Bach Flower Remedies

I have used these flower remedies for many years and am constantly recommending people to try them. The approach is different to other natural treatments in that they are designed to work on your emotions rather than any particular physical ailment.

Negativity breeds stress and so if negative emotions can be altered into more positive ones then the body will be better able to heal itself and fight off the effects of stress.

There are 38 different flower remedies and you are able to mix and match them together to find the perfect mix for your own situation and personality.

Endorphins

The most natural stress relief to be found is right inside your body already. Endorphins are power brain chemicals which reduce sensitivity to pain and also promote a feel good factor, sometimes even euphoric experience.

These Endorphins are produced inside your own brain and are stimulated by various activities which you can easily and freely indulge in. this could be the first place to start to try and find some stress relief, you may find that you are perfectly able to cope without any other forms of medication once your natural endorphins kick in.

Herbal Medications

There are many herbal remedies on the market which are designed to promote relaxation and help promote a good night’s sleep, which in itself helps to reduce the effects of stress.

It may take some experimenting with different herbal remedies to find the one that works best for you. I found that I had to try several over a period of time before I found what worked for me.

Lavender Oil

Lavender has been used for thousands of years to treat many different ailments. This is because it is rich in aromatic molecules which are antispasmodic, pacifying and a tonic.

It is better known for it's use for stress relief and it's calming and sleep inducing benefits. Lavender can be used in many different ways from direct contact with the skin for muscle relaxation to inhalations for cold relief.

Licorice Root

Licorice root has many health benefits including supporting the adrenal glands which are essential to coping with stress. A tired adrenal system can lean to ill health especially during periods of excessive stress. This makes licorice root an essential herbal remedy when life gets particularly stressful.

L-theanine is often known as natures valium due to its relaxing and calming effects on the brain.

Valerian Root

Valerian has been traditionally used to aid sleep and help reduce anxiety. It can be taken in tablet or tincture form and is not known to be addictive.
