Flower Essences Can They Rid Symptoms Associated with Autism?

Puzzling Autism SymptomsOur Personal Success With Flower Essences Overcoming Symptoms of Autism

 

My 13 year old daughter Hannah has autism.  Obviously she has really struggled over the years  with her ability to handle stressful situations and her emotions in general.

These issues were holding her back from truly living her life in a meaningful and successful way.  Adding Flower Essences to her supplement regimen has improved her symptoms and outlook dramatically.  Her emotional & psychological functioning, attitude, personality and cognitive abilities have all been improved using these all natural beauties!

In fact for a time I was sending the flower essence blend STUDENT in her water bottles to school everyday.  While I was away in Mexico on vacation, she wasn’t getting any.  My first morning back I forgot to send her STUDENT with her to school.  You know how it is when returning from vacation or holiday – It takes a couple days to get the schedule back on track.

A few hours into the day, I get a phone call from her teacher.  She says to me…  “I don’t know what Hannah’s problem has been today and towards the end of last week.  She is like a totally different child and has COME COMPLETELY UNGLUED!”

I explained to her teacher that I had been out of town. – She doesn’t do well without me.  This was a half truth.  The truth is her symptoms of autism and struggles will flare up when she doesn’t get her supplements but especially her flower essences.

Hannah’s Ongoing Struggle in Math

 

For some bizarre reason Hannah has always struggled in math.  I say for some bizarre reason because she is wickedly smart, creative, highly naturally gifted in music.  She is also extremely logically minded.  When you add in her photographic memory you would expect her to test off the charts in math…  Right?!  One would think.

I am absolutely convinced that the flower essence GARDENIA was the reason for Hannah’s ability to meet her CRCT in Math.  We started her on it (on and off) last year which she met the math standard testing taking a modified test for the first time.  This year she met and took the regular test and is gaining a little ground!  She exceeds on the CRCT for all other subjects.

How Do You Know It is the Flower Essences & Not Supplements?

 

This is a valid question!  I always get asked this by my friends in the autism community.  The older the girls get the harder it is to get them to take their supplements consistently.

For Hannah it is not an issue of her not being able to or not wanting to swallow pills.  She will swallow up to a handful at a time individually (without water even!)  They eat at strange times – They hole up in their rooms like hermits.  It can be difficult to keep them on a regimen of taking supplements consistently.

Oddly, this doesn’t happen with the flower essences.  They want to take them.  In fact every time one of them gets hurts the first thing they reach for is the PEACE.  I think with the flower essences they FEEL  an immediate change.  This isn’t true with supplements – Although it is!  Don’t expect if you don’t get enough B vitamins EVERY DAY that you can be mentally sharp and emotionally stable!

Which Flower Essences Do You Recommend for Autism?

 

Every time I tell Hannah’s story to friends in the autism community, this is what they all want to know.  It’s been on my heart for the longest time to get all my thoughts posted on the Flower Essences most helpful in autism.

Well I  have finally completed it (at least for now).  I’m sure as we develop and research new flower essences they’ll make the list.  If they are helpful for autistic tenancies we’ll add them to the autism page.

Hopefully, we’ve made it really easy to find by placing it under the label AUTISM.  On this autism page, we will provide links to relevant articles and posts that may be helpful to the autism community.

We have personally used every flower essence described on the page at some point or another.  They all have tremendous value in addressing her autistic symptoms.  It’s just which autism symptoms are most bothersome, hindering, and disabling her at the time.

My Spirit is Happiest When the Sun is Shinning & I’ve Got Flower Blooms in Water!

Newest Blessed Flower Essence Originalsd Flower Essence OriginalsWhat started out as just any old regular errand this morning turned into a beautiful and awesome opportunity for growing our product line!  Don’t you just love when things like that happen?  You know… when there are major blessings in things you were kind of dreading or viewed as a complete time waster.  It is times like those when you SEE GOD’s hand in your life.

