Discover What Bach Flower Remedies Can Do For Back Pain

· April 6, 2017
Bach flower remedies don't have side effects and can help with back pain and emotion-related ailments. Learn about the benefits of this natural remedy and how to use it.

Bach flower remedies first and foremost treat emotional imbalances like anxiety, fear, stress, or sadness.

However, they have another function that isn’t as well known, and it’s their ability to relieve physical pain related to your emotions, which may affect you more often.

Here we’ll get to know this little-known power of Bach flower remedies so you can reduce your back pain naturally.

What are Bach flower remedies?

Bach flower remedies are 38 plant-based essences extracted in different ways depending on the type of plant. They help you balance your emotions naturally, without making you dependent on them or causing side effects.

They act gradually, giving your body the push it needs to overcome your feelings of fear, anxiety, resentment, longing, jealousy, guilt, or apathy by itself.

Anybody can take Bach flower remedies, even small children or people on medication, as they have no contraindications.

How do I take them?

It is highly recommended to see a professional therapist schooled in this remedy to personally evaluate your case and decide which flowers are good for your personality, the season of life you’re in, and the pain you’re experiencing.

Since there’s no risk if you’re wrong, however, you can take the flowers related to your pain and apply them yourself to the affected area.

When mixing several together, you can combine up to 7 essences at a time.

Use them like this:

  • Oral use: 4 drops, 4 times a day, under your tongue or mixed with water.
  • Topical use: 4 drops, twice a day, applied directly to the affected area or mixed with lotion.


Pain is your body’s way of warning you. You should see it as a help, not a punishment, to fix something that’s harming you before it becomes a more serious condition.

That’s why it’s a big mistake to just take medicine that will relive the pain without looking for its origin.

Even if there’s an injury or inflammation that’s causing your back pain, there’s always an emotional issue nearby that you should know and treat.

Your back is your support and protection in life. Based on that premise, each part of your back should be treated according to your emotions.
