Bach flowers for cats, what effect does it produce?
Bach Flowers are natural healing essences that can help our pet overcome past fears and traumas, dependencies, aggressiveness and, in general, any emotional imbalance.
In addition, as they are a holistic healing system, their effect on the animal is at all levels, so in addition to balancing their emotions we will be improving their physical health, since what we call “diseases” are nothing more than a message from the body telling us that something is wrong emotionally.
The healing produced by the Bach Flowers is very deep, avoiding the repression or camouflage of the symptoms. This is especially important in cases of aggressiveness, in which the objective should not only be that the cat stops attacking, but that it really ends up losing the desire to do so because it exceeds the reasons that drive it to have that attitude (fears, dominance, etc.).
The education of a cat is usually much more difficult and limited than that of a dog, so in serious behavior problems Bach Flowers may be the only thing that prevents the animal from being given away or even sacrificed.
If the remedies are well prescribed, Bach Flowers for cats (and for people and other animals) are also effective even in the treatment of physical illnesses described as “chronic” or “incurable.”
Dosage and precautions
Bach Flowers do not contain any chemical element, but only the vibrational information of the 38 flowers that make up the 38 remedies. They are also polar, which means that they self-regulate because each remedy acts at the same time on the excesses and on the deficiencies of the imbalances it deals with. Therefore, overdose, side effects or dependence that other healing tools can cause is not possible with Bach Flowers. For the same reason they can be combined, without danger of negative interactions, with any other therapy.
As for the dose, they do not work by amount of intake but by frequency. It is the same that we give our cat a drop of a remedy or the whole bottle, but if we give the remedy 6 times a day the healing rate will be twice as fast as if we give it only 3 times a day.
Some examples of Bach flowers for cats
Let’s know some of the Bach Flowers for cats and what positive effect they can have on them:
- Combined with other essences, Chicory (Chicory) works possessiveness, an aspect whose balance is very important in cats, since they are usually quite territorial animals. It would also be administered, along with other essences, to cats that require continuous attention.
- Along with other remedies, Aspen (the aspen) treats our cat’s fear of the unknown (firecrackers and other sudden noises, fear of people or animals that it does not know, etc.).
- Another typical essence for cats is Crab Apple, since these animals are cleaning fans.
- Water Violet regulates something very typical of cats that is the extreme sensitivity to the environment, to noise, etc., so they are usually animals with a tendency to isolate themselves.
- We would use Willow in spiteful cats, who “target them” when they are offended and who, although they may not react at the time, then wet the owner’s bed or attack for no apparent reason. It could be combined with Holly, the essence that regulates feelings of distrust and anger.
- We would give Clematis to distracted, stunned cats, who sleep excessively or who seem to “be in another world”, being slow in movement. If the cause of these symptoms were trauma, we would combine Clematis with Star of Bethlehem. This combination may be able to wake up even unconscious or comatose animals.
- It is good for dominant cats to give them Vine, which teaches them to be authoritarian without being dictators. On the opposite end, we would give Centaury to those who always submit, perhaps combined with Pine if there were feelings of guilt.
- Honeysuckle is the essence of nostalgia, so we will give it, along with Walnut and Star of Bethlehem, to the kittens that have to go through a move, a change of ownership, an admission to the veterinary clinic, or They’ve lost a partner.
