Alternative Remedies

Updated on January 29, 2011

Copyright: David the Dogman

In the early 1930's the noted British physician and scientist, Dr. Edward Bach, discovered that the preparation of 38 flowering plants, trees and special waters alleviated a broad range of emotional and psychological difficulties. Bach also developed a highly effective combination emergency rescue formula for the relief of stress during acute stressful situations. "Rescue Remedy" is regarded as the panacea Remedy, having the ability to calm and distress any situation especially, those created by traumatic incidents where an animal was terrorized, injured, or abused.

But, how does one know what emotions dogs, cats, horses and all animals are experiencing? You would be surprised as to how easy it is to "read" an animal. All it takes is some observation and a little insight. You might discover that animals take less effort than humans do!

The Bach Remedies can be taken directly from the stock bottle or from the personal dilution bottle by placing 2 - 4 drops in your animal's feed or water. The Remedies are easy and convenient to use with varied methods of application that can be selected to suit an individual's specific needs.

The most common forms of administering the Remedies are placing them into the animal's food or water; dropping them directly into the animal's mouth; or rubbing the needed remedies on one's hands before petting them.

There is no improper or wrong method of applying the Bach Remedies. It is truly not necessary to be precise in counting the number of drops in any of the dilution methods. The suggestions given, herein, are merely to offer a reasonable parameter of accepted dilution methods. Follow your own judgement and insights. Remember that you cannot overdose the Remedies for they are non-toxic.

RESCUE REMEDY

The following is a description of the Flower Remedies that make up Rescue Remedy, the most commonly used Bach Flower Remedy. Rescue Remedy is not a Flower Essence in itself but a combination of five of original Remedies. Once these five remedies are combined, the Rescue becomes an essence unto itself. If is different now than its individual essences.
