Worldwide COVID Rates
Ever wonder why COVID rates in other countries are so much less than ours? Have a look at the population and the size of India. Why do they have so few cases of COVID? Have a look at Cuba and their COVID rates are only around 1400. You can view this information on the following website, by checking for countries. View more.
What they have in common is homeopathic remedies. India has been using a common homeopathic called arsenicum album. Cuba has a formula called Pregveng-Ho that is a homeopathic combination that they have given to their population at risk. The Cuban formula encompasses the homeopathic remedy, so one would not take both.

Spring Time Rejuvenation
The Ontario government has potentially set a date for quarantine to be lifted at the end of May. I don't know about you, but I feel intially my reaction to this stress was focusing on what I could bake or what was being cooked up for dinner. It was a great time to have some wine whilst I was at it! We have one full month before we may get back to some routine. What better time to reign in our diets and do a cleanse? I am going to do the All Seasons organic herbal detox this month.
Ancient traditions and North American Indians have historically engaged in detoxification or purification rituals at every change of season to help improve the health of the body and mind. It is no wonder that this tradition lives on with many health conscious people due to its rejuvenating properties. Our society is exposed to more toxins in our environment than ever. In the past heavy metals were our main concern, now children are showing up with pesticides and plastic chemical compounds in their systems. Many of us just don't feel as well as we should.
Much research has found that environmental toxins are hazardous to our health. Each year 4 billion pounds of chemicals are released into our environment in the form of chemicals and pollutants from plastics, pesticides, heavy metals, and other sources. We are exposed to them in our water, air, soil, food and dust every day. Over time a build up of these toxins will affect the quality of our life in certain ways, such as in the symptoms listed below. Herein is a quick questionnaire to determine if you you need to detox. Do you have any of the following symptoms? Please answer yes or no.
Dark Circles under eyes
Ringing in ears
Use of aspirin and pain killers
Fibromyalgia symptoms or muscle aches
Use of birth control pills
Key: If you answered yes to any of the following you may need to detoxify your body for it to run at its peak efficiency.
There are ways to stimulate your body to clear out these toxins and help you feel energized and great while doing so. Typical organs of elimination are the liver, kidneys, intestinal tract, skin and lymph. Think of it as a spring cleaning for your body to get your system jazzed up and ready to work at its peak efficiency. Not all detox programs are healthy; your body needs key nutrients and support to release toxins, so water fasting or juicing is not the right way to go. Many people try and detox and do not support the different phases of detoxification and just allow toxins into the blood stream and feel worse than when they started.
We have two types of detoxes in the clinic. One is the “All Season Detox Kit”. It is an organic herbal formula that cleanses the bowels, lymph, liver and kidneys. It lasts for 20 days and recommends following a clean diet that is included. If you are sensitive to herbs, are worried about interactions with medications or conditions or simply want homeopathics, you may try the Pascoe Detox Kit. It lasts for two weeks and is very gentle. It supports drainage of the lymph, liver and kidneys. Both kits are available in the clinic.The kits are 10% off until May 10th, 2020 or while supplies last.
Pascoe Detox Kit, $32.05 (regularly $35.60)
All Seasons Detox Kit, $58.05 (regularly $64.50)

Warning Heartfelt and Personal Emotions to Follow!
For myself this has been a good time for reflection. It also has created some trepidation about what the future will look like. The clinic pace changed a lot. Typically I had 98% chronic cases and now its completely reversed to 98% acute viruses. I have called this the Pandemic of Opposites because every statement we are told, is followed up with a contradictory one.
I don't typically share my feelings about this with my clients but I decided I should be real. I sorely notice more than ever our media is geared towards pharmaceuticals. This industry has its clutches tight on the government and the media. We see that countries such as India and Cuba have used homeopathic treatments for prevention of COVID yet this news is rarely shared. The media is busy covering all of the deaths. Some people with the same photos, have died twice, at different ages in different states.
Homeopaths were asked to form a task force to treat Ontarians with COVID for free. It is a slap in the face. Doctors, nurses and other hospital support staff get paid. One of my colleagues and good friend, rightfully argued that most homeopaths make less than the poverty rate. The government took away all financial support for our regulatory body. This means the individual has to pay even more per person in order to keep our body afloat. Hospital staff earn a living wage and their efforts are recognized. If homeopaths have successful COVID cases, we have to share it amongst the homeopathic community. The internet will suppress our data and it will not go into any government file. It will never hit the mainstream media.
Homeopaths are not allowed to say we treat disease. We have to dance around the semantics. I have had people with positive COVID tests, who I treated naturally and they recovered quickly. As a homeopath, I can get into trouble just stating the truth. One sweet client recovered quickly from COVID and told the public health nurse about her recovery. When they recorded my clinic name, I got nervous because I cannot treat a disease. It is a tiresome cross to bear and I wish it would change. It is very hard to work with so many restrictions on what we can say we treat, what we can use and all of the unfounded false media attacks. At least with the media spinning so many altered COVID stories, they have not cooked up any nonsense about homeopathy lately.
When homeopaths were regulated in Ontario, I was proud. I thought it was a time for us to work together with other health professionals. Despite the cost of being a member, I was willing to do that to unify our profession. As a homeopath, even before regulation, we always had to be mindful so as to not comment on what was not within our scope of practice. If someone was on a drug from their doctor even though it was making them sick, we always had to do the right thing and send them back to their doctor. However, after two decades, the favour has seldom been returned despite us being a regulated health professional. People would not even have health concerns but their doctor would disparage natural medicine. My hopes were that we could work together. COVID has made me realize this is even less likely to happen and our lack of unity stems from higher up. I am fed up with bullshit policy and politics. I am fed up with the Pandemic of Opposites and the crap we put out that isn't true so we don't even know whats true, who or what to believe.
I decided for myself, I am happy to help my current clients who may be struggling financially and need help. You have supported my business and I would like to give back. I ask that people let me know, if you need my help. However, I do ask that you pay for remedies and use my clinic for them because I have to survive this pandemic too. Reach out through my website, www.carusohomeopathy.com or email us.
For those of you who have found your way to me, I want to say thank you. Without you I would not still be here. I really appreciate your faith in my service and natural medicine. I would also like to express my total gratitude that I have been able to work in this field for over 20 years whereas a lot of my colleagues have not been able to make it out of the gate despite having the skill and knowledge.
