If Your Child is Having Trouble in School...

Your child may be having trouble in school for several reasons.

He (or she) may not understand the material and needs either a better teacher or a tutor. Or, the problem might be lack of focus and concentration.

Doctors are fond of diagnosing ADD or ADHD, and do like to prescribe medications which may or may not be good for your child. If you're like me, you're fearful of filling your child's body with chemicals that may do more harm than good.

Before you take such a drastic step, consider using Dr. Bach's flower essences to help your child get his or her energies back in balance. Feel Bach's Attention Deficit formula is designed to help your child (or you) focus and pay attention. It quiets the mind, so that your child's thoughts will quit bouncing around like a grasshopper.

Another situation that keeps a child from doing well in school is fear. He or she may be afraid of a bully - in which case you need to step in. Or, fear of failure could be causing the very failure he fears. Remember the Law of Attraction - it works for children as well as adults. Thinking "I'm going to flunk this test" could bring about that very result.

If this kind of fear is hampering your child's progress, you can do two things. First, reassure him or her that your love isn't contingent on grades. Second, focus on accomplishments, and get him thinking about and talking about the things he's done well. And finally, give him Feel5ive in the morning before school, again after school, and again at bedtime. After a week or so you may be able to reduce the dosage to once each morning before school, and eventually discontinue use except in extreme situations.

The flower essences in Feel5ive will help to re-balance energies and relieve that anxiety, so your child can be free to enjoy learning.

Worrying about the election won't help - but it can hurt YOU

Worry is a debilitating emotion. It can dominate your thoughts until you're unable to function
properly in your home or work life. It can give you indigestion. It can affect your sleep. It can even lead to physical ailments.

Meanwhile, those who know the Law of Attraction will tell you that worrying about something will draw that something to you.

Perhaps your individual worry that the "wrong" candidate will be elected won't change the outcome, but if enough people worry together, it just might. The vibratory energy of thought is a powerful force.

So if you're worried - about the election or about anything else affecting your life, the thing to do is to cut it out.

Gain control of your mind and your thoughts - and when you begin to worry or obsess over something, "switch the channel." Think of something that pleases you.

Maybe that something is the smile on a loved one's face. Maybe it's a warm puppy. Maybe it's anticipation of a bubble bath. Whatever it is that will give your feelings an instant lift - switch to it.
If you're having trouble thinking of something when the worry has taken over - keep a written list of "good feeling thoughts" that you can refer to. Then do it. 

Meanwhile, get and use Dr. Bach's flower essences White Chestnut and Aspen. Both will help to re-balance your energies and allow you to once again gain control of your own thought processes.

When allowed, your higher self will guide you to better feeling thoughts and will stop you from obsessive worrying. When your energies are out of balance, you turn off those messages from the higher self and are left at the mercy of your own mental hyperactivity.

As for the election... Support your candidates and campaign for them by giving other people good reasons to do the same. Donate if you can do so without depriving your loved ones.

And then, go vote.

Are You "Falling Apart" in the face of too many responsibilities?

Suddenly, there's too much going on at work, too much going on at home, and too many stresses and demands in our relationships. At that point, we feel like we're "supposed" to be doing it all at once, even though we know that's physically impossible. 

It can happen easily, especially for people who have a strong sense of responsibility and a hard time saying "No" to requests.

Of course the answer is to learn to say no, then to prioritize our tasks and delegate some of them to another person. But... that's not always easy. Some of us take responsibility so seriously that we feel we must handle every small detail.

Keeping on in that vein is a good way to bring on exhaustion and physical illness along with mental distress. And then, when you suddenly can't cope, the people around you don't know what to do, because you've made yourself indispensable. Remember that your first responsibility is to yourself - and that you'll be of no use to the people who depend upon you if you have an emotional or physical breakdown.

Turn to the flower essence Elm for the ability to calm your mind, re-balance your energies, and give yourself permission to give some of those responsibilities to someone else.

Why do Dr. Bach’s 38 flower essences work?

Why do Dr. Bach’s 38 flower essences work?

Flower essences work because they carry energies – and those energies can re-balance and heal the energies in our bodies. You may already know that we humans – along with all other plants, animals, and minerals - are nothing but vibrating energy.

When those energies are out of balance, our emotions are out of balance. And then, when our
emotions are imbalanced, our bodies often become imbalanced and ill. It can become a self-perpetuating downward spiral, as we focus our attention on being ill – or on being fearful, jealous, or unhappy in any way.

