Miasmatic analysis



All the miasms are equally present.



Based on history of renal stones and mental as well as physical generals, Lycopodium seems to be the remedy of choice as it covers all the miasms present in this case. Since Lycopodium is covering not only miasms but also mental as well as physical symptoms, 200 c is the potency of choice.





Lycopodium 200 one dose stat followed by placebo thrice daily.

Result and discussion

Complete cure with a single dose within 10 days! The mental and physical generals simultaneously matched are often the key to the case. Though, Pulsatilla and Calcarea carb were also indicated in this case, the history of renal calculi and desires for food worked as keynote and the total miasmatic coverage by a single remedy resulted is this perfect cure.

This is a true miracle only possible by Homoeopathy.

  • God must have also been with you and for grace of this woman.
    I appreciate your careful miasmatic analysis of this case, as I have indeed also found it to be the key to the simillimum, but I must say your case taking showed brilliance and the fruits of your labors and years of careful and serious study received the biggest reward!

    If patient was more feeble I wondered if you would have considered starting with a 30c? IT seems like a very high potency to have begun with, and I would not have thought to start so high, though I understand many old masters might have started high though obviously yielding brilliant results.

    You touch on why you selected 200c, but from Classical teaching I thought Hahnemann would start with split 30c?

    • Dear Marie,
      Thanks a lot for reading and appreciating my case presentation.
      Really, without God’s Grace, nothing is possible.
      Your precious comments and suggestions are the key to the successful presentations.
