preceded this. What I tell people is, “Look, you want to
know what’s really going on? You want to really get an idea of what has caused the
skin issue?” Get a pencil. Make sure it’s sharp. Make sure it’s got a good eraser
on it. Get a nice, long sheet of paper and lay out your life in a timeline. The only
part we want to know about your life is all of the health issues. So start now and go
back two months ago or a year ago or six months ago and look at, “Well, I had bronchitis
a year ago.” Now, we don’t want to know just that you had bronchitis. We want to know
what was the treatment for that bronchitis. Oh, antibiotics. Okay. You write down bronchitis,
2013, November, and the antibiotics. Okay, now, you go back further. What was before
that bronchitis? “Oh, there was another bronchitis three years prior to that. Oh,
2011. Here we go. What do you know? Look at this timeline. I remember I took antibiotics
for that, too.” And you go back and you go back. And you can
go all the way back to croup as an infant, the vaccines that were given, the steroids
that were used, and you lay it all out. And the reason I say you need a good eraser is
because you’re going to change things around. And you may not remember exactly everything
as you approach this little task within that same half hour or hour that you put into this.
You keep that timeline out there and two days later, you’re going to say, “You know
what? I forgot to put that part about the fact that I had conjunctivitis.” Or, “I
forgot; you know, I used to get ear infections, too.” Well, conjunctivitis has [met]1529
with antibiotics. Now, we can lay out and say, “Holy cow! I think this does have something
to do with my gastrointestinal tract.” And so when you lay it all out, it is a revelation
of monumental proportions. And once we recognize that, now we can say, “Okay, this does seem
to maybe have something to do with my gastrointestinal tract. And it does seem that every time I
have milk, my acne is worse, or if I have too much milk, or if I have cupcakes with
blue dye on them, or if I have too much wheat. That’s where this is likely coming from.”
Jendi: Is it all going back to the gut or do you pinpoint other issues as well?
Joette: No, there are other issues as well. The other issues are what are the weakest
links in the family inheritance? If you look at someone who has terrible acne, look to
the parents. Did the parents have acne? Now, the parents are likely not to have had acne
quite as severe because it’s generational. And what’s generational is the voluminous
amount of drugs that have come into play in the last generation. So the parent might have
had a little acne, and the parent’s parent didn’t think to take the child to a dermatologist
because in those days, perhaps they just didn’t do it. They said, “Here, just have some
more eggs.” Or, “Get out in the sun or something,” or “Scrub your face better.”
So the answers were, in my estimation, actually more intelligent than going to the dermatologist
and getting the drugs, to be honest. So if there’s a propensity for something,
skin issues – and it may not have been acne for the parent, it could have been eczema,
it could have been a little bit of psoriasis, grandpa may have had just a little bit of
psoriasis on his knees – it was no big deal. Because basically, we’re DNA. I mean, if
we look at ourselves as a biological entity, we are DNA. So the DNA, the clay from which
we’re made is the cumulative aspects of our grandparents and parents, etc., etc. So
if grandpa had a little bit of psoriasis on his leg and didn’t bother with it, maybe
he did use tallow on it because he would have thought to do that. Now, his daughter has
a little bit of acne and they didn’t do much with it. Maybe they used an antibiotic
once or twice and that was the end of it. Now, that daughter has a child and the child
has acne. Now, what we’re looking at is there is a
DNA that’s running through the family. And in homeopathy, we do want to know that, if
we can, because it gives us information as to what remedies that if we’re stuck in
terms of using a specific protocol, the protocols that I teach in my course, we’re stuck and
we don’t know where to go with it, we can always look at a remedy that is specific to
uproot family inheritances. Jendi: So you’re working down to the DNA.
Joette: We’re getting to the bottom of it. A lot of parents tell me – and as I
see it on the internet, it’s everywhere; I mean, it’s one of the most ubiquitous
stories in the internet today – “My child was perfectly healthy, had great skin, until
six weeks old, he was given the vaccines. The vaccine was on Wednesday. On Monday, my
child’s got some eczema. What is this?” Go back to the pediatrician. “Hey, doc,
what’s with this eczema? Could it be related?” “Oh, no! It couldn’t possibly be related
to the vaccine.” Well, if I were in his shoes, I’d be a little uncomfortable, too.
