Conquer ADHD Naturally

ADHD can get in the way of a child's ability to learn, and prevent an adult from both social and financial success.

The pharmaceutical industry has "cures," but they involve ingesting dangerous drugs - possibly for a lifetime. In other words, they don't remove the problem, they merely mask the symptoms.

Because the problem is so widesprad, Feel Bach! has developed an Attention Deficit shelf blend to address ADHD and help sufferers re-balance their energies. Many are reporting success using this product alone, but there's even more you can do to help.

Transcendental Meditation is proving to be a benefit to children and parents alike. In a study done over a 3 month period, children were asked to sit still for 10 minutes at a time and concentrate on repeating just one word, over and over. They repeated this exercise 2 or 3 times per day, with impressive results. Teachers and parents both reported an increase in attention span and ability to focus.

Exercise can also benefit. Children especially enjoy the "Standing Figure 8" exercise, in which they are asked to use their whole bodies to swing their arms up and down and side to side in a laying down figure 8 pattern. This movement causes energies to cross over the midpoint of the body and thus helps with re-balancing. It also releases pent-up energies for a child who has trouble sitting still.

This exercise is beneficial for anyone working long and hard at a project that requires focus and concentration. When fatigue or distractions begin to cause a lack of progress, getting up to do this exercise can clear the mind and help you get back on track.

If there's no space for arm swinging, the figure 8 exercise can also be done in a sitting position. Hold your arms in front and palms together in a prayer position, thumbs up. Moving the arms as far to each side as possible, keep your eyes focused on your thumbs, so that your eyes as well as your arms are moving your energies back and forth across your body.

No discussion of ADHD would be complete without mentioning nutrition and allergies. By removing one food or food group at a time, you may discover that all that hyperactivity is merely a reaction to a substance the body doesn't like.

Do remember to include artificial sweeteners in your testing. They are now shown to produce a variety of harmful side-effects and ADHD could be one that just hasn't been proven yet.

Free Yourself From Resentment so You Can Move Forward

Resentment and jealousy are pretty common emotions today, and no one can be blamed for feeling them.

If you or a loved one has been laid off from work or had your salary cut, you no doubt feel resentment toward the company you worked for, along with the the state of the economy and whoever / whatever you feel is to blame for that state.

You might also feel resentment and jealousy toward the people in the news who are receiving million dollar bonuses while you struggle with your own finances. Even if you've only had to cut back on vacation plans or spend a little less on personal entertainment, seeing other people raking in that kind of money can make you see red.

If you've lost your home to this crisis - those feelings could be overwhelming.

Jealousy and resentment are definitely normal reactions at times like this, but if you let them get out of hand, they can be terribly destructive - to you and to the people you love. They can turn into an invisible wall that keeps you from moving forward and enjoying life, and they can cause isolation from family and friends.

If you're suffering from these emotions, you're in a negative Willow state. Everyone experiences it occasionally, but if it's threatening to become a habit - or even a personality trait - it's time to use Bach Flower Essences from FeelBach! to bring them under control.

Pine personalities suffer if not treated

Do you know or love someone who is a Pine personality and needs help?

Years ago, before I knew that Bach Flower Essences could help such folks, I knew a young boy who was a Pine personality. You could not speak with him for more than a minute or two before he said "I'm sorry."

Most of the time, there was absolutely nothing to be sorry for, but he was sorry anyway. He was a bit of a mischief maker, so there were times when he needed to say these words. He was, after all, the 12-year old you could catch smoking out behind the barn. At the time, I thought his misbehavior was a way to get attention, and of course that could have been part of the problem. Pine personalities long for love and acceptance - and thus attention.

But most of the time he was a sweet and considerate little boy - the only thing he needed to be sorry for was irritating everyone by saying "I'm sorry!"

After researching and studying the Bach Flower Essences, I've learned that people in the severe Pine state do tend to apologize for their very existence. They don't seem to recognize that they deserve to live, and certainly not to live happily.

In extreme cases, the Pine person will even apologize for events that happened long before his or her birth.

Because they lack joy in life, the Pine person is often tired and is prone to illness. And he'll apologize for becoming ill.

If you have a child or another loved one who suffers from this energy imbalance, read the rest of the story about Pine, and then come back to FeelBach! and get him or her started on treatment. You'll be giving your loved one a valuable gift.

Great News for Bach Flower Essence Users

FeelBach! has just made available the complete list of Bach Flower Essences with an explanation of what each is used for.

The new website tells how to recognize symptoms when a person is in need of a specific flower essence, so that those who do not have access to a Bach Flower practitioner can more easily determine which essences will help them the most.

Check out the Bach Flower Reference Guide today!

Be sure to bookmark the pages that apply to you, or take good notes. As I read all the pages I learned what to use in specific situations in my own life as well as how to treat some flowers I had transplanted into my garden.

They were not doing well, but with a little help from Feel5ive and Crab Apple, they're thriving. I guess it stands to reason that energies from healthy flowers might assist other flowers when they were in need. I just added a few drops of each to the watering can each day for about a week, and now I'm enjoying new blooms on healthy, happy plants.
