Side Effects of Drugs Causing Problems for Military and others with PTSD?

by | Jun 26, 2019 | Drug Side Effects, Homeopathic Detox, PTSD

Why do so many wartime vets (especially those from the Gulf War) with PTSD also have peripheral Neuropathy?
Cipro may be the culprit.

According to an article published in Military Times in 2013, there are many vets who were told to take Cipro for 60-90 days to prevent Anthrax. At the time they were told to do that, Cipro wasn’t approved for that purpose. But go ahead. Our brave men and women in uniform have been guinea pigs for vaccines all along. Why not the horrific Cipro? (Can you tell?  I’m a little jaded about all of this.)

Cipro belongs to a class of antibiotics called fluoroquinolones. They are very powerful and normally reserved for very serious bacterial infections.

But along with the power come far too many very serious side effects. They include: tendinitis, ruptured tendons (can be bilateral), arthralgia, myalgia, peripheral neuropathy and many central nervous system (CNS) effects (hallucinations, anxiety, depression, insomnia, severe headaches, confusion, psychotic reactions that have progressed to suicidal ideations/thoughts and self-injurious behavior such as attempted or completed suicide.).

Hmmm. Those CNS effects sound like PTSD.  Likely there are other drugs that cause similar side effects.

The problem with the peripheral neuropathy side effect is that it can be irreversible. In other words, permanent.  It is not clear if they have done research on the life span of the other side effects.

What Can Homeopathy Do?

If you served in Operation Desert Shield or Desert Storm, you took Cipro, and you suffer from any of these symptoms still, you could have a permanent imprint from the Cipro.

As a trained Homeopathic Detox Therapist, I have helped detox countless vaccines and other toxic medications from children and adults.

One detox case involved a four year old child who was diagnosed with autism and he couldn’t speak. His mother had been on Zofran, a medication to stop nausea and vomiting, all through the pregnancy. One of the side effects of the medication is “inability to speak.” One dose of the homeopathic detox remedy and he started talking.

Literally the next day.

For real.

So yes, Homeopathy can detox the side effects of the medications that have been taken. Even if it is supposedly permanent.

Even if you didn’t take Cipro, but had numerous, unnamed vaccines, you could still be suffering from the injuries from the toxins associated with the vaccines. After all, military personnel have long been test subjects for pharmaceutical companies. The need to clear the imprint of vaccines as an adjunct therapy to classical homeopathy is not unusual.

Now What?

If you were a Cipro user during Desert Shield or Desert Storm, and also have PTSD diagnosis, join our PTSD and Homeopathy study.  To find out more about this, join our Facebook Group, Healing PTSD Naturally.  If you aren’t on Facebook, use the form at the bottom of our Contact Us page to reach out and we will send you an application.

Or, if you used Cipro, have some of the side effects still, but don’t have PTSD, schedule an appointment to get started on detoxification using Homeopathic Detox Therapy.


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.
