Intro to Homeopathy: The Perfect Starting Point

By | Homeopathy

So you are interested in homeopathy, but you would like to learn more about what it is and how it is used? Over 500 million people around the world use homeopathy. Here are just some reasons to learn more about this amazing medicine:

  • Homeopathy offers a safe way of addressing your children’s health concerns
  • Homeopathy is an option for individuals who have not found help from conventional and natural health modalities
  • Homeopathy is inexpensive and FDA regulated

If you’ve been considering learning more about homeopathy, Cilla’s class, Intro to Homeopathy, is an excellent starting point. If you have already delved into the study of practical homeopathy, but want to know how it differs from classical homeopathy (and whether or not it is safe), you should also consider this class

Interestingly enough, homeopathy has appealed to intelligent and well-educated individuals for decades. As we learn in Intro to Homeopathy, homeopathy isn’t simply a medicine, it is a discipline and a way of thinking about health that far surpasses the limited viewpoints of conventional medical thought. Let’s start by highlighting some of the viewpoints this class presents:

Health and Adaptability:

Ever hear a mom brag that her child is “never sick?” Western society is guilty of exalting this idea that constant equals health. In Intro to Homeopathy, Cilla dives into the topic of wellness and how health is all about adaptability. Health is demonstrated by an immune system that is capable of rebounding after an illness. Regulation of the immune system is essential to health and only taught through a process of moving through the stages of an illness back to health. A homeopath looks for symptoms that point to a lag in physical, emotional or mental adaptability and assigns a remedy that addresses those areas.

Herring’s Law of Cure:

Unlike conventional medicine that seeks to suppress symptoms, homeopathy is all about listening to what our symptoms are saying! Through the course of homeopathic treatment, a homeopath tunes in to the symptoms presenting in order to determine a remedy and track progress towards health. In Intro to Homeopathy, Cilla describes Herring’s Law of Cure, and how this law helps us to determine one’s state of health as well as the healing process.

Three Principles of Homeopathy:

In order to define what homeopathy is, one must first understand the three distinguishing principles of homeopathy: The Law of Similars, which describes how like cures like; The Law of Totality, which says that a remedy is prescribed based on its expression through the entire organism; and finally, The Law of Minimal Dose, which says that only the smallest amount of medicine that initiates a healing should be given.

Ready to learn more about homeopathy or interested in sharing homeopathy with your family? Intro to Homeopathy is a fantastic class for homeschooling families! This is also a great class if you are someone who struggles to have a confident answer to the question what is homeopathy?

Inquiring Minds Want to Know: Your HP Questions Answered

By | Homeopathy

I love curiosity. It reflects an open mind, a desire to grow, and a spirit of self-reliance. In the current climate of polarization around the vaccine issue, people are seeking accurate information about homeoprophylaxis (HP)– What it is? How does it work? Is it safe?

Parents: Find out more about the safety and efficacy of HP by reading the commonly asked questions in this article. For further reading and information, see the resources listed at the bottom of the page.

Here are some of the most common questions and answers the Real Immunity Team has fielded. Find out how HP can benefit children that have already been vaccinated, how it can be used for those traveling to foreign countries and for college students, how it is safe and does not shed, and how studies have shown that it provides better long-term health outcomes, and more: 

I’ve been hearing this word, homeoprophylaxis, more and more. What exactly is it?

Homeoprophylaxis, also called HP, is the use of highly diluted substances for the purpose of educating the immune system in a gentle, non-toxic way.  These are completely natural; contain no foreign cells, no antibiotics, no preservatives, no adjuvants, and no chemicals of any kind.

My doctor says there is no proof that HP works. Are there any studies?

HP has been studied over the last 200 years in retrospective studies, prospective studies, observational studies, and real-life, boots-on-the-ground applications for epidemics. You can see some of these studies by joining the free Knowledge Vault.

Someone told me this is a “homeopathic vaccine.” Is HP a substitute for vaccines?

