Bach Flower Remedies, invented by Dr. Bach (1886-1936), is a naturopathic healing system that focuses on treating the whole person rather than the illness. In his medical research, Dr. Bach concluded that ill health originates in a person’s emotional and mental state rather than the physical body. Therefore, since the mind plays such a huge role in illness, it also should be central to healing.
The Bach Flower Remedies support us in accepting and working with those traits and emotions that cause us problems. Rather than denying them, we should work with the positive side of the feelings that cause us problems. For example, if we are afraid, we should focus on increasing our courage; if we are stressed, we should improve our ability to relax. The result of restoring harmony in our inner selves is the restoration of our bodies, and consequently, body and mind will be in tune.
Bach flower remedies use flowers from non-poisonous plants, shrubs, and trees.
The remedies are safe, non-toxic, non-addictive, and have no side effects, hence can, infants, children, adults, and the elderly can all benefit from Bach Flower Remedies. In addition, Bach Flower Remedies can be used with any other conventional medical or holistic treatment. They do not cause dramatic healing crises but slowly unpeel the emotional layers one at a time.
Today flower remedies are gaining worldwide professional recognition for their significant contribution to the fields of healthcare and healing.
