Dr. Edward Bach, a British Physician and a Harley Street Practitioner was a firm believer of Holistic form of emotional healing . He developed these Bach Flower Remedies in 1930s . BFR are a popular form of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM ). BFRs are believed to assist the body in healing itself by providing “ a positive emotional state that is conducive to the restoration of a healthy equilibrium and thus strengthening the immune system . “Acc. to Dr. Bach , the BFR work thro’ the life force energy or vibration that is transmitted from the flowers to the tincture. This vibration interacts on a subtle energy level with the individual to rebalance the conscious and unconscious and dissolve old patterns of behaviour. A physical healing is enabled by alleviating negative emotions and relieving the underlying emotional and psychological problems of the patient.
The effect of taking the remedies is, not to suppress the negative attitudes but to transform these into positive ones, stimulating one’s own potential for self healing and hence fighting disease and stress. People do not have to be physically ill to benefit from the remedies.
Many of us go through difficult times during which negativity creeps in – which may result in different physical ailments. At these times the remedies are invaluable in restoring the balance before physical symptoms of a disease appear. The 38 BFR which encompass the 38 negative states of mind, from which mankind can suffer – constitute a complete system of healing.
These BFR can be taken safely with any other system of medicine, for these compliment the other systems. These BFR can be taken by people of all ages, from new born babies to elderly persons.
