Bach Flower Remedies
Developed by British physician Dr. Edward Bach, Bach flower remedies (also known as Bach flower essences) are considered a gentle, non-toxic, and subtle method of healing with no known side effects to the active ingredients. The remedies are based on the concept that our natural state is to be healthy, and that situations in everyday life cause emotional imbalance. These imbalances may ultimately lead to physical illness. By using either one of a combination of 38 flower essences, the internal healing mechanism of the body is stimulated and the emotional imbalance is then corrected.
The concept behind the healing ability of each flower remedy is based on principles very similar to that of Homeopathy.
Dr. Edward Bach
Remedies are chosen based on their association with specific emotional characteristics. For example, the flower remedy “scleranthus” represents the characteristics of someone who vacillates and who is indecisive, nervous, impulsive, restless, erratic, easily distracted, and experiences wide mood fluctuations.
Although remedies are often used to treat an imbalance, they can also be used as a preventative measure by using them in our everyday lives. In this case, remedies are chosen depending on fear-based emotions we experience from our personality characteristics.
Natural, Safe, & Non-Toxic
Bach flower remedies can be used safely on babies, pregnant women, the elderly, on animals, and even on plants. The preparation methods leave no trace of the original plant, therefore allergies to the plants used in the remedies should not pose any danger.
The remedies are often used in conjunction with conventional medicine, and Bach recognized that traditional and alternative medicines are each valid in their own ways. He also recommended the remedies be used in conjunction with a nutritional diet, exercise, fresh air, meditation, and complimentary medicines.
