New

A new item on our Frequently Asked Questions list will discuss the Ayurvedic treatments for vitiligo.

Vitiligo is an immune-mediated, non-inflammatory, non-contagious skin condition. There is no cure, but most patients can manage their skin appearance with medical treatments and natural remedies. 

In Ayurveda, life is the union of body, mind, senses and soul. The primary emphasis is on disease prevention and promoting longevity. It is helpful in chronic, metabolic, and stress-related conditions early in the disease manifestation, before extensive tissue and organ damage has occurred. 

There is an emerging evidence that some Ayurvedic treatments can temporarily improve vitiligo symptoms in its early stage, while causing undesired side-effects.
