Note From Amy: This first testimonial is the longest. Its a letter from the mo. It is in all my books and moved me to know that I had to get this healing modality out to women all over the world. This is about bipolar/rage/hospitalizations/lots of medications and another child On The Spectrum.
I would like to tell you all about a real live miracle that has happen to my family.. I have 2 boys both with special needs, one is 8 and since the age of 3 has been treated for bi-polar and ADHD with no results, and my other son is 7 and is on the spectrum.. Just to give you a bit of background on this, when my older son was 1 year I noticed a problem, at the age of 2 he started seeing specialists and by the age of 3 he was hospitalized in a children’s psychiatric unit. He continued to get hospitalized several times a year for the next 4 years. Doctors told me that his case was one of, if not the most severe case they had ever seen. No drugs or therapy worked for him. He had reactions to most. I almost lost him twice due to the drugs and people were turning there backs on us left and right. No one wanted to treat him, they marked him as an ” untreatable child.” He tried to take his life several times over that course claiming that “people were telling him to.” These same “people” were telling him to hurt other people as well. I was lost and devastated. My son could not be trusted with others or left alone for a second. We went through several schools, doctors, therapists, and specialists and he just got worse and worse until my biggest fear came true … I was told our only option left was residential treatment. In an effort to keep my son, I declined several times and of course had to deal with children and youth ( which saw things my way every time ) services. I was just a mother who loved her son unconditionally.
In the meantime – of all this I did not realize my younger son had problems of his own. He entered kindergarten and things began to show the most then. He spent his days in his own world, withdrawn from everyone, mostly sitting under his desk and rolling around on the floor. The teachers had given up on him and passed him through 2 grades even though he had not completed ANY work for the whole year. After a year of research and fighting with the school for almost 2 years I finally got him evaluated and low and behold he was found to be on the spectrum. So things for us got even more busy, more services, more people, more appointments, AND MORE ADVOCATING!
I started to feel overwhelmed a bit because things only got worse, never better. Still facing residential treatment I was grasping at straws. I had run out of time to stall and we had tried it all, until a very good friend came to me and told me to go look into natural cures .. I laughed for about 20mins., Did he really think that some herbs could help my son when $10,000 in the best meds in the field proved to do nothing for him? But after a long talk he was right, I was losing my son this was the only thing I had left to try!
I searched on the web for natural cures for mental illness and one thing that kept popping up was something called Flower remedies . I read everything I could on it and it seemed to good to be true. It claimed to [CURE- Paula wrote this, I cannot say cure, I am not a doctor] help mental illnesses with simple flower [oils-they are not oils they are extracts]. They were non-toxic and safe for children and they had NO interaction with ANY drugs. They could remain on there current meds and still take this and see a difference. The only thing they claimed is that some people broke out in a non hazardous rash that would go away. This was only due from toxins in the body coming out through the pores. So on a whim I started contacting names I found on a list of certified practitioners. …. NO ONE WAS ANSWERING! After 2 days of calling people with no answers, I found one woman in NJ who answered and agreed to give me a free phone consult. I spent 2 hours pouring my heart out to her and she just was the most compassionate person I had ever met. She started right away on a remedy for not just for both the children but myself as well to help with the stress. I was still skeptic but willing to try, I prepared myself for another dead end more so now because this seemed like a fantasy, the things they were saying this would do if it was true why wasn’t everyone on this miracle ?????? I received the package in just a few days and we started right away. She already told me that it takes about a month to see changes but to stick with it…… 2 WEEKS LATER … my younger son ( the one on the spectrum ) brought home his first 100 on his spelling test, I laughed hysterically, could this be true …. was it REALLY working,OMG! From then on I started getting piles of papers everyday from school with A’s and big C’s on them. I was in shock. He started making friends and after a meeting with the school I found out that he was now participating in activities, completing all his work HAPPILY and stopped all the crying he was doing in school. They asked me what we changed, they claimed he was a completely different child and said they didn’t know what happened but to keep doing what ever we were doing (I smiled inside for the first time in years.)
Now to take a look at my more severe older son, I was not seeing that much of a change at this point, we were still having issues with violence and temper tantrums and the school was still having a hard time. Two (2) weeks later the full month marker
to the day I would say, he had a break down in the car. He started telling me all kinds of things, personal things he was struggling with, and things that made him feel the way he does …. that was 4 months ago and the last day he hit someone!
He now has made a complete turn around and his doctors and therapists can not believe it either. In just 4 months of this treatment my 7 year old turned in to a happy, straight A student who has now had his medication forADHD taken down, and my 8 year old was taken off of 5 of his 7 medications and in the process of being weened off of the last 2! They are both doing GREAT and for the first time in 5 years my son is out of crisis!
I was a skeptic and now I thank God that he put this in my path. It truly was a miracle treatment and without it I may have lost my son. I employ anyone if you are in a situation like mine to try this, It may sound crazy but my family is living proof it really does work.
I thank you all for taking the time to read this long story =) but I felt the need to share our story with everyone in hopes that some of you can finally find the answers I did. I have done a lot of advocating not just for my own children but others as well, and I see lots of families just like mine struggling to find help and who feel like things will never change for them. I gain nothing but self satisfaction from writing this story, in hopes that even one child can reap the same benefits we have. My goal is and has always been to defend and help special needs children and I would be more then happy to help anyone who wants more info or has any questions about our success with this treatment .
