Bill Cosby Swears by Homeopathic Remedy
“His regimen to fight his cold includes Vitamin C … A secret ingredient to his recovery is Oscillococcinum. … his wife turned him on to alternative health when they moved to Los Angeles in the mid-1960s… But he says he’s trying to spread the gospel of Oscillococcinum.
“‘I’ve learned to pronounce Oscillococcinum because so many people don’t know anything about it,’ …
“‘If you call people and they say, ‘Oh, man, I’m coming down with…,’ you tell them ‘Go to the drug store and get that box. It’s the only medicine with a lot of S’s and a lot of C’s in the first word. …’
‘They call back. ‘Did you get it?’ ‘No, I haven’t gone yet.’ They’re wheezing and sneezing and (have a) headache. ‘Here, hang up the phone and go.’ And they still don’t go. Why? ‘Because I don’t know how to pronounce it.’ So it becomes very, very funny and you get frustrated because you know it’s going to work.’”

What is the Difference between Homeopathy vs. Herbs vs. Supplements
Let me pass on some healthy experience and advice for the holidays based on my 27 years experience as a healer ~
1.) Homeopathy uses little white pills that come in little blue plastic tubes. You put them into the bottle cap and then under the tongue. There are thousands of homeopathic remedies.
They are made from either plants, minerals, or parts of animals (like the venum of the snake, or mother’s milk.)
Homeopathy is very similar to vaccinations, or allergy shots. It uses a very, very, very tiny amount of the original substance to stimulate the body to heal itself.
There are never side effects with homeoapthy, but sometimes your old symptoms will temporarily come back the during the treatment. This is a sign you are on the right homeopathic treatment.
Many pharmacists and Medical professionals do not “believe” in homeopathy becuase it uses such a small dose.
But for anyone who has treated their dog, cat, or infant with homeopathy, you know it couldn’t be a placebo effect, because your pet or infant gets well so quick when you select the right homeopathic treatment.
2.) Herbs are similar to drugs except we use the whole plant to make the herbal tablet or capsule. By using the whole plant, there are no side effects. (The only exception to this is if you are also taking Western medications. Then we need to make sure there are no conflicts between the two.)
There are Chinese herbs and American herbs. Since I”m a Doctor of Chinese medicine, I use mostly Chinese herbs.
Chinese herbs are quality controlled here in the United States and are completely safe. The only side effect might be diarrhea from taking too many at the same time.
Chinese herbs are used to treat everything from hypertension, back pain, PMS, depression, panic attacks, insomnia, colds, flu, irritability, impatience, urinary infections, low sex drive, infertility, to enhance breast size and arthritis.
3.) Supplements include vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Everyone should be taking the right vitamins and minerals for their body type, age, and sex. I can help you determine the right vitamins and mineral to take based on your blood test or hair analysis.
Amino acids are capsules you take to enhance mood and improve brain function. We use them mostly for problems like low sex drive, ADD, ADHD, fatigue, memory, concentration, insomnia and hyperactivity.
My preference is to use all three, along with acupuncture. The people I have seen over the years who use herbs, homeopathy, supplements and acupuncture, and who also exercise and eat a healthy diet, are the happiest and most healthy.
Best of luck on your healing path.
