The Basics of Bach Flower Remedies

kfurzespencerKathy Furze-Spencer will show us how to manage stress with Bach Flower essences on Thursday, October 20 at 6:30.

Long before anti-anxiety medications, anti-depressant medications and mood altering pharmaceuticals, there were Bach Flower Essences. The most widely used over the counter stress reliever in history is Rescue Remedy, sold all over the world in health food stores as well as national drug store chains and even pet supply stores. Rescue Remedy contains 5 Bach Flower Essences, but do know what each one does individually?

There are a total of 38 Bach Flower Essences each working with aspects of our personalities that escalate in times of stress and crisis. From fear, to overwhelming mental fatigue; from hatred to impatience; from bully behavior to apathy; the combinations in creating personal formulas from the essences are almost limitless to help bring back a state of balance. And let’s be honest; no one is immune from emotional imbalance.

In this class we will learn the fascinating history of Dr. Edward Bach, the developer of Bach Flower Essences and why he chose the path of natural medicine despite a successful career as a well-respected MD. We will go over each of the 38 essences and how they can help you manage stress. Fun as well as very informative, this class will help you see parts of your personality (and those of your family and friends) that become hyper-agitated when under stress, and the simple way to address the situation by creating a Personal Formula of essences.

What will you take away besides an understanding of how to manage your stress druglessly? You will get a personal checklist to help you point out specific emotional qualities that are hot-spots for you and a night of enlightening fun as we look at ourselves in a different way.