HP is perfectly safe when used under the supervision of a qualified practitioner. There are no adjuvants, preservatives, antibiotics, or other excipients in the pellets.

No, it is not a substitute and we do not use the term homeopathic vaccine. HP is “educating and exercising” the immune system to mature in the most robust way. It’s a completely different paradigm – one that promotes robust immunity and better long-term health.

How does it actually work?

HP provides the frequency of disease. It’s an energetic imprint that is recognized by the vital force of the body and as a result the disease is either not contracted, or an appropriate immune response is raised. For more on vitalism and how HP and homeopathy works, you can stream Cilla’s films Quest for Real Immunity and Passage to Real Immunity from the comfort of your home.

I’m worried about safety since there was a scare about those homeopathic teething tablets.

HP is completely safe when administered with proper supervision. It’s energetic information and contains no material substance. You cannot overdose. Additionally, there are no adjuvants, preservatives, antibiotics, or other excipients in the pellets. With over 1500 children in our programs, we have never seen any adverse effects.

Can HP benefit my child if he’s been vaccinated already?

Lots of parents choose to change lanes after seeing or learning something that makes them uncomfortable. It’s possible to administer HP regardless of prior vaccines. While HP does not reverse vaccine injury, it can help to re-regulate the immune system to help it get back on track.

I’m worried about “shedding” since I have relatives with very young infants.

HP does not “shed” nor can you catch the disease from taking the pellets.

My daughter is older and starting college. Can she use HP at all?

Yes! HP can be used by babies (starting after 1 month of age), children of any age, college students, adults, people traveling to tropical areas, pregnant women, or to protect in an epidemic. Visit https://realimmunity.org to see all the services available.

I live in a state that will accept titers for the required diseases. Will HP provide these?

No, titers reflect an inflammatory response in the adaptive arm of the immune system. Real immunity results from a balanced response. HP aims to support natural maturation of immunity. Besides, some people are low or non-responders and don’t produce antibodies yet still don’t get sick. Homeopaths know this. Science hasn’t caught up yet.

My son was vaccinated, and I just want to detox him.
Is this necessary before doing HP?

He may or may not need detoxing depending on how limiting symptoms are. Perhaps constitutional homeopathy can help, or maybe HP can be started.  Best to consult with someone who is properly trained in HP administration.

HP can be given to babies (starting after 1 month of age), children of any age, college students, and adults–even pregnant women. Previously vaccinated individuals can actually BENEFIT from the use of HP.

What’s proper training?

The practitioners with Real Immunity are nationally board-certified homeopaths with over four years of training in homeopathy and additional in-depth training in homeoprophylaxis. Other practitioners trained through Real Immunity are provided 8 hours of training in all aspects of HP. Most importantly, find a practitioner you can relate to comfortably and who will provide you with any support needed as you administer the program at home.

My doctor says we need protection from all the diseases typically vaccinated for.

Is your doctor up to date on information about rotovirus, diphtheria, HPV and other diseases? Schedule a brief consult with one of us at Real Immunity and we can fill you in. Or take a quick look at this page: https://realimmunity.org/faqs/

Isn’t it better to just do nothing, eat well and take supplements?

Yes, that’s the common assumption.  And sound nutrition is definitely a part of robust immunity.  Here’s the difference – When Dr. Isaac Golden did his 15-year study he found that the HP group had better long-term health outcomes. In other words, they had fewer colds, allergies, eczema, etc.  He attributed this to the concept that they were actually receiving the diseases in an energetic form and thus had all the benefits of natural disease with none of the risks. In other words, they were “exercising their immune systems” in a healthy way.

How can I get started?

The programs and offerings at www.realimmunity.org are easy to understand and all inclusive.  If you’d like to speak with a practitioner first, you can schedule a 15-minute consult with your additional questions.

