Mrs. B.G. ( L-8678), 39 years old female came to the clinic to take treatment for vitiligo. In 4 years she had extensive generalized vitiligo on her hands, elbows, forearms, lips, knees, legs, feet and abdomen. Her vitiligo was bilaterally symmetrical and spreading rapidly. Dr Shah advised her to get her thyroid levels done. She had hypothyroidism. (Her TSH level was found to be high-12 micro IU/ml). She also had gastritis since 2 years.
Her appetite was normal. She had craving for sweets. She had profuse perspiration on abdomen especially in summers. She preferred winters. Her urine and bowel movements were normal. Her menses were regular. She had leucorrhea before menses.
She was a house wife. Her husband used to work abroad and would meet her once a year for a month. She would online chat with him daily for 3 hours. She was short tempered and had an extrovert personality. She had no major stress and she loved to cook food. Spends most of her time in taking care of her son and his studies. She had apprehension regarding her vitiligo so does not go out and had not joined her husband abroad because of the same reason.
On maternal side there was strong family history of diabetes and hypertension.
On the basis of these symptoms she was prescribed Carcinosin 200 along with another remedy that has been developed at Life Force for the treatment of vitiligo and hypothyroidism. Within a period of 7 months her thyroid levels have been reported normal. (TSH- 3.48uIU/ml). and there was repigmentation on the forearms while on other areas of the body the condition was stable.
Before treatment (August 2006)
After treatment (February 2007)
This case depicts that homoeopathy works at root level and brings deviations of immunity and harmony of the body back to normalcy. She was not given any thyroid supplements and with homeopathy treatment alone her thyroid levels became normal in about seven months time.
