A Posthumous Remedy for Whitney Houston

by | Mar 1, 2012 | Argentum Nitricum, Homeopathy and Families, Musicians, Whitney Houston

The loss of a great talent is always sad, and when that person dies at a young age, it is especially distressing.

It is unfortunate that Whitney Houston didn’t know about homeopathy (or if she did, she clearly wasn’t using it).  Her anxiety about whether she was good enough could have been helped.

Normally, a homeopath can’t just figure out a remedy for someone without sitting down with her and hearing the story in her own words.  Fortunately, we do have interviews with Whitney and stories related by several friends and acquaintances that have been played on TV and printed in magazines and the internet in the wake of her death and funeral.  Still, to be able to ask her questions would make this more accurate.

Whitney needed a remedy from the Mineral world, which is generally about finding ones place in the world.  She knew she wanted to be a singer, but she was often torn about the type of music she sang and whether she was a good enough actress to be in the movies.

Specifically, I would choose a mineral remedy from the Fifth row of the Periodic Table. This row includes remedies for very creative people:  artists, musicians, actors, etc.  It also includes athletes, because it is all about performance.  Attorneys, ministers and healers are also often found in this row.

I would choose Palladium Metallicum for Whitney Houston.  Palladium is in the 10th column of the periodic table.  In homeopathy, remedies in the 10th column are the most confident.  But it is important to know that they can also have the opposite symptoms as well.  Also, think of the 10th column as the top of the peak.  If you are standing at the top of the peak, you need to balance yourself and can easily fall one way or another.  Remedies to the right of Column 10 are often seeking a way to get back to the top where they once were.  Remedies to the left of Column 10 are hoping to finally arrive.

Palladium is the sparkling success, glowing under admiring looks, the glittering prize.  They want people to admire them and the more admirers the better.  They love the lime light.

However, on the reverse side of this remedy, they can lack confidence, feel humiliated, experience wounded pride.  It is possible that Whitney Houston needed this remedy while she was at her best but needed a remedy to the right of Palladium when she started to fall.  Argentum (silver) is in Column 11.

I would consider Argentum Nitricum or Argentum Metallicum.  Both of them have performance anxiety, which she had.  They also like to be admired and acknowledged, but don’t feel they are anymore.  They can become quite dictatorial and condescending (which she was) if they don’t get what they want.  She apparently had people in her entourage who would never tell her “no”.  The other reason for considering an Argentum remedy of some sort is because people who need these remedies are very concerned about their image.  Whitney Houston had her imaged managed very carefully and her marriage to Bobby Brown was a rebellion of sorts towards that image management.  The fact that she had someone else managing her image is the same as her managing her own image.

Argentum Nitricum has more anxiety than Argentum Metallicum.  They are afraid they can’t deliver as promised anymore.  They look for a way out of performances (boy, did she!), they feel nervous before every performance, they feel suffocated and want to escape.

It is possible that she needed Palladium while she was successful and one of the Argentums once she fell from the top.  Another option are the Antimoniums (Stibium).  The reason is that people who need these remedies often have a foul mouth, which apparently she did, but not on stage.  But she probably married a person who needs an Antimonium remedy.

In preparing to write this blog I watched several Whitney Houston videos and listened to her songs on Spotify. It broke my heart to see her singing The Star Spangled Banner at the Super Bowl.  She was in her element there.  Happy, glittering, glowing. http://youtu.be/eS4v431Mlak  Her rendition of Dolly Parton’s I Will Always Love You was one of the top selling singles ever.  Yet, the delusion persisted that she wasn’t good enough.

Homeopathy can do a lot, but it can’t bring back a person from the dead.  It is sad that more people don’t know about it as an option to remove their delusions and improve and even save their lives.

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.
