"And now we come to the all-important problem, how can we help ourselves?"

Dr Edward Bach, 1931

Who Is Dr Edward Bach?


Dr Edward Bach originally trained in traditional medicine and was a renowned Bacteriologist. He was also trained in homoeopathy. However, he became disillusioned with mainstream medicine and knew that he needed to find a more natural approach to treating his patients, the focus is on the individual's emotional health rather than the symptoms which manifested physically. 


Dr Bach was passionate to get the message across that if the mind was in balance then the body would be also.

WHAT ARE THE 38 BACH FLOWER REMEDIES?


There are 38 Remedies dealing with 38 different negative states of mind.


Each remedy is made from familiar flowers and trees including Clematis, Beech and Impatiens.


The Remedies are organised into 7 groups of negative emotions that we, as humans, experience and some that animals experience:


· Fear
· Uncertainty & Indecision
· Loneliness
· Insufficient Interest in present circumstances
· Over-sensitivity to ideas & Influences
· Despondency & Despair
· Over-care for the welfare of others.

RESCUE REMEDY


You may already be familiar with rescue remedy.

  

It is a composite remedy consisting of 5 of the 38 Bach Remedies and is used in situations of 'crisis' for example after receiving bad news, accident or exam nerves.


However, the 38 Bach Flower Remedies available to you today are the result of Dr Bach's search over many years to find a 'simple system' which will help us on an emotional level.

Dr Bach was an advocate for treating the cause, not the disease, and dedicated his life to bringing relief and peace of mind to so many people.

Today vets, animal behaviourists and trainers are aware that animals have personalities and emotions too and, in the way we experience the negative effects of stress, so can they.


We have to be careful though not to place our human interpretation onto animal behaviours.


It is always essential that, with people and animals, medical/veterinary advice should be sort in the first instance if you have concerns.  If you have any questions at all please get in touch.
