Preventing Illness with Other Illness

We are in the midst of a Pertussis outbreak in the US.

My family has not been untouched by this illness, which is also called Whooping Cough, but this is not a surprise.

My youngest son got it in school and the rest of us from him.  Usually you think you merely have a cold with a cough when you first get it.  By the time you figure it out, you are not contagious anymore.  OOPS!  Amazing how nature created this little bug to perpetuate itself by having humans think it is a common cold until it is “too late”.

Homeopathy helps.  So does acupuncture.  There are many options.

The Pertussis vaccine is frankly, pretty “puny”, as one MD blogger described it.  It doesn’t give you lifelong immunity.  You are lucky if you get 8 years out of it.

As I look online to figure out the lifelong immunity questions, I am finding that most so-called experts are suggesting that even suffering through a case of Pertussis will not confer lifelong immunity.  I have no evidence to suggest the following is true, but it is something to think about.

There is a belief by many that the reason so many people are developing Shingles (which is caused by a reactivation of the Chicken Pox virus) is because parents and grandparents are not being re-exposed to the virus by their children and grandchildren when the youngsters get Chicken pox, because the vaccine is reducing the number of wild cases.  And just a side note for those of you who are looking for other children with Chicken Pox, your child can also get exposed to the virus by associating with someone who has Shingles.

(If you are reading this thinking you are going to post a comment on how awful it is to intentionally expose a child to a virus, do not bother to comment.  You’ll never convince me otherwise and I won’t post your comment. Besides, aren’t you also exposing them to a virus with a vaccine?  Make that a virus and a bunch of toxic chemicals….)  The re-exposure to the virus asymptomatically reactivates the immune system towards that virus and Shingles has less of a chance to rear its ugly head.  Dr. Mercola refers to Shingles as the Evil Cousin of Chicken Pox. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/11/02/chicken-pox-vaccine-creates-shingles-epidemic.aspx

I am starting to wonder if Pertussis used to be a lifelong immunity, but with the vaccine, no longer is lifelong, in the same way that not being exposed to the Chicken Pox is causing problems later in life as well.  Perhaps being exposed to a child or grandchild with Pertussis reactivates the immunity as well.

Homeopathy to the rescue, once again.

Since the early 1800’s, Homeopathy has been used to prevent disease.  Homeopathy is basically introducing an artificial disease, although it is energetic, rather than material.  So just as exposing an adult to the wild Chicken Pox virus or possibly the wild Whooping Cough bacteria can help prevent symptoms of the disease from manifesting, this can also be done with a homeopathic dose of the virus.

If you already have the Chicken Pox, Shingles or Whooping Cough, homeopathy can be extremely helpful.  Please call for remedy suggestions (there are many, so it is hard to put them in a blog).

If you wish to prevent future Shingles, a few homeopathic doses of Zoster in two different potencies has been shown to prevent Chicken Pox and presumably, reactivate the virus to prevent Shingles.  Of course, Stress is a huge factor in the appearance of Shingles, so homeopathy can help with that as well. Now would be a good time to re-expose yourself to the Varicella Zoster virus energetically, rather than risk the Shingles “vaccine” and its toxic ingredients at your local Walgreen’s.  BTW, the Varicella Zoster virus in the Shingles vaccine is sourced from a child with a naturally occurring case of chicken pox.  Good thing the Chicken Pox vaccine is so lame and there are enough “refusers” that Merck can make money off these children.

The same is true of Whooping Cough.  The Pertussis bacteria is included in any tetanus shot you get these days.  I know of no one who has ever had both Pertussis and Tetanus at the same time, so I am not sure the logic behind including them together.  Nonetheless, a homeopathic exposure to Pertussis has been shown in studies to create an immunity to Whooping Cough and has been doing so for at least 100 years.

Let me know if I can help.

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.