Thank you again,
A while back I had asked if anybody had any experience with the flower remedies. With the feedback I received, we went ahead and called Amy D. Cohen and had her prepare remedies for ourselves and our autistic 4 year old son. I am glad that we did. The change in our son has been extremely positive. He almost completely stopped having episodes (Extreme meltdowns) or any meltdowns for that matter. He did a 180 in his activities in the pre school that he attends. They had been ready to cut his hours again, due to his behavior, and they rethought it, and did not cut his hours because his behavior had gotten so much better. We are awestruck at the change that Flower remedies has had on our son and our family, as a whole.
I was at my wits end. The hot flashes, mood swings, and forgetfulness I experienced due to menopause just wouldn’t let up and I lost my job because I couldn’t handle my responsibilities as before. I even had a moment, a thought, “Why bother…maybe I should just do myself in.” I was depressed. My gynecologist suggested that I take hormone therapy==that would keep me from having heart disease and osteoporosis. I gave in, not knowing other alternatives. One day I went to the New Life Festival and wandering down the many booths, happened to see a flower remedy practitioner doing a “special.” I signed up for an interview and remedy and followed the directions given by Amy Cohen. She kept in close touch over the telephone and internet, checking up on my progress as I continued to take the treatment and get stronger. Soon after starting the remedy I stopped hormone patches and felt better than I had for many months. The treatments work in a very quiet way. I am my old normal self, well, almost…again the ambitious, exercising, positive thinking woman…maybe with an occasional hot flash…but not anything I can’t handle anymore.
Menopause – Hot flashes, mood swings, depression
It’s been years since we first talked flower remedies. You reached out to me seeing a need for an immediate change. I was sinking overwhelmed by sudden emotions. The times were sad and came unexpectedly, so I wasn’t prepared (not that one ever is).
You said to try…and being open minded I did. I found myself detached (isn’t it what we are all supposed to be?) from the sadness. You adjusted the remedies; I stopped crying, analyzing, blaming myself. And then, the most beautiful thing happened. You gave me an outlet. You didn’t just let me be numb and OK, you gave me a remedy that helped me discover my I AM… You said-” let’s see what are you to do with your life?”…
You said – “would you like to try a remedy that will help you discover your passions?”…
I said “yes”. Every email from you ended with “Thank you for trusting me…” and so I did. So here I am today, three years later. I haven’t had a dull moment. I have been working non-stop on fulfilling my passions that have been pouring in from everywhere. Not one, not two…At some point I got on my knees and said- “God, please stop, I can’t handle it anymore, I am being pulled from all directions, it doesn’t make sense anymore!” By that moment, I myself got trained by you. I knew it was time for a break, a deep breath and contemplation. Before I was just me, living in an unconscious state of being. A wife, a daughter a mother of four. I always wanted to be more for me. I was hungry to know what I was the purpose of my life, but I was too busy with other things. Today I am a successful health coach, an author and skin care designer. I had all that in me, but it was all hidden inside me waiting to burst out at the right moment. Today, I have learned to accept everything with gratitude and if for some reason I cannot shut off my ego chatter, I mix myself a remedy and meditate. You said flower remedies were the energy medicine. This is the hardest part to understand by many, as understanding is a journey. But once you get that life is energy you will understand the remedies…
Finding Purpose & Passion Amidst Chaos
I am doing very well, thanks for all the help you have given me. On this date four years ago, I had just gotten out of a mental ward. I was having thoughts of suicide and was hurting all the way to my soul. When I was released to home, I was so afraid. I didn’t trust myself or anyone else really. I just knew I had people who love me and need me to try to stay alive. I got a little better as time passed until I met you about a year ago, I thought I would exist for however long I am granted time on this earth. Since I started taking your remedies, I haven’t felt that way. I am still doing great and use the last remedy you made for me once in a blue moon. It helps with anxiety very well. I have had a couple of trying times in the last couple of months but I had the confidence in myself to handle them, take responsibility for what needed to be done without guilt. It has been exhilarating.
Terrible Anxiety and Sadness
I’ve seen my best friend twice and yesterday I saw another friend for the first time in about 5 1/2 months. I’ve stayed over night at my younger sis & her bf for the third time tonight after I started the remedies. So the social anxiety is disappearing..I feel less anxious for sure! I haven’t had that feeling of pressure on my chest for almost two weeks (I had it for like 4 months straight almost without breaks)..I am less worried. I am able to talk with people more easily. The remedies are working 🙂 the steps out of my own space have been vital. And yeah I’ve been quite LAZY but that is partly because now I can better live in this body.. 🙂 and I can concentrate on the guitar better, but don’t really have the urge to play a lot yet. I am still far from normal but as you can see it has improved. The changes sort of “sneak in”.. I might suddenly realize certain symptoms aren’t present anymore… The tension in my body is still present but less than before. I think I feel a bit closer to God. I’ve actually been able to laugh too. If I could rate this condition I would say it has went from extremely low 2/10 up to 5/10 so far.
I’m grateful for the remedies!! Thank you.
Social Anxiety, Anxiety, Procrastination
I just want to write a thank you for the custom blends that you make for my husband and myself. It has made such a difference in our home. He is bi-polar and refuses to take his medicine, so it can be a real roller coaster at times. The blend that I am on helps me to cope with his behavior while maintaining my relationship with myself, my children and keeping up the home. The blend that he is on helps to keep his mood swings under control. I recommend your site to many others that are going through difficult issues. Thank you again!
Bi-Polar Dad/Husband- Was Abusive
Just wanted to let you know that I’m so happy with the changes I’ve had since using the remedies. The world seems like a different place to just a few months ago. Amazed at what a difference these have made, Thank you so much!
