Tips for Healing Vitiligo Holistically

The medical industry is keen on using high tech procedures and pharmaceutical drugs to cure disease, but in some cases a more holistic approach can save the patient thousands of dollars and endless suffering by eliminating dangerous side effects. 

Holistic healing is nothing new. It has been practiced worldwide for centuries. Yet too many of today's medical practitioners scoff at the idea that a simpler way of treating diseases may actually work. Those who suffer with Vitiligo have learned that holistic healing is not only more effective, but safer than more traditional treatment options.



A Nutritional Approach to Healing 

Vitiligo has been directly linked to a toxic buildup in the body. This is often caused by overworking the liver and kidneys with the wrong diet. When the liver is unable to purge toxins from the body fast enough, the skin begins to release them, and this can cause serious skin damage, including the death of pigment cells. By changing the way you eat, you can begin to stop this dangerous leakage and reverse the effects of Vitiligo. 

Some of the things that should be avoided while healing Vitiligo holistically include: 

. Gluten: whether they know it or not most people suffer with some sort of gluten sensitivity or intolerance, and this can cause a reaction in the skin. 

. Acidic foods: eating too many acidic foods can throw off the Ph balance in the body, and that can leave the skin vulnerable to attack. 

. Processed foods: jam packed with preservatives, chemicals and other toxins, processed foods are horrible for your body and your skin. Avoid them while healing. 

. Sugar laden foods: soft drinks, snacks, etc. can all alter your glucose levels which can negatively affect the health of your skin. 

What Should You Eat? 

The foods you eat can either hurt your skin or help it heal. Adopting a Vitiligo- busting diet will include adding plenty of these to your daily eating plan: 

. Proteins: considered the building blocks of cells, protein such as lean meats, eggs, and nuts can all help your skin heal. 

. Fats and oils: the body needs a certain amount of fats and oils daily in order to function properly. Be sure to use extra virgin olive oil for cooking to help boost your immune system and increase circulation in the skin. 

. Omega 3 Fatty acids: known to boost immunity and limit damaging inflammation throughout the body, eating plenty of deep sea fish can help your skin return to its natural coloring and glow. 

. Fruits and Vegetables: an essential part of nay diet, fresh fruits and veggies give your skin the right mix of nutrients. 

. Water: nothing beats clear fresh water when it comes to keeping the skin healthy. Be sure to drink at least 64 ounces every day. 

Sleep to the Rescue 

Most people underestimate the value of a good night's sleep. Without proper rest, the body (and skin) is unable to rejuvenate and fix itself. One way to boost your skin's health is to get at least eight hours of quality sleep each night. 

Exercise a Must to Vitiligo Healing 

If there is any magic "pill" for good health it may be good old fashioned exercise. Research has shown that just 30 minutes of mild aerobic exercise each day helps to improve circulation, healing and boost the immune system. 

Stress Reduction 

When you are under stress, your body reacts in many ways: your adrenal glands pump harder; your heart races and your blood pressure rises. Your entire body awakens to a high alert. If left unchecked, this can affect any organ and system in the body. Use common stress reduction techniques like yoga, medication, exercise and even relaxation to help reduce the negative effects of stress on your body - and your skin. 

Vitamins to the Rescue 

When your skin is starved for the right nutrients, it will react in a negative way. To help heal Vitiligo holistically, be sure to add these important vitamins and minerals to your daily health regiment: 

. omega 3 fatty acids . vitamin C. vitamin E. zinc. beta carotene. Phytochemicals (boron, chromium, calcium, cesium, cobalt, copper, selenium). thiamine. riboflavin. vitamin K

Treating Vitiligo holistically requires than a few simple fixes. It requires a multi- pronged approach to healing that deals with all facets of the body and finding ways to heal the skin in a more natural and long lasting manner.

  1. Around age 12 I began getting white spots around my eyes, mouth and the skin around my fingernails. The dermatologist my parents took me to could offer no help other than a sun lamp and some small white pills (both a waste of money) and time. Since my parents didn't have the right kind of insurance there was no compassion from the health care provider either. I am now age 50 and all of my pigment is gone except for a few raindrop sized spots here and there. In some ways it's a blessing to look somewhat like everyone else. In other ways, not so much.

    I am so glad to find your article because the medical field still doesn't have a clue. I am wondering if there are any studies out there regarding Vitiligo and childhood trauma or what is now called PTSD. Going through your article takes me back to the years between the trauma and the onset of the white splotches, The nights I laid there trying to go to sleep and not able due to the stress and trying to somehow reconcile reality with the way things should have happened, at least within my own mind; and the mornings that were too early because I couldn't go to sleep the night before. The stress of going to school and trying to learn things that just wouldn't stay in my brain and then the stress of parent teacher conferences with my teachers telling my mom "I know Virginia is smart enough to learn the stuff but she just doesn't apply herself." Then years later I find out what all of that stress does to my adrenals and I realize that it is no wonder that I have had (undignosed) chronic fatigue since my youth.

    So if you knows of research on this topic please post links here and I will do the same. Thanks for all you do.
