The Bach Flower Remedys

“DISEASE IS solely & purely corrective: it is neither vindictive nor cruel; but it is the means adopted by our Souls to point out to us our faults; to prevent our making greater errors; to hinder us from doing more harm; & to bring us back to that path of truth & light from which we should never have strayed”.  
  ......Edward Bach

DR. EDWARD BACH (1886 – 1936) was a British Physician, well-known pathologist, immunologist & bacteriologist.  He was a pioneer in conventional medicine. His discovery & applications of innovative bacterial vaccines are still being used today in modern Homeopathic Medicine.  Despite his medical successes, Dr. Edward Bach felt very deeply that there was something more that needed to be explored & understood in terms of human health & healing.  Through his own personal exploration, combined with his medical training & education, he came to believe that human dis-ease was in actuality, the end result of a disharmony between the Mind/Outer Personality & the Soul/Inner Spirit.  

HE WAS A TRUE PIONEER.   He was open to looking beneath the physical symptoms that the body presented.  He believed that the wounds & imbalances of the heart, the mind & spirit are the true cause of all physical imbalance & disease.  He felt that our bodily ills actually symptoms of our emotional, mental & spiritual imbalances & that the true cause of our physical imbalances are actually our thoughts, our belief systems, our emotions, our fears, worries, anxieties & etc….

IN THE EARLY 1930’s, Dr. Edward Bach discovered a comprehensive, natural healing system prepared from wild plants, trees & flowers.  This Healing System is an extremely effective, safe & gentle form of alternative healing.  What is wonderful about the Bach Flower Remedies is that they cannot cause any harm…. They can only create healing. 

THE BACH FLOWER Remedies contain the subtle energetic essences of flowers, plants & trees.  These remedies help to rebalance our mental, emotional & spiritual bodies; which in turn promotes health & vitality in the physical body. 

BY USING the Bach Flower Remedies to promote health, healing & well-being in our lives, we are offered a profound opportunity to heal on a very deep level, to grow & to expand in our lives.  The Remedies are able to provide us with the healing support that we need to transition from the all to often Human States of Disease, Disharmony, General Unhappiness & Spiritual Disconnection, towards the Higher Human States of Emotional Well-Being, Physical Health & Vitality, Mental Balance & Spiritual Connection & Peacefulness.

A PERSON that ‘wasn’t quite himself anymore’ is now restored to be ‘fully himself’.”
