In 1912 Edward Bach qualified as a medical doctor and embarked upon a career which not only had a profound effect on medical science, but brought to ordinary people the world over, a simple, safe and effective system of healing. Dr. Bach made a detailed study of bacteriology, immunology and homeopathy and found a clear connection between chronic disease and negative mental attitudes. It was the relationship between mind and body which formed the basis of his further research and as he became increasingly convinced that emotional harmony was the key to good health, he was determined to find a simple, non-invasive and harmless method of healing which could be used safely by everyone. The Medical Discoveries of Edward Bach tells how Dr. Bach's work developed, from his childhood hopes and dreams of a healthy society, to the discovery of a complete system of 38 natural remedies which address all aspects of human nature, emotional outlook and personality. Edward Bach was an eminent physician whose remarkable contribution to medicine, healing and humanity has yet to be fully realised.

This book is titled Live Writing, and you may be wondering what I mean by that. Most of us have read (and written!) the opposite kind of writing-dull, drab language that sounds about as interesting as a city phone book. By "live writing" I mean the kind of writing that has a current running through it-energy, electricity, juice. When we read "live writing", the words seem to lift off the page and burrow deep inside us.
