Flower Essences and Chinese Herbs

It has been said that there is never a sick person who isn’t hiding their emotions. You kill the energy of life by doing this. Unresolved emotions must be dealt with for people to get physically well.

Flower Essences help people find balance emotionally and physically.  When you have balance with the Mental, Emotional and Physical aspects of your life, the body can move toward total healing.

Using the flower essences bring an awareness of what’s around us and what we need to do to correct it. 

Link your product to an emotional response because 90% of motivation to purchase is emotional

When thought and feelings align, change (improvement) can happen

Flower Essences do not have a placebo effect. You don’t have to believe in them for them to work. They work well on animals, too.

All Flower Essences are in a glycerin base which does not encourage yeast or candida or upset blood sugar levels

Determining Which Product(s) To Use

An emotional test is available at no charge by going to http://treelite.com/quizzes/emotional-health-assessment.php

If the Essence is not helping after a week or two, you are probably using the wrong one.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

Chinese call the life energy Chi or Qi.  It makes the difference between life and death.

Balance is the key to health

Modern western medicine sees life as a mechanical process.  Everything is either a chemical imbalance corrected by drugs or a physical problem corrected by surgery. (Even modern psychiatry treats mental and emotional problems as physical—giving drugs to treat them.  When someone dies, the parts are all there, the chemicals are all there but the life force is gone.

TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) sees health as adjusting energy.  As the energy (or chi) is balanced and regulated, the biochemistry and structure of the body are rebalanced.

Yin vs. Yang

Calming (+) and nurturing (building) (-).

Chinese largely live in poverty and tend to have a deficiency. (YIN energy)

Americans tend to excess:  We eat too much, work too hard, play too hard. (YANG energy)

Many Americans can be deficient in some areas because they have over-worked, over-stressed, eaten nutrient deficient foods for a long time.  A person who is excess for long periods of time can become deficient (burned out; worn out) in one or more areas.

Enhancing the Grieving Process

Release It flower Essence and Breathe Activator (stressed formula) to speed the grieving process and help manage it

  • Grieving empties your lungs (as laughter does) and produces endorphins.  When one can’t get over the grieving process, their lungs are “stuffed full.”
  • To go through the grieving process:
  • On the left side, 2 ribs spaces below the collar bone, do a little circle clockwise (from inside to outside of the body) while taking deep breaths and exhaling completely.  Voice the grief that comes up.
  • There is nothing that you suffer that millions and millions have not suffered.
  • Love is a gift; cannot be demanded nor expected.  You don’t have to earn it.

Everything you love will die. Your choices are:

  • Pretend you won’t lose them or while they are here, have gratitude
  • If you don’t engage with the spiritual world, aging will be very difficult
  • Sympathy is terrible. It prevents them from dealing with the emptiness through the grieving process. They feel along in their pain.
  • Express empathy instead. “You miss them and I know it hurts.  It’s OK to hurt. “ 
  • Pain that is shared diminishes it. Joy is share, increases it

Venting anger

Keep Cool Flower Essence + Chinese Liver Balance and IF-C (Stressed formulas). 

  • Is a dumping process to express emotions.  It involves blaming others which gives away the responsibility of changing.
  • Anger is used as a weapon to control others and deprive them of their rights to be whom they are
  • Is a sign of lack of love and respect for others.