When Tensions Run High: A Response to the Loss of Religious Exemptions

By | Cell Salts, Immunization

Can you feel the panic emanating from the state of New York? I can! When rights are removed with no regard for due process, families naturally feel threatened and frightened. We are certainly living in interesting times. It‘s now more important than ever to stay focused in the present moment.

Remember the words of Dr. Debra Gambrell in The Quest for Real Immunity: “Fear is just a prayer for what we don’t want.”  The most effective way to stay out of fear is to stay anchored in the present moment, not ruminate on the possible (unpredictable) future, and envision the outcome we want to see happen. This requires focus!

In a recent week-long meditation retreat with Dr. Joe Dispenza, we learned that where we focus our attention is where our energy goes. Thoughts and emotions have a vibration. They produce hormones and wire synapses in our brain. Repetition of thoughts or emotions have the potential to manifest results on the material plane. I witnessed this over and over again during that week and also saw scientific data validating brain scans associated with certain thoughts and moods.

Effort to focus attention is never wasted. Attention equals awareness; awareness equals consciousness. And each person who expands their consciousness, then raises the consciousness of others. No one needs to convince anyone else of anything; we just need to be clear and confident and aware. All things will work together as a result. Trust me. This is real.

We also live in a material world and are the observers of cause and effect. We need to prepare to the best of our ability. What are the options? What if I am forced to perform a medical act that may cause harm? Is there a way to mitigate such harm?  What if I am in the military or immigrating an adopted child to the USA?  And most importantly, what’s the big picture? Clearly society is birthing something huge with the fever that’s rising. How can we best usher in greater awareness?

Remember the cell salts that often offer us support in times of crisis, and are accessible even to those of us embarking onto the path of homeopathy. They offer a helping hand in moments of emotional turmoil, and can prepare the body in order to mitigate injuries without being swept away by the panic?

These are all answers I want to share with you. But not in a public forum at risk of being censored. My goal is to contribute to health and vitality; to uplift and inspire; to educate and expand. The remedy to much of the insanity we are observing is to go within and find peace and steadiness. In the words of Thich Nhat Hanh, “Freedom is not given to us by anyone; we have to cultivate it ourselves. It is a daily practice… No one can prevent you from being aware of each step you take or each breath in and breath out.”

For those struggling with fear, indecision and uncertainty regarding titers, and detoxing, I have created a class just for you! This online class will address the health concerns parents may be experiencing and ways to deal with the current compliance required by New York and other states who have recently outlawed religious exemptions.

Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Get Empowered About Detox, Homeschooling, Titers, and Your Next Steps will go live August 8, at 8:00 ET/7:00 CT/5:00 PT. All are welcome to join Cilla for this presentation. The cost is only $25 to make this information accessible to all families. This will be a “live” presentation on Thursday August 8th, however, if you are unable to attend you will still be granted access to the recorded version of the class for later viewing.

The following topics will be covered, and more:

  • Do alternative methods create antibodies?
  • How quickly can alternative methods work?
  • Are antibodies the answer?
  • Is HP a “substitute” for conventional methods?
  • Can I send my child to college?
  • Where can I find a doctor who is respectful of my choices?
  • Is there “proof” that HP works?
  • How to identify and address vaccinosis
  • What detox steps can be taken if needed?
  • What do I need to know about mitigating injuries and damage?
  • What do I need to know if I’m considering homeschooling?

Amazing Cell Salts: Homeopathic Vitamins

By | Cell Salts, Homeopathy

Homeopathic cell salts, also known as Biochemical cell salts or Schüessler Salts (after their founder, Dr. William Schüessler) are thought of as the “easy” homeopathy and are certainly accessible to beginners. But even those who have used homeopathy for years have a lot to gain from the use of cell salts. In fact, cell salts are often considered “Homeopathic Vitamins,” so they can often complement your homeopathic health regimen. 

