Vitiligo is a disorder which is not uncommon. It is actually a skin disorder whose exact cause is yet to be identified though the scientific community, at large, believes that it is caused chiefly owing to some imbalances in the body like the aggressive behavior of the autoimmune system. It is perhaps for this reason that Unani treatment methods have been quite successful to cure this dreaded skin problem.
When one suffers from vitiligo, his/her skin turns whitish in full or in part. In most cases, a part of the person's skin turns whitish or colorless which is owing to the death or absence of melanocytes (the skin cells). It can affect any area of the body including the face, the neck, the back, the hands and the legs. They can look very hideous if they develop on the faces or any visible part of the body and can be a big turn-off for the opposite sex. Unfortunately, the conventional medical science hasn't been able to find a full-proof treatment method for this disorder and in most cases the patient has to live with such whitish skin for the rest of his/her life.
What conventional medicine has failed in, Unani treatment methods have succeeded in. Unani science has clandestinely been practiced for centuries in certain parts of the world. It aims at creating a right balance in the body as regards to humours, insulin, hormones and other releases. Since unani medicine for vitiligo offers greater chance for permanent cure, it is becoming increasingly popular.
The healers of Unani medicine enjoy the expertise to work over certain neural points of the body so as to release or impede the flow of the essential body releases which play a vital role in the autoimmune system of the body. There is a strong likelihood that patients of vitiligo will experience some improvement in just a month after they start using Unani treatment methods. Over the course of time, these methods promise to make the skin as normal as possible by prompting the body to produce melanocytes in the affected area or areas.
Vitiligo can also be caused or aggravated by stressful life. So, the unani medicine for vitiligo and other therapies are aimed towards reducing general stress and towards increasing positivity.
While conventional medicine does try to offer certain surgical remedies without any assurance, they are extremely costly and still offer very less hope. In contrast, Unani medicine is cost-effective and is much more promising.
