Lycopodium is among the most commonly-used homeopathic medications prescribed for treating a variety of conditions, including male fertility problems like erectile dysfunction. ED or erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation make it difficult to sustain appropriate coitus and impair the overall health of sperm. Homeopathic remedies provide an effective and safe cure for such problems.
Lycopodium, or Lycopodium clavatum, is also called the Wolf's Foot because the plant, called Club Moss, has a root shaped like the foot of a wolf. Lycopodium clavatum has been used in various herbal preparations since the 19th century, and its application in homeopathy is widely acknowledged. Lycopodium clavatum owes it curative properties to a host of active ingredients. The main active ingredients are a series of rare alkaloids like lycopodine and lycodine. Lycopodium clavatum also contains flavonoids (plant-based phytochemicals) like luteoline that are an established source of nutrition for male and female sexual health.
Lycopodium as a Homeopathic Male Infertility Treatment
Lycopodium Clavatum is recommended for chronic impotency or for cases of total absence of erection, i.e. the most serious types of erectile dysfunctions. Similarly, patients who complain about extreme weakness when attempting coitus and those who have recurrent episodes of seminal or prostatic fluid emission when asleep or during an unaroused state are treated with Lycopodium.
Lycopodium is more likely to be prescribed when the patient suffering from erectile dysfunction shows psychological symptoms like anxiety. This underlines the fact that Lycopodium seeks to treat the internal, psychological causes of male impotency. This is quite appreciable considering that contemporary medicine too endorses the view that an unsettled mind is often the primary cause for male impotency.
In terms of physical symptoms, Lycopodium is more likely to be recommended for patients of ED or premature ejaculation when they indicate a history of digestive problems. This is suggestive of the mind-body link that homeopathy seeks to cure, since psychological unrest is linked with digestive disorders too. Such men are likely to complain about bloating and repeated abdominal discomfort without any defined pathology.
Lycopodium is also recommended to men suffering from problems of sexual organs that are often the cause of erectile dysfunction. This includes an enlarged prostate wherein the flow of urine is disturbed or the urine may have a distinct coloration, often shades or red. Lycopodium is also suggested for patients who are suffering from kidney stones, wherein the disturbed flow of urine is suspected as one of the underlying causes contributing to premature ejaculation. Lycopodium also has slight aphrodisiac properties, and it helps to initiate and sustain erection. This makes it particularly useful for men diagnosed with erectile dysfunction.
Lycopodium Usage Precautions
Please note that like most homeopathic compounds, Lycopodium presents negligible risks. However, it should be used only after consulting a homeopathic practitioner. For starters, Lycopodium is needed in different potencies for treating erectile dysfunction of varying degrees. Secondly, allergic reactions have been indicated when the powdered form of Lycopodium is used over an extended period without seeking medical consultation. This homeopathic compound can irritate the digestive and respiratory tract though it doesn’t present critical, adverse reactions.
