I am looking for treatment for LSA. I need
to find something to treat and prevent it
and something to ease the scarring due to it.
Any help or suggestions.
Traditional methods say no cure and the treatment of choice cortisone cream.
Thank you.

Dear Sueberti:

We hasten to write again and mention a few things that you may begin doing.

Eliminate from your diet the following:
Pork, heavy red meats, white sugar, white bread, white flour, All dairy (except plain yogurt), alcohol, cigarrettes, sodas, chips, All fried and greasy foods and all foods with additives and/or preservatives.

Enhance your diet with: Lean fish, oysters, shrimp, cornish hen, chicken, turkey, plenty of yogurt, plenty of garlic, ginger root, onions, honey, brown rice, plenty of oats, thyme, rosemary, steamed fresh vegetables and fresh raw fruits.

Supplement daily with a good-multi-vitamin, multi-mineral containing all 22 amino acids.
Add to that 1,000mg Vit. C 3xs day, 3 tablets of Acidophilus 3xs day, 1 teaspoon of Linseed oil 1x day and 3 capsules of Echinacea 3xs day.

To boost the immune system add to at least 2 of your meals daily: A small piece of Astragalus root, a small piece of American ginseng root or white Chinese Ginseng root and a large piece of Chinese Angelica. This last ingredient, is a must.

Drink infusions of Chinese Angelica, Peony root and Dandelion in equal parts. Drink 4 or 5xs daily and sweeten only with honey.

Another infusion we suggest is: Black Cohosh, Goldenseal and Calendula in equal parts and adding 3 drops tincture of Gentian.

An improved version of this last, is: Black Cohosh, Dandelion and Forthysia in equal parts with 15 drops of an infusion of Tea tree.

An ointment composed either of Calendula or Wild Yam may be of great help.
You may be also interested in trying an old folk remedy. Soak a tampon in plain Yogurt and gently place in the vagina, you may add to this, 3 drops tincture of Tea Tree. Discontinue or lessen this last ingredient if uncomfortable or a slight burning sensation develops.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine we employ a combination of several different formulas. Among them: Lien Chiao Pai Tu Pien, Lung Tang Xie Gan Wan, Wu Chi Pai Feng Wan, Yuo Zhi Gui Ling Gao and Chuan Shan Jia Qu Shi Qing Du Wan.
For more info on these you may soon contact us at our on-line store, for now you may contact us directly at:

We hope to have been of help to you. Do not hesitate to write us again.
Good Luck ! H.
