"There is no true healing unless there is a change in outlook, peace of mind and
Dr Edward Bach
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.
"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
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.
