Lichen Planus Sclerosus Natural Ayurvedic Treatments

Author : Gurnam Saini  

Natural Alternative Remedies for Lichen Sclerosus

Lichen Sclerosus is a chronic skin condition that usually affects the perianal and genital regions. This condition is more common in the post-menopausal women. It results in the development of small, white, shiny, and smooth spots on the affected parts of the skin. The lesions often grow to form bigger plaques, which later become thin or crinkled. It may also weaken the skin structure resulting in easy tears.


Most women also develop bright red, and purple bruises along with severe itching, blisters, and bleeding at the affected site. Patients suffering from these symptoms can follow lichen sclerosus alternative treatment recommended by Ayurveda principles.  [1]


The use of Ayurvedic Indian herbs and following the diet are advisable for the prevention as well as lichen planus and sclerosus natural treatment. [2]



Symptoms of Lichen Sclerosusn and Planus


Lichen sclerosus is not contagious and does not spread from one person to another. It has a tendency to affect multiple parts of the skin. The lesions of lichen planus and lichen sclerosus on the skin of the upper body and arms usually go away without any active treatment.


However, the lesions on the genitals need to be treated with oral and topical medications to prevent worsening or further damage to the skin tissues. A natural treatment of prurigo nodularis using ayurvedic herbs and following an ayurvedic diet can help to control these symptoms and protect the health and functions of the skin.



Ayurveda can offers lichen sclerosus herbal treatment to control worsening of the lesions and restores the natural health of the skin. The treatment also includes the use of herbs and various detoxes.


Some other symptoms patients may experience at the site of lesions include redness, burning, and a wheel formation indicating an allergy-like reaction due to the involvement of the immune system. The general signs caused due to lichen sclerosus and lichen planus include flu-like symptoms such as weakness, fever, body ache, and headache.


Patients who suffer from these symptoms can seek lichen planus natural treatment based on the concepts of Ayurveda Doshas. The treatment is aimed at restoring the normal functions of the immune to avoid the development or worsening of the conditions.


Lichen Planopilaris Natural Treatment



Ayurveda can also offers a vulvar lichen sclerosus treatment using natural Indian herbs that possess medicinal properties, which can help to control inflammation and damage to the skin tissues caused due to these conditions.


The lichen sclerosus diet as recommended by Ayurveda can help patients to derive results. The diet includes foods that support the healthy immune system functions thus inhibiting the symptoms caused due to its hypersensitive response. Using ayurvedic herbs in combination with a balanced diet can help patients to achieve the oral lichen planus treatment naturally.


Lichen Sclerosus Natural Remedies


Here are a few lichen sclerosus natural remedies that can produce a anti-pruritic, anti-inflammatory and immune system regulatory effect, which can help you to obtain relief from the symptoms of these conditions.


Neem (Azadirachta indica): Itching and burning caused due to vulvar dermatitis can be managed effectively by using Neem that produces an anti-pruritic and blood cleansing effect. It can also help to prevent the risk of infections at the affected site by producing antibacterial and antifungal actions. [3]


Manjistha (Rubia cordifolia): An ayurvedic doctor may advise patients to use Manjistha for lichen sclerosus, planopilaris and planus. The anti-inflammatory and immune system-boosting effects of this herb can minimize damage to the skin. [4]


Giloy (Tinospora cordifolia): Giloy can be used to manage the complications of lichen planus and lichen sclerosus such as vulvar eczema. It can reduce itching and ease the discomfort associated with the illnesses. [5]


Karanj (Pongamia pinnata): An ayurvedic naturopath may recommend the use of Karanj to reduce the risk of skin cancer. The anti-neoplastic activity of this herb may protect the skin against cancerous changes. [6]


Bakuchi (Posralea corylifolia): Ayurvedic treatments using Bakuchi can support the health of the skin with its anti-inflammatory properties [7]. It can also help to maintain the balance of hormones thus preventing the symptoms at the postmenopausal period.


Amala (Phyllanthus emblica): Amalaki can produce a natural antioxidant effect and  can prevent damage to the skin due to free radicals. It can also re-educate the immune cells and prevent the abnormal reaction responsible for triggering the symptoms of lichen planus and lichen sclerosus. [8]


Haridra (Turmeric): Haridra can help to relieve the symptoms of vulvar eczema by producing anti-pruritis, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects. [9]

  • I was suffering from headaches for the past 5-6 years which lasted more than a day. Sometimes it was so severe that I had nausea and vomiting. Tried a lot of medications but they did not help. Then I thought of trying Ayurveda as my last remedy. 2 months with Gurnam Saini and I have no headaches. My sleep has also improved. I’m still continuing to improve my overall health as the medicine seems to work for me. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to improve their overall health and well being.

  • I strongly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic to anyone who is looking into natural and organic health benefits. I consulted Ayurvedic Doctor Dr Gurnam Saini for hair loss treatment, as I had almost tried everything from expensive hair products to medicine for years and was highly disappointed. Dr Saini was very detailed and made me understand how lot of factors including my digestive fire, my sleep, my lifestyle etc. were directly impacting my hair health. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and his passion about getting me to understand the root cause. I clearly figured out how I was not in sync with my body. I am actually surprised that these organic ayurvedic medicines are very effective, as that was not my immediate expectation and I thought it will be a very lengthy process, but I was ready to give it a go! He also gave a me a specific ayurvedic organic hair oil to put on my scalp. It's been 3 months and I have almost completely stopped loosing hair and gaining more volume in my hair. I also found that taking shirodhara and nasya and head massage ayurvedic therapies of Dr Saini's recommendation was also important part of the treatment. I now feel more connected to my body and definitely my hair growth is visible to me and my family. Thank you Dr Gurnam Saini and Dr Pooja Saini (for those amazing therapies). You guys are working for a great cause.

  • Can't recommend highly enough. After 18 months of working with other health professionals (including doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors and osteopaths), I was finally able to heal my body with simple dietary and lifestyle changes recommended by Dr Saini. Ayurvedic approach tackles not only physical health but also emotional and spiritual, and the herbs and treatments are also tailored to your particular dosha (body type). After working with Dr Saini for a few months I did the Panchkarma cleanse, which I was very skeptical about, but I was amazed that this fixed my gut problems. The treatments during Panchkarma were actually quite amazing - Pooja is a miracle worker and so lovely. Dr Saini's knowledge and client base is very highly regarded in the industry, with other well-known Ayurvedic resorts using this clinic when in Melbourne. Highly recommend.

  • I saw Dr Saini in July 2019 for “acid reflux” after suffering of months. I tried different medicines but didn’t work. There was a time I started believing that there was no permanent cure to this disease. Dr Saini is an authentic Ayurvedic doctor. He can do miracles for you. I honestly believe he’s a blessing for the city of Melbourne otherwise it would have been very hard to physically see an Ayurvedic doctor like him. My heart burn got worst with the time & became just unbearable. I couldn’t eat anything or sleep at all. Finally, I found him via google and peoples reviews convinced me to give him a call. He’s an angel & listens everything. He gave me a three month’s plan which I completed happily. But unbelievably my acid reflux reduced 80% within three days & completely gone in five days & it never came back since then. I’m so happy & enjoying my life like I used to. God bless Dr Saini & God bless those who wrote reviews which convinced me to give him a call first time.
