Glossary On Lichen Planus Homeopathic Treatment

Homeopathy has proven efficacy in the treatment of lichen planus and this has been clearly demonstrated by clinical studies as well as cured cases. Recently, a research was conducted in 2008 at the Department of Oral Medicine, Tehran University of Medical Sciences to evaluate the effectiveness of Ignatia 30C (a homeopathic drug) in management of oral lichen planus (OLP). In this single-blind randomized control clinical trial, 30 consecutive patients with oral lesions consistent clinically and histologically with erosive and/or atrophic oral lichen planus were recruited. At the end of 4 months, the authors concluded that their results suggest that Ignatia has a beneficial effect in treatment of OLP in selected patients.

At Dr. Batra's, we have to our credit, the experience of treating more than 10,000 cases of lichen planus in our 35 years of practice. Today, we are in a position to offer significant relief to our patients and to relieve them from their suffering with the help of Homeopathy.

Homeopathic medicines target the altered immunity of the body and bring it back to normalcy over a period of time. The treatment helps in resolution of the existing lesions, reduces the itching and controls the further spread of the lesions. Unlike conventional treatment (which includes steroids), the homeopathic treatment tends to give lasting relief to the patients.

The response to treatment depends on various factors such as duration and severity of ailments, general health of the patient, and the extent of spread of the disease. Clinical experience suggests that Lichen planus of the skin alone is easier to treat as compared to one which is associated with oral and genital lesions.

Lastly, homeopathic medicines being completely safe and free from side-effects, can be taken by the patients without any worry of experiencing adverse reactions - they are also non habit-forming. Go ahead and experience the benefits of homeopathy and treat your lichen planus effectively, safely and gently.