The reason why the Law of Attraction always works is that our vibrating energies act as magnets – drawing like to like.

Using Dr. Bach’s essences to heal our energies can stop the spiral and allow us to climb once more into spiritual, emotional, and physical health and joy.

Are there disbelievers? Of course. There are also many who refuse to believe in the Law of Attraction – even while others observing them can point out exactly how its working in their lives.

As a youth, before I had ever heard of the Law of Attraction, I knew that people who talked about illness all the time became ill all the time. They had one malady after another. I learned not to pay attention or take part in any discussions about illness.

As I got older I saw that people who talked about being broke all the time were always broke – anything they tried to get out of it failed. I learned not to talk about things I couldn’t do or couldn’t afford.

What I didn’t know in those days was that the Law of Attraction can also work to bring good health and prosperity.

Dr. Bach’s flower essences are just part of bringing that positive energy and health into our bodies and our emotions. Thinking positive helps – and flower essences give our mental energy the boost it needs to bring us back into the sunshine.

That said, I have watched as flower essences helped those who thought there was no hope – like a friend who couldn’t get enough sleep. When I gave him a bottle of Sweet Dreams and said “just try it,” he set aside his doubts and tried it. He called a few days later to thank me.

So if you haven’t tried flower essences yet – just do it. They can give you the boost you need to get back to loving your life. 

Come see us at and choose the flower essences that are right for you.

Dealing with life in a state of fear - Feel5ive to the rescue


For many, the summer of 2016 is one of fear.

Many in the general population are fearful of attending a movie, going to a night club or restaurant, or even sending their children to school. Who knows where the next terror attack will occur?

For policemen and policewomen and their families, the fear factor is even more acute, especially for those living in cities where anti-police sentiments are riding highest.

This fear does call for some common sense precautions, of course. At the same time, when a person allows fear to override everything good in their lives, it's a prescription for disaster. Your fear can affect your family and friends and overshadow all the good things in your lives. It can also lead to physical health issues, which of course lead to even more fear, both for you and the people who love you.

If YOU are living in fear, let Dr. Bach's flower essences help you cope – so that you can still see the good and enjoy your life and your loved ones.

Feel5ive is the FeelBach! formula to use as an overall calmative. Containing both Rock Rose and Mimulus, it will help you tap into your inner spiritual strength and prevent your emotions from derailing your life.

Used for specific fearful events, such as a visit to the dentist, an airline flight, or an important job interview, it can also help smooth out your daily life when fear of the unknown threatens to paralyze you.

Four drops taken 3 times a day can keep you from letting fear take over your life.

Is there such a thing as too much love?

Unfortunately, there is. Perhaps not too much love, but too much worry and concern for loved ones.

The fact is, you can love your friends and family so much that you can harm them. If you're doing this, you need Red Chestnut.

Red Chestnut is the
Flower Essence for those who worry unnecessarily about the health and well-
being of their loved ones. For instance, the Father who can't allow a child to go off to summer camp because he or she might get hurt; the Mother who walks the floor until her adult child, or anyone else she loves, calls to say they have safely made it to a destination; and the Grandmother who tries to discourage her grandchildren from participating in sports because she fears for their safety.

Their constant thought is "what if..." and they imagine the worst. 

These parents and grandparents are suffering - there's no doubt, but unfortunately, they are not the only ones who suffer. While the concern is based in love, the over-protectiveness and hovering can be stifling and even emotionally damaging to those they worry about. 

In fact, this much "love" can cause physical symptoms as well. When writing about this malady, Dr. Bach told about the reactions of his friends when he had suffered an accident. He said he felt their worry as an acute physical pain in his own body.

Since the last thing you want to inflict on your loved ones is pain, visit FeelBach! today and learn how Dr. Bach's Essences can help you release the fears that keep you from enjoying having people to love.

Is Sleep Loss Making You Sick?

In today's fast paced world, more and more people are getting by on less and less sleep - much to the detriment of their health, their mental and emotional well-being, and their work productivity. 

One of the symptoms of sleep loss is impaired judgment - especially about sleep! 

Yes, you DO need 7 or 8 hours, so don't consider it a badge of honor to get by with 5 or 6 - or even less. 

Along with impairing judgment, lack of sleep impairs attention, concentration, reasoning, memory, and problem solving. That means those extra hours you spend working instead of sleeping aren't making you more productive. In fact, the opposite is true. 

