Bach Flower Remedies

    Each of the 38 remedies discovered by Dr. Bach is directed at a particular characteristic or emotional state. To select the remedies you need, you need to think about the sort of person you are and the way you are feeling. Then you take the remedies you need.

    When we feel in control of ourselves we are at our best, We can cope with everything that life presents us. But sometimes we aren't quite in control of ourselves, we may feel out of sorts, as if something isn't right. And sometimes we need a little help to get back on track. In the 1920s and 30s a noted homeopath and bacteriologist named Dr Edward Bach discovered a way of providing that help a complete system of 38 flower remedies that can help us rediscover the positive side of ourselves and help us live emotionally healthy lives, back in control. These remedies can help us and our children.  For example:   Clematis for daydreaming. Larch the confidence remedy. Rescue Remedy for Stress.

 (Bach flower essence method, Bach flower essence system): Quasi-homeopathic system of ostensible diagnosis and treatment developed in the 1930s by British physician Edward Bach (1886-1936).


Bach put forth his philosophy in Heal Thyself: An Explanation of the Real Cause and Cure of Disease, first published in 1931. Therein he described five "fundamental truths," in sum:
 (1) Souls, invincible and immortal sparks of the Almighty, are the "real," "Higher" selves of humans.
(2) Humanity's purpose is to develop virtues and wipe out all intrapersonal wrongs. Souls know what circumstances conduce to the perfection of human nature.
(3) One's lifetime is a minuscule part of one's evolution.
(4) When one's "Soul" and personality are "in harmony," one is healthy and happy. The straying of the personality from the dictates of the "Soul" is the "root cause" of disease and unhappiness.
(5) The "Creator of all things" is "Love," and everything of which humans are conscious manifests the "Creator."  

Bach held that disease was essentially beneficial and that its design was to subject the personality to the "Divine will" of the "Soul." Supposedly, he "psychically" discovered the specific "healing" effects of 38 wildflowers. The life force ("soul quality" or "energy wavelength") of each of these flowers allegedly is transferable to water and thence to humans. Each of the so-called Bach flower remedies is a liquid that supposedly contains a "soul quality" with an affinity to a human "soul quality"; and each vegetable "soul quality" allegedly harmonizes its human counterpart with the "Soul." The bases of classical "diagnosis" are conversation and intuition. Administration of the "remedies" is usually oral but may be external.
