What is the "Rescue Remedy"?

Last update: 19 November, 2018

People frequently find themselves in situations of emergency or crises. Said crises are more easily defined as experiences that a person has when they find their emotions overflowing and lose control. In these cases, the affected individual is invaded by a tension that cannot be so easily overcome, controlled, nor unloaded.

Today, we want to tell you about something called the “Remedy Rescue” that involves using different floral essences in therapeutical ways. Read more below!

Emotional, physical, and mental crisis

These situations of crisis can present themselves in the face of trauma, bad news, panic attacks, anxiety, fear, tension, and violent arguments. They can also be presented with a confusing state of mind, agitation, and circumstances where the person feels a need to be rescued.

In addition, there have been cases where women have turned to this remedy for severe headaches, period cramps, or uncontrollable nerves.

The “Rescue Remedy”

The well-known Dr. Edward Bach (1886-1936) discovered the therapeutic qualities of floral essences and created a natural remedy to “rescue” those patients that found themselves in a state of crisis. The treatment, called the “Rescue Remedy,” is considered a remedy that helped those who felt helpless to face difficult situations.

The remedy, or flower essences, also come in the forms of drops. The flavors can vary depending on the brand or on the floral essence used.

What is it made of?

5 flowers compose this first-aid medication. Their qualities are as follows:

  • Rock Rose helps to keep panic and terror at bay in the face of an unexpected situation.
  • Clematis can help to keep you in an alert state and keep you in control and in contact with reality.
  • Cherry plum alleviates desperation and prevents shock.
  • Impatiens resolves tension, anxiety, and stress. It also soothes muscle pains.
  • The Star of Bethlehem contains five recoveries. The consumer will recuperate their emotional, physical, and mental structure. And also in the process, it will soothe their regret, anxiety, and pain.

This combination of flowers had been previously studied in order to help patients in any situation lacking calmness and tranquility.

How do I take it?

The state of mind of the patient will determine the dosage of this remedy. Usually, it is recommended to take 4 drops in the morning. In extreme cases,10 drops each morning and 10 each night are recommended.

Additionally, if the person feels that they are overwhelmed, they can take 4 emergency drops at any time of day.

The best way to take the drops is to apply them with a dropper below the tongue, allowing it to sit and act for a few seconds, and then swallowing. This is the best way because your body absorbs the drops more quickly and allows its effects to take hold within a few minutes.

Since it is a natural medication, there have been no cases of overdose, harmful secondary effects, nor negative reactions. The patient will simply feel calmer when they take it. Also, they will be able to think more clearly and be able to take control of their body and mind.

Natural ways are always better

Nature has provided us with all of its power to care for our health and our lives. Many patients view this “Rescue Remedy” as a natural treasure by many patients that have lost control of their emotions. Finally, they have found in nature the best solution for protecting their health and recuperating their physical and mental structure.

“Sickness is not of natural origin but born of a lack of equilibrium between the body, mind, and soul.”
