I want to tell you what a wonderful experience that seminar was. The jokes, stories, presents, handouts, information, food, encouragement, and welcoming atmosphere… were so enjoyable. You put so much into providing an excellent course. I went there very exhausted and came home with a smile. I had to go to work right away, but I will love really drinking in the information and believe it will be clear to me… I can now read and look back and connect… fun, fun, fun. I’m going to let it unfold and see what appears… Patty

Loved the in-class mini exercises. The recall exercises are very helpful for cementing the remedy profiles. The instructor was well organized, pleasant, has good experience with remedies and good real life case histories.

Thank you John. I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have you and the flower remedies to help me through these difficult times. My sincere thanks, have a lovely Spring, Barb April 2nd, 2015
Dear John, thank you very much with the deepest appreciation from my heart. I have been working with John for over a year now using the Bach flower remedies. My case has been very complex and emotional. I have been diagnosed with two rare Neurological conditions that put’s stress and challenges my Brain to function normally. I also lost my dear service dog Dylan several months before consulting with John, which created more emotional and fearful issues. I could not stop crying each time I spoke of Dylan. It has been well over a year that I first listened to John’s interview on Portland’s KBOO radio station speaking about the Bach flower remedies. Today I am happier, more patient, calmer, rational in observation, steadier in problem solving and decision making. I now can speak of Dylan without crying. Happily I have been improving and I am feeling much better than ever. John you have been so kind and patient listening to me and each consultation has helped me to stay focus on my life’s mission. Thank you again, Barbara B. May 27th, 2014 Portland.
I have to share this with you about the power of the Rescue Remedy. A client of mine has a 12 year old daughter who has ADD and depression and they discovered cuts on her forearm last week…
She left my office last night with Rescue Remedy (and your info.) and this is the text I received today;
Update: ” C” and I went and planted our feet to become grounded for 15 min yesterday. She then was eager to try the drops for another dose. She slept well last night and woke up refreshed this morning. She asked if she could have her water again with the Rescue Remedy in it this morning and I got a text after school saying, “mom this stuff must work because I’m feeling happy”! So thank you! Stefanie D. May 15th, 2014 Arkansas.
Hi John, I’m watching Dr. Oz today and his show is about anti-depressants. Those in the medical field are finally realizing how over prescribed and wrongly prescribed anti-depressants are. How little doctors are trained in this area and the Rx can actually make us worse. You and I spoke about this and I just wanted to let you know that the show really addressed this and Dr. Oz is watched by a huge audience. I am so thankful that I have gotten off them, all my anti-depressants. I know the reason I’ve been able to taper off them with minimal problems are because of the the Bach Flower Remedies. Thank you John for all your help and support . I have been wanting to check in with you anyway and let you know I’m off the stuff and love Bach Flower remedies! Best regards, Mary D. April, 2013 Oregon.
It worked from the first drop. Thank you so much. Sally from Naples, FL. 2009
I have to admit that I was a complete skeptic about these Bach Flower Remedies. I took the remedies so that I could honestly tell you that I did, but I really didn’t believe that it would work. As you know, for months I had been waking up in the middle of the night unable to go back to sleep. After about a week, I was sleeping through the night and just waking up a little early. My sleep patterns have continued to improve and its really helped with my energy level. I also believe that the other issues that I was having are improving as well. Thank you so much for your advice. You’ve turned me into a true Bach Flower remedies believer! Julie H. Portland, Oregon 2009
I just wanted to say Thank you so much for the rescue remedy spray. I have been under a great deal of stress lately and I tried the spray 2 days in a row and have noticed the difference. Thanks again for relieving some of my stress. Debbie. from Peachtree City, GA. 2008
Thanks so much for the wonderful seminar on the Bach Flower Remedies this past weekend. I keep thinking about the seminar and the flower remedies. This knowledge will stay with me the rest of my life. Thanks. Heidi from Seattle, WA. 2007
Just wanted to drop you a note and tell you how wonderful it was to meet you and attend your seminar recently. I’m so excited about the Bach flower remedies, and my continued learning on the subject matter. Thanks. Vicky from Seattle, WA. 2005
Thank you for the re-introduction to The Bach Remedies. I understand so much more about them now and am really enjoying the benefits. You’re a great teacher! All my love, Diane from Chicago, IL. 2003
I want to thank you. As you know I am a heme-pelagic from the accident I got into some time ago. I started dosing four drops four times a day and by the time I did the second dose I noticed some responses. Unusual? My left arm and leg started feelings like pins and needles. I believe that is a good thing. Slowly I have feeling in my left side and it is reacting to some stimulus. I have to do many physical exercises to get those results. You’ll hear from me as I notice changes. It’s good documentation. Thank you, M. from Wadley, AL. 2000
Hi John, Sammy my Amazon Parrot used to really freak out if I didn’t come to directly his cage when I got home. His temper tantrums have stopped but he really still begs for all my attention. After a month now he seems more content and calmer however I realize I do leave him alone too often and he is a social creature. I may have to give him to someone who can give him the attention and love he deserves? So far he is better but time will tell. Jake P. Spokane, WA. 2002
Dear Mr. Frieden
She (Baby) is such a nervous dog and we truly found her to be much calmer and easier to train while we were using these flower remedies on her. Thank you for your guidance. Yours truly, Mrs. K. Palm Beach, Florida. 2000
John this was just amazing to see the change. Only after five days of dosing her with the flower remedy drops Sandy, my Shelty appears to be normal again? Sandy as you remember was so fearful of everything and also would attack anyone coming close to my gates around the house. Sandy would crash herself into the gates and lose all control. She doesn’t do that at all any longer. She is calm, rational, collected and playful like my other three dog’s. Thank you so much. It really is a complete turn around to normalcy. Jackie S. Palm Beach, Florida 2000
John, thank you very much for all your time, effort and genius working with my dear pet’s and myself. This a a re-cap of the past three months. As you can remember it all was fine having my one Dog Cloe, mix Shepard and three adult Cat’s. One day I decided to bring home a second Dog, Tanny so Cloe would not feel lonely. Tanny was younger than the first, at a year and a half old, part Huskie and Shepard mix. Well, Cloe and Tanny did not hit it off well at all. They would get into terrible fights which usually ended up needing an emergency Vet visit! The Cat’s were petrified and held up in the wash room as they would spray everywhere from fear of their lives. After the first month of dosing the girl’s they seemed a little better with each other but still fighting at least once a week. The ego of them both was so strong. The Cat’s would still not leave the laundry room. The second month dosing all the pet’s and adding more drops of the flower remedies in their water bowls was a bit of a better change. Sometimes the girl’s almost seemed to like each other and play occasionally. Then suddenly the fight would start up again and another emergency Vet visit. The cat’s would peek out somewhat but always returning quickly to the laundry room. It was actually the third month that I really noticed a difference in their behavior especially after my consultation with you when I started taking the remedies for my emotional needs. I really had no idea that my energies could affect my Pet’s? There was a calming and an acceptance between the girls that I had not seen before. Cloe had accepted Tanny into the family finally and Tanny gave the respect Cloe wanted as the Alpha. They began to really like each other and play often. Finally peace! The poor Cat’s that were held in the laundry room began to leave and explore the house and did not spray any longer. Amazing how the energy had shifted when I began working with the flower remedies and began to heal emotionally. Best always John, and thank you very much, Margaret K. Coral Springs, Fla. 2000
