Rescue Remedy to the Rescue!

Rescue Remedy is one of the most common things I recommend in my practice.

Just as the name predicts, Rescue Remedy is a homeopathic formulation designed to help you cope with varying aspects of emotional stress.

This homeopathic stress relief preparation has been used safely and effectively for generations and it comes in a number of convenient forms to suit your particular application: oral drops, a spray, a topical cream, as a lozenge, and in chewing gum form.


What is Rescue Remedy?

Rescue Remedy is a blend of 5 of the original 38 Bach Flower Remedies, developed by Dr. Edward Bach a medical physician, turned homeopath and researcher in the 1920's and 1930s.

Dr. Bach was an advanced physician for his time and we owe him a great deal for his research on mental and emotional causes of dis-ease. If you would like to learn more about his life and his research, please visit the Bach Centre.

So, getting back to the Rescue Remedy formulation, it is comprised of the following 5 individual flower remedies:

  1. Rock Rose: which is used for terror and panic
  2. Impatiens: which helps with irritation and impatience
  3. Clematis: which aids in inattentiveness and lack of focus
  4. Star of Bethlehem: which is for shock
  5. Cherry Plum: which assists with irrational thoughts and a lack of self-control.

What about my kids and pets?

You will only find all natural ingredients in Rescue Remedy, so it is completely safe for yourself, your kids and your pets.

According to BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, like other homeopathic preparations, Rescue Remedy is considered safe for pregnant woman, infants, children and people with medical conditions.

Due to the fact that the original formulation has a small amount of alcohol as a preservative, there is now a kids-specific and pet-specific formulation available too.

For kids, encourage them to use it if they are finding school a challenge, before a test or if they are being bullied. You can even use the cream version as a first aid remedy to treat minor injuries such as bumps and bruises, minor cuts, burns, insect bites and bee stings. The product will help neutralize nervous system shock.

For pets, studies show that approximately 10-11 million pets suffer from separation anxiety alone - rescue remedy is great way to help them cope, naturally and effectively. Or give them a few drops before going to the vets or if this is a traumatic experience for them. And send it along to the kennel if an overnight stay is required. Your pets will certainly thank you.

How does Rescue Remedy actually work?

The science of homeopathy is actually based on vibrational and energy medicine.

There is no actual active ingredient in a homeopathic remedy, as the original ingredients have been diluted so many times that all that is left is an energetic and vibrational imprint. This is what makes it so safe, as well as so powerful.

This may sound odd if you are not familiar with the concepts of energy medicine, but my hope is that you stay open minded to learning more. I wish I could go into much more detail, but this is simply not the forum for that.

If you'd like to read more about homeopathy, I'll refer you a few other related pages on my website:

  • Vibration Stress Relief

As well, I'd like to refer you to a book that was written by a mom who's son was cured of autism through the use of homeopathy. The book is called Impossible Cure: The Promise of Homeopathy, by Amy L. Lansky, PhD.

As always, if you have any questions or comments, please contact me!

Yours in Wellness,

Dr. Lisa
