How Dr. Edward Bach's Development as a Medical Doctor Led to the Creation of the Bach Flower Remedies

Happy Birthday to Dr. Edward Bach, inventor of the Bach Flower Remedies!

Julian Barnard, who is quite the researcher in the field of flower essence therapy himself, has a set of videos about the Bach Flower Remedies on the Healing Herbs website. The first one gives a bit of the background behind how a respected medical doctor progressed from being a researcher in immunology to exploring homeopathy, the closest precursor to flower essence therapy. It's a very long video (31 minutes) by internet small attention span theater standards. But it is interesting if you're curious about how the body responds to flower essences and why. More conjecture in this video than proof, but it does give an idea of what the thinking might have been behind this innovative approach to health and well-being.

I use Bach flower remedies made by Healing Herbs and Julian Barnard in my Mama Love flower essence formulas.
