    [Consists of thirty-eight remedies, each one
    containing trace quantity of a particular wild
    flower found in English forests—Discovered and
    Introduced by DR. EDWARD BACH, M.B.B.S.,
    M.R.C.S. of London around the year 1936.]

    [Results of three decades of practice,
    teaching and observation in the clinic, not as a
    profession but out of sheer academic interest]

    Call it psychiatry, psycho-neuropharmacology,
    philosophy, sociology,
    H.R.D., medicine, counselling etc., etc.
    the exact, accurate and one hundred percent correct solutions
    or answers to all difficulties and problems faced by the
    individual or society at large.
    This system consists of thirty-eight remedies, each one
    containing trace quantity of a non-toxic wild flower, found in
    their natural habitat in the English forest. (Medicine
    prepared from the cultivated flowers is not effective.) While
    all the thirty-eight flowers are found together in one place called
    Mount Vernon in England, most of the flowers are not to be
    found anywhere else on earth in their natural habitat. (Nature
    keeps her ways secret!)
    Around the year 1936, Dr. Edward Bach, M.B.B.S.,
    M.R.C.S., then practising in Harley Street (Hollywood of
    medical doctors) London, like Gautama Buddha, abandoned
    his lucrative medical practice in Harley Street and started going
    into the forest and slowly discovered the therapeutic and other
    effects of these flowers. The author of this book made an
    exploratory study of this system of medicine with forty years of
    practice and teaching. He is presenting in the following pages
    the uses of Dr. Bach Remedies. A set of 39 Bach remedies are
    being sold in all homoeopathic drug stores and leading
    departmental stores all over the world including gulf countries.

    The word ‘axiom’ means an accepted statement or
    proposition regarded as being self-evidently true (Oxford).
    Following are some of the axioms:

    Nature constantly works toward perfection.
    Nature produces in abundance.
    Nature’s ways are always short.
    Nature’s ways cannot be improved upon.

    In the face of the above, it is reasonable to expect that
    mighty Nature ought to have given a medical system by which
    we should be able to cure ourselves, that too almost
    instantaneously (without any detailed knowledge of pathology
    etc.) without side-effects, contra-indications or habit-forming

    Yes! Nature has given a complete medical system in the
    form of thirty-seven wild flowers that are non-toxic; surprisingly
    all these are found together in their natural habitat in a small
    village called Mount Vernon among the thick forests in England.
    Around the year 1936 Dr. Edward Bach, M.B.B.S., M.R.C.S.,
    then practising in Harley Street, London (Hollywood of medical
    doctors) abandoned his lucrative medical practice and went in
    search of a better and easy medical system so that everyone
    may treat and cure himself just as we take food when hungry
    or cover ourselves with woollen clothes in biting cold winter.
    To learn and master this subject called Dr. Bach Flower
    Remedies, it is sufficient if you spend just five days (daily three
    hours) with the author of this book.

    Dr. Bach Flower Remedies of England
    [Non-toxic and non-habit-forming]
    Discovered and Introduced by
    DR. EDWARD BACH, M.B.B.S., M.R.C.S. of London
    around the year 1936
    RESCUE REMEDY: This is one of the thirty-eight
    Bach remedies.
    For medical emergencies arising from traumatic causes—
    serious accidents, burns and scalds, electric shock or poisons
    where life is in danger, put one pill into the mouth of the victim.
    Moments later,

    (1) Bleeding, if any, stops almost instantaneously without a
    bandage, however long or deep the cut may be.

    (2) Unbearable pain is reduced to minimum.

    (3) If unconscious and the body has become ice cold, pulse/
    breath imperceptible, these are cured in just a minute, and
    the victim gets up and walks home as if nothing has
    happened (excepting, of course, fractures)––the more
    danger to life, the quicker the remedy acts!

    (4) In case of chemical poisons and poison-bites, the poison
    gets neutralized in no time;

    (5) In case of burns and scalds not only the burning pain
    comes down in less than a minute but also, simultaneously,
    all after-effects are prevented.

    No need to repeat the dose! Just one single dose however
    serious the condition of the victim may be. The more danger to
    life the quicker the remedy acts! Rescue Remedy is a nearpanacea
    for traumatic cases when patient may soon collapse.

    Rescue Remedy, given by mighty Nature, not only acts
    as a mere first aid in trauma cases but, in most cases,
    completely cures the patient (even before the time required to
    reach the victim to a hospital) so that no other treatment is
    required (fractures excepted). No need to repeat!
    But that is not the case with other medical systems known
    till date. After extensive burns if the victim goes to any qualified
    and registered medical practitioner, the latter has no medicine to
    prevent the after-effects of burns. At the most he would order
    ‘rest cure’—bleb formation taking place after a few days,
    discoloration of skin and disfiguration of the part by thickening
    of tissues etc.

