Followers of the prominent English physician Dr. Edward Bach are sure that the Bach flower essences are the gift of the upper crust to save the mankind. The scientists are not so optimistic but they claim that Bach flowers appear to be useful to cure people. These remedies are though to refer to homeopathic concept, but they are not the same to other homeopathic remedies.
Dr. Bach believed that they influenced the inner energy of the human and restored the emotional balance. Although the flower essences are the part of herbal supplementary medicine, those who take the remedies say that there are no flower parts and even herbal taste or smell.
The Bach essences look like the spring water but they are not just the water itself. They store the energy of the plants and sunlight used to prepare them. This energy contains the definite energetic pattern. The patterns influence the corresponding emotions of the patient and eliminate the negative emotional states. Dr. Bach performed lots of studies to choose the right plants for his remedies.
Bach flower remedies are safe and natural and therefore they can be used with any other treatment and prescriptions. They won’t produce any side effects. The remedies are good for using with other homeopathic medicines. Together they are a good healing system. The homeopathic remedies are safe and cure both body and mind. This property makes them close to the Bach essences and that’s why they work well together. In fact, this healing system refers to the concept of holistic health.
Holistic health is the concept Dr. Bach used to treat his patients. It means that the treatment should be effective both for the physical disease and for emotional and mental imbalance. The human has the body, the mind and the soul. These three components are called the Whole. Holistic healing system is directed to cure the Whole if the person is ill. The remedies of holistic healing system are very close to homeopathic ones as they are used to cure not only the physical problem. However, not all homeopaths believe in the vital forces and inner energy.
Some of them strive to create the medicines which deal with the body and the emotions. In any case all of them claim that the disease strikes not only the body. The science reached high levels and lots of diseases are considered ‘psychosomatic’, i.e. those which have negative impact both on the mind and on the body. For the patients it means that they won’t actually recover until their mind accepts the idea of the recovery, although most people think that this word means that the thoughts and emotions are the reason of the disease. Bach flower remedies are prepared to overcome both physical and mental problems.
Even if you don’t believe that it’s possible, you still can try. Maybe it will be helpful for you too.
