THE FLOWERS OF BACH
IDENTIFICATION OF THE PLANT
Remedy name Bach flower: beech

WHO IS THIS REMEDY FOR
The Bach flower remedy beech or beechit is considered the remedy for excesses as it is indicated for people who are particularly intolerant towards everything and every person. These are the uncompromising classics that are never okay with anything; they are hypercritical of both circumstances and people and very fussy.
In practice the beech remedy is indicated for people who have to learn to be more tolerant and flexible because due to their braggart behavior they often find themselves isolated. In fact, these are people who under this facade of great intransigence are very insecure and lack self-criticism for which they unload themselves with others, showing great arrogance especially towards those who make mistakes, becoming almost judges who "condemn" everything shamelessly and all. They are people who cannot look within themselves and for this reason they unload their intolerance on others, which however passes very quickly as they do not hold a grudge.
The beech has been associated with this type of person as it appears to be a majestic and powerful tree, with such a dense foliage that it creates a large shadow at its base that prevents the undergrowth from growing. Furthermore, despite its size, it has a shallow root system so that a particularly violent wind can uproot it. So in the symbolism of the Bach flowers this tree is considered insecure, despite its imposing appearance, in the same way as the people it represents and for whom these remedies are indicated.
Edward Bach writes: «For those who feel the need to see more goodness and beauty in all that surrounds them and, although much seems wrong, they feel they have the ability to discern what is good. To be more tolerant, more indulgent and to better understand the different ways in which each individual and all things strive to reach their final perfection ». (1)

There Flower therapy was annexed between Alternative Medicines fromWHO from the 1976. It represents an emerging branch of biological medicine, which uses a series of natural essences prepared from wild flowers. The study of the healing properties of flowers, heritage of ancient medical traditions from different parts of the world, was particularly cared for, for the first time in modern and original key, by the Welsh physician Edward Bach, between the years 1926 and 1934. The method of preparation, although recognized by the English homeopathic pharmacopoeia, is different from the classic preparation of homeopathic remedies, because it does not use either the Hahnemannian succussion or the Korsakovian flow dilution. The final infusion has a particular "field information" capable of resonating with our body. What is this information in physical terms in flower therapy? we are still studying it: an electromagnetic field, a coherence domain in water clusters, a force field with nuclear spin orientation? Science has already largely demonstrated how information can be captured by the paramagnetic and piezoelectric structures of the human body, to form "domains of coherence", "chaotic attractors", and certainly the remedies we are talking about are " attractors ”,“ resonators ”able to act on the mind and body.
The great discovery - Bach flowers I'm a series of 38 essences natural (plus a compound, the Rescue Remedy ), which encompass the scale of 38 archetypal and universal negative behavioral patterns of human nature, independent of age, sex and race. They are essences extracted from the wild flowers of Wales that have healing properties. They were discovered between 1926 and 1934 by Dr. Edward Bach, who developed a theory according to which man is considered in a three-dimensional way, an integrated totality of three structural levels: mental, emotional-spiritual, and physical.
All floral concentrates can be combined with each other in any way, depending on individual needs. As a rule, a number from 4 to 7 flowers. Bach, however, came to combine them also 12 in the first cocktail. There are 2,760,681 possibilities for a combination administration including six Bach flowers!
General - These are flowers, bushes and trees that are not cultivated, non-toxic, not used for human consumption and mostly of modest appearance. They are collected in the wild in certain places not contaminated by man, otherwise they lose all healing properties. Thanks to the ability to release "energies", they have the ability to act directly on our energy system with a natural process, favoring communication with our spiritual sense, flooding our spirituality with the virtues we need and purifying the character alterations that are at the origin of our sufferings. Their action is directed to the nervous system, to the psyche.
Negative moods - Pride, cruelty, hatred, selfishness, greed, jealousy, envy, suspicion, resentment, fears, restlessness, anxieties, discouragement, uncertainty, distrust, phobia, instability, loneliness, apathy, excessive altruism, and other character defects, hinder our progression towards perfection, spiritual restructuring, purification and conscious development of the personality.
The Organic Disease - According to Bach it would arise from the conflict that can arise when the personality does not live in harmony with one's being and generates an imbalance in the individual's energy field. It should be interpreted as an alarm bell that signals the need to intervene to bring the system back to balance, avoiding the collapse of the organic-emotional system.
The healing - There is no true healing without a balance in the way of life, without inner peace and joy. With Flower Therapy, negative moods are flooded with higher harmonic energetic "vibrations", restoring the conflict between the aspirations of the soul and the desires of the personality. Healing thus develops through seven steps, in ascending order: peace, hope, joy, faith, certainty, wisdom, love. To heal the body, therefore, it is necessary to heal the mind. "Healthy body in healthy mind".
Prevention - At this point it can be deduced that infirmity can also be prevented, and it is our duty to do so, by choosing to cultivate constructive moods.
