Vitiligo is an autoimmune skin condition that causes white patches to appear on the skin. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, vitiligo affects between 0.2 to 2% of the world’s population. Vitiligo is uncertain and unpredictable. The visible white patches on skin often impact a person’s self-esteem and give rise to emotional and mental stress. However, homeopathy’s holistic approach is the best treatment for vitiligo as it is aimed at the complete well-being of the patient.

You may experience loss of skin colour in various areas of the body but the first signs of vitiligo are noticed in the areas that are most exposed to the sun. Some people experience vitiligo patches in a symmetrical pattern. For example, if the right arm is affected your left arm is more likely to be affected too. On the other hand, some may experience depigmentation on different areas such as the mouth, scalp, eyelash, eyebrows or hair. The progress of this skin disease varies from person to person. In most cases, a combination of factors cause white patches on skin. Let’s look at some of the internal and external factors that can increase the risk of vitiligo:

  • Family History: Autoimmune diseases generally have a genetic component but it remains unclear. While the immune system is majorly responsible, genetics or family history of other auto-immune diseases can also increase the risk of white patches.
  • Environmental Factors: This is when something in the environment is setting off an immune response. Exposure to the sun, certain chemicals or injury to the skin can further trigger the destruction of melanocytes and prompt the spread of vitiligo.
  • Existing Medical Condition: People suffering from other autoimmune or medical conditions are at an increased risk of developing vitiligo. History of diseases such as psoriasis, alopecia areata, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis can increase the risk.

Choosing the best treatment for vitiligo

The treatment options vary according to the severity of your condition. Commonly, vitiligo is treated with oral medications, steroid creams, UV therapy or micro tattooing. However, not all methods of treatment may work for you as the underlying cause differs from person to person. While vitiligo may seem difficult to control, it is not impossible. The best vitiligo treatment is one that is safe, scientific and effective. Homeopathy does exactly that, it helps to target the root cause of the ailment. Homeopathic treatment helps to enhance your immune system so that your body can fight infection on its own.

Homeopathy has proven its efficacy in treating vitiligo. In a study published in the International Journal of Women’s Dermatology, 14 patients were treated with individualized homeopathic medicine for vitiligo. In this study, homeopathy showed effective results when started in the early stages of their skin disease.
