Bach Flower Remedies were introduced in the 1930s by the English Physician and Homeopath Dr. Edward Bach and can be most easily defined as natural remedies for the emotions. Unlike conventional medicine, the flower remedies do not work to treat physical complaints, but instead work on balancing the emotions of the indivdual. They can be used to help the fight against illness by addressing the negative emotions which can impede our physical healing or alternatively they can be used at times of stress and anxiety to prevent physical illness. The link between mind and body has long been documented and balancing the mind and body is a vital step in maintaining our physical health.
Dr. Bach believed that disease was the result of imbalance between mind, body and soul and committed his life to developing a “Medicine of the future” which could be used by everyone to treat themselves. During the course of his short career, Dr. Bach developed 38 remedies in total. 37 of the 38 remedies are prepared from wild flowers and trees blossoms, the other remedy is made from water derived from a natural spring containing healing properties. Each remedy works to treat a specific emotion and mental state. Through his life work, Dr. Bach established that there are 38 principal human emotions, most of which every one of us will feel at some stage during our life. Problems can occur when our emotions become out of balance and cause negative attitudes, often as a result of a specific event or trigger. Dr. Bach divided the flower remedies into seven groups of fundamental emotions: fear, uncertainty, insufficient interest in present circumstances, loneliness, over–sensitivity to influences and ideas, despondency or despair, over–care for the welfare of others.
