Dr Bach Flower Remedies - Bach Flower Essences

What are the Bach Flower Remedies?

The Dr Bach Flower Remedies have a long-standing following and there's good reasons for that.

Dr Bach discovered 38 remedies, each for a specific emotional and mental state. They take effect by treating the individual, not the disease or the symptoms of the disease. They work specifically on the emotional condition of the person concerned. Insofar as we all have an emotional brain, there's a good chance we might respond to the flower remedies, some people probably more than others. My experience shows that people who have a tight grip on their emotions tend not to react immediately to the them, but with perseverance eventually benefit greatly from the energies they exert. It's like nourishing rain coming after a period of dryness, watching the mental landscape come alive again with green and colourful vegetation. If that sounds a bit lyrical, I'm sorry, but life is strange!

It's well worth noting that the effects of taking the remedies is not to suppress negative attitudes but to transform them into positive ones, stimulating one's own potential for self-healing and freeing the physical system to engage fully in fighting disease and stress. The tighter a person has a lid on their emotions, the more interesting their reaction! They are great balancers of the mind, often working away in the background.

If we quickly add that the Bach Flower Remedies have no adverse effects, we should however be aware that they can allow suppressed symptoms to surface. These could include such things as rashes while the body is being cleared of toxins, or an awareness of emotions which have been denied expression. These are an important part of the healing process and are only temporary.

The Bach Flower Remedies can be taken alongside medication, including homoeopathic remedies, without any interference at all.

Whey Protein has the highest Biological Value of any natural protein (BV is the most widely used method for measuring protein quality), it is higher than eggs, fish and meat. Many whey protein powders go through processes such as ion exchange and microfiltration - these are low temperature processes, which filter off the fat and lactose leaving the protein - also hydrolysation, which makes the whey easier to digest.

There doesn’t seem a day that vitamin D3 isn't in the news: bone health, protection against osteoporosis, immune system, Alzheimer's disease, insulin secretion, influenza, mood, cardiovascular, rickets, blood pressure regulation, and generally keeping disease at bay.

The primary source of vitamin D in the body is produced by the action of ultra violet radiation from the sun on the skin. As a result of this reliance on sun exposure, vitamin D levels fluctuate throughout the year and studies have identified deficiency as a widespread problem, possibly linked to people spending more time indoors, applying sunscreen and generally avoiding sun exposure.

Scientists have proposed that the lack of sun exposure (vitamin D) in the winter may be linked with the increased risk of cold and influenza infections during these months. Since soaking up sunshine hasn’t been a reality in the UK or in hot climates (such as Dubai and other Middle-Eastern countries where covering up is important, a simple supplement may help.

Now Solgar have produced a new HIGHER LEVEL of VITAMIN D3 4000IU in recognition of the body's extra need for this important vitamin.

Harriet Wild playing Ode To Joy with two recorders up her nose

How's this for a remarkable feat, challenging the bounds of human nostril endurance. Below is a video of Harriet Wild, an ex-Elixir employee, presently working at the Eden Project in Cornwall, deftly playing Beethoven's Ode To Joy, through her nose.

If you like the skill of this lass, "like" her on YouTube!

P.S, Knowing Harriet well, it's no coincidence her recorders are themed in colour with her outfit. Only the best for YouTube audiences!
