I know that as a mom you can feel a bit powerless when your child is ill - many of the adult remedies are not suitable for young children. PLUS most western medications only address the physical symptoms rather than the emotional or mental causes. The flower essences, discovered by Dr. Edward Bach, relieve "stress and emotional imbalance". There are 38 flower essences:
I have just begun my journey with the flower essences, but here are two I have recently learned of:
Honeysuckle - "helps you put the memories of the past into proper perspective if you are feeling homesick or overly nostalgic".
Mustard - "brings back joy and cheerfulness when gloom descends for no reason".
Here is how you take a flower essence - they come in liquid form and are in a vial with a dropper. You can put four drops under your tongue four times a day, or you can put four drops in a glass of water and sip that 4 times a day(recommended for little ones). They don't have much taste at all, but I would stick with putting it in water or juice - I have found it alters the taste of my coffee. SO the Honeysuckle flower essence can be useful in situations where a child has Separation Anxiety, or in my case, helpful for someone who has just moved. The great thing is that they have no negative side-affects. If you don't need the essence, your body simply will not use it. You have nothing to lose!
