You get that ‘now back to work’ , ‘business as usual’ feeling! There’s that welcome shift in outlook and perception. You are no longer consumed by despair and self defeating thoughts.
3. Sweet Chestnut has also proven helpful when a major illness leaves one in great despair and with the feeling that ‘Its all over for me’. The remedy helps quell fatalistic thoughts and instils hope, faith and optimism.

Sweet Chestnut helps by allowing us to get a grip on ourselves and transcend the predicament we are in, whenever we feel cornered and in total despair.

It instils in us a sense of optimism, faith and strength to help us through any ordeal, into a new dawn and a new beginning.
