Skin Pigmentation

 

It's hard for anyone not suffering from vitiligo to understand the emotional and psychosocial havoc this condition wreaks upon the sufferer.

The change in appearance caused by vitiligo affects various levels of emotional well-being, especially when the condition results in visible white patches on the areas of the body involved in normal, day-to-day interaction. Some individuals with vitiligo suffer from embarrassment, shame, depression, and fear of rejection, both socially and professionally.

As there is no definitive cure for vitiligo, Progressive Health has developed Callumae to provide all sufferers with another effective coping strategy.

Our unique formula helps patients to enhance their physical and emotional status by giving them confidence in knowing that their nutritional needs for the condition are being met.

Vitiligo
Whether used alone or in combination with your current treatment regime, our vitiligo remedy Callumae may work to slow the progression of Vitiligo and help restore normal skin pigmentation.

 

Vitiligo

 

Vitiligo is a fairly common skin disease that is characterized by the destruction of melanocytes. Melanocytes are the cells in the body responsible for pigment, or color. Once they are destroyed the pigment melanin can no longer be produced. These specialized cells are found in various locations throughout the body, including the skin, hair follicles, eyes, mouth, and even some parts of the central nervous system. In persons with vitiligo, white patches or spots that range in size and shape become visible upon the skin. The most common spots for pigment loss include:

  • Body folds
  • Body openings
  • The choroid of the eye
  • Exposed areas
  • Hair
  • Locations of the previous injury

 

Causes

 

Although researchers have yet to establish a definitive cause of vitiligo, there are several different theories that exist.

First, a number of specialists suggest that people with vitiligo develop antibodies that seek and destroy melanocytes in their bodies.

A second theory infers that the melanocytes destroy themselves as a result of abnormal nervous system functioning.

Finally, a large number of experts believe that the greatest determinant resides in one's genetic susceptibility.

12% of families who have one person with vitiligo also have another family member with the condition. Secondary factors, including environmental and emotional stressors, are thought to play influential roles in the onset of this condition within genetically susceptible persons as well.

 

Are You at Risk?

 
As its cause has yet to be determined, the risk factors for vitiligo are extremely difficult to assess. Approximately 1-2% of the World's population suffers from this condition. Vitiligo affects all races, ethnicities, and both sexes, equally. One-half of vitiligo sufferers will experience some pigment loss before the age of 20 and 95% of patients will develop the full condition by age 40.

Risk factors for condition onset may include:
Exposure to certain chemicals
Exposure to phenols, found in various hair coloring products, photography chemicals, and household stains, may trigger vitiligo in genetically susceptible individuals.
Genetic susceptibility, or predisposition
An existing autoimmune disorder 
These may include hyper-, or hypothyroidism (overactive or underactive thyroid gland), adrenocortical insufficiency (the adrenal gland does not produce enough of the hormone called corticosteroid), alopecia areata (patches of baldness), and pernicious anemia (low levels of red blood cells caused by the failure of the body to absorb vitamin B12).

 

Conventional Treatments

 

Vitiligo's impact on the sufferer is not just cosmetic. The condition's impact on physical and emotional well-being has been well documented. There is no cure for the condition, and no one treatment will work for every patient. Conventional treatments are geared towards treating the physical and psychological instabilities caused by the condition.

Experimenting with different therapies ensures that each person with vitiligo will find what works best for them.

Physical Treatments: Today, there are more treatment options available than ever before. Traditional therapies, including the PUVA system and steroid cream, are still being used with varying rates of success. Newer technologies such as narrow-band UVB, Pseudocatalase cream, excimer lasers, skin grafting, and pigment transplantation, topical psoralens, immunomodulators, and nutritional supplementation coupled with UVA therapy, have proven extremely effective in a preliminary study.

Emotional Therapy: Emotional treatments are focused primarily on patient support emotional support systems that influence the patient's ability to manage/cope with this condition.

 

Callumae

 

When used with light therapy, Callumae may help to restore the appearance of your skin.

Research indicates that the ingredients found in Callumae can benefit all vitiligo sufferers, especially when combined with ultraviolet light therapies.

Clinical trials have shown that many important vitamins are lacking in a large number of vitiligo patients, including Folic Acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 - nutrients responsible for pigmentation, energy metabolism, and nervous system function.

