When it comes to sleep and stress, the two are very much interrelated, and even more so for anyone who has a stressful job and works shift work too!  So in today’s episode, we’re going to be talking all things sleep and stress, and how the healing power of flowers, a therapeutic remedy which has been used by traditional cultures for thousands of years, can help to calm the nervous system and encourage better quality sleep.

To explain how flower remedies actually work, we’ve brought on Dr Niikee Schoendorfer, who holds a Diploma in Nutrition and Traditional Chinese Herbalism, a Bachelor of Health Science Degree in Complementary Medicine, a Masters Degree in Nutritional Medicine, and a PhD in Nutritional Biochemistry.  In addition to her extensive academic record, Dr Niikee just so happens to travel all around Australia delivering workshops on some of the therapeutic benefits of using Australian Bush Flower Essences!
