This may be the last blog I post.  That is, if the Mayans are correct, or our interpretation of their calendar is correct.

Homeopathy will certainly not stop the world from ending if it is indeed destined to do so.  But there are some remedies that do reflect a fear that the world is coming to an end in some way.  So I thought it would be fun and interesting to share some information about them, in light of the impending doom.

The first place to look in the homeopathic repertory is under a symptom called, Mind, Prophesying, Predicts the time of death.  The first remedy one thinks of in this situation is Aconite.  This remedy is a fairly common one and you can pick it up at your local Vitamin Shoppe or food coop or natural foods store.  The idea behind Aconite is not that you are going to die sometime soon.  The idea is that you are going to die in the next couple of seconds.  It is a useful remedy for children who are very fearful about medical procedures, for example.  Also, it helps those who have been in a car accident who can’t seem to shake the fear that the next car in the intersection is going to blast through the red light and kill them.  (I’m sure you all know what I am talking about.)  Aconite was given out a lot by homeopaths in New York after 9/11, and I’m sure those in Connecticut will also be recommending Aconite as well, after the recent tragedy there.

With not quite the same sense of urgency, but nearly so, we find Argentum Nitricum.  You may know this substance as Silver Nitrate.  Do you ever look over the edge of something high and get the willies?  If you feel that way because you are afraid you might jump, this is the general feeling of Argentum Nitricum.  They are a bit impulsive and they get that sensation in high places.  If they are in between large buildings, they are concerned the buildings may fall.  Bridges?  They might collapse.  It is also a good remedy for people with performance anxiety.

Cenchris contortrix is also known as the Copperhead Snake.  The feel they will die immediately as well.  Often it has to do with a violent death in this case, whereas Aconite is more about an illness or an accident.  The fear often comes on the night and the person who needs it wakes up screaming with her heart pounding.

Lac Defloratum is a remedy made from skimmed milk.  Skimmed milk is actually not good for you, but as a homeopathic remedy, it is amazing and with the right mental emotional picture, can help people get over their sensitivity to milk.  Like all milk remedies, the people who need it are care takers.  The women are very domesticated and for them, there is no other choice.  Sometimes it gets to the point where they are feeling hopeless about their situation.  She will suffocate and die alone in a convent.  (Words from the 1800’s.)  Modern day information would be a mother who is really torn between staying home with her children and feeling like she simply can’t do that anymore.  Or they get headaches so badly they wish they could die.  There is no fear of death. It is a more drawn out process, a bit of a living death.

There is also a symptom Mind, Death, Conviction of.  The people who need the remedies in this symptom are sure they will die, without assigning a time to their death.  So those who are fearful of the demise predicted by the Mayans would definitely not fall into this category.  As it turns out, there is almost no overlap with the remedies in the other symptoms.

I hope the Mayans are wrong and you are around to read my next blog post.  Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas!

All the best,

Kathryn

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.
