Spring Brings New Health Complaints

by | Feb 23, 2011 | Uncategorized

I remember when I was young, there was a boy in my class who got pneumonia several years in a row in the spring.  He’d always miss a week or more of school. 

Spring can bring on allergy symptoms.

Many years later, when I had my own children, one of them ended up getting Bronchitis and Pneumonia two years in a row in the spring.  By then I knew about homeopathy and knew enough to pay attention to the timing.  Was this a pattern developing? 

When I look in my homeopathic Repertory (a book of symptoms), I see that the symptom of Spring Aggravates has 52 remedies.  The remedy my young son needed at that time is listed among the 52. He has not had any Spring respiratory issues since taking that remedy several times over the course of a year. 

Also listed are several remedies made from various Snakes.  Since snakes tend to hibernate in the Winter, it isn’t a surprise that the Spring weather might cause health issues for people needing those remedies.  How would you feel after being awakened from a 3 month nap?

Spring is also a time of Allergies.  Homeopathy has much to offer to relieve Spring allergies and prevent them from coming back the next year. I personally used to have Spring allergies, Fall allergies and Cat allergies.  Now, some mild sneezing in spring and fall is all I experience.  I even stayed a couple days with a cousin who has a cat and was perfectly fine.

One very common remedy for acute allergies is Sabadilla.  The main symptom indicating this remedy is copious sneezing.  Another remedy to consider is Allium Cepa.  This is for a very watery, runny nose accompanied by sneezing.  There are many more.  If these symptoms match yours, take the remedy in a 30C as needed. 

Interestingly, if you have chronic allergies, the remedy you use this season, may not work next year at the same time.  A constitutional remedy can help you conquer your allergies.  Allergies are one of the most common ailments for which someone seeks homeopathic care.  So join the rest of the former allergy sufferers and get help for your self and your family.

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.