My parents went out of town on an extended trip to Cancun Mexico.  They left us home to take care of business.  I had to go check our business mailbox to pick up a check from a home buyer.  We have a real estate business that we manage as well…  What can I say I am a full on Vervain!

Anyway, I had to literally pass by their house on the way so I decided to stop in and check on their cat, Sally.  Sally does NOT like to be left alone.  Unlike most cats who could care less if people are present or not, she is highly social (Heather type & meows constantly to prove it)  & holds grudges for leaving her alone (total Willow picture).

When I pulled in their driveway, I was greeted with some gorgeous New Guinea Impatiens that were absolutely beautiful.  Also, within sight were somekind of variation wild rose in full bloom & making the driveway look like it were covered in pink snow.  I spent more time collecting some awesome flower blooms and other gorgeous fall plants then I did with Sally.  Sorry Sally!

I found 2 kinds of Coleus which is a favorite fall plant of mine.  Also, the purple Pennisetum  which is an ornemental grass known as ‘Fireworks’.  I love the stuff and can’t wait to see what it feels like!

BFE’s Single Flower Essence Originals

Blessed Flower Essences’

Original Single Remedies

 

If you can’t tell, we have a great appreciation for the beauty of flowers and plants. However, we have an even greater passion and love for the healing found in their essences. We believe God meets us where we are in a very literal way. You probably have a plethora of healing in your own back yard!

Our very first original creation came out of Dr. Nofziger’s personal garden and is her favorite flower… the Gardenia. The fluffy purity of the petals next to the deep gorgeous green makes the white really pop! Not to mention, the smell of Gardenia is truly divine. It has since become one of our family’s favorite flower essences. Dr. Nofziger believes it might be possible that “smelly flowers” offer additional virtues that aren’t found in ones that aren’t fragrant.

Since falling in love with Gardenia, we’ve become obsessed with collecting, studying and creating powerful multi-chord remedies of all sorts of flowers. Our growing single flower essence line includes some of the most common, interesting or beautiful flowers we can find.

Soon we will be offering a Flower Essence Fan Membership Club. It will most likely start with quarterly offerings. Then grow into monthly offering as our library and body of research grows. Like BFE on Facebook to keep up with new flower essence originals, special offers & give-aways!

Blessed With Sunshine & 2 New Fabulous Flower Essences!

Hosta_Flower_EssenceWe’ve had our rainy season late this year in Metro Atlanta.  The lack of sunny days had me behind in the collection and study of some new flower essences.  A couple plants are in bloom around our yard.  Because of the rain, I was beginning to think I might miss making these particular essences entirely this year.  What a sad thought 🙁

In our front yard the Hostas are in full bloom.  I never gave much thought to the flower blooms on the Hostas before.  Now that I’ve developed such a love & appreciation of flower essences, I really look at those GLORIOUS BLOOMS!   Now whenever I see a flower, it always has me wondering what does this one’s essence do…?!?

Meyer-Lemon-Flower-EssenceThen I noticed we had one amazing gorgeous bloom on our Meyer Lemon tree in our back yard.  It was a recent gift from my Father-in-Law.   I didn’t know how long before it produced anything worthwhile.  Here I thought I was waiting for the fruit when there was something just as special if not more so in its floral display.

However, I only found the Meyer Lemon Bloom late in the day so I couldn’t capture it until the next day to make a new essence with it.  I was so excited about this find I even brought my daughter Hannah out to look at it too – It was that pretty.  All of this had me literally praying for sunshine!  With only one flower bloom to work with my window of opportunity was narrow.  If we got one heavy summer shower that had been plaguing us recently, my chances to make a new essence would be dead in the water!

The Lord granted my sunny day today!  I’ve been able to capture the Meyer Lemon Essence.  I’m even more excited about trying this one than I was with the Hosta.  Only because it was not only a lovely flower but it also smelled like candy.  It smelled even sweeter than honeysuckle!  I hope to actually make the essence today and begin its study by tonight.

I even shot a couple video clips on how to make the essences & do the collecting.  I haven’t look at them yet much less edit the videos.  Hopefully, I’ll find the time to get them up on YouTube soon.

