What Are The Bach Flower Remedies?
Bach Flower Remedies or essences were developed in the 1930’s by the renowned physician, medical researcher and bacteriologist Dr Edward Bach. He felt that traditional medicine only treated the disease and not the cause. In his opinion this was a grave mistake and he devoted much of his life to researching into the negative states of mind, which he believed were the root cause of illness.
Dr. Bach identified 38 basic negative states of mind and he homeopathically created a plant, flower or tree based essence for each one of them. In his day, his unorthodox way of working was not acceptable to traditional medicine and he was almost struck off the medical register. He was so determined to have his remedes accessible to all no matter what, that he was prepared to risk all. If he were still alive today (he died in 1936) he would be overjoyed to see that his remedies are available over the counter almost anywhere in the world and that the ‘Rescue Remedy’ has become a household name.
Recent research into the links between emotions and the immune system supports the view that emotional and physical health are linked. More and more medical experts now agree that a healthy mind really does ensure a healthy body. This new approach is taking us away from strong pharmaceutical drugs, toward more natural, non-habit forming preparations which gently assist the body in mobilizing its own internal healing capabilities. Using the Bach Flower Essences can help you take control of the way you feel and get more out of your life.
I originally trained at the Dr Edward Bach centre in Wallingford, Oxford, GB in 2000. Since qualifying, I’m listed on their international register of paractitioners. I have many years of experience with the flower remedies and have used them to help people from all walks of life and with many different emotional difficulties. My clients have been as far away as Canada and Japan!
Bach flower therapy can help with difficulties such as anxiety, fear, resentment and jealousy. Even lack of confidence and self-esteem can become complicated physical disorders once they have manifested. The flower essences are a subtle yet powerful way of working with blocked emotions.
The Flower Remedies do not replace good medical diagnosis and treatment. It is suggested that you seek the advice of a trained health care practitioner wherever necessary. Bach Flower Essences can be used as a complementary approach in conjunction with traditional medical treatments.< >
Bach Flower Essence consultations can be carried out by post and by telephone.
