Heal your Vitiligo Disorder with Ayurveda.
Vitiligo affects up to 2% of people worldwide.
Vitiligo, also called ‘leucoderma’ causes patches of skin to turn white and lose their original color.
The color of your hair and skin is generally determined by the skin pigment Melanin. Vitiligo occurs when cells that produce the skin pigment melanin, stops functioning, resulting in white patches. The condition can affect the skin on any part of your body including mouth, hair, and eyes. People with vitiligo, are more likely to develop other autoimmune disorders.
It’s unclear as to what causes the pigment cells to fail or stop producing melanin. Vitiligo is thought to be an autoimmune condition where the immune cells attack the body’s own healthy tissues by mistake. Family history, or triggers like sunburn, stress, or exposure to industrial chemicals, contributes to your risk of developing it.
Ayurveda offers permanent and natural treatment for Vitiligo that can stop the spread of the disease and reverse its effect without any side effects.
