What is a bach flower remedy?
Bach flower remedy is a simple and efficient remedy that was created in the 30’s by Dr Edward Bach. Bach flower remedies are plants and flowers preparations or flower essences that aim at treating emotional problems. Bach flower remedies help maintaining an harmonic balance with our own self and with others.
The origins of the bach flower remedies
Dr Edward Bach had noticed quickly the limitations of regular medicine and wanted to create an holistic approach to cure human beings. He had understood that negative energies and emotional tensions are bad for the body as they use our vital energy that leads to tiredness, pain and a weaker immune system. He was convinced that diseases are the results of internal conflicts and decided to create a natural healing method to get rid of those emotional conflicts by using the healing energy of certain plants to interact with our own healing energies as both are similar. Throughout his years of research, he discovered that certain plants had the capacity to transform negative energies into positive energies. The Bach flower remedies do not heal physical conditions but by recreating an internal harmonic emotional balance, all the beneficial conditions are gathered to leave the body free of auto-healing itself.
