Two More Remedies to Assure Continued Beach Fun

by | Oct 21, 2011 | Silica

As I was walking along the beach this morning, I thought of two remedies that would be important to have along on your vacation, especially if you are going to play on the beach or go barefoot.

Staphysagria is first.  It is normally thought of as a constitutional remedy for suppressed anger.  But it has specific uses for cuts.  If someone has surgery and there is pain located on the incision itself, Staphysagria will take care of that in short order.  As I saw some sharp shell fragments on the beach, I thought that it would be easy to cut one’s foot.  I would take Arnica first, but if the cut itself is painful, take Staphysagria.  It is different than a puncture wound, so it would require a different remedy.

Silica is a remedy made from sand.  Kind of ironic that it is a good beach remedy.  One of the really cool things Silica does is to expel foreign objects from under the skin.  I remember one day my son got a sliver under his nail before school.  I have no idea what he was doing that he managed to pull that off so early in the morning. It was painful and I couldn’t get to it with a tweezer.  I sent him to school after giving him a dose of Silica.  I told him that if it wasn’t better by lunch he should go to the nurse’s office and I would come over with another dose.

I didn’t hear from him.  After school I asked him about it.  His response was, “I don’t know when it came out, but by lunch, it was gone.”  YAY!  I would use a 30C or a 30x.

Just a cautionary note, Silica will also push out things you may need in your body, so ignore this if you have screws in a bone or something like that.





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.
