Bach Flower Remedies for Beginners

This article was written by David Vennells
posted under Health & Healing

What can a simple drop of dew do? Four drops of a liquid infusion of Gentian flowers can help to banish doubt. The same amount of Scleranthus can begin to clear up indecision. Exhaustion yields to the flower of the Olive, and the extremely hopeless can find solace with Gorse. How is this possible?

While walking in the English countryside one late spring morning in 1930, Dr. Edward Bach placed some fresh dew from a particular flower on his tongue. He was immediately uplifted both mentally and physically. An exciting thought came to him: The healing energies of the sun, clean air, clean water, and the flowers of specific plants might be combined to create a simple, yet powerful set of healers.

Dr. Bach had been searching for replacements for the homeopathic cures he had developed while a physician at London’s Homeopathic Hospital. Even though his homeopaths were quite successful—some are still used today—Bach believed there were even better, simpler, more natural remedies. He had made it his life’s work to find them.

During the years that followed, Bach turned from conventional medicine to pursue his discovery of natural remedies. It wasn’t long before he had discovered and developed his basic Twelve Healers, plus the additional Four Helpers. He also developed a better way of empowering or “potentizing” his flower remedies. But even this wasn’t enough for him. He continued his quest, testing and discarding hundreds more potential healers, eventually ending up with a complete set of thirty-eight Bach Flower Remedies. He had achieved his wish to create a simple, natural system of remedies that anyone could learn to use.

In Bach Flower Remedies for Beginners, David Vennells provides all the information you need to learn and use Dr. Bach’s remarkable system of remedies. From the Twelve Healers to the famous Rescue Remedy, Vennells give full descriptions of each remedy, how to prescribe and administer each, and actual case histories of people tapping the curative powers of sun, air, water, and earth. In addition, he gives a fascinating look into the life and work of Dr. Edward Bach from the perspective of a practicing Buddhist.
