Should You Consult With a Bach Practitioner?

Should you hire a Bach practitioner to help you choose and use Dr. Bach’s Flower Remedies, or should you simply fill out the questionnaire and do it on your own? 

The answer to that lies in how comfortable you are with sharing your feelings.

A Bach practitioner is trained to help you get to the root cause of an unpleasant emotion. For instance, you may think you're feeling anger at an adult child who doesn’t give you the attention you crave. That may lead you to think that you're too demanding or controlling.

In fact, your feelings may stem from something you've "hidden" from yourself, such as shame over something you said to that child - perhaps years ago. By talking through those feelings with the Bach practitioner, you may find a solution that lets you uncover - and release - a long standing guilt.

You may feel that you've developed an attention deficit because you can't stick with a project and get things done. You might think you need our Attention Deficit Remedy.

The Bach practitioner might discover that you're simply trying to do too much and please too many people. What you really need is Centaury to gain the balance and courage to say no to demands.

On the other hand, if you're such a private person that you couldn't possibly explore your feelings with someone else, you'll do better by digging deep into your own feelings, and filling out the questionnaire as honestly as possible. The questions are designed to help you get to the root of things, and re-balance the energies that are causing your distress.

Whether you go it alone or get help from an expert, turn to Dr. Bach's essences to re-balance your energies and get you back to loving life!

Do you suffer from seasonal depression?

The month of March is difficult for many, especially those living in the northern climes, where winter seems to be lingering on, and on, and on. 

After months of being cooped up by the cold and snow, the inability to get outside and begin working on Springtime projects brings on gloom.

For others, March is simply a month that doesn’t offer breaks from school or work. 

The only way to get over it is to get busy, but when a person is depressed, there’s no incentive. There’s no energy for getting busy. So instead, they do more sitting and become more depressed.
Fortunately, Dr. Bach formulated a flower essence that can come to the rescue. 

Used for the treatment of chronic depression accompanied by “giving up,” Wild Rose can re-align your energies and allow you to find new enthusiasm, new interests, and new energy. 

Those who suffer from a chronic negative Wild Rose state often behave as if they are half dead. Their apathetic attitude and lack of interest makes them poor company and thus they spend more and more time alone – becoming even more depressed. 

You may recognize them in the people who stay in a bad marriage or stick with a job they hate, simply because they feel there’s no use. They have no choice. 

Wild Rose may be needed temporarily for seasonal depression or following a particularly trying period in life. It may also be needed as a long-term remedy for those whose condition has been long-standing.

Are your kids missing life’s simple lessons because of your impatience?

We all know that children need to learn the simple things of daily life – how to tie their shoes, how to make their bed, how to set the table or fill the dishwasher. They need to learn to bake cookies and cook a meal. And that’s just the beginning. 

Unfortunately, some parents’ impatience denies children this education. 

Parents find it easier to do it themselves than to teach the child, so they grow into adolescence and
adulthood with a stunted education. I once knew a girl who had to have her boyfriend sew on a button, simply because her Mother had never taken the time to teach her. Her cooking skills consisted of opening a can and heating the contents.

Parents who exhibit this behavior are Impatiens personalities living in the negative state. They’re quick-thinking people who prefer to work alone because they can’t stand waiting for less able co-workers to get things done. They really can’t comprehend why others can’t follow their fast train of thought. 

Doctor Bach’s flower essence Impatiens can bring them back into the positive state – where they still have active minds, but have some empathy and patience for those who move at a slower pace. They will still prefer to work alone, however and are far better off in non-managerial positions.
But what about daily life – we all become impatient now and then. 

If you work on a computer and are not “technically gifted,” you know the impatience of waiting for someone else to come and take care of those technical issues so you can get on with your work.
If you’ve ever made a phone call to a company with sixteen buttons to push before you’re put on hold, you know how it makes you want to scream with impatience. 

If you commute to work and have to sit in traffic jams for an hour or so of your day, you become understandably impatient. 

Impatiens can help those situations as well. It won’t make things go faster, but it will give you the patience to tolerate the wait without raising your blood pressure. Instead, you’ll calm down and think of useful ways to use that time.
