I have struggled with vitiligo for a little more than the last 10 years of my life. It started small and I did not pay much attention to it. I saw small white patches inside my mouth initially but thought nothing of it. However, it started to spread. I could see it spread from my face to my arms and my torso, which is when my panic set in. I have visited as many doctors as I possibly can to help me with this skin condition. All doctors have their treatment methods but none of them seemed to work on me.
Vitiligo is a skin disorder that causes white patches of skin to appear on different parts of the body. Common areas include the body parts most exposed to the sun (such as the hands, face, and feet) as well as areas such as the armpits and the genital region. The patches tend to spread, sometimes very slowly over several years and sometimes in a matter of days.
Vitiligo affects about 100 million people worldwide. In the United States and Europe, the prevalence is estimated to be about 1% of the population. It affects all races and both genders equally.
Medical treatments for vitiligo are notoriously expensive, ineffective, and associated with a high risk of side effects. Unfortunately, these people with this condition are often desperate for a cure and are willing to pay any price tag, even when they are told about the problems and limitations of the therapies. The pharmaceutical industry keeps coming up with new, more expensive, and still ineffective therapies every year. And, the profits for the industry keep increasing…
In fact, according to ASDReports.com, in 2011 the vitiligo therapeutics market was estimated to be worth $1.4 billion. By 2019, it is estimated that this market will grow to $2.7 billion, in other words, doubling the profit and this already lucrative niche.
Knowing this, if I had to tell you that there was a way to cure vitiligo naturally, without using any medications, special therapy, or surgery…would you be surprised that no doctor is telling you about it? Of course not! In fact, each patient that a doctor treats for vitiligo brings in on average $2,000 to $4,000 yearly, making them one of the most profitable patients to have.
Well, guess what, there is such a cure! And it only involves the use of herbal extracts, vitamin supplementation, and some dietary and lifestyle changes.
And that’s not all. You see, this is not ‘new’, or ‘cutting-edge research. Not at all – in fact, medical scientists have published reports about how they cured vitiligo in just a few weeks using only natural extracts and nutrients as early as the 1980s! And again in the 1990s, there were several reports by Swedish doctors about how a single herb and/or vitamin supplementation can halt the spread of vitiligo immediately and cure it completely in a matter of weeks with zero side effects.
Now, you may expect such great findings to make big news right? Not so. You see, the pharmaceutical and medical industry is driven by profits, not benefits to patients. That’s why they keep designing expensive drugs, of limited effectiveness, and that need to be taken continuously for years. That’s the perfect combination for ensuring ever-increasing profits.
An example of such shameless profiteering on a large scale is the wide prescription of statins for anyone with even borderline high cholesterol. Statins actually have very limited effectiveness, are associated with many side-effects, and…guess what…once a person starts taking them, they will need to keep taking them for their whole lives! Not so surprising is it? Same with vitiligo cures – no medical professional or anyone involved in the industry will want you to discover that you can cure yourself of vitiligo for just a few dollars worth of supplements when they can get you to pay thousands for their “latest technology” treatments!
Well, now you know better…

What is Vitiligo? Vitiligo is a skin condition characterized by loss of pigment; this results in white patches appearing on the skin and mucus membranes.
Who Is At Risk Of Developing Vitiligo? Anyone can develop vitiligo and both genders have an equal chance of getting vitiligo. All races exhibit a similar prevalence of this condition. However, you are more likely to develop vitiligo if a parent has it if you or someone in your family has an autoimmune condition (such as hyperthyroidism). If you experienced graying of hair before the age of 35.
What Is The Prevalence of Vitiligo? Vitiligo affects 1 to 2% of the population worldwide and it is estimated that between two to five million Americans have the condition. Generally, vitiligo develops between the ages of 10 to 30.
What Causes Vitiligo? The symptoms of vitiligo arise because the melanocytes (the cells that produce pigment which gives the skin its color) are either destroyed or stop functioning. What causes this to happen is still debatable – it may be the result of an autoimmune reaction, genetics, or possibly an event such as sunburn or emotional stress.
Is Vitiligo Contagious? No, vitiligo is not contagious.
What Are the Symptoms of Vitiligo? People with vitiligo exhibit irregular white patches on different parts of the body and these patches grow bigger with time. Usually, the first white patches appear on the face, lips, hands, arms, and feet. Later, they spread to other areas including the armpits, eyes, genitals, and nostrils. Loss of pigment can also result in the eyes and hair.
How Is Vitiligo Diagnosed? A doctor will diagnose vitiligo by doing a physical examination, taking a patient’s history, and possibly carrying out a biopsy and/or blood test to rule out other conditions.
How Is Vitiligo Treated? Conventional medical treatments for vitiligo include UV light therapy re-pigmentation, corticosteroids (oral or topical), skin grafting, skin tattooing, and in extensive cases of vitiligo, de-pigmentation of the rest of the skin to match the color of the affected skin.
Is Vitiligo Treatment Effective? Unfortunately, no method has guaranteed success. Steroids may produce some improvements if used in the long term, but this is not recommended because of side effects. Light therapy is effective to an extent, but it is very time-consuming and can cause eye damage, skin burns, and skin cancer. Skin grafting should in theory be very effective, but in reality, many complications occur, including rejection of the graft, infection, and abnormal appearance of the grafted skin (cobblestone effect).
Is It True That Vitiligo Can Be Cured Without Any Medications Or Surgery?
Yes, there have been numerous research papers published that reported that patients have been cured of vitiligo using a combination of 3 vitamins, herbal extracts, or a combination of herbals and vitamins in scientific trials. It has also been shown that dietary changes can have a pronounced effect on the condition. A lot of research on natural cures for vitiligo has been carried out in Sweden.
