Treatment of Vitiligo:
Vitiligo has always puzzled physicians of all walks. However,
homoeopathy system offers reasonably positive treatment,
if not cure, in
all the cases.
As a rule, homoeopathy never looks at Vitiligo as a local
disease. Vitiligo has been considered as a local expression
of a system disturbance. As per the classical homoeopathy,
we believe in constitutional prescribing. This calls for
individual case study in every case of Vitiligo. There is
no single specific remedy for all the cases of Vitiligo.
The exact treatment is determined only on in-depth evaluation
of individual case.
What is the
What we understand by the Constitutional Approach in homeopathy
is nothing but analysis and evaluation of various factors
affecting the human constitution to determine the disease
diagnosis and the exact treatment in turn. Every case of
Vitiligo calls for study of the patient's constitution which
includes various aspects of his physical aspects as well
as the in-depth study of the mental sphere, such as emotions,
psychosocial background, behavior and personality pattern,
The homeopathic remedy selected in every case after such
a detail study is called the constitutional medicine, which
when administered in the correct dose brings about harmony
at the constitutional level, stimulating the normal pigmentation
and hence induces normal skin coloration. It will be of
interest to note that the homeopathy medicines are essentially
oral and not in the form of creams, lotions or any local
application on the skin.
curable with homoeopathy?
Yes, homoeopathy offers an excellent treatment and a hope
to most cases of Vitiligo. Based on a study at our center,
it can be said that the answer broadly depends of the following
Duration of Vitiligo
Extent of spread
Those cases of recent origin respond much better than ones
which are more than 10 years duration. Children and young
people have shown better results in our experience.
Single or a few spots (2 to 9) respond better than those
which are very large (more than 5 inches in size). Those
individuals having only a single spot have excellent cure
rate. The cases with generalized spread and affection of
finger- tips, toes, corners of the mouth and eyes have shown
no results in our experience.
It may be noted that we do not undertake treatment of extensive
cases of vitiligo as the results are not encouraging.
of homeopathic treatment:
Vitiligo being a chronic and long-standing
disorder, it takes time to show results. Larger and older
spots take longer time. Exact time can not be predicted.
However, improvement begins within 4 to 8 weeks in most
cases. The length of treatment should be considered as over
6 months to one year or more.
treatment be taken with other therapy?
This is a commonly asked question. The answer
some side effects of homeopathy medicines?
The homeopathic medicines are prescribed
on the nature's principles of cure. They are 100% non-toxic,
absolutely harmless and free from any side effects whatsoever.
