Resolve sleep problems
Why can you sleep better with Bach Flowers? It’s because they are extremely effective in helping resolve the issues that prevent you from sleeping as you’d like, including tossing and turning, not falling asleep quickly, bad dreams, and the lack of motivation and fatigue that is a result of sleep problems.
One of the reasons for this is that Bach Flowers help you deal with not just the symptoms of your sleep issues, but also their root causes.
The difference between symptoms and root causes
For example: perhaps you’re tired and not sleeping well because you can’t shut off your constant thoughts, even when you go to bed.
This is a SYMPTOM of your sleep issue – endless thoughts that you can’t turn off. And indeed, there’s a Bach Flower remedy which helps wonderfully with this – White Chestnut.
However, White Chestnut alone is not enough to help you.
This is because, in this case, using White Chestnut would be treating only the SYMPTOM of your sleeplessness. And when one treats only the SYMPTOM and not also the CAUSE, it may look effective, but truly, it’s not helpful in the long-run because the underlying reason will simply make itself heard in a different way in your body. (Want to learn more about the distinction between symptoms and root causes? Here’s some more information.)
So let’s go back to endless thoughts that you just can’t turn off.
There could be any of a million and one different reasons for you not being able to shut off your thoughts at bedtime – perhaps you are worrying about work, family or the state of the world, maybe you have a big project or event coming up that’s taking up a lot of your attention, maybe you’ve experienced an upsetting or traumatic event and can’t stop thinking about it, perhaps you’ve simply had too much coffee close to bedtime, your mattress is uncomfortable, or your neighbours are making too much noise.
Some of these reasons for your non-stop thinking touch roots of your sleep problems, whereas others are simply additional symptoms of even deeper roots. And there are wonderful and effective Bach Flower remedies that deal with each of these.
What happens during a Bach Flower consultation
And this is what I help you during a Bach Flower consultation with me (in-person or remote): I examine both the symptoms and the roots of your sleeplessness and fatigue, and then create a unique Bach Flower treatment bottle for you that contains tinctures touching on both.
And when you take the Bach Flowers as instructed (four drops or two sprays several times a day), magic occurs in your life – your sleep improves, and you feel more rested and energetic, and things are simply down-right more wonderful.
Generally, the bottle you receive from me is custom-formulated, for both you and your life experiences are unique. This means that the combination of Bach Flowers best for you and your situation will differ from the mix appropriate for anyone else and their situation.
Sometimes, rather than a custom-formulated bottle of Bach Flowers, I instead recommend you take Stress Formula. This happens when your sleep challenges are a good fit for the Stress Formula tinctures. I might recommend Stress Formula too (as at least a first step) if you are looking for a solution that does not require a consultation or is more economical and are willing to experiment.
Regarding how long it will take for your Bach Flowers to work, you can find details about that here.
