Top Ten Natural Care Products To Keep In Your Medicine Kit and Travel Bag–Part 1

by | Jan 8, 2015 | Apis, Arsenicum, Top Ten Remedies

Many years ago I used to teach a class on this topic, because people used to ask what remedies I would recommend that people have over all others.  A big task given there are thousands of remedies.  Over the years, I have moved on from this topic.  But recently I was reminded of it via a post on a Facebook Group.  The final list, which has evolved over the years, has more than 10.  However, Top Ten still sounds best!

This list appears in alphabetical order.

1.    Apis 30C

Apis is a homeopathic dose of bees.  If you have any allergies and you have a sudden reaction to the allergen, Apis is a good remedy to have around.  Take a 30C dose once every 5 minutes after symptoms start to appear.  If you establish a relationship with a homeopath, 200C would be a better dose to have handy.  Carbolic Acid is another option.

2.    Arnica Montana 30C and 200C

Okay.  How many of you saw this remedy coming?

Arnica Montana for Trauma

Arnica Montana for Trauma

Arnica Montana is probably the most popular and well-known homeopathic remedy.  More people have been convinced of the importance and usefulness of homeopathy by a few doses of Arnica than any other remedy.  That includes the homeopath at Lotus Homeopathy.  It is a premiere remedy for the effects of Trauma.  This could range from a bruise from bumping your hand accidentally on the edge of the kitchen table while walking by to a major car accident or a brain concussion.

Arnica montana is a mountain daisy. It hardly seems that such an innocent looking plant could possess such power. It has been used in Folk Medicine as an herbal preparation for many hundreds of years.  Like most herbs, it has a doctrine of signatures which helped our ancestors recognize how it might be useful.  Healers of earlier centuries recognized its affinity for trauma when it was observed that mountain goats and sheep would eat the Arnica plant after fighting or after falling off the rocks.  And you could use Arnica Montana 30c (or stronger) after a fight or a fall even today.

3.     Arsenicum 30C

Arsenicum is the number one remedy for food poisoning.  Not everyone needs it, but the symptoms to watch for are sick to stomach, vomiting and REALLY chilly.  If you eat out a lot, this is a remedy to have around.  The person who needs it may be worse after midnight and be anxious and restless.  It is also a good remedy for Montezuma’s revenge, which may or may not be food poisoning.

That’s all for this post.  Stay tuned for more in a day or two.

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.
