The science of cellular biology has now determined that health issues are the inevitable result of long-held negative emotions
Studies have shown that negative emotions actually weaken your body, while positive emotions strengthen your body. Shame has the most devastating effect, followed by guilt, apathy, grief, fear, resentment, anxiety, craving, anger, hate, and stubborn inflexibility
Where does it hurt? Your bio-energetic process is a combination of verbal, intellectual, physical and psycho-emotional states of harmony or conflict. For instance, the left side of your body reflects the problem has its roots in your past, while the right side reflects how to feel about your future. This isn't conjecture. It is simply how the limbic brain functions
Injuries or pain generally appear on one side of the body. One-sided pain issues reflect the side of you that feels confused or unsupported
Your left side Based on the functions of your brain's hemispheres, your left side is receptive, or yin. It senses/feels, interprets, and responds to incoming stimulus from your environment. It holds your experiences, your emotional self, your memories, and emotional joy or pain
Your right side organizes and moves you forward into the future. It governs how you interact with the world. It is, therefore, a yang energy
When you are experiencing problems on your right side, you may feel stuck or hampered in moving forward. Or you may be experiencing unwanted change that is causing fear, reluctance, or trepidation
Your front side reveals your social or public self, the part of you that the world sees. It reflects those aspects of yourself that are active ingredients in your day-to-day living. This includes communication, desire, caring, loving, happiness, sadness. These show in your face, posture and body language
Negative emotions reflect in your face and change the appearance of eyes, expression, skin texture, color and tension. These physical indicators help us accurately assess what is really going on in your heart and mind when we test your photo. In part, this is how we can analyze your photo to accurately determine which essences you need. We can actually pinpoint your specific unconscious emotional states by the facial imbalances and physical symptoms they manifest!
Your back side reflects private and unconscious elements of your life. This side becomes the storehouse for everything you don't want to deal with or don't want other people to see
Hidden or unexpressed feelings become frozen into the structure of your body. That means a lot of negative emotions become stored along your spine and in the backs of your legs. Most of your powerful emotions such as anger, fear and grief are stored in your back. This pulls your body out of balance
Think of your body like a house, with the exterior and living room all neatly arranged to present an appropriate social image, while the attic, basement, closets, and back yard are crammed with junk, memories and remnants of your life
This is more than a metaphor. Your home actually reflects your mental/emotional state quite accurately. Clutter (whether in drawers and closets or spread openly on counters) reflects the presence of old emotional baggage and incoherent mental and emotional processes. So, you DEFINITELY need to be working on your emotional issues with some living flower essences!
Why you need a 'reset' Situations and attitudes may eventually change. But, the initial damage created by your body's 'chemical programming' won't change unless you deliberately 'reset' it. For instance, your heart may have begun to show problems because you lacked love for many years. You may not have had any symptoms at that time. Now you have found love and are happy. But, your heart is showing signs of damage
That's because you haven't cancelled out the earlier 'chemical programming' at the cellular level. In fact, lifestyle changes will often precipitate the release of beneficial neuropeptides that may actually bring the initial issue to the forefront of your awareness to show you where you were out of balance
The good news is that you have the power within you to increase your vibration and change your state of health!
We can assist you ...
Where does the root of your health issues begin? Have you suffered an accident or injury? What was happening in your life around that time? Recall your mental state and how you were FEELING. When an accident occurs, weak or incoherent emotional areas are where an injury will gravitate
Spinal column and skeleton are the foundation and support for your body Are you laying a solid foundation in your life? Do you have a support structure of family and friends?
Back pain can reveal feeling unsupported. Or it can indicate that you are hiding how you really feel

Upper (thoracic) vertebrae connect to your heart chakra. (see also heart and lungs) This spinal region connects you to love and joy.

