The Bach Flower Remedies are 38 homoeopathically prepared plant and flower based remedies, each one specially devised to treat a different emotion. They were discovered by Dr Edward Bach during the 1930's. Dr Bach was an eminent Harley Street consultant, bacteriologist and homoeopath who had become disillusioned with orthodox medicine and turned to homoeopathy as a way of helping his patients without them suffering the side effects so often experienced with drugs.

Dr Bach believed in the homoeopathic principle that a very small amount of a substance introduced into the body was all that was necessary to produce beneficial results. He was of the opinion that the plant world held the answer to restoring vitality so that the sufferers themselves would be able to overcome their worries and anxieties and so assist in their own emotional and then physical healing.

They are not used directly for physical complaints but for the sufferer's worry, because negative moods not only hinder recovery of health, they are generally accepted as primary causes of sickness and disease. They are very beneficial if the sufferer is experiencing fear or anxiety, depression or loneliness. They can help through times of change and uncertainty, shock or oversensitivity. The Rescue Remedy is a combination of 5 Bach Flower Remedies generally used for emergencies, offering comfort and reassurance to those suffering distressing experiences.

Bach Flower Remedies can be taken by people of all ages, there is no danger of an overdose or side effects, and should the wrong choice be made, no harm will ensue. They will not be influenced by, nor will they affect any form of medicine prescribed to a person. They are however preserved in a solution of grape alcohol and caution should be taken by those unable to tolerate even the smallest amount of alcohol.

At an initial consultation with a registered practitioner you will have time to discuss your problems and the workings of the remedies will be explained to you. A tailor-made remedy will be made up and instructions given on how they should be taken for maximum effect.

The key to the Remedies is Simplicity and a practitioner will try to help you to understand how you can, with a little bit of practice, learn which remedies to choose for yourself in the future, whenever you feel they may be of help to you

The Dr. Edward Bach Centre, Mount Vernon, Oxfordshire was where Dr Bach lived and worked and discovered his healing flowers in the surrounding fields and hedgerows. These same flower locations are still used in the preparation of the Bach Flower Remedies by the present custodians, who are dedicated to maintaining the method and use of the Remedies as intended by Dr Bach.
