|The Bach Flower Remedies|
by Edward Bach, M.D.
Our May 2013 selection.
Dr. Edward Bach believed the heart of healing must be focused on the ills of the emotions not physical distress. To him, the bodily ills are merely symptoms of far more serious problems – our fears, anxieties, apathy, depression, and hostility. In The Bach Flower Remedies, he sets forth his insights into health and illness plus a remarkable system for treating the “ills of heart and spirit” with flower remedies.
The Bach Flower Remedies is actually three books in one, In the first section, "Heal Thyself," Dr. Bach discusses his spiritual perspective on the nature of illness and the ultimate source of effective cures to illness-the divinity within us, In specific, Dr. Bach says the human weaknesses that lead to illness need to be washed away by flooding our consciousness with a strong dose of the spiritual qualities that will neutralize them, To aid in this process, Dr. Bach recommends the use of flower remediesthe essences of flowers which, when taken in the form of elixirs, act as antidotes to the emotional poisons which lead to illness.
The use of these remedies is described in the book's second section, “The Twelve Healers.” The final section, “The Bach Remedies Repertory” by F.J. Wheeler, M.D.” is a detailed account of the value of each of the 38 flower remedies and how to use them. (Note: all of these remedies are available through amazon.com at discount prices.

The remedies work by mixing two to four drops into a glass of water and then sipping the water slowly. Or, when a glass of water is not available, two to four drops can be applied just underneath the tongue. In brief, the 38 remedies and the conditions they cure are:
