7 anti aging bach flowers remedies ( Guest post by Dew drop )

The better you feel emotionally, the better your body is able to function. You feel stronger, you have more stamina, you are more flexible, and you are able to relax and sleep well – you feel YOUNGER.

Taking the right Bach Flower Remedy helps you to look and feel younger by reducing stress and anxiety, making you feel more relaxed, happy and at ease in your daily activities. You will find that as you feel better emotionally you will begin to feel better about yourself and in time you will also notice physical changes that reflect your new more positive state of mind.

Take a look at these 7 Anti-Ageing Bach Flowers and see if you can recognize yourself in any (or all) of them. Those that are most likely to help you are the ones that seem to be an obvious match to you, and also those that you feel very strongly are not you are worth looking at too as they may point to a more unconscious pattern. The key is that you will feel quite strongly – either way. Have fun with this as you can not get it wrong, if you choose the “wrong” Bach Flower it will simply not work. I feel that with a little information on Bach Flowers most people know intuitively what will benefit them.

Crab Apple

As we age we can feel that we are no longer perfect, something that a Crab Apple person cannot stand, and so they will make constant (futile) attempts to fix what they see as being wrong. All this stems from lack of self-love. Crab Apple makes it easier to be kinder, more forgiving and loving to yourself. You will no longer feel compelled to try and live up to some impossibly high standard and you will also discover that you are better than you thought!

Honeysuckle

A preoccupation with the past and a feeling that “it was better back then” are clear calls for Honeysuckle. Physically, Honeysuckle will sometimes manifest as fluid retention, constipation, and sagging skin. Can you remember how you felt when you were young? How much time did you spend looking back and reminiscing versus just enjoying life or looking forward eagerly? When you hold onto the past there is less space in your life for the new fresh energy that keeps you youthful. The Bach Flower Essence Honeysuckle helps you to let go of the past – and to focus happily either here and now or forward.

Larch

Self-confidence can diminish with age, but it doesn’t need to. If you feel that you are growing less self-assured with age then Larch will help you to feel more confident in all areas of your life, and when you feel confident, your age becomes irrelevant to you and others.

Vervain

None of us move through life without encountering stress, but some are better than others at letting it go.Vervain is the great stress buster and can relieve muscular tension where it is the result of consistent stress and strain. Vervain will help you to wind down, chill out, and take life a little less seriously. It will also reduce any tendency you may have to be a bit (maybe even a lot) extreme in your focus and activities.

Walnut

Walnut is about change and adjustment, letting go of the old and moving into the new. It will help you to adjust to the changes associated with aging and is especially helpful during age related periods of transition like menopause, retirement, death of parents and children leaving home etc.

Wild Rose

Lack of interest in life and constant fatigue are good indicators that you would benefit from taking Wild Rose. Physically you may see paleness, dark rings under the eyes and lackluster skin. The effect of Wild Rose is energizing, renewing your interest in life. It restores a youthful feeling of positive expectation in what the future will bring and it also brings a welcome increase in physical energy.

Willow

Sagging lines on the face come from sagging thoughts in the mind. Resentment of Life.

Louise Hay, Heal Your Body

This statement clearly points to the Bach Flower Willow, the remedy for resentment, a feeling that other people and life, in general, has treated you unfairly. You may not be able to see this in yourself because these things can be subtle or even almost unconscious. Look carefully at yourself and if you can find even a trace of it in you, consider taking the Bach Flower Willow. Physical Symptoms of a chronic willow state can include lines around the mouth and lower back pain.
Did you recognize even a little of yourself in any of those?

Bach flower for weight loss ( guest post by Dew drop )

Bach flowers for weight loss

Bach Flowers can help you to achieve and maintain a healthy weight by dealing with any emotional issues that could cause you to overeat and sabotage your weight loss attempts. These 5 Bach Flower Remedies for losing weight will not eliminate the need to make some changes with regard to diet and exercise, but they will improve your chances of losing weight and keeping it off permanently.

