Recovery from Antibiotic Overuse (which triggered allergies, asthma etc)
In a recent Science Daily article, researchers warn that, “The microbes living in a baby’s gut during its first month of life may directly impact [their] developing immune system, leading to a higher risk of allergies and asthma later in childhood” (1).
The research just keeps snowballing: Antibiotics? Problems. Steroid creams? More problems. Pesticides and GMO’s? You guessed it.
I applaud research on the effects of antibiotic overuse, which shows the critical importance of gut health. What about those of you who aren’t Marty McFly and cannot travel back in time for a ‘do-over’?
Are we doomed forever to feel badly that little Johnny has asthma and Susan has allergies, thanks to the antibiotics and gut damage we unknowingly participated in?
To make matters worse, if your child suffers from serious allergies, your life-saving ‘back-up plan’ has recently become more of a hardship to obtain due to the skyrocketing price of the EpiPen (2).
The irony here is that the pharmaceutical industry—which has made it very difficult and expensive for you to get emergency life-saving medicine, is responsible for having created the problem in the first place!
So it goes from bad to worse: Kind of like being stuck underneath an ever-growing snowball.
If I were you (and I once was), I would not want to be nose-to-nose with such distasteful options. I’d want to get out from underneath the pharmaceutical industry’s yellow snowball. And fast.
One of the most wonderful things about homeopathy is that it can give you freedom in a way you’ve only ever hoped for, but possibly never realized you could actually achieve. It allows you to turn back the clock – no flux capacitor-powered car needed.
If you or a loved one suffers from allergies, food intolerances, chemical sensitivities and more, I invite you to join me in an upcoming course entitled Allergic!?, where I will explain how to action effective homeopathic remedies for allergies in your own home.
The wonderful thing about the system of homeopathy that I practice is that I utilize Practical Protocols, which distill and simplify homeopathy; a system of medicine that has often been defined as a complex form of healing. Powerful, but complex.
And the best part about homeopathy and the Practical Protocols I teach?
They work. Even that niggly bit that seems to never quite disappear no matter what you might try.
But it is also my mission to share with you some easier protocols for free.
So let me introduce to you Carle (3). I was no different from Carle many years ago before I climbed out from underneath my own snowball of pharmaceutical drugs. Carle had dark circles under his eyes and terrible asthma. He had also developed ADHD, anxiety, and a bad temper. But his asthma was what was really bothering him, so the pediatrician had prescribed inhalers. Unfortunately, inhaler use is associated with negatively-affecting psychological function (4).
The fact that the inhalers could possibly be causing Carle’s behavior problems deeply concerned his mother. Had my course Allergic!? been released, she could have learned the protocols Carle needed herself. Since it was not available at the time, she scheduled a consult instead.
I agreed that the advent of the new diseases—the behavioral issues—was an exchange of illnesses. Carle had traded in bronchial spasms for behavioral problems and rage.
In cases like his, we look at some of the remedies that can help uproot the asthma. This would allow Carle to live free of inhalers. In turn, this would permit his behavior to balance out naturally.
While we would not use ALL of these remedies for Carle, below is the list of the top remedies we would choose from for someone who suffers from asthma and allergies:
- Kali carbonicum 200, every 7 days, for asthma in general
- If there is wheezing, Kali iodatum 6 twice daily can be employed as well
- When there is gagging involved, particularly from an extrinsic cause such as cat dander, I also like Ipecac 30 every 1-3 hours if very severe, and less frequently if not. This is also of great value to those who experience asthmatic coughing
- Lachesis 200, one dose every other day, is a great medicine to help uproot asthma, but it should not be taken along with Kali carbonicum

While you’re there, be sure to download the valuable treatment graphic on allergies, perfect for prominent placement on your refrigerator when you need it fast!
This graphic is a starting point, a go-to referral for which homeopathic remedies are available to uproot certain allergies. Learn it today, and use it tonight. That’s the promise I made to myself and family some 30 years ago and, the hope I give to my students. On that page you can also learn about participating in my free Q&A session where you can get your questions answered about allergies and, if interested, my new course.
Anyone who has suffered or continues to suffer from severe allergies knows they are not merely an inconvenience but a life-altering struggle. I know, because my own life used to revolve around them too. I also know it doesn’t have to be that way.
I would love the opportunity to teach all of you how to use and understand homeopathy and its endless benefits and how not to fall for the trap of snowballing prescription drug and antibiotics overuse.
