Bach flower remedies
Bach flower remedies are named after British physician Edward Bach, who began using the practice in the 1930s. According to Bach’s central thesis, each bodily disease is based on an emotional imbalance. He saw the cause of this disorder as a conflict between the immortal soul and the personality. Healing is achieved through the harmonisation of the mind and soul.
How do Bach flowers work? The 38 Bach flowers correspond to all the possible negative emotional states, character traits or temperaments. Bach flowers can be used both for short- and long-term treatment. For example, if you are suffering from anxiety about a certain situation (e.g. exam anxiety), you can take the Bach flower mimulus until the feeling of anxiety is relieved. Bach flowers can help in all situations associated with strong emotional reactions:
- Anxieties and insecurities
- Stress and being overworked
- Loss of confidence and doubt
Anger and rage
Big changes in your life

Homoeopathy is based on the ideas of the German physician Samuel Hahnemann. He formulated the principle of similarity: «like cures like» (similia similibus curentur). Homeopathic remedies are chosen that would cause a healthy person to develop the same symptoms as someone with the illness. It is important to take the whole person into consideration. The remedies used are usually potentiated. The original substance is strongly diluted and energised at the same time.
When is homoeopathy used? The prerequisite for a homoeopathic treatment is always that the body and its cells can react to the stimulation of the remedy. Homoeopathy cannot restore destroyed cells or functional circuits. The areas of application are acute and above all chronic diseases, allergies, immune deficiencies and psychosomatic complaints.
We can also supply you with other homoeopathic remedies.
Consultations are by appointment only in our pharmacy’s consulting room.

With his «Biochemistry according to Schüssler», German physician Wilhelm Heinrich Schüssler (1821–1898) assumed that most diseases can be traced back to a mineral imbalance. A deficiency of one mineral affects the entire metabolism. The aim of the Schüssler salts is not, however, to replace the missing salts. Rather, the Schüssler salts provide a stimulus to the organism to absorb the missing minerals more effectively from the diet.
- Are you interested in knowing which disorders can be treated with Schüssler salts?

Spagyric essences and blends
Spagyric medicine is an ancient, holistic natural art of healing. This particular method for preparing remedies has its roots in the pre-Christian era. In spagyric medicine (the name comes from the Greek spao, to divide, and ageiro, to bind), the active ingredients from plants are first separated, then processed and finally reunited. When can spagyric medicine be used? Spagyric essences can be used to treat a variety of chronic and acute illnesses. They can be used both as a gentle stand-alone therapy, and as a complementary therapy, for example, alongside homeopathic or conventional treatment. Spagyric remedies strengthen the vitality of the organism and thereby promote the regeneration process. Your personal blend of spagyric essences – receive advice from our health coach. Thanks to his special training, he is able to create a personalised blend of quality essences tailored to your particular requirements.

We would be pleased to create an individual blend for you.
