Recent studies conducted at the University of Toronto and published in the BioMed Central Journal of Dermatologyhave clearly demonstrated the benefits of orally taken Ginkgo biloba for the treatment of vitiligo. This is a known homeopathic drug that has successfully treated vitiligo.
In another clinical study conducted by the AKP Homeopathic Clinical Centre, a total 259 vitiligo patients had improved out of 629 patients, and 42 leucoderma patients benefitted out of 97 patients included in the study. Thus, research has also demonstrated the effectiveness of homeopathy in a difficult condition such as vitiligo.
At Dr Batra’s™, we have the expertise of treating more than 45,000 skin cases successfully over past 35 years. Thus, we can ensure a safe and scientific solution for vitiligo. The treatment is primarily aimed at stopping or slowing down the further destruction of melanocytes and stimulating re-pigmentation in the existing patches. Our team of expert homeopaths, dermatologists and nutritionists work in unison to ensure the best for each case.
The scope of homeopathic treatment extends beyond the physical symptoms, and the approach is more holistic in nature. It also addresses the underlying conditions of mental stress and depression that are seen in many cases, to help patients be re-integrated into normal life.
Prognosis with homeopathic treatment depends on certain criteria such as the location, duration, extent of spread and disease activity. It also depends on the general health of the patient and presence of other systemic illnesses such as thyroid disorders, auto-immune diseases, etc. Vitiligo over bony prominences, around the lips, on the fingertips and toes, and generalised-extensive vitiligo show slow improvement. Even after starting the treatment, the patient may notice the occurrence of some new spots; however, this is because it takes some time to control the disease activity and balance the immune system.
The medicines prescribed at Dr Batra’s™ are known to be safe, without any adverse effects, and the patients are not advised any particular dietary restrictions.
