Don’t Wait For The Cannon Balls!

by | Oct 10, 2021 | chronic illness, Co-Vid 19

Your body is always sending you messages.  You can get those messages when something is going awry.  An ache or pain here, some twitching there. It could be an organic symptom that has developed. Or maybe you injured yourself and you are in denial!  These little messages are what I like to refer to as Ping-Pong balls.  Your body is throwing Ping-Pong balls at you.  It is easy enough for you to ignore them because it is a tiny thing. Should you ignore the Ping-Pong Balls of symptoms?

Some of us wait until it is a basketball, when the symptoms are worse and you can’t ignore them.  You go to the doctor, you try a remedy or essential oil on your own.

Your body is always sending you messages. Over time, the basketballs that get ignored become bowling balls or even cannon balls.  We can’t brush those symptoms aside.  We must deal with them. My husband’s father died recently from Lung Cancer.  It was definitely a cannon ball moment. He died within a few days of diagnosis. (Yes, he was a smoker.)

Mental/Emotional Cannon Balls

If we are lucky, we have good boundaries and good self-awareness, so that when something in a relationship starts to bother us we can take action right away.  But how many people do you know who have been stunned by a spouse who wants to leave?

How many families have experienced a suicide, or have been shocked by a sudden mental health hospitalization?

In most of those situations, there have been Ping-Pong balls that someone ignored.  It could be the surprised person, or it could be the one who took the action.  Either way, waiting and not dealing with the issues can cause transformation from Ping-Pong to Cannon Balls.

Don’t Wait For The Cannon Balls!


6Ɩ pIʌ oƆ

Lately my colleagues and I have helped folks with 6Ɩ p ᴉΛoƆ cases that have been getting worse and worse over the course of a few days.  People have been suffering needlessly. They should have called sooner.

Just like chronic illness, it is harder to treat when you wait. Do not wait to treat 6Ɩ pIʌ oƆ.  I have written in previous blog posts that when you first get that small cold symptom—maybe a scratchy throat, a runny nose, a chill.  As long as they aren’t really specific symptoms, take a couple of doses of Aconite 30c.  Then, reach out to me and get help.

Maybe your first symptom is loss of taste and smell.  The longer you wait to treat it, the harder it is to recover.  Taste can also be altered, instead of lost.  Entrenched symptoms become, at worst, Cannon Balls.  At best, Basketballs.

6Ɩ p ᴉΛoƆ symptoms can turn on a dime.  You can feel like it is just a minor cold one hour and the next, you are completely exhausted and having trouble breathing. This is nothing to mess around with.

Young Black Man Taking a course online. I encourage you to call and get help.  But even better, I am offering a course which you can sign up for here.  This course has an optional kit, and it allows you to take the course online on your own time.  You will learn how to deal with most symptoms of 6Ɩ p ᴉΛoƆ before they turn into symptoms that are worse.  Read more and sign up here.

What To Do Next

Your body is always sending you messages.  If that message is symptoms of the current virus, schedule an appointment here.  NOW!

If you are experiencing Ping-Pong Balls, Basketballs, Bowling Balls or Cannon Balls and your chronic health is on the line, schedule an appointment here.



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.
