Lycopodium Clavatum

Symptoms of the homeopathic remedy Lycopodium Clavatum from the Guiding Symptoms of our Materia Medica by Constantine Hering, a ten volumes comprehensive record of confirmed symptoms, published in 1879….

     Club Moss. Lycopodiacea.

     A low creeping perennial, found in dry woods in all parts of the world, but is most frequent in Northern countries. The medicinal part is the powder, which is collected in Germany and other places in Europe. It is a fine, very mobile, pale yellowish dust, free from odor and taste. Seen through the microscope it appears round on one side, while the other forms a short three sided pyramid. When thrown into a flame it burns suddenly and with a hissing noise. A trituration of the powder precedes the preparation of the alcoholic tincture.