The human body, if reduced to ash would contain the following 12 cell salts discovered by Schüessler in 1873:

Calcarea fluoride
Calcarea phsophoricum
Calcarea sulphuricum
Ferrum phos
Kali muriaticum
Kali phosphoric
Kali sulphuricum
Mag phos
Natrum muriaticum
Natrum phos
Natrum sulphuricum
Silica

Cell salts are, in fact, the building blocks of life. Our cells depend on these minerals for basic functioning, and a deficiency in one or another can cause the appearance of bothersome symptoms.

Cell salts are perfect for pregnant women, nursing mothers, children and the elderly. They are known as “homeopathic vitamins” and offer the vital minerals our cells need.

An important thing to remember about cell salts is that potency matters! Cell salts are found in 3x, 9x and 12x potencies only. Also, Cell Salts are never found in “C” potencies, only “X” potencies. Potency, as well as dosing for emergencies, convalescence, and maintenance, is covered in the class Amazing Homeopathic Cell Salts. Taking breaks while on a cell salt regimen is recommended and advice on how to do this can also be found in the class.

So what can cell salts be used for? The list is endless: Colds, flu, infections, rashes, burns, cramps, cavities, brittle hair and nails, stress, fever, dehydration, inflammation, sore throat, digestive disturbances, coughs, headaches, irritability, colic, teething, constipation, rheumatism, insomnia, heartburn, bloating, allergies, congestion, varicose veins, fatigue and so much more!

Let’s look at a couple cell salts and what they specifically address for a better understanding of how they can be used.

Calcium fluoride: This cell salt is useful in conditions where the body hasn’t “bounced back.” Postpartum, when tissues remain chronically relaxed, is an opportunity to try Calc fluor. Other times that this tissue salt may be used is for enlarged glands, prolapse, muscle weakness, hemorrhoids, and cysts. The mental/emotional picture may be that the person is a hard worker motivated by fear of poverty and the need to excel at what they do. In Amazing Cell Salts, we cover the facial features that can be used to help diagnose a need for this cell salt as well.

Silica: Known as the “homeopathic surgeon,” Silica helps the body to push out splinters and foreign objects that do not belong in the body. Silica is great for promoting healthy hair, skin and nails as it stimulates keratin production. When we see brittle nails, infections, constipation, and boils, Silica is indicated. The mental/emotional picture includes the inability to make decisions, need for approval from others, and stubbornness.

Yes, cell salts, like homeopathy, are completely safe for pregnancy. In fact, pregnancy offers the perfect opportunity to use cell salts, as mom and baby’s bodies go through so many changes and require nurturing and support. In Amazing Cell Salts, there is a wonderful protocol shared by Cilla that can be started in the third month of pregnancy. This protocol supports the different systems that baby is developing: Structural, neurological, blood, and mucous membranes.

Miasmic Treatment: How Homeopathy Moves Us Through Genetic Dispositions

By | Homeopathy

Did you get your blue eyes from your grandmother? How about your curly hair, or your infectious laugh?

Often, inheritance plays a key role in influencing a person’s state and vitalism as well as these physical details. We all inherit proclivities and predispositions towards certain disease. Often these diseases are ones our parents and grandparents may have had or were susceptible to as well. In homeopathy, these inherited proclivities are known as “Miasms.”

Just like hair and eye color, we also inherit proclivities towards certain disease, known in homeopathy as “Miasms.” Miasmic prescribing mitigates the expression of these
proclivities, often reducing the severity of symptoms.

Through miasmic prescribing, homeopaths are able to mitigate the expression of certain genetic inheritances and diseases. Though a person’s genes cannot be altered, the expression of the proclivities carried on these genes can be made less severe or less life threatening.

For example: Those born with Downs Syndrome are often subject to lots of severe respiratory and cardiac symptoms. With constitutional homeopathic treatment, we see a lessening of these symptoms. The vital force has been unencumbered to express itself more freely.

Women treated constitutionally prior to having children diminish the miasmatic influence upon their own vital force, thus offering their offspring freedom from these liabilities.

