Bach Flower Remedies
Most people are now familiar with Bach’s Rescue Remedy, great for shock and anxiety attacks. Dr Bach’s other flower remedies have much more to offer.
After training first as a medical doctor, then as a homeopath, Dr Edward Bach developed his Flower Remedies in the 1930’s as a simpler alternative to the complexities of homeopathy. He believed that all disease stemmed from emotional imbalance and discovered that certain flowers and other plants could correct these imbalances. He found that particular flowers and plants could have a direct effect on his own state of mind and after careful research developed remedies that can help with fear, depression, anxiety, indecision, guilt and exhaustion, among others.
His system of 38 remedies can be combined in various ways to produce a specific blend for each individual. This is then made up into a treatment bottle after a full consultation that lasts around an hour. The remedy can then be taken as required, at least four times a day, more often if required.
This can be particularly useful when going through times of emotional trauma and change, such as divorce, bereavement, a new baby, moving house, changing schools, exam nerves, etc. Bach flower remedies work well alongside homeopathy and all other complementary and conventional treatments.
One of the advantages of Dr Bach’s system is that it is easy to learn and thus be able to prescribe for yourself, friends and family.
