Flower Essences in Alert Saves Family Pet – Our Yorkie Poo Bella!

This story of healing & restoration with flower essences begins with taking Bella…  our adorable and much loved puppy girl to the vet for a teeth cleaning.  No big deal right?  Well apparently they have to put them under general anesthesia to do it.  I didn’t think too much of it.

When I went to pick up Bella from the vet that evening after they had her all day the vet tells me…  “She’s still a little drowsy and probably will be the rest of the night.”  Again I didn’t give it too much thought.  I drive home with her head down on my lap the entire time.  Which is VERY uncharacteristic as she is usually a least a little nervous to drive anywhere.

When I arrive home with her about 20 minutes later, and put her down for the first time… I couldn’t believe the condition she was in!  She was stumbling around, walking in circles, falling over, clearly dizzy and looks drunk!

For several hours I try to keep her still but as time goes by its time I need to get the family fed and laundry finished.  Also, Sarah, my daughter had a small cold and really needed my attention as well.

Poor pitiful little Bella normally this vibrant high strung cute yorkie-poo (Yorkshire Terrier & Poodle Mix) was in such sorry shape.  She tries to follow me from room to room collapsing or falling on the floor in total exhaustion.

At this point I am seriously considering taking her to the emergency after hours vet clinic.  This was WAY beyond a little drowsy!  She didn’t seem to be getting any better.  So at first I consider giving her some activated charcoal to help soak up some of the drugs.  But I know that would mean her eating which she wasn’t interested in and will take TOO LONG!  She NEEDS HELP NOW!

I decide to try some ALERT with her.  Immediately after rubbing a couple drops directly onto her coat, she perks up and starts licking my face.  I am so glad Sarah was there to record this event even though it is poor quality footage and filmed sideways.

I love using the flower essences with animals and pets! To see their behavior & personality change so quickly in a dog who can’t possibly pretend to just try to please you. I don’t think the “placebo effect” can come into play when using essences on pets & young children. They don’t have the higher thinking for psychosomatic cause & effect.  The mind over matter phenomenon wouldn’t apply.

Bella gets as excited about getting flower essences as other dogs get excited about BACON!  It is so funny – You just need to start walking towards her with one of the bottles & the tail just starts wagging! – Or gives her the “waggly-nub” as the family calls it.

This experience made me wonder if alert could provide relief or possibly even save lives in cases of drug overdoses.  If I hadn’t seen the immediate change in her with my own eyes I would not have believed it!

Why Our Family Loves the Flower Essences in Anxiety!

Carefree & Enjoying Life ImageI am not usually one to be anxious or nervous. However, the day I finally had my bankruptcy court, I woke with my stomach in knots.

The first time I was scheduled for court it was SNOWED OUT! Being from Metro-Atlanta, GA when it snows Metro goes nowhere & completely shuts down! Needless to say, it was the climax of such an anxious, disappointing and stressful time.

The morning of, my brain kept wanting to imagine every possible negative outcome. It was feeding on fear, misconceptions, and assumptions. I KNEW everything was going to be alright but it didn’t ~FEEL~ that way! I had butterflies, a dry mouth, sweaty palms the whole bit. It didn’t take me long to realize the flower essences in Anxiety might just provide the grace I needed to get through it!

After adding them to my water, just that quickly, I was completely at peace. I was able to get plenty done and be fully productive that morning instead of stewing in the fear drivenWhat Ifs” & worry of the unknown. I really enjoyed the beautiful unseasonable warm weather that early February day and the drive down town.  I’m not a huge fan of having to go to unknown places in downtown Atlanta.

I didn’t hit PANIC mode when my GPS dumped me several blocks from the courthouse! I didn’t sweat it when the automated parking machine finally decided on the THIRD TIME to work! I didn’t totally freak out when I had to stop and ask for directions TWICE! Of course to add insult to injury, I was NOT in walking shoes.

Like most people, I have real issues with feeling lost…? I didn’t have a complete melt down after getting stopped by security when I finally got to the courthouse because of the pepper spray on my key chain. I didn’t have a minute to spare! Did I mention that being late is about the only thing that does trigger anxiety for me? I didn’t come completely unglued when they tell me… “Here fill out this form so you can check your keys”! Please Mr. Security Man… Don’t you know I’m already late?

As I look back on the story now, it feels more stressful to me now! 🙂 I know that I know there is NO WAY I could have kept my cool through the series of stressful events without the flower essence blend — Anxiety. I can honestly say I enjoyed the day in spite of the drama & heartache it brought.

Sarah, one of our sweet and smart daughters LOVES this flower essence blend when she’s got to give an oral presentation! She’s notices a huge difference with getting over her fear, shyness and nervousness.
