Patient's Case Studies At Life Force
Treated with allopathic medicines and had required admission in the hospital and was put on heavy doses of steroids.
This is the case of Mrs. B.M (Patient Ref. No. L-4204) a 44 years old, married housewife who came to the clinic with complaints of lichen planus for about 2 years. She had widespread lesions that had started on her arms and legs and later had spread to the whole of her body. There was intense itching in the affected parts. She had been treated with allopathic medicines and had required admission to the hospital once for control of her lichen planus. She had been put on heavy doses of steroids for the same. Even after discharge from the hospital, the patient had to be kept on oral steroids for a long time for control of the LP.
She was a known diabetic for 15 years and was under treatment for the same.
Her appetite and thirst were markedly increased when she reported to us. She had craving for butter and bread and had aversion to sweets. Her menstrual cycles would appear early (every 15 days) after being put on steroids. She had been working as a teacher prior to the onset of the LP. She would get dreams of being pursued and of falling down from the bed. The peculiarities of her personality were that she would get very angry at trifles and her anger would be very violent. She had a lot of negative thoughts and insecurity about the financial status of the family. She would react badly to insults and injustice and would be very depressed due to this. She would frequently dwell on past unpleasant events and would weep on account of the same. She would weep only when she was alone and would not like to be consoled.
Based on this history she was prescribed Natrum Muriaticum 200 for the lichen planus. The steroids were gradually tapered off in due course of time and she continued to improve. She was completely cured of the Lichen Planus in about 2 years and only the hyperpigmented marks remained for which she continued treatment for some more time.