    Won’t you like to keep a phial of Rescue Remedy in
    your vehicle and at home?


    Surgery too is a trauma. Before a few minutes or hours
    of major surgery, if one dose of Rescue Remedy is given orally
    to the patient, 150 ml of blood loss is minimised. Also the
    wound heals rapidly and the patient is transferred to the ward
    in two days and discharged early. Without Rescue Remedy,
    such conditions take 7-10 days for the patient to return home.
    Dr. Mathanagopal, M.B.B.S., D.A., Anaesthetist in Govt.
    Hospital, Palani in Tamil Nadu, reports:

    “Thank you for introducing flower remedies. One hour
    before giving anaesthesia for surgery patients, I give one pill of
    Rescue Remedy (chewable).

    Compared to other patients, Rescue Remedy given thus,
    saves 150 to 200ml of blood loss, reduces post-surgical pain,
    fever, oedema etc. Thus, there is less need for giving pain-killers
    and antibiotics.

    “In scorpion sting, snake-bite and other unknown poison
    bites where the patient is brought in critical condition, I give one
    pill orally; in addition, I dissolve five pills in half-an-ounce of
    plain water, soak gauze into the solution for local application.
    Moments later, pain, swelling etc., disappear magically and
    much to the surprise of my colleagues.”

    Sr. Claire, I.C.M., School of Deaf and Dumb, Chennai-6,
    a Christian missionary health worker (ph: 09443077935) was
    travelling in an omni bus from Chennai to Dindigul. To avoid
    a cyclist the driver applied sudden brake and the bus skidded
    to the extreme left side of the road and fell into a not so deep
    pit. Soon it was a scene of screaming and crying passengers
    with bleeding and pain. The driver was bleeding profusely from
    head and his head fell on steering wheel and became
    unconscious. Sr. Claire opened a phial of Rescue Remedy and
    started putting one pill into the mouth of all the injured. Soon
    the bleeding, crying etc. stopped. She put one pill into the
    mouth of the driver also. Bleeding from head had stopped
    completely. He regained consciousness, got up and started
    walking as if nothing had happened to him! All the passengers
    got down, pushed the bus to the centre of the road and
    continued the journey, what would otherwise mean arrival of an
    ambulance, hospitalisation of the injured, stranded passengers
    waiting for another bus etc.

    You are a trauma specialist with Rescue Remedy in
    your pocket!

    What would you get by learning and
    using these remedies?

    A Tamil saying is that what all we have so far learnt/studied
    is only the size of a handful of sand; what we are yet to learn
    is the size of our whole earth. Unfortunately, even out of the
    handful of what we have learnt, more than ninety-nine per cent
    is incomplete or incorrect. Supposing even a two per cent of
    what we have learnt/studied is correct, we would by now be
    living the life of a maharaja (emperor).

    Bach Remedies enable you know the meaning, value and
    significance of various things exactly and accurately. Precision
    is the culture of Bach Remedies. Thus, by taking suitable Bach
    Remedies all your difficulties dilute away and thus you are able
    to increase your income and lifestyle.

    To illustrate our claim that 99% of what all we have
    studied/learnt is wrong, let us go to the following few questions
    and learn how exactly Bach Remedies give the correct answers
    to them:

    1. What is the use of encyclopaedias?

    2. How does a medical doctor get Midas touch?

    3. What is the right and only solution to cure addictions?

    Use of Encyclopaedias:

    Almost all readers, even a college professor would say
    that an encyclopaedia is a reference book to know all about a
    particular thing. That use is a low-key approach.

    The correct answer is something different. To prove this,
    let us quote some medical cases here:

    A middle-aged scottish man with pain in his left knee for
    two years came to me for treatment after trying with various
    specialists in vain. After listening to his complaints and looking

    at him I directed him to a dentist to remove any decayed tooth
    because that particular knee pain of his was due to that.
    He insisted that I should see the X-ray and clinical
    laboratory test reports taken on the advice of chief ortho
    doctors in the city. I refused and so he went away. He
    continued with drugs, physiotherapy etc. Six months after this,
    he got retirement and went to his motherland Canada. There
    he consulted his family physician for his knee pain. That doctor
    too, after looking at him, directed him to a dentist.

