Why I Don’t Reveal Remedies in Success Stories

by | Sep 26, 2019 | How Does Homeopathy Work?, Uncategorized

When Success Stories are shared on my Lotus Homeopathy Facebook page or in Groups or a blog post or even in an email, I don’t often share the remedies that were helpful.

It is always the First Question asked. Which remedy was it?

The short answer to Why I rarely reveal remedies is this:

In Homeopathy, Diagnosis Does Not Equal Prescription.

As much as people might try to use homeopathy that way, it simply doesn’t work that way.  If I told you a remedy that worked for someone and you decided to take it and it didn’t work, then you are more likely to think that homeopathy doesn’t work.


If it does have an impact, what if it aggravates your symptoms and you return to your old state without an improvement?  Aggravation with no amelioration is NOT the goal of homeopathy.  You are more likely to think that homeopathy doesn’t work.

It is also important to note that there are some very personal details of people’s lives that get revealed in an interview.  When I report the success, I am not revealing the background reason I chose the remedy.  And I don’t feel like I can do that. It’s too personal. That’s not what I get permission to do.

What Would Samuel Hahnemann Do?

Guess who else didn’t share which remedy healed which diagnosis?  That’s right, Dr. Hahnemann, the founder and developer of the principals of homeopathy.

In his writing it only shows up twice, according to a renowned homeopath, with whom I recently had the opportunity to study.

Why?  Because he knew that people would try to treat the disease instead of the person.  In homeopathy, we treat the person, not the disease.

Choosing A Remedy Is Hard Work

There is a lot of background and behind the scenes work that goes into choosing a remedy.  It’s what I went to homeopathy school to learn how to do and what I continue to learn about in other courses I have taken in the years since graduating.

So if you are looking to solve a health problem seeing a homeopath is the best option.  Is it possible that a remedy that you read about in a brief Facebook post is the one for you?  Sure.

But, given the sheer number of remedies for certain symptoms, it is more likely than not that it will be the WRONG remedy.

So as much as you would like to know, it is quite meaningless, because you don’t know the background story.  And taking the wrong remedy won’t help you or homeopathy.

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.
