Bach flower remedies FORM & FUNCTION
In the 1920s D. Edward Bach, a physician and homeopath, made his great discovery regarding the healing effects of a different flower essences. Intense and revolutionary, his experiences in nature resulted in thirty – eight flower „remedies.” He described these as bringing courage to the fearful, peace to the anguished, and strength to those who are weak. But the therapeutic effects of the remedies were never limited to emotional states. They are equally effective in the treatment of physical disorders.
This book begins the process of explaining why this may be so. It describes how Bach made his discoveries and examines the living qualities of the plants in their context and how the remedies are actually made. The result is remarkable. Julian Barnard recounts his observations so that readers can live into complex ways in which the remedy plants grow – their gestures and qualities, ecology, botany, an behavior. It is a „trumpet call” to attend to nature in a new way.
Barnard ends his book by writing: „Today disease and death control us ever more strongly with a litany of viruses, cancers, and heart disorders. The causes may be vaccinations, environmental poisons, despoliation of food, or pollution of the elements – earth, water, and air. For Bach the causes was clear and it is clear today: ‘it is only because we have forsaken Nature’s way for man’s way that we have suffered, and we have only to return to be released from our trials. In the presence of the way of Nature disease has no power; all fear, all depression, all hopelessness can be set aside. There is no disease of itself which is incurable.’”
