The first contemporary study of Bach's techniques by one of Europe's leading practitioners.More than 50 years ago, English physician Dr. Edward Bach grew disenchanted with orthodox medicine as he came to understand that many physical complaints have a strong psychosomatic element. Over many years of study, he discovered 38 flower remedies that act on the disharmony within the patient and pave the way toward recovery. Bach Flower Therapy describes the remedies in such a way that patients taking them will gain deeper insight into the remedies underlying psychological concepts, thereby enhancing the potential for self-healing. Intended for practitioners and lay readers alike, the book includes lists of symptoms to facilitate diagnosis.

A practical and reliable diagnostic tool that has emerged over the past twenty-five years, kinesiology is the study of the mechanics of bodily motion, especially muscle movements and their relationship to our body systems. Viewing the body as a balanced triad of structure, chemistry, and mentality, applied kinesiology gauges muscle response to pinpoint underlying physical problems. Within 30 minutes, a competent kinesiologist can evaluate bodily functions and provide a readout on the workings of the glands, organs, lymphatic system, circulatory and nervous systems, circulation, and muscle-bone structure. Applied Kinesiology demonstrates how this technique can be of practical use for everyone.
