Body, Mind & Spirit Practices
to Heal the Stress of LS
Inspiration, relief and support to empower your management of LS.
I was misdiagnosed in 2017 and then properly diagnosed in 2021. Most people (and many health care practitioners) have never heard of lichen sclerosus. During my journey to discover everything about this “rare” autoimmune condition, I was fortunate to be referred to a dermatology clinic with a gynaecologist who specializes in LS. I include in this book my personal journey, the health care professionals who helped me, the alternative modalities that empower my own healing, and the resources I gathered along the way.
All of this to support you in your personal journey with LS. You are not alone. You have healing options available to you. There is a supportive community ready to welcome you.

From the book:
I suspect it is “rare” because it is misdiagnosed. In an online menopause group, a member complained of pain with sex and “my vagina is closing.” While many members jumped in with links to vaginal atrophy and “It’s normal in menopause,” I was reminded of when my doctor misdiagnosed me. There’s ignorance around LS because it is little-known and because it is often awkward to discuss with others, including your doctor. That’s changing, thanks to all the people who are speaking up and sharing their experiences and wisdom.
I did so much research on the subject that I believe my conversation with the GYN was as fascinating for him as it was for me. At least I’d like to think so. I’m pretty sure he didn’t. He knew what he was looking for and immediately diagnosed me with lichen sclerosus. It was two days before my 50th birthday. Worst. Gift. Ever.
According to The Royal Women’s Hospital in Victoria, Australia:
Lichen sclerosus affects around one in 80 women. It can happen at any age, but is most common in middle-aged and elderly women.
Research suggests that the most probable cause of lichen sclerosus is an autoimmune reaction in genetically predisposed individuals.
