Bach Flower Remedies are a natural way to help restore your emotional balance when you are struggling to cope with life’s challenges, They are especially helpful during the worrying time we are going through at the moment.
There are 38 plant-based remedies in this complementary health therapy. They are very safe to use by all ages, from small babies to the elderly.
They only act on your emotions and not directly on your physical symptoms. However, extreme emotions like fear and anxiety can block the body’s power to heal itself.
Bach Flower Remedies can help you cope with the emotional effects of becoming ill, or being injured. These can range from shock, fear and resentment felt initially, to low mood and impatience felt during recovery from physical illness or injury.
Every day on the news we hear reports of the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. There is guidance readily available from medical authorities on how to protect yourself from infection. This includes practical advice such as frequent hand-washing and social distancing.
As with other illnesses, there are also psychological and emotional effects alongside the physical symptoms. The daily news reports may make you feel overwhelmed with worry and fear for both you and your family’s health.
There are several Bach Flower Remedies that can support you emotionally and help you overcome these feelings. Elm helps you feel less overwhelmed, and Red Chestnut allows you to control your worries for other people.
If you do become ill, Bach Flower Remedies can help you stay positive during quarantine and self-isolation.
These include Rescue Remedy (a blend of 5 flower remedies) to help calm your feelings of panic and anxiety. Or single remedies like Mimulus for being fearful of specific things, like the virus in this case.
There are also several remedies for low mood, like Gentian, and despondency, like Gorse.
We all react in different ways emotionally to life’s challenges and so different remedies will be needed by each individual.
As a Bach Foundation Registered Practitioner I can help devise your own personal blend.
Your individual blend will protect and support your emotional health both during this crisis, and also when life returns to some sort of normality.