Because of these last couple days of sunshine, I was able create & begin studying the new Hosta Flower Essence.  It was finished up a couple days ago on Friday.  We all LOVED it.  Oh it makes my spirit love sunshine all the more…

Sick, Tired & Exhausted?

Feeling fatigued, tired, exhausted, drained or just sapped of energy?  Let’s face it… we all experience exhaustion and fatigue at some point in our lives.

Olive is Dr. Edward Bach’s energetic, renewal & regeneration flower essence remedy.  It can quickly take someone from total & complete physical and or mental FATIGUE, exhaustion & weariness to strength, vitality, vigor, renewed interest & FEELING energized.

It is also good for burnout, feeling drained mentally or physically.  It is great in times of chronic and constant worry and stress!

Why You Are SO TIRED…

Some of the most likely causes of exhaustion and fatigue could be that WE

  • Get Sick, Stressed Out or Worry
  • Have Nutritional Deficiencies
  • Have Parasitic Infestations or Infections
  • Are Overly Toxic
  • Over Stimulate Ourselves
  • Over Committee Our Schedules
  • Don’t Eat Right or Have Poor Digestion
  • Have Hormonal Imbalances
  • Don’t Get Enough Rest, Relaxation or Playtime

It is nice to have a natural remedy that helps address chronic fatigue no matter the cause.  One that is safe to use with children, pets, the elderly or the frail.  You could even use on wilted plants that need a pick-me-up.  Olive is featured in several of our Flower Essence Blends for that exact reason.

The Olive Flower Essence can be found in these popular combination products:

Try the Olive Bach Flower Essence individually or blended with other flower essences and see if you aren’t more energized, naturally.  As another benefit you might also find yourself sleeping better!  No wired but tired like you can sometimes get with chemical stimulants.

Alcohol in Flower Essences: A Recent Question

?~Q~?   Is There Alcohol in Your Flower Remedies or Just Essences / Energy of Flowers?  

Our flower remedies are imprinted on a base of Distilled Water, 8% Alcohol & Cellfood.  The alcohol used is distilled vodka (Gluten Free made from pineapple).  The Cellfood acts as a cellular carrier which boosts their effectiveness.

Since our remedies are diluted 1-2 drops in (any amount of water), any alcohol would be tasteless & undetectable.  In fact our bodies actually produce more alcohol than would be consumed by using Bach Flowers in this way.

Like all flower essences in alcoholic bases, you can “cook-off” the alcohol.  This is done by adding a couple drops of the remedy to a small amount of boiling water & letting cool.  If you consume the essences straight from the bottle (which is NOT how we recommend taking them), you might get a hint of the taste of alcohol.

Hope this shed some light & was helpful!

Relieving Pain Naturally with Bach Flower Remedies

Using the Bach flower essence remedies for pain relief in my house keeps me busy playing Doctor Mom… seems like ALL the time!  I usually use the body mapping as tested and outlined by Dietmar Krämer.  This information can be found in the book New Bach Flower Body Maps: Treatment by Topical Application.  It includes a comprehensive atlas of body maps indicating treatment zones for each flower essence and areas of the body.

In our growing experience with using these techniques, we have found his body maps to be spot-on accurate.  They are a great starting point for using flower essences topically for treating pain, swelling, and acne.

Muscle testing is another fantastic way to “work up” which are the right Bach flower remedy or remedies to use to alleviate pain, detoxify certain parts of the body or clear energetic blockages.

I had to use the body mapping techniques just this morning on my husband.  When he sneezed (major pollen season in Georgia) I heard him wincing in pain.  I knew something was up…  My husband is not a big ole baby!  As a matter of fact, I am always yelling at him for turning things over or pulling them off the grill without gloves or utensils!  He’s so crazy when it comes to pain.  Most of the time he has no idea how he got cuts, scrapes or bruises.  You know the manly man type!

