A HISTORY OF BACH 
The Bach® Original Flower Remedies were developed by Dr. Edward Bach, a Harley Street doctor and well known Physician, Bacteriologist, Homeopath and London Researcher. He felt dissatisfied with the way doctors were expected to concentrate on diseases and ignore the people who were suffering from them. He was inspired by his work with homoeopathy but wanted to find remedies that would be more pure and less reliant on the products of disease. So in 1930 he gave up his lucrative Harley Street practice and left London, determined to devote the rest of his life to a new system of medicine that he was sure could be found in nature. 

Dr. Bach believed that attitude of the mind plays a vital role in maintaining health and recovering from illness and wanted to find something that treated the cause rather than the symptom. After identifying 38 basic negative states of mind and spending several years exploring the countryside, he managed to create a plant or flower based remedy for each one. He found that when he treated the personalities and feelings of his patients their unhappiness and physical distress would be alleviated as the natural healing potential in their bodies was unblocked and allowed to work once more. His premise was that emotional health could open the door to physical health. 

In 1934, Dr. Bach decided to settle down and create a centre for his work, and chose Mount Vernon, a small cottage in Sotwell, Oxfordshire. He spent the last years of his life at Mount Vernon, also known as the Bach Centre, and it was here that he completed his research developing the 38 Bach® Original Flower Remedies as well as the all-natural stress relief blend, Rescue® Remedy.

Seventy years after his death, Dr. Bach’s original remedies are sold in 66 countries worldwide. The guiding principle of ‘simplicity and purity in the method’ remains paramount for all those who work preparing and distributing the remedies, which are still made to his exact specifications at his home, Mount Vernon, in Oxfordshire. 

“Health is our heritage, our right. It is the complete and full union between soul, mind and body; and this is no difficult far-away ideal to attain, but one so easy and natural that many of us have overlooked it.” ~ Heal Thyself, Dr. Edward Bach.

A GUIDE TO RESCUE® REMEDY
 

WHAT IS RESCUE® REMEDY?
RESCUE® Remedy is a blend of 5 individual flower remedies, specially formulated by Dr. Bach, to provide relief for various forms of everyday stress. Bach® Original Flower Remedies are a system of natural medicine developed by Dr. Edward Bach, an English physician, over 70 years ago. The 38 flower extracts are prepared from English wildflowers and plants that were found to have a positive calming affect on emotional imbalances. 

HOW DO FLOWER REMEDIES WORK?
Listed in the HPUS book, (Homeopathic Pharmacopia of the United States) homeopathic remedies address physical symptoms, while Dr. Bach’s Original Flower Remedies address emotional symptoms that may cause physical ailments. The effect of taking Bach® Original Flower Remedies, like RESCUE® Remedy, is not to suppress negative attitudes but to transform them into positive ones, stimulating one’s own potential for self-healing and freeing the physical system to engage fully in fighting disease and stress. 

HOW DO I TAKE RESCUE® REMEDY?
Ingest 4 drops, or 2 sprays, of RESCUE® Remedy orally at least 4 times a day, more frequently if necessary depending on the acuteness of the situation. RESCUE® Remedy can also be added to a beverage for an ongoing administration of the remedy. In addition, RESCUE® Remedy can be blended with other Bach® Original Flower Remedies. 

HOW QUICKLY DOES RESCUE® REMEDY WORK?
The speed with which RESCUE® Remedy works depends on the situation. If the stressful emotional issue has been with you for a long time, it may take several weeks for the product to work. If, on the other hand, the issue is recent or fleeting, RESCUE® Remedy may work within a few doses. 

IS RESCUE® REMEDY SAFE?
RESCUE® Remedy and the Bach® Original Flower Remedies are completely safe, have no known side effects, are non-addictive and do not negatively interact with other homeopathic or allopathic medicines. The remedies can be taken as often and for as long as necessary. As with all conditions treated over the counter, you should seek the help of your doctor or homeopathic practitioner if the symptoms are persistent or deteriorate.

IS RESCUE® REMEDY FDA APPROVED?
Since 1938, the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act has regulated homeopathic remedies, like RESCUE® Remedy, as an OTC drug, which means that it can be purchased without a physician’s prescription. 

Homeopathic medicines are required to meet certain legal standards for strength, quality, purity, and packaging. In 1988, the FDA required that all homeopathic remedies list the indications for their use (i.e., the medical problems to be treated) on the label.22,23 The FDA also requires the label to list ingredients, dilutions, and instructions for safe use.
 

IS RESCUE® REMEDY SAFE FOR CHILDREN AND PETS?
RESCUE® Remedy is safe, gentle, and effective for people of all ages, including children. It is also widely recommended by veterinarians for emotional and behavioral problems in pets. 

HAS THE FORMULA OF THE REMEDIES CHANGED?
The formula used today is the exact formula developed by Dr. Bach in the 1930’s. The mother tinctures are still prepared at Mount Vernon in England according to Dr. Bach’s methods. Dr. Bach personally asked Nelsons to be the manufacturer and distributor for the remedies.
