Abstract: Homeopathy is a ‘Pseudo-science’ or ‘Fake’ according to skeptical thinking of other schools of medicine. To prove them wrong, a proposal to provide evidence based medicine case reports are the best thing. Hair pigmentation is one of the most distinctive characteristics of individuals, ranging from black to brown to blonde to red. Hair, on the other hand, is an excellent cosmetic tool and method of nonverbal communication. Hair colour and style can drastically alter a person's physical appearance and, as a result, his or her body image. Because greying hair is seen as a sign of ageing, premature greying of hair (PGH) can have a negative impact on an individual's self-esteem if the main reason is malabsorption resulting in nutritional deficiencies. Hereby discussing a case of 19 yr male teenage who was brought by his mother with the C/o premature grey hair associated with loose stools after eating. Wherein the most difficult challenge to the physician is to execute the case with her own observations and mother’s history as most of the teenagers don’t open up fully during a case taking. Based on homoeopathic individualisation Calcarea carbonica remedy was selected and administered and within a few weeks remarkable changes in the pigment of the hair as well as improvement in the absorption & assimilation of intestines were seen.
