For Vitiligo: Aloe vera and or Almond oil - I have dropped all chemical products for my skin and used these. Specially on my hands and surprisingly the white spots have started disappearing. Exactly up unto the point where my long sleeve shirt starts.

My daughter is 17 years old and she had white spots on her elbows that seemed to be getting larger so we went to a dermotogist and she said it appeared to be vitiligo. My daughter was devastated when we left because the doctor prescribed a steriod cream and said pretty much if this doesn't work there isn't much else we can do. We came home and I lived on the computer every night searching for something that would help. The steriod cream irritated her skin after 2 weeks so we had to stop. At that time I put together my own regime and I will say it has been 5 months now and her skin is almost fully repigmented. Of course it will probably take a few more months but at least there is significant progress. I even called the doctor to try and tell them I would like her to know what we are doing so maybe she could tell other patients but she never called us back. So as they say every man for himself...I do believe it is a lack of certain vitamin. from what I have read it will not be cured but as long as you keep a watch on your body you can catch the spots when they start to reappear and continue the vitamins. My daughter takes a liquid Aloe Vera, Vitamin B-12, Ginko Biloba, folic Acid, C complex. She also rubs the aloe Vera plant on the spots 1 -2 times a day. I have read about the coconut oil and the copper as well but have not tried it. We figured if these things are working don't change it. We live in South Florida and I do want to locate a doctor that is very familiatsh with Vitilio and get there input. We do plan to discountine vitamins once she is fully repigmented, but this is why I would like to talk to a doctor.

Hi, Could anyone please tell me if they have tried coconut oil on patches of vitiligo with some success? and if so how long has it taken to see some improvement?
I have had small white patches on my hands and arms for several years, and over the last year they have gotten much larger. None of the home remedies I tried seemd to work, so I looked at the ingredients in the expensive herbal vitiligo cure formulas and noticed that they all contained the same base ingredient of coconut oil.
I purchased some virgin coconut oil and have been rubbing it into the white areas every morning and before bed every night for the past three weeks, and the areas are all turning pink and filling in.

My daughter was diagnosed with vitiligo at the age of 2 1/2 and was also prescribed a steroid ointment. She has it on her left eyelid and some of her lashes are white. I tried the ointment for about 2 weeks and stopped. After doing tons of research, I have changed her diet to 80% gluten free, give her a natural multi-vitamin supplement and also have her wear a copper bracelet. I began rubbing 99% Aloe Vera on her vitiligo area in January 2014, but all I would notice was that her skin would get really red. So after more internet research, I began applying Extra Virgin Coconut Oil in the morning and at night in April of 2014. In mid June 2014, I noticed she already began to have a area of repigmentation on her eye. I'm continuing to rub the coconut oil on her eye 2-3 times a day. I think it has a lot to do with diet, eating more natural foods, but I really believe the coconut oil is causing the repigmenation.
For vitiligo: it can be reversed.
Look up Dr. Robert Morse-work on the Pituitary gland, detox is key, eating raw is key. Per Dr. Wallach clean up your diet, eliminate ALL gluten, take a combination of supplements to reverse any ailment. Dr. Bergman clean up diet, eat certain foods, detox, and do certain treatments like infrared sauna and others to reverse vitiligo. All three know that the body will heal it self given the right tools.
Heal from within and stop treating symptoms.
"There may be a genetic connection between the skin condition Vitiligo and other autoimmune diseases, including autoimmune thyroid conditions such as Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Graves' disease.
Vitiligo is highly associated with other autoimmune diseases, including thyroid disease , pernicious anemia, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, lupus Addison's disease, and adult-onset autoimmune diabetes."

