Lichen Planus Remedies
I just wanted you to know that my recent article about Oral Lichen Planus and Lichen Planus was for you. I hope it helps you!
Thanks, Art! I have read it with interest and have been holding the melatonin pills in my mouth at night as you suggested. I have 9.5mg zinc orotate tablets that I take with water. Could probably dissolve some and swish around in the mouth. I was a little concerned about taking 50mg/day? I know zinc can be a little tricky. Maybe start slowly and see how it goes?
You have been such a good friend to me and so many here, and I appreciate your research so much. I continue to take the homeopathic pills and liquid for back pain every day. I think I may feel a lot better by January. I also bought the Amla capsules you recommended and have been taking them with some Lion's Mane capsules (I also have Bacopa that I only tried once or twice, and may look at that again, but I like the Lion's Mane and can sometimes feel a difference after taking it). The statins did a number on my brain as well as my legs, and I found your post to be easily incorporated for forgetfulness or beginning dementia. I may skip the Lithium, because I think I tried it before and threw it away for some reason. Will see how I do with what I am taking for now. I always take the LDN three to five days/week for at least ten years now, and believe it gives me benefit for autoimmune issues. I feel if I incorporate your new ideas, I may be well on my way to some resolution or at least maintenance.
I can't thank you enough for your generosity of time and thoughtfulness. There is no way I would have found most of your research myself. I am beyond grateful to you, Art, as are most members of Earth Clinic. Thank you for your kindness and concern for everyone on this site.
Yes, I understand what you are saying about zinc. When I was writing that post, I had to consider that many different people would be reading and possibly testing the two. I have 50 mg capsules and those are what I use, but they have 12.5 mg, 25 mg, 30 mg and 50 mg capsules. I have to take more because I am low on zinc. The zinc lozenges may be a way to maximize the exposure right where it is needed, but I wouldn't get crazy taking them.
Statins are known for muscle and joint issues so I always ask people who use them if they would be interested in alternatives.
On the lithium, my friend only went with 5 mg capsules instead of 20 mg. So she did fine with that.
Bacopa is on my list of potential substitutes for memory improvement.
I really hope you get relief with this combination, Rsw!
