Just diagnosed with Lichen Planus?

Lichen PlanusYou must have never possibly heard the name 'Lichen Planus' until your doctor pronounced it. You might probably face difficulty spelling it correctly while making a search on the Internet! This is a common experience of all those who are just diagnosed with Lichen Planus and looking for treatment. About 1.5% of the world's population suffers from this uncommon and chronic skin disorder. Lichen Planus may affect skin, mouth (oral variety) or genitals.

Before we proceed with a brief note, which your local doctor may not have shared with you, let me tell you that Lichen Planus is neither serious nor a fatal disease. It is largely curable with homeopathic treatment. Lichen Planus cure is possible.

Quick orientation about long-term management of Lichen Planus:

No shortcut: Lichen Planus is a chronic disease, will require a long and planned treatment. There is no shortcut.

Say No to cortisone (steroids): Most commonly used medicines for Lichen Planus in all parts of the world are some or other form of cortisone or steroids, either oral and/or local cream and/or injectable. In our extensive experience, any use of steroids is found to be suppressive, temporary, and hence harmful. It makes your disease more difficult to heal. Our suggestion is to avoid steroids in any form.

Cortisone abuse: Please check our write-up on the abuse of cortisone (steroids).

Short-lasting: Please ask your doctor, who may prescribe you cortisone, if it is going to be a permanent or short-lived solution.

Do not fall into the vicious cycle: It may be noted that since our clinic deals with chronic Lichen Planus, almost all of our patients present to us with a history of steroid application of steroid intake, for many months or years. They learn it the hard way that steroids eventually help little. It is up to you to decide if or not you want to fall into the vicious cycle of frequent use of cortisone.

Homeopathy: Homeopathy offers promising results for all variants of Lichen Planus (Skin, oral, genital forms). Over 3000 cases treated and documented at Life Force is one of the largest ever collections of patients with this disease. We have a deeper insight into the treatment for Lichen Planus.

Let your doctor know: It is likely that your Family Physician may not suggest homeopathic treatment. This could be because of his/her ignorance about homeopathy or may be due to an unavailability of a qualified homeopathic doctor in your area. It is not somewhat strange that your doctor is not aware of the benefits of Homeopathy in the cases of Lichen Planus and other chronic diseases. That is because of a lack of training about Homeopathy in conventional medical school.s
