General practitioner Dr. Chris Gilbert (Torrance, Calif.) has been using homeopathic medicines for years, both personally and professionally. Dr. Gilbert practices general medicine, homeopathy and acupuncture in the Los Angeles area. Her books, Dr. Chris’s A, B, C’s of Health: When Your Body Screams, Listen to It! and The French Stethoscope, are currently available at She recently shared with us some of her favorite medicines, including Oscillococcinum.

“I personally use homeopathy. My favorite [medicines] are Oscillococcinum, which I take at the first sign of flu-like symptoms, and Histaminum, since I tend to have hay fever," says Dr. Gilbert. "I have also used Gelsemium sempervirens a lot in my life to be less emotional before an exam. I took 5 pellets of Gelsemium sempervirens 12C or 30C the evening before each of my exams and 5 pellets the morning of. With this [medicine], I was much less emotional (I used to panic at exams), which helped me get excellent grades. Gelsemium is made from the plant yellow jasmine. It has no side effects or drug interactions.”

The homeopathic medicine Gelsemium sempervirens can relieve stage fright, nervousness or apprehension before an event.* If you would like more information on Gelsemium and other singles, click here.

I have used Oscillococcinum since 1991 and have informed my friends who also use it. I also have used Gelsemium sempervirens and was pleased with the results
