Word of the Year for 2023!

by | Jan 12, 2023 | Word of the Year

What is Your Word of the Year for 2023?

Each year, for the past several years, I have come up with a Word of the Year! This word is one I can focus on to help change my life in significant ways. Sometimes I have a phrase of the year.

Last year, my word of the year was HEAL. Although I didn’t write a blog post about it as I have in previous years, it was a successful word for me.

Choosing that word has some very obvious associations for me, as a natural health practitioner and homeopath. But we all need to do our own healing, and I especially wanted to focus on that. Not long after choosing that word, I took a class which prompted me to take a remedy that healed some dis-ease I had been carrying with me since I was 12 years old.  I will write a blog post about that sometime soon.

Previous Words of the Year included a phrase, “Just See It” and the word “Impact”.  In 2021, another word, that was business and personal related as well. Click here to see what it was. Those blog posts also offer suggestions on how to settle on a Word of the Year, which you might find helpful.

At last, my Word of the Year for 2023:


Drumroll please….


It took me awhile to come up with my word for 2023.  Because it has some obvious relationships, I think it is a good choice. It feels right! Here’s why.

First of all, like all of us, I am not getting younger. The need and desire to feel more energy has become front and center for me. Increasing my feeling of being energetic will be accomplished by a number of actions.  I am finding podcasts that energize me, supplements, homeopathic remedies (of course), exercise, diet, and much more. But I also want to feel energetic mentally.  The same things can help that.

Second, Homeopathy is energetic medicine.  The potentizing process brings out the energy and the essence of the substance used to make the remedy.

Finally, there is one of my favorite quotes from Nikolai Tesla:

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of Energy, Frequency and Vibration.”  He is talking about homeopathy here, even if he didn’t know he was.

What word did you choose?



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.
