Lichen Sclerosus Podcast Interview
March 28, 2021

I had the pleasure of sitting down with Kathy from the Lichen Sclerosus Podcast and Lichen Sclerosus Support Network. We had an incredible time chatting about what I’ve gone through and how I’m now helping other women investigate the root cause of their LS.

We spent half the day together and the result was three episodes of the Lichen Sclerosus Podcast. The first two are my diagnosis story. We got into the nitty gritty details of my diagnosis, how the healthcare system repeatedly failed, how I had to learn to advocate for myself, and how I chose a very different route for treatment.

The third episode is a complete run down of my three-legged stool approach to autoimmunity and the six categories of autoimmune triggers that I help women investigate to get to the root of their immune dysfunction.
