Bach Flower Remedy Testimonials
🌺 Testimonial for using Flower Remedies, by Mavis Toh
For as long as I could remember I had always been someone who is perpetually depressed, anxious and has low self-esteem. I also had trouble sleeping. I struggled with repetitive thoughts on some nights, usually worrying about or dwelling on really mundane things. I had a tough childhood which involves aggression and some violence, and it still gets me sometimes. Despite the adversities, I was able to put up a strong front, smile and get on with life in school or at work.
In recent years certain life-changing events exacerbated my conditions. I was utterly overwhelmed and crippled with uncertainties, immense guilt, responsibilities, fear, anger and sadness. I was no longer functioning – I could not think properly, I snapped at everyone and everything. At one point it got so bad that I was not able to sleep and eat AT ALL.
I chanced upon the Bach flower remedies whilst surfing the internet one day and went on to book an appointment for consultation with Wai Fong. The consultation process was very therapeutic. Wai Fong was very empathetic, patient and listened intently in a non-judgmental way whilst I air my grievances. She was able to accurately identify the remedies I needed based on what I shared. I went home with a personalised treatment bottle of flower remedies, rescue remedy, and anticipation at the end of my first consultation.
The effect of the flower remedies on me was nothing short of amazing! The rescue remedy was able to calm me down almost immediately whenever I get worked up. I could literally feel my tensed muscles relaxing and was able to take deeper and longer breaths with the rescue remedy. The personalised mixture of flower remedies helped me to be much calmer, have more confident and better quality of sleep. Friends and family members alike noticed my transformation and said I am way happier and relaxed now. I can now face challenges with stride, resolving problems with more compassion and wisdom than before. I am extremely grateful to Dr Bach for the flower remedies and Wai Fong for her kindness and guidance.
🌺 Testimonial for Level 1 course by Mavis Toh
It was a pleasure to attend the Level 1 course of the Bach flower remedy system conducted by Dr Chiang Wai Fong. Lessons were presented in an interactive, structured and informative way without being too overwhelming. Each of us was able to learn at our own pace under Dr Chiang’s guidance. Dr Chiang is very generous in her sharing of knowledge and experience. I have gained a deeper understanding of the indications and nuances of the 38 different types of remedies through the case studies and discussions in class facilitated by Dr Chiang. I now have more confident in identifying the appropriate remedies for myself and my family members.
Rosalind (Psychiatric Rehabilitation Recovery Coach and Trainer)
Many years ago I was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and severe depression by an IMH doctor. My life was in complete darkness and chaos at that time, nothing seemed to work in my life. I was unable to cope with my regular emotional outburst, mood swings and relationship issues with families and friends. I have a few suicide attempts too to jump off a few high-rise buildings near to the place I live.
I was on anti-psychotics and anti-depressant for several years during that time. My support system was very weak and i do not know how to seek help or do things to help me regulate better. My psychiatrist did not teach me how to cope with my symptoms too. The only way to go was medication and hospitalisation if the condition got worst.
I have suffered through a very long painful phrase in my journey not knowing what to do, just following someone's instructions (westerns medical model) that was not accurate for my recovery. It was a long painful process as my body was hurting badly. The medical model did not help to resolve my symptoms and emotional issues. Instead it created more unhelpful side effects such as involuntarily hand shaking, increased appetite that increased weight gain by 15 kg within a period of 3-4 weeks, other side effects such as skin allergies, brain numbness, and also loss of memory added more irritations to the prevailing condition I am facing. The meds also disrupted my sleeping patterns and caused more harm to the other parts of the brain, organs and body.
After having a better understanding about the harmful effects caused by the consumption of anti-psychotics and anti-depressant, I am determined to find alternatives that are safe to replace toxic medicines. I had found a few that are sustainable and helpful. Now, I am off meds for more than 8 years. I am in a better position in my life to share with others the alternatives I adapted to get to what I am now .
Those alternatives that I have tried after I got off meds have positive impact to help me address the real human conditions. I am more connected to myself and others now. I am not running away from problems and my physical body anymore. I feel more centred, peaceful and joyful as compare to the time I am on psych meds...
I am thankful to Bach flowers remedy and some of the body works I am practicing. Bach flowers has helped me to relax and address most of my emotional discomforts, moods swings and the road blocks I faced in life. This remedy system has 38 types of flowers. It is a very safe remedy from nature. It is inexpensive as compared to psych meds. It produces much better results in helping me to regulate my emotions so that i can function and cope better with my daily challenges. It’s definitely a wiser and safer prescription and treatment plan as compared to psych meds. Beside addressing my emotional aspects. This remedy system also addresses other deep-rooted areas in my body that were causing the breakdown.
I believe strongly that nature has a better and gentler way to heal and protect us from harm, and to keep the human species alive and be reproductive. Bach flower remedy have also motivated me to do the impossible which I have lots of fears to face them in the past. I believe I have also overcome lots of my maladaptive thinking pattern and behaviour too.
Thanks to this amazing discovery by Dr Bach.
I also find the Bach Flower Remedy system course to be helpful and engaging. The trainer, Wai Fong, is presence and well prepared for the classes. The facilities and class material was great for this training. Wai Fong uses lots of interesting class activities and visuals to engage us in our learning. What I enjoyed most was prescribing Bach flowers remedy for myself. I also took away much knowledge from the case discussions we had in the 2-day course. Overall, the training was good. We should have more classes like this in Singapore moving forward.
