Vitiligo is a disease that causes loss of skin color in patches where the discolored areas usually get bigger with time. The condition is not restricted to a specific part of a body, rather can affect any part of the body including the hair and inside of the mouth. Normally, the color of our hair and skin is determined by melanin, although vitiligo occurs when the cells that produce melanin either die or stop functioning. The patchy loss of skin color usually appears on the hands first following the face, genitals and areas around the body openings. Some of the symptoms of vitiligo include premature whitening or graying of the hair on your scalp, eyebrows, beard or eyelashes; also loss of color in the tissues inside your mouth and nose. Though vitiligo starts at any age but generally appears before the age of 30. The areas of the body that get affected due to vitiligo depend upon the type of vitiligo you have. 

All these points aside, vitiligo is not a dangerous or contagious disease and can be completely managed and controlled with the correct remedial measures. Although it is difficult to predict how the disease progresses, sometimes the patches stop forming without treatment or the pigment loss spreads and eventually involves most of your skin. The treatment of vitiligo involves varied options wherein the choice of treatment depends on your age, the areas of skin affected and the rate at which the disease is progressing. 

Of all the treatments for vitiligo, an Ayurvedic approach towards it remains the best. In the Ayurvedic system of medicine, Psoralea corylifolia seeds, also known as bakuchi, are used for the management of vitiligo. Bakuchi is a renowned herb that possesses many therapeutic properties and is used extensively by Ayurvedic scholars in hypopigmentation with optimistic outcomes. It is an herb which contains psoralens, which on exposure to the sun brings out the melanin in the affected areas. Along with bakuchi, haridra is also one a potent drug whose role is to protect the skin from the irritating effects of bakuchi. 

Vitiligo and Ayurveda are interrelated in such a manner that the most complete and best management of vitiligo is available only through Ayurveda. Ayurvedic treatment using Ayurvedic medicines for vitiligo acts on strengthening the immunity of the body, which results in the control of the spreading of spots across the body. The process of pigment production is regularized by using Ayurvedic medicines for vitiligo. Apart from P.corylifolia seeds, some of the ingredients used in Ayurvedic medicines for the management of vitiligo include Ashwagandha, sandal oil, tulsi, nimba, pippali, etc.
