USE OF BABCHI SEEDS WITHOUT SUPERVISION IS DANGEROUS

Bakuchi is a plant mentioned in Ayurvedic text books and its uses have been mentioned 4000 years ago.This plant is a native of India, Bangladesh and Srilanka and its uses have been mentioned in treating vitiligo or leucoderma.seeds are black and are mainly used in treatment for vitiligo. This is being used as home remedy and seeds are soaked in water overnight and water is consumed in morning and some patients are also applying paste made of these seeds.

This have been practice since centuries. patients are advised to sit in sun for some time after using babchi seeds.In most of cases vitiligo skin turns pink after sun exposure after u have used babchi .In most of cases if hair on white patch are black there starts repigmentation and patient is happy and he continue to use batch seeds for long durations without consulting a doctor.

Kayakalp global skin clinic is specialize clinic for treating vitiligo. More than 20 thousand patients suffering from vitiligo has been treated since last 15 years .

CAUSION USE OF BABCHI CAN DEVELOP VISION LOSS

Babchi or psorlia corylifoliaI contain psorlens in their seeds. In modern days psorlen found in babchi seeds can be prepared in laboratory. This compound is called Methoxsalen and is found in melanocyl tablets which are used for treating vitiligo.

At Kayakalp global skin clinic we have done clinical studies on patients who are using babchi seeds (psorlins)and or patient who had used melanocyl tablets (methoxsalen) for longer durations. We have found that many patients develop cataract after prolong use of babchi.

When we consume babchi our skin become more sensitive to ultraviolet light from sun. Our skin absorbs more light and this helps in recovery of white patches but problem is that our eyes also start absorbing more light and this is very dangerous and long term use causes cataract.

So psorlia corylifolia or Babchi seeds should be used under guidance of a expert doctor and should not be used as home remedy.

Doses of extract of psorlia is 300mg to 600 mg /day depending upon the weight of patient. Best ayurvedic treatment for vitiligo is available at Kayakp Global skin clinic and you can consult herbal vitiligo specialist at clinic.

External use of batchi seeds is not harmful except in some patients where skin can become very red and itchy and in some cases it can develop blisters. We have observed that treatment should be done under guidance of best vitiligo doctor and results will be fast.

Most of time self medication can give some results but perfect matching repigmentation can be achieved under proper supervisor only. At Kayakalp global we have developed external applications with psorlia, Aloe, Blackpepper and other herbs which act twice as quick as compared to using babchi alone. Other reported side effects of psorlens are Liver toxicity, Skin cancer and other gastric problems so it is advised to be safe than sorry.

 

 

 

DISTRESSING ASPECT OF USE OF PUVA IN VITILIGO

Vitiligo is an autoimmune disorder triggered due to genetic and stressful conditions.

This is devastating mental stress causing disorder .Most daunting part starts when the patient visits his dermatologist and doctor told him that there are limited treatment options available.

Condition is more serious if the patient is a child because of limited number of treatment options and drug safety levels.

Main treatment consist of immune suppressants ,steroids, Psorlins ,Tacrolimus, Babchi,Ayurveda and sun exposure

PUVA therapy is one of the mainstay of treatment in vitiligo .Patient is advised to take few medicines and asked to stand in a PUVA chamber for some time.

This makes skin color change to pink and re-pigmentation begins in the affected areas.

MAIN CONCERN

Practical problem arises in patients with patches on non hairy areas. If white patches are present on hands ,feet and ankle and if the patient is using PUVA light it will make the things worse.There will be no recovery in white patches and the surrounding skin of white patch will become darker.

Note this picture.

(Note the color of his abdomen is fair but color of hands had turned darker. Patient used PUVA light on hands)

White patches will be more visible if we use PUVA in patients with Acrofacial vitiligo or vitiligo of fingertips and lips.So PUVA should be used for white patches that have black hair on it.

At kayakalp global we have developed special techniques to treat such patients without PUVA light. we have developed a topical oil which when applied on the body for 5-10 minutes 3 times a day gives far better results compared to PUVA light.

PUVA also comes with the added fear of skin cancer , but we have not witnessed a single case of skin cancer due to PUVA among our 22000 cases spanning across 15 years so far.

Full body PUVA if used properly is capable of stopping the spread of disease for short durations.

Therefore it is advised to use PUVA for full body vitiligo and not vitiligo affecting hands and feet.
