Lycopodium clavatum (Club Moss,Lamb`s Tail or Wolf`s Claws) Family : Lycopodiaceae.

This plant is difficult to classify, and is something of a fern and a moss. It is the spores that are used in homeopathy. These spores are both inert and nontoxic. Once they have been crushed and made into a homeopathic medicine they have a powerful action on a number of body systems of both animals and people, including the lungs, liver, stomach, kidneys and bladder. Lycopodium is widely used as a constitutional remedy, often with great results, but it can also act beneficially in lower potency. For this reason it is useful in treating chronic illness. It is interesting that its action seems to be greater on the right side of the body, gradually spreading to the left.

Modalities : Symptoms appear to be worse on the right side with a time aggravation from 4-8 p.m. Worse for hot air and a warm room. Better from movement, from warm food or drink, getting cold and after midnight. In chronic disease Lycopodium may work more beneficially when it follows Sulphur, used before it as a clearing remedy.

continuation of Lycopodium.

Uses : sinuses--liver--lower bowel--kidneys/bladder.

1. For sinus problems with a profuse watery nasal discharge which can become thick with yellow or green crusts. Chronic cough starting with a niggling tickle and developing into a violent bout of coughing. There are often breathing difficulties which may lead to pneumonia.

2. Chronic liver conditions, possibly with jaundice and tenderness over the liver region.

3. Stomach involvement with indigestion and bloating, which may be accompanied by vomiting.

4. Lower bowel : Lyc. has a marked effect on the colon, with much rumbling and production of wind. There may be difficulty passing hard stools, followed by diarrhoea.

5. Kidneys and bladder : Retention of urine due to poor bladder action.The formation of kidney stones or gravel leading to renal colic.

Lycopodium seems to be particularly appropriate if 2 or more of the above symptoms are present. There may also be skin involvement with skin ulcers or chronic eczema apparent.
