On the Lighter Side: Flower Essences and Foods

SiNE-Fruit Medley2256882Hi SiNE,

I have two questions related to the rule of not taking the flower essences within a certain time before or after eating: 1.) Does the same rule apply for taking medication? 2.) What about if the food you eat is the same as the essence you use? For example, what about eating almonds along with using the Almond Flower Essence.

Best regards,

Hi, Arthur,

Great questions. No, that rule doesn’t apply at all to medicines. Some medications need to be taken with food, actually, for better absorption or to prevent nausea. Flower essences, on the other hand, are vibrational much like homeopathy. Allopathic medicines are biochemical and pass through the digestive system and blood stream in order to function.

Fruit - AppleIt is an excellent idea to enjoy the food in the same time frame when you are taking the corresponding essence. Fresh fruits, nuts, and vegetables are great for the body. They will not affect the essence’s benefits. In fact anything that makes us more aware of our efforts to balance and raise our energy is great!

I hope this helps, Arthur, in a nutshell, if you don’t mind the pun for Almond and Coconut Essences!

In perfect well-being,

Lila Devi
