Bach Rescue Remedy Pastilles
Advantages: they work
Disadvantages: expensive, artificial sweeteners
I've always been a bit of a skeptic when it comes to alternative medicine believing to stick to the more mainstream drugs. I was in the chemist one Sunday afternoon, my poor kitten had been stung by a bee in his mouth and the vet had told me to buy an over the counter antihistimane for him; I was feeling really upset and a bit panicky and the Bachs Rescue Pastilles were sitting right beside the till so I picked them up. I had used Rescue Remedy for my driving test many years ago and to be honest don't know if it made a difference or not but I figured in the absence of valium and vodka then the pastilles were worth a try.
Rescue remedy is a combination of five flower essences. These are rock rose, impatiens, clematis, star of bethlehem and cherry plum. Together these flowers are meant to help you deal with everything from feeling terror or panic to helping you deal with irrational thoughts and lack of self control. The original Rescue Remedy is sold in little bottles but the pastilles are far more convenient to take out and about and contain no alcohol. A little tin of pastilles costs around £5 for a pack of about 20 sweets.
Each pastille looks like a little yellow flower. They are very gummy when you suck or chew them and don't have much taste. They are pleasant enough and not overly sweet. When you feel anxious you chew a pastille as required.
I think these pastilles do actually work. I've been under a lot of stress over the past couple of weeks and several times I have felt really jittery and a bit shaky and I have chewed a pastille and it has dampened down my anxiety. They don't have any side effects at all (although they do contain sweeteners so if you eat too many they may have a laxative effect) and unlike conventional drugs don't make you feel drowsy. They have helped me calm down enough in order to concentrate on the work I need to do instead of being so jittery I am distracted by nerves and they leave me feeling clear headed.
I would recommend these pastilles for dealing with mild anxiety as they have really helped me. The only downside is the cost and the fact they contain sweeteners. After having some success with the pastilles I am going to explore the rest of the Bach flower extract range.
Summary: worth a try if you have mild anxiety
