In 1912 Edward Bach qualified as a medical doctor and embarked upon a career which not only had a profound effect on medical science, but brought to ordinary people the world over, a simple, safe and effective system of healing. Dr. Bach made a detailed study of bacteriology, immunology and homeopathy and found a clear connection between chronic disease and negative mental attitudes. It was the relationship between mind and body which formed the basis of his further research and as he became increasingly convinced that emotional harmony was the key to good health, he was determined to find a simple, non-invasive and harmless method of healing which could be used safely by everyone. The Medical Discoveries of Edward Bach tells how Dr. Bach's work developed, from his childhood hopes and dreams of a healthy society, to the discovery of a complete system of 38 natural remedies which address all aspects of human nature, emotional outlook and personality. Edward Bach was an eminent physician whose remarkable contribution to medicine, healing and humanity has yet to be fully realised.

The Flower Remedies discovered by Dr Edward Bach, MB, BS, MRCS, LRCP, DPH, are now used extensively throughout the world. They have earned themselves a highly respected reputation and many books have, over the years, been written on the subject to compliment Dr Bach’s own Heal Thyself Healers & Other Remedies which represent the culmination and final record of his life’s work. Throughout his career, Dr Bach wrote many papers and literary compositions and this book provides a collection of his most inspirational work. It has been compiled with a great deal of thought and careful respect for his wishes. This book gives readers an opportunity to share his most uplifting and inspirational writings and stories, many of which have been reproduced in their original long-hand. Also included are character portraits by his friends and colleagues, some early photographs, letters and his own recorded case histories. Collectively they provide a wonderful insight into Dr Bach’s thoughts and precise intentions for the future of his work. This book, compiled by the curators and trustees of the Dr Edward Bach Healing Trust, offers a most enlightening and intimate appreciation of this great physician.
Examining Complementary Medicine is one of the first books to take a critical look at complementary medicine from the inside, with contributions from leading figures in this growing field of interest. Until recently, criticism and analysis of complementary therapy has come exclusively from orthdox medicine, but with the widespread adoption of complementary therapies within conventional medical therapeutic practices, the time is now right for critical self-analysis on the part of practitioners within complementary therapies. Andrew Vickers has assembled leading figures to discuss the major concepts of complementary medicine and to expose hitherto hidden flaws in the reasonong and knowledge thought to underpin complementary medicine. the controversial nature of some of the contributions is intended to provoke further critical analysis within the professions, and it is hoped that the book will contribute to an intellectually rigorous theoretical basis for complementary practice.
In the 1920s, the physician and homeopath Dr Edward Bach made his great discovery of the healing effects of various flower essences, which resulted in thirty-eight 'flower remedies'. Bach described them as 'bringing courage to the fearful, peace to the anguished, and strength to the weak', but the therapeutic effects of the remedies go beyond emotional states. They are equally effective in the treatment of physical disorders. Julian Barnard describes how Bach made his discoveries. He examines the living qualities of the plants in their context, and looks at how the remedies are actually produced. The result is remarkable. Barnard recounts his observations so that readers can experience for themselves the complex ways in which the remedy plants grow -- their gestures and qualities, ecology, botany, and behaviour.
