Aids in furthering mental attentiveness and moral growth in mental or behavioral disorders: Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, disruptive behavior disorder, factitious disorder and malingering (feigning of illness and procrastination for personal gain), antisocial personality disorder.



Tightening of the forehead and region between the eyes from worry and internal preoccupation; frontal headaches. Premature loss of clarity of eyesight; the nerves supplying the eyes are affected.
Lack of a calm and serene gaze.  Non-release of worry and preoccupation can result in chronic “indigestion” and affect the gastrointestinal tract (gastralgia, hypermotility, ulcers, pylorospasms, gastrointestinal pain, enterocolitis, irritable colon).   Excessive worrisome observation of symptoms, with likely worsening of symptoms therefrom.  Grinding of teeth from working through worrisome thought content.  Insomnia from failure to release disturbing thoughts.  Overactivity of the mind from engorgement of veins and congestion of blood to the head; hypertension. (Aesculus hippocastanum, the homeopathic medicine prepared from the ripe kernel, concerns with a symptom picture  of failure to focus the mind, irritability, excessive congestion of blood, and engorgement of veins.* In gemmotherapy, by utilization of the young shoots or buds of the plant, this remedy addresses hemorrhoids.)  It appears that in nervy, as opposed to plethoric patients, White Chestnut may cause a certain lightness or “emptiness” of the mind, and the remedy Clematis may be indicated in addition.
