5 Helpful Homeopathic Remedies You Should Have On Hand!

New Year, New Remedies  

As most of you know, I recommend remedy kits for my clients and others to have on hand in case someone gets sick. But, as one can expect, the second time you need a remedy, it will be one that isn’t in the kit. Here are some Helpful Homeopathic Remedies you should consider having on hand.

My favorite kit I recommend is from Helios Homeopathy in London.  They have a Basic 36 kit that comes with a well-written booklet, for those 2 a.m. times when I don’t answer the phone.  Thirty-six remedies is a nice amount, but given that there are several thousand homeopathic remedies, and at least 100 remedies that are frequently helpful in acute situations, it truly is just a start.

The remedies recommended below are not in the Helios Basic 36 Kit.

Remedies You Should Acquire Early This Year

We are in the heart of acute illness and injury season in January, so try to get your hands on these as soon as possible.

  • Bellis Perennis—30c
  • Causticum—30c
  • Kali Carbonicum 30c
  • Phytolacca—30c
  • Sulphur—200c (not from Boiron)

The list could go on and on, but these are five very useful remedies that you are likely to use.

Pro Tips and Tricks for Using Your New Remedies

  • Bellis Perennis is made from the common daisy.  It is well known for helping old injuries, and also abdominal injuries or surgery. But for winter, it is especially helpful for injuries to the coccyx (tailbone).  With the temperatures going up and down in the winter, ice is likely to form.  If you fall on your bottom and injure your coccyx, take Bellis Perennis 30c 3x a day for 3-4 days to help heal the pain from the fall.
  • If I were stranded on a desert island and could only have a few remedies with me, Causticum 30c would be one of them. It is great for minor burns.  But in the winter, it is the first remedy I recommend for a tickly cough that is worse lying down and much improved by drinking cold water.
  • Too many people do not appreciate how awesome the Kali remedies are for coughs.  They are often deep coughs that wrack the body. Think of Kali Carb if the cough is almost completely gone while up and about and when you lie down, it reappears. If you have little ones running around, and the activity makes them cough, start with Kali Carb 30c.
  • Phytolacca 30c is a remedy that can be used for mastitis, but in the winter, think of it for sore throats.  Because Phytolacca is made from a plant called Poke Root, the pain is very much about being poked or stuck with something.  One of the unusual symptoms of Phytolacca as it relates to sore throats is that it is both aggravated and ameliorated by both warm drinks and cold drinks.  So if you can’t pin it down whether any type of drink helps or makes your sore throat worse, consider Phytolacca 30c.
  • Take Sulphur 200c when you are sick of being sick.  Any symptoms that come on at the end of a stale old cold likely call for Sulphur. The 200c potency is especially helpful because it gives an extra push for something that has settled into the body.  As always with Sulphur, you would want to see the person seeming to be a little warmer than usual, maybe some funky odors and perhaps the hair is a little greasier than normal.  The cough is almost always worse when you are laying down, trying to fall asleep.

I remember giving Sulphur 200c to a family member who had a cough that would just not go away.  He tried to go to the doctor, but couldn’t get an appointment for a few weeks.  Two rounds of Sulphur 200c took that cough away.

Take one dose a day for 3 days, 24 hours apart of Sulphur 200c to get rid of the old cold that is hanging around.

Meet Kathryn Berg the Classical Homeopath at Lotus Homeopathy, Inc.


Some of you know me, others of you may have heard of me. And for most, you probably have no clue about me or my business. So I wanted to take a few minutes to introduce myself, my family, my business, why I am a homeopath and how I became a homeopath—not necessarily in that order.

Like many people, I found out about homeopathy accidentally. I fell down while walking my Akita pup on an icy sidewalk on a typical Minnesota winter day. I was scheduled to go to a friend’s house later that day, so when I did, I asked her for some ice. You need some Arnica, she told me. Arnica? What’s that? She explained that Arnica is a homeopathic remedy for trauma.

At the time, the only place to get homeopathic remedies was a book and herb store in South Minneapolis. So I went there to get some. When I got there, I decided I should read some books so I actually knew what I was doing. I left with the Arnica 30c and three books. By the time I got done reading them, I knew I wanted to be a homeopath.

It was only several years later that I realized that I was attracted to homeopathy as a profession because I am a problem solver. It is what drives me. There is nothing like a well chosen homeopathic remedy to solve problems.

At the time I decided to become a homeopath, there wasn’t even a school here in in Minnesota. But eventually, my homeopath and his business partner started the Northwestern Academy of Homeopathy. I was a graduate of the third class. At the time I went there, it was a part time program taking three and a half years! Since then I have studied with numerous other well known and respected homeopaths in continuing education studies.

While I do work with all sorts of folks with a variety of conditions, I really have studied how to treat people suffering from PTSD, health issues related to aging women, and children’s health issues of all sorts, including autism. I have also been successful in removing blockages to healing due to suppression of symptoms by western medicine. I chose those specialties because people really suffer who have those forms of dis-ease, and Western Medicine doesn’t seem to have much of a solution for them.

After over twenty years of practice, I still get excited for clients when a remedy has helped them heal.

So that is about my business. Now, a little bit about me.

I have two adult sons in their early twenties, so I have shed the title of “Soccer mom”. My husband and I are empty nesters living in Woodbury, MN. For fun, I like to play piano, sing, sew, garden, hike, and travel. I am in a community choir. I also enjoy cooking healthy meals and, out of necessity, am an expert at cooking for special diets.
