1. Introduction

The Bach flower remedy was discovered by Dr. Edward Bach (MBBS), London. With the intent of finding simple and easy medical treatment, he closed his lucrative medical practice and travelled through the forests to conduct the research. Gradually, he learnt various medicinal uses of flowers. He conducted his study for almost 40 years and developed 39 types of medicines. He took into consideration the following principles of nature while studying this therapy.

A. Nature always works towards perfection

B. Nature produces abundantly.

C. The paths of nature are very simple and easy.

D. Nature’s paths are eternal.

If the above principles are true then a thought came to his mind that there definitely must be a therapy made available by the nature which would be harmless and one can treat oneself with it. That therapy is Bach flower therapy. There are 39 medicines in this which have been extracted from wildflowers growing in the jungles. All these medicines are available in natural form and have no side effects. This therapy creates changes in one’s personality and the medicines are prescribed as per one’s personality.
