Bach Flower Remedies

The groom tried to lead the horse toward the ring at a weekend show.  The animal reared continuously and tried to strike his attendant.  They went back to the barn.  What’s wrong with the horse?  “He was afraid and his behavior was to escape.”  I mentioned this but few believed me.  “That horse is just mean!”  Well, let’s try something.  I walked over to the horse, lifted his lip and sprayed Rescue Remedy on his gums.  He curled his lip.  One minute later, one more dose.  “How long will it take to work?”  “If it is going to work, it has already happened.  Go ahead and lead him to the ring.”  Everyone was amazed as the groom led the horse, now a perfect gentleman.

Rescue Remedy is the famous Bach Flower Remedy for stress, panic, anxiety or fear.  It is available in drops, sprays, cream, and pastilles (lozenges).  There is also a Rescue Remedy for children and pets.

Originated by Dr. Edward Bach (1886-1936), whom thought illness, was a result of “a contradiction between the purpose of the soul and the personality’s point of view.”  The remedies are made to address the emotional aspects of one’s health.  Dr. Bach said, “Disease will never be cured or eradicated by present materialistic methods, for the simple reason that disease in its origin is not material…Disease is in essence the result of conflict between the Soul and Mind and will never be eradicated except by spiritual and mental effort”.  

If you want to take it a step further there are 38 individual remedies each with different uses.  Of the 38 remedies there are seven groups that include: 
p     Fear

You can custom mix your own unique blend for yourself.  Simply read the descriptions and pick the top 3 to 5 remedies that fit your situation.  For some, dosing 1 to 4 times daily will bring a sense of balance. 

Stay Well!
