LYCOPODIUM CLAVATUM (Lyc.) – لائیکوپوڈیم لائکوپوڈیم

 

The central idea of Lycopodium is inflation, bloating in all levels. The patient is timid, with low self-confidence, showing cowardice when confronted with someone superior but at the same time, they are hard and dictatorial with the ones they consider inferior to them. On the physical level they often suffer from gastrointestinal complaints which are accompanied by distention of the abdomen.