My daughter is three years old and she had small white patches when she was born, her dad is from the Phillipines, I am from america. the white spots have gotten bigger and more abundent. The doctors havd tried everything possible and can't get rid of them. Does any one know of anything that might work?
...Dr Reading, an Australian doctor who cured a hundred Lupus [SLE] patients by [among other things] taking them off all grains except RICE and CORN. Dr Wright discussed the connection between a Lancet article recently reporting a link between the genetic marker HLA-B8 and 17 diseases with what he had learned from Dr Reading. All but one of the 17 diseases [Celiac Disease] arethought to be autoimmune diseases. Dr Wright deduced that if dietary restriction of gluten cured the one gene-linked disease known to have an external cause that perhaps all of the gene-linked diseases had an external cause and that it might just be gluten sensitivity!
I would bet on it!!
Here is the list of the diseases linked to the gene that might respond to restriction of gluten containing foods. My advice is that ANY patient with one of the following diagnoses be taken off ALL grain and ALL dairy products until their involvement is ruled out.
Autoimmune hemolytic anemia
Chronic autoimmune hepatitis
Insulin dependent (type 1) Diabetes mellitus
Pernicious anemia [100% also suffer total lack of stomach acid]
Dr Wright recommends the tTG test for gluten/gliadin sensitivity, a measure of tissue transglutaminase and supposedly the most sensitive test now available. Information from a website is included below for your convenience.
Other tests are the endomysial antibody test [EMA] for short lived antibodies and the antigliadin antibody [AGA] test for the longer lived IgA and IgG antibodies.
Be sure the patient has consumed gluten containing foods right up until test day or the tests might show negative even in gluten sensitive people.
I have Vitiligo & have been trying his recipe for curing it using borax and hydrogen peroxide. Since I know KP is more often than not a parasitic condition, and I know the mentioned chemical combo is used on dogs and cats for demodex mite infestation, Ive applied the solution to the sides of my face and backs of my arms each night before bed. I dont rinse it off. So far it has been extremely effective! Not much has happened with the Vitiligo spot, but I will keep you posted on both!
P.S I also drink 500ml of hot water and ACV every morning upon rising.
New herbal medicine found for Vitiligo or Leukoderma.
Good News, the research was done by the Department of Research and Defence Organization in India - DRDO. not by anyother pharma.
DRDO - is the top organization of the Indian Government
The product name is Lukoskin.
I am giving the link of the Indian National Daily
The protocol of treatment is very lengthy taking internally and applying externally for 300 - 400 days.
It is even distributed free in some government Siddha and Ayurvedha Hospitals.
In south India, there are Unani, Siddha, Ayurveda Government Hopitals where the medicines and treatments are free, it is because of the Socialist Regime during the 1950's.
Hope this helps
I was diagnosed with vitiligo in June 2015. I had large white spots form around my eyes. Doctors said there was no cure, only to apply Protopic 0.1% to the lesions every day and see what happens. But after some research I found that protopic works most effectively when combined with the following vitamins: B12 (1000 mcg) - once a day, B Complex (50 mg) - once a day, Zinc (100 mg) - once a day.
Together with anti-oxidants like raw spinach a few times a week. I make spinach smoothies with avocado, cucumbers, apple, banana and apple juice. After 3 months my pigmentation is almost fully back around my eyes. Always give whatever you are trying 3 months as vitiligo seems to work in that cycle.
Diet is certainly a big part of the change, as well as reducing oxidative stress in your body. Eat more alkaline than acidic foods. And some sunlight exposure is not a risk as many say. The protopic with some sunlight exposure a day works best. Also, try to reduce your day to day stress levels.
A great book for more cure suggestions is 'My victory against Vitilio' by Xichao Mo. Don't believe it cannot be cured! With some patience and finding out what works for you, it is possible. This is what is working for me...
I wanted to share my experience in case it helps someone else. I used to hike a lot and was diagnosed with Lyme disease years ago. I never fully recovered, and later severe cellular damage was found on Spectracell tests. Then I recently discovered in a peer-reviewed paper I read that Morgellons, Lyme disease, and at least 5 other pathogens and parasites are all co-infecting and not commonly found in urine and stool tests, but in the blood, organs, deep tissue and difficult to detect or treat by traditional methods.
So I started using natural anti-parasitics (like tea tree and clove oil, neem soap, pine tar shampoo, drinking teas that are anti-parasitic from herbal plants I grow, etc.), but most helpful was simply bathing in a cup or two of natural Borax in very hot water, submerging the entire body except my eyes (and I put some drops of black tea in my eyes to kill anything there - the floaters you may see when you close your eyes which are gone now. It stings for a moment but is harmless). Since boron is naturally part of your cells you can't really have an allergic reaction, but initially the skin can turn red from the heat and from parasites dying so I drank a couple glasses of cold water afterwards.
I started improving immediately and over a period of months my vitiligo went away in addition to many of my other symptoms. I took photos as it progressed. I believe from what the journal paper found that since these parasites were observed to consume keratin cells and collagen cells (that make up Morgellon's fibers), as well as myelin sheath that surrounds nerve cells, maybe these parasites also consume the cells that produce color in our skin. Anyways, all of my symptoms continue to improve from having more energy to better skin, gray hair went away, migraine headaches are gone, I sleep better, seem to be less hungry, no more chemical sensitivity (as I believe the parasites were the ones reacting to the chemical that kills them), etc. The improvement is amazing and I can only assume it is because my cells are no longer being damaged or to a lesser degree - I will continue to use these treatments indefinitely at a maintenance dose, and hope others will find the same success as I did.
I recommend "Oil of Oregano". I had my son use it for his vitiligo and it worked like a champ. It's been a year since, and there is no recurrance. It must be rubbed on the spot a number of times a day until it is gone. It will not happen overnight.. There must be consistency. My son used it about 4-5 times a day for 3 mths. This product is good to keep in your medicine cabinet for rashes, burns, bruises, abrasions ect. This is just a recommendation. Although I am a nurse, I am not a doctor.
Good health to you
