Homoeopathy is a safe, simple, effective
scientific system of medicine applying same principle
of a disease. We imply this as "Similia similibus
curantur'`, which means 'let likes be treated by likes.'
The mode of action is totally different from the other
systems of medicine not only by the method of application,
but also in dosage. Homoeopathy medicines are administered
in most diluted forms to avoid unneccessary complications
and side effects. It activates the internal energy to
fight against the diseases.The most important advantage
of taking Homoeopathy medicine - No side effects! The
second advantage is permanent cure! Homoeopathy offers
safe medication, from infants to the old.
want know whether the vitiligo spread to others? My husband
has white skin in the fingers, toes and genitals will
it affect me?
Vitiligo is not
contagious at all. It neither caused by a bacteria, virus,
nor by fungus. Vitiligo is caused by the malfunctioning
of pigment cells, Melanocyte which fails to secrete the
melanin pigments. The skin turns white wherever it lacks
the pigment. Many people have misconception that it is
contagious particularly with partners. It never spreads
even if they have intercourse
My daughter is 11 years old. Recently her lower lips colour
changed mild pinkish, sometimes looks almost white. She
is medium in complexion. She feels embarrassed when any
body asks for it and advices her for treatment. I examined
her all parts of the body and told no changes in the skin
colour. I am quite afraid about her future, will it spread?
Is it curable?
This variety is mucosal type of vitiligo
lesions. It usually self limited and remain as such for
long time. But it could turn to acrofacial type involving
the fingers, soles, palms, navel, and genitals. Some persons
have the tendency to develop frequent mouth ulcers called
apthaes and some dyspeptic complaints, such cases improve
very rapidly with homoeopathic medicines. If the lesions
as true type don’t be panic Homoeopathic remedies
cured many cases.
I am 45 years. I have vitiligo since 20 years. First I
had a small patch on my left shoulder and almost within
a year all of my body turned white. I took allopathy,
siddha and ayurvedic treatment. I tried all oils, ointments,
PUVA, few turned back and then returned white. I was frustrated
in taking treatment. I have a doubt! If I take homoeopathy
any thing go worse reaction in my body? Any adverse effects
Physiological doses always give a forcible
stimulation to the melanocytes. When the doses are more
than the toxicity may give adverse effects. The melanocytes
which are in a paralyzed state may give few patches to
show their forcible stimulation. Second thing that the
vitiligo is a dynamic disease producing power; it always
reacts better to a dynamic medicines whatever the system
treats. Homoeopathic medicines are prepared to such minuteness,
potentized to inert the medicinal power to tackle the
disease. If the abnormality is absorbed it will work,
otherwise it will safely go away from the body without
harming anything. It will not have any side effects even
if it is continued to their life time.
am 52 years old. I attained menopause three years back.
Now I have small pin sized white spots in my forearm and
hands. Is it curable?
of melanocytes occurs in some persons due to hormonal
indulgence. During menopause a women undergo lot of changes
in hormonal secretions, which could change the oxidative
function. It could be corrected with basic study. These
kind of white spots also occurred in some individuals
after blood transfusion which could be evolved due auto
I heard that homoeopathy would aggravate
the disease and cure after. Whether my existing lesions
will spread more?
aggravation is seen in allergic reactions, Vitiligo is
a progressive disorder. The skin which appears as white
shows total dysfunction of the melanocytes. If the patient
receives a trauma that healing part remains white for
long time. This shows that already the dysfunction of
melanocytes had initiated. Generally the lesions respond
very quickly if the indicated remedy fits well to the
patient, but in some cases the progressiveness is due
existing disease force only and not by the medicinal force.
Generally the old lesions gets better and reverse order
of appearance is a good sign for improvement.
How long it takes to recover. Public
opinion is Homoeopathy is slow acting!
The cure depends
on the individual. We do not treat vitiligo in the name
of the disease; we treat the patient as whole to raise
his immune process to fight with the disease force. The
result will be quick depending upon the sensitization,
reversible pathology in the body. The response is similar
to a small lesion and all over the body is the same. Few
patients had given response with in three months. Some
patients had responded after two years. We can not assure
with time bounded treatment. A homoeopathic physician
should apply his mind on the vital changes, study them
correctly to prescribe the most suitable remedy for radical
cure and give fast relief to the patients
I have vitiligo since three years in my lips, wrist and
legs; I took all types of treatment. I applied oils and
stood in sunlight for one hour every day. I found few
patches turned back and again it is white now. Any external
ointments in Homoeopathy?
We do not advocate
any external therapy. We trust the dynamic action of the
drugs only to make the body to fight on its own. Usually
sun exposure could stimulate melanocyte to a certain degree
by it is transient. Local applications, Ultra violet rays
also render the same to a patient. The reliability depends
only that the immune system action to nulliate the causative
am having vitiligo since 10 years. If I got married will
it affect my kids? Shall we prevent it?
