Support For Lichens Sclerosis

Living with Lichens Sclerosis can be a challenging journey, but you are not alone.

We’ve gathered essential information and resources to help you on your path to managing this condition 

Understanding Lichens Sclerosis

What is Lichens Sclerosis?

Lichens Sclerosis is a chronic inflammatory condition affecting the vulval & anal areas.

While the exact cause remains unknown it is believed to involve factors such as autoimmune dysfunction, hormonal imbalances & microbe/fungal overgrowths.

Symptoms include itching, pain & discomfort, leading to significant distress and impacts on daily life.

Naturopathic Perspective

Naturopathy provides a unique approach to Lichens Sclerosis management, addressing underlying hormonal imbalances to find the root cause and promote healing from within.

Our experienced naturopath, Araleena Isse, has been working with LS patients for over 15 years, offering comprehensive and holistic support tailored to individual needs.

Medical Treatment

Traditional medical treatment focuses on managing inflammation with steroids.

However for some individuals these treatments may not fully control symptoms. This is where natural alternatives and complimentary therapies are particularly valuable.

 

Microbiome Testing

Testing the vagina, as it shares the same microbiome as the vulva, is a crucial first step in treating Lichens Sclerosis.

Complex ecosystems of microbes reside in the female reproductive tract and disruptions in this ecosystem can result in LS and a range of unwanted symptoms.

A vaginal microbiome test is a comprehensive test which can be completed by yourself from the comfort of your own home. This allows us to assess bacterial imbalances and tailor treatment accordingly providing insights crucial for managing LS effectively.