Mid-thoracic section of your spine can affect your stomach, digestion, liver, gall bladder, adrenal gland, pancreas, and reproductive organs. Middle back pain is carrying the emotional weight of the past. It can also reveal you are not listening to your needs, are feeling divided, and are feeling fear, anxiety, or lack of confidence

Lumbar (lower) vertebrae and tailbone can affect the reproductive organs, hips, large intestine, immune system, kidneys and bladder. Since this area of your body relates to safety and security, the consequences of your childhood show up in this area of your body, as do issues that make you feel threatened or insecure
Lumbar supports your spine and torso. This area is where family and security issues surface. Damage here will block the root chakra, leading you to feel insecure and anxious because you turn your personal power and happiness over to others. You may fear success or failure. You will perceive a lack of financial support in your life--making you feel as though you are struggling alone. A victim mentality may be be developing. Are you blaming others?
The sacral area is your connection to magic and power. When blocked, your creativity and sexuality may become stifled. Feelings of jealousy, suspicion, or envy may surface. Routinely crossing your legs or arms, or clasping your hands together in front of your stomach or lower abdomen is an indication of weakened energy in the lumbar region

Headaches and hitting your head are the equivalent of a rap on the head to say "wake up and pay attention". You are ignoring your intuition--your gut feelings, or you are ignoring your own needs
Helpful Live Flower Essence Fusions: Clear & Protect or Intuition to enhance your intuition. To encourage self-care try Be Kind to Yourself
Pain in the back of the head and neck C1-C5 (where your skull joins to the spine) is where guilt and self-recrimination hides. A pain in the neck often means you believe you have made mistakes and haven't forgiven yourself. You (and perhaps others) are judging yourself harshly
Helpful Live Flower Essence Fusions: Forgive My Past ~ Self Forgiveness ~ Forgiveness ~ Guilt Release ~ I Am Deserving. You'll find these under Healing Your Family Issues
Chronic pain Resentment and bitterness are like acid. They cause inflammation and pain. Stubborn, inflexible resentment goes to the knees, wrists, shoulders and joints--the parts of your body that are designed to be open and flexible. Arthritis is bottled-up hurt

Eyes are like windows. They provide your perspective of the world. Nearsighted people tend to live in the moment and not plan for their future. Farsighted people tend to plan for the future and project their thoughts to the 'what if's'. They struggle with staying in the present moment
Helpful Live Flower Essence Fusions: Flow
Eye problems can indicate you aren't looking at something clearly, or don't want to really examine something. Check the windows in your home. Are they dirty and murky, too? Often something as simple as cleaning your windows or getting new glasses can tell your brain "I want to see this situation more clearly"
Hearing problems or excess wax buildup indicate you really don't want to hear what others are saying, or accept what is going on around you. You may be stubborn or fixed in your own ideas. You are effectively 'tuning out' the world and those around you and choosing your own little world
Helpful Live Flower Essence Fusions: I Am Flexible
Your mouth and tongue are how you taste the world. Taste is a vital part of your senses, your 'sensuality', your ability to enjoy pleasure. When you lose any of your senses, you are disconnecting from the physical world. When you lose taste, you are punishing yourself by denying yourself pleasure or fullfillment of your desires
Your mouth also is part of your throat chakra--how to express yourself, communicate with others, and ask for what you need
Learn why you need to pay attention to your senses ...

