They are not used directly for physical complaints but for the sufferer's worry, because negative moods not only hinder recovery of health, they are generally accepted as primary causes of sickness and disease. They are very beneficial if the sufferer is experiencing fear or anxiety, depression or loneliness. They can help through times of change and uncertainty, shock or oversensitivity. The Rescue Remedy is a combination of 5 Bach Flower Remedies generally used for emergencies, offering comfort and reassurance to those suffering distressing experiences.
Bach Flower Remedies can be taken by people of all ages, there is no danger of an overdose or side effects, and should the wrong choice be made, no harm will ensue. They will not be influenced by, nor will they affect any form of medicine prescribed to a person. They are however preserved in a solution of grape alcohol and caution should be taken by those unable to tolerate even the smallest amount of alcohol.
At an initial consultation with a registered practitioner you will have time to discuss your problems and the workings of the remedies will be explained to you. A tailor-made remedy will be made up and instructions given on how they should be taken for maximum effect.
The key to the Remedies is Simplicity and a practitioner will try to help you to understand how you can, with a little bit of practice, learn which remedies to choose for yourself in the future, whenever you feel they may be of help to you
The Dr. Edward Bach Centre,
Mount Vernon, Oxfordshire was where Dr Bach lived and worked and discovered
his healing flowers in the surrounding fields and hedgerows. These same flower
locations are still used in the preparation of the Bach Flower Remedies by
the present custodians, who are dedicated to maintaining the method and use
of the Remedies as intended by Dr Bach.
