Bach flower remedies can help you tackle the emotional and mental challenges of losing weight. For best results, work with a trained Bach flower remedy practitioner or homeopath. While Bach flower remedies are considered safe when taken as directed, it is a good idea to talk with your physician before beginning any weight loss plan or taking any supplements.

Elm is another remedy to consider when you are feeling overwhelmed. If you blame yourself or feel guilty, consider pine.
