What is Vitiligo? Vitiligo is actually a disease of the skin in which you will find white patches. A disease which is difficult and longer lasting, patients have several options to choose from, for their vitiligo treatment. Let’s take a look at the different therapy for vitiligo that are offered today.
What will happen in Vitiligo?
Melanin is the pigment that accounts for our skin colour. In Vitiligo, your skin cells that produce this pigment either die or are not able to secrete this melanin. Factors such as heredity, exposure to chemicals, stress, sunburn and one’s own immunity attacking and destroying the skin cells are regarded as responsible.
Thus, the conventional solution for vitiligo aims at either suppressing the erroneous immune system or at bringing colour returning to the white patch. Treatments for vitiligo are notoriously expensive, ineffective and connected with a high risk of unwanted effects. Unfortunately, this people who have this condition tend to be desperate for a cure, and are willing to pay any price, even while they are told concerning the problems and limitations of the therapies. Every year, the pharmaceutical industry keeps coming up with new, more costly yet still ineffective therapies. And, the earnings for that industry keep increasing…
In fact, in accordance with ASDReports.com, in the year 2011 the vitiligo therapeutics market was estimated to get worth $1.4 billon. By 2019, it really is estimated this market will grow to $2.7 billion, put simply, doubling the gain which already lucrative niche.
And that’s its not all. The truth is, this may not be ‘new’, or ‘cutting-edge’ research. Certainly not – in fact, medical scientists have published reports about how they cured vitiligo within a few weeks using only natural extracts and nutrients as early as the 1980s! And again in the 1990s, there was several reports by Swedish doctors about how a single herb and/or vitamin supplementation can halt the spread of vitiligo immediately and cure it completely in a matter of weeks with zero negative effects.
What are the Conventional Medicines for Vitiligo Treatment? Corticosteroid creams and creams having drugs called tacrolimus or pimecrolimus make an effort to suppress the immunity. Thus it plans to stop the immunity from attacking one’s own skin cells. Light therapy involves the effective use of UV rays on the skin, sometimes together with medications to improve light sensitivity. Grafting a patch of normal skin within the white patch and tattooing can also be options that aim to restore colour in a specific patch.
