Ayurvedic Treatment for Leucoderma (Safed Daag)
Leucoderma (Safed Daag/white patches) is an idiopathic acquired skin disorder which can be identified by the breakout of white spots all over the body. Vitiligo & Leucoderma is more common in the Asia and the Middle East and is generally only detected after its occurrence. It is more prominent on darker skin people and is often compared or thought of as leprosy.
Leucoderma and Vitiligo are similar disorders and the line of treatment remains the same for both. While Leucoderma is acquired by accident, Vitiligo is self generated.
Both Leucoderma and Vitiligo are caused due to autoimmunity. In which the immune system gets disturbed and as a direct result, results in the self destruction of cells. The cells producing melanin pigment if destroyed leads to the non production of the pigment and thus, leads to white patches all over the body.
Leucoderma & Vitiligo also might be caused by an accident or an injury wherein there is a complete erosion of the pigment producing cells. Leucoderma & Vitiligo also might be caused due to plastic allergies, perfume allergies, or the use of harsh soaps and hand sanitizers. These are just some examples of how Leucoderma and Vitiligo are borne. The underlying principle being the destruction of pigment producing cells.
These diseases (Leucoderma & Vitiligo) causes a lot of mental pain and anguish for the sufferer. making him/ her feel as a social outcast and often leads to chronic depression and demotivation. Most of the sufferers are misinformed, misguided and are treated with incompatible and ineffective drugs and medicines. This adds to the burden of the sufferers and makes them want the perfect cure even more.
Until a couple of years ago, the treatment or the cure of Leucoderma & Vitiligo was thought of as difficult and in some cases unachievable. Recently a lot of research and development has gone into the cure of these white spots/ cure of Leucoderma & Vitiligo through ayurveda. For hundreds of years the Ayurvedic doctors and practitioners have successfully treated this deadly skin disorder. Their treatment was based on the use of a number of herbal plants and so on and henceforth.
So the Leucoderma & Vitiligo ayurvedic cure or the white patches cure, is dependent on increasing immunity and the re-pigmentation or the regeneration of the destructed pigment generating cells. Thus, increasing immunity takes precaution against increase in the disorder and the re pigmentation reverses the damage already done. Over the last couple of years, the ayurvedic treatment of Leucoderma & Vitiligo has been deemed secure and most effective in comparison to even allopathic drugs.
Until a couple of years ago, there wasn't a single cure which was holistic enough to treat leucoderma. Most patients were misguided, misinformed and were prescribed incompatible medicines which just didn't cure the disorder. It was then that the Defense Agriculture Research Laboratory (DARL) conducted extensive research and development of a drug called Lukoskin which was found to be very effective for this impregnable disease. DARL has its core competence in developing herbal products from the high altitude regions of the Himalaya to solve deadly disease and disorders through ayurveda.
