Most mainstream doctors seem to dismiss out of hand the idea that there is any link between vitiligo and nutrition. My own experience of re-pigmenting as a result of taking nutritional supplements has been ample proof to me of the connection between the two. It's good to see that the Vitiligo Society also addresses the subject. This page on their site is worth a read and goes a long way to explaining why Boost and Five a Day+ worked for me. http://www.vitiligosociety.org.uk/index.php/nutrition.html
For centuries common sense and experience have taught us that you are what you eat. I wonder why it is that modern, western medicine has lost touch with this concept. Could it possibly be anything to do with the influence of the lucrative drugs industry? Or am I just a cynic?!!!
A vitiligo blogger since 2011. My name is Caroline. I had vitiligo for nearly 50 years before finding an effective treatment. I created this blog to share my experiences with others affected by this skin condition.
