Mental stress increases white patches of vitiligo & leucoderma
In a recent concluded Free Camp on Leucoderma / Vitiligo ( White patches) at OVIHAMS ( Sh. Om Vidya Institute of Homoeopathy & Allied Medical Sciences) RL-1, Ganga Ram Vatika, Tilak Nagar on 7th of May for 3 Hrs. it was observed that Homoeopathy has a near cure for Leucoderma patients, as it has been seen in the number of patients who have been benefited with homoeo treatment.
According to Dr. A.K. Gupta, Founder Director OVIHAMS, Vitiligo cases are on increase due to the excessive use of Synthetics in the form of Food, Medicines and clothes. Though hereditary or family history is another main factor seen . It was noted that 55% Males and 45% were Female and Patients were of all age group the youngest being 6 yrs old girl student and the eldest was 74 yrs old advocate. 80% patients reveled that their White patches increase in numbers and size whenever they are mentally stressed.
Interestingly Injury and Stitches were seen as the precipitating factor only in very sensitive patients. As such it does not causes any problem like pain or itching etc. but carries a Social stigma . For cosmetic reasons people try various methods for quick relief as there are many misconceptions prevailing with this disease . Age and sex has no definite criteria for this problem. The exact cause for the leucoderma is the loss of Melanin in the skin which gives the color to skin.
Dr.A.K.Gupta, who has been Recently conferred with Life Achievement Award , has developed expertise of Homoeopathic treatment in treating such patients said that it is untrue that leucoderma is caused by drinking milk after fish and that intake of white thins like milk and milk products are to be avoided for white patches. Though the excessive use of Sour and citrus food is to be curtailed. There is no short cut treatment for this so, he advised that patients should not keep on changing their doctors and system of medicine very frequently which can do more harm than good. OVIHAMS also offered 20% concession on the Blood Tests etc. for the camp patients. The team of Dr. A.K.Gupta, Dr.Shivani assisted him along with Dr.Anita, Mr.Ashok and Miss Shailly rendered free service and Medicines were also distributed free.