Neck, cervical vertebrae, and upper shoulders support your head and must be flexible. Tension and stiffness in the neck can indicate inflexibility--not willing or afraid to look at other possibilities. Neuropeptides released by stress and fear gravitate to the neck and shoulder area, causing tightness, pain and constriction
Your neck sits between your brain and your heart--the two electric command centres of your body. Your neck is the bridge between your head (logic) and your feelings (heart/body). Since your neck is the most narrow point on your body, energy can easily become restricted here
Electrical impulses passing from your heart to your brain integrate emotional desires and feelings with analytical thinking. Differences between what the brain thinks and the heart desires can leave you feeling scattered, stuck, confused, or powerless, even dizzy or off-balance. Decisions become difficult. When feelings (fear, self doubt, overwhelm, etc) conflict with logic (organization, focus, action, stategy, etc), stress results
Disparity between heart and mind is the root cause of many physical disorders and dysfunctions, particularly auto-immune disorders such as Lupus. You may be judging and punishing yourself harshly, causing your body to literally attack and punish itself
Helpful Live Flower Essence Fusions: Stress Relief essences or Self-love essences such as My Authentic Self ~ Love Yourself ~ Self-Forgiveness ~ Forgive My Past ~ I Am Deserving
Thyroid & Thymus The throat/thymus area is the place where your soul enters and leaves your body. A blockage or constriction in your throat area can make you feel ungrounded, light-headed or 'spacey', and can cause anxiety or feelings that you don't want to live
Helpful Live Flower Essence Fusions: Soul Retrieval ~ Throat Chakra ~ Heart Speak ~ Restore ~ Faith Hope & Trust
Are you experiencing chronic anxiety high in your chest? Look first to an organic cause such as potassium deficiency. Your cells 'suffocate' without the proper balance of potassium and sodium. Symptoms of potassium deficiency include one or more of these symptoms: unexplained anxiety, heart fibrillation, sighing, coated tongue, oedema, leg cramps
Solution: Drink an electrolyte beverage or eat figs, almonds, apricots, bananas or kelp for a few days and see if you begin to feel better. Avoid carbonated beverages, as phosphorus depletes potassium
Throat chakra expresses and communicates. Are you communicating your needs? This area of the body relates to your sense of social responsibility, social interaction, and, therefore, your perception of your value to others. Those with an excessive sense of responsibility toward others, especially family, will often experience injustice because they don't speak up or ask for what they want. They give and give without receiving, as this is how they perceive they are needed and of value to others. These people often experience thyroid issues

Arms and hands allow us to reach out to others. Are you stifling your need to reach out and connect with others? Are you feeling alone and isolated? Are you feeling rejected or as though you don't belong?

Fingers point to the areas in life where you need to relinquish control and let go
Index finger points at others to lay blame. Your ego is feeling bruised. So, you may be feeling resentful or angry. Left finger indicates a woam. Reight index finger indicates a man
Middle finger also relates to anger. Who are you feeling anger toward? The past (or a woman) is indicated by the left finger. The right middle finger pertains to a situation in the present or future (or a man).

Lungs and heart sustain your life. When you aren't sharing love and taking in life, your heart and lungs begin to deteriorate. Deep grief affects your lungs and heart. You must stop feeling sorry for yourself, thinking that no one loves you! That vibration is killing you!
The only way to actually FEEL love is to express it yourself. When you are in a loving state, your heart chakra and whole chest area expands. Your body's vibration rises. You feel happy, elevated, alive. You feel connected to something larger than yourself. Loving someone--anyone is a wonderful gift to yourself!
You do not have to have personal love in order to feel love. You can feel unconditional love for everyone in your life, for humanity, for your pets, for the awe-inspiring beauty of our planet, for yourself. You can take action to seek closeness with others, instead of waiting for people to come to you.
The important thing is that you allow yourself to feel and express love. This attracts love from others. Get a pet and love it. Volunteer to help others. Let yourself be overwhelmed by beauty. Let your love out!

Cancer can indicate a deep secret, hatred, guilt, or grief 'eating away' at you. At the most basic level, your cells have forgotten they belong to you. There may be a disowning of some aspect of self or yourpersonal history. Breast and uterine cancer reveals there has been a lack of nurturing or self-nurturing in your life, or an inability to nurture others

