If you’ve been diagnosed with vitiligo, you have most likely been told you have an autoimmune disorder and that not much can be done to heal it. According to this theory, your body is destroying its melanin-producing cells, responsible for the pigment of your skin. But this is exactly that: a theory. It’s not the truth and it’s not why you or someone you know has vitiligo. The entire autoimmune theory that your body attacks itself is incorrect. It’s critical to understand this if you have vitiligo or any other condition that you’ve been told is autoimmune. Unfortunately, this false belief is at the foundation of medical thinking, leaving countless people feeling like they are living in a body that has turned against them.
The truth is that your body never turns against you. There’s a very real cause of so-called autoimmune conditions like vitiligo, eczema, Hashimoto’s disease, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis and others, and these are real illnesses. And once you know the real cause, which I share in Liver Rescue: Answers to Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Strep, Acne, Gout, Bloating, Gallstones, Adrenal Stress, Fatigue, Fatty Liver, Weight Issues, SIBO & Autoimmune Disease, you can then apply the information that can help you heal.
A few natural treatments for Vitiligo, these are not 100% effective but can reduce signs and spots on skin drastically.
1. In a study conducted at the Department of Dermatology of the University of Alabama it was found that folic acid, vitamin B12, and vitamin C are effective in increasing pigmentation of skin cells. Daily supplementation with vitamin B complex that contains approximately 100 grams of vitamin B and at least 400 micrograms of folic acid can be effective in reducing the spots of Vitiligo.
Vitiligo is also known as Leukoderma. It is a skin disorder that causes the white patches on our body. Generally, it starts without any previous sign or notice. Hence, in few cases, slight irritation is the sign of this disease.
After getting a single white patch on the skin, it is likely to be speared on the different parts of our body. Even though it is not a contagious disease but many people who are suffering from vitiligo, generally suffer from the psychological problem also, that is the big issue.
Many experts have given their different views on its occurrence but the conclusion is- vitiligo is an autoimmune disorder occurs due to the immunity disturbances.

In medical terms, white patches on the skin are known as vitiligo. This can appear on different body parts including the hands, feet, arms, legs, face, lips, and around the eyes and mouth.
The exact cause of this skin condition is still unknown. Experts believe that it could be an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system itself attacks the melanocytes or melanin-producing cells.
MONDAY, Feb. 5, 2018 (HealthDay News) — Doctors have discovered a combination of treatments that can return color to skin that has been lightened by vitiligo — the skin disease that turned Michael Jackson’s skin white.
The new therapy includes the oral medication Xeljanz (tofacitinib) — a drug already approved for use in rheumatoid arthritis patients that dampens the body’s immune response — and ultraviolet-B light therapy.
The combination has only been used on two vitiligo patients, but according to a study author, the results have been dramatic.
1. You probably have a leaky gut and low stomach acid
Leaky gut, A.K.A. intestinal permeability, is the microscopic loss of the integrity of your intestinal lining. In other words, it’s teeny tiny holes in the lining of your intestine.
Dr. Weil describes leaky gut this way:
Leaky gut is the result of damage to the intestinal lining, making it less able to protect the internal environment as well as to filter needed nutrients and other biological substances. As a consequence, some bacteria and their toxins, incompletely digested proteins and fats, and waste not normally absorbed may “leak” out of the intestines into the blood stream. This triggers an autoimmune reaction, which can lead to gastrointestinal problems such as abdominal bloating, excessive gas and cramps, fatigue, food sensitivities, joint pain, skin rashes, and autoimmunity….(source)
Your intestinal lining gets damaged by a combination of one or more of the following:
Poor diet (excessive sugar intake or alcohol consumption), lack of good bacteria, antibiotics and medications (including OTC meds such as aspirin or ibuprofen), chronic inflammation, and food sensitivities.
