Fear or over concern for welfare of others
Red Chestnut is for those who have selfless over-concern and fear or worry for the welfare of others, especially of family and close friends. They fear the worst for their loved ones: that a minor complaint will turn into something serious, that a child at play will fall, or a holiday plane will crash. They are also fretful and worry about other people's problems. It is often a temporary state among carers, nurses, councellors, etc.
The positive potential of Red Chestnut is the ability to care for others with compassion but without anxiety. Positive Red Chestnut people radiate thoughts of health and courage to those who need them and remain mentally and physically calm in emergencies. They are happy to give help when asked but hold back from forcing help on others.
Most dogs experience some anxiety where their owners or companions are away. Red Chestnut is the remedy for the dog that takes it to the extremes and will often show nervous, fearful behavior BEFORE you leave combined with an effort to go along or prevent you from leaving. They are the animals that cry in their crate and Red Chestnut along with Chicory is often recommended for separation anxiety
