Why Integrative Medicine is The Future of Vitiligo
What does integrative medicine mean? Integration means the involvement of two branches of science coming together in a holistic way to treat the patient’s disease from inside out and not just attack the symptom of the disease. In our experience, patients initially contact a modern medicine practioner that is an allopathic practioner but since the disease is in a spreading stage, doctors often prescribe steroids or immunosuppressants to control the disease spread. This usually leads to a disease flare up once the patients stops the treatment. You can safely use allopathy only for one to two years before you develop side effects. You NEED integration for vitiligo.
After this incident, in our 25 years of experience providing the best Leucoderma treatment in India, patients try safer options i.e. Homeopathy or Ayurveda. With homeopathy, patients are often told that the disease might aggravate at first and then subside. What happens is quite obvious – disease spreads and the patient gets worried. This leads to further stress that can aggravate the disease more. As mentioned in our ayurvedic literature, stress is an aggravating factor for vitiligo.
A great advantage of using allopathic medicine along with ayurvedic medicine is the option of reducing the side effects that are so commonly encountered with allopathic medicines. After decades of expertise in treating vitiligo, Dr. Dhawan now gives the best Leucoderma treatment in India due to his knowledge and expertise on integrative medicine.
