Bach Flower Remedies

What are Bach Flower Remedies?

Bach Flower Remedies were discovered by Dr. Bach in the 1930’s

As a physician he was seeking a method of healing which would really address the reason for illness. After working as a Bacteriologist and Pathologist, he realised that bacteria were not the sole cause of disease, but that the emotional state of the patient would greatly influence each person’s prognosis.

He considered the Bach flower remedies as his life’s achievement and was convinced that they would become the medicine of the future.

Each person is an individual, with their own emotional outlook and stresses. Rather than give patients a diagnostic label, Dr Bach suggested that discovering how each patient feels personally should be the guide to choosing individual support when people are unwell.

"It is the patient to be treated and not the disease"

Dr Bach (during address given at Southport, February 1931)

Bach Flower Remedies Work on an Emotional Level

The Bach flower remedies work exclusively and directly on an emotional level, seeking to balance negative emotions and to empower us to support ourselves through difficult times in our lives and to help us to develop our positive strengths.

The remedies are perfectly safe for all the family to take and have been used throughout the world with great success by medics, complementary health practitioners and in families.

There are 38 individual flower remedies and one ready mixed combination which Dr Bach variously called the crisis mix and which is often known as Rescue Remedy.

This is used for emergency help when we feel traumatised, shocked or upset. The remedies can be mixed to match the emotional state of anyone needing support.

It's possible to mix almost 293,000,000 different bottles of remedy to suit each person’s individual emotional state.
