Successful treatment of ureteric calculi with constitutional homoeopathic medicine Lycopodium clavatum: A Case report
Treatment of ureteric calculi by Lycopodium clavatum
Formation of stone in the urinary tract, kidney, ureter and bladder is called as Urolithiasis. Formation of urinary stones is very common. About 5-15% population are affected with urinary stone, and, therefore, causes high morbidity in comparison to the above types of stone formation. Shock wave lithotripsy and ureteroscopy along with conservative treatments are the most common approaches for the treatment of calculi, although considered as expressive in one hand, and on the other hand, such interventions may lead to complications. Therefore, alternative medicines give a second thought for the treatment of urolithiasis because it avoids surgical interventions. Here we present a case study for the successful treatment of urolithiasis by a homoeopathic medicine Lycopodium clavatum in a 43 years old male.
A 43-year-old male patient with intense pain in the right loin for 5-6 days, increased frequency of urination, ineffectual urination, severe pain during urination, and finally with the pain score was 9, was considered for treatment in the present study. Based on his complete case history, Lycopodium clavatum at potencies of 0/1 to 0/6 was prescribed to him.
Correct homoeopathic organ specific or constitutional formulation(s) selected based on specific important symptoms can also be efficacious in diseases such as ureteric stone. Constitutional medicine Lycopodium clavatum is usually prescribed when the patient is with right side pain with ureteric stone and it is justified in the present case report. Randomized control trial is suggested to ascertain the results obtained in the present study i.e. successful treatment of urolithiasis with the constitutional homeopathic formulation Lycopodium clavatum.