It seems last night he pulled the muscles in his neck and shoulder big time.  He got up from his chair and “Bitty Kitty”, our thin and most dainty cat moved in on his spot.  She loves the cushions in our kitchen chairs and she especially loves them after someone has been sitting in them and they are still warm.  When Darren went back to his seat, he tensed up to keep from crushing her.  I didn’t realize last night it was as bad as it was.

After one application of the flower essences mixed with plain lotion applied gently to the painful area, most of his pain, soreness & stiffness was GONE!  To this he reminded me “You are my favorite GOOD Witch.”  He is always joking about “Nobody doing the Voodoo like YOU DO!”  If anything I try to be an angel of mercy relieving pain and suffering wherever I find it.  Believe me I don’t ever have to go looking far to find it!

I have used this body mapping technique time after time for so many painful issues like…  Muscle Aches, Menstrual Cramps, Lower Back Aches, Painful Feet, Bursitis, Tendonitis, Headaches, Acne, Arthritic Knees and too many other “Boo-Boo’s” to count.  I am never less than impressed if not shocked by how quick and effective it is!

In fact, we’ve found them so usefully that I am really considering making a line based on body parts.  I was inspired after hearing the kiddy song…  “Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes”.  Isn’t it funny how we get inspiration in the goofiest of places or such random past experiences?!

Oxygen Does a Body Good!

Air is the most vital substance for a healthy body!  Don’t believe me? – Here’s a FACT… You can go 40 DAYS or more without FOOD. You can go 7 to 10 DAYS without WATER. You can ONLY go a matter of MINUTES without VITAL OXYGEN!

Oxygen fuels our systems. It fires our bodies’ chemical reactions. Oxygen is necessary for circulation. It helps eliminates our wastes and toxins. Not to mention, many disease causing parasitic microbes like bacteria, yeast and fungus can’t survive in an oxygen rich environment.

Cellfood enhances the critical bioavailability of oxygen to the body. It does it through its unique ability to ‘dissociate’ water molecules within the body; thereby releasing abundant oxygen, and hydrogen, directly to the cells.

In our home… We believe every glass of water is the opportunity to bring in essential nutrients, oxygen and healing instructions by the use of flower essences and cellfood.

Flower Essences – FAQ’s

How often should I take flower essences?

Most practitioners advise to take flower remedies about 4 times a day.  However, I personally believe every drop of water (or any other liquid you may be drinking) has the potential of bringing health, healing, restoration, renewal, positive mindsets, straightened priorities, clarity, confidence & courage when essences are present!  So why then should they be reserved for only 4 times a day?!  Every water pitcher, bottle or glass I fill has flower essences and or other vibrational remedies.

Can your single flower essences be used to make custom remedies?

Absolutely! –  Blessed Flower Essences’ single remedies can be used as “stock” or “mother” essences.  They can make countless custom blended remedies.  It is one reason we urge people to invest in single kits.  However, great care should be given to ensure they are prepared properly.

Are there a maximum number of single remedies I can take at the same time?

Bach Centre in England recommends a maximum of 7 single flower essences in a custom remedy treatment bottle.  Personally, I believe there is no harm in using too many essences but there could be consequences if someone is not getting the right one(s).  I have a few combinations that have 8 essences.  As a general rule, I try to keep them under 7 essences.  When I use muscle testing, which is frequently, only 5-7 Flower Essences come up and address many issues beautifully.    So I guess it is a fine line between making sure you have enough without diluting (or muffling) some of the instructions.

I don’t drink a lot of water – Can I add flower essences to other drinks?

Nothing is a substitute for pure water!  To ensure tissues don’t get overly acidic and to keep organs functioning optimally it requires proper hydration.  Every person needs at least ½ their body weight in ounces per day in REGULAR INTERVALS.  Cells can only hold up to 5-6 ounces at a time.  Think of this as sand holding water after the tide.  It can only hold so much before it becomes flooded.  Therefore, I recommend sipping 4-5 ounces every 20-30 minutes.

Many people are dehydrated even though they consume enough ounces per day.  They might drink 12-16 ounces once they become thirsty every 3-4 hours.  When the body is in starvation mode it will hold on to fat.  It will do the same thing when dehydrated – It will hold on to water.

