PTSD & Homeopathy: CoVid-19

by | May 7, 2020 | Co-Vid 19, Corona Virus, PTSD, PTSD and CoVid 19

CoVid-19 has taken over.  It seems no one is immune to its consequences, even if we don’t actually develop symptoms from the novel corona virus and develop CoVid-19, as the resulting disease has been named.

PTSD has a direct relationship to CoVid-19.  The first relationship is that health care workers, who are trying their best to save lives, have developed PTSD.  I’m not sure whether even enough time has gone by to officially diagnose it as PTSD.  But there is definitely an impact on anyone who has done their level best to save patients and those patients die in spite of the best efforts put forth.

There could be a sense that they didn’t uphold their responsibility in their jobs. Many providers blame themselves for bad outcomes. It is unfortunate that homeopathic remedies aren’t made available for the practitioners to use, not only for their patients, but also for themselves.

I suspect that the remedies these medical practitioners will need for their PTSD are the same remedies needed for military officers who end up feeling responsible for the deaths of those under their charge. This is not a long term dis-ease that will take lots and lots of appointments and remedies to resolve.  There is also a potential relationship to First Responders and the remedies that would help them.

Wearing Masks

Being required to wear a mask could be a pretty big problem for someone whose PTSD is caused by a physical or sexual assault, or perhaps a mugging.  If someone put their hand over your mouth to keep you quiet, a mask would be a huge trigger.

I imagine that there are people who will think that they have over come the assault and their PTSD who will regress in their progress of overcoming PTSD.

Based on my research in the Homeopathy & PTSD study, this situation seems like it would require remedies similar to the ones needed for military personnel who endured life threatening attacks while serving our country.  There is also overlap with First Responders as well, interestingly.  The first responders are seeing people on the worst day of their lives.  An assault is the worst day of a victim’s life. So there is some possible similarities there.

What To Do?

If you feel completely overwhelmed by putting on a mask, please read this blog post.  There is probably a remedy for you in there. If not, please schedule an initial consult.  It may be time for you to begin working on your recovery from PTSD with homeopathy.

If you or a loved one, friend or neighbor, is feeling overwhelmed by working with CoVid 19 patients, you should also schedule an initial consult.  Homeopathy provides rapid healing for people in those situations.


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.