The genetics always differs from one
generation to other generation. It depends upon the genes
that disease code inserted. It may or may not. For example
a fair lady married to a dark man gives birth to fair
or dark child. The dark shall give birth to a fair child.
The disease genes are always submissive in generations
So a medicine which is possible to rectify the genetic
code will be suitable. We cannot say blindly that Homoeopathy
could do wonders or others do a lot.More research is needed,
however in the present state; the Homoeopathy has reached
in treating the body on dynamic plane
Why non vegetarian food is restricted for vitiligo patients?
Non Vegetarian foods are recognized
by our body as foreign proteins. Meat, Chicken, egg, dry
fish, pork or any kind could give auto immune reactions
rather than a vegetable origin. It is just like blood
transfusion. When blood group is not matched the victim
may face grave consequences. Even after good cross matching
I have seen some patients with tiny white spots all over
the body could be due to auto immune reactions. Clinically
the vitiligo patients are less to occur in vegetarians.
Especially noted among Brahmins. Vitiligo patients can
live happily as vegetarians!
stress cause vitiligo?
Stress will not be the basic cause,
but could be an aggravating factor. In our brain hypothalamus
is the center for our emotions. It usually picks up the
information from the skin as a feed back and order pituitary
gland to secrete more melanocyte stimulating hormones.
Similarly our emotions could modify the function of pituitary.
Counseling is more important to overcome such worries.
Homoeopathic prescription is always based on such expression
for better prescription to a patient.
I have vitiligo over face, chest, fingers and toes. I
am much embarrassed in attending a function or meeting.
Shall I put some cosmetic camouflage to cover the spots
The discolourations could make low
self esteem and feeling of inferiourity , There are make
up materials available to match one’s skin colour.
Thesecosmetic camouflage can be used occasionally to attend
the functions , but keep in prolonged use could sensitise
the keratocytes and melanocytes affecting chemically.
Natural colour like Henna, turmeric can be used safely
am pregnant and carrying since three months , I have white
skin and continuing Homoeopathic treatment. Shall I continue
Certainly! Homoeopathic Medicines do
not have any adverse effect since it treat your immune
system not the disease. In fact other allied illness can
be tackled with out your knowledge . The medicines are
more diluted and administered in dynamic form so it will
not have any side effects at all.
am having a small white spot in my chest . I am getting
married soon. Shall I take homoeopathic medicine for immediate
recovery. Shall I go for skin grafting? Which is advisable.
We cannot predict the time limit in
an individual since the medicines are applied to arouse
your immune system . The susceptibility varies to individual
to individual . Since the lesion is single you prefer
surgical aids, but if the lesions are always better to
rely on medicines
have the vitiligo patches all over the body . about 95%
covered with white skin. Is there any medication available
for complete bleaching. I heard great singer Michael Jackson
Skin bleaching treatment are available
only in modern medicine .The chemical could affect the
melanocytes functioning and make the dark skin to white.
Consult a dermatologist
Why sour things are restricted in diet for vitiligo patients?
Sour foods are rich in Vitamin C ,which
interferes with oxidation process oin melanocyte by affecting
the formation tyrosinase .So all citric acid foods to
be restricted to minimum. So vitiligo patient is advised
to avoid all sour foods like lemon, orange, pickles, grapes.
However it is needed minimally to compensated the requirement
of vitamin C
much time needed to cure a vitiligo patient?
universal question will be expected every patient at the
end of the consultation. We cannot challenge or fix time
limit for cure. If the symptoms of the patient match the
remedy the cure will be fast. There are patients who responded
within a period of three months with normal pigmentation.
I have seen one vitiligo patient showed improvement only
after two years. Generally the patients with dark skin
responded quickly than a fair skinned patients. Some patients
used to ask me to increase the dose to expedite cure as
in modern medicine by believing the material effect of
medicines. Homoeopathically we cannot do like that since
the medicines are dynamic. The selection of potency and
medicine totally depends on the skill of a homoeopath.
I am having vitiligo since 3 years over my lips, forearm
and legs. I have tried PUVA therapy; some spots came and
then disappeared. I applied oil and showed to the sun
every day morning for one hour. Few spots recovered but
vanished again after few months. Shall I apply the oil
and take homoeopathy medicines together!
sun exposure and external oils would stimulate the keratocyte
photoreceptors to stimulate the melanocytes by activating
the pituitary gland through the hypothalamus stimulation.
It would be beneficial to understand whether the melanocytes
completely destructed or functional disturbed, but it
cannot yield permanent result. Here we should stimulate
our body immune system for sustained effect and make our
body to fight on its own. Homoeopaths apply the medicines
to arouse the body’s immunity. This is the reason
a Homoeopath takes more time in case taking to understand
his mind body in relation to the disease. We do not advocate
any external applications for Vitiligo.
