Dr. Edward Bach

Dr Bach passed away peacefully on the evening of November Dr Edward Bach studied medicine at the University College

Hospital, London, and was a House Surgeon there. He worked in general practice, having a set of consulting rooms in Harley Street, and as a bacteriologist and later a pathologist he worked on vaccines and a set of homoeopathic nosodes still known as the seven Bach nosodes.

He wrote 22 books which remain as best sellers in the area of

. During his medical training he noticed that Mental and Emotional Conditions   Influenced the Course of Recovery Effected the Efficiency of Administered Medicines.Deepak 6 .Edward Bach: (1886-1936). 12/26/2011 Dr.

That the mind and emotions played an important role in process of disease and cure 12/26/2011 Dr. . .He concluded .Deepak 7 .

He identified 7 major types of personalities. .After completion of his medical training and branching in to Bacteriology««. . He now began to study closely the mental and physical differences of these 7 types which he had identified.  Dr.Deepak  12/26/2011 8 .

Each type of personality had its own distinct specific intestinal flora.  12/26/2011 Dr.Deepak 9 . indicating that  intestinal flora not only mirror physical health but also have an affinity with the type of personality and its major mental / emotional tendencies.

12/26/2011 Dr.The new theory was accepted readily in the early 20s and pointed that Intestinal toxemia.Deepak 11 . that is caused by non-lactose fermenting organisms are the leading cause of chronic diseases.

Deepak Mental imbalance 12/26/2011 Ch. Disease 12 . Intestinal Toxemia Chronic disease  While studying the responses he was increasingly convinced that true origin of disease lay in Mental and Emotional imbalance with the intestinal toxemia arising there from. Intestinal Toxemia Dr. Accordingly Bach Bowels Nosodes (based on personality traits) were administered to cleanse the system from within and help body ward off symptoms of chronic diseases.

That all chronic diseases start in the mind and emotions. unless obvious external factors were responsible He Finally Formulated the theory 12/26/2011 Dr. the Nosodes were recognized and used toward cure of physical diseases alone. He felt his current theory neglected this important aspect. Instead of concentrating on the mind as a causative factor.Deepak 13 .

He felt that much physical suffering 12/26/2011 Dr.could be prevented if Remedies akin to the Nosodes were found that were prescribed on mental / emotional characteristics thereby preventing physical symptoms.Deepak 14 .

. Took inspiration from Homoeopathy and made changes in his method- ‡ Moved away from syringes to pill form of administration of medicines. ‡ Moved away from usage of Nosodes (made from diseased product) to natural healing plant for healing 12/26/2011 Dr.Deepak 15 . .Search intensifies .

Depression Anxiety Introspection and grief Dysentry.Star of Bethlehem Mimulus Morgan Shock. nervousness and Shyness Irritability.Deepak .

He abandoned his use of Nosodes completely and concentrated his efforts in identifying the foremost mental/ emotional imbalances found in man while collecting and researching possible corresponding healing plants. He was able to identify 12 outstanding states of mind or 12 personality types basic to humanity. He integrated the earlier 7 types of personalities that he had identified initially in to his new perspective. 12/26/2011 Dr.Deepak 17 .

12/26/2011 Dr. He named them ³Helpers´ or those that are complementary to the core 12 states.Helpers  Over years he identified 7 more additional states.Deepak 19 . which complimented the basic 12.

Helpers not only help mental states but also temporary upsets.Whereas the 12 Healers address major parts or personality traits Helpers deal with long standing states of mental and emotional suffering that have become entrenched in the character as a whole and have begun to over shadow the true personality.Deepak 20 . 12/26/2011 Dr.
