It would help if you had a good awareness of Vitiligo and healthy living to treat your Vitiligo naturally.
This will help you devise a plan to fix Vitiligo by natural means. Vitiligo is a condition in which white patches of skin occur in various areas of the body.
This is because the cells that create the pigment (color) melanocyte in the skin is destroyed.
Melanocytes are the primary cells that produce melanin that gives color to the skin. In some instances, these melanocytes are not completely destroyed, and, in that case, it is easier to restore pigment.
People with Vitiligo will need to follow a special diet to prevent the condition from deteriorating or compensate for any nutritional deficiencies. Since it is an autoimmune disorder, a safe diet with a balanced diet rich in antioxidants, phytochemicals, and beta-carotenes from various sources (raw vegetables and fruit) is a good way to help the immune system. A diet with good availability of nutrients that facilitates healthy skin can help with the pigmentation process.
Dietary inputs for vitiligo patients:
1) Foods that are overly bitter should be avoided.
The acidity of the food can potentially inhibit the development of melanin due to its acidic nature.
2) Non-vegetarian foods should be avoided as much as possible because they serve as a foreign body to pigment cells.
3) The intake of vitamin B-12 rich food is highly successful in reversing Vitiligo. Various medical studies and analyses have shown that vitamin B-12 deficiency appears to increase homocysteine, a compound responsible for the degradation of skin pigmentation in different areas of the body.
These are inputs and observations and may or may not work for all.
