Remedy of The Week #6

by | Jan 16, 2012 | Hip Pointer

This plant, when made into a homeopathic remedy, helps connective tissue.

These last couple weeks have been about dental work, for me and for some of my clients.  So this week’s remedy of the week has some unexpected dental use.  Those of you who have taken an acute care class I have taught didn’t learn about this feature of this remedy because I just learned it myself.

The Remedy of the Week is all about connective tissue.  This remedy is so important when it comes to ankle and wrist sprains, I can’t imagine practicing without it.  It is also very helpful for Ganglion cysts. Acute shin splints?  Take this remedy. It also happens to be a specific for injuries to the Illiac Crest (which I mentioned in an earlier post) which is also called a Hip Pointer–Christian Ponder, are you reading this??? This remedy could have saved the second half of the season for you.

Because it is a connective tissue remedy, it becomes important to know where you have connective tissues in your body (everywhere) and under what circumstances they might be injured.  Did you know that there is a peridontal ligament under your gums?  So if you have any dental work which involves pushing or manipulating on the gum, you may want to take a dose of this remedy. (Thanks to my colleague Betty Jo Arnet for this tip.  It really helped!)

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.
