Bach Flower Therapy is a method to cure and prevent physical and/or emotional disorders by means of treating our emotional unbalances. Primary Health Care Centers are an excellent site to apply this therapy since their main working instrument is an interview focused on patients. Over a 14 month period, a group of patients received this type of treatment in a Primary Health Care Center in Catalonia from a nurse at the center prepared to apply this therapy. The objective of this study is to describe the patients who received it, the identified nursing diagnoses, and the evolution of the physical and/or emotional disorders after treatment has been applied. Patients were enrolled in this therapy Project based on a request by the medical/nursing consultants treating patients or by a patient's own request to participate. 119 persons, of whom 78.15% were female, received personalized therapy until their health condition improved; seven patients had been excluded from this therapy since they only received a rescue remedy. The time period between the first and the last visit varied according to each case and the individual's personality 405 visits took place, an average of 3.4 per patient. Improvement was measured on the EVA scale: 87.4% of those patients who received treatment reported good or very good evolution/results. Bach Therapy appears to be a good alternative to psycho-pharmaceuticals, shows itself to be very effective, with fewer secondary effects, and less than 2% of patients evidencing gastric intolerance to this preparation.
