Cures for Vitiligo
- Written by Michael G.
Vitiligo is an autoimmune disorder which results in loss of pigmentation on the skin. Cures for Vitiligo are not currently available, but there are many patients around the world who have overcome their condition using unconventional and scientific methods to repigment their skin and stop the spread of the disease. Because the psychological impact of Vitiligo is so traumatic many patients fall victim to companies that take advantage of this vulnerability. Before you consider trying any product that claims to cure your Vitiligo make sure the product will not harm your overall health and deteriorate your condition.
Every Vitiligo patient has a different definition of what they consider a cure. The definitions vary because everyone experiences different levels of de-pigmentation and most patients know there is not a standard cure that will get rid of Vitiligo. For this reason Vitiligo patients have different interpretations as to what they consider a cure for themselves. It is important to understand how the disease progresses with you so you will be able to find your own definition of what a cure is for Vitiligo.
Stopping the Spread of Vitiligo
For most Vitiligo patients stopping the spread of new breakouts in different parts of the body is considered a cure. No one really knows how and why of Vitiligo stops or continues to spread, but different forms of therapy including light or sun, topical and systemic drugs as well as nutrition therapy has resulted in stopping the spread of Vitiligo. Stopping the spread does not mean you cure yourself of Vitiligo, it just means it is not spreading into other parts of your body. Once you have stabilized your Vitiligo you can take measures to introduce pigment to those areas that don't have any pigment.
Living with Vitiligo
The most difficult part about Vitiligo is living with the psychological effects of having the disease. While the disease doesn't cause any physical pain the psychological impact can be hard to deal with. The impact is exacerbated by the many attempts patients make to find cures for Vitiligo. The effect of hoping for a cure and being disappointed when it doesn't work can take a great toll on the psyche of someone that has been diagnosed with Vitiligo. Even though psychological therapy will not cure your Vitiligo the tools it provides can be seen as a cure for many of the patients who have Vitiligo.
Although Vitiligo is still a mystery the fact remains that patients have healed from Vitiligo and the possibility is there. Through research and dedication the chances of healing are greatly increased.
