Jet Lag and Homeopathy

Homeopathy can help jet lag.

One of the worst things about travel is the Jet Lag that accompanies that.  One of the best remedies for jet lag is Cocculus indicus.  I have seen it work first hand for my husband who travels a lot for work and for my son.

Two years ago the family went on a vacation to Spain and Portugal.  After finally getting to sleep, my youngest son woke up in the morning and did not feel good.  He was nauseous and didn’t feel like eating at all.  We had a car trip scheduled from Madrid to the Algarve.  It did not look good for my son.

Cocculus is a remedy for fatigue from travels and loss of sleep.  An accompanying symptom is nausea.  Cocculus is a motion sickness and morning sickness remedy as well.  My son had all those symptoms, plus, he refused to talk.  He just wanted to sleep.

Just a few minutes before we packed everything into the car I gave him a dose of Cocculus.  Twenty minutes into the car ride, he started talking and didn’t quit for hours.  The remedy helped save the first few days of our trip.  When we arrived, he slept well.

Arnica montana also helps with jet lag and exhaustion.  If you take a dose when you arrive or when you start to feel tired, it can give you a second wind to make it until bed time in your part of the world.

If traveling for business and you find yourself thinking of business issues while not sleeping, Nux Vomica would be a good remedy to try.

Another option for dealing with Jet Lag is to use an Australian Bush Flower Travel essence.  You can either put the drops or the creme on once an hour while traveling.  My oldest son used it when he went to China with my husband.  It worked very well for him.  He used it, my husband did not (he took nothing) and he recovered from his jet much more quickly than my husband did.

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.
