Dr. Oz Recommends Rescue Remedy

Rescue Remedy is miraculous formula for combating the simple stresses of daily life. Dr. Oz is keen to acknowledge the importance of reducing our daily stress levels. This is the second time in 2013 that Dr. Oz has recommended Rescue Remedy. This simple formula is composed of 5 different flower remedies. The 5 flower remedies that make up Rescue Remedy are:

Impatiens: this remedy treats impatience and mental tension

Cherry Plum: this remedy helps you feel more in control when you are under tension and stress

Clematis: this remedy keeps you grounded and focused

Rock Rose: this remedy helps us stay centered under stress

Star of Bethlehem: this remedy soothes the frazzled nerves and restores inner peace

Because stress can overtake us at unexpected times I always suggest my customers carry a bottle of Rescue Remedy with them. Some of my customers like to keep a bottle at work and one at home. Rescue Remedy is also wonderful for children, if you have kids and your child is in a hyper state a little Rescue Remedy will calm them down. Simply add a four drops to water or juice.

The Rescue Remedy formula has been used for over 90 years by millions of people around the world. It was originally designed to treat acute trauma but many people, Dr. Oz included are finding it helpful for the ravages of daily stress. By maintaining a daily regime of peace and calm you prevent the body from releasing damaging stress hormones. Which over time lower immunity and ruin peace of mind.

Bach Flower Remedies and Sexuality

At the time Dr. Bach created flower essences, sexuality was not a widely discussed topic. Now sexuality plays a more prominent role in the discussion of health and well being. A healthy relationship to our sexuality makes a vast improvement on the quality of life. Simply because sex and sexuality are such highly charged topics. There is a need to approach it with dignity and care so healing can occur if there has been wounding. Healing wounds around sexuality takes time and awareness because  there is charged emotional component to sex and sexuality.

Bach Flower Remedies and Sexuality

Guilt and Shame
Common in today’s world is the association of sex with sin, of sex with being dirty or unclean. We are simultaneously repulsed by sex as well as being drawn to it because sex is taboo. This is a contradiction, a place in our psyche that needs balance and reconciliation.  For the equation of sex with guilt and sin there are two main Bach remedies, Crab Apple and Pine.

Crab apple is for the unclean feeling that some people feel after sex and towards sex. Crab apple flower remedy will help to purify your emotional field and clear feelings of uncleanliness around sex as an act. It will also help heal your relationship to sex and help you feel more at ease with your sexuality.

Pine helps to cleanse the mind of guilt and shame based thinking. It is especially good for those who come from a religious background where sex and guilt are bunched together. Pine flower essence helps to free us from guilt and shame based thinking, it will help you find freedom form these feelings. And, this will lead to greater states of sexual enjoyment.

Performance Anxiety and Erectile Dysfunction
The Bach flower remedy Larch is particularly helpful for men who suffer from impotence due to lack of confidence or shyness. This can be helpful for ‘performance anxiety’ when combined with the Bach remedy Mimulus. Larch is also helpful for erectile dysfunction can be combined with Wild Rose as well.

Healing from Trauma
Star of Bethlehem is a soothing remedy that helps to clear trauma from the system. This Bach remedy is helpful for those who are the victims of sexual violence. Rock rose can also be helpful in this case, as well as Cherry Plum if there are thoughts of suicide.

To help clear blocks in sexual energy due to past trauma or abuse Rock Water can be useful. It can also help to free blockages that prevent us from experience pleasure.

Issues of Control
For those who use love and sex to as a tool of emotional control Chicory flower essence is indicated.

Vine and Vervain can also be consider here. Vine is for the domineering type and Vervain for the type A personality.

For the shy type, Water Violet can help you to come out of your shell and meet others from an authentic place.

Healthy Boundaries
If boundaries are your issue, Centaury is the essence for you. If you find yourself in situations that are uncomfortable and you find it hard to say “No” Centaury is the essence to assist you with setting clear and healthy boundaries.

Addiction and Masking of True Feelings
For those who with a sex addiction consider Agrimony. Any addiction including sex addiction can be a way of avoiding deeper feelings. If this is the case Agrimony will be help you come to greater emotional honesty and clarity.

For those who are anxious and uneasy with sex, look to Aspen and Mimulus. If your anxiety is of an unknown origin Aspen, if your anxiety is due to shyness and a certain phobic feeling use Mimulus. Also crab apple would be good here if the anxiety is around cleanliness.

For those who are bitter about love and sex Holly is indicated. Beech is another Bach remedy for those who are bitter towards themselves and others.

Apathy Loss of Sex Drive
For apathy and a loss of the sex drive consider Wild Rose. Along with Wild Rose you may want to look at Olive, Hornbeam as well as Larch. All these essences deal with drive on some level. Wild Rose is useful when apathy is present, Olive for physical exhaustion consider using Olive if you find sex tiring. Hornbeam is also for low energy, particularly when the mind drains physical energy.

These are just some of the ways which Bach flower remedies can be used to heal our relationship to our sexuality. When used with care and proper attention there is much emotional freedom and awareness we can reclaim and this can lead to greater levels of sexual enjoyment and pleasure.

How to use Bach Flowers when un-employed or under employed.
The great thing about flower remedies is that they can be used to address and adjust the emotions we feel around a variety of topics and situations including employment.

So you were laid off and you are looking for work and you want some energetic support, because honestly every bit helps. An uplifted mind, spirit and consciousness can only help. Of course I cannot guarantee you will find employment if you use the remedies but you can at least use them as emotional support tools as you do what you need to in order to find work.

Here are a handful of remedies to give a you boost:

Wild Rose

Cherry Plum

These essences all work with different categories of emotional challenges due to un-employment and the search for a job.  These categories are:

  • Faith

  • Confidence

  • Tenacity

  • Fearlessness

  • Hope

  • Internal Alignment

  • Steadiness

Essences address the internal reality, the feeling states and emotions. And, it is from this place that we create our experience; the frame we give our situation determines our situation on the feeling level. There is an external reality and an internal reality, there are many variables in the external world and to try and control them is a losing battle. But, we do have control over our internal states and that is where our power truly exists, not outside of us. Lets now take a deeper look at how to use the essences to support us for employment.

May the essences support you in your mission and bring the light of hope into the dark, dispel the shadows of doubt and quell fears of the mind.  Dr. Edward Bach had a deep abiding faith and lived his life with providence; may the grace of the remedies he has brought to us infuse your life with similar qualities.
