What are the Bach Flower Remedies?
Discovered in the 1930s by Edward Bach, a highly regarded General Practitioner, Bacteriologist and Homeopath, the Bach Flower Remedies have been successfully used throughout the world to treat and help those with fears, worries, depression, hopelessness etc.
Dr Bach had said "the main reason for the failure of modern medical science is that it is dealing with results and not causes". He believed that one should take no notice of the disease but think only of the outlook on life of the one in distress. Nowadays, of course, it is extremely common to hear of stress-related physical illness. The mind is the most sensitive part of the body and shows the onset and the course of disease much more definitely than the body, and therefore the outlook of the mind is chosen to guide which remedy or remedies would be beneficial.
The Bach Flower Remedies are made 100% naturally from spring water which has been infused with wild flowers. There are 38 Flower Remedies, each one resonating a different emotion, state of mind and outlook. The remedies use the gentle power of nature to bring us back into balance.
“The action of these remedies is to raise our vibrations and open up our channels for the reception of our Spiritual Self; to flood our natures with the particular virtue we need, and wash out from us any fault which is causing harm. They are able, like beautiful music or any glorious uplifting thing which gives us inspiration, to raise our very natures, and bring us nearer to our souls, and by that very act bring us peace and relieve our sufferings. They cure, not by attacking the disease, but by flooding our bodies with the beautiful vibrations of our Higher Nature, in the presence of whom disease melts away as snow in the sunshine.” Dr. Edward Bach
Dr Bach's intention was for the use of the remedies to be straightforward for all to understand; simplicity was his key-word. He placed the 38 remedies into 7 emotional groups. Within each group there are qualities that relate to each remedy.
