- Rescue Remedy: In the early 1930s Dr Edward Bach, a successful and prominent British physician, realised that emotional and mental factors predisposed most of his patients to the physical ailments from which they suffered. Dr Bach felt moved to help his patients in a more profound way than was possible with the conventional treatments available to him at the time. Accordingly, he developed a healing system that could positively influence people on the subtle levels at which illnesses arise. Over a number of years he put his sensitivity and scientific training into action to collaborate with nature, and so developed his world-renowned thirty-eight Bach Flower Remedies. (Dr Bach selected five of these remedies to make up the well-known composite mix he called Rescue Remedy.)
