Bach Flowers and Homeopathy- Comparisons
Let's look at the differences and simillaities of both forms of care.
Bach Flower Remedies
Bach Flower remedies or essences were developed by Dr Edward Bach, a physician, bacteriologist, homeopath, surgeon, pathologist and dedicated researcher in the early 1900's.
By the 1930's he became dissatisfied with medicine's focus on just dieases rather than the patient, the person.
He had come to the conclusion that most physical illness was related to a negative state of emotions and, therefore, by correcting or balancing a negative state, there was a much improved chance of healing.
In his work he discovered and researched a natural system of medicine that reflected the relationships of the essences of 38 plants to various mental and emotional state of suffering humanity.
We can say Bach Flower Remedies affect mainly the mental and emotional states of a person, especially how the person has been feeling in the past moths to present.
A child cries because fearful of going to school. He complains to his mother and has diarrhea, a stomach-ache.
The problem isn't the school. The disturbance lies in his fear, worry and anxiety caused by the separation from the safety of his parents. Although these are physical symptoms that trouble the boy, by treating with the gentle healing effects of the correct Bach remedies his fear will reduce, he will feel more confident and the physical symptoms soften and diasappear.
In 1919 Dr. Bach worked at the London Homeopathic Hospital and was greatly influenced by the teacher and founder of homeopathy, Dr. Samual Hahnemann.
Homeopathy is a distinct medical art and science which uses tiny amounts of natural remedies to stimulate the body's inborn natural healing capacity- the immune system.
The homeopath makes recommendations based on the mental, emotional and physical
picture of the individual. The remedies are prepared by homeopathic pharmacies, under strict guidelines of the FDA.
Homeopathy attempts to see and address the deeper, and often more chronic, picture of the person.
Both forms of care are quite similar in that they are based on Nature and natural principles. You can choose either one or layer one form of therapy after the other.
They very easily complement one another and can be used at the same time.
