Lichen sclerosus remedies current electricity examples


Natural treatment of Lichen Sclerosus involves a combination of dietary changes, home remedies and essential oils. Treatments like Apple Cider Vinegar can help heal the condition, while dietary changes like avoiding artificial sweeteners can help prevent future occurrences of LS. What is Lichen Sclerosus

While a somewhat uncommon disorder, lichen sclerosus is a skin condition that affects individuals, particularly women, worldwide. The condition is typically characterized by patchy, white skin that appears thinner than normal. Lichen sclerosus can affect any part of the body, but it most often involves the genital and anal areas.

While several common symptoms have been identified in recent years, lichen sclerosus may present indirect or even unapparent symptoms. As such, it is often difficult to diagnose and is even often misdiagnosed. When symptoms do occur, the most common symptoms include severe itching, discomfort particularly when the condition is located in the genital or anal region, smooth white spots on the skin, blotchy or wrinkled patches, easy bruising and tearing, bleeding, blistering, ulcerations and pain during intercourse. It is important for an individual to seek treatment if she feels she may have symptoms similar to that of the condition or if she has previously been diagnosed with the condition.

Lichen sclerosis is often a pervasive condition that progresses and can lead to further complications if not treated. Persistent or recurrent lichen sclerosis in a particular location may increase an individual’s risk of skin cancer. The condition is also extremely painful for women. It often causes intense itching and scarring and can even narrow the opening of the vagina. The condition may involve such severe blistering that even the slightest pressure is unbearable. Treatment is crucial for preventing these issues. Home Remedies For Lichen Sclerosus

Effectively treating Lichen Sclerosus often requires a combination of treatments. At any rate, treatment is possible and using home remedies often offers relief and healing. Natural options including apple cider vinegar, calendula oil and castor oil relieve soreness, redness and discomfort. Lavender oil, evening primrose oil and essiac tea also treat the condition. Apple Cider Vinegar

Neem Oil, a plant which comes from the Indian subcontinent and is made by pressing fruits and seeds into an oil, helps to heal the condition and prevent further progression of LS. Neem Oil can be mixed with Green Tea extract and applied topically. Dietary Changes

Lichen Sclerosus is a pervasive condition that can progress and lead to further complications. Holistic treatments that focus on relieving inflammation and itching can play an important role in the healing process and can help prevent further progression of the disease.

The ACV completely stopped all symptoms for me, but I couldn’t take the ACV as it thinned my bones and bothered my joints. I found a interesting article at Pubmed indicating that acetic acid (ACV) stops MS symptoms, in relation to inhibiting a gene tranference. The following was a conclusion about LS being related to an oxidized state and recommending anti-oxidants – thus my remedy below.

The enzymatic antioxidant defence in LS was found to be significantly disturbed. CONCLUSIONS: This is the first study to demonstrate oxidative damage to lipids, DNA and proteins in LS, revealing a novel pathophysiological mechanism which may contribute to sclerosis, autoimmunity and carcinogenesis. Therapeutic strategies using antioxidants might be a useful new approach in the treatment of LS and could also help to prevent secondary malignancies.

For the Itch, I buy PURE Aloe Vera, mix with Lysine, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Cystene, Primerose oil (a few drops), Grapeseed extract and it usually keeps that BAD fire at bay without any flare ups and without the itch. I have had it for 11 years and only have (1) 1/4 inch scar. I do have some atrophy, but that came from attempting to use OTC steriod creme (absolute no-no). The scar over my pubic bone completely resolve using the ACV and above remedy. I thought I was totally resolved when I was taking the Vinegar daily, I had nothing, no symptoms and skin was regaining pink color. I stopped taking vinegar because it was demineralizing my bones – started noticing joint and back issues.

I regained minimal symptoms when stopped so continue to use above mixture with good results to stop the progression. I am going to start adding Hyaluronic acid and Niacinamide to the mixture. I am going to start taking niacinamide (small dose as it can be toxic if to much) I am hoping for a straight out healing!!! I am certain it is related to thyroid issues – that started when they put me on Premarin after hysterectomy – causing my thryroid to fail completely. I will post with results.

I want to know if Ted would answer a question. I have been taking Armour Thyroid for 11 years, did an Ultra sound found out the thyroid tissue has regenerated. Is there anyway… somehow I can get off of the medication? Have your ever heard of this?

I am a 67 year old male. I have had Lichens since about age 50. It started with extreme pain in the anal area. It was so severe I used a linament intended for livestock for relief. It was not diagnosed until 3 years ago, and my GP and Dermatologist seemed baffled about the whole thing. I don’t think I can describe how painful this condition has been, but at times it felt like I had a razor blade between my buttocks. I have been thru all the steroid creams etc. With no effect. About a year ago a friend recommended baking soda and it has been a lifesaver for me. I soak at least once a day in baking soda bath, and the pain relief has been miraculous. I can usually function for 8 to 10 hours without pain, however I am still plagued by itching. It is best described as like poison Ivy, the more you scratch the worse it gets. I believe that the itch is caused or aggravated by my coffee consumtion, and I am trying to cut back on that. I apply a cream after bathing (Nupercainal) and that usually gets me thru the day. The itch, which is driving me crazy, is usually at night and effects my sleep patterns. I only saw one reference to baking soda in earlier posts, but I can assure you that it has been extremely helpful to me in the relief of pain. I am hoping that eliminating coffee will relieve the itching and in the mean time , I use the same ointment for temporary relief, or just take another bath in very hot water with the baking soda.

After reading many website on Borax I found Dr. Walter Last’s website on ‘The Borax Conspiracy’ I followed his instructions to rid my LS condition of 3 years. I used 1/8 tsp Borax to 1 litre of distilled water for 10 days with a one day break after 5 days; then I mixed 1 heaping tsp Borax to 1 liter of water and took 1-2 tsp daily added to an additional glass of water. Also take 600-750mg Magnesium Citrate.

After 4 days of beginning this treatment, I noticed my energy increased and my knees, which have ‘osteoarthritis’, stopped aching. After 10 days, my LS inflammation began to subside, and the itching subdued greatly. For moisture I began to apply a combined solution made of 2 tbsp Castor Oil with a 5-6 drops of Lavendar Essential Oil and 3-4 drops of Lemon Grass Essential Oil and applied regularly on my labia/vulva area.

One month later, I feel much better and the healing is definitely happening! What a relief! I have stopped taking the ‘steroids’ prescribed by my Dermatologist, as it had only superficially contained the problem and the redness and itching hadn’t ever stopped for long. I have never had a yeast problem ever before in my life, I’m a vegetarian since my teens, and 65 years old now. (PS. I do have a hypo thyroid condition since mid 30yrs, which I now take 5-6 drops of Nascent Iodine a day with ’50mg Selenium’, and discontinued taking my ‘thyroxine’ medication.)
