HOW DOES HOMEOPATHY WORK
Homeopathy or homeopathic medicine, is a branch of medical science that first originated in Germany in the late 1700’s. It is a natural treatment course that stems from the belief system that the body can cure itself and is based on two very unconventional theories-
- Like cures like, which means that a disease can be cured by a certain natural substance, plant, or mineral which produces similar symptoms in healthy people.
- Law of minimum dose- Homeopathy greatly advocates the idea of suggesting a lower dose of medication to ensure greater effectiveness. In pursuance of which several homeopathic medicines are very well diluted to ensure no molecules of the original substance gets retained in it.
Homeopathy treatment, unlike conventional or allopathic medication, does not work against the disease. It rather observes the symptoms as the body’s attempt to heal naturally, by treating the individual with a set of symptoms through a regulated dose of potentized medication.
Over the years Homeopathy treatment has also shown progressive results in the cure of vitiligo or leukoderma, which essentially is an autoimmune disorder that causes the skin to lose color and develop white patches, leading to the destruction of melanocytes in the skin.
In response to its natural cure, Homeopathy doctors highly suggest a combination of a healthy diet and lifestyle to detoxify the body, to ensure long-lasting results through homeopathic medication. As a natural, side-effect free and safe form of treatment, Homeopathy aims at slowing down the destruction process of melanocytes and works towards stimulating the re-pigmentation of the existing patches. Patients with Vitiligo are suggested a specific Vitiligo Diet, where in they are asked to avoid the consumption of –
- Excessively sour food, as the sourness might inhibit the production of melanin owing to its acidic tendencies.
- Non-vegetarian food, since these meats or fish can act as foreign bodies to pigment the cells.
- Foods containing artificial food colors and flavoring agents.
- Foods or creams containing hydroquinone, as these contain a prominent depigmenting agent.
Avoid medicines containing gooseberry (Amla) and food items containing soda bi-carb like aerated drinks.
Instead, Vitiligo patients are suggested to switch over to consuming foods rich in zinc like nuts, beans, whole grains and dairy foods and Vitamin B-12 enriched foods like-fortified cereals, whole eggs, swiss cheese, low fat milks and yogurt. Additionally adding foods rich in folate like- asparagus, broccoli, cabbage, kale, spinach and peas can amp up the nutritional value of the food intake.
People suffering from vitiligo are also suggested to consume a bunch of immune-system boosting foods that contain phytochemicals, beta-carotene, and antioxidants, some of them being bananas, apples, chickpeas, figs and dates. For accelerating pigment deposition over skin, it is highly suggested that one should consume a copper glass full of water at least once daily.
