Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Does it really work?

The question 'does anti-vitiligo really work' is apparently a very simple question, but a very difficult to answer. This question depicts the pain and suffering that a patient has gone through in the search of relief, and it hints at the distrust regarding medicines being sold on line. Both are valid. There is so much sub-standard material for sale on the net, that it becomes vitually impossible to sift the right product out of the garbage. But there are currently no effective means to rectify such malpractices. With this background in mind, it becomes very difficult to give you reasons for believing us. We can assure you about the genuineness of this product but assurance is generally not enough. We can only tell you that the reorder rate for this product currently exceeds 45%. That however does not mean that it shall work in every user.

This is because the complex mechanisms of human body involved in disease generation are still not fully understood even to the modern scientists. We know a lot but we do not know a lot more. Then there are biological differences among individuals, races and regions which may have a bearing on the disease and its progress.

We can hence predict the benefits of a remedy, on statistical basis only. There will always be people who will not respond to a remedy that has been rated at the top in research studies.The same is true for AntiVitiligo. There is a high probability that you will benefit.

Will it cure my vitiligo (Leukoderma)?

As regards Cure in vitiligo(leucoderma), Different people use the term »Cure« in different context. Some use this term for complete eradication of illness from the body, while others are concerned only with repigmentation of the existing spots.

If you mean complete eradication of the disease from you system, that is a tricky matter. Vitiligo(leucoderma) results from a derangement of your normal defense mechanisms against infection. The body starts producing antibodies against pigment producing cells of its own skin. No definite causes are known, but inheritance has a role. This is a generalized abnormality of your immune system, and there are currently no acceptable permanent means to halt this process

The damage to pigment producing cells manifests as patches of skin which have reduced or no pigment. This is what bothers you, and this is where AntiVitiligo Oil works. It currently has the highest rate of success in this regard, and re-orders rate for this product is now exceeding 45%. Once the pigment has been restored locally, it stays there. There have been no reports of local loss of pigment after successful treatment.

All herbal remedies derive ther testimony from the history of their success and safety in hundards of generations over thousands of years (This is usually enough for most people because they generally chose this option only when they have had no luck with the prescription medicine).

It is still virtually impossible to offer scientific explanations for the mechanism of action of any herbal remedy for any purpose. The day such mechanisms are understood with certainity, the remedy shall start being rated as a scientific product in conformity with scientific principles of modern medicine, as has happened with opium and digitalis.

Sunlight/UV light will obviously increase the response, but an occasional patient may show an exaggerated response even to the gentlest medication and get a skin reaction in the form of sunburns.

It is recommended hence that you start using UV/Sunlight for a very short time in the beginning on a limited area, and if the response is favorable you can gradually increase the exposure.

Can i use sunblocks or makeup on the area under treatment.
