Edward Bach (1886-1936) was a doctor, a graduate of the UK, worked for a long time in England; his studies are born from the principles of homeopathy, starting from the assumption that to cure a disease it is necessary to cure man. Bach spent many years of his life searching for a method of natural cure that was intended to cure patients from the anxieties of everyday life; according to Bach, diseases are warning signs of our body, which invites us to reflect on our lifestyle, and to follow the path of human and spiritual growth, in order to be able to heal also from the diseases themselves: when we manage to have a good emotional balance, a fulfilling life, free from neuroses and negative mental states, the body itself is able to heal itself without external help. This type of medicine therefore starts from considerations on the life of patients, on how they live the disease state, and not on the symptoms they perceive or on the organ affected by the disease.
It is a completely different vision from that of traditional medicine, which over the years has given many positive results, with the most disparate diseases, but has never been scientifically proven.
Taking care of yourself with Bach flowers means first of all considering the negative feelings we feel, the things that cause us stress; with the help of a naturopath or an expert in this field, the remedy or remedies to be taken for the necessary period of time are identified; since these are natural products that act on man's deepest feelings and daily behavior, the treatments with these flowers are generally quite prolonged, sometimes it is necessary to take bach flower remedies for months before being able to resolve the problems that underlie the most frequent diseases. It may happen that the bach flowers give immediate effects, with sudden mood swings or very intense emotional states: in general this symptom indicates that those who advised us have correctly chosen the Bach flowers best suited to our temperament.
When we go to an expert we therefore expect to meet someone who will hardly ask us about the symptoms that afflict us, or about the diseases we have had in the past; more likely he will ask us how we feel, how we live with others, how we are today and in general what kind of person we think we are.
