- Bach Flower Remedies come from flowers taken from trees and plants, which after being put in clear spring water they are exposed to sunlight; hence they are considered an Energy Medicine. The result of this procedure is that the final composition does not contain chemical substances, but instead it carries the energy imprint of the initial flower that was used.
Flower Remedies were discovered and brought to heal people by Dr. Edward Bach (1886- 1936). In the book “Heal Thyself” he suggests that the main cause of any disease is the conflict of soul and personality (mind) and defines the condition of perfect health as the harmonious coexistence of mind, body and soul.
As a result, the main reason of an ailment we will never be truly healed, unless the main factors are removed. Dr. Bach’s Flower Remedies offer the opportunity to interfere in a supporting and loving way with the negative points of our mentality and trying to turn them into positive ones.
Such negative points are fears, insecurities, loneliness, despair, and uncertainty, over-sensitivity to influences and ideas and even caring too much for others.
In order to be more specific, we shall borrow some more details from Dr. Bach’s book. In chapter 3 he argues that the primary ailments of a person are their faults, such as pride, cruelty, hatred, egotism, ignorance, instability and greed.
These are the things that stand between the Unities that are the true diseases. For example, pride, which is arrogance and inflexibility of the mind, cause diseases that make the body stiff and hard, while egotism causes neuroses, depression etc. that can take the joy of life away.
