What are the remedies?

Our remedies stem from processes originally pioneered by the famous Greek physician Paracelsus and further developed by 20th century English physician and homeopath Dr. Edward Bach.  Dr. Bach knew that in order to affect overall health, one must first and foremost affect emotional wellbeing and so created a system of remedies developed from flowers and plants to bring about natural emotional balance.  We've combined crystals with these original remedies utilizing spagyric techniques to create unique remedies unlike anything else in the world today.

How are they made?

They are made by harvesting the necessary material according to specific astrological times, after which they are submerged in highly purified water for a three day ritual period, during which they are treated with additional energetic practices. After three days, the water is then imprinted with the energy of the plant and/or mineral and combined with any additional flower essence products and biodynamic alcohol to preserve as the mother tincture.  This tincture is then further diluted in organic alcohol to create the individual treatment bottles.

How do they work?

So while many theories abound as to why these remedies work (including vibrational and quantum energetic structures, homeopathic theories and bio-magnetic and acupuncture-related theories), the simple fact is that at this point, we just don't know.  

The theory we ascribe to for our emotional wellness remedies is technical, but if you're interested, bear with me and I'll explain.  It has to do with the basic lattice structure and electromagnetic sensitivity of all solid matter combined with crystal and plant matters' piezoelectric effect (as first discovered by brother physicists Pierre and Jacques Curie).  The piezoelectric effect allows mechanical energy to transduce into electromagnetic energy and vice versa (the effects of which are illustrated in electromagnetic circuits in everything from computers, cars, ultrasonic transducers, and sonar devices, to name a few).  Because of this energetic sensitivity and effect, it is not, therefore, a tremendous leap to deduce that these crystal and plant materials are also transmuting and/or amplifying additional and so far scientifically undetected energies, thus altering our mental and emotional states.

What does all of this mean for you?

Simply put, our remedies are a natural, gentle and profound way to change our emotional state.  As Dr. Bach put it: 

'they (remedies) are able, like beautiful music, or any gloriously uplifting thing which gives us inspiration, to raise our very natures, and bring us nearer to our Souls: and by that very act, to bring us peace, and relieve our sufferings.’

About Richard Aab - Founder, Ascend Essences

As a small family of highly sensitive and energetically reactive people, it was my mission to find a natural and gentle way to help balance our emotions.  In addition, my wonderful wife, Kerri, is a survivor of childhood trauma and lives with a disorder known as C-PTSD, a debilitating condition that modern science has yet to find a way to effectively treat.  So we turned to alternative therapies for relief.  We walked so many paths - acupuncture, homeopathy, nutritional therapies, orthomolecular therapies, TCM, tapping, Reiki and more - but despite our efforts, we simply couldn't find lasting success.  But throughout it all, we returned time and again to the flower remedies of Dr. Edward Bach.  Nothing seemed to soothe us as well or as immediately than his wonderful remedies.  And yet, I knew in my heart that there was more.  As potent as his 38 remedies are, they didn't embody the full extent of my family's emotional and personal needs.  Thus began a decade-long journey of discovery that included dives into the world of esoteric flower essences, spagyric tincures, herbal remedies and more.  Finally, just shy of a decade after it began, our research led to the creation of our own line of remedies: Ascend Essences.  Born out of an intense desire to nurture the emotional needs of my family, Ascend has grown into a vibrant practice, helping clients all over the country.  We're so glad you've found us; we know we can help you too!
