Yes, You Can Get Better

by | Aug 16, 2015 | Stress

It is really common to hear people talk about their illnesses.  It seems to be the topic du jour almost any place you go.  It often goes something like this:

  • It’s just old age.
  • I can’t do anything about it.
  • I have to live with it.
  • The medications don’t really help much.
  • My meds cost me $600 a month. (Homeopathy is MUCH cheaper than that!)

I was having a conversation about homeopathy with someone recently and he asked me if it bothered me that people could get so much better if they would just try something else.

The answer is yes, it does.  It not only bothers me, it breaks my heart.

It makes me want to shake people and say, “Listen!  It doesn’t have to be this way!”  (Not a particularly effective method.)

Sometimes people get diseases of old age because they don’t try anything different.  They won’t change their diet, they won’t try homeopathy or other natural healing modalities.  “If it worked, my doctor would know about it.”  Well, not really.  If they studied it, maybe.  Medical schools are funded by pharmaceutical companies, so no, they aren’t going to learn about homeopathy in medical schools.  And medical journals, well they are also funded by pharmaceutical companies, so research on homeopathy and naturopathy gets published in other types of journals.  Journals that doctors don’t read.

It makes me want to shake people and say, “The doctor isn’t the final word on whether something works or not.”  If they don’t read the journals, how would they know about the research?

What About Family Illnesses?

The other explanation that is offered frequently is, “It runs in the family.”

So if your mother and grandmother and two sisters had hormonal difficulties, you might too.  But it doesn’t mean you have to either live with it or follow the western medicine treatment that they all did.

If all your nieces and nephews have ADHD, it doesn’t mean your children have to live with it.  They can be successful and actually get over the dis-ease they are currently experiencing rather than just managing it.

zebra_StressAnother way to think about diseases that “run in the family” is about how we learn to compensate for stressors in our lives. Homeopathy helps with stress and helps individuals deal with stress.  We learn how to compensate and deal with stress from our families.  While it may in the short term help with the acute stress, in the long term, stress can cause dis-ease to turn to disease.  If we respond as we learned, we may develop the same dis-ease and disease that our family members do.  This is a learned response rather than a genetic response.  It could be a physical response like a hormonal issue, or a mental/emotional response, such as choosing suicide when you are feeling hopeless.  Because several people in the family make the choice to have a hysterectomy or end their lives, it seems normal and “ok”.

Also, sometimes people from the same family tree simply need the same remedy as others who swing from the same branch.  I frequently see this happen.  A variation on this is that members of the family need remedies from the same plant family.

Healing with homeopathy can help prevent dis-ease that “runs in the family” or that the doctors don’t have a “cure” for. Let me know if you want to know more.



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.
