These remedies bring us nearer to our souls and by that very act bring us peace and relieve our sufferings–Dr. Edward Bach.
When her doctor told beauty consultant P. Godrej that she must undergo an operation to raise her prolapsed bladder, she stonewalled the issue. Terrified of death, she refused to discuss the matter, let alone agree to it. “Three days after taking Bach Flower Remedies [Impatiens for her irritability and Star of Bethlehem for her trauma], she was smiling”, says her daughter, Zarina. “Two weeks later, she sailed through the operation, chiming she was superfine right through!”.
Bach Flower therapy is a unique medicine system that can change very subtle emotional and psychological states of being. Terror, depression, anxiety, irritability, intolerance, lack of confidence, hatred or selfishness… two drops thrice a day of the right remedy can uproot such deep–seated personality traits. And, in the process, heal the body.
Although the system was founded in the 1930s by Dr. Edward Bach, an English bacteriologist and homeopathic physician, it remained an obscure tributary of homeopathy till the recent rekindling of interest in it. Its popularity is growing the world over, with annual conferences and the publication of books to keep pace with the burgeoning number of new remedies.
Bach flower is perhaps one of the most spiritual therapies, for it stems from Dr. Bach’s belief in the soul, a spark of the divine, guiding us towards our purpose in life. Violating the soul’s dictates or harming others distorts our inherently noble virtues such as courage, love, mental peace, humility, strength and understanding into negative qualities such as possessiveness, fear, indecision, depression, impatience, cruelty and hate. This process generates disease, which, therefore, originates in our spiritual state. Its cure, too, must be found in that realm.
