Vitiligo Treatment With Ayurvedic Hands
Vitiligo a.k.a Leucoderma is a pigmentation disorder in which the Melanocytes (pigmentation cells) in the skin area are completely destroyed. It results in the appearance of white patches on the skin in different parts of the body. Vitiligo starts as a small patch, but over a time period, it starts to spread throughout the body. Though it is not contagious but affects the person psychologically.
Switra or Kilasa is the Ayurvedic term of Vitiligo. Vatika, Paithika, and Kaphaj are the three forms of Switra. They have the features of Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.

Causes of Vitiligo

  •  Vitiligo is classified as an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system destroys its own body tissues.
  •  Family history
  •  Triggering events such as stress, sunburn or exposure to heavy industrial chemicals

Symptoms of Vitiligo

  •  White patches all over the body i.e. face, feet, and hands
  •  Premature graying of hair on scalp, eyelashes, beard, and eyebrows
  •  Loss of color inside the mouth and nose (mucous membranes)
  •  Loss or color change in the inner layer of the eyeball (retina)

Vitiligo Treatment

Even though many treatments are available for Vitiligo, it is quite difficult to treat the disorder entirely. Ayurveda, the ancient medication offers the safest treatment for Vitiligo with nil side effects. The disease is treated instead of treating the symptoms in this holistic treatment. Ayurveda helps to improve metabolism of the body which in turn enhances body’s immunity

  •  Ayurveda cleanses and purifies the blood and restores the skin color
  •  Corrects the digestion and prescribes a proper diet avoiding Virudhahara (unbalanced diet)
  •  The holistic approach does not only treat Vitiligo completely but also arrests the relapse and spread of the disease.
