I talk about the Bach Flower Remedies a lot. You might call it an obsession, and perhaps you’d be right.
But there is a good reason for that. They do work, and, choosing the right ones can perform what seems like miracles.
Going into details about the remedies, and the knowledge I’ve gained, is something I will be doing over the course of time.
There are thirty eight of them (not including the more famous Rescue Remedy ® and Rescue Cream. ®
I will look at all of them over time, but let’s just quickly discuss they I love them so much.
They are non-toxic.
They are non-addictive.
You cannot overdose or take the wrong ones. You simply will feel no effects if you do not need them.
They heal the cause of the problems, not the symptoms.
They are cruelty free.
Because they are vibrational in nature, they do not interfere with other medications or other forms of treatment. And by vibrational, I mean they heal on a level that is emotional / spiritual… and yes, I know that sounds newagey, airy fairy, castle in the sky stuff, but take me from me, it’s a fact.
They are easy to take.
They are cheap. One bottle can cost around 8 dollars if bought online, and can last for literally years. The use-by date generally is 10 years, though they can last indefinitely if the alcohol preserving them is good quality.
They work either ingested orally or rubbed on pressure points, such as your wrists. (wonderful if you can’t tolerate alcohol.)
The healing they provide is of a permanent nature. Once you are healed, you stay healed, until life and its events distresses you again.
While they are designed to be easy to self-diagnose, the skill lies on knowing what the cause of the problem is. That is not always obvious. Experience and knowing oneself is the key here.
They work on plants, animals and children.
They are a complete healing system.
They can work within moments. The more you take them, the more attuned you become, and the quicker the results.
The only downside is that you cannot mix too many of them together at once. Conventional wisdom says that you should not mix more than seven at a time.
I say that four is optimum, and they should be remedies that complement each other.
The good news is that I discovered that you can break the seven remedy limit if you take them one at a time instead of mixing them. There is no limit to how many you can use them.
Not only can you cure depression, but you can cure other conditions. For instance, I have used them to stop asthma.
The theory is that by treating the cause, you heal the problem.
Dr. Bach said: Treat the patient, not the dis-ease.
Personally, I don’t think I would be able to function without them in my life. They have pulled me from the brink way too often, and I’m sure it would have taken years of intense therapy to otherwise recover.
As I said, I will cover them all, but in the meantime, if anyone has questions, please ask and I will answer them.