Stomach and digestion are your physical assimilation process. Likewise, you assimilate information from your environment and interpret it with your thoughts and emotions. Digestive problems occur when you have an inability to 'digest' or absorb what is going on in your environment or inside your head or heart
Constipation reveals that you are not properly processing your experiences and letting them go without resistance. You are being too controlling or fearful
Diarrhea reveals you are mentally over-processing
Helpful Live Flower Essence Fusions: Stress relieving essences such as Flow ~ Worry Free ~ Serenity ~ EMF Shield ~ Rescue & Revive
Liver and gall bladder help all your other organs work together harmoniously and in balance. Your liver also holds your willpower to live or survive. If your liver or gallbladder becomes constricted, energy slows to a standstill. This creates a backlog of energy that erupts as anger, irritation, impatience and frustration
Negative emotions such as resentment and anger weaken your liver. Diseases of the liver, such as Hep-C show long-held suppressed anger. Resentment and anger will also manifest as arthritis and degenerative states of your bones. There is also a correlation between anger and heart disease , stroke (constriction of energy), and urinary problems ('pissed off')
Helpful Live Flower Essence Fusions: Adrenaline dissolving essences such as Dissolving Anger ~ Drama Free ~ I Am Flexible ~ Serenity ~ Divorce Heal
Urinary System clears your body of toxins and impurities. It removes elements your body has processed and no longer needs
On an emotional level, the urinary system will reflect how you process negative feelings and emotional trauma, as well as matters of honesty and truthfulness. When you have negative feelings that are gathering but are left unexpressed, or are not being honest about what you feel, your urinary system will let you know
Incontinence can indicate feeling a loss of control, or unacknowledged fears

Reproduction is your most creative process. It is how you expand and extend your inner self into your environment. Stifling your creativity can lead to problems with your reproductive system
2nd chakra deals with your self identity, individuality, creativity, sexuality, and your ability to experience pleasure. It's how you experience yourself in relation to others
1st chakra is your root being. It holds your survival issues, your sense of personal security
Problems with your reproductive system--uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, testes, fertility--show that your 1st and 2nd chakra are out of balance. You may be experiencing fear and insecurity
Insecurity can also refer to insecurity and worry about your future child. You may believe 'the world is not a safe place', leading to infertility
Feeling vulnerable can lead to shut down of the reproductive organs, or problems such as dryness, irritation, or constriction in the vagina or vulva. After all, it is the most vulnerable spot on a woman--the place where you allow someone else to literally 'enter you'
Helpful Live Flower Essence Fusions: Shield or transformational self-healing essences such as Womb Heal ~ Sexual Abuse Release ~ Trauma Release ~ Fertility
Hips, legs and calves are how you move forward in life. Your legs, calves and feet store much of your trauma, resentment, jealousy, and emotional pain, both past and present, especially in regard to your family. Problems in this area show a block in the root chakra, which makes you feel fearful of moving forward. You may feel stuck and unable or unwilling to make changes to your life. You may be experiencing issues about your self identity and self confidence. You may not feel support in your life--as though you are the one supporting everyone else, or as though you cannot support yourself

Essences to release feeling 'stuck' such as Flow ~ I Am Flexible ~ Adapt to Change ~ Moving On ~ Brave New Future ~ Proactive. Essences to increase confidence such as Empowerment ~ Success
Knees, ankles and feet hold the energy of your negative emotions. That is because the vibration of negative emotions is lower, heavier, and more dense, causing these feelings to drop into the lowest points of your body. Inflammation here shows you are nursing hurt feelings. Stubborn, inflexible resentment goes to the knees and joints--the parts of your body that are designed to be open and flexible. Are you being rigid, inflexible and unforgiving? Have you created too many rules in your life? Are you holding on to the past and supporting the heavy weight of this burden? Are you frustrated and hampered in trying to make changes? Or are you resisting change?

Essences to free you from the past such as Divorce Heal ~ Trauma Heal ~ Forgiveness ~ Brave New Future
Auto-immune disorders such as Lupus, Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia result from your body turning on itself. It's as though your brain perceives you as your own enemy
If how you respond to people and to life is different than how you really feel, your brain sends mixed messages within your body, confusing the neural impulses. Lack of authenticity, compromises to personal integrity, and lack of self-integration are self-destructive, as is the unconscious need to play a victim. Harbouring deep guilt, self-recrimination or self-loathing will eventually cause your body to punish itself
Unconditional self-love is a powerful stimulant to the immune system
