After nearly one hundred years, the success rate of treating mental heath ailments has progressed little. In his book, Heal Thyself, Dr. Edward Bach discusses the variability of results from the various treatments available at his time. He was disturbed by the lack of consistency in treating the symptoms. A similar situation exists today with results from pharmaceuticals, eastern medicine, acupuncture and various energy healing techniques, including Dr. Bach’s own Bach Flower Remedies.
The theme of my trilogy, Torn Between Two Worlds, is to highlight scientific anomalies that are not currently understood with a materialistic viewpoint and to suggest a holistic approach that can help to encourage researchers to look at other factors not currently part of their experiments. In the case of Bach, this is the logical step he took. He boldly named his book Heal Thyself because he truly believed that it is the patient who knows the most about the underlying causes of their ailments, they just need to be empowered in order to treat themselves.
It seems logical to me that when anomalous results exist, that there are more variables involved in the solution to consider. Currently, medical professionals are discouraged from looking for non-materialistic factors and non-materialistic results. Dr. Bach went out into nature and discovered thirty-six essences that are effective in treating the sources of many ailments such as anxiety, depression, and mental distress. These essences are of an ethereal nature. They are the direct transfer of the flower’s essence into water using sunlight and contain no material components. There are other similar studies that have come to the same conclusion, notably Dr. Emoto’s use of Hado water in treating similar ailments.
