The Bach Flower Essences were discovered by Dr. Edward Bach, a Welsh physician practicing medicine in the early 1900’s. Trained in conventional allopathic medicine, Dr. Bach observed that his patients’ recovery seemed to have as much to do with their emotional health as it did with any physical condition. Those in a positive emotional state recovered quicker.
Dr. Bach developed a total of 38 different Bach Flower Essences, 37 made from specific flowers and one made from the water of a spring believed to have healing properties. Each essence is used to treat a specific emotion or state of mind such as fear, anger, apathy, anxiety, anger, grief, etc.
The Bach Flower Essences may be used individually or in combination. Rescue Remedy® is the only combination remedy prepared and sold ready-made; it contains five essences and is typically only used for emergencies or extremely stressful situations when the subject is in a state of mental or physical shock, terror, or panic.
These essences should not be used as a replacement for veterinary care, but it is often used as a complement to traditional treatments. Bach Flower Essence are not used to treat physical disease, but rather the emotional state of the animal. The Bach Flower Essences are very safe and be used in conjunction with normal vet care, chemo therapy, radiation and insulin treatments.
