Bach Flower /baCH·flou·(ə)r/ – Noun: A self-help collection of tinctures
The original Bach Flower Remedies comprise a safe and natural method of wellness self-support that was originated by the British physician and homeopath Dr. Edward Bach (September 24, 1886 – November 27, 1936). Dr. Bach, who was born in the village of Moseley, studied medicine at the University College Hospital, London where he was House Surgeon. He also maintained a general practice on Harley Street. Dr. Bach studied bacteriology and immunology, and earned a Diploma in Public Health from Cambridge.
After observing the recovery of soldiers in wartime, he became convinced of a key connection between their mental state and physical recovery. It’s common sense: negative emotions aren’t good for your health. Because he reasoned that emotional healing should have a ripple effect on the rest of your life, he came up with 38 remedies associated with basic human emotions. Dr. Bach considered his Original Flower Remedies to be the culmination of his life’s work.
Dr. Bach Original Flower Remedies are a self-help collection of tinctures based on the premise that emotional support is a simple and good thing and that you can know your own mind and select remedies that will help you, all by yourself. By mitigating negative emotions such as fear, worry, hatred, and indecision which interfere with the equilibrium of the being as a whole, one can take an important step towards wellness. These remedies are not intended to replace your other avenues of support, but should be considered an adjunct help.