They split up in typological remedies, that is, proper to the personality of the subject, and in help or complementary remedies, to be used according to momentary situations. Some flower remedies are 'typological', that is, they apply to the constitution and specific temperament of the person. Others, on the other hand, are prescribed in situations of temporary discomfort, depending on the changes in mood and emotions of a given moment. It is therefore necessary to be attentive to the elasticity of moods that can change frequently, to learn to delicately dig through the folds of one's feelings. However, one must avoid falling into the temptation to self-medicate when one is not fully aware of oneself. The wrong choice of flower remedies can lead to disappointing results and erroneous and unjust judgments about the therapy itself. Finally, remember that those who lie to themselves in a certain sense deny healing and chronicize their negative character tendencies. The diagnosis therefore, since Bach's remedies are aimed at the mental stages, is rather fine, it requires interviews of over an hour by the therapist who, on a medical-clinical and psychological basis, armed with sensitivity, openness and technical ability in 'going beyond words will lead the patient to know himself in an authentic way, to make his defects more aware, to search for what creates discomfort and tension in his intimate life and in his behavior towards his fellow men and towards himself. The expert, working with all possible dedication, will offer the patient an atmosphere of absolute trust and involve him in the diagnostic process, helping him to interpret instincts, emotions and thoughts, identifying the negative emotions and mental conditions that lie behind the organic disorders and that they open the door to infirmity, helping him to recognize his state or his illness as a legitimate part of the personality, to understand its meaning and to take responsibility for it internally, without condemning. It will also accompany the crisis of awareness.
Change - We must consciously aspire to change and know that a positive transformation will occur in us. The changes are subtle and gradual and consist first of all in a change of mood up to a complete well-being (it is necessary to consider that the conditions that have been created in the organism over the years cannot be abolished overnight) . We must wait for the process of purification and clarification with interest and love, only then will it be accelerated. In time, the personality will refine more and more with an underlying positive attitude.
With Bach Flowers Nature itself is allowed to act, and over time there is a gradual harmonization and development of the personality.. Healing in chronic diseases can begin with astonishing speed. Individuals who are open and interested in the immaterial world react to flowers more quickly than those who reject such thoughts on principle, or who unconsciously want to silence the voice of their Higher Self, perhaps because they tend to repress their problems. The elderly, especially if they suffer from chronic diseases, usually react a little more slowly to the flowers.
Duration of treatment - The flower essences must be taken while the state of suffering or imbalance lasts, the disturbances cease when the remedy has acted, and therefore it is no longer necessary. Therefore the complete absence of addiction risk is guaranteed. They do not interfere with traditional or homeopathic medicines, and do not cause unwanted effects. Children, the elderly, adolescents, pregnant women, can use them safely. They are even successfully administered to plants and animals. What can sometimes occur is a first reaction of intensification of symptoms, especially when a painful and repressed thought for years, suddenly enters the fullness of consciousness.
Bach flowers and psychotherapy - This fruitful combination sometimes represents the decisive turning point, so that the root causes of the disease become internally accessible to the patient .
Purpose of floral therapy: the purpose it is not the change, but it development of personality. The method is inspired by the message: "be yourself, become who you are". The goal is to overcome the spiritual blocks to re-establish communication with the word soul, otherwise known as the SUPERIOR I, divine spark or inner doctor, through: the re-harmonization of negative behavior patterns, for example by passing from irritability to patience, to aim to obtain the reactivation of the psychic and physical self-healing capacities, according to the principle "heal yourself".
The therapeutic indications of the Floral Remedies they are certainly and in the first instance, indications aimed at correcting emotional distress. The Remedies are highly recommended for anxiety crises, for mild to moderate depression, for some forms of phobia, for insomnia and psychosomatic disorders. But also very interesting are the rebalancing effects that Flower Remedies express on emotional distress and reactive feelings to important organic problems such as: heart attack, cancer, AIDS, etc. Lately, many applications of a strictly and primarily physical nature are being discovered in the context of the use of Floral Remedies: treatment of pain, inflammation, allergic reactions, itching and so on. In addition to acting deeply on the mind, numerous flower remedies have in fact, also interesting physical effects there are flowers and revulsive effect on trauma or inflammation, other remedies that act on allergic eczema or cough, still others on colds or cellulite.
Edward Bach (1886-1936) was an established and respected Welsh-born physician and bacteriologist. In addition, he had the gift of simplicity of mind, attention and love for
everything around him. He thus noticed that people often feel bad as a consequence of disharmonies, of profound imbalances derived from the outside: education
received, the traumas suffered, the individual and social relationships not balanced. And, in the long walks in the countryside, observing the spontaneous vegetation, he also noticed the
behavior of the single species of plants: the determination to live despite hostile environmental conditions, the ability to defend oneself, to overcome various difficulties.
The Impatiens, for example, when touched opens the capsules containing the seeds and splashes them away, to ensure reproduction. It was the thirties of
last century. Doctor Bach identified the "essential character" of some botanical specimens and said to himself: why not pass it on to men to help them when
do they face obstacles of the same kind? Moreover, in nature like cures like, as claimed a century earlier Samuel Hahnemann, founder of homeopathy,
that Bach followed. Perhaps, we and the flowers (the most energetic part of the plant, because it assimilates the light and the solar vitality more) are on the same wavelength.
In the universe, we know today, everything is vibration, on different frequencies. Why exclude that certain particularly high frequencies - those of flowers, such as those of colors,
applied in chromotherapy - can they interact with the electromagnetic fields of the human body? Doctor Bach who guessed or assumed it. To capture the vibration
emotional aspect of the flower and transferring it to our organism, consisting mainly of water, he thought precisely of water. There they are immersed the wild flowers are exposed to the sun,
then there is the dilution in water and brandy so that they do not spoil. In this way the preparations known as "Bach Flowers'" are obtained.
