Q. Have you ever try Flower Essences for bipolar disorders??? I am Flower Essences practitioner as well as a Cognitive Behavior Therapist educated in Venezuela.I have wonderful experiences with Flower Essences and Alternative Terapies.

A. i never tried flower essence in any medical situation. maybe i will, i think it's worth a try. but about Bipolar disorder- changing medications that work and, even though they have unpleasant side effects, proven to help- could have destructive outcome. so in this case i don't think that it's wise to do so.
