June is PTSD Awareness Month

by | Jun 9, 2022 | PTSD, PTSD from Work, Veterans with PTSD

The US Senate has declared June 27th as National PTSD Awareness Day. The National Center for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder has named June as PTSD Awareness Month.  The purpose of such designations is to inform people where they can get help if they think they are suffering from PTSD.  Since homeopathy has not been mentioned by any main stream organizations, I will say it here.  Homeopathy can help you recover from PTSD.

Who Has it Helped?

Watch these Three very short videos.  The Iraq War Vet video of one of the most intense cases of PTSD in a veteran that I have ever had in my practice. The Afghanistan Vet, less intense. The other is a summary of a work related case of PTSD.

How Does It Help?

Let’s all agree that we all live in some state of delusion in our lives. Some more challenging, or perhaps even harmful, than other forms of delusion.

Homeopathy is based on this idea that we all have delusions.  In fact, in the homeopathic repertory (a book of symptoms matched up to remedies) has many symptoms for Delusions; 3582 symptoms to be precise.

Some of these are what we refer to in homeopathy as “modalities”.  Meaning when is it better, worse, what else effects it. Some of the symptoms are “concomitant” symptoms, meaning they come on with the delusion.  For example, “Shuddering with the delusion.”

More importantly for PTSD sufferers, there are seemingly unlimited types of delusions. A commonly used one for PTSD clients is, “Delusions, about to die.” There are 102 remedies that cover that symptom.

What About Medical Marijuana or CBD Oil?

Those are both possible options.  Certainly they are safer options than some of the medications that are tried.  However, they don’t really help elimination the symptoms.  They just manage them.  Read this blog entry for more discussion on this topic.

Which Symptoms Do You Use for Which People?

This is where the case taking becomes important in choosing the right remedy in order for homeopathy to help you recover from PTSD. As a trained homeopath, I try to dig deep.  I don’t need you to relive the experience as much as I need you to tell me what your emotions and sensations are around the incident(s).

Many of the conventional medicine psychological techniques such as EMDR, require that you live the experience over and over and over to basically desensitize you. With Homeopathy, the right remedy can change the delusion that what you are experiencing is still happening.  Be it dreams that you are being attacked, or reminders of the incident over and over in your mind, there are symptoms and remedies that can help.  Without you having to relive the experience during your appointments.

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.
