I might have understood a fine thing about healing with Bach remedies from Prof. Vishton in the series "Scientific Secrets for a Powerful Memory".
The processing of short term memory into long-term memory happens in the Hippocampus which is a part of the Limbic system - the seat of emotion. No wonder so many stressed dogs, esp after accidents and the development of disease (later effects of distemper), grow forgetful even of family and grow dependent on habit and routine to stay alive.
This must be the best part of Bach remedies - that we can help them reencode painful and negative memories that lead to miasmic disease into mild and less disruptive forms. What a fabulous tool in our hands to change an essential brain structure for the better! More later - I'm too sleepy now to recall what I was trying to say.;)
