My treatments often use a combination of both herbal and flower remedies but they can also be used as separate treatments. Herbal medicine is very physical in its treatment potential often used to deal with clear physical symptoms and can positively support every body system. The Bach flower remedies work on a purely emotional level targeting specific emotional states such as trauma or anxiety.
Herbal medicine is medicine made from plants utilising their properties to encourage natural healing on a physical and emotional level. It has been the main source of medicine used by people for thousands of years and there are many herbal traditions around the world. Herbal medicine focuses on the patient and the cause of their illness rather than the symptoms that they have. A consultation will involve discussing physical and emotional history including diet, lifestyle, conventional medications and nutritional supplements.
Bach Flower Remedies
There are 38 remedies in the Bach remedy system. All of them were discovered by Dr Edward Bach, a well-known physician. Each remedy is associated with a basic human emotion. Mimulus, for example, is for when we are anxious or afraid about something specific. Taking the remedy helps us overcome our fear and face it with courage. A consultation will involve discussing your past and present emotional health and how you'd like to feel in the future.
