A 19-years-old male, Mr. P.R.S. (PIN: 23688) visited Life Force on 24th September 2014 with a complaint of vitiligo. The patient was suffering from vitiligo since one year. At the time of consultation, a few white spots were noticed on his elbows, thighs, legs, right ankle joint, left feet, & both the nipples. He had already taken laser therapy, UV therapy, & steroid for it but didn’t get any satisfactory result.
Apart from vitiligo, he was also suffering from acidity for three years & G6PD deficiency. His G6PD deficiency was diagnosed three years back due to some incorrect prescription of medicine during his malaria. For both the complaints, he was not taking any conventional medicine.
The patient was non-vegetarian by diet. His appetite was normal. He liked the sour food a lot, but he didn’t like salty things. He was also fond of chicken and chocolates. His thirst was less than average. His perspiration was average. He was a hot patient. His urine, bowel, and sleep were normal. There was no specific dream.

His paternal grandfather was suffering from hypothyroidism and hypertension. His paternal grandmother was suffering from diabetes, hypothyroidism, and cervical spondylitis. His maternal grandfather had hypertension, and his maternal grandmother had a headache. His uncle was suffering from cervical spondylitis.

He was the student of 11th class. His father was doing the business, and he was a government contractor in PWD. His mother was a homemaker. His sister was studying in 8th std. His grandfather was also doing the same business. His grandmother was a homemaker.

After studying his detailed case history, he was prescribed research-based molecule for his vitiligo complaint.
After two months of medication on 26th November 2014, when the patient gave his follow-up, he experienced some aggravation in his spots on the hands and elbows. His other spots were stable. No new spots had appeared. His acidity was also as it is. In his blood report, Vitamin D and B12 were deficient so he was advised to start its supplements.
A few months later on 1st July 2015, he gave his feedback. Some improvement was observed on his chest-nipple spot. But, a few spots had aggravated. His acidity had improved by more than 75%.
Later, on his follow-up on 12th January 2016, there was no change in his vitiligo spots. Two small spots had appeared on his right hand. His relief from acidity was good. As there was no change in his vitiligo spot, Dr. Shah did the required changes in his medicine.
On 15th September 2016, he informed about his condition. His vitiligo spots on his eye, thigh, genital, and right ear had slightly aggravated. His other spots were in the same state. But, his acidity was totally cured.
On 9th January 2017, he informed a slight improvement in his condition. In his vitiligo spots, re-pigmentation was observed. No new spots had appeared, & his old spots were in the stable state.
A few months later on 8th May 2017, when he gave his feedback, some improvement was seen in his condition. Re-pigmentation had appeared on his eye’s spot. His other spots were in the stable state. He didn’t face any episode of acidity for a few months.
On 23rd October 2017, when he gave his follow-up, an improvement was observed in his spots on the hands, leg, & eye. No new spots had appeared, & no further spread of the spots was observed. His disease was in good condition.
On 5th May 2018, he informed about his condition. His disease was improved by more than 60%. Spots on his elbows, legs, eye, & chest showed re-pigmentation. No new spots had formed. The patient was satisfied with the treatment.
A few months later 7th October 2018, when he visited at center and gave his follow-up, his condition was drastically improved. His disease was improved by more than 70%. All his spots on the legs, hands, elbow, eye, and chest-nipple were showing re-pigmentation, and his spots were improved by more than 90%. But, his genital spot and left chest-nipple spot were as it is. There was no other complaint.
He is advised to continue our medicine for further recovery.
This case illustrates that homeopathy is highly effective in treating vitiligo incredibly and safely without any side-effects.