Agrimony – for comfort eating – using food to soothe emotional upsets . A person who will benefit from Agrimony will look emotionally balanced, cheerful and in control on the surface but will, in fact, be hiding sadness, grief or some other emotional turmoil. They are normally unaware of the negative emotions they are harbouring having found many ways of avoiding them, overeating being one of them.
Signs that you may benefit from taking AgrimonyYou are unhappy with your weight AND

  • You eat compulsively especially after emotional upsets
  • You would rather go home and eat alone than talk about your problems or face them
  • Others describe you as always happy and helpful
  • You are easily distracted from your weight loss goals and find yourself overeating, and yo-yo dieting

Taking Agrimony will help you to begin acknowledging your negative emotions, and releasing them, rather than attempting to suppress them by eating food. Weight loss is inevitable and easy when you are no longer driven by a compulsion to over-eat.

Cherry Plum – One of the Bach Flowers in the Bach Emotional Eating kit, Crab Apple helps with compulsive or binge eating and yo-yo dieting. Cherry Plum relieves feelings of inner tension, but unlike Agrimony the negative emotion is acknowledged and feels more extreme, so that there is a feeling that you might just lose control completely and undo all your good work by bingeing. These feelings are just the natural result of tension that has built up over time from your attempts to control your eating through will-power. Cherry Plum will help you to release the tension and leave you feeling your calm and in control self. Once you have regained your composure it is time to get to the root cause of your Cherry Plum state. Consider the possibility of easing up on your diet a little, because the fact that you are feeling so uptight about it is an indication that you are being too hard on yourself. Holding yourself to an overly high standard nearly always backfires and results in behaviour that takes you in the opposite direction. You can avoid this rebound effect by having more realistic goals and expectations to begin with. It may take a little longer than you would like but you stand a much better chance of reaching your weight loss goals when you are kind to yourself AND you will have more fun along the way .

Cerato – Do you look to others to guide you to your perfect weight? Do you have a mountain of information gathered over years of searching for the perfect weight loss plan? Are you still overweight after trying them all? Then Cerato is the Bach Flower Essence for you. Cerato will give you confidence in your ability to make good decisions regarding your diet and exercise. It will help you to make sensible food choices wherever you are without being influenced by those around you, advertising or any other factors. It will also help you to resist the temptation to try extreme diets for the sake of quick results, and to feel at ease with your weight – no matter what that is.

Chestnut Bud – One of the Bach flowers in the Bach Emotional Eating Kit. This is the Bach Flower for those who try the same sort of approach to weight loss over and over, and still fall into the same old traps that lead to “failure”. Unlike Cerato, Chestnut Bud is unlikely to look to others for guidance, but will tend to rush into action without thinking things through. When attempts to lose weight fail, instead of taking stock and trying to gain insights from their experience Chestnut Bud types prefer to forget about it immediately and move quickly to the next action. Perhaps it is trying too hard and then ending up bingeing and rebounding; perhaps it is not planning ahead so that you have the food you need; perhaps it is joining the gym again and then not going, perhaps it is buying those diet pills that didn’t work last time hoping that this time might be different – if you make the same “mistake” repeatedly then Chestnut Bud is the essence that will help you break that self-destructive cycle. While it is never a good idea to dwell on your failures, it is good to learn from them, and then move on. Chestnut Bud will help a person to slow down enough that they can learn from their experiences and no longer make the same mistakes.

Crab Apple – the physical and emotional cleansing remedy. Crab Apple is one of the 3 Bach Flowers in the Bach Emotional Eating kit.It is so much easier to lose weight or maintain your ideal weight when you feel comfortable with yourself as you are rather than fighting against feelings of unworthiness. You may not think that it is possible to love yourself at your current weight, but until you make peace with where you are you will always find weight loss a struggle. Crab Apple will help you to release any negative thoughts and feelings you have about yourself and restore you to your natural feelings of self-love and self acceptance allowing you to move towards your ideal weight with ease, loving where you are and who you are, every step of the way.
Taking Bach Flowers is one way of making the process of weight loss easier, potentially quicker and definitely more enjoyable. If you take Bach Flowers as you lose weight you will not only feel lighter in your physical body at the end of it, but also lighter in your spirit too.
