Flower Essence Natural Remedies for People Experiencing PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

December 1, 2015

Selecting a flower essence remedy should always be based off identifying the biggest challenge you are facing. There are literally hundreds of flower essence remedies to choose from, so it's important to look into the specifics of what you are experiencing and finding a remedy that describes it is indicated for the same. This list is in no way exclusive to the variety of flower essence remedies that can be of great use to people who are experiencing PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). As PTSD is experienced by people from many different walks of life, I am making this list to be general. 

 During private sessions with my clients I do an intake so that I can better recommend a flower essence remedy that is specific to their immediate needs. Flower essence remedies can also be beneficial very for friends and family members of people experiencing PTSD. For example: when remedies such as Impatiens are taken by a military member that is experiencing PTSD and their spouse it may help them be more patient with each other as they both experience healing and understanding together. 

It is suggested that flower remedies are taken one at a time during the cycle of time it is needed. This is because as one layer of a challenge is addressed and fades away, another may come to the surface to be addressed next. Other times, while there may be several challenges that appear to be immediate, addressing the largest one will have an effect that causes other challenges to fade. 

When selecting a flower essence company to purchase their product make sure the company has integrity. Flower essences are an energy medicine which means the more pure the energy, the better it works. Both Bach and Flower Essence Services (FES) brands can be found in many natural food stores. They can also be ordered online, click the brand names above and it will take you to the link. I am personally partial to FES because they are organic, bio-dynamic and grow in a region that is somewhat close to where I live. FES can also be purchased in smaller sized bottles which might be more affordable for some people, although flower essences generally are very affordable, costing about $20 in stores for the Bach brand and somewhere around $12 for FES for a single remedy.
