"Let not the simplicity of this method deter you from its use, for you will find the further your researches advance, the greater you will realize the simplicity of all creation"
- Dr. Edward BachIn Bach Flower Therapy, as in homeopathy, 'disease' is understood to be merely the end product of a much deeper disharmony in the patient's self. The mind being the most sensitive 'part' of the body, the disharmony that leads to disease, manifests itself most clearly in the mental outlook of the patient. Hence, in Bach Flower Therapy, the mental outlook of the patient alone is taken as the guide in selecting the remedies.
Bach Flower Therapy is based on 38 flower-based remedies, each of which can heal a particular negative emotional state. With these remedies, in the words of Edward Bach, "not only can we heal ourselves, but we have the great privilege of being able to help others to heal themselves, and the only qualifications necessary are love and sympathy." The remedies used are completely free of side effects, are non-habit-forming and can also be used for stress relief and self improvement.
