The Top Ten Natural Care Products–Part 4

by | Jan 13, 2015 | first aid, homeopathy first aid

In this post, the Top Ten Natural Care Products will include useful tools in addition to homeopathy.  Specifically, the focus will be on burns.  But all of these items have many uses.

10.   Causticum 30C

In addition to healing burns, Causticum can help a certain type of cough.

In addition to healing burns, Causticum can help a certain type of cough.

Causticum is a homeopathic remedy that is made from a mix of minerals, including Potassium and Sulphur.  Take a 30C dose as soon as possible after a burn. This would be for burns such as accidentally touching a hot oven rack or a pan when cooking or baking.  It will also provides relief for burns to the inside of the mouth if you eat something that has not cooled sufficiently.  I remember a client calling me in a panic one day when her young son had done that. Causticum helped immediately.  It could also help sunburn, but see below for a better idea for sunburn.  The other items below are topical, so if you don’t want to put them in your mouth, Causticum is definitely the first choice.

Causticum can also help a tickly cough that is worse lying down and better from drinking cold water.

11.   Calendula Ointment or Cream

Calendula is widely used in a variety of personal care products.  It is really soothing for the skin.  But did you know it can help burns?  Spread it on the burn as soon as possible.  Repeat as necessary.  Calendula ointment or creme is widely available in health food stores, coops, even everyday grocery stores, such as Byerly’s locally in the Twin Cities of MN.  It was one of the first remedies I ever used when I became interested in homeopathy.  I had “burned” my lip on a spoonful of ice cream.  It was amazing.  I try to stay away from Calendula Gel as it can sting, whereas the Ointment or Creme is more soothing.

Calendula ointment is great for small rashes of unknown origin, and other itchy spots.  If you have chronic skin conditions, it is okay to use temporarily, but seek constitutional homeopathic care from a professional homeopath to help heal the problem.

12.  Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender is a great help for burns.

Lavender is a great help for burns.

Lavender is one of the few essential oils that are okay to apply directly to the skin.  Lavender is handy in a number of ways. If you are using a deodorant and it is an especially sweaty day, you may want to put some drops directly under your arms or on your feet.  You can also apply Lavender Essential Oil to a burn to help it heal faster and prevent blistering.  I would do this in combination with the Causticum, if topical use is indicated.

I hope this set of natural care products will find a home in your medicine chest.  Please read this past blog to learn more about treating burns with homeopathy.

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.
