Know more about Vitiligo treatment in Ayurveda

Vitiligo (or Leucoderma / white patches / Switra / Safed Daag)  is a skin pigmentation disorder occurring due to death of melanocytes, resulting in loss of skin colour , formation of patches. It can affect the skin of any part of your body. It can also affect hair, eyes and inside of the mouth. As a result, white patches appear on the skin in different parts of the body. These patches also appear on the tissues inside of the mouth and nose, and the retina.

What Causes Vitiligo ?

Vitiligo is a Tridoshaj (disease caused by vitiation of all 3 doshas together). The main dosha which is in imbalance is the Pitta Dosha. This is an auto-immune disease.

Additionally, Vitiligo is said to be associated with certain auto-immune and inflammatory diseases such as Thyroid, Diabetes, Psoriasis and Pernicious Anemia. Vitiligo may also be hereditary; that is, it can run in families. Children whose parents have the disorder are more likely to develop Vitiligo.Nirogam Vitiligo Kit

  1. Consuming Green Leafy Vegetables (Saag) followed by drinking milk (Dugdha)
  2. Animal Meat is incompatible with Black Gram, Honey, Milk, Sprouts and Jaggery
  3. Milk should not be taken with sour substances

Ayurvedic Treatment of Vitiligo

As discussed earlier, the ancient Ayurvedic classical scriptures explain that, due to intake of incompatible food items, suppression of vomiting, intake of sour-salty and fermented food items, and indulging in sinful activities, the body doshas (vata, pitta, kapha) get aggravated, mainly the pitta dosha, causing imbalance in tissues (or Dhatus) mainly Plasma (rasa), Blood (rakta), and Muscles (mamsa).

It is very important to understand what needs to be done to correct and resolve Vitiligo.
The different principles adopted for a complete ayurvedic treatment involve:

  1. Correcting digestion and prescribing a proper diet, avoiding Virudhahara.
  2. Eliminating Ama (toxins).
  3. Strengthening the Immune system.
  4. Creating a balance between Doshas, especially balancing the Pitta Dosha.

The following measures will check the spread of Vitiligo:

  • Increase intake of bitter vegetables.
  • Avoid sour or tangy fruit, non-vegetarian food, curd, fermented food, urad dal.
  • Manage stress by yoga and meditation.
  • Socialise with family and friends to overcome the distress.
  • Khadira, bakuchi, bhallataka, mulaka, daruharidra, aragvadha, haritaki are some of the single drugs recommended in the treatment of vitiligo.

Traditional Ayurvedic formulations, which are recommended for Vitiligo:

Action of Bakuchi:

    1. Bakuchi helps skin to rejuvenate by working on the liver and removing the toxins from the body.
    2. Bakuchi is useful in indigestion and aama.
    3. It is also used locally in leucoderma
    4. Bakuchi is irritant and it removes the upper layers of the skin.
