What is Bach Flower Remedies and Where do they come from?
"When we feel fulfilled, happy and positive, we tend to enjoy better health. We get more out of life and we can give more to our friends and family."
"But things happen. Sometimes we need a little help to stay in balance and move forward. That's when Bach Original Flower Remedies can help."
The Bach Original Flower Remedies were developed by Dr Edward Bach a Harley Street doctor and well known Physician, Bacteriologist, Homeopath and Researcher. He believed that attitude of mind plays a vital role in maintaining health and recovering from illness. Each remedy aids a specific emotion. You can take them individually or mix them together to match the way you feel.
He identified 38 basic negative states of mind and created a plant or flower based remedy for each one. Recent research into the links between emotions and the immune system supports the view that emotional and physical health are linked. More and more medical experts now agree that a healthy mind really does ensure a healthy body. Bach Original Flower Remedies can help you take control of the way you feel and get more out of life.
Using Bach Flower Remedies
"Personally I am quite easily disillusioned and pessimistic in nature, but I
have found that when I take Gorse, my mood improves and I become
much more positive."
Teresa Munro, London
"I find that Vervain is useful to calm my son, who can be over enthusiastic and Larch helps to improve my daughters confidence. I think Rescue Remedy is an essential for all parents, I have even used it on the rabbit!."
Diane Dashfield, 35, Essex
"I have gone through quite a few periods of change in my life, such as surgery, moving home and separation from my family. During times like these I have used Walnut for difficulty adjusting to change. Mimulus for known fear and Star of Bethlehem for shock and sorrow."
Barbara Tremain, 38, Cornwall
Dr Bach created an emergency combination containing five flower remedies - Impatiens, Star of Bethlehem, Cherry Plum, Rock Rose and Clematis. Rescue Remedy combines these five Bach Original Flower Remedies and can be used to help you cope with immediate everyday situations such as going to the dentist, interviews, making a complaint or wedding day nerves. It can also help in times of crisis or trauma such as bereavement, a relationship breakdown or redundancy.
Rescue Cream is a general skin salve to sooth and restore. Containing a blend of five flower remedies, it lets you apply cream externally and moisturises rough, dry skin to restore it to its natural good condition.

Choosing the right Bach Flower Remedies for you
Recognising exactly how you feel is the key to choosing the most appropriate Bach Flower Remedy. Try to pinpoint how you are feeling at the moment. Then match the exact mood you're in with the appropriate remedy.
For example: if moving house is making you feel frustrated and impatient, try Impatiens. And if you are finding it hard to adapt to your new neighbourhood, try Walnut. Sometimes we find it difficult to be honest with ourselves. Few of us want to be seen as jealous or over-protective, but once we have admitted how we feel, we are halfway towards balancing that emotion.
So, if you have trouble working out your feelings, why not ask someone who knows you well to help? Deborah @ New Life Spa Wellness Center will be happy to help you simplify the process of choosing which remedy's are best for you.
