More on Ketamine for PTSD: Was It Approved Suspiciously?

by | Jun 19, 2019 | PTSD

SInce my last post on Ketamine for PTSD, some more information has come out.  It is important to share it. The approval is suspicious, which adds to making homeopathy better than Ketamine for PTSD.

It seems that the outcomes of three studies on the safety and effectiveness of Ketamine for PTSD are questionable.  Two of the three studies did not show positive outcomes and showed increased suicidal tendencies.

In approving this drug, the FDA abandoned it’s decades long guideline that a drug must have two successful trials before it is approved.  Their explanation?  “It’s not unreasonable.”  Hmmm.  I could never get by with that explanation of homeopathy that way.

Here Are Some More Questionable Outcomes

  • The trials did not show that the drug was effective on those over 65 (52% of the VA’s patients) or possibly even not effective on males (90% of the VA’s patients).
  • Six people died during the trials compared to Zero deaths by the placebo.  Three were suicides.  The drug is supposed to be taking that suicide number the opposite direction.
  • People cannot drive for 24 hours after getting the infusion due to sleepiness, blood pressure increases, hallucinations, etc.  (Please see my previous article for more side effects.)
  • Influence by POTUS seems to have sped up the process of approving this for use in VA hospitals and clinics.

Please read the entire article from which this summary came to learn more.  Given how suspicious it all sounds, I think you will decide to stay away from Ketamine.  Homeopathy is better than Ketamine for PTSD. Use homeopathy instead.

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.