Callumae not only includes these vitamins in its unique formula but also employs a synergistic blend of potent botanicals for processes relating to immunological functioning and skin health.

Picrohiza, another unique ingredient to Callumae, has a long tradition of use for immune dysfunction in Ayurvedic medicine. This may prove to be extremely beneficial for patients with vitiligo thought to have an autoimmune component. Callumae also addresses issues of oxidative stress with the inclusion of the potent antioxidants ginkgo biloba and lipoic acid.

Finally, extract from khella (Ammi visnaga) may be useful in re pigmenting the skin of people with vitiligo. In fact, khellin, the active constituent in khella, may work as effectively as some psoralen drugs; stimulating repigmentation of the skin by increasing sensitivity of remaining melanocytes to sunlight.

Regardless of your age, how widespread your vitiligo is, or what conventional treatment you currently use as part of your day-to-day treatment, Callumae can be used to complement any existing therapies. Progressive Health's guarantee gives you confidence in knowing that your body will be provided with the most effective, comprehensive, and potent supplemental option for vitiligo treatment available today.

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

I'm having a difficult time understanding vitiligo because of the medical terminology. What do these terms mean? Depigmentation; PUVA; Melanin.

  • As you've discovered, when dealing with Vitiligo, there are many medical terms used. To lessen the confusion, a list of key terms regarding vitiligo, the skin, and common vitiligo treatments are listed below.

    -Antibodies: Protective proteins that fight infectious agents or other "foreign" invaders.
    -Autoimmune diseases: A disease in which the immune system reacts against the body's own
     organs or tissues.
    -Biopsy: Taking a small sample of skin, or other tissue from the body for study.
    -Depigmentation: A loss of color in the skin and/or mucous membranes, hair, and retina of the eye.
    -Melanin: A yellow, brown, or black pigment that determines skin color and acts as a natural   sunscreen to ultraviolet light (UVAs).
    -Melanocytes: Specialized cells that produce the pigment melanin.
    -Phototherapy: A treatment utilizing ultraviolet light for treating skin conditions, including vitiligo.
     Ultraviolet light is a type of radiation and exists as part of sunlight.
    -Pigment: A substance that provides color to the many cells and tissues of the body. Pigmentation is    the actual coloring of the skin, hair, mucous membranes, and retina.
    -Psoralens: Prescription drugs containing chemicals that react with ultraviolet light and cause the   skin to darken.
    -PUVA: Psoralen and Ultraviolet A Therapy. A combination therapy, patients are exposed first to   psoralens, then to ultraviolet A (UVA) light.
    -Topical steroid therapy: Treatment with a cortisone-like preparation for local use (e.g. cream
     applied to the skin).
I think I may have vitiligo. If I do, will the colorless patches keep spreading?
  • There is no way to know if a given depigmented area on your body will spread. For most vitiligo sufferers, the disorder is progressive - meaning that over time, the patch of uncolored skin will spread to other locations on the body. For some, the process is immediate, while others notice a gradual spreading pattern. However, in some individuals, the depigmentation remains localized and never spreads. 
Other than nutritional supplements like Callumae, what secondary, or alternative, treatments exist?
  • Alternative treatments are limited when it comes to managing vitiligo.

    Physically, there are creams and cosmetics that may be used to camouflage depigmented areas of the skin. These products have proven very effective when dealing with vitiligo that exists in highly exposed areas of the body, like the face or hands. Sunscreens are also integral in the physical management of vitiligo. Using sunscreen prevents the skin from UVA and UVB radiation damage. It also lessens the occurrence of tanning on areas of the skin where melanocytes remain. This is critical for sufferers as minimal tanning makes the difference between normal and depigmented skin far less noticeable.

    Emotionally, counseling and the support of your family and friends remain an integral component in coping with this condition. Counselors, mental health or otherwise, are often utilized to:

    A: become outlets for discussing personal issues that patients may feel are too difficult to convey to anyone else, and

    B: to provide coping mechanisms that keep individual attitudes positive when confronting the physical effects of the condition. If you suffer from vitiligo, the more coping strategies you learn, the more successful you'll be in the physical and emotional management of this condition.