All that being said I am also a realist.  If you drink other beverages it is still an opportunity to bring in the flower essences!  If you are someone who has difficulties having one (or more) too many alcoholic drinks try adding crave to them & see if helps you from overindulging!  In our family we juice a lot & drink smoothies everyday so essences can also be added to these liquid meals.  Flower remedies boost the medicinal effects of herbal teas tremendously.  We also add them to baths, lotions, shampoo, conditioners, and facial masks or just about everything else the flower essences can be easily mixed with.

Is it ok to take more than one combination flower remedy at the same time?

It is not uncommon for me to take multiple flower essence combinations in the same DAY.  However, I don’t mix them at the same time.  Here’s why…  The energetic vibrations in flower remedies act as healing messages to the body.  If you give too many instructions at the same time it loses some of its clarity.  Think of this as voices in a crowd – The more people speaking the harder it is to hear!

Here’s an example of how using the flower essence combinations might be done throughout a typical day…  Fatigue, Alert or Transition might be a good choice in your first glass of water of the day.  Everyone should be taking in water soon upon waking anyway.  Then if you’re off to work you might choose Professional.  Or if you’re off to class so you might go with Student.  If you’ve had a really stressful day when you get home you might take Peace, Stress or Family Bliss to help unwind.  You might sip on some sleep at bedtime in water warm milk or herbal tea.

We almost always pass Family Bliss around when doing chores on the weekend.  When someone in our family gets hurt they sip on some Peace.  When someone receives some bad news we take Grief.

I’ve heard flower essence remedies can be used for muscle aches and pains?

I have had tremendous results with flower essences reducing aches and pain.  Peace would always be my go to for any type of pain.  Another good choice might be Forgiveness as it deals with rigidity, flow and hardness issues.  I find flower remedies especially helpful when using body mapping and / or muscle testing for determining the right essences to apply.  It usually requires only 1 or 2 applications for immediate and lasting results!

I would also look into other underlying causes like poor digestion & nutritional deficiencies as a source of the pain.  Deficiencies like calcium, magnesium and/or potassium are the most likely culprits for pain.  Also, if there are excessive acids in the tissues that can definitely add to aches, muscle soreness and pain.

Blessings & Healing For 2 Dogs & 1 Family

Others Are Saying About Our Flower Essences

Here is another wonderful testimony about several products.  I have been meaning to post this one for a while.

Dr. Darla

I am sorry I did not think to write this sooner 🙂  I have had really good results with the Grief and Stress when I alternate shots – especially when I am pulling my hair out over something one of the kids has done. 🙂  I am sure you can relate.

I wanted to share with you a story about my dogs.  Several weeks back, Oscar had some severe intestinal problems resulting in blood in his stool.  I took him to the vet and they treated him with several different prescriptions.  He did not seem to be getting better so I asked Lori Goodwin, my holistic practitioner, to check him and see what she recommended for him.

She recommended several different supplements, one of which was the All Better Flower Essence.  The very first time I went to add it to the water bowl, Maggie nearly attacked me trying to get to the water.  Maggie is not a small dog and weighs about 55 pounds, so her jumping up on me was quite noticeable! 🙂  As soon as I put the bowl down, she immediately drank a large amount.  It was not that she was just thirsty because they get fresh water several times a day, there was something she was needing in the flower essences.  Maggie was not even sick, that I know of, but she clearly wanted some component of the All Better flower remedy.

She continued to do this for nearly a week and then one day, she did not seem to care anymore.  I am not sure what she was needing in the All Better, but she seemed to benefit from it. Oscar is also doing better and doesn’t have the intestinal problems anymore.  So, you helped both of my dogs! 🙂

Thanks for combining several essences into one product to target specific complaints.  I keep All Better, Stress, Sleep, Student and Grief on hand and purchase a new bottle when the volume of any of them becomes low.

Thanks for helping me with my furbabies as well as with my human family members. 🙂  Please feel free to share this story with others if you like!
Melissa
