I use Bach flower remedies a lot in my practice alongside prescription herbal medicine and hypnotherapy, coaching and NLP. Dr Edward Bach (1886 – 1936) trained as a medical doctor. He turned to nature for remedies that would treat the whole person rather than the condition, illness or its symptoms. He identified that while conventional medicine might be able to control and relieve some symptoms, recovery was slow or delayed unless the patient’s emotional state was addressed. He developed Bach Flower essences that help unlock particular emotional states. The remedies are made from the essence of flowers, and work on a deep emotional level. Emotional healing can be tough. Trauma and negative feelings do undermine healing and achievement. As Bach himself said,
“The mind being the most delicate and sensitive part of the body, shows the onset and the course of disease much more definitely than the body, so that the outlook of mind is chosen as the guide as to which remedy or remedies are necessary. Edward Bach, The Twelve Healers and other Remedies (1933).”
I combine the use of Bach Flower remedies with Herbal Medicine and my other therapies whenever they are indicated.
