Allergies, itching and Lichen Planopilaris / Graham Little syndrome

"Approximately 5-6 years ago I developed an oral Lichen Planus condition and more recently this developed into Lichen Planopilaris / Graham Little Syndrome. Predominant symptom being intense itching over the whole body. Eventual result has been loss of most body hair, loss of eyebrows and eyelashes and hair thinning on the scalp. It is not clear what caused the onset of the condition. 

Additionally since childhood I have suffered from severe allergic reactions to pollen (grass/trees), moulds, dust, animal hair, insect bites etc - hayfever, urticaria, anaphyaxsis

Due to the above and the fact that I also have an under-active thyroid I decided to try acupuncture to treat the itching and potentially stimulate self heeling process. Aiming to slow down the progression of the hair loss which with Lichen Planopilaris is permanent.

The sessions I had helped initially to reduce the itching and eventually reducing it to almost nothing which reduces the reliance on the steroid treatments."

Stress, Anxiety & Allergies

"I have been to see Lily on 2 separate occasions. 

The first time was a couple of years ago due to feeling stressed, anxious and generally overwhelmed for a while. I had tried various natural therapies and had heard good things about acupuncture so thought I'd give it a try.

I then came to see Lily again 2 years later, around a year aged having my first son, due to hormonal imbalances causing lots of allergies. Within 2 sessions all of my symptoms had completely gone! Again, 

Lily is very friendly and welcoming and straight away made me feel comfortable. She offered lots of other advice during my consultation to try and incorporate alongside my acupuncture treatments. "
