GO AWAY Intrusive Negative Thoughts!!!

by | May 9, 2019 | CPTSD, Intrusive thoughts, Negative Thoughts, PTSD

Doesn’t it just irritate you when you can’t get negative thoughts out of your head?


One of the most common mental/emotional symptoms of PTSD and CPTSD is Intrusive Negative Thoughts.  This simply means that you have negative thoughts that creep into your mind about yourself and your abilities.  This is an expression of your lack of self-confidence.  This could come on from a true failure or it could have come on from a parent or a teacher or a boss who told you that weren’t good enough.

The thoughts could also be something that scares you.  These thoughts could have come from a dangerous situation, which is often a cause of PTSD as well.

What is a Person To Do About These Intrusive, Negative Thoughts?

What do these thoughts do?  They:

  • Crowd around in your brain
  • Prevent you from thinking positively about yourself and your situation
  • Scare you

The standard way to deal with these is to go to a therapist or a counselor and learn some skills that will enable you to banish those intrusive, negative thoughts.

You might take EMDR training from a therapist, which can take quite a while to get to the point where you aren’t having those intrusive, negative thoughts anymore.

What we really want to do is not have to spend so much time and energy managing your thoughts.

Bonus Outcome!

I recall a client whose biggest complaint was anxiety.  She wanted to follow the rules and was anxious if she didn’t.

I gave her a remedy that changed the way she felt about having to follow the rules.  The result was that her anxiety was far less than it had been.  She commented that she had so much time on her hands.  She hadn’t realized how much time worrying about things was taking up.  She had a couple free hours every day and didn’t know what to do with them.

That was an amazing expression of the healing power of a well chosen homeopathic remedy.

Getting to the bottom of your anxiety or your thoughts is the goal of homeopathy, rather than having to manage your symptoms.  Who wouldn’t want more time?

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.
