Book Review

Vitiligo cures ... a clinically illustrated guide

By Dr. R. Gnanasambandam, MD(hom)


         Every practitioner irrespective of the system of medicine he or she pursues, has this delicate task of making the sufferers of vitiligo understand the essentials of this ailment and to convince the patient and family members of its non-contagious nature. Such is the social stigma confronting these patients that so many well-educated families have fallen apart due to it.

         Dr. Gnanasambandam, with his long years of practice and experience in treating a variety of autoimmune disorders, has done well to publish a book on the topic. It is truly a guide to all stakeholders – the patients, the family, the practitioners and especially students. Basic information on all possible doubts is available in this book. More time is often consumed in allaying fears and doubts of the patients than in actual case-taking. This book effectively covers answers to most such FAQs.

         In less than a hundred little pages the author has given all necessary information in neat chapters following a logical sequence from understanding of the skin to the disease and its treatment with Homoeopathy. After a similar work in Tamil, this is a natural sequel.

The photographs showing various patterns of vitiligo as well as the before and after photographs of patients treated with Homoeopathy are self-explanatory and evidence enough to convince one of the effectiveness of Homoeopathy in such conditions.

It would be wonderful if a future work encompassing more of Homoeopathic material were published with the professional reader in mind.
