How fast do remedies from Feel Bach! work?

How fast do remedies from Feel Bach! work? It all depends on the problem and the person.

Feel5ive works very quickly for most of us. When you're going into a nerve-wracking situation – like keeping a dental appointment or giving a speech - you can take it shortly ahead of time and stay calm. And for some people, once the flower remedies have done their work, you don't need to continue taking them.

Take Sweet Dreams, for instance.

When I was sleepless I took it for only a week or two before my sleep patterns were back to normal and I didn't need it. However, I have a friend who will lay awake unless he takes it every day – and this has gone on for months.

Why did Sweet Dreams cure me almost immediately, but he needs to keep taking it indefinitely?

Of course I don't actually know the answer to that, but my guess is that it has to do with our relative health, and the medication he's taking.

My friend is quite ill - with everything from heart disease to kidney malfunction to diabetes. As a result, he's taking a dozen or so prescription drugs every day. It would scare me silly to put that much poison into my system, but when his doctors say "take this" he takes it. He's in that precarious position between being afraid to take the medication - and afraid not to take it.

That fear may have a lot to do with his sleep problems, too. So between the illnesses, the chemicals, and the worry, it may take a while for Bach Flower Remedies to make a permanent difference. I'm just thankful that they are there to give him much-needed sleep as long as he takes them.

With me it was just a matter of being unable to shut off my "mindspeak." I kept waking up thinking about things I needed to get done the next day or mentally re-writing something I'd done the previous day. The Bach Flower Essences re-balanced my energies and got me back on the right track quickly.

We'd love to hear about your experiences - to know how fast Bach flowers worked for you, and if you have influences like my friend's that are affecting your life.

Meanwhile - "Feel Good, Feel Bach!"
