Vitiligo was an uncommon disorder but it is nearing to be a common disorder as it is now more visible socially. Significant number of people are getting affected in present times which is a cause of concern. It has been affecting people regardless of age. Sufferers from as small as 6 months kids up to 86 years of elderly can be seen affected afresh with Vitiligo.
Spread of Vitiligo has also been found in almost all contingents worldwide. It is more prominent in dark people due to its prominence. In fair skinned people it is less visible.
Cause of Vitiligo relies on Autoimmunity. Mostly abrupt food combination intake, hygiene ignorance, adulterated food intake, prolonged use of Antibiotics, corticosteroids which can suppress and hamper immune system directly. Recurrent Jaundice, Typhoid or Malaria also affects Liver and immunity which causes autoimmune syndrome. In the state of autoimmunity the body protection mechanism gets abrupt and starts to destroy its own cells and tissues resulting into dormancy of pigment producing melanocytes cells.
Vitiligo treatment options are limited if we talk about result oriented side effect free treatment. Ayurvedic treatment for vitiligo is such treatment in which whole process of treatment is done with the help of herbs without side effects. It is developed with a thought in mind to provide best efficacy in treatment of vitiligo and leucoderma and should be safe for even small kids. The formulation in vitiligo treatment is made of herbs which are photosensitive and helps to re-start pigmentation work by re-energizing the dead or dormant pigment cells for successful pigment coverage over white lesion. As stability of immunity is also important for treatment of the root cause, thus Ayurvedic treatment for vitiligo also includes herbs which improves and stabilize the disturbed immunity. This assures permanency in results along with relapse of a white spot.
Other treatment options like allopathic have mainly temporary results with many side and adverse effects up to liver damage etc. Steroids are the most common choice in modern allopathic treatment which develops adaptability to the medicines and while stopping the treatment after healing the covered lesions again starts diminishing forming a more larger patch, which is distressing. Latest vitiligo treatment medicine developed as a side effect of a Rheumatoid Arthritis medicine in allopathic system claims to have faster vitiligo healing but the medicine has many side effects as it can cause cancer and tuberculosis. Such experimental treatment actually complicates vitiligo and are life threatening also. So, people should avoid taking such treatment.
Some Homeopathy treatment abruptly starts spreading of vitiligo spots in starting stages of treatment which looks more risky.
Ayurvedic vitiligo treatment is the safest and successful treatment offered till date which is result oriented and is side effect free but it should be taken under guidance of an Ayurvedic Vitiligo Specialist only.