    When he went to the dentist, after examining the teeth the
    latter asked him whether he had been having knee pain for two
    years. Telling that the knee pain was due to a decayed tooth,
    he removed it; the very next day his knee pain vanished

    Now the question is why it was possible for the author
    of this book as well as the Canadian doctor to diagnose that the
    decayed tooth was the cause for his knee pain, while the
    doctors in Chennai were giving drugs, recommending
    physiotherapy etc. The answer is very simple. That Canadian
    doctor and I have studied British Encyclopaedia of Medical
    Practice (12 volumes) as a textbook. So, there is no chance
    of our making wrong diagnosis; also no need to send a difficult
    case to a so-called senior physician etc.

    How did the author of this book come to know the exact
    use of encyclopaedias?

    The Bach Remedy called Cerato enabled the author to
    know and learn the correct use of encyclopaedias.

    From the Bach Remedy Cerato we learn that

    Textbook is for passing an
    examination to get a degree
    or diploma.

    Encyclopaedia is the
    textbook for professionals to
    become a wizard in their
    respective field.

    Real causes of diseases/sufferings of men is known by
    the use of Bach Flower Remedies alone; nowhere else do
    we get correct answers for our problems and sufferings.

    Let us examine one of the social evils viz., ‘addiction’ and
    learn as to how Bach Remedies reveal the only right solution:
    Walnut is the name of one of the thirty-eight Bach
    Remedies and it is for all types of addictions and bad habits i.
    e., where the patient is doing one and the same bad thing
    repeatedly over and over again with his fingers/hands—be
    it chain smoking, drinking alcohol daily, tobacco chewing, taking
    several cups of coffee/tea, thumb-chewing in children or nail
    biting in elders.

    Wherever we prescribed Walnut for addictions the addicts
    not only gave up the habit; but on continuing the remedy these
    persons started learning instrumental music or painting and soon
    started performing in stages earning Rs. 500 to 1000 for each
    two-hour performance as compared to their earlier income of
    mere 5-7 thousand rupees that too working as an office staff for
    8 hours x 30 days.

    The question now before us is, “What has ‘playing
    instrumental music or painting’ to do with addiction?”
    In both cases, the person does one and the same thing
    repeatedly over and over again with rhythmical movement
    of his fingers/hand.

    Smoking cigarettes or nailbiting
    or taking ganja is the
    ‘NEGATIVE’ aspect of the
    Bach Remedy Walnut.

    Playing instrumental music or
    painting is the ‘POSITIVE’
    aspect of the same remedy.

    From the above we infer that mighty Nature tells all
    addicts: “I sent you on earth to learn and play instrumental
    music (or painting) and earn 1-2 thousands daily. But you did
    the mistake of studying science or accountancy to earn a mere
    few thousand rupees once a month only. To remind you of
    your job on earth I made you an addict. At least now realise
    your mistake, take Walnut and start learning instrumental music
    and earn a few thousand rupees for each 2-3 hour

    Addiction is not a punishment given by Nature but a
    chiding only.

    Thus, Bach Remedies DO NOT ‘TREAT’ OR ‘CURE’
    human beings but change them from ‘negative’ to ‘positive’
    types. On one hand Walnut enables addicts completely give up
    the bad habit; on the other, it simultaneously enables them to
    learn and master instrumental music/painting, irrespective of
    their age.

    We, therefore, call Sitar Ravishankar of North India and
    Veena Gayathri of Tamil Nadu as “POSITIVE Walnut-type
    persons.” Had the parents of these instrumentalists done the
    mistake of discouraging their learning instrumental music and
    insisted on their becoming a graduate, they would have ended
    up as a diploma/degree holder and working in an office for a
    mere 5-10 thousand rupees per month and later becoming the
    worst addicts to alcohol, drugs etc.

    From the above, we get the lesson (by the study of Bach
    Remedies) that in de-addiction centres we must employ
    teachers of instrumental music/painting and this alone is the only
    and correct solution to cure addictions. Will the concerned
    authorities wake up at least now?

    Now to another Bach remedy called Cherry Plum:
    This remedy is to be prescribed for the following

    (i) mind giving way; or fear of loss or reason;

    (ii) irresistible temptation;

    (iii) suicidal disposition (mind giving way).

    ‘Uncontrollable’ anger, unbearable thirst, insatiable
    appetite, cannot wait for food when hungry.

    A diabetic patient with Cherry Plum negative mentality
    cannot avoid sweets on seeing it when served in dinner parties.
    Suicidal disposition: “Person commits suicide because of
    unbearable chronic abdominal pain that resisted treatment by
    the best doctors.” Cherry Plum, cures the underlying pathology
    and so the pain is cured completely and permanently. Not only
    colic. For that matter any disease that makes the sufferer cry or
    weep with pain.

