My first use of homeopathy was a great success. I was taking study classes from a wonderful dedicated homeopath in Truro Nova Scotia about 12 years ago. One of the remedies we learned about was ruta grav, I took it before and immediately after some extensive dental work. I got a long great with the dental work but as a bonus my thumb which had bothered me for at least 7 to 8 years prior to taking the remedy healed completely. I had dropped a large stick of wood on it, and it would periodically get infected and painful, the nail bed was indented. After taking 3 doses or ruta 30 it has never become infected again and the nail is normal again. I became hooked on homeopathy and have used it to treat myself, family and pets.

Thanks for allowing me to share my story,

I first found out about homeopathy when I picked up The Natural Remedy Book for Women [Diane Stein] in 1993, however I didn’t really put it to the test until 13 years ago when our island community got an MD who recommended homeopathic remedies instead of pharmaceuticals…

It’s hard to choose which homeopathic success story to start with for this testimonial, so I might as well start with the first one that made me say, “homeopathy is truly magical”.

My venerable old dog, June, was experiencing urinary tract infections because she had become slightly incontinent. Determined not to give her anything harsh, I tried a variety of natural remedies without success. As luck would have it, Cantharis 30 came across my radar… “Hmmm, no harmful side effects, eh!? Excellent reputation for helping alleviate UTIs.

Easy to administer. Inexpensive. Let’s try it!” June simply blinked her ice blue eyes at me with a look of total trust. Such an angel, it was an honour to be her nurse for her final years. Cantharis worked like a charm after just 2 doses, and the infections never returned. Her quality of life greatly improved with the addition of homeopathic remedies to her health care regimen. She was really good about taking them, and seemed to enjoy them and the little song I would sing to her when I’d dole out the pellets on a spoon for her to lick. “Homeos for June ohhhhh homeos, homeos for June-ooooo…” A couple of other remedies that worked well for her were Rhus tox 30 for sore hips and Rescue Remedy for anxiety.