I might want to deny that because I was the guy who did it, potentially. And I’m not
saying it’s a slam dunk but it certainly is a place where we want to start looking,
want to examine all of these medicalized methods of treating the human body. It gets to the
point where you start saying, “Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, stop! Okay. I got to get a breather
here. I got to figure out what’s going on.” And we got to stop treating, treating, treating,
treating. We got to start looking at what else is going on. Now, I’m not going to
say that it’s a slam dunk that it’s vaccines but I hear it all the time. And I don’t
think mothers are whiners. I’m going to be honest with you. I think the watchful eye
of a mother is a very intelligent place for medicine to be looking. Mothers are just the
first step outside of their child and they’re observant, and they note first this, then
that. But if they’re shut down and told, “It can’t be; no, no; there’s no link,”
then she starts to question herself and she starts thinking, “Well, wait a minute. The
pediatrician is saying that can’t possibly be related but boy, it sure seems that way.”
So she subdues herself though. She doesn’t tell people about it because she knows it’s
an uncool thing to say. It sounds uneducated. But what it really is is her gut saying, “But
this timeline, it’s undeniable.” So I urge mothers and grandmothers to pay attention
to what happens to their children and don’t let any industry tell you that you are wrong
about that. I’m not saying you don’t listen to them because doctors are fabulous for diagnostics.
Excellent. You want to know. Is that eczema or is it psoriasis? That can be very useful.
Is this rosacea or is it garden variety acne? That’s useful information, particularly
if you take my course because I distinguish between that sometimes. And the reason I distinguish
it is so that you have an exact protocol of exactly what remedies can be used for something
like that. Homeopathy’s proven efficacy for over 200
years Jendi: And homeopathy can help all of those
that you mentioned? Joette: Homeopathy has a history of being
able to uproot skin issues for over 200 years. In fact, to be precise, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann
started his treatise on homeopathy in 1796. So since 1796, whether it’s acne in Paris
in 1805 or it’s eczema in Leipzig in 1870 or it’s rosacea in Boston, Massachusetts
in 1905, it’s the same remedies. It’s the same stuff. It’s the same protocols.
Pretty much. It’s the same methodology. Nothing capricious, nothing has changed. The
only thing is that most people don’t know about homeopathy. That’s the problem. Not
that the medicines of homeopathy don’t know how to uproot the illness, it’s that nobody
knows that it’s possible. That’s the crux of the problem.
Jendi: Is there any skin problem that you wouldn’t recommend homeopathy for?
Joette: I can’t think of one. And having worked in Kolkata at the Prasanta Banerji
Homeopathic Research Foundation, I saw skin issues that you would never see here. And
why would we not see them here but we would see them there? That’s kind of the burning
question. Is it because there is so much more poverty there? Well, that’s part of the
picture. That is part of the answer. Is it that they’re more prone because they’re
Indian and not American? No, I don’t think so. I think that the reason is that because
of the poverty, they don’t go to the dermatologist and the dermatologist doesn’t get a chance
to suppress it. So they still have illnesses that are expressed on the skin, where in the
United States, you don’t see as many skin issues here. And instead, we see other issues
because they’re a result of the suppression of all the drugs that have been used on Americans
for so many years. When I was a little girl, I used to take a
bus to school. It was not a school bus. It was a city bus. And I would get in the bus
and I had eczema as a child and it was pretty severe. So I was hypersensitive to other people’s
skin issues. And because of that, I would sit down on the bus and I would look around
and I would see all the other people’s skin issues. There were lots, lots of skin issues
in those days. We’re talking about the ‘50s and ‘60s. I saw people with lots of warts.
I saw people with lots of skin tags. I saw people with eczema and psoriasis and flaking
of skin, and I noted it because I was so aware of my own skin.
Now, mine was pretty ugly, but it was so suppressed that it only was able to come through every
once in a while because of the ointments that had been used on my skin for so long. But
a lot of people didn’t have the availability of a dermatologist like I did, and the reason
I did, perhaps, was because I had a lot of doctors in my family, cousins, etc. And so
we were taken to the doctors much sooner, I think, back in the ‘50s when it was just
starting to become a lifestyle. Now, I have to admit, I haven’t been on
a bus in many years but my guess is if I were to hop on a bus today, I would likely not
see those kinds of skin issues. Instead, I saw them in India. So it’s the outward expression
of a deeper pathology that remains on the skin for many people in India. And so I saw
leprosy in India. That still exists. I saw psoriasis that just encapsulated the body.