Over time, lack of sleep can lead to depression and anxiety, which leads to insomnia, and even greater lack of sleep. It's a downward spiral that can lead to even more problems - such as increased risk of death from :
  • heart disease
  • heart attack
  • heart failure
  • high blood pressure
  • stroke
  • diabetes
Although less serious, lack of sleep also ages your skin, causing puffy eyes, fine lines, dark circles, and sallow skin. This is because lack of sleep causes excess release of the stress hormone cortisol. 

Cortisol breaks down skin collagen, which is a protein that keeps skin smooth and elastic. 

At the same time it causes the body to release too little human growth hormone, which works to regenerate and repair our tissues.  

Sleeplessness is a public health hazard as well

The National High Traffic Safety Administration estimates that 1,550 crash-related deaths each year are the direct cause of driving under the influence of sleep loss. This is just a fraction of the 100,000 crashes from this cause. 

Sleepiness also leads to job injuries, and accidents with world-wide consequences. It was a factor in the Exxon Valdez oil spill, the nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl, and the nuclear accident at Three Mile Island. 

Are YOU sleep deprived? 

If so, it's time to change your habits, and FeelBach! can help.
Because there are a variety of reasons why you're missing sleep, we've created four different flower
essences formulas to help you get back into better sleep habits. 

Sweet Dreams #1 is for those who can't seem to release the day, but instead lay awake worrying about what did and didn't get done, and what needs to be done tomorrow.

Sweet Dreams #2 is for those whose minds just won't shut off, or who are awakened by every little sound in the house, or who are worried about getting up on time. 

Sweet Dreams #3 releases the fears and regrets that keep you awake.

Sweet Dreams #4 is for those who wake up too early, eager to get on with the day and stop wasting time. 

To read more about each of these formulas and choose which is the right one for you, visit the FeelBach! Sweet Dreams page

Is the sameness in your routine exhausting you?

Are you in a rut that's put your life on auto-pilot?

Do you dread getting up in the morning to "Do it all over again?" Is your life one of excessive routine? Do you lack the energy and incentive to do something new? Are you perpetually exhausted?
Then you may be a Hornbeam personality in a negative state.

The negative hornbeam state can occur after a forced period of focused attention, such as when studying long and hard to reach a desired goal. It can happen due to enforced inactivity due to illness or injury.

Unfortunately, it can also come about due to a job which offers little in the way of mental challenge or variety in tasks. Young mothers who stay home with children or those who care for an invalid day after day, doing the same chores can also slip into a negative Hornbeam state.

When it happens, the sufferer experiences a weariness bordering on exhaustion, but it's primarily a mental, not a physical exhaustion. It stems from an imbalance and a failure of energy systems to communicate and work together.

Most who suffer from the negative Hornbeam state can be jarred out of it simply by having a new and unexpected challenge. However, this isn't always easy, because the sufferer fails to listen to his or her Higher Self and is resistant to change. Ordinary impulses to "do something" are brushed aside.
Using the Hornbeam flower essence developed by Dr. Bach will reconnect the energy systems and bring back the balance needed to enjoy life and welcome new challenges.

Interestingly, Hornbeam used in a compress is also useful in treating tired, irritated eyes and varicose veins. Used with other essences, it has provided help in drug rehabilitation, and it is often used by gardeners as a tonic to revitalize limp plants.

Visit FeelBach! today and fill out our questionnaire to see if you should use Hornbeam alone or combined with others of Dr. Bach's flower essences.

Is Your Impatience Damaging Your Life ?

If you suffer from impatience, it probably means that you are a highly intelligent person. You're quick-thinking and quick-acting.

If you're suffering, it also means that you're in a negative Impatiens state, which can be damaging to you and to those around you.

Working with those who proceed at a slower pace is a constant irritant, so you're apt to become tense and irritable. From a physical standpoint, you could be prone to nervous indigestion, sudden pain due to nervous tension, and even hot flashes. You're also apt to tire quickly, simply because the stress combined with inaction is exhausting.

Are you an impatiens personality?

In addition to being highly intelligent, Impatiens personalities are independent, although they're generally open to good advice. The best jobs for them allow them to work alone, at their own fast pace. While their intelligence and efficiency often get them promoted to "higher" positions, this is not where they want to be, nor is it where they belong, because it can put them into a negative state.

