Quercus robur

"For those who are struggling and fighting strongly to get well, or in connection with the affairs of their daily life. They will go on trying one thing after another, though their case may seem hopeless. They will fight on. They are discontented with themselves if an illness interferes with their duties or helping others. They are brave people, fighting against great difficulties, without loss of hope or effort."

Edward Bach, The Twelve Healers

This remedy is for people with a strong sense of duty who take on a lot of responsibility for others. They may be labeled workaholics because they have a hard time taking breaks and resting. They will plod away with consistency and endurance, not taking care of themselves, until their health breaks down.

Keywords: Strong work ethic with difficulty taking breaks; keeps trying even when it's time to stop; takes on excessive responsibility, eventually at the cost of one's health

Positive state: Healthy resilience, ability to balance work with rest and relaxation
