School Starts and all that goes with it….

by | Aug 26, 2011 | Homeopathy, Seasonal, Uncategorized

The start of school is upon us.  Perhaps your children have already started.  In Minnesota, public schools aren’t allowed to start before labor day.  The State Fair is a big part of the economy of Minnesota and a large source of jobs for teenagers.

But once they have started, the wiggles and squirms, which are largely unnoticeable during an active, fun-filled summer, begin to show again.  If your child has a difficult time paying attention, you may get a conversation with his or her teacher and the school psychologist asking you to get your child evaluated.

The last thing most parents want is to put their child on drugs.  But somehow, the doctors have been trained to make it seem so normal, so innocuous. “It makes changes in the brain,” you may hear.  Yes, it does, but are they good?  I don’t need to go through all the dangers.  You can just Google side-effects of ADD/ADHD drugs and find many pages of them.  Some include weight loss, numbing of feelings, etc.

Homeopathy has many possible options for helping with the wiggles, daydreams, tornadoes left on ones wake, etc.

I recently ordered a new book on homeopathic remedies from Butterflies.  These turn out to be great remedies for ADD/ADHD.  Why wouldn’t they be, the way butterflies flit around from place to place.  For example one of the remedies discussed in the book is ACHERONTIA ATROPOS, The Death’s Head Hawkmoth.  It has the symptoms of being abandoned, having a love for honey and sensitivity to bees and bee stings, eczema and/or urticaria, a fear of suffocation and restless children who love pirate stories.

There are hundreds of other remedies which display restlessness.  Please go our website to read a further description of the homeopathic view of ADD/ADHD and some possible options.  Keep in mind that there are literally HUNDREDS of homeopathic remedies that can help with difficulty on concentrating and restlessness.  This is not something you can figure out on your own.


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.
