I practice yoga and meditation everyday, it is one of the only things keeping me sane whilst I have this obsession. The funny thing is, my lips got worse when I tried to start healing them. All the creams that dermatologist gave me gave my lips flexibility yet always ended with them peeling. I will say though, if I didn't eat, talk, or move my mouth whatsoever, I believe they would heal in no time.
I agree and think if you have tried everything in terms of Elimination Diets and healthy living and still have EC, than it has to be trauma related, hence why it is a disease of the mind and hence why people have been cured when they have changed lifestyle and not had the time to focus on this disease.
I have traveled to places all over the world, yet I still always obsessed with my lips.
I am going to try the no moisture method again, perhaps only using oils when they hurt.
