Bach Flower Remedies

*** THEY'RE HERE! ***

"The original Bach Flower Remedies is a safe and natural method of healing discovered by Dr. Bach from 1920 – 1930’s in England. They gently restore the balance between mind and body by casting out negative emotions such as fear, worry, hatred and indecision which interfere with the equilibrium of the being as a whole. The Bach Flower Remedies allow peace and happiness to return to the sufferer so that the body is free to heal itself. The Bach Flower Remedies are made from wild flowers and are safe for the whole family including pets."

YOU MUST DILUTE THESE REMEDIES FOR BIRDS!
The remedies are preserved in grape based brandy and are gluten free.  As per Clinical Avian Medicine, Vol. 1 (Harrison-Lightfoot), because of the alcohol, these remedies should be diluted in spring water before they are administered to birds at the rate of 10-12 drops per ounce of water.  If you are making enough to store add 1 t. apple cider vinegar to this dilution  and/or keep it refrigerated.

As per Holistic Care For Birds (McCluggage, DVM-Higdon), the quantity of each dose is not important for effectiveness so, swallowing one diluted drop is roughly the same as drinking the entire bottle.  Although quantity does not matter, how often you dose your bird does.  For long standing problems, if the problem is not acute, dose your bird 2-3 times daily.  During acute times of stress or when problems are severe, dose every hour or even every few minutes in the most extreme cases.  You can add it to their water bottle, spray it on their food or administer directly in the bird's mouth.

I highly recommend READING about the intent and use of Bach Flower Remedies AND making a treatment plan for yourself so that you fully understand and experience how they work.  This will assist your effectiveness in treating your bird.  It is important to be patient, persistent, consistent and objective.  Bach Flower Remedies work on the mental and emotional aspects of the bird.  Improvement can often be seen quickly or it can take time.  The fewer you use, the more focused the effect.  Develop a treatment strategy using no more than 3-6 flowers.  Work with the most important issue first.  You can address other issues, if needed, in the future.  

A note on PROJECTION & MIRRORING:  You want to be very careful to be OBJECTIVE in your observation and conclusions with your bird as you would be with any living being you are caring for.  You do NOT want to project your own personality, characteristics, feelings, thoughts, and moods onto them.  Doing so would obscure the true nature of the bird's behavior and cause a misdirected Bach Flower Remedy plan.  Be self-aware and reflective.  It is possible that the bird is mirroring your own behaviors, in some way, depending upon the issues.  This would suggest you may benefit from a similar Bach plan.

I have selected what I think are the most important for our birds.  That is not to say any of the others aren't important.  If you wish a particular flower that I don't currently have here just message me and I can have it in a few days.  I have attempted to include high level information.  This is in NO way complete or enough information for your decision making.

THIS IS NOT A SHORT-CUT TO TREATING ANYTHING WITH YOUR BIRD.  YOU MUST HAVE DIET AND ENRICHMENT ON POINT.  YOU MUST TAKE PROPER VETERINARIAN CARE!!!  THERE ARE *** NO SHORT-CUTS WITH BIRDS ***
