Dr Eward Bach
Dr Edward Bach really cared for the wellbeing of others. He wanted to understand why some people got ill and not others; finding the root cause of illness. He went from a doctor to surgeon to bacteriologist to homeopath and finally created the Bach Flower Remedies system. He didn’t like the intrusion of surgery, or injecting vaccines, homeopathy was closer aligned with his thinking: Treat the person and not the disease. He observed that when people are exposed to the same possibility of getting ill, only some people got ill. He concluded that a person’s thoughts, outlook on life and emotional triggers played a huge role in their wellbeing. He created the Bach Flower Remedy system to counteract negative emotions by bringing in the positive virtue.
Dr Bach listed 38 remedies to help overcome negative emotions using up to 7 remedies in a personal Bach Remedy, over 200 million different combinations can be made to reflect a person’s current state of mind. Restoring balance in the mind, body and soul, you are able to improve a person’s wellbeing.
How to use Bach Flower Remedies
You take 4 drops 4 times a day, from your personal Bach Remedy bottle. First thing in the morning and last thing at night. Take the drops orally or in a little water. You can take an additional dosage (4 drops) during the day, when you are in need of support.
Alternative option: you can take your first dose in the morning, then place 8 drops in a bottle of water to sip throughout the day and take the last dose just before bed.
A personal Bach Remedy bottle should last around 3 weeks.
