Vitiligo is an autoimmune condition that causes depigmentation of sections of skin. It occurs when melanocytes, the cells responsible for skin pigmentation, are damaged or destroyed by the autoimmune attack. Vitiligo tends to appear in symmetric patches sometimes covering large areas of the body.
What is Vitiligo?
Vitiligo is a skin condition that causes white patches to appear on the skin. Most parts of the body are vulnerable to this skin condition.
Causes of Vitiligo?
The skin’s characteristic color is facilitated by melanin pigment. When the pigment-forming cells (melanocytes) are destroyed, it results in loss of pigment in the skin. Medical experts have linked this to the autoimmune condition – a condition where the immune system mistakenly destroys its own cells instead of foreign substances such as bacterial and viral agents.
What are the Symptoms of Vitiligo?
Symptoms would usually include frequency of pigment loss on various areas of the skin. When the white patches appear initially, it can be accompanied by a steady period without the condition progressing. Afterward, the affected individual may observe more cycles of pigment loss. The most vulnerable parts of the skin include the areas exposed to sun, areas where injury has been previously sustained, body folds (e.g. armpits), and areas surrounding body openings. The eyelids and hair can also be affected by Vitiligo.
Is there an effective Solution?
1. The Medical Approach
As with most other autoimmune conditions, traditional medicine adopts a symptomatic approach in treating Vitiligo, rather than addressing and elimination the protected the root-cause. UV light therapy and corticosteroid creams are often prescribed. These treatments do not cure the root-cause of Vitiligo which is the mis-firing mode of a struggling immune system classified as autoimmunity.
Is there a better Solution?
Yes, an all-natural approach…
2. The Natural Approach
There’s a natural alternative for treating the root-cause of the autoimmune response that triggers Vitiligo. DigestaCure is an all-natural solution for autoimmune disorders of all types including Vitiligo.
DigestaCure deals with the root-cause of Vitiligo, “Autoimmunity”, which is the misfiring, attacking mode of a struggling immune system.