Not sat on top of the skin, encapsulated the body, so it looked as though there was a second
skin on top of them. I certainly saw acne and eczema, psoriasis, chronic hives, alopecia,
which is hair loss, which we have to consider on some level is a skin issue. So in this
country, we look better. The middle class looks better but in many ways, we’re worse
off or sicker. Jendi: Did you see some of those cases in
India get better? Joette: Yes. I did see it. And not only was
I keenly interested in this because of my own history with skin and because I knew I
was going to be putting this course together within a year or so, I went back and I went
to the data that they collect on the second floor of this world class research center.
By the way, I might add, all they used was homeopathy even though they were all doctors,
medical doctors. And I went on the second floor and I asked to speak to some of the
data inputters on the second floor so that I could go back and look. They took photographs
and you could see the history of a particular case going back to see how bad it was. So
that if I observed a case downstairs with the doctors of psoriasis, for example, and
I saw that the plaque still remained but the doctors turned to me and said, “This case
was much worse a year and a half ago,” I went upstairs and looked at it. I wanted to
see it before, because now I’ve seen the whole case. And then I recorded it so that
I knew how long it would take. Psoriasis takes a long time to root out homeopathically, but
it is doable.
Joette’s personal battle with eczema and other health issues
Jendi: When did you conquer your own skin problem?
Joette: Well, I didn’t. And this is what happened. I was six weeks old – and I tell
the story in my course – I was six weeks old and I was healthy and everything was fine
and I went for my first vaccinations and shortly after, I started to develop, within about
a week or two, eczema on my face. My cheeks looked very rosy, but then too rosy, then
they looked rough. Off we went to the dermatologist, apparently, and my parents were told I had
eczema and that I had to stay away from anything that tasted good – dairy, so cheese, and
milk, and orange juice, and chocolate. Of course, I wasn’t having chocolate at that
age. I was too young. But nonetheless, all of those kinds of things could not be included
in my diet. And I couldn’t wear wool, and I couldn’t have feathers around me, so I
couldn’t have a feather pillow and couldn’t be around dogs and couldn’t have cats, and
of course, then there was dust. So basically, what you’re doing is you’re living a life
of abstinence from everything. I mean, how do you deal with all of that?
So I had eczema in spite of all the shots and all the treatments that I had, and I had
plenty, all the way up until puberty. And then at puberty, something changed, which
often happens for many people with eczema. Instead of it being eczema and going to the
dermatologist, we ended up at the gastroenterologist because now, I had stomach pains, because
all along, it was a gastrointestinal issue because that’s often what a vaccine can
trigger, for example. So all along, it was a gastrointestinal issue, and the dermatologist
knew that to a certain degree because I wasn’t allowed to eat certain foods. So obviously,
what was being put in my stomach was affecting my skin to a certain degree. Now, my mother
made sure that I abstained from all of those foods but, you know, it still lived on. There
was much more to it than just the food. So then in my teens, I got very sick with
a lot of gastrointestinal issues, and then in my 20s, I had a period of respite where
nothing bothered me, and I call that the grace period. And most people, their 20s is a grace
period. I don’t get very many people calling me in their 20s who are sick with skin issues,
or any other issue for that matter. It usually doesn’t come back with a vengeance until
they get into their 30s. Because then in their 20s, they’re taking birth control pills,
another big mistake as far as I’m concerned. If they have a little cold or a little boil
or a little sore throat, off to the doctor they go and they get antibiotics. So now,
they’re revving up for what’s going to happen in their 30s. And then in their 30s,
it’s wham! All hell lets loose, and that’s exactly what happened to me.
And so I was very sick. I went to doctors again, after doctor, after doctor, after doctor.
I was actually married to a doctor in my 20s so I believed in the medical paradigm, the
conventional medical paradigm. It took a lot to get it out of my head that drugs were not
going to be the answer. It took a long time. I wanted to go to “the learned”. But the
learned had learned only to use drugs. I didn’t realize that for a long time. Until finally,
I said, “That’s it. I’m just as sick with drugs as I am without drugs, so I’m
going to stop all drugs. Not even an aspirin, not a Tylenol, nothing. I’m going to get
everything that’s in my medicine cabinet thrown in the garbage.” And I did. I got
rid of everything, except for one thing, Benadryl, which I had never used but I was afraid because
I started to develop asthma at that time, I was afraid very much that Benadryl could
be a lifesaver for me. I never opened it, never used it, and kept it for a long time
and then finally, eventually, threw that out as well once I learned the method to uproot
asthma as well.
