Bach Flower Remedy
Dr Edward Bach believed that the attitude of mind played a vital role in maintaining health and recovering from illness. He developed 38 flower remedies (now called Bach Flower Remedies) that can support a persons fight against illnesses by addressing anxiety, trauma, stress and other emotional factors that are thought to impede physical healing. The flower remedies do not suppress negative emotions but transform them into positive ones, stimulating one’s own potential for self-healing or prevention of illness especially during times of difficulty, stress and fatigue.
