Everything about Bach Flower Remedies
Bach flower remedies are an alternative method of treatment, created by the English homeopath Edward Bach in the early 20th century. As a form of therapy, Bach remedies are an energy therapy according to which by healing a person on a spiritual and emotional level, you can also cure him on a physical level.
This refers to changes in habits or way of thinking that, according to the therapeutic approach, will change with each treatment option.
Flower remedies are simple extracts of different herbs in water under sunlight, where they are activated energetically, and then dissolved in alcohol (to be exact brandy) in equal parts. This is the basic extract (mother tincture).
To date, Bach flower remedies have not been shown in studies to have truly healing properties. Although it seems to be a placebo, the theory is that when there is psychological and emotional balance, there is also physical strength.
There are many flower remedies, each for a different emotional or psychological state. While the flower remedies system is relatively simple. Which we will mention below.
Consumption is also easy, as there is actually no overdose or side effects but it is good if you decide to use Bach flower remedies, to follow the rule.
An easy way to consume is to add to 1 glass of water 2 to 4 drops of flower remedies of your choice, and take sips from the glass as many times a day as you feel the need, but not less than 4 times a day. Prefer to have the glass in the fridge or choose a good glass bottle.
Another easy method is to use it directly in the language. You can drop 4 drops of the flower essences of your choice directly under the tongue, 4 times a day. While you can combine up to 7 different flower essences.
The philosophy behind Bach remedies is interesting as Bach believed that every disease was the result of a person’s soul colliding with his actions. The result of this conflict is negative emotions and blocking the flow of energy. He started the creation of flower essences, based on the energy emitted by plants, purely intuitively.
