Changing Lives with Homeopathy

by | Oct 7, 2011 | Help for violent children

One of the hardest things for a recovering alcoholic to do is go back to his family who haven’t changed and try to maintain his sobriety in the face of all the old behaviors that supported his old way of being.  Often the family doesn’t like or is uncomfortable with the new and improved version of their child or sibling.

What does all this have to do with Homeopathy?  I’m glad you asked.  When someone has behavioral issues, whether a child or adult, it affects the whole family.  But when those behaviors improve, the whole family can improve or experience some stress.  Homeopathy can help institute behavioral changes and it can help protect the new behavior changes as well.

I have a young client who had some physical issues, but the main reason his mother brought him to see me was because she was afraid he would hurt his older brother.  After trying a couple remedies, we settled on the remedy Hyoscyamus which is a member of the Solanaceae (Night Shade) family.  Many of the remedies in this family show violence as a way to cope with stress.  I later learned that a Hyoscyamus state can be induced in the exact situation of his birth story.  After being on this remedy for a couple of months, his mother reported there was no need to be hypervigilent about leaving the two boys together.  After a year, his remedy picture changed and he needed a new remedy.

Think about what a change that was for the entire family.  The older boy didn’t need to wonder when he was going to get struck by his brother and his mother could relax and stop worrying about the future of her son.  She even joked later that the criminal attorney/bail fund was now going to become a college fund.

With the holidays around the corner, it is time to think about changes you would like in your family, whether it is your immediate family or extended family.  Issues don’t come up during the holidays, they get exaggerated.  You can’t force your family to do homeopathy, but a good remedy can help you can change the way you react to them, which will cause less stress in the long run.





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.
