Homeopathic diet for vitiligo patients

homeopathic treatment for white spots on skin

Let’s understand what vitiligo is

Vitiligo is an autoimmune condition characterised by the loss of skin colour, resulting in milky White Patches on the Skin. This happens when melanocytes—the cells that produce pigment—are mistakenly targeted and destroyed by the immune system. Although it can affect any part of the body, it commonly affects the hands, feet, elbows, knees, face, and genitals. Some people may also witness inflammation or swelling of the eye and hearing loss. It can affect individuals of all races; it is more common in individuals with darker skin.

Foods to avoid in vitiligo.

If you are taking homeopathy treatment for vitiligo, then to prevent vitiligo, you are asked to avoid many food items because if you include those food items in your diet, then symptoms of your condition and the associated problems can become severe. Your vitiligo patches can spread all over the body, so you should take care of such things. Below are some things you should avoid including in your diet:

  • If you are undergoing Vitiligo homeopathic treatment, the doctors will forbid you to eat some vegetables like brinjal, potato and some sour foods like tomatoes, lemons, fruits like oranges, and grapes because these reduce the effect of the medicines.
  • Raw Onion: You are prohibited from eating this. But you can consume it in a limited quantity after cooking it. 
  • Non-veg: You should avoid chicken, mutton, etc.
  • White salt: Avoid its consumption, but you can include black salt/ rock salt in your diet instead.
  • Alcohol: Consuming it can further increase your problem, due to which you may have to face many difficulties.
  • Egg: You can eat egg whites once a week. But, if possible, you should avoid it.
  • Jaggery: It can cause constipation in your stomach. Due to many problems, your immune system becomes hyperactive, which can increase your white spots.
  • Curd: People think that eating curd does not cause any problems. But here, you are wrong. If you are eating curd during vitiligo, then you may have to face more severe problems. That is why vitiligo patients are prohibited from eating curd as there are chances that their white spots may increase due to it.
