Dr Edward Bach
Dr E Bach was a greatly respected physician, surgeon and bacteriologist who produced original works with immunology and vaccines. He moved from orthodox medicine as his love of nature intuitively guided him to discover a more natural healing system to treat a person rather than the disease, improving someones emotional and spiritual health.
Dr Bach was aware that a person's personality and attitude has a great influence on their wellbeing and he had strong beliefs that following your own true vocation is essential to spiritual and physical health.
He became dissatisfied with conventional medicines as he felt they were focused on treating the symptoms and encouraged by the similar views shared by Samuel Hahnemann, the father of homeopathy he practised at the Royal London Homeopathy Hospital where he developed the Seven Bach Nosodes however, he disliked that they were based on bacteria and was keen to find a gentler, more natural way of healing and looked to plants and nature for answers.
His book Heal Thyself expresses his message that physical disease is the result of being at odds with one's spiritual purpose and his philosophy of simplicity is the basis of these remedies to help anyone who needs a way to ease distress and combating illness.
The purpose of these remedies are to support someone along life's journey, providing a self healing path when emotional factors such as depression, anxiety and trauma have negative impacts, adversely affecting our health.
Situations, shocking events, conditions and circumstances whether expected or surprising to those experiencing them effect us all differently, the Bach Flower Remedies help us to cope and overcome challenges encountered along life's path, bringing gentle and importantly natural emotional healing.
Emotions since the dawn of time have not changed, for example an early person felt emotions such as fear and worry however, the triggers and situations that effect our emotions have changed. Emotions have not changed since this complete healing system was discovered, Bach Remedies provide a pure way to overcome any emotional discord.
There are 38 remedies in the complete Bach Healing system with infinite combination possibilities which is another reason they are so wonderfully effective, they overcome the individual's specific negative and unwanted feelings, restoring improved states of mind.
Although the Bach Remedies do not treat physical illness, moods such as apprehension, worry or anxiousness will only hinder one's recovery and if endured for long periods of time can actually cause or worsen sickness and disease.
These remedies provide a simple way to cope and replace unwanted emotions naturally, safely and at a pace that is ideal for the individual.
These remedies cure, not by attacking disease, but by flooding our bodies with the beautiful vibrations of our Higher Nature, in the presence of which disease melts as snow in the sunshine.
