White Chestnut is indicated for obsessive, worrying thoughts that seem impossible to control. Sufferers cannot let go of unhappy events or arguments and keep reliving them mentally.
Persistent, unwanted thoughts and mental arguments go round and round like a stuck record, leading to a troubled mind. It is difficult to concentrate during the day, or to sleep at night. The sufferer may therefore appear inattentive and may not answer when spoken to.
The positive potential of White Chestnut is peace of mind. The head is clear; thinking is under control and can be put to positive use in problem solving. Worry is replaced by trust in a positive outcome.
