How Individuals Use Bach Flowers

In our last post I told you about one user's success with Larch. She also highly recommends Centaury, which she says is a blessing from the universe.

Here's what she had to say: "I am not a martyr by any means, nor do I think lowly of myself, but I do have a big heart, & I found that people would take that for granted and I would give to my own detriment. I WOULD ALSO ACCEPT LESS THAN I DESERVED! Centaury has helped me to look out for ME and cherish me and only accept the best (Love, good treatment) for ME!"

You can read her whole story at

The formal description of Centaury says it helps overcome feelings of inferiority and provides the courage to say no to unreasonable demands. But as this Bach flower user pointed out, sometimes this inability to say no stems from a true desire to help, even when you don't consciously feel inferior.

After a few years of going along with such a program, most people would then need to seek a remedy to alleviate anger! Holly, perhaps?

It just occurred to me that businesses and organizations would run far more smoothly if everyone had the courage to say no at appropriate times. Then people wouldn't take on far more than they could do well, might not turn in projects either half finished or poorly done, and wouldn't waste days in anger at those who expected too much.

Once again, we invite your stories. We love hearing how Bach Flower Remedies are making lives better - just 4 tiny drops at a time.

If you don't have your own copy of the Bach Flower descriptions brochure, do visit and order it. There's no cost - all you have to do is say you want it.

What Bach Flower Users Say...

While the descriptions on the FeelBach! site and in the free brochure give you an accurate outline of which flower essence is needed for specific emotional disturbances, sometimes it's helpful to hear exactly how they affect individual users.

With that in mind, I've excerpted a message found on a forum:

"Larch helped me with confidence in speaking, (sharing my ideas), feeling at peace in crowds, and has given me a sense of courage to try new things which I used to feel afraid to try from a "fear of failure". Larch has also helped me not to take other peoples comments personally & recognize that if a person says something unkind that it is THEIR PROBLEM not mine."

Considering that so many problems in life begin with our own insecurities - those insecurities that allow us to emotionally crumble over another's unkind comment - it's good to know that something as simple as a few drops of Bach Flower Essences can allow us to go forward without being crippled by other people's opinions.

The writer's further observation was that BACH remedies cure the issues at the Root. That is, of course, the reason why Bach Flower Essences can bring much greater relief than pharmaceuticals, which only strive to "cure" the symptoms.

We'd love to hear your experiences, too. So please do feel free to leave a comment...

One last note: If you don't have your copy of the Bach Flower Essences brochure, simply visit and request a copy. There's no charge!

Anxiety causes other physical symptoms

This week one of the pet forums had a question about a dog who became constipated when upset. The dog's person wrote to ask for advice, because the dog was clearly miserable and the veterinarian had told her not to worry about it.

The answers this woman got were all about diet - what to feed the dog to get her system back on track. All of them completely missed the part about what had caused the problem: anxiety.

Of course I wrote and told her about Fee5ive and the other pet remedies for specific fears - thunderstorms (loud noise) and being left home alone.

But what struck me about the whole discussion was that all of those people, while trying to help, were addressing ways to cure the symptoms - not to alleviate the cause.

I think all of us who experience unusual and annoying physical symptoms should stop and think about the cause.

It's true that too much of a new kind of physical exertion will cause a sore back, knee, or arm - but what if you've had no different physical exertion? Then it's time to ask if something emotional is bothering you.

The same can be said for almost any physical ailment you experience. If you can't see a clear path from cause to effect, look to your emotional state for the cause.

Finding the root of the problem requires complete honesty - but fortunately for all of us, we need only be honest with ourselves. Using either the descriptions of the 38 flower essences at FeelBach! or using the questionaire, we can get the right flower essences to rebalance our energies without having to admit our innermost feelings to another soul.

Kids out of control

Lately we hear more and more about kids, and even adults, with Attention Deficit Disorder - sometimes it seems almost like an epidemic.

Some believe that it has a lot to do with diet - because fewer people are cooking from scratch, most people are eating a lot of preservatives and additives that we didn't get 40 years ago.

But diet may not be the only culprit. Kids are subjected to so much external stimulation - from constant TV to video games to more and more pressures at school. Even pre-school has become competitive.

When you combine that with parents who are stressed from working too many jobs or dealing with long commutes, it's no wonder that kids get a little off balance.

Doctors answer parents' concerns with a prescription - and in my eyes that's very scary. Americans are already over-medicated and becoming ever sicker from pharmaceutical side-effects and adverse drug interactions.

It can't be good to fill young, developing bodies with those toxins.

Before you take the chance of using pharmaceutical drugs on your child (or yourself), why not try a cure from nature: Bach Flower Essences.

The ADD problem is so common, that FeelBach! has even developed a "shelf product" specifically to realign the energies of children and adults who are suffering from it.

Since Bach Flower Remedies are safe for everyone from infants to nursing mothers to the elderly, you'll take no chance of doing harm while you're trying to do good. Flower essences cause no adverse side effects - and if your child is already on pharmaceuticals, they can be used in conjunction without fear of drug interactions.
