Flower remedies are called a series of natural essences extracted from wild flowers, whose healing properties were discovered by the English doctor Edward Bach between 1926 and 1934 , uses flower essences as medicines. Forty-two years later, in 1976 , this therapy was recognized by the World Health Organization as a very useful, simple, inexpensive system that can be used effectively, easily and safely without side, unpleasant and / or toxic effects. .
In 1999 the Ministry of Public Health made this technique official in Cuba . They are the result of a process of collection and processing, preferably of wild flowers in ecological zones free of environmental pollutants.
Flower therapy is a variant of alternative medicine, it is more widespread mainly in the industrialized world. It is a medical therapeutic system that involves psychotherapeutic, causal, medicinal, holistic (total), reacting and clinical aspects of spontaneous healing, through a reharmonization of one’s own consciousness.
In some way these concentrates are taken in order to rebalance the body when it has decompensated. They help to put everything back in its place as if it were a puzzle.
The basis of the treatment with flower essences stems from the philosophy: in the human organism there is an energetic balance. Many times, sustained or acute emotional disturbance breaks this balance and consequently conditions appear.
The flower essences through a personified treatment bring balance again, each one has the power to heal itself.
Bach believed that there were no diseases, only sick individuals. Your flower system is like a healing through the soul. It is a totally harmless method with no side effects or risk of overdose.
This therapeutic system is included within the so-called Vibrational or Bioenergetic Medicines, they are vibrational preparations that preserve the unique energy quality of a given flower.
The flower has the characteristics of an energy antenna that receives the energies of the cosmos (from the sun) through the air and the energies of the earth (through the stem and the root). The flower receives two types of energy (Yin-Yang) from its union and balance maintains its own energy with individual characteristics, which can be transferred to the water in the method of preparing the essence.
Flower essences constitute means of transformation of human beings by allowing the incorporation of harmonic qualities to the being, which become facilitators of integral personal growth.
Flower essences and interaction with the body
The flower essence acts once incorporated into the body, thanks to its vibrational characteristic, it comes into contact with the patient’s energy field and travels through it through the acupuncture meridians and goes to the chakras and energy organs, where it will be produced. the effect, which will manifest itself initially in emotional states and later, as far as possible, in matter.
The floral essence is a subtle energy field, kept in an alcove that, placed in the energy field of another subtle body of another living being, acts by harmonizing vibrational resonance. The flower does its work slowly and deliberately, incorporating a quality to the energy field of the being that needs it and producing in most cases a silent effect, so much so that the person, after a while, assumes that this harmonic characteristic of its being is its own and does not attribute its effect to the flower.
People, after taking the flower essence for a while, report not having felt important effects attributed to the flower, however, if they are questioned about symptoms or altered emotional states that were prior to taking the essence, they show that the They have changed, they do not usually know when such an event occurred, or under what circumstances and for this reason they do not attribute it to the floral action.