    “Man commits suicide due to poverty.” This also we
    occasionally read in the dailies.

    Again in the case of suicidal disposition due to poverty,
    when Cherry Plum is prescribed it gives the victim sufficient
    mental balance to find ways and means of earning sufficient
    money; so the suicidal disposition disappears.

    Persons who weep with ‘unbearable’ pain in body
    (whatever may be the name of his disease).

    Cherry Plum is not a painkiller but it cures the underlying
    pathology and so the pain stops.

    The best place to illustrate the use of Cherry Plum is the
    labour ward in any maternity hospital.

    (Bach Remedies are thirty-eight in all. Every person would
    be of one remedy-type only at a given time. Thus, roughly three
    out of every hundred persons would be Cherry Plum type). Go
    and stand in the veranda of any labour ward at midnight and
    you would be hearing the shouting, crying or weeping of three
    out of every one hundred expectant mothers. The child wants
    to come out but the mouth of the uterus does not dilate. Thus,
    it causes “unbearable” pain making the mother cry. We gave
    Cherry Plum at this time to these ladies (say, 1-3 doses every
    5-15 minutes). Soon they had normal delivery. At this point
    please do not note that Cherry Plum is for “easy delivery.” Not
    only painful delivery but in all diseases or problems in life where
    the affected person cries/weeps with ‘unbearable’ pain (or
    resorts to suicide) Cherry Plum is to be prescribed and it cures
    him. In the case of life problems making them resort to suicide,
    the remedy enables them to automatically find ways and means
    to solve their problems.

    I called aside the above ladies to whom Cherry Plum was
    prescribed for ‘unbearable pain’ and advised them to take daily
    one dose of the same remedy. They said, “Sir, we have
    delivered the baby. Why more medicine?” I advised them that
    this remedy would enable them to know as to why they got
    such ‘unbearable’ labor pain for hours together and also to
    prevent all future sufferings (be it bodily diseases or problems
    in life) making them weep or cry. They started taking the
    remedy. After a few weeks it was noticed that all of them
    started learning vocal music (irrespective of their age) and after
    a year or so were performing in music clubs and stages and
    their income multiplied several-folds.

    [When his reputation is at stake a person commits suicide. This
    symptom is covered by another Bach remedy viz., Agrimony.]

    Mighty Nature indirectly tells the above ladies: “I sent
    you on earth to learn vocal music and earn several thousand
    rupees. But you did the mistake of choosing an unsuitable
    profession to earn a few thousand rupees once a month. To
    remind you of your work on earth, I gave you that unbearable
    labor pain. At least now realise your mistake, start taking the
    Bach Remedy Cherry Plum which not only reduces your
    prolonged labor pain, but also simultaneously enables you learn
    vocal music and earn several-fold of your previous monthly

    The question now before us is, “What is the connection
    between ‘vocal’ music and ‘crying with pain or problem in life?”
    In both instances, ‘voice’ is used continuously in high pitch.
    From the Bach Remedy CHERRY PLUM, we learn that
    those weeping/shedding tears should start learning vocal

    ‘Singing’ is the
    of the remedy.

    We call ‘weeping with pain or
    resorting to suicide due to problem
    in life’ as ‘NEGATIVE ASPECT’
    of Cherry Plum.

    [Tongue/throat is used to make noise/voice as well as to taste delicious
    food. Therefore, another use of the Bach Remedy Cherry Plum is “irresistible
    temptation” “unable to observe food restrictions.”]

    We may, thus, call Michael Jackson or Madonna of the West
    and M. S. Subbalaxmi, Sudha Raghunathan, Sowmya of South
    India and Latha Mangeshkar of North India as positive Cherry
    Plum type personalities. Suppose, parents of these vocalists had
    insisted on Bank job, academic education etc., by now they would
    have developed problems in life or diseases making them weep
    or cry with pain.

    Let us now look at some more Cherry Plum negative type
    persons (who too would become No.1 singers after a course of
    Cherry Plum).

    1. Those taking more soft drinks every time they go in
    the hot sun; (‘unbearable’ thirst)

    2. Those short-tempered persons who shout and scream
    in anger. ‘Uncontrollable’ thirst, ‘uncontrollable’ anger,
    appetite etc. are the symptoms of Cherry Plum.

    3. Those who cannot observe diet restrictions.
    “Irresistible temptation.’’

    4. Those resorting to suicide to put an end to their pain
    in abdomen when the best doctors failed to cure them
    with their medicines.

