Dr. Bach was a successful doctor in Harley Street, London. His dissatisfaction with the way doctors focused on the disease rather than the person who was suffering, inspired him to abandon his practice and dedicate his life to researching nature to develop a new system of medicine – one that would be purer and less reliant on the symptoms of a disease.
Dr. Bach believed that attitude and mental state play a vital role in maintaining health and recovering from illnesses. Over the following years he researched and identified 38 negative states of mind and a corresponding flower or plant remedy as a positive resolution for each one.
Next step was to make his flower remedies available to everyone. So in the 1930s, Dr. Bach enlisted the help of the Nelsons Homeopathic Pharmacy in Duke St, London to make and sell his Mother Tinctures. In 1990, this relationship was formalized and since then Nelsons (the Nelsons Homeopathic Pharmacy’s parent company) has been responsible for bottling and distributing RESCUE Remedy. We are the only ones entrusted with his signature- always look for this as a sign of authenticity & quality.
Dr Bach designed his system to be simple. It may seem daunting at first, but anybody can learn how to use it. The idea is that you will mix together the remedies you need so that the mix of remedies matches your current emotional situation. Like Dr. Bach, we believe that healing on an emotional level has knock-on effects on other levels: a healthy emotional life and a balanced personality will allow your body to find its own natural state of health.
Suppose you are suffering from asthma. There is no Bach remedy for asthma, since this is a physical complaint. So the first step is to forget about the physical problem. Instead of concentrating on the asthma, think about how you feel emotionally, and about the sort of person you are.
Similarly, when it comes to selecting Bach remedies you should ignore any physical symptoms. They are not relevant to which Bach remedies you need.
The remedies work on a emotional level. If you need help with a physical problem you should consult a qualified medical advisor in addition to taking Bach remedies.
