Gentian : properties and benefits
In 1931, Dr. Edward Bach discovers his eleventh plant, that is Gentian, which we can define with a key word as the “ disappointed ”, the discouraged, the dejected.This remedy fights the consequent reactive depression, a strong disappointment, the person here cannot find the positive side of the vision of reality, is born of pessimism, fearing that things are not going well and everything turns into disarming distrust; we begin to glimpse a bit of darkness, which can generate, in sick individuals, a delay in healing due to a lack of confidence.
There are cases of pupils who, after having had a scholastic failure, do not want to try again, are disenchanted, fall down at the first obstacle and tend to think negatively, already imagining the next failure.
Then in these cases Gentian brings a concrete benefit, such as confidence in tomorrow and in what will happen, making sure that the pupil or anyone else can recover a positive attitude, since the failure does not exist, the result does not matter, but the action that we perform, especially if we have done everything possible in our possession.
