Bach Flower Remedies Oak
Advantages: Natural homeopathic remedy, made me feel better when suffering from persistant bug.
Disadvantages: Doesn't taste nice in the slightest, but it's ok when diluted using water method
Dr Edward Bach invented 38 different homeopathic remedies over 75 years ago using natural extracts from flowers and plants. Each variety of flower remedy is said to have it's own properties, but the Oak remedy in particular is said to be good for people who are struggling and fighting to get well from an illness, and who are annoyed at their sickness but fight against it.
Having previously tried several different kinds of the Bach flower remedies and had positive results, I tried the Oak flower remedy when I was struggling to get over a very persistant flu bug.
I bought a bottle of Oak flower remedy at an online homeopathy shop for £4 for a 20ml bottle, and I can recommend buying them online as they are often easier to find there than on the highstreet. It can be difficult to find the full range of 38 varieties in high street chemists and health food shops.
The Oak variety of flower remedy comes in a small glass bottle with a pipette top, like an eye dropper, which makes dispensing drops quick and simple. The Oak remedy itself is made from Oak infused with natural spring water and a grape brandy alcohol preservative to made sure the remedy has a longer shelf life.
The drops of flower remedy can either be taken directly onto the tongue, which it the easiest but the most unpleasant tasting way to take the remedy - the flower remedy is very alcoholic in it's taste, which I don't like at all. The other recommended method, and the one I use, is to put drops into a glass of water and then sip at it. I much prefer using this method as even though it's not as direct a method, the taste is barely noticable when diluted to such an extreme.
Homeopathic remedies like Dr Bach's Oak flower remedy might not work for everyone, but I found that for me, it helped me feel much better and had positive effects. I noticed a few hours after taking the remedy in water that I felt more positive about getting over my irritating sickness bug. Rather than feel like going back to bed and not getting up for days, I felt more hopeful that I would be better soon, which indeed I was.
I know that quite a lot of people might think homeopathic remedies such as this Oak flower remedy only create a placebo effect. Given it helped my mood improve, made me feel much more positive and was a low enough price though, I found that the Oak remedy worked for me and can recommend it.
Summary: Oak remedy made me feel better able to fight persistant bug and feel better.
