The use of floral medicine for emotional healing

(Humanity Healing) All healers that work with alternative healing know that a disease is the crystallization of a mental or emotional attitude and will treat this attitude until the sickness ceases.

Healing with floral medicine

“The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician. Therefore the physician must start from nature, with an open mind.”


The disease is not a material thing, but energy, and the drama of any disease tends to unfold itself inside of our energy field. Therapeutic healing actions are usually designed to influence the energy field, relieving the emotional body of the debris created by our daily lives which we are usually unable to rid of any other way.

Dr. Bach, with his research on alternative ways to treat illnesses, found that the dew and sunlight together can awaken the vibration of flowers and from there; he developed the sun steaming method that is used for the preparation of flower essences. Dealing with emotions without being sabotaged by them is one of the major challenges faced by those who wish to live with fullness and tranquility and balance.
