Can Flower Essences Address Your Mental Outlook?
Physician Edward Bach introduced Bach flower remedies to England in the 1930s. He theorized that people fell into seven groups, based on their reactions to illness. The groups are fear, uncertainty, loneliness, over-sensitivity, lack of interest in present circumstances, despondency, and over-concern for others.
He determined that to treat illness, one had to address patients’ emotional and mental states. Following the principles of homeopathy, he devised the flower essences for that purpose. Today, many homeopaths, naturopaths, chiropractors and herbalists still utilize flower essences in their practices with good success.
Several brands of flower essences are sold at health food stores for self-care, but you’ll need to determine, on your own, which particular emotional state you’re trying to treat and be sure to ask a practitioner which brands are sourced and prepared from organic and quality ingredients.
