Top Ten Natural Care Products–Part 5

by | Jan 16, 2015 | Acute Illness

There are definitely more than 10 “can’t live without” Natural Care Products.

The list in this blog post is for times when you feel like you are coming down with something, or perhaps definitely came down with something. More often than not, I prefer to use homeopathy to help acute illnesses, but sometimes it is hard to get to a remedy, it is the middle of the night and you don’t know what to take or you don’t have the remedy on hand.

I would also add that going to a chiropractor when you are feeling you are getting sick is also on my must do list.  But it is hard to keep a chiropractor in your medicine cabinet….  Did you know your white blood cells become more active with each adjustment?

13.  Your Constitutional Remedy in a 30C

Your constitutional remedy is the remedy given to you by a professional classical homeopath to help heal your chronic

condition.  If you are feeling like you are coming down with something but don’t really have any specific symptoms, having your constitutional/chronic remedy in a 30C can be of great assistance.  You only know your constitutional remedy after having a series of appointments with a classical homeopath.  One of the nice things about a constitutional remedy is that you get sick less often.  But, nothing is perfect and people on homeopathy do get sick occasionally.  So a dose or two of your remedy in 30C for a couple of days may be the ticket to get you back on track.  If you don’t know your constitutional remedy, click here to schedule an appointment with a classical homeopath.  

14.  Zinc Lozenges

If you feel a sore throat coming on, and especially if you know strep is going around, reach for a Zinc Lozenge.  Zinc is bacteriostatic which means that it prevents bacteria from replicating.  It is a handy way to keep the bacteria at bay to give your body some time to kill off the bacteria that may be colonizing in the back of your throat.  You must suck on the lozenge.  Don’t chew it.  There are many brands and flavors of Zinc Lozenges, so read and follow the directions carefully.  It is possible to take too much zinc.  Know what is in your multi-vitamin.

There are also many sore throat remedies in the Homeopathic Materia Medica, so don’t stop there.  Call a Classical Homeopath to get additional help.  If sore throats or recurring strep are a problem for you click here to schedule an appointment with a classical homeopath to get a constitutional remedy.  

15.  Saccharomyces boulardii

Do you feel a bit of digestive distress coming on?  Perhaps you ate something that was a few days past its expiration date?

Or maybe you are traveling and you aren’t used to the local food and beverages?  Saccharomyces boulardii is a probiotic which helps rid the body of the little critters that may be inhabiting your GI tract.  It is available everywhere you can get vitamins and supplements.  It is extremely popular in the early part of the year as people are preparing to travel somewhere warm.  Take one capsule twice a day, weaning down to once a day until you feel you don’t need it anymore.  Of course, a good probiotic should be taken daily, and this one may appear in your daily probiotic.  Getting it as a single organism is great for those times when no matter how many times you wash your hands, you just can’t avoid the Norwalk virus.

A good homeopathic remedy, such as was described in Part one of this series, can also help and should be included in your get-well scheme.

For local folks, I have $5.00 off coupons for the Vitamin Shoppe if you wish to pick some of this up to have on hand. Call and then stop by.





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.
