Although scientists haven’t pinpointed an exact cause of the condition, it is believe that conditions such as hyperthyroidism, adrenocortical insufficiency, alopecia areata and pernicious anemia are somehow linked to the development of the depigmentation. There’s also a 5 to 7 percent risk of vitiligo being passed to children, although for most vitiligo patients there isn’t a family history of it.
Commonly the vitiligo patient is presented by the dermatologist with a few treatment options out of which none is a 100% guarantee to work, although are as expensive as several thousands of dollars. Surgery, de-pigmentation, the excimer laser, the UV therapy and the topical corticosteroid treatment are the first treatment methods vitiligo patients attempt when they can afford the money and can withstand the side-effects and risks.
Hence it’s almost no surprise that natural vitiligo treatments have become so popular lately, as most these promise results within 60 days and are considerably more affordable than common treatments.
Even when not completely convinced the natural treatment will cure their vitiligo, patients are still appealed by the lack of side-effects and overall enhancement of their health. For adolescents and young adults, a natural approach to their condition helps with the overall emotional state and mental health, as depression is common among these vitiligo patients.
