Does melagenina-plus work for vitiligo?

It worked for me--I had vitiligo on over 30% of my body. Within two years, my vitiligo was almost completely gone. The key to this treatment seems to be doing it as regularly and methodically as possible.

I would put it on at the same time, twice a day (only once is recommended) and sit under a heat lamp for thirty minutes to let it absorb. I would also get about 2 hours of direct sunlight per day after application of the medicine.

Putting on make up or lotions on the affected areas seems to hinder treatment.

How do you cure vitiligo?

In regards to a Cure for vitiligo, different people use the term "Cure" in a different context.

Some use this term for complete eradication of illness from the body, while others are concerned only with re-pigmentation of the existing spots. You cannot cure or halt it, but you can manage the local manifestations (white patches) using topical or oral treatments.

If you mean complete eradication of the disease from you system, that is a tricky matter. Vitiligo results from a derangement of your normal defense mechanisms against infection. The body starts producing antibodies against pigment producing cells of its own skin. No definite causes are known, and so are the remedies. This is a generalized abnormality of your immune system, and there are currently no acceptable permanent means to halt this process.

The damage to pigment producing cells manifests as patches of skin, which have reduced, or no pigment. This is what bothers you, us and every one else.

If your disease is not widespread, and is limited you can go for a topical treatment. The one I used and found beneficial is the once form where I got this material.

Nothing that's safe or reliable. You may find some organic "remedies" that basically cover it up, but in terms of treating this medical condition, which some dermatologists believe is an auto-immune disease, there are some new therapies and medications that are worth exploring.

Is there a cure for vitiligo in Ayurveda?

  • There is no "cure" for vitiligo there are treatments such as UVA light and other such treatments but they are not guaranteed to work. The larger area the vitiligo covers the more difficult it is to treat it because there are so few treatments. (It also depends where you are as too what treatment you are given or you can get.) Dubia has good treatments I hear. The UK also has some good cover creme and other treatments.
  • The person who said that there isnor sure is wrong. There is no disease uncurable in this health world. There is a herbal formula which works at its best to relieve the symptoms of vitilgo. Pigmento tablets are the blessing of ayurveda that is being created after extensive researches done by well renowned Ayurvedic doctors and research scholars. Pigmento is extremely effective in treating problems like leucoderma, white patches, virtiligo and uneven pigmentations that is making you appear bad and exceptional among many.
  • I am an MD {AYURVEDA} and there is very effective treatment of Vitiligo in Ayurveda. Blood Purifiers : As Svitra (Vitiligo) is a disease of Rakta Vikrati(Auto immune disorder)Therefore blood purifying drugs like Curcuma longa ; Eclipta Alba ;Tinospora Cordifolia ; Hemidascus indicus; Acacia catechu; Acaranthes aspera are used to redress the blood morbidity. B. Ras Aushadhi (Herbo-mineral drugs): it includes chiefly Ras Manikya, Taal Sindur, Sameer Pannag Ras, and Talkeshwar Ras. These drugs act like an Immuno Supressant and usually used in those patient where spread of disease is very fast to arrest the spread of disease. TAMRA Bhasm; KASHISH Bhasm; are also used to initiate repigmentation.
After initiation of repigmentation; treatment must be continued till the desired complete repigmentation of all the lesions is achieved. But some stubborn lesions especially of mucosal surface of palms and fingers tips; sometimes respond very poorly or incomplete.

These residual re-pigmented area can be subjected to camouflage. This paste, made from Mehndi (Henna) leaves, is applied to the affected area. It is made from root of Plumbago Zeylenica in absolute alcohol and is painted over skin. This imparts natural colour which last for two or four days.

  • I have cured a number of Vitiligo / Leucoderma / white patches cases with the help of newly invented Ayurveda scanning technology, known as Electro Tridosha Graphy ; ETG AyurvedaScan system. Treatment basing on the line of the findings of the ETG AyurvedaScan Report cures from the internal to perifery.In my cases , I have seen that most of the patients suffering from internal disorders, which are not traceable and the physican makes mistakes to cure the deviation of the health, unknowingly because of the lack of correct diagnosis.

ETG AyurvedaScan provides a correct picture of the patient and thus correct diagnosis selects the right drugs to cure the Vitiligo or any ailments.

Yes, it takes a time say, few months to one or two years for total cure, but cure is certain snd promised.

How do I get Vitiligo?

Vitiligo medically known as achromia, which means loss of color. Vitiligo is a disorder in which white patches of skin appear on different parts of the body. Vitiligo is more commonly known as leucoderma, which simply means white (leuco) skin (derma), i.e. a skin disorder where it loses its normal coloration. This happens because the cells that make pigment (color) in the skin are destroyed.
