Excellent Recovery from Chronic Lichen Planus Achieved with Homeopathy at Life Force
A 35-year-old male, Mr. M. M. (PIN: 28762) started treatment at Life Force Homeopathy for his complaints of Lichen Planus. The patient had the 1st episode a decade back, which had resolved on its own without any medications. The patient had experienced a relapse in the last 3 months, and it was much more severe & extensive. It presented as small circular raised purplish lesions that were turning darker with the passing days. A mild itching was accompanied with it. The lesions were present over the forearms, hands, groin region, & the thighs. The severity was moderate & it was spreading gradually. This time he was anxious about the disease & sought help to get rid of it.
The patient was a non-vegetarian and had an average appetite. He liked eating spicy food & sweets more than other things. He was fond of eating non-vegetarian food. He did not consume much vegetables as he did not like them. He had an average thirst and was drinking 2.5 liters of water a day. He experienced an average perspiration. He was not comfortable with hot temperatures. His digestion was imbalanced, & he experienced unsatisfactory stools, which required straining to be passed. He had no urinary complaints. The patient enjoyed a sound sleep; he had some unusual dreams of dogs biting him.
The patient had a normal upbringing with not much stress or difficulties. His recent life was stressful, & he was not yet settled in his life. He was still single. By nature, he was reserved, not very communicative, due to certain arguments, & had bitter experiences with his parents & colleagues at work. He felt a sensation of hatred & jealousy towards them. His memory, thoughts, perception, and analysis all were normal.
Lichen Planus is an autoimmune disease with relapses & goes in remission & this is a very good case illustrating the same.
The patient took the treatment at Life Force at 3 different times 2016-19, 2021-22, and 2023 May onwards – which he is continuing.
Dr. Rajesh Shah, M.D. studied the case in detail & prescribed medicines to the patient.
On his first follow-up in July 2016, the disease was still not controlled. New eruptions still coming up. After the assessment, 6 weeks of further prescription was made for him.
On his second follow-up in September 2016, the speed of new lesions had substantially reduced. Also, there was an improvement in the healing of existing lesions. So, a revised prescription was made by Dr. Rajesh Shah for another 6 weeks.
After his third follow-up in October 2016 end, he was completely stable & took a break from the treatment.
Till 2019, he was stable & was not under any medications.
Relapse in February 2019 – The patient restarted the treatment from Life Force Homeopathy for his relapse in February 2019. The relapse was triggered by the tremendous stress at work. A crop of raised circular dark-coloured lesions with dark pigmentation had appeared again with itching over them. Dr. Rajesh Shah studied the presentation & made a prescription for another 6 weeks.
By August 2019, he was better by 40% in his recovery from Lichen Planus with control over the new eruptions as well. Again, a prescription for 6 weeks prescription was made for the patient.
By October 2019, his recovery from Lichen Planus had improved by 70%. New lesions were rarely coming up, and old ones improved significantly. The pigmentation too had started fading out. So, another 6 weeks of prescription was done for the patient.
By December 2019, he had experienced complete recovery from Lichen Planus at Life Force Homeopathy & he again took a break from the treatment for a year and a half.
Relapse in June 2021
This time the lesions of Lichen Planus were milder & less extensive with minimal itching. The patient had an excellent experience with the past homeopathic treatments. So, he started the treatment at Life Force immediately. A 6-week prescription was made for the patient.
On his first follow-up in August 2021, the spread of the disease had slowed a lot with hardly one or 2 new eruptions. The patient had experienced an overall 30% improvement after restarting of the treatment. Another prescription of 6 weeks of medicines was prescribed.
By November 2021, the patient’s recovery from Lichen Planus had improved to 60%. So, another prescription of 6 weeks of medicines was prescribed.
By June 2022, the patient was completely relieved of his Lichen Planus & he again took a break from the treatment.
Relapse in May 2023
After a yearlong stable phase, the patient experienced another episode, but much milder, and without a second thought he restarted the treatment so that the Lichen Planus could be arrested before an outbreak.
On his first follow-up on the 13th of June 2023, good control over new eruptions was achieved. No new lesions had come up since the restart of treatment. A prescription for another 6 weeks was made again.
By August 2023, all his new lesions of Lichen Planus had disappeared with the recovery from pigmentation improving to a great extent.
He is continuing the medicines & hoping this is the mildest of the episodes in the whole journey of past relapses & remissions. Life Force Homeopathy treatment has helped him excellently. He is positive about achieving the complete end of Lichen Planus with the remaining treatment term.

Every time there was a relapse, homeopathy helped him experience only the mildest expressions with the subsequent episodes, thereby providing hopes of complete recovery or long-term stability.
