Feelings of depression are as unique as you are. Whether you find yourself overcome by the strain of day-to-day life, experience extreme anxiety or are dealing with a loss or other traumatic life change, flower essences can effectively help you to manage and overcome depressive thoughts.
Readily found in pharmacies, health-food shops and online, flower essences help to restore balance between mind, body and spirit, when they are used as part of a considered treatment programme. Flower essences can tackle the emotional and mental blockages that often lie at the root of illness.
First popularised as a holistic treatment by Dr Edward Bach, creator of the popular Rescue Remedy, flower remedies are used by millions of people daily. Chris Phillips, a flower essence therapist with over thirty years experience, incorporates Bach's and other flower essence systems in this helpful handbook, allowing you to tailor treatments to your unique needs and circumstances.
Packed with insight, inspiration and real-life stories, Treating Depression Naturally offers a new way of thinking about and managing your anxiety and depression.
