If there’s a health issue affecting my family I prefer to go the natural, holistic route first and see where we are. With regard to things that factor into our days I do my best to keep us organized as to avoid stress however, as the saying goes “The best-laid plans of mice and men all go awry” and *boom* the heart is pumping, the mind is flustered and a bit of anger might creep in. Years ago I found a product that has not only helped me in times of stress but helped my teenage daughter’s with anxiety – Dr. Bach’s original flower RESCUE Remedy. (See coupon offer at bottom of post.)
Made in Switzerland, created by Dr. Edward Bach, RESCUE Remedy contains Rock Rose, Impatiens, Clematis, star of Bethlehem and Cherry Plum, specifically blended to help you face daily stresses or emergency situations in a better frame of mind. My purse usually has a supply of RESCUE Remedy gum – orange flavored with an elderflower liquid center – that contains the 5 Bach flower stress relieving ingredients. It’s a light, delicious taste that helps relieve tension – and the chewing helps me too!
For my daughters, having gum isn’t always a good idea say, while they’re in class where it isn’t allowed. Since this situation brings most of their anxiety and stress – giving speeches or taking an important test – my teens use RESCUE Remedy Pastilles.
A texture blend of hard candy and a gummy bear, these black currant flavored pastilles hold the same 5 Bach flower stress relieving ingredients that help them to calm their mind and focus at the task at hand. No side effects and not habit forming. Stress is a part of life, finding a positive way to handle this feeling will only benefit you and those around you. How do you handle stress?
I have been using the Bach remedies for years and recommend you try them for yourself. They are available in a variety of formulas; gum, lozenges, liquid tincture and sprays. You can purchase them at Walgreen’s, CVS, Whole Foods or Sprouts. They will be in the Sleep Aid section or the Whole Body section of these stores. The prices range from $5.95 to $9.99.