Joette finally finds homeopathy So now, I had asthma and chronic fatigue and
a lot of other issues and I don’t want to go into it all. I don’t want to bore people.
But I had a lot of problems. I changed my diet. I was vegan, I was macrobiotic, and
I went to both of these. First vegan for many, many, many years. Not that many. It was for
about three years, I should say. And then macrobiotic for a few years as well, very
strict because I wanted relief. When you want relief, you’ll go to the extreme, and that’s
exactly what I did. Then I went to vitamin therapy. I used essential oils for many years.
I studied them. I studied herbs. I picked my own herbs in the way fields around my home
and made my own tinctures.
And I went through all of these paradigms until finally, I met up with a homeopath.
It was a lecture I had gone to and it was around the time my son was born and the doctor
was offering lectures. He was a homeopath and an MD and he offered this lecture and
it completely turned my head. It was the most logical lecture I’ve ever been to. Finally,
somebody was saying something that made sense, and I didn’t even know what the word homeopathy
meant. He wouldn’t take my case so I found someone who had studied in England. About
six months later, I met with her. She lived about an hour away from where I lived, and
she cured me, cured me of the asthma, a good amount of the chronic fatigue. The asthma
was gone in fairly short order. The chronic fatigue took longer. And then I decided I
wanted to learn. And once I learned how to use homeopathy, then I was able to finish
the rest of what she hadn’t finished for me. But I never turned back.
Jendi: And now you have beautiful skin? Joette: Now I have beautiful skin. Now I
don’t have gut problems. Now I don’t have asthma. I don’t have any of those things.
I get a little bit of allergies at this time of year. I don’t know if you’ve noticed,
I’ve scratched my nose here and there. I feel a little itchy once in a while when the
leaves turn and there’s mold, etc., and there’s a change in weather. Nothing compared
to what I’ve had all my life. And I can eat anything now.
Jendi: Even chocolate? Joette: Yes, even chocolate, but I just don’t
eat it in large amounts. Jendi: So you’ve taken all this learning
and what you tried on yourself and you’re putting it into this course. Can you tell
us a little bit? Is it just reading or is it audio, video? What is it?
Joette: It’s audio and it’s a PowerPoint presentation, and it is my opus on many levels.
It’s cumulative of literally 62 years of trying to figure this skin thing out from
the time I was six weeks old. Now, I didn’t have the wherewithal to figure things out
when I was six weeks old, but I can tell you, very early on in my age, I said, “There’s
got to be a cure for this. There’s got to be a way.” I’m remembering say maybe 8
or 9 years old. “There’s got to be a cure. Why am I not better?” And so this is the
answer, as far as I’m concerned. So what I’m going to teach folks is how
to deal with most of the common skin ailments that people suffer from, and I’m using the
protocols, I’m teaching them the protocols that I learned when I was in India working
with Doctors Banerji. Then we’re going to use some cases. It will be live to start and
then later on, of course, it will be recorded and we’ll be able to probably present it
a couple of years from now as well. But this is a live course and folks will be able to
join in and not only submit cases, and I can’t promise I’ll cover all cases but I’m going
to try to find as much time as I can to do that, but they’ll be able to join in on
an online forum where other people who are suffering from the same skin issues or their
children or their parents are suffering, they will be able to meet and discuss what has
helped them out of the protocols that I’ve presented.
Jendi: Sounds like a great course. And they can get that through JoetteCalabrese.com?
Joette: Yes. They’d go to JoetteCalabrese.com, and when you go there, there will be information.
And I urge you to read the story – I mean, I give more information about my own personal
story – and note what other people have said about how skin issues have been resolved
for them with these homeopathic Banerji Protocols. Jendi: Thank you so much, Joette, for talking
to us today and telling us about homeopathy and your own story, and I for one am going
to go get my coconut oil out of the cupboard and try it on my face today.
Joette: Great, Jendi! It’s been a pleasure.
