Vitamins and a healthy diet are among the possible remedies for vitligo.

Up to this very day, no permanent cure for vitiligo has been discovered. The best that people with vitiligo can do for now is to undergo treatments that help them manage their condition. Among the more common treatments for vitiligo is phototherapy, which, as the name suggests, involves the exposure of the affected areas to ultraviolet rays, either naturally or with the use of a domestic uv lamp. This treatment is often done in conjunction with certain medications, in the hopes that the treatment would stimulate repigmentation.

Some people with vitiligo, however, would rather go for alternative treatments. Instead of spending a lot of money on conventional treatments, they would rather go for natural options, such as supplementation of folic acid, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin C.  Several studies have revealed that taking in more of the said nutrients have triggered noticeable repigmentation on their subjects’ skin. Supplements like Vitiligo Treatment by Microdose are another option to be considered.

There are also several home remedies that vitiligo patients have been trying and they are reporting positive results.  There is the mixture of turmeric and mustard oil, which are believed to be great for boosting our immune system. Typically, the mixture is made up of 250 ml of mustard oil and five teaspoons of turmeric powder. Mixed into a paste, this treatment is then applied to the affected areas of the skin twice a day, for up to a year. Another popular home treatment is red clay. Often found on riversides or hill slopes, red clay is mixed with ginger juice at ratio of one is to one, and then applied to the white patches.

Then there’s wild duckweed, which is believed to help in the repigmentation of the skin. To use duckweed as vitiligo treatment, it must be ground to a paste, and one part of th

is paste should be mixed with one part of honey. A teaspoon of this mixture should be taken orally twice a day after a meal. Radish seeds are also used for the treatment of the condition. Those who take this option need to grind 25 grams of radish seeds into powder, then mix it with two teaspoons of vinegar. The resulting paste should then be applied to the white patches.

Some vitiligo patients resort to homeopathic medicine. Among the homeopathic remedies that are commonly recommended for vitiligo are Natrum Carbonicum, alum, phosphorus, sepia, sulfur and silica.
