the bach flower remedies
what are bach flower remedies?
The Bach flower remedies are a system of healing using 38 different remedies derived from natural plants and flowers each one designed to address a different human emotional state. The system of healing is simple and natural yet very powerful, discovered by their founder Dr Edward Bach in the 1920s and 1930s.
what can they help with?
I have seen profound results with the remedies in both adults, children, animals and plants. The remedies are particularly helpful in addressing the following emotional states:
breaking old patterns of behaviour
grief, loss or bereavement
times of illness, and transition through change
support through major life changes
how do you choose which remedies I need?
When you come for a Bach Flower consultation I will explore with you how you are currently feeling, and discuss your personality type in relation to the various 38 remedies. During the session which takes c. 45 minutes -1 hour, together we will select the most effective remedies for you. I will explain how the remedies are made and how they work and at the end of the session I will make up the treatment bottle and show you how to take them. We will also set benchmark scores for each emotion you are experiencing before and during treatment so that you can clearly map the positive changes you experience as a result of taking the remedies.
The Bach Flower Remedies are so natural they have no contraindications with conventional or other medicines and can be taken safely alongside other treatments. Over time, once you've experienced the simplicity and effectiveness of the remedies, I can support you in using this natural and accessible system to self-prescribe and facilitate your own healing.
who was Dr. Bach?
Dr Bach was a successful physician, bacteriologist and pathologist who had trained in medicine in Birmingham and London. He worked for many years to great success on developing an understanding of the impact of gut bacteria on health and disease. It was during his time working at the London Homeopathic hospital where he developed the 7 Bach Nosodes (which are still in use today), that Dr Bach became more focused on treating the person rather than the disease realising that it was the individual nature of each person that correlated to how quickly the person recovered from an illness. He found that when he treated the personalities and feelings of his patients their unhappiness and physical distress would be alleviated naturally as the healing potential in their bodies was unblocked and allowed to work once more. He relied more and more on his intuition to develop this healing method and to find the plants that related to each emotion, which he did one by one, year after year, until his work was complete in 1936.
