The Transformational nature of Bach Flower Remedies ‘Rescue Remedy’
What is it?
Rescue Remedy is the UK’s number one emotional wellbeing brand according to Holland & Barrett and Nelsons Homeopathic Pharmacy. It is a 5 remedy combination using the original Bach Flower remedies to help deal with life stresses and strains ie juggling home and work, giving presentations/talks at work, relationships and other more serious challenges involving upset or shock such as bereavement, going into hospital, being given bad news etc.
A few years ago a colleague who attended a funeral took her Rescue Remedy out from her bag to help calm her upset and found several other women did the same thing. Rescue Remedy is part of the Bach Flower remedies system of vibrational medicine discovered by Dr Edward Bach in 1930s in the UK and has been used by millions of people all over the world ever since.
Who uses it?

It is not surprising that so many actors rely on Rescue Remedy. Fear of public speaking (glossophobia) remains a high ranking fear up there alongside the fear of death. Laurence Olivier who was arguably the Greatest Actor of all time said, ‘I am not, I am afraid a very good talker. It causes me a more intense amount of mental upset then it does I think, most people.’ (21st April 1955) When performing on stage Olivier would regularly request a bucket at the side of the stage to throw up in.
Linda Brennan, Psychologist in her forthcoming book, Stage Fright in the Actor writes about the laboured breathing, cold sweats and palpitations that some actors experience. Along with dry mouth, choking sensation and sleepless nights, these are all conditions that most people can empathise with. She argues that the general public do not realise what some actors can suffer for their art. But these anxieties could affect anyone from a teacher standing in front of a class to a student giving a presentation to professionals giving a high powered pitch to their Manager
