What Remedy Does Adele Need?

Adele

This morning I read that British singing sensation Adele has cancelled her US tour because, once again, she has laryngitis.  The bluesy singer twice postponed her appearance here in Minnesota but was finally able to give a concert which received good reviews.  I also read that her vocal chords were hemorrhaging.  Yikes!

That is such an interesting symptom, I just had to look it up.  Much to my dismay, there were only a couple small remedies listed and it was in related symptoms.  There is not a symptom of the Larynx bleeding.

So where do we start if we can’t find her most peculiar symptom?  First, related to her most recent cancellation, she said, “Singing is literally my life. It’s my hobby, my love, my freedom and now my job.”

A couple months ago I read an article about her in Rolling Stone magazine. The gist of the article, as it relates to homeopathy, is that she has performance anxiety, aka stage fright, so much so that she will throw up at times from anxiety. “I have anxiety attacks a lot,” she reported. She has a  foul mouth, dropping the F-Bomb and tells filthy jokes on stage. I do not know her motivation for that, but given she is a performer, I would think about the drama of it and the impact it has on others. Perhaps she likes to shock others.  The other important thing to know about Adele when trying to determine a remedy for her is that she is a smoker. This always creates additional problems.  She needs to quit.

Because of her strong feelings about music and singing, we need to first look at remedies that come from the 5th row of the periodic table.  These are the artists, musicians, athletes, attorneys–people who perform. There are 70 or so stage fright remedies, and a few from row 5.

I would also include Inflammation of the Larynx from over use.

So putting the following together, an artist/musician, anxiety attacks, stage fright, cursing, and laryngitis from overuse of her voice, the remedy that comes up first is Argentum Nitricum, which is Silver Nitrate.  It is a very well known remedy in homeopathy and pretty common for musicians and people who have stage fright and fear of heights (don’t know that she talked about that).   It also suits her body type, which is a bit on the plump side from enjoying fine food and wine, to which she also confesses. It also has an affinity for the throat.

Because Argentum Nitricum does not cover the cursing, I would not be completely comfortable with that remedy.  Another possibility for Adele is the remedy Antimonium Crudum.  Also in the 5th row of the periodic table, they can be very romantic (which she is) and wear romantic clothing.  She also has romantic relationship issues (the Sulphur in this remedy) and likes to be shocking.  The shocking could also appear as a punk rocker, such as Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day.  If you have been to a concert, you would know that shocking is definitely part of his persona.  Contrary, shocking, very talented.

Fortunately for Adele, she comes from Great Britain, where homeopathy is popular and thriving.  Hopefully she will go back to her British roots and see a classical homeopath at home.

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.
