Hi Karen, Thanks for your info. I'm post-men. My lichen schlerosis was extremely itchy, and developed to cracking and major discomfort. My nurse practitioner suggested I try estradiol/ testosterone internal/external cream, estradiol insert tablets, and progesterone, more D vitamin,& kelp or NOW vits. Thyroid Energy. A naturapath suggested, candidastat, omegas, zinc cream, & acidophilus pills. I try to keep up with it all. I find that sugar makes me start tingling, along with bread. I think it's related to allergies. Also try to eat lots of salads, greens, vegetables in general. Try not to eat proteins (meats/beans) and starches/grains at the same time - check out OHI raw diet for food combining and OHI exercises for lymphatics. All of this has helped - much more comfortable - no more itching and cracking. How do you prepare the comfrey spitz bath - do you boil the water first then let the comfrey leaves soak overnight, or do you boil the leaves in the water? How do you know if burdock in deep-dug or not. can you get this at herb shops? Thanks, J.

The Ob gyn diagnosed me with LS 2 and a half weeks ago and prescribed clobetesol twice a day for 3 weeks, take a week off, then come see her. I'm finishing the 3 weeks of clobetesol then I'm done with topical steroids. I'm not sure I should even be putting this stuff on for this long (it doesn't seem to be changing anything). Frankly I can't see using a pharmaceutical drug for the rest of my life an option. I also don't believe in the word "incurable." I absolutely intend to cure myself of LS.
Obviously something triggered the LS: bad diet, heavy metals or toxins, in our body, etc. I'm not sure what but symptoms are signs that something underneath needs to be fixed. Submerging the symptoms with steroids, I believe, can only do us harm in that it will cause our bodies to send us a stronger signal next time since we weren't listening the first time. I'm listening to this signal and am cleaning up everything that I can so that it will go away.
Here is what I have implemented so far:
-- I began to eat a primarily vegan and raw diet -- whenever possible fresh juices and soups (also no gluten, simple sugars or processed foods).
-- Incorporating flax and coconut oil, probiotics, garlic, fish oil tablets and a multitude of vitamin supplements and fulvic acid
-- drink green smoothies (with all the good stuff like spiralina and chlorella, etc), aloe vera juice, apple cider vinegar and water
-- Drink food grade hydrogen peroxide mixed with distilled water.
-- I got a colonic and next month I'm going to do a bowel and parasite cleanse. After that follows a kidney and liver cleanse. Possibly a candida cleanse.
--Topically putting on (in varying amounts) vitamin E, evening primrose and emu oil. Will try aloe.
-- Some of you have written about some herbal remedies too that look very interesting. I'll probably try those too.
--Affirmations and occasional self hypnosis, imagining myself already healed.
--I have a list of other things to try if this doesn't work.
Please cross your fingers. If this works, I'm taking all of you with me!
