Q: How do the remedies work to help
A: Feel Bach! flower remedies work on an energy level. Each of the
38 Dr. Bach's flower essences carries an energy which works to rebalance
and heal a specific emotional state. Working alone or in combination
with other essences, they bring your personal energy into harmony
with your soul and your higher self - creating emotional well-being
and freeing you from such negative states as jealousy, self-doubt,
fear, and despair.
Emotional well-being is, of course, an end in itself. However, once
your energy is balanced and harmonious, the path becomes clear for healing
at a physical level as well. To quote Dr. Bach: "They… cure
by flooding our bodies with the beautiful vibrations of our Higher Nature,
in the presence of which, disease melts away as snow in the sunshine."
Q: Are there any dangers associated
with taking Dr. Bach's flower essences?
A: No, none. Dr. Bach's flower essences
have no side effects and are safe for everyone, including pregnant
women, the elderly, people with allergies, and those taking prescription
drugs. In addition, according to the principle of how Bach Flowers
work, it is impossible to overdose.
Q: How should flower essences be taken?
A: For chronic problems, flower essences should be
taken 4 times per day - including upon awakening and at bedtime. You
need only 4 drops under the tongue each time.
For immediate effect in crisis situations, take 4 drops as needed,
but not less than 8 drops per day. Alternatively, you can add 8 drops
to a cup of mineral water and sip throughout the day.
Babies and pets can be treated by placing the drops in water as above.
Flower Essences should be taken on an empty stomach - at least 30-60
minutes before or after eating. Therefore , it is not advisable to add
the drops to food.
Q: How long does it take to see the
first effects from using Feel Bach! flower essences?
A: This will depend upon the situation. When taking
Feel5ive for a specific stress situation, the effect will be immediate.
In an acute situation such as trouble with colleagues, you should
feel a clear harmonizing effect or a healing crisis within 2 or 3
days. If neither develops, it is wise to reevaluate the combination
of Flowers. When treating chronic behavior patterns that have taken
years to develop, it may take 2 or 3 weeks for you to feel the effects.
Q: What is a "healing crisis?"
A: A healing crisis is your body's reaction to the
process of cleansing and removal of waste on the physical, emotional,
or mental levels. The old patterns, habits, feelings and memories
act as toxins in our bodies and detoxification creates a period of
crisis for the body. Thus, you may feel worse for a short period as
these deep-rooted problems are released. The more serious the problem,
the more likelihood of experiencing a healing crisis - but this is
a good sign, one to be welcomed.
Q: My husband is in a state of depression
and is resistant to any of my suggestions to find help. Could I help
him by sneaking a formula such as "Get Hope Back" into his
A: Unfortunately, no. "Heal
Thyself" is one of the principles of Bach Flower therapy, and
therefore adults using the flowers must be receptive to their energies.
The only exception would be in a crisis situation where Feel5ive (or
other flowers / combinations) could be used as a form of first aid.
Small children and pets - who are not responsible for themselves -
can be successfully treated without their knowledge.
Q: Is it possible to change a child's
character and personality through the use of Bach Flowers?
A: No, Bach Flowers will strengthen
your child's connection to Inner Guidance and make him better able
to adapt to a situation or environment. They will not make a lively
child quiet nor transform a naturally reserved and private child into
an outgoing "leader of the group."

Q: Will I need to keep using Bach Flower
Remedies indefinitely, as with prescription drugs?
A: No, treatment is finished at the point when you
have a clear sense of not needing the Flower Essences any longer.
You may discontinue use unconsciously, as in forgetting to take them,
because you will intuitively "know" when your cure has been
effected. Children also know when they no longer need the flower essences,
so pay attention and discontinue use when the child becomes resistant.
You, of course, will also know by your child's behavior. In contrast
to drugs, which merely mask a problem, Flower Essences work on an
energy level to remove the imbalance that caused the problem.
