The English bacteriologist Edward Bach apparently cured himself of his spleen cancer and devoted himself in the 1930s to intensive research of various blossoms. For him illness was nothing more than a tool used by our soul to get us back on the right path of truth and light, so that we do not have to suffer even greater harm. This is an interesting observation which is 100% in harmony with the thinking of other holistic oncologists.
As an adherent of pyschoanalysis he divided his blossoms into seven (architypical) areas:
* Excessive care
* Lack of interest in daily life
* Oversensitivity to influences and ideas
* Lack of courage
Bach’s blossoms are supposed to intervene energetically in our regulation system similar to Hahnemann’s therapy (see homeopathy). For Bach in a cancer therapy it is crucial that the Bach blossom therapy motivate the patient to confront himself and the psychological backgrounds of his cancer illness. In addition to aiding psychological crises, individual Bach blossoms also help as supporting treatment after operative interventions and in situations of particular stress.
Personal opinion: Bach blossoms belong in the hands of specialists (homeopaths).
