Vitiligo is a condition in which the skin turns white due to ,loss of pigment – melanin which is produced by melanocytes which gives colour to skin . In vitiligo the melanocytes are destroyed leaving depigmented patches of skin .
Vitiligo signs include loss of skin colour in form of white patches of skin in any part of the body.
There is no way to determine if vitiligo will spread or remain confined to one location. Vitiligo is not painful and does not have significant health consequences; however, it can have emotional and psychological consequences.
- Auto-immune -A disorder in which your immune system attacks and destroys the melanocytes in the skin
- Family history (hereditary)
- A trigger event, such as sunburn, stress or exposure to industrial chemicals.
Vitiligo can cause serious self-esteem issues, lack of confidence and even depression and social isolation. Patients go to any lengths to get them treated, falling prey to advertisements and false treatments. However, no treatment offers a foolproof and long lasting result. Conventionally, medications like steroids and creams are used locally and exposure to UVB light is commonly used to treat vitiligo. However, their scope is limited and the efficacy is only short-term.
Role of HOMOEOPATHY in vitiligo
Homeopathy has given innumerable successful results in the treatment of vitiligo. Homeopathy helps by correcting the auto-immune disorder and restoring the normal immune system. It helps in stimulating the melanocytes and boosts the production of the pigment melanin, thus restoring the normal skin colour.
Homeopathic prescription is based on the deepest level of psychological understanding of the patient thereby delving into the root cause of the issue. This individualized approach widens the scope of homeopathy even more.
Advanced invention in homoeopathy
As per our research , VITILIGO shows there is a SEPARATION conflict which shows - A separation from a closed person or if he has seen or listen to any separation incident in his own as well as other’s life. Newborns suffer the conflict when they are separated from the mother at birth.
Children also experience separation conflicts when they are scolded, punished or abused, when a new sibling is born who gets more attention, when the parents split up, when they are not allowed to see their friends, when they have to separate from a favorite doll, teddy bear, stuffed animal or pet they like to cuddle; also, when the mother goes back to work, when they are put into daycare, kindergarten or to relatives, or when they are left with a sitter or nanny.
Similarly, the elderly feel separated from the “pack” when they have to move into a nursing home or after the death of a life-long spouse or companion. The fear of losing touch or contact with someone (the threat of a divorce, a difficult long-distance or weekend relationship, the fear that a loved one might leave, move away, or die) or feeling rejected by a person, let’s say, because of a disagreement can evoke the conflict
In homoeopathy we treat patient as a whole and not just affected skin part. Apart from local physical complaints we also take into consideration the mental aspect of the patient, because though it is said the cause of the vitiligo is not properly known. We in homoeopathy believe, through our study , that there is some changes at emotional level due to which skin affection may be caused .
If the vitiligo patch is by birth , we take into consideration the mental state of the mother during pregnancy.
After thorough case taking and understanding the whole patient .we prescribe the medicine. And though modern mdecicine says there is no cure but still by homoeopathy we can treat and in few patient cure is also possible.
