Bach Flower Essences
It is probably not surprising to you to know that flowers have the power to heal, as I’m sure you have received flowers at some point in your life and immediately you smiled big and felt overwhelmed with love.
Flowers not only look beautiful, but their aroma can literally bring healing to a heavy heart. This is exactly why some men and women have spent their lives researching the healing characteristics of flowers and herbs.
Take Dr. Bach for example. Dr. Bach was a doctor back in the 1930’s who was concerned that the industrialization of the world would have a negative effect on the planet and his spirit. He understood that the high tech world would essentially rape the planet of many beautiful flowers and greenery and this would have a direct effect on people’s souls. Just think of life without the beauty of nature; it would certainly be detrimental in various ways.
After years of performing traditional medication, Dr. Bach turned to alternative therapies for healing because he believed there was a direct correlation between illness and the mind. He viewed sickness as an external expression of negative emotional states. He was so sure that he could find plant remedies for healing so he left his medical practice and went to Wales to discover herbal remedies. He was 43 years old when he decided to make this change.
What Dr. Bach would do is suffer a certain emotional state and then find an herbal remedy to cure himself. He relied on his own intuition and natural ability to heal. He found that when he treated the root causes of physical and mental sickness, his patients would get well.
Dr. Bach’s healing flower essences are used worldwide today to alleviate men and women’s mental and physical distress. He created 38 flower remedies to treat all sorts of ailments and conditions. The remedies promote wholeness and freedom.
