BACH FLOWERS
There are 38 flower remedies that were discovered by the late Dr. Edward Bach in the
early 1930's.  Since  then they have been used by many prominent medical doctors,
homeopaths and other health care professionals who have reported sucessful treatments
with babies, children, adults and animals.

Bach Flowers can be useful for not only the patient who
has suddenly found out that he or she has scoliosis, it will also help family members deal with the shock and anxiety that often comes with hearing the news.

Rescue Remedy is the most well known bach flower.  It is used worldwide for shock.

Bach flowers work on our emotional states and tend to work over a period of time on a subtle level, therefore they work alongside Bowen Therapy  and other modalities, as they don't interupt the physical healing process that is taking place after a treatment.

Rescue Remedy has been used by wildlife rescuers to take the shock off injured animals.  You can also use it when transplanting plants from one area to the other.  Just put a few drops in a water container and water plant after transplanting.

Bach flowers are totally safe with absolutely no side effects. You could take a full bottle and it would be considered as one dose.
