The presence of these unwelcome thoughts does not give peace and prevents you from concentrating on work or on everyday life ". (1)

The types White Chestnut they cannot relax. Their heads are full of thoughts that run around without stopping and from which they are unable to defend themselves. Since these thoughts are repetitive, as happens to a jammed needle on a turntable, these people find no peace, often mulling over them without finding a solution. This causes headaches, impaired concentration, forehead tension, eye pain, inner restlessness and nervousness.
White Chestnut it is often used in conjunction with Pine, Gentian or Star of Bethlehem. If in the state White Chestnut attitudes are manifested Pine, thoughts are colored by feelings of guilt and self-reproach, so the person often thinks: «If only I had. ".
If the person broods often and his thoughts are accompanied by worries and fits of pessimism, in addition to Wbite Chestnut it is also used Gentian.
If a state takes over White Chestnut in combination with one Star of Bethlehem, a traumatizing inner experience that is now past returns to the conscience of the person, and unpleasant past events continually emerge, which oppress him again.

White Chestnut it eliminates the repetitive patterns of thought that, as claimed Bach, «They seem to recur in a continuous cycle, wearing out the mind. For example, in the event of an accident and the shock that this entails: Star of B. brings comfort and relieves trauma. But let's imagine that the sequence of events is repeated indefinitely in the mind, like a tape in a tape recorder: in this case we
generates a state White Chestnut, in which thoughts worry and persist or, if temporarily pushed out, return.
The question of conscience is complex but significant. In describing White Chestnut, Bach he speaks of "occasions when the interest of the moment is not strong enough to keep the mind occupied," which emphasizes, precisely, a mental problem, not an act of will. The air element predominates: for this reason it is in the leaves that the pattern is most marked. In this respect, an affinity with Clematis, which belongs to the same group as White Chestnut: Little interest in present circumstances. "What sometimes appears as a state Clematis, it could actually be a state White Chestnut the subject in question has the same absent air. The gesture as a whole may be different, but common elements are noted: the white flowers, the rough bark, the smooth leaves and other aspects. He is also part of this group Chestnut Bud: like the aforementioned remedies, it is associated with a lack of observation and interest in life. The boiling method, combined with the used part of the plant, however, allows a different aspect of the remedy to emerge.

He is not very communicative and tends not to tell his doubts. In his continuous solitary brooding it is evident that such uncertainties can go so far as to become the only "true friends" who will never leave alone. Scleranthus. Here then is that by accentuating the IMBALANCE, it will come to express itself as a real REVERBERATION, as happens in White Chestnut
The element of repetition common to the two remedies represents an attempt to arrive at a domain, albeit dysfunctional, of one's own ambiguous and uncertain experience.
The swing in Scleranthus of doubt, it becomes in White Chestnut an incessant coming and going of thoughts that can't stop.
REVERBERATION of White Chestnut it is precisely the constant recurrence of thoughts that cause a real "mental torture", Scleranthus it is a broken pendulum that swings wildly and is no longer able to strike the hours.
The remedies allow, then, to find a balance where the state of indecision is replaced by a thoughtful reflection on what to do with regard to the vicissitudes of life. At that wearying internal soliloquy the couple Scleranthus / White Chestnut. it provides the way out to become an expression of one's own thought and person in accordance with the individual life plan.
They give to whoever hires them the information of BALANCE and RHYTHMICITY.

Therapeutic strategies
It may happen that, after a short period of taking the remedy, the patient complains of having an empty head, unable to think. It is just an adjustment phase: she was so used to the previous condition that it now seems abnormal to live a mental respite. Reassure her, it will soon pass. The large "internal auditory" patrimony you have at your disposal must not be destroyed, but addressed in a more useful and practical way. Thought has its usefulness, but it is the will that must manage it. The impact with her is important: the voice must be welcoming and understanding, one must listen carefully to her reflections, helping her not to get trapped in sterile brooding. It would be very useful for her to recover the mind-body imbalance by giving space to physical activities such as dancing, Perfect Shape, trekking, martial arts. The meditation or relaxation exercises will be very difficult for you but they could help you (already deciding not to think is a thought!).
