Bach Flower Remedies work towards balancing the patient’s emotional state. During the first half of the 20th Century, Dr. Edward Bach developed a comprehensive healing system. It is intended to help to establish inner peace and develop emotional self-awareness.
He did this by harnessing the strengths of particular medicinal plants, popularly known ever since as Bach Flower Remedies.
The healing system was developed as a truly comprehensive system, by classifying small emotional problems into seven larger groups.
