How strong is the placebo effect with Dr. Bach Flowers?
Clearly, anything can have a placebo effect.
However, positive effects, particularly in babies and small children, animals, and plants, speak for themselves—children, animals, and plants have no conscious expectations when taking the Flowers.
Of course, an open and positive embrace of Dr. Bach Flower Therapy is always beneficial during its course, but this is not necessary.
On the other hand, even a very optimistic attitude will not lead to improvements as long as an inappropriate combination of Flowers is chosen.
