(NaturalNews) Many women go through life without experiencing much anxiety, worry, depression or insomnia. Some women have their bouts with these beasts but manage to find ways to cope with them and are not overcome by them. Then menopause arrives, and for a lot of women, it feels like the amplifier sounding these emotions has been turned up to the max. The increased anxiety is off the charts; no instrument can measure it. The insomnia that arrives intensifies the anxiety and vice versa. Any issue that you might worry about turns up the anxiety. People seem to be avoiding you. What can a woman do to manage this without taking toxic prescription drugs that the doctors expect you to stay on forever?

Flower essences are one possible solution to tame that menopausal anxiety beast and restore your ability to get a good night's sleep. Flower essences were discovered by Edward Bach, an English bacteriologist, pathologist and homeopathic practitioner, in the 1930s. Bach was a pioneer in understanding the connection between the energetics of each plant and the medicines that they offered to restore harmony. He worked with using them individually along with combining the different essences.

The flower essences are diluted, but they retain the energetics of the plant. A few drops are mixed with a carrier liquid, which could be brandy, apple cider vinegar or vegetable glycerin. What flower essences are there for anxiety, insomnia, worry and depression?

For Anxiety

Cherry Plum is for when you feel like you are losing it. It balances those feelings out, so you feel like you are stable and in control.

Gorse is for despair and pessimism.

Willow is for irritability, self-pity, "poor me."

Impatiens is for when those feelings of impatience, irritation and frustration arrive.

For Worry

Aspen is said to help with those worries and fears that arise for no apparent reason.

Red Chestnut is for worry or over-concernedness.

Rock Rose is for when that feeling of worry is overwhelming.

For Depression

Elm is for feeling overwhelmed and depressed.

Gentian is for when you feel discouraged and depressed.

Mustard is for deep gloom and depression that arrive for no real reason.

Wild Rose is for lack of motivation and apathy.

For Insomnia

Olive is for fatigue and lack of energy.

White Chestnut is for insomnia, sleeplessness and thoughts that will not go away.

The beauty of the flower essences are that there are no side effects. The energetics of the essences bring the emotions back into balance. When you are no longer anxious and depressed, your sleep improves and you stop worrying. Menopause can be very overwhelming for women, because so many changes are going on at one time. The flower essence Walnut is said to be good for women dealing with change. It helps you to let go of the past and come into harmony with the changes.

Flower essences can be combined in a blend that is designed for the individual woman. You can determine what essences you need, add a few drops of each essence into a small jar with an eye dropper lid and then fill with one of the carrier liquids mentioned earlier. Take a few drops under your tongue as often as you like.

Ah, peace and balance are restored. You find that people begin talking to you again. And life with menopause might actually be tolerable, if not downright enjoyable.
