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.

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?!

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.

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!

3rd Party Product Review

Welcome to the MotherhoodSeveral months ago we submitted 3 of our products to an Independent 3rd party reviewer – Welcome to the Motherhood.  No monetary exchange occurred in exchange for the writing of their review.  The views expressed in this review are completely unbiased and strictly that of the reviewer.

Here are a couple of quotes taken directly from that review:

About Family Bliss, Hil’Lesha, the reviewer, writes…  I can see how this product will work for someone who is dealing with stress within their family, because I feel calm, clear-headed, and together when I use this product.”

About Peace, she wrote…  “He also doesn’t seem like he is as stressed out by it like he was at first. Perhaps, this product has been working after all.”

Lastly, Stress, was also well received with… “Thankfully, there are products like this that will help ease the problem(s) by restoring calmness, patience, stability, and rationality that you’ll need in any situation. I believe that it’s helpful, because I feel much calmer and peaceful these days even though I have everyday worries like everyone else out there. While it doesn’t magically make a situation disappear, it does make things much more tolerable.”

Nothing is more satisfying to us than truly making a difference in people’s lives.  Especially children who are unable to voice, understand, or change their struggles.

We want to extend a sincere Thank You to Hil’Lesha for taking the time to use our products with her family and report her findings on Welcome to the Motherhood.

Pain, Pain Go Away… Peace to the Rescue Again!

Here is another great story & testimony about how good Peace is for pain management

So I dropped a salad dressing bottle right on my big toe.  It was one of those hopping around moments, wincing, moaning, muttering, throbbing, throbbing can’t focus on anything – You know one of those that just bloody HURTS moments!  On a scale of 1 to 10 I’d give it about a 9.  BTW for the record I have a really high tolerance for pain too.  It both bruised the bone & abraded the skin.  One of those times when you seriously ask yourself  “Did I just break my foot?!”

I have to hobble to the girl’s room to get my bottle of Peace.  Anytime they have a boo-boo or they get grumpy with each other they use it.  So basically it usually stays in their room!  I fix up some water with the Blessed Flower Essence – Peace and drink it.  It brings my pain down to probably a 6 but I still can’t focus on much else.  Next I pour some of the water directly on my foot and immediately it goes to a 1 maybe a 2!  Ahhhaaah…  Relief – Thank you Lord!  At that point I was able to bend and flex it to see if a fracture was likely…  Good I can bend and move it without adding too much pain.

You would think by now I would be used to the healing power of the flower essences but they always surprise me.  I just wanted to take a second to sing their praises!
