"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,
