Editorial Reviews

Review

"There are three things in this book I feel are particularly appreciated contributions to the field. First, that you so clearly and simply explain why flower essences are needed by the whole family when one family member is having the problem. Second, you go into a lot of thought-provoking detail about how the person selecting the essence is a part of the 'system', and can therefore either be part of the problem, or part of the solution - the power of the 'therapeutic relationship' being in my estimation entirely under-rated. And third, I was very much interested in your comments about the potential for using flower essences with an Asian population." --Deborah Bier, PhD, Publisher & Co-Editor of Vibration Magazine, Author of The Encyclopedia of Vibrational Essences

The flower essence therapy system of the late British G.P. (later bacteriologist and pathologist) Edward Bach is not exactly unknown in the Bay Area, but this is the first American guide we've seen written with families in mind. Yeo, a Sunnyvale pharmacist and Bach Foundation Registered Practitioner, believes that "Dr Bach's essential message is that all ills of mankind are spiritual in nature" and that his essences "act gently yet powerfully "to rid body and mind of negative thoughts and emotions that make us ill. A blend of essay and manual, Healing The Family also explains the seven groups of essences (which treat loneliness, fear, oversensitivity and other stressors), and instructs parents how to choose the appropriate essence(s) and how to use them with both children and adults. (Morever, Yeo doesn't forget the possible ramifications of such treatment, noting "It is tempting to make use of the essences to 'correct' the people who are close to us.") It's an absorbing and thought-provoking little book. --Parents Press Magazine (Berkeley, CA), Sept 2006 issue,

If you currently have a family or are working through issues of your childhood family or if you just want to broaden your understanding of your role and impact on the 'bigger picture family' of humankind - Healing The Family with Bach Flower Essences is for you! A well written, user friendly guide that will help you accurately and with confidence select remedies to help shift, change and transmute lifelong emotional challenges and personality imbalances. --Nancy SantoPieto, Chakracologist, Feng Shui Expert and Best Selling Author of Feng Shui & Health: The Anatomy of A Home

Above and beyond the use of the essences is the author's simple and economic use of prose.

Format: Paperback
"The true causes of dis-ease are negative personality traits, attitudes and emotions... . By falsely identifying with them, we have forgotten and lost connection to our spiritual nature. The ways in which we lose ourselves are both highly individual and universal. Dr. Bach used a model of seven group types and 38 essences to describe the pathways in which we have turned away from our essential state. To understand the essences is to understand ourselves and to begin a process of self-discovery, of learning how to recover essence and empower true health in every way. ... Cultivating conscious intent and using the essences to release unwanted energetic forms of past habits in combination is therefore the true pathway to health. ... Because of the unique nature of treating the person, not the problem, one needs to re-orientate one's mind towards this concept before understanding the essences."

The above quotes from the book, Healing the Family with Bach Flower Essences, is a summary of the basic premise of the book, as well as the underlying philosophy of educating the reader in regard to using the original Bach essences in the context of self-help family therapy. It is, if you will, a psychological study and understanding of family dynamics that provides one with a "global" view based on essence "types."
The book is divided into three main sections:

1. "Dr. Bach and his system"--includes information on the basic concepts and describes the 38 essences;
2.

Format: Paperback
I have read countless excellent books and writings "explaining and teaching" the use of Bachflower Remedies to anyone willing to learn them. However, Yeo Soo Hwa's book surpasses these by teaching practical application and use of the Remedies by any community of individuals connected to each other on a more than "friend" level. Her explanations of the use of the Remedies within the family are insightful and empathetic; her ability to define situations in which a particular Remedy would be helpful or called for is outstanding.

For some individuals, it is not enough to merely explain which Remedy does what. When a family group seeks emotional help, this group must be guided in a direction that leads them to the help they need to heal and to re-build; not simply left on their own to figure it out as best they can. Soo Hwa does this in a most gentle and compassionate manner. However, she never overlooks the fact that emotional healing takes commitment on the part of the individual - and she continually points out to the reader that even when the symptom seems under control, the main issue may not yet be resolved. She goes further to help the reader understand the whole and how to treat the whole and not just the symptom.

It is reassuring to know that this important book for healing and contentment, written in such a down-to-earth manner, is available to anyone at any time. The book makes a superb gift; it is a loving and tender way to reach out to a friend or family member in need of help and solutions.

We do not live as individuals but as part of a holistic family which includes everyone we come in contact with. This book does a very good job of explaining the uses of the Bach Flower Remedy approach within a family unit based on the types of energy which surrounds certain events and dynamics within that family. I have read multiple books on the Bach remedies, and they have all been good, but Yeo Soo Hwa has a special gentleness and understanding of family dynamics and how they affect us as individuals. I have put her recommendations to good use and have seen healing take place within my family during a most difficult year of birth and death. I recommend this book highly for those who want to understand how we affect each other and are willing to do the work to recognize and mend feelings on an energetic level.

Format: Paperback
"Healing The Family, in my view, is the best presentation on applying the healing capabilities of Bach Flower Essences that I have seen. In addition, and by design, it considers the influence of the environment of the patient and not just their symptoms. Above and beyond the use of the essences is the author's simple and economic use of prose. At nearly every page, I marveled at the simplicity and elegance of her presentation. There can be no question; this book was brought forth from love and the compassion to relieve the suffering of others."

Format: Paperback
This is a terrific book for so many reasons. Unlike other encyclopedia-style books which are referred to for descriptions of a specific remedy, HEALING THE FAMILY manages to immerse the reader in the entire Bach Remedy experience so that once you've read the 160-odd pages you have a complete understanding of the purpose and practice of Bach Flower Essences.

I first read this book when I was new to the concept and I learned an enormous amount from it. I referred to it often. Since then I have completed two of the three levels of education towards becoming a registered Bach practitioner and I've recently re-read this book from cover to cover. I was astonished at how much more it had to offer and how much more I gained. The author uses every-day situations to demostrate the best use of the essences and shares her intuitive understanding of their nuances. She also offers invaluable explanations that are hard to find elsewhere, such as "...taking eight drops does not double the effect of four drops. Instead, the return to balance depends on how often we take the effective dose."

Simply, beautifully and well written, this book is a must for anyone interested in healing with Bach flowers - no matter what level of knowledge you have.
