Remedies easy discouragement, despondency, weakness after illness, and lack of interest in food. Gentian helps restore perseverance and appetite for animals that seem to have given up and stop eating, especially when ill or following loss of owner or companionship. For animals not praised or encouraged by their handlers during training, performances or competition. Cats that suffer stress when in catteries refuse to eat at times, Dogs that give up when sick.
Gentian is often used with Gorse, which reinforces its tonic effects, and with Chestnut Bud when animals become discouraged during training.
Human Indication: For those who are easily discouraged. They may be progressing well in illness or in the affairs of their daily life, but any small delay or hindrance to progress causes doubt and soon disheartens them. The positive potential of Gentian is the realization that there is no such thing as failure when one is doing ones best, no matter what the results. No obstacle seems too great, and no task too daunting to undertake. There is a conviction that any difficulties will be overcome in the end.
“…I become discouraged with small setbacks”
“…I am easily disheartened when faced with difficulties.”
“…I am often skeptical and pessimistic”
