Homeopathic Treatment and Cure for Lichen Planus


What Is Lichen Planus?

Lichen planus is an inflammatory skin condition that affects you when your own immune system happens to attack your skin cells or the mucous membranes. Some of the common symptoms of Lichen Planus are itchy skin, flat-topped purple or pink lesions appearing on the legs and arms, and non-infectious polygonal skin rash. If your mucous membranes are affected by Lichen Planus, then you may suffer from white patches and painful sores in the mouth or genitals. Lichen planus can affect various parts of your body, such as the scalp, nails, mouth, and genitals causing discomfort. Usually, the discomfort due to this inflammatory condition fades away on its own. However, it is always better to seek the right homeopathic treatment for Lichen Planus to alleviate your discomfort substantially.

Though Lichen planus appears on skin, mouth, genitals, nails, or scalp, its roots are found in the immune system, which is governed by some genetic factors. It means that the Lichen planus treatment needs to be aimed at correcting or improving the immune system. If this is done, the disease would be treated or cured for a long time. If the treatment is done superficially by applying cortisone or such immunosuppressive medicine, the disease will get elevated superficially only to resurface as soon as the effect of the medicine would be over.

Homeopathy treatment for Lichen Planus offers research-proven and highly effective treatment which has been scientifically documented. Contrary to the conventional treatment, which is governed by the use of cortisone, homeopathic treatment is amazingly curative, safe, and longer-lasting. At Life Force, we have researched Planus for over two decades.

Homeopathy Treatment for Lichen Planus:

The homeopathic treatment for Lichen Planus is based on the individual case study of the patient's disease, its cause, its spread, the area affected, the genetic tendency, mindset, etc. The treatment plans thus designed are addressed towards correcting the immune system, in turn treating Lichen Planus from within.

Dr Rajesh Shah, M.D. has researched Lichen Planus since 1985. His research-based molecules have the US, Europe patent granted as well as pending. His unique lichen planus homeopathy treatment protocol is made available to the patients of Lichen Planus the world over. At this point, there are patients from 180 countries under Dr Shah's care, which has been a world record. Lichen Planus cure is now possible.

The duration of treatment:

The total length of Homeopathy treatment for Lichen Planus varies from case to case, depending on the following factors:

  • Duration of Lichen Planus
  • Areas affected (Skin, mouth, genitals, nails, scalp)
  • The extent of spread (Only skin or only mouth or skin with the mouth, a combination of parts, etc)
  • Previous medication (Extensive use of oral cortisone may delay the course of treatment)
  • General health and associated diseases

One may expect a definite change in about three to five months, depending on the extent. The total length of medication may be anything between six months to two years or longer.

Why homeopathy for Lichen Planus?

The major benefits of homeopathy for Lichen Planus treatment could be summarized as under:

  • It offers excellent treatment which has a success rate of over 85%
  • It offers immuno-correction hence giving deep-level healing.
  • It offers a long-lasting cure instead of a temporary one.
  • It is absolutely harmless, safe, and free from any toxic effects.

Is the treatment (and its duration) different if Lichen Planus affects skin, mouth, genitals?

Well, the scope of improvement and the time required for the homeopathic treatment for Lichen Planus also depend on its location. Experience shows that LP on the skin is relatively easy to treat, as compared to one in the mouth or genitals. If one has it on the mouth, genitals, and skin, it is all the more difficult to treat. Similarly, it would take longer if it is multi-location. The medicines are relatively different for skin LP or one in the mouth, genitals, scalp, or nails.

  • Corticosteroid tablets
  • Immune suppressive medicines

5. Oral care:

Use non-irritating, mild toothpaste. Also, make sure you use a mouthwash that does not contain alcohol. Make efforts to maintain your mouth as clean as possible.

Side-effects of other treatments for Lichen Planus:

While Lichen Planus treatment with homeopathy is completely safe and harmless, other kinds of treatments may cause adverse effects. Some of them are as below.

  • Retinoids: The use of retinoids to treat Lichen Planus can cause dry skin, peeling and redness of the skin, and birth defects when it’s used by pregnant women.
  • Cyclosporine: It might offer some initial relief. Besides its serious adverse effects, Lichen Planus is most likely to return with more severity after the course of cyclosporine is complete.