This is just another area where homeopathy presents a massive opportunity for healing. While science acknowledges the important genetic markers we inherit, homeopathy takes this a step further maintaining that our inheritance also includes aspects of our ancestor’s vital force. In this way, ancestors who may have suffered from scabies may pass on skin issues. Recent scientific genetic research may actually support this claim:

“Genes may only be receivers of information transmitted by the vital force, much like the television is only the receiver of a broadcast transmitted over the airwaves. Thus, just fixing your television won’t improve the quality of the shows you can receive on it, replacing or removing your body parts won’t repair underlying problems with the vital force. And even if you can’t replace your television (your genes) there is still the possibility of improving the quality of the programs it receives (the activity of the vital force.)” From Amy Lansky’s Impossible Cure (p. 104)

Women treated constitutionally prior to having children diminish the miasmatic influence upon their own vital force, thus offering their offspring freedom from these liabilities.

Often miasmic expression can be kept at bay. But under stress or times when the terrain may be disturbed, these expressions often manifest, and a homeopath may augment constitutional treatment to address the miasm that is manifesting.
There are many miasms. In the class Miasms: Painting Health and Emotions, Cilla presents the Cancer, Psoric, Sycotic, Syphlitic and Tubercular Miasms.

When considering miasms, a homeopath looks at the central disturbances and disease manifestations (physical symptoms) as well as the mental-emotional picture. Symptoms that may indicate a Syphlitic Miasm would be alcoholism, depression, suicidal tendencies, mental illnesses, eating disorders, violence, cardiac conditions, birth defects and self-destructive behaviors such as cutting. Often there is also Nocturnal Periodicity: Individuals who are either worse at night or consider themselves Night Owls.

To describe the Syphlitic mental-emotional picture, Cilla offers the case in her Miasm class:

A woman came to her as a client who carried a gun in her purse. She felt she had to protect herself, like others were out to get her, and was very depressed. Upon further observation, it was discovered that she was simply fearful and felt threatened. Syphilinum helped her to move out of this internal state.

Another case involved a small child born with a severe case of Stabismus (crossed-eyes) who was very much helped by Syphilinum.

With homeopathy, there is never a time when the vital force cannot be empowered to promote healing in the body. Miasmic prescribing is simply another tool in the professional homeopath’s tool belt.

Want to Be A Homie? 8 Ways to Think Homeopathically

By | Homeopathy

Have you ever wondered why the same things keep happening to you over and over again?  Maybe it’s having bad luck, or being betrayed, changing jobs so much, or physical accidents.  There’s a reason for that.

Have you ever questioned what all the hub-bub is about over getting the flu? Or what the crazy side effects from medications are really doing to you?  Have you questioned how much influence your genetics have over your physical condition, or even your mental health? 

So have I! That’s why I became a homeopath. The minute I walked into the classroom to start my four-year education in homeopathy, I knew I was home. It all made sense. My questions were answered. I never looked back, and my life was forever changed.

The answers (and more) lie in these eight ways to think homeopathically.  Give it a try!

