Another Arnica Story

A well used tube of Arnica Montana 10M.

There are times when I feel like perhaps I extol the virtues of Arnica more than necessary.  Or perhaps, at the expense of the reputation of other homeopathic remedies.

However, I had another Arnica experience I feel compelled to share.  But it isn’t just an Arnica story.  It is a personal homeopathy story, which begins with Arnica.

I recently had a minor surgery.  Something that couldn’t be healed with homeopathy.  Before agreeing to it, I made sure there was no other way.  I had a referral from my Holistic Doc who knew that I would be concerned about the quality of the surgery.

I took Arnica after the surgery.  This not only helped with the post surgical pain, but it also helped heal the trauma from the surgery.  Two weeks later was the follow up appointment, just to make sure all was going as it should.

The appointment started out with the post surgical nurse taking my vitals.  I was informed that mine were the best vitals she would see all day. She knew this at 9:30 a.m.  Thank you homeopathy, chiropractic and a healthy diet.  She asked about pain, the recovery process, etc.  I explained that I had used only homeopathy and a few doses of Tylenol to manage the pain as the healing progressed.  The prescription for narcotics went unused and got torn up and thrown into the waste basket.  I read the doctor’s post surgery report.  “The patient handled the procedure very well,” the doctor had dictated.

When the nurse inspected the incision to see how it was healing, she commented that I didn’t even have a scab.  This was unusual.  I told her it was the Arnica.  I explained the background of Arnica, which she found fascinating.  Eventually she took my business card and was very excited.  “I’m going to tell the other nurses about this.  We are all so into natural things.”  A clinic full of surgeons is the perfect place to share Arnica.

This is a common outcome for Arnica, if not a common response.  But the more we share our homeopathy stories, the more people will want to learn more and become healthier.  By the time I left the brief appointment, the nurse knew that I wasn’t on any medications, that my vitals were good because of the choices I made in my health care.  I wasn’t just lucky nor did I just have good genes.  In the end, it saves me money to choose natural modalities like homeopathy and chiropractic and good diet, even though it may seem like it cost more to begin with.

If you have a homeopathy story, share it with me in the comment section!

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.
