A situation or a cluster of symptoms (exam nerves, sleeplessness, lack of energy or confidence, whatever) can have many emotional causes and this is something the Bach Practitioners know very well.

The most important think is to make the problem personal and ask ourselves: "I can't sleep and how does it make me feel? " Working with the original 38 Flower Remedies that Dr. Bach developed, we ignore the symptom and instead of that we look at the emotional root of the problem.
