Uniqueness of flower therapy
Flower therapy differs from homeopathy and phytotherapy (herbal plant products).
Flower therapy, although involving the use of dilutions - like homeopathy, doesn’t follow the same method and it’s based on the idea that what’s good (the flower) can cure what’s bad (discomfort, illness). Homeopathy is based on the use of substances that are not only plants and the basic principle is "like cures like".
Phytotherapy, instead, involves the use of undiluted plant’s extracts and it follows a generally symptomatic pattern, aimed at the strengthening of the physique.
Flower therapy cares about the individual as a whole and in its uniqueness. It doesn’t matter which symptom occurs, but how the individual relates to the symptom.
One of the fundamental principles for Bach was simplicity. The method to follow to choose which remedy to give is simple and the use of the remedies is really easy to understand. They can be used in the family or by people around us.
Every essence is extracted from field’s flowers or from inflorescences coming from trees and non-toxic and harmless shrubs. Only one of the essences is made from spring water (Rock Water).
The effectiveness of flower therapy comes from the fact that it doesn’t affect the disease but the person with the disease, his reactions to the disease and his moods while being sick. Flower therapy is also effective with particular moods that hinder our wellbeing when we no longer feel like ourselves or when we feel that there’s something wrong because of problems we’re obsessed by.
Flower therapy doesn’t fight the disease, but it helps developing those qualities that enable us to overcome it.
