Homeopathy can help military folks recover who are suffering from combat related PTSD. The prognosis for a rapid recovery is good!

This morning I woke up to find it raining. We have a new puppy and I definitely did not feel like bringing him out into the rain and getting cold and wet.  Then it occurred to me that it was Veterans Day.  I thought about the horrible conditions that the brave men and women had to endure over all the wars that the USA has fought. A walk in the rain with my dog didn’t seem like such a bad thing. I am, in fact, pretty fortunate and very grateful.

What is Veterans Day?

According to History.com,

“Veterans Day is a U.S. legal holiday dedicated to American veterans of all wars, and Veterans Day 2021 occurs on Thursday, November 11. In 1918, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in World War I, then known as ‘the Great War.’”


Is PTSD a New Experience?

Back in the day of the WWI armistice, combat soldiers and others suffered from PTSD, but they didn’t talk about it. They ignored it. They stuffed it. But many of their wives (especially—but sometimes husbands) knew something was wrong, especially when the nightmares occurred.

Fortunately, today people talk about it and get treatment for it. Unfortunately, there is little that Western Medicine offers that eliminates it. There are ways to manage it, but eliminating it is not always possible with conventional treatment.

Homeopathy Can Help

Afghanistan Vet nightmares reduced dramatically after only 4 weeks on a homeopathic remedy.When someone is having a dream, it is a delusion that is occurring in your mind. In the case of PTSD, it is the delusion that the battle is happening at that moment. The threat of death is still with the person having the nightmare.

Homeopathy works on the level of delusions. In fact, there are over 3500 Delusion symptoms in the homeopathic repertory, which is a database of symptoms and the remedies that heal those symptoms. And even better, homeopathy does not make you relive the experience over and over again, as some of the other treatments do.

How Effective is Homeopathy for PTSD for Military Personnel?

Marine answered yes to 8 of 17 PTSD Questions. After homeopathy, answered yes to zero of 17 questions.In 2019, Lotus Homeopathy conducted a preliminary study of the effectiveness of homeopathy and PTSD and included current and former members of the armed forces. Every participant whose PTSD developed due to an active duty event or events recovered from their PTSD.  I am familiar with the group of remedies that help recover from Event based PTSD.

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.