Those in a negative impatiens state make very unpopular supervisors, since they'd rather just do a task themselves instead of guiding and teaching a trainee. As bosses, they tend to push employees until they become known as slave-drivers.

They make even worse teachers.

I recall a teacher I knew who was an impatiens personality in a perpetual negative state. She taught algebra, and her students suffered. Those who could grasp the concept from the book alone did well, but students who needed instruction simply ended up hating algebra. She had no patience with teaching and would berate those students for their stupidity.

Impatiens parents tend to do things for their children rather than teaching them to do for themselves – which can be extremely damaging to those children. I've known young people who didn't even know how to sew on a button, or load a dishwasher, simply because their parents didn't take the time to show them how.  

Fortunately, Dr. Bach created the Impatiens flower essence to allow the impatiens personality to enjoy life with their more "laid back" co-workers, friends, and relatives
If you suffer from this negative state, visit FeelBach! to order this flower essence today. You'll be much happier, and so will those who love you.

Winter depression is no joke. Dr. Bach's essences can help.

February can be a depressing time, even for those not given to depression the rest of the year. It's a time in between the holiday season and Spring, when nothing interesting seems to be going on. 

And for those in the northern states, it can feel like the dark, grey days will never be replaced by

Humans need sunlight, and lack of it can cause the most cheerful person to feel gloomy. That's why some companies sell fixtures with special light bulbs to simulate sunlight.

For those who continually suffer from mild to severe depression, this season is even more trying.
Thankfully, Dr. Bach developed the flower essences Wild Rose and Gorse to lift us out of depression – whether it is seasonal or chronic.

Gorse is the remedy for those who still have some hope, but feel on the verge of giving up. Some use it to get past a temporary setback or a seasonal depression and don't need to continue once they're past the crisis.

Wild Rose is for those who feel like there's no use in trying. For some, use of Wild Rose must be ongoing, especially when they are trying to get at the root of the problem through psychotherapy or self-examination.

In both cases, the flower essences help to re-set the sufferer's energy flow and allow joy into his or her life.

In some cases, it's advisable for family members to use Wild Rose or Gorse along with the sufferer, because like the common cold, depression can be contagious. Prolonged exposure to a person who feels no joy or enthusiasm for life is not just boring and frustrating. It can bring others down – especially loved ones.  

If you're suffering from depression, you owe to both yourself and your loved ones to lift yourself out. Use the power of positive thought, use the Law of Attraction, use simulated sunlight, or use psychotherapy – and let Dr. Bach's Wild Rose and Gorse flower essences help you succeed.

Visit FeelBach! today and get started.

Is illness simply a fact of life - or preventable?

Is it possible to avoid illness?

With all the worries and stresses in the world and all the toxins in our air, our water, and our food, is it even possible to remain well?

Dr. Edward Bach believed it was entirely possible to remain well. So do those who consciously practice the Law of Attraction.

 Dr. Bach believed that health “Depends on being in harmony with our souls.” Thus, the source of wellness or illness lies within.

Law of Attraction practitioners believe that wellness is our natural state of being, but we disallow it by focusing on negatives. Genuine gratitude for all we have can be a path to wellness for those who embrace it.

If both approaches are correct, it explains why the solutions offered by modern scientific medicine are so often temporary. The symptoms have been treated, but the cause has not been removed.

Dr. Bach wrote that to treat an illness – no matter what the ailment – the doctor should look first to the outlook on life of the person in distress.
Thus, in addition to the Bach Flower Essences, Dr. Bach promoted exercise, meditation, and study. He wrote that only by creating harmony between soul and mind could we free ourselves from disease. And that, of course, is very close to beliefs in the Law of Attraction.

What do the flower essences have to do with it? If you study each of the flowers, you’ll notice that they have specific qualities of strength or fragility. And according to Dr. Bach, each carries specific information which can amplify our inner voices and assist us in regaining harmony. Our desire for harmony works with the flower essences to create the desired wellness in mind, spirit, or body.

Doctor Bach said we must free ourselves from the "disease complex of fear" and put ourselves in harmony with our souls.  The Law of Attraction says we must put ourselves in vibrational harmony with our higher selves, and thereby with that which we desire. We must cease staying in harmony with that which we do not want.

Our natural condition is to live in health and abundance and joy, and when we stay in harmony with ourselves, we experience that natural condition. Dr.Bach's Essences can help us return to that harmony.
