Leucoderma in literal term means white skin; it is a chronic disorder of the skin where the skin stops producing pigments that color the skin. As a result white patches appear randomly at different locations on the skin. These patches are usually milky white in color and as the time passes may increase in number and size. Leucoderma is not a medical term. It is only a substitute name for vitiligo. Vitiligo is a more common name for this disease in the western world where as in Asia leucoderma and Bars are used more. The Skin is colored in different shades of brown due to a pigment called melanin. Special cells called melanocytes are responsible for the production of melanin. Sometimes, for reasons dubious, the melanocytes stop producing melanin which results in white skin patches.

There are many traditions and explanations by The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) and his infallible successors as to why this happens and all of these explanations have been proven to be the real causes of this disease. They also explained confirmed food cure for leucoderma which is still incurable and the exact cause of the disease is still unknown in medical science.

About 0.5% to 2% of the world’s population currently suffers from leucoderma. Leucoderma is a contagious disease according to the divine knowledge of infallible successors to The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him). Imam Jaffar-e-Sadiq Alaihis Salam The 6th infallible successor to The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) said “keep away from such a person suffering from leprosy or leucoderma (vitiligo), don’t glance at him/her from time to time and be far away from a leper or a person suffering from leucoderma (vitiligo) and never live with such a person as it is a contagious disease.” The Imam (peace be upon him) further said that “matrimony is revocable in cases of insanity, cystocele, leprosy and leucoderma (vitiligo).” So one can be affected by being around another person having it. Patients suffering from leucoderma often are not accepted well in the social world. This often results in the patients suffering from depressive disorders.

A man, as goes the incident, was suffering from leucoderma due to which his whole body and face was covered with white patches. He felt obviously fed up with his life and was very miserable. Abu Ali Fehri after listening to all this told him to go to The Imam Ali Naqi Alahis Salam The 10th infallible successor to The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) by whose prayer he would get cured completely. So this man went and sat on the path by which The Imam would pass by. Presently, he saw The Imam coming and he got up to go near the Imam and greet him. The Imam saw him coming and told him from a distance, “Do not come near, Allah will cure you”. The Imam repeated this sentence thrice and the man dared not go near the Imam.

He came back to Fehri and told him all that had occurred. Abu Ali Fehri said, “The Imam has listened to your prayer and cured you, go home now and you shall be cured.” The man went home and the next morning he got up, there was not a trace of the disease, he was completely cured !!!


As mentioned above, the cause and cure for leucoderma is still not very clear in medical science. However some theories are present and are as follows The first and most supported theory is autoimmune. In this case, the bodies self defense mechanism mistakes the melanocytes as foreign particles and destroys them thus putting melanin production to a halt. There is evidence that points towards this theory and tests are being carried out to determine if this is accurate and how to stop this.

The second theory suggests that the oxidant-antioxidant system of the body is, for an unknown reason, disturbed resulting in loss of melanocytes. A third theory is more based on statistical data than research. Statistics suggest that if a parent has leucoderma, his/her child will have a higher risk of having leucoderma than the rest of the population. So this theory suggests that a genetic factor is present in the causes of this disease. A fourth theory suggests that leucoderma is a direct cause of nerve damage. This can also be true as in a type of leucoderma called as segmental vitiligo, the areas of skin affected are often the areas in contact with the dorsal root of the spinal cord.

The Last Messenger of Almighty God, The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) said “these are the causes you may be affected by leprosy and leucoderma (vitiligo), Eating after you are full, having intercourse during menstruation, taking shower or bath with sun heated water and eating after intercourse without taking shower.”

The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) said “keep away from five types of people, and one of them is a person suffering from leucoderma (vitiligo).”

The Last Messenger of Almighty God The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) said ” if a woman conceives during menses she would give birth to a child suffering from leucoderma or vitiligo.”

Imam Jaffar-e-Sadiq Alaihis Salam The 6th infallible successor to The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) said “eating the fish in night without honey causes Leucoderma or vitiligo”. He (peace be upon him) did not allow his followers to eat the fish in night and advised to use honey in case you ever happen to eat the fish in night to avoid paralysis and leucoderma. Imam (peace be upon him) further said that “Indeed The Honorable The Exalted Almighty God protects our followers from six characteristics: insanity, leprosy, vitiligo, being born out of adultery, having a child born out of adultery, and begging from the people.”

Imam Ali Raza Alaihis Salam The 8th infallible successor to The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) said ” taking the wine of grapes and dates with milk at the same time causes rheumatic pains and leucoderma.”

Treatments in Medical Science.

For medical science It has been very hard to find a proper cure for a disease, the reason to which is still unknown. There are so many leucoderma treatments but none of them are proven 100% successful except the most natural food cure suggested by Imam Jaffar-e-Sadiq Alaihis Salam The 6th infallible successor to The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him).

Using colored creams and tanning creams to hide the patches of skin is a more common method. This hides the patches but requires a lot of time to apply the creams and the drawback is that, it doesnt prevent more spots from appearing.

Steroid creams are also very commonly used. Steroid affects the immune system of the body by weakening it. So when a steroid cream is applied to the skin, the antibodies in the skin are weakened and they stop attacking the melanocytes and melanin production is resumed. It is to be noted that this treatment does not guarantee that the patches will not appear again. Also, steroid creams cannot be used continuously for as long as one wishes to use them. Steroids have serious side-effects which include permanent thinning of the skin and appearance of stretch marks on area of application, which are also permanent. Steroid creams also make the skin less resistant to infections.

A more advanced but complicated method is giving specific medicinal drugs and expose patient to ultra violet light in special UV radiation chambers. This cause serious sunburns and skin freckling. Also it is very time consuming and once again, doesn’t guarantee results.

Even after the very extensive scientific research, the treatments of leucoderma are still very scarce and have not been proven to work for a majority of people in medical science The best patients can do is hide these marks with colored creams but it is to be noted, this only hides these marks and doesn’t stop more patches of white skin from appearing.

Whatever the reason maybe, patients who are dismayed and have lost hope as to the cure of leucoderma need not worry. The true universal saviours of the mankind the infallible successors to The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) have suggested a food cure of this disease which is the easiest, most natural, most effective, most perfect and permanent cure which medical science could not discover so far, you can try and see its amazing results.

Imam Jaffar-e-Sadiq Alaihis Salam The 6th infallible successor to The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) said ” Eating beetroots cooked with beef cures leucoderma (vitiligo).”

  2. Babu KJose says:

    Dear Doctor,
    Please advise many times we should take beetroot in beef for vitligo daily.
    Also is there any miracle remedy for Diabetes?

    Thanks& Regards ,
    Babu K Jose

    • Take at least once in a day regularly beetroots cooked with beef, a regular and continuous use for three months will show you the result. There is no miracle remedy, but taking Arnica 6 a homeopathic medicine three drops in a cup of water twice a day is very beneficial for diabetics, it is anti aging, pain killer, blood thinner, lowers the elevated sugar level, heals the wounds in diabetics, cures the erectyle disfunctions, etc etc, you can use it for long.

Grant me the good of this world and the next, and protect me from the evil of this world and the evil of the next world, and remove from me my suffering, for the affair has vexed me and grieved me…………….and beet root and beef maula said then 100% cure is there dont loose hope
