"There is no true healing unless there is a change in outlook, peace of mind and
inner happiness."

Dr Edward Bach

The 38 remedies in the Bach remedy system were discovered by Dr Edward Bach, whose work as a  bacteriologist, physician and pathologist led him to aspire to a more holistic approach to helping patients.


In 1917, he suffered a severe haemorrhage while tending injured soldiers returned from France. A tumour was removed and he was given three months to live. But as the months went by, he gained strength and became convinced that it was his sense of a life purpose that saved him.


His search for a gentler series of remedies than the vaccines he had been developing led him to research the healing properties of plants and flowers. His intuition guided him to find the right plants for specific imbalances.


He found that when he treated the personalities and feelings of his patients, their unhappiness and physical distress would be alleviated naturally - the healing potential in their bodies was unblocked and allowed to work once more.


Dr Bach died in 1936, outliving his earlier prognosis by 20 years. He left behind several lifetime's experience and effort, and a system of medicine that is now used all over the world.


Quotes by Dr Edward Bach. Information from www.bachcentre.com.

"Healing with the clean, pure, beautiful agents of nature is surely the one method of all which appeals to most of us."



"Treat the mood of the patient and the disease
will disappear."


The Bach system is based on the idea that emotional upsets and some personality tendencies have a negative impact on our health and wellbeing.


By matching remedies to our emotional state or problems, we can face our own specific fears and restore a healthy emotional life  - thereby allowing our bodies to find their own natural state of health.


There are 38 remedies in the Bach remedy system, each associated with a basic human emotion. Flower remedies are prepared by infusing flower heads and other plant parts in spring water. The solution is then preserved in brandy and given in liquid form.


A Bach Flower practitioner can help you find the  remedy or mixture of remedies most helpful for you. But the Bach system is so simple and accessible that you can also self diagnose and choose your own remedies if you wish.
