Lichen planus is a skin, hair, nail, and mucous membrane condition that causes swelling and discomfort. Lichen planus shows on the skin as reddish, itchy, flat lumps that develop over several weeks. Lichen planus causes lacy white patches in the mouth, vagina, and other mucous membrane-covered places, sometimes causing painful blisters.
All skin conditions in Ayurveda are referred to as kushta roga. Lichen planus can be linked to charma kushtha, which causes vata, pitta, and kapha dosha aggravation, because the indications and symptoms are similar. The vitiated dosha has an effect on the skin, blood circulation, and tissue moisture levels, causing skin to become discoloured, tough, and thick.
The treatment of lichen planus follows multiple detoxifications using panchakarma procedures to eliminate ama, correction of agni, application of herbal oil and lepa, and use of rasayana to reduce the symptoms.
At Elite Ayurveda, Lichen Planus treatment is carried out in following stages:
“The ayurvedic approach of disease looks for the root cause and not merely the symptoms. The basic principles of Ayurveda consider an individual human a specific identity and hence his treatment giving importance to the treatment of the patient rather than the treatment of the disease.”
“Since Ayurveda focuses on the root-cause of the disease, it effectively reduces the risk of severe health complications arising out of the untreated underlying cause. Patients who complete their Ayurveda treatment have a reduced risk of health complications later.”
"Heal your body naturally with 5000-year-old knowledge of Ayurveda and Modern Science. From its authenticity, structured approach and personalisation play a very important role in complementing the effect of medicines as well as sustaining the benefit of treatment after the medicines have ended."
