This clearly written and easy-to-use little reference guide by one of my favorite authors is one that you will turn to again and again. If you seek an alternative natural and holistic approach to healing, then this book is for you. The Bach Flower Remedies have been around since the 1930's and have been used successfully by countless individuals, human and animal, to achieve emotional balance and inner peace safely and without side effects. The Remedies can be used with conventional drugs and are a complement to traditional medicine. Dr. Edward Bach, who was a practioner of traditional medicine, believed that physical diseases are the manifestations of a negative emotional state of mind and that by treating the root of the problem at the emotional level, the body will heal itself. This makes perfect sense to me! The book thoroughly describes each of the 38 Flower Remedies to help you choose the right ones for you. If you need help choosing your Remedies, you can always consult with a Bach Foundation Registered Practioner. This book also contains chapters on how to mix your own personalized treatment bottle and also how to create the Remedies yourself. There are also two fun exercises at the end of the book to help test your knowledge and understanding of which Remedy to use in certain situations.
