Is Vitiligo Curable in Homeopathy or Does Homeopathy Work for Vitiligo?
Yes, Homeopathy can cure persons with vitiligo. Leucoderma arises from the derangement of the inner part of the human body and does not come from an external source. That is why the only accurate and right way to cure vitiligo is through internal medication rather than applying or application of conventional medicines.
Homeopathy works on the basic principle that is, “to evacuate the disease from the body”. When homeopathy deals with leucoderma, it does not pay attention to the end results like white spots. But it focuses on the cause of vitiligo. Homeopathic remedies for leucoderma moderate the overactive immune system which is destroying the melanocyte cells in the skin.
The first objective of homeopathic medicines is to stop the further development of vitiligo. It is also followed by the second phase of treatment, that is regaining the normal skin color in white spots. This process can take a considerable time of time and it varies from case to case.
