Mr  Ramesh  aged 18 years  male,  consulted me  on 25th August, 2004    for  ulcerative  pain in abdomen.   He had  taken allopathic treatment  for a  period of 2 years  and  used  all pain-killers  and  antacid.

Pain continued.  Waited  for  48 hours.  on 29th August, 2004  gave  Lycopodium 1M  1 dose.  Pain  relieved the same day.  On 21st September, 2004  patient had improved. Appetite  improved. But   pain  relapsed but, with less  intensity.  I then increased the potency and gave  Lycopodium  10M one dose. No pain since then .  On  1st December, 2004 patient reported  improvement  and wait gain.  I then gave Lycopodium  CM  only one dose.  No aggravations.    Investigation were done.  Barium x-ray,  stool examination were within normal limits . Ulcer   totally  cured. The case was closed  successfully  without using  any  complementary drug.
