Homeopathy Can Help Post-Covid Grief

by | Jan 3, 2023 | Aurum, Grief, Ignatia, Natrum Muriaticum, Staphysagria

Now that schools are seemingly having classes in person and employees get the option of going back to work, for the most part, everything is back to normal. Right? Not so fast. A lot of people are still suffering from the losses they experienced during the lock downs and after we were able to show our faces. These losses could be human lives, jobs, friendships, etc. Homeopathy can help post-CoVid grief.

Many Americans are grieving the way things used to be.

Sadly, many are also grieving the loss of friends because they had different viewpoints about CoVid and/or politics. It used to be okay to disagree.  Now it’s not.

How many of you have family members whose High School Graduation was virtual? Zoom graduation?  It isn’t even close to the same thing.

What Is Grief?

According to the Mayo Clinic, Grief is a strong emotion which can overwhelm people who are experiencing a sense of loss.  This sadness can be the loss of a loved one, or it can be the loss of how life used to be.

For example, you could be going through boxes of old memorabilia and feel a sense of grief over something that you wish was still the same way it used to be.  This could also be plain old nostalgia which is called Homesickness in Homeopathy.

Homeopathy can help post-Covid grief. Interestingly, when I use my repertory of symptoms and the remedies that are known to heal those symptoms, Nostalgia and Grief overlap a great deal.

Remedies To Try

There are some common remedies that can help post Covid grief that anyone who knows a little about homeopathy would come up with.

Ignatia—The flagship grief remedy.  You may find that you have a lump in your throat when you think about the subject of your grief.  You may be weeping.

Natrum Muriaticum—old, very pent-up grief.  Probably not crying, but definitely feeling irritable.  You may also not have any feelings at all about it because you have managed to suppress all feelings related to it.

Aurum Metallicum—People who need Aurum will feel responsible somehow for that situation about which they are experiencing grief.  I should have insisted they go to the doctor.  I should not have gone along with the suggestion.

Anger Suppressed

Staphysagria—Grief accompanied by anger or rage.  Someone needing Staphysagria could also look like he or she needs Natrum Muriaticum due to the ability of the patient to suppress emotions readily.

What If These Do Not Help?

Sometimes a remedy that is close will help, but the improvement doesn’t hold.  In that case, you should contact Lotus Homeopathy for help.  There are at least 75 remedy possibilities that cover both Homesickness (I wish things were the way they used to be) and Grief.

Most importantly, however, is to recognize that life does present us with changes all the time.  I have a friend who posted some pictures on Facebook of a reunion of 10 people who all started working for the same company at the same time.  Thirty years later, they are all still friends.  Will workplaces ever be that way again?  Is there some other way to develop friendships at work when most people have hybrid work situations?

There is much to grieve.  Homeopathy can help Post CoVid Grief.


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.
