How long should I take the Bach Flower remedies?

This is a question that people ask a lot and no exact answer can be given. Bach Flower therapy is not an exact science because it involves people and their emotions.

 

Every person is different, has another past, experiences emotions with different intensity and responds differently to Bach Flowers. It is very risky to give a statement when for example after that period of time they told the person, no result is achieved and the person would stop taking the Bach Flower remedies. Maybe a result could have been achieved if the person would have taken them for one week longer.

 

There is a very simple rule when taking Bach Flower remedies: as long as you are still suffering from those particular emotions or state of mind you keep taking them. This can take one month, two months, three months, six months, one year,….

 

For the people who I have worked with, I have developed a basic rule, which can be quite successfully applied; some exceptions to this rule no doubt exist. This rule is based on how long the complaint has been present:

Less than one months : 1 month

Less than three months : 2 months

More than six months: 3 months

 

I would like to state that this is just an indicator not an exact rule. This period is really individually very different. I have had cases where I thought it would take a maximum of one month and the person ended up taking the Bach Flower remedies three months. On the other hand there are people with long-term deep-rooted problems who after taking the Bach flowers for one month no longer suffered from their problems.
