Especially useful for children
You can look up the HISTORY of BAch therapy on the internet, how it all started.
For my highly sophisticated colleagues [ or even patients] who may judge this as another placebo ” Quack-therapy”, I wish them the same good results with THEIR PLACEBOS!
I have not worked extensively with this branch of medicine but it is worth looking into it. I often advise it to people who want to start learning some “alternative medicine”
Reasons: for my advice:
Can be learned at home without expensive tuition, just some of more books needed
It is straightforward [but does need some “out of the box” thinking and intuition]
It is quite easy to learn, and the material is limited to 39 remedies
It can be used for many “daily problems” where people often may get sent to psychiatrist for [totally] wrong reasons. [if it is not for emergency mental problem’s]
THE DIAGNOSIS IS MADE BY LISTENING TO and OBSERVING THE PATIENT.
The treatment is safe for all ages and conditions and also for people who are taking official drugs .
I have a few books by Bach and I think that the best written one is by Philip Chancellor.
I will send you the picture of one of the remedies: Scleranthus from this book.
Interesting is the mentioning of seasickness [ =”OUT OF BALANCE”]. a real physical symptom between all the other symptoms [Therefore I wrote that you may also need some “out of the box thinking”
CHAPTER 29 SCLERANTHUS Keywords: Uncertainty; indecision; hesitancy; unbalance SCLERANTHUS is the Remedy for those people who suffer from indecision. They lack the ability to make up their minds, and thus they are swayed between two things or possibilities. The SCLERANTHUS SCLERANTHUS type also experiences extremes of joy or sadness, energy or apathy, pessimism or optimism, laughing or crying. To a certain extent, they are unreliable and uncertain, because they are unable to concentrate due to their constantly changing outlook. Their conversation is sometimes erratic, because they tend to jump from one subject to another. In spite of this, they are quiet people, and they do not ask the advice of one and all as the CERATO person does. They waste valuable time because they cannot make up their minds, and at times they may lose an opportunity because they cannot reach a decision. In an illness, their symptoms come and go or move about. There is pain first in one place and then in another; the temperature may swing up or down and progress is erratic. The lack of poise and balance of the SCLERANTHUS type may cause various kinds of motion sickness, such as air-sickness or sea-sickness. Extracts from patients’ letters include such remarks as these: “I have a magpie mind, full of bits and pieces”; or “Mind is a grasshopper mentality, always going from one subject to another in a disconnected fashion”; again, “During the day I am very active and confident but at night I have a complete reversal. I doubt my decisions, and regret certain activities, and this wakes me up or prevents me from going to sleep.” A daughter wrote: “My mother has suffered from periodic attacks of asthma since her youth. She seems to go through extremes of great, though non-productive, activity, and complete exhaustion. She finds it difficult to keep a steady mean.” Others say: “My moods vary like the restless sea”; “I am riding the clouds when things go well, and depressed when even the most trivial things go wrong.” These quotations are typical of the SCLERANTHUS state of mind. The positive aspects of SCLERANTHUS reflects calmness and determination. Such people are quick to make a decision and prompt in action. They are those who keep their poise and balance under all occasions.CASE HISTORIES Man, age 70. He was, by nature, a quiet and kind person. He had suffered from constipation for the last 60 years. He said that it was brought on through indecision, and the resulting worry. Whenever he was called upon to make a decision, either at home or at work, he suffered agonies of irresolution before he could make up his mind. It had taken him three months to reach the decision to come to us for treatment! It was the sudden death of his wife, and the consequent loneliness, that finally prompted him to do so. SCLERANTHUS the type Remedy was prescribed for his indecision; GORSE for his hopelessness; STAR OF BETHLEHEM for the shock the loss of his wife caused. He reported within three weeks that while his constipation had not improved, he was feeling better and more hopeful. Most important of all, he said that he had decided upon the future course of his life. SCLERANTHUS the type Remedy was prescribed alone. After two months, he stated that he was no longer troubled with indecision, nor constipation, and that he felt much more confident than he did before. Some years later he wrote to us and said that he had no relapse, and none of the conditions had returned.