    5. Persons committing suicide due to poverty.

    6. Parents beating their children in anger.

    7. Teachers and masters beating their students in anger
    because the latter is not learning in spite of repeated

    By now, the reader would have learnt what we mean by
    ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ types. We find that there are thirtyeight
    types of persons only in the world. If a person is positive,
    he need not take any Bach remedy. Negative type may take his
    respective remedy to become positive. This is the secret of
    Bach remedies and that is why it is able to cure gently, quickly
    and permanently that too without any side effects.


    [In de-addiction centres one and the same drug is given to
    all alcoholics. Persons thus treated, of course, give up taking
    alcohol and does not take even if it is given to him. But, because
    of the side effects, he becomes dull, stupid, lazy, lethargic etc.,
    and is unable to concentrate in discharging his official duties and
    responsibilities at home. Alas! After six months, when the drug
    goes out of his body, he starts consuming double the quantity of
    what he had been taking originally. It is a stereotyped method
    where humans are treated like animals and thus the patients
    suffer from side effects.]

    This is because one and the same remedy is given to all
    addicts (as done in veterinary practice) for alcoholism.
    In Bach Remedies system we do not treat ‘addiction’
    but we treat ‘personalities’ of the addicts. Hence no side
    effects. We individualise the victims.

    Let us examine a few alcoholics. The type of classifications
    on the next page is not anybody’s theory but they have been
    in existence from time immemorial.

    Name of the Symptom of the victim (addict)
    Bach Remedy

    Here, it is a matter of sheer habit. The question of
    giving up alcohol/tobacco does not arise because
    the victim does not even think of making an
    attempt to give up this habit. For once, if he misses
    his drink, his hand would shake and
    subsequently suffer from withdrawal symptoms.

    This is a clear case of addiction indeed.

    At night he firmly takes a vow that from the
    next day he won’t take alcohol and promises
    his wife too. But the very next day the same
    old story is repeated. This is not addiction but
    unsteadiness of mind (Irresolution).

    Does not take alcohol for 'kick' as the first said
    Walnut-type persons. But to forget his worries
    at home when some dishonourable events has
    happened like the elopement of his daughter,
    his wife living with another person etc. One day
    he suddenly starts drinking to ventilate his
    suppressed emotions and grief.
    Drinks not necessarily for ‘kick’ like the first
    said Walnut-type. He wants to put up a show
    before others that he does drink—The status
    monger. Therefore drinks imported stuff like
    scotch etc. This would be further evidenced by
    the fact that in his house we find in the hall,
    empty biscuit brandy bottles neatly kept in a
    He decides to give up the habit and has
    completely stopped it. But when he happens to
    see the bottle or someone smoking, he would
    take a peg (or a cigarette) and no more after that,
    till such time he again sees the bottle/cigarette
    packet. A case of irresistible temptation indeed.
    (Mind giving way.)
    Name of the Mind symptom of the person taking alcohol
    Bach Remedy

    This type persons are not regular drinkers. They
    drink to 'enjoy' life or to celebrate once a while,
    like for example, on the first of every month when
    they get their monthly salary or, on the day of
    receiving yearly bonus; or, on the date of getting
    arrears etc., and on occasions like promotion,
    transfer, wedding party etc. (celebration!)
    Enjoyment of life!

    These types of persons are neither ‘addicts’ nor
    are they fond of the 'kick' feeling. They are tonic
    mongers or strength-maniacs. Drinks 'wine' or
    ‘brandy’ only, because these two are said to be
    good for health. (It is said that one drop of wine
    is equal to one drop of blood!) They are over
    conscious of nutrition, vim, vigour & vitality.
    They have forgotten that ‘health is wealth’ and
    wrongly think that ‘strength is wealth.’

    Here he is a miser. He does not drink by buying
    from the liquor shop. But when available ‘free of
    cost’ such as in parties etc., even though he does
    not know how to drink, he gulps down as much
    as possible and comes home and vomits all. (The
    regular drinker knows his limit and does not
    overdose himself.) Persons like waiters working
    in Army Officers’ Mess and top-executives
    attending parties quite often resort to this type of


    Here is the nervous fellow who has the

    fear-complex, drinks to become bold. These
    types take liquor just before encountering his

    Thus, we call Bach Remedies as human medicine because
    every victim/patient is individualised.

    Again, let us reiterate, here we are not doing any psychoanalysis
    of addicts, but in the above table, we have just and only
    given the classification as it exists and found by every one of
    us, from time immemorial.

    a flower, but it is merely water collected from natural
    springs found among hard rocks.

    (2) Rescue Remedy at Sl. No. 39 is a mixture of the five
    remedies at serial Nos. 6, 9, 18, 26 and 29.

    * There are just thirty-nine remedies only.
    * No elaborate head racking study. It is very simple and
