My Experience with Bach Flower Remedies

I’ve been working with the remedies for about a year now. Please don’t ever come off any medication if you decide to try them. They provide wonderful support for different emotional states and allow you to work through energetic blockages which may be detrimental to your health and wellbeing.ID-100126946

Fast Relief: Some remedies I have found to act very quickly, others seem to take a week or two. I took Gorse and Mustard with Cherry Plum when I was in a deep depression and found relief within a day or two!!! This is such a wonderful thing to find as anti-depressants often take weeks to begin to work. They lifted my mood enough for me to see where I needed to make changes in my life- even little ones. Before I was taking the remedies, I think I’d pretty much given up trying to get better, even with all the medication!

If you’re at the end of your tether with depression- give them a try!!!! You never know they might just work for you too!!

    You’re lucky that the remedies worked so quickly for you. They can often take weeks to work, especially if you have been in a particular emotional state for a long time.

      Yes I was lucky! I do think remedies work differently for different people- allopathic meds do after all. I definitely find that some remedies work more quickly than others. Rescue Remedy always works very quickly.
      Mainly though my mood states are fairly quick to come and go anyway- so if I feel my mood dipping I’ll start on Mustard or Gorse quickly, to prevent deepening of mood.
