  • Flower Therapy: what it is, how and why to use it in veterinary medicine
    underlying disturbance resulting in disease The second consideration to be made even more importantly is to understand the direction taken from the holistic perspective by a pathologic process The material evolution of a pathogenic type has always a centripetal direction it deepens into the body from outside to inside from the most peripheral parts down to the vital organs The body for defensive reasons tries to leave disease in the most external parts those mainly expendable by acting in a centrifugal direction Therefore the most external symptoms such as those affecting skin as well as the so called discharges such as wet feces even though more visible and often more suffered by the animal s owners must be considered as the least important trouble by which the body expresses its pain If we try to visualize this concept by means of a cone representing the individual s hierarchy as a whole we see that the highest portion is the Self of the deepest either conscious and unconscious being including mind and thinking The second layer of the cone is the ability of doing that is to put into practice what lies in the ideas the realization of the will The third layer constitutes the cardiovascular system including blood lymph and intra and extra cellular fluids the fluid portion of the body Then we have the internal organs and finally the lowest layer the external organs 6 The cone represents schematically the individual as a whole the arrows indicate the direction of the vital strength action as well as the direction where the healing process should occur If we consider the disease not as a single pathology but as a totality of symptoms arising over time it is clear that due to the relationship among the various layers the evidence of the primary disorder at the top of the cone level will occur in the lowest level In other words the body will send a signal but trying at the same time to give up its wholeness as little as possible On the other hand if due to either suppressive therapies or a worsening of the disease the vital strength weakens the symptoms will be more serious in other words they will be evident in the highest layers to finally become inconsistent with the life itself This schematization is certainly a bit rigid but allows us to consider the improving as well as the worsening of the patient s situation from a holistic perspective without merely focusing on a single pathologic event which can even seem to be solved As an example the animal may not be suffering from pyoderma anymore but this does not necessarily imply that he has recovered If afterwards breathing hepatic or kidney symptoms occur even if mildly this means that the animal s health has worsened from the holistic point of view The treatments addressed only to organic levels can result in a superficial injury recovery but the healing process is still distant since the disease s causes remain and can again occur even more seriously The doctor must know what it is damaging the health and remove it If the root of an old tooth is causing persistent headache this is a cause to be removed Prescribing drugs when a sliver irritates a nerve would be nonsense a kind of severe negligence It is necessary to aim to the differentiation removing externals causes and re arranging external causes 7 Bach does not exclude the recourse to physical or chemical remedies which may prove to be not only useful but also essential to obtain the body healing or even its survival Bach on the other hand firmly indicates the primary need of the treatment of the mental and emotional state which is crucial for reaching the real healing In Bach s opinion the disease is not only a functioning defect of the body according to his principles the illness as known to us is the total result of a conflict between our spiritual Self and our passing Self As long as both aspects are in agreement we are in a very good health Diagram of the cone upside down In the healing process the centrifugal direction must be followed the therapeutic action must begin from the inside and then get to the outside from center to periphery from the top to the bottom from inside to outside from main organs to less important ones If Flower Therapy provides good results we will see a movement of the symptoms in the following direction as long as the emotional and mental aspects improve the first to give signals of re balance center and there will be also a movement of physical symptoms towards the periphery But what is the link between the various layers of the cone What brings wholeness to the physical and astral bodies Kent one of the fathers of homeopathy who along with Hahnemann had a great influence on Bach s thought Bach it is worth mentioning was a great homeopath before discovering Flower Remedies affirms that everything is permeated with a spiritual influence an active substance permeating any material body having a unique origin and without which no life is possible It is invisible and substantial since it interacts with the material it is intelligent in the way that has a purpose and it is coordinating since it connects single entities determining their co operation The vital strength of the body without which there is no protection from outside attacks 8 comes directly from this spiritual influence It is within us as well as in animals and plants it permeates each tissue each cell The natural flow of this simple element can be altered in this case there is also a change in the vital strength which is immaterial and not measurable Therefore this variation results in the predisposition to develop the disease Edward Bach who was supported by a deep religiousness located this simple substance in the Soul 9 In order to reach

  • Illumine Light Balancer
    light also present in the flower essence This constant light means transformation as what is hidden and old can be seen and released so that new aspects of the Self can be manifested A new understanding of Pine flower essence This particular quality of transformation and moving to the new draws my attention as Pine essence is usually related to a sense of guilt So with this different understanding I could then experience the Illumine formula carrying out its action in some cases far beyond any expectations and its original intent for seasonal depression In early September 2005 the combination was proposed to those clients showing a yearly recurring issue of lack of light that besides the blue feeling or depression in some cases also caused a remarkable mental and body fatigue They happily reported quick relief in a few days Case study Illumine Light Balancer helps to build confidence and the strength to move forward At that same time I was still working with Angela a young looking woman aged 42 on her deep rooted issues of depression and fear of taking on responsibilities in her life Her partner had asked her to live together and she went into a panic about the decision and the sense of guilt she felt toward her parents as she was afraid they would not have accepted her companion She was still very uncertain and showed lack of self confidence despite some important results achieved in the past she finally managed to leave her family in 2003 to live on her own The phase of the work we were carrying out was focused on her deep identity so that she could see herself as a capable reliable person also able to take care of herself and her life make decisions and interact with the others on the same level rather than on the lower one on which she usually placed herself Indeed the program was very ambitious for a person who had always depended on parents who did not encourage and foster her self sufficiency This aspect was very evident during our updates during telephone conversations In fact she passively complained quite often with a plaintive voice rather than showing changes or reactions to the situations she did not like In particular she was complaining about some aspects of the behaviour of her partner which she pointed out to him more than once and each time he gave the impression of understanding Consequently she was expecting to see some changes During a further telephone conversation while she updated me with a ringing voice on the details concerning her healing path and the flower essence combination she was taking she spoke about a different depression one with a lump in her throat occurring at every change of seasons She emphasized how this condition was really overwhelming and difficult to tolerate So we decided to make a break with the combination she was taking to address this new issue After that we would carry on

  • Joshua Tree Flower Essence
    observed the effect of Larch on a number of clients I have found that the healing qualities of Joshua Tree are even more profound and of a different character For example one does not find with Larch that the client is as likely to report feeling centered or that the client feels life can be mastered through the activation of the Core Self Identity We can understand the clinical indications for Joshua Tree by reflecting on the physical plant itself This plant thrives in an extreme desert environment Many specimens can be found growing in a completely solitary manner while others live in a more obvious community setting The young trees do not have a branch making capacity We can see the upward initial tendency of the young tree with its single stem As the tree matures spreading forked branches develop and the tree acquires more orientation downward toward Earth Each flower of the tree results in a new branch that grows in a different direction It is my sense that the development of the earthward bending gesture in this tree reminds the Human Soul that spiritual knowledge must include what is experienced in life on earth Each branching of the tree is a picture of how the I integrates the individual human aspects of the life biography into a more comprehensive spiritual consciousness It is only within the core self identity that this awareness can take place In this lies the real meaning of human evolution as well as the purpose of incarnation on Earth Key Clinical Indications for Joshua Tree Flower Essence I primarily use this flower essence for clients showing family issues and poor self identity Examples include submissive relationships with relatives or alcoholic patterns in the family Typically I begin my initial work addressing more obvious
