How do I pick the best remedy for me?
Pick the formula that most relates to your feelings and emotional state overall, at the moment. If some of the symptoms listed do not pertain to you, the formula will still be effective in treating the symptoms you do have. An inappropriate remedy will not hurt or cause adverse reaction. (If you have had a trauma in your past, please read about Foundational Remedies).
Trauma can create blockages to healing and even prevent flower remedies from working, so it is important to start with the remedies that will best support you as you heal old wounds.
If you have had a trauma or grief, however long ago, and have never been the same since, you must start with one of the Foundational Remedies.
Choose one of the Foundational Formulas and take one bottle as directed. All of the Foundational remedies contain essences to heal old trauma, grief and shock. Find the Foundational Formula that is the closest match to the specific way your old wounds are manifesting.
Whole Hearted: This is the best one to start with if you have had grief, loss, abandonment, sad childhood or have never recovered from a broken relationship.
In Love: For chronic relationship problems, trust issues, low self esteem, fear of abandonment, codependence or or inability to be open to love. (In Love is very similar to WholeHearted. If you relate to both WholeHearted and In Love, start with WholeHearted then follow up with In Love).
Moon River: Mood swings due to hormonal issues (postpartum, PMS, menopause and peri-menopause)
Sunshine: Past grief and trauma leading to depression, social isolation or apathy.
Beauty Formula No. 7: Feelings of unattractiveness, self criticism, guilt and lack of confidence, comparing your self to others.
Safe and Sound: Panic attacks, anxiety
I Will: This was designed for those who have chronic illness and who have become exhausted and lost their will to get better. Part of their trauma is the illness itself, hearing the diagnosis and all the treatments they have to endure. I Will may also be used if a situation in your life has depleted your life force to the extent that you don’t feel you have the will or strength to leave.
First Aid Kit: This is the one everyone should have on hand for times emergencies. Dr. Bach’s original “Rescue” formula (plus Crab Apple and Walnut) neutralizes recent trauma and has an immediately calming and grounding effect. Whereas you take your every day formula four times a day for one month, First Aid Kit is to be used as needed during emergencies, extreme emotional stress or for situations that are infrequent but intense (fear of flying, public speaking, etc.).
PLEASE DON’T USE MORE THAN ONE AT A TIME
Please avoid taking more than one formula at a time, as it lessens the effectiveness. (First Aid Kit is the exception and can be taken at any time.)
HOW LONG SHOULD I STAY ON A REMEDY?
In general it is recommended to stay on a formula for one to three months. The rule is that the longer you have had an issue, the longer the treatment is. Everyone heals at a different rate. If you take the formula for your issues and you notice that after a month (one bottle) you feel a change in your emotional state, that means that you have healed a layer and that a new and deeper state is revealing itself. At this time, do a reassessment and change remedies based on your new symptoms/emotional state.
