What Do You Think Of…… ?

by | Oct 9, 2011 | Homeopathy and Families

As a practitioner of natural health, specifically homeopathy, I get a lot of question about what I think of various procedures, drugs, medications, etc.  Just a heads up, I have not written all of these yet, so if you have a question, please comment below and I will respond in a subsequent blog posting.

The first and most common question is, What Do You Think of Drugs, Pharmaceuticals, etc.?

They don’t get to the bottom of the problem.  It may appear at times that they do, but they really don’t.  Many years ago the explanation of headaches to a family member was that the brain chemistry was off.  I was pretty young then, but I still wondered why it was off.  Why not figure out why rather than just give something to balance the problem.  No one ever had an answer for me.  Turns out, there isn’t one from their viewpoint.  Homeopathy does get to the bottom of the problem.  For example, lets say that a 16 year old girl is home alone, doing her homework, when someone attempts to break into the house.  They aren’t successful, but she is frightened nonetheless.  For months, she is afraid to be alone.  She gradually gets a bit better, but is still nervous when home alone.  Over time, she develops a free floating anxiety problem and pretty soon she has developed Raynaud’s disease.  This is a disorder that is characterized by very cold hands.

If she goes to the doctor, they will give her some medications, Beta Blockers I believe, for the Raynaud’s.  She probably previously had started some anti-anxiety medications.

Had she gone to a homeopath when it first happened, she would have gotten over the idea that someone was going to break into her house.  Her fear of intruders would have dissipated and she likely would have not developed the Raynaud’s.  The remedy I would have chosen for her is Arsencium album.

Dis-ease, whether physical or mental, is characterized by living in the There and Then.  Even many years later, she is living AS IF there is an intruder about to break into her house.  Gradually she developed physical pathology to correspond to the mental/emotional state brought around by the intruder.  Health is living in the Here and Now.  We know that something that happened long ago is no longer occurring in our lives.  Homeopathy helps you get over the delusion of living in the past–the There and Then–and gets you into living in the present–the Here and Now.

Tomorrow–more thoughts on drugs to manage symptoms.





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.
