Cherubim, kind of angel. Cherubim were probably thought of in the ancient Middle East as composite creatures like the winged creatures of Assyria. Rescue Remedy seems to be used by everyone from students to company executives and has become as popular a component of modern day living as theFilofax. The 38 BachFlower Remedies were created by Dr EdwardBach (pronounced Batch) in the 1930s. He was dissatisfied with the scientific approach to medicine and had quit his Harley Street practice to concentrate on treating people, not their illnesses. He believed a person's nature had a direct impact on their physical health, concluding that disease is simply a manifestation of negative thoughts such as fear, anxiety, grief,frustration and despair. There are 38 Bach Flower remedies which have been developed to support every conceivable personality, attitude and negative state of mind. Bach classified all emotional problems into seven major groups: fear, uncertainty and indecision, insufficient interest in present circumstances, loneliness, over-sensitivity, despondency and overcare for the welfare of others. Through their subtle, vibrational energy, the remedies work to heal every negative aspect of all seven types of emotional illness, thereby restoring mental harmony and preventing any physical illness from taking hold. Made from soaking or boiling petals from identified flowers and then adding the liquid to brandy which becomes the mother tincture, the Bach Remedies work in a similar way to Homeopathic remedies. Some of the remedies are known as ``type remedies'' -essentially, the remedy most compatible to your personality. You take it when the negative side of your character threatens the positive. For example, the essence Beech is a type remedy. This is for the perfectionist. 1. A propensity for being displeased with anything that is not perfect or does not meet extremely high standards. 2. who finds it hard to tolerate or understand the shortcomings of those they believe to be foolish or ignorant. The remedy helps them to become more understanding. Elm is for those who a reoverwhelmed and made to feel inadequate by pressure from work,family and other commitments. The remedy helps to calm them and make them think clearly, restoring confidence.

MIXING AND TAKING REMEDIES The recommendation for every day purposes is to take no more than six or seven remedies at the same time. Rescue Remedy counts as one remedy. You can use one of two basic methods when you want to mix them. For passing moods select ones you want to take, than in a glass of water add two drops of each remedy. Sip from the glass at intervals until the mood has passed. In an emergency you might take a sip every few seconds and later a couple of sips during the evening. For long term problems you can use a glass of water method. Make up a fresh glass each morning. Sip from the glass four times a day - in the morning, in the evening and two more times during the day. You can also make up a treatment bottle. In an empty 30 ml or 1 oz dropper bottle put two drops of each selected remedy and a double dose of Rescue Remedy (if you need it), than top the bottle with non-fizzy bottled mineral water. Shake the content a little bit. Take four drops directly on the tongue at least four times a day. Four drops are the minimum dose. If you take less it reduces the effectiveness of the remedies. A 30 ml treatment bottle will last up to three weeks.

The remedies work to stop negative thought processes and self-limiting beliefs and replace them with positive and liberating states of mind. If emotional eating is a problem for you then Bach Flower Remedies will make all the difference to your weight loss success. Some remedies that help with weight loss are: Agrimony - if you find yourself comfort eating to stay happy and to stop thinking about your problems or uncomfortable feelings. It will get rid of your inner restlessness and replace it with inner calm and happiness. You won’t need chocolate, cake or pizza to make you feel good any more! Chestnut Bud – if you are a yo-yo dieter. When you don’t learn from the past and keep repeating the same mistakes (like reaching for that chocolate bar!) then this is a remedy for you. It will help you to break your bad eating habits and learn from your past experience. Centaury – to help you say ‘no’ to food you can’t resist or to ‘kind’ friends who offer a piece of cake to go with your coffee! If you don’t like hurting people’s feelings and eat to please others then Centaury will really help you. It will allow you develop your will and stay true to what you want for yourself. Saying no will become easy and you will get a good sense of who you are and what you want for your life. Cherry Plum – if you have cravings and feel you will go mad without cake, beer, bread (my personal favourites!)… or whatever it is that you long for. It calms you down, takes away the obsessive thoughts and gives you emotional composure. Crab Apple – if you have poor body image and become obsessed with the details of diets. It will cleanse you and help you to rid your body of toxins and your mind of toxic thoughts. You will
feel relaxed about yourself and relaxed about food. Gentian – if you are easily set back and become despondent if something goes wrong. Maybe you doubt your ability to lose weight or you give up if you don’t have a good weight loss straight away. It will give you faith that things will work out well, keep you feeling positive and you will be able to deal with obstacles as they arise. Holly – if you eat because you are angry, jealous or have deep hurts from the past. Holly will heal your hurts and help you to forgive, move on and know love again. Hornbeam – if motivation is your problem then Hornbeam will help. If even the thought of attempting to lose weight makes you feel tired or if you procrastinate and put off starting a diet or exercise regime then you need Hornbeam. It will give you energy and motivation. Impatiens – if you are impatient and can’t wait to get to your target weight. Maybe your weight loss isn’t fast enough for you so you start a different diet or try the next new diet craze, then that one isn’t working as quickly as you thought it would so you try something else. Impatiens helps you to be calm, relaxed and patient and allow things to take their natural course. Larch - if you lack confidence in your ability to lose weight and have low self-esteem. It helps if you think that you can’t exercise or can’t lose weight or if you fear that you will fail to reach your target weight.

Pine – if you feel guilty about food and beat yourself up if you eat something you believe is ‘wrong’ or if you feel guilty if you leave food on your plate or reject food that someone has prepared for you. Pine helps you to lighten up on yourself. It stops you from judging yourself too harshly or feeling you don’t deserve to be slim. It sets you free from feelings of guilt, unworthiness and self-reproach. Pine helps you to accept yourself, respect yourself and love yourself. Rock Water – if you are totally rigid in your diet and follow a very strict self-imposed regime with no joy, pleasure or flexibility.
