VITILIGO: A disorder consisting of areas of macular depigmentation, commonly on extensor aspects of extremities, on the face or neck, and in skin folds. Age of onset is often in young adulthood and the condition tends to progress gradually with lesions enlarging and extending until a quiescent state is reached.
When we talk about vitiligo treatment we must clearly understand that the vitiligo treatments that are currently available help us in managing vitiligo. These vitiligo treatments do not eradicate the basic abnormality.
Vitiligo is known in Ayurveda as Shwitra or Kilaas. The ancient texts clearly mention that this condition is not contagious, and does not cause symptoms like other skin diseases. The primary aim of addressing the Vitiligo treatment is in reality to better up the visual aspect of the skin. Many a varied therapies as well as discourses are available for vitiligo, which in reality of things take almost one to two years for any effect to be had from them. The selection of a particular treatment for vitiligo depends upon mainly the size and then the time period of the disease. The response of different patients skin is different in every case under every treatment.
For many years, there is almost no treatment for vitiligo. Nowadays, herbalist have come with a new idea on how to cure vitiligo effectively. The most popular and original treatment for vitiligo , Go vitiligo oil which is popularly known as topical vitiligo treatment.
Babachi or bavachi has a special place in vitiligo treatment. It is applied on the skin in the form of a oil with other three main ingredients, and the affected skin parts are exposed for a few minutes to the mild rays of the sun, at particular times of the day. Sun exposure of the white skin patch is also an important part during the course of most treatment regimens, and the best time for sun exposure shall be from 12:00 am to 3:00 pm.
In order to understand the topical oil therapy it is necessary to have some basic knowledge in dermatology. The melanocytes are some cells located in the deeper layer of the epidermis (that it is not other than the most superficial thin veil of our skin and it has an average thickness of 0,4 mm) and that during the pathological process leading to the vitiligo are "inactivated" or "killed". The melanocytes being the cells, which contain (the main color of the skin), their absence is revealed by the lack of color in the affected zone: this is the vitiligo. Yet the epidermis is not the only zone of the skin provided with melanocytes. In fact, the color of the hair and of the hairs is precisely due to the melanocytes being situated close to the hair bulb (in the zone known as perifollicular) placed much more in depth compared to the epidermis. These deep melanocytes are very rarely interested by the process that causes the vitiligo and, if opportunely stimulated, they can multiply themselves, climb back in the epidermis and give rise to new pigmentation, and therefore to the cure of the spots. This phenomenon, that sometimes is spontaneous or caused simply by the exposure to the sun, shows itself through the appearance of circular points of pigmentation in the zones made achromic (that is without color) by the vitiligo.
The damage to pigment producing cells manifests as patches of skin, which have reduced, or no pigment. This is what bothers you, and this is where Go Vitiligo oil works. It currently has the highest rate of success in this regard, and re-orders rate for this product is now exceeding 60%. Once the pigment has been restored locally, it stays there. There have been only one report documented of local loss of pigment after successful treatment with Go Vitiligo Oil.
The therapy has never highlighted any negative side effects. The treatment has a variable general duration in accordance with the extension of the affected zones and the reaction of the subject. There are conditions of relatively constant reaction for each patient. The face, the groin, the armpits, the genitals, the neck, the breast and the thighs are the areas which re-pigment first, while the terminal zones close to the fingernails of the hands and the feet require in general, a superior lapse of time (normally 3 to 4 months).
The duration of treatment may not be proportional to the extent of skin involvement, probably because of a disturbed immune system. For example, some persons with widespread vitiligo may respond very fast, whereas others with a few skin patches may respond slowly.
It is not impossible to cure vitiligo, if your disease is limited or patches are not so much widespread then you can go for local treatment. It is advisable to avoid oranges, sweet lime, sea food, excessive salt, and sour, beef, eggs or fermented food products during treatment for best results.