  1. Accept that life has intelligence.  This is wisdom we all possess. The body is designed to move toward perfection. It does many miraculous things naturally. It digests, eliminates, detoxes, grows, and evolves from a helpless, adorable, dependent being that cannot walk, talk or feed itself, into a full-grown human that can reproduce itself. How can you support vitality and healing in yourself and your children?
  2. Express your symptoms! Whether it’s suppressing a fever, holding back a burp, or denying emotions, we can trust the body/mind/spirit to cough up a symptom as an honest expression of the inner state. And for those mucous producing conditions that can be tempting to suppress, learn instead how to navigate and support them with the Kali Salt Class.
  3. Observe. Observe. Observe. Symptoms hold clues to how to heal and move toward perfection. Now we’re talking about prescribing a remedy. That’s for a future blog.
  4. Acknowledge it all. Befallments are also symptoms. Symptoms aren’t just physical. “Befallments” is a fancy word we use to describe events in our lives. We are whole beings. Duh. Moods are symptoms. Events are symptoms. Fears are symptoms.
  5. Keep it moving. (Or, Go with the flow.) Motion is health. Expressing a symptom, interpreting what it means, then supporting that need, is very very health promoting. Suppression isn’t motion. (see #2)
  6. Celebrate your acutes! Acute disease is a vent of the deeper state. This is one fact the rest of the world just doesn’t get. Colds, viruses, childhood illnesses even the flu are all mechanisms to exercise the immune system and allow a discharge. This is an effective way to purge toxins, waste, and unneeded energetic ju-ju. It resets the system and promotes developmental surges. Who doesn’t love a developmental surge?
  7. Remember it is all a perspective. Everyone views reality through the lens of their internal state. This is a biggie. This explains why some people are aggressive, some are wallflowers, some are nomads, and a thousand other variations. This is a good thing but becomes problematic when we judge others through our own lens. Life is easier when you can shrug and say “It’s just their state.”
  8. Live by the golden rule: Like Cures Like. This one has depth and breadth you can barely fathom. It’s one of the main tenants of homeopathic theory. When you apply “like” there is no resistance. Try telling a toddler (or a teenager) they have to do something. You’ll get schooled in “resistance.” Try understanding what they are thinking and feeling and it opens up the channels of energetic exchange.  (see #4)

 

Be a homie. Use the tips in this blog to start thinking Homeopathically.

My homeopathically trained buddies are on the same wave length and we save so much time. These eight facts help us to cut through the chatter and keep our blood pressure down nicely. You can make life easier for yourself, too. Think like a homie!

 

 

 

 

The Flu Shot in Pregnancy

By | Homeopathy, Immunization

I was recently interviewed by Courtney Ingham, a doula and childbirth educator at Sacred Blessing Services. We discussed issues associated with the flu shot specifically during pregnancy. I get a lot of questions from concerned pregnant mothers regarding their doctor’s advisement of getting the flu shot. I was happy to talk to Courtney about many of these concerns and share with her studies that dispel the myths regarding the safety of the flu shot in pregnancy.

Check out my recent interview with childbirth ed instructor, Courtney Ingham, by clicking this picture.

Some of the other topics we addressed were:

-Chronic inflammatory issues in children
-How to help move your child out of an inflammatory response
-Studies regarding miscarriage associated with the flu vaccine
-Risks associated with getting the flu while pregnant
-What symptoms of the flu you want to mitigate during pregnancy and how to do that with homeopathy
-What your doctor may not be telling you about the flu and how it can be spread
-My homeopathic recommendations for avoiding the flu

Interview with Learn True Health: How to Naturally Avoid the Flu

By | Homeopathy, Immunization

Cilla was recently interviewed by Ashley James of Learn True Health to discuss what to do if one should get the flu. If you are interested in hearing this interview, you can access it on the Learn True Health site or You Tube.

Here are some of the topics discussed:  

Should you get the flu shot?

There are many issues with the flu shot, including the low odds of effectiveness. Cilla goes on to discuss how the flu shot detrimentally affects the immune system, with specific regard to how it compromises the innate arm of our immunity. She also goes more into depth on the inflammatory response associated with immunizations. 

What can families do to prevent the flu?

Cilla recommends the use of homeoprophylaxis which builds the immune system. The remedy she recommends is Influenzinum. She references how one can take this remedy in the interview.

Cilla Whatcot’s solution is Homeoprophylaxis: “Homeoprophylaxis is the use of diluted disease products to familiarize the system with the disease, prior to encountering it in nature, so that when you do encounter it in nature, you can either mount an immune response, or you can repel the disease completely.”

What to do if you get the flu? 

Cilla shares many ideas and resources, most of which you will find here. There are many great homeopathic remedies for the flu that families can learn. Cilla has some great courses that address using homeopathy and cell salts for illness and the flu that are important to note. She also has a free knowledge vault that anyone can access. The vault offers an assortment of documents and videos to help people on their journey to health and wellness through homeopathy.
