I had last seen the patient on 20/8/1995 and he was normotensive and had no complaints.

Lycopodium being the patients constitutional medicine, the BP came under control and he was free from any other medication. With allopathic treatment the patients diastolic BP was always above 100 mm of Hg.

The patients general particular was also amazed to see the patient not taking medicines and requested my patient go get the name of the Homoeopathic medicine that helped him.

This case classically illustrates the definition of "One sided disease" which Dr Hahnemann has written in aphorism No 173 of the 6th edition of Organon which quotes-"The only diseases that seem to have but few symptoms, and on that account to be less amenable to cure, are those which may be termed ONE-SIDED, because they display only one or two principal symptoms which obscure almost all the others. They belong chiefly to the class of Chronic diseases."
