Looking back, I sincerely think flower remedies helped Hannah, my autistic survive school. In middle school & high school she needed help improving her math skills. I’ve tried all kinds of flower remedies to help her get through. Here I’ll share with you some of my favorites. Obviously she has really struggled over the years with her ability to handle stressful situations and her emotions in general. This is not conducive environment for learning.
These issues were holding her back from truly living her life in a meaningful and successful way. Adding Flower Essences to her supplement regimen has improved her symptoms and outlook dramatically. Her emotional & psychological functioning, attitude, personality and cognitive abilities have all been improved using these all natural flower beauties!
In fact for a time I was sending the flower essence blend STUDENT in her water bottles to school everyday. While I was away in Mexico on vacation, she wasn’t getting any. My first morning back I forgot to send her STUDENT with her to school. You know how it is when returning from vacation or holiday – It takes a couple days to get the schedule back on track.
A few hours into the day, I get a phone call from her teacher. She says to me… “I don’t know what Hannah’s problem has been today and towards the end of last week. She is like a totally different child and has COME COMPLETELY UNGLUED!”
I explained to her teacher that I had been out of town. – She doesn’t do well without me. This was a half truth. The truth is her symptoms of autism and struggles will flare up when she doesn’t get her supplements but especially her flower essences.
Autistic Surviving Math & Starting to Thrive
For some bizarre reason Hannah has always struggled in math. I say for some bizarre reason because she is wickedly smart, creative, highly naturally gifted in music. She is also extremely logically minded. When you add in her photographic memory you would expect her to test off the charts in math… Right?! One would think.
I am absolutely convinced that the flower essence GARDENIA was the reason for Hannah’s ability to meet her CRCT in Math. We started her on it (on and off) from middle school on. The first year we started was the first time she met the math standard testing. Granted it modified test to give her a little extra time only because timed tests stress her out. Even if she doesn’t need extra time! Every subsequent year she met and taking regular tests. Plus she even started gaining a little ground! She exceeds on the CRCT for all other subjects.
How Do You Know It is the Flower Essences & Not Supplements?
This is a valid question! I always get asked this by my friends in the autism community. The older the girls get the harder it is to get them to take their supplements consistently.
For Hannah it is not an issue of her not being able to or not wanting to swallow pills. She will swallow up to a handful at a time individually (without water even!) They eat at strange times – They hole up in their rooms like hermits. It can be difficult to keep them on a regimen of taking supplements consistently.
Oddly, this doesn’t happen with the flower essences. They want to take them. In fact every time one of them gets hurts the first thing they reach for is the PEACE. I think with the flower essences they FEEL an immediate change. This isn’t true with supplements – Although it is! Don’t expect if you don’t get enough B vitamins EVERY DAY that you can be mentally sharp and emotionally stable!
Which Flower Essences Do You Recommend for Autism?
Every time I tell Hannah’s story to friends in the autism community, this is what they all want to know. It’s been on my heart for the longest time to get all my thoughts posted on the Flower Essences most helpful in autism. Well I have finally completed it (at least for now). I’m sure as we develop and research new flower essences they’ll make the list. If they are helpful for autistic tendencies I’ll add them here.
We have personally used every flower essence described on the page at some point or another. They all have tremendous value in addressing her autistic symptoms. It’s just which autism symptoms are most bothersome, hindering, and disabling her at the time. So if you have an autistic child who needs help surviving school & to improve their math skills, I think they are worth a try!
