Pica disorder is considered to be an inappropriate behavior characterized by an appetite pattern and craving for non - nutritive substances. Pica usually does not exhibit life - threatening situations, but at times it can create severe complications due to this psychogenic behavior of an individual. Clinical presentation of pica is highly variable and can be associated with the specific characteristics of the resulting medical conditions and the ingested substances. Homoeopathic medicine for pica offer a natural solution for cravings and mild to moderate cases of pica. Herein I conducted a study to identify the efficacy of Homoeopathy in treatment of Pica by using Boericke clinical Repertory. For the purpose of this study, I excluded cases which is complicated with other systematic disease. There are total 50 Patients participated in the study. Out of 50 Cases, 12 were very much improved, 20 were much improved, 10 minimally improved, in 6 patients there was no change from baseline and 2 patients was minimally worse.
