Bach Flower Remedies
Bach Flower Therapy is a form of energy medicine intended to help primarily for emotional and spiritual conditions including but not not limited to daily stress, mood concerns, anxiety, insomnia, frustration and anger.
A Bach Flower "Remedy" consists of water that has been patterned with the energetic vibrations of one or more of 38 different flowers.
Each remedy is used alone or in conjunction with other remedies, and each flower imparts specific qualities to the remedy. Bach flower remedies are usually taken orally.
Bach Flower Therapy is named after Dr. Edward Bach, whose research led to its development in England in the 1930's. Like other energetic healing modalities, this treatment seeks to create balance in areas of energetic disruption. Its purpose is to restore emotional harmony.
Unlike psychotropic medications (i.e. medicines that treat depression, anxiety or psychosis), Bach Flowers treat specific shades of emotion. For example, they address sadness, despair, hopelessness, irritability, rage, resentment, panic, worry, concern about family members, uncertainty, self-doubt, shyness, lethargy, overwhelm, pain without physical cause, impulsivity, agitation, procrastination, daydreaming, vague anxieties, specific phobias and any other disturbing emotion.
There are important differences between Bach Flower Therapy and traditional medical therapy. Bach Flowers do not consist any chemicals or medicinal properties. Therefore they can be taken along with any food, herb, health product or medicine without causing any interaction. In this way, they are most similar to water. Bach Flowers treat the unhealthy emotional tendency, meaning that when the disturbing emotion is no longer active, Flower Treatment is stopped. One does not continue treatment in such a case, because the Flower does not act preventative like vitamins or medicine. Rather, it operates more like a process that undoes a knot (in the energetic flow). Once the knot is undone, there is no further need to keep undoing it! Bach Flowers can be taken safely by infants, pregnant or nursing women, the elderly, and even those who have flower allergies.
