Edward Bach was born in Mosely, near Birmingham, in 1886 and trained as a doctor in London. For several years he investigated the role of bacteriology in chronic disease. His researches led him to recognise clear personality types that related to various patterns of ill health, regardless of the physical symptoms being presented by the patient. Working with vaccine therapy and later homeopathic remedies he moved towards the discovery of flower remedies.
