Pets, People, and Plants all suffer when exposed to traumas such as a wildfire, abuse, neglect or any number of fear or loss based issues. But where there is a problem, there is always a solution. In this case, the solution is based on flower essences to bring back the balance and healing that our immune system so desperately needs. Deepak Chopra, once stated that “Every second of every day, all of the cells in your body are listening to your thoughts and emotions.” When those emotions are negative based such as anxiety, fear, loss, depression, trauma, etc. then your immune system is not able to work at it’s best to keep you healthy.
In the 1930’s, Dr. Edward Bach, a well known English physician, bacteriologist, immunologist, and homeopath created the original Bach Flower Remedies that are now used in 66 different countries world wide. For over 80 years they have helped millions of people live emotionally blanced and healthy lives. Dr. Bach created 38 different remedies for a broad range of emotional issues. In addition he then blended five essences to create the criss formula of Rescue Remedy. The essences in Rescue Remedy are: Star of Bethlehem for trauma, grief and loss; Impatiens impatience with the slowness of how things are going; Rock Rose feelings of extreme terror; Clematis to help you focus; and Cherry Plum for fear of loosing control.
All of the Bach Remedies are homeopathic, safe for all ages and totally compatible with anything you may be eating or any medications you are taking. Below is a partial list of essences that may be particularly helpful at this time.
