Feel Bach! for Dog Obedience Training?

Have you ever tried to train a young dog who is simply too "busy" to pay attention - or to settle down and be quiet when you're on the phone?

That's what we've been doing. He's ten months old and an absolute sweetheart, but he's into everything. His latest adventure is finding books to chew up. (And he has the teeth to do a fine job of it.)

He's also started being as obnoxious as a human 3 year old when I'm on the phone. He wants my attention, and he's determined to have it.

I've been taking him outside to play and play and play - hoping to make him tired enough to settle down, but he has more energy than I do!

So a couple of days ago I hit on an idea, and it seems to be working.

I've been putting the Attention Deficit formula in his water dish,  and he really is calming down. He's still a bit naughty, but he's listening better, and he's only been on the formula for two days.

And this afternoon he let me carry on a phone conversation without pestering me even once.

Perhaps Feel Bach! should offer a pet formula for calming over-active dogs. In the meantime, if you've got a puppy like mine, try Attention Deficit.

Do You Know Someone Who is Afraid of Food?

Those suffering from a little-known eating disorder called orthorexia nervosa are making themselves sick through fear of foods. Their fixation on righteous eating causes them to limit their food choices more and more until malnutrition results. 

We can sympathize with their feelings, because the more we read about food additives and the effects of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides, the more we all wonder if the food we're eating is good for us. 

But these sufferers, who are generally over 30 years of age and well-educated, take it to unhealthy extremes. 

They commonly refuse to touch sugar, salt, caffeine, alcohol, wheat, gluten, yeast, soya, corn and dairy foods. Then they eliminate any foods that may have come into contact with pesticides or herbicides and any that might contain artificial additives.

Their habits become just as destructive as if they ate nothing but fast foods.

One Flower Essence that could help these people is Mimulus. This is Dr. Bach's Remedy for the personality that fears real life. Their fears are grounded in the fact that something bad could happen, even though it has not happened.

You might recognize a Mimulus personality by their frequency of illness and the length of time it takes them to recover. The Law of Attraction dictates that the excess attention they give to their illnesses usually delays recovery.

If you think you may be suffering from a negative Mimulus state, come to FeelBach! and take the questionnaire.  Then you'll know exactly which of Dr. Bach's remedies will help you most.

Dr. Bach's Essences Can Smooth Life's Bumpy Road

All of us, at some time or another, encounter energy blocks that make life less than joyful. 

It could be indecision, it could be changes we don't particularly like, it could be an event that's left us
worried about the future.

It could be our relationships that are off-kilter. Maybe we're being impatient or too demanding. Maybe we're feeling used, ignored, or unloved by those we care for.

Maybe we're not happy with our own behavior. We're down on ourselves for not having the energy to tackle all we should do, or we're ashamed of procrastination. Maybe we've just gotten into a funk and don't want to do a darned thing!

Whatever the reason, any time we're not going about our days happy within our own skins, it's time to do something about it.

It doesn't matter if the problem is chronic or if it comes and goes. It still interferes with living and loving life.

When You're Too Tired to Care, Look to Olive

Do you ever get days or weeks when you're just too tired to want to do anything?

It might feel like physical fatigue (when you haven't done anything physical) or mental fatigue, but it certainly is debilitating. Olive is the flower essence to get you out of the funk and back on track.

If you're a natural Olive personality, this state is especially distressing. You're used to being up-beat, energetic, in-charge, and ready to take on everything life offers. And now, you just don't care to do anything. Some days you simply want to sit, or take a nap. You aren't even interested in reading a book or watching television.

Ignoring the symptoms of the negative Olive state can actually lead to physical illness, so it's best to nip it in the bud with the Olive flower essence. This blocked energy flow can cause reduced kidney function, reduced oxygen flow, and internal toxicity. In other words, it's nothing to ignore.

Olive is often used to help people who are recovering from a long illness - even alcoholism.

So if you've lost your normal energetic personality, get the Olive essence from FeelBach! and feel better quickly.
