Everyone feels down sometimes. Perhaps you’re overwhelmed, exhausted from chronic illness, or dealing with life circumstances that feel hopeless. Of course, you should always consult a doctor if you experience depression, particularly if you have suicidal thoughts or tendencies, or can’t cope with life. But, if you just need a little support from a natural remedy to help you through one of the inevitable rough patches in life, Bach flower remedies can help.
Edward Bach was a medical doctor and one of the earliest homeopaths at the beginning of the twentieth century. Disillusioned by modern medicine, he believed that every physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual symptom offered clues as to what we need to restore balance. Over time, he discovered flower remedies.
Following are some of Bach’s flower remedies for depression. Select the remedy or remedies that best match how you are feeling. You can take one or more remedies. Simply add four drops of the remedy to a glass of water and sip throughout the day. Alternatively, take two drops under the tongue four times a day or as necessary.
