Vitiligo-leucoderma Causes


The cause is not known. Vitiligo may be an autoimmune disease- when your immune system mistakenly attacks some part of your own body. In vitiligo, the immune system may destroy the melanocytes (cells which give colour to hair and skin) in the skin. It is also possible that one or more genes may make a person more likely to get the disorder. 1,2,3

Ayurvedic texts describe the following factors as the direct or indirect reasons for vilitigo (shwitra):6

  • Viruddhahara (incompatible food)
  • Chardivegadharana (suppression of vomiting)
  • Atibhojana (excess food intake)
  • Atyamla, Lavana, Madhura, Katu Rasa Sevana (intake of sour, sweet, salt, and pungent food excessively)
  • Navanna, dadhi, matsyabhakshana (intake of fresh grains, curd, and fish – that are heavy on digestion)
  • Sice Ayurveda has a spiritual aspect, it also considers factors like Vipra‑guru gharshana (teasing and disrespecting the elders), and Paap-karma (sinful acts), etc. in etiology.
