What is Vitiligo?

Vitiligo is a condition of the skin which causes loss of pigmentation resulting in white patches of skin appearing throughout the body.

Who Can Get It?

Just about anyone is at risk for developing it. It's prevalent among all races and it equally affects both genders. However, there are certain factors which can increase your chances of developing this condition. Generally, those who have vitiligo or autoimmune conditions within the family, are at greater risk of developing it themselves.

How Common is It?

About 1-2% of the world's population develops vitiligo between the ages of 10-30. In North America alone, it's an estimated 2-5 million that have this condition.

How is It Diagnosed?

Vitiligo is usually diagnosed by a doctor after a physical examination followed by inspection of the patient's medical history. A blood test or biopsy is also done in order to rule out other possibilities.

What is The Cause?

The exact cause is still yet to be determined by medical experts. However, there are various factors which may contribute to this disease: autoimmune reactions, genetics, sunburn and stress.

What Are The Symptoms?

The most common symptom is white patches of skin which develops of various parts of the body. Over time, these white patches will grow larger in size. The common place for it to first appear, include the face, hands, arms, lips, feet and any other sun exposed area. It's not uncommon for it to quickly spread to other areas not mentioned above.

Is it a Contagious Disease?


How Do You Treat Vitiligo?

There are many conventional treatment methods including: oral corticosteroids, topical corticosteroids, UV light therapy, skin grafting, skin tattooing, and skin de-pigmentation of the surrounding skin (to match the color of your affected areas).

How Effective Are Conventional Treatments?

There are both pros and cons of conventional medical treatment, however, none of these methods can produce guaranteed results.

Steroids may improve the condition of the skin when used long-term; however, this is generally not recommended because of the side effects associated with long term use.

Although it can be effective to a certain extent, light therapy is very time consuming and can carry a risk of skin burn, eye damage, and increased susceptibility to skin cancer.

Skin grafting is very effective in theory, but in reality, it can have many complications including: rejection of the grafted skin, infection, and cobblestone effect (an abnormal appearance of the skin)

Is There a Natural Treatment Option for Vitiligo?

The simple answer is yes; a Vitiligo natural treatment does exist. There have even been a number of research papers published that indicate that in scientific trials, patients have been cured naturally by using a combination of vitamins and herbal extracts. A lot of the research carried out in Sweden reports that dietary changes can also have a very noticeable effect.

Vitiligo Treatment - Is There a Natural Cure?

After reading this article, you're going to learn about a simple and natural, step-by-step treatment for vitiligo that has nothing to do with surgery or any of those ineffective, medical therapies.

Vitiligo is a known skin condition which affects over 100 million individuals worldwide, regardless of their race or gender. It causes white patches of skin to appear on various body parts, usually around sun exposed areas like the hands, feet, face and armpit.

These white patches of skin are also known to spread at varying speeds. It can be a slow process that happens over the course of years, or in some cases, in a matter of days.

The Problem with Medical Treatments

Most of the medical treatments available right now are really expensive, and the worst part is, they're ineffective and carry a pretty high risk of side effects. The reason so many people resort to these ineffective treatments is because they're often desperate and willing to pay anything for a chance to be cured.

Each and every year, pharmaceutical companies come out with their new, "improved", and even more expensive medical therapies, which are just as ineffective as the last. The only thing that seems to really improve is their profit margin.

As a matter of fact, even reported that, in 2011 alone, the vitiligo therapeutics market was worth around $1.4 Billion. This is estimated to reach $2.7 billion in 2019, which is pretty much doubling the profit, of this already lucrative industry.

After doing some research, I felt it was my duty and responsibility to inform people that there is a better alternative for treating vitiligo that doesn't involve any expensive surgery or medication.

What Most Medical Doctors Don't Tell You

At first I was surprised that doctors weren't telling patients about this, but after researching a bit more, it finally started to make more sense.

Did you know that for each patient a doctor treats for vitiligo, it brings in an average of $2000-$4000 per year?

So what does this mean?

It means that vitiligo patients are one of the most profitable patients a doctor can have...

The Good News

The good news is that there really is a natural treatment for vitiligo.

It involves consuming certain herbal extracts and vitamins along with a few dietary and lifestyle modifications.

The Bad News

This natural cure for vitiligo is nothing "new" or "cutting-edge". In fact, scientists have published reports about ways to cure vitiligo (within a matter of weeks) using only natural extracts and nutrients.

But here is the really shocking part.

These reports were published back in the 1980s and again in the 1990s!

Bedi KL, Zutshi U, Chopra CL, et al. Picrorhiza kurroa, an ayervedic herb, may potentiate photochemotherapy in vitiligo. J Ethnopharmacol . 1989;27:347-352. More info:

Jin QX, Wj M, Zs D et al (1983). Clinical efficacy observation of combined treatment with chinese traditional medicine and western medicine for 407 cases of vitiligo. 12:9–11 More info

Several of these reports showed how a single herb and vitamin could stop the spread of vitiligo instantly and even cure it completely within a few weeks... with no side effects at all.

Now you're probably thinking that huge finding such as this would have made it big on the news, right? Well, that doesn't seem to be the case.

It didn't make any logical sense to me either, until I finally came to the realization that pharmaceutical and medical industries are predominantly driven by profit, and their top priority is NOT to the benefit of the patient.

Truth About The "Latest Cutting-Edge" Options

Have you ever wondered why they're always designing new and expensive drugs, which only have limited effectiveness? Drugs that require you to take them continuously year after year? I can tell you one thing... it's a pretty good combination for ensuring long-term and ever-increasing profit margins.

A quick example of shameless, large-scale profiteering is the prescription of Statins. Statins is prescribed for anyone, even those with only borderline high-cholesterol. It's not a very effective drug unless your taking it for the side effects.

Here's the real kicker. Once you start taking it, you'll have to keep taking it your entire life. Surprised?

Just like with many other treatments, vitiligo treatment is no different. There aren't that many medical professionals or individuals within the industry that will encourage you to search for a natural cure. Especially, if the cure will cost you a few dollars worth of supplementation instead of hundreds or thousands you could be paying to try out their new "cutting-edge" treatment option.

I hope that after reading this article, you'll make the conscious decision to seek out more information on your own. I recommend doing your own research and coming up with your own conclusions instead of relying on what large industries tell you. There's so much more to vitiligo treatment than what you're probably used to hearing.
