HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES FOR TEENS

Teenage years can feel like being on a roller coaster where emotions are high one day and low the next. 

 

This is not only due to hormonal changes, but also life changing experiences such as dealing with peers and peer pressure, school studies, increased responsibilities and most commonly, relationship issues.

 

Emotional awareness is very important for teenagers to acknowledge and articulate what and how they feel so that strategies to deal with their emotions can be exercised.

 

One positive way to help is through the use of Bach Flower remedies. Bach Flowers are plant based remedies  that are specific for different mood states that impact upon our mental, emotional and physical well-being.

 

Dr Edward Bach was the creator of the 38 Bach Flower remedies in the 1930's. His philosophy was:

'A healthy mind ensures a healthy body'.

 

Bach Flowers are appropriate for all ages, are completely safe, have no side effects, are non-addictive and can be used alongside conventional medicine.
