When Dr Bach entrusted his work to Nora and Victor, and in so doing set up the Bach Centre. He instructed them to keep their lives simple and their work with the remedies simple as well. We don’t see it as our role to ‘prove’ that the remedies work. Instead we simply demonstrate how to use them and let people prove the effect on themselves.
Having said that, people have done studies on the remedies over the years. All of them are of limited value due to their small scale and, sometimes, significant methodological inconsistencies.
