Can the essence of wild-grown flowers heal the mind, body and spirit? According to Dr. Edward Bach, they can help us deal with the negative emotions which are believed to be the cause of disease. Dr. Bach abandoned orthodox medicine to become a pioneer in the field of flower remedies. Jeremy Harwood presents the theory and practice of the 38 Bach flower remedies with a jargon-free approach. He takes each remedy and briefly describes the use to give emotional and physical relief. Each plant is displayed in color and add so much to the understanding of how plants help us to heal. 'It is not the disease that is of importance, it is the patient, the way in which he or she is affected, which is our true guide to healing.' Dr. Edward Bach Flower remedies promote a positive outlook on life. Fear, uncertainty, lack of interest, loneliness, over-sensitivity, despair and anxiety have a negative affect. A remedy for 'fear' is called Mimulus. This can help people who are afraid of social contact and will help people confront their worries and anxieties. Mimulus is described in detail. To take any of the remedies, it is recommended that two drops of the tincture is to be used in a glass of water. You can then sip the water four times a day. This makes taking all the remedies very easy and you could make up a bottle in the morning and even take your remedy to work. There are no pills to swallow, which will give everyone a reason to be happy on its own. I highly recommend this easy-to-use reference guide because it is extremely user friendly. This is a small enough book, that you can keep it in your first-aid kit or with your essential oils and other herbal remedies. There is a list of addresses and web sites in the back of the book along with a lovely index, which will help you to quickly locate a problem and solve it. A complete kit of the 38 remedies costs four hundred dollars or you can start to collect them as needed. Each bottle costs around nine dollars if you purchase them individually. A beautiful maple chest can also be purchased to keep the remedies organized. You might want to try the original Rescue Remedy which is the one product that you can take to cure all kinds of emotional stress.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
