What is Vitiligo?

Vitiligo (leucoderma) is a skin condition characterized by white patches that appear due to the deficiency of the color imparting skin pigment- melanin.

Vitiligo is mainly considered an autoimmune disorder where the body destroys its pigmented cells (melanocytes) failing to recognize them as its own. Of course hormonal imbalances, genetic predisposition and the presence of other autoimmune diseases such as hypothyroidism, diabetes, etc could be causative factors as well.

Treatment options for Vitiligo

Presently, conventional treatments such as corticosteroid creams, lotions, PUVA therapy, surgery and micropigmentation are recommended; however, they have yielded limited results since they only offer symptomatic relief and do nothing to address the root cause of your problem. Moreover, most of the treatments are associated with a host of unpleasant side effects. With limited options available in modern medicine, scientists and research doctors have started testing alternate ways of managing this condition. Numerous studies have been conducted on natural ingredients such as evidence based herbs and homeopathic attenuations in a bid to find an effective treatment protocol.

Can Picrorhiza kurroa Cure Vitiligo?

Several herbs have shown promising results in various clinical trials done to evaluate their efficacy in conditions like Vitiligo and one of them is Picrorhiza kurroa that is already traditionally used in the ayurvedic system of medicine to promote liver and skin health.

Picrorhiza Kurroa is an ayurvedic herb also commonly known as Kutki or Kutaki. Its therapeutic properties are attributed to two molecules namely picroside I and picroside II and collectively the active molecules are called kutkin or picroliv.

Now, What Makes Picrorhiza Kurroa a Remarkably Promising Herb?

Before we get to why picrorhiza has garnered the attention of doctors looking for a vitiligo cure, let’s look at the traditional uses picrorhiza is famous for.

Various clinical studies have highlighted that the herb possesses antibacterial, antiperiodic, purging, detoxifying,  laxative, stomachic and bitter tonic, hepatoprotective, anti-cholestatic (relieves obstruction of bile salts), anti-inflammatory, anti-allergy, antioxidant, rejuvenating, and  immunomodulating properties. This means that this plant packs in quite a punch of healthifying attributes that can be potentially useful in alleviating conditions affecting the body.

In fact, you will find numerous instances of traditional health practitioners recommending this herb for liver and upper respiratory tract concerns.

Research scientists have also tested this herb in conditions like fevers, chronic diarrhea, constipation, dyspepsia, jaundice, bronchial asthma, liver toxicity, and viral hepatitis, apart from vitiligo and psoriasis.

Can a Vitiligo Patient Obtain Relief With Picrorhiza kurroa?

Vitiligo destroys pigment cells in your body. The autoimmune theory states that the progressive destruction of melanocytes occurs when the body mistakes the melanocytes as foreign bodies and releases immune cells to get rid of them and this has been unanimously accepted by the medical fraternity. This theory is also based on the fact that circulating melanocyte-specific antibodies are found in vitiligo patients.

In addition, activated CD8+ T cells (they are important for killing malignant and virally infected cells as well as restrain certain types of immune response) have also been found in vitiligo lesions. Therefore, the autoimmune attack on melanocytes involves both humoral and cellular immunity.

So, the best way to deal with this condition is to stop the body from attacking its own cells, balancing any disturbance in the body that can be a proponent to developing vitiligo and protecting, nourishing and rejuvenating the skin.

Picrorhiza’s anti-inflammatory property stops the release of cytokines that initiate inflammation and disturb melanocyte functioning. Its detoxifying and cleansing properties help improve liver and skin health, whereas its immunomodulatory property helps control hypersensitivity, antibody- mediated responses, and phagocytic activity. Therefore, the versatile properties of picrorhiza potentially prevent melanocytes from being destroyed, expel toxins and rejuvenate skin health. In fact, a preliminary trial also showed that Picrorhiza extract, in combination with the drug methoxsalen, was able to hasten recovery from vitiligo faster than the combination of methoxsalen and sun exposure alone.
