Vitiligo natural remedies

Vitiligo is a disease that causes the loss of skin color in blotches. The extent and rate of color loss from vitiligo is unpredictable. It can affect the skin on any part of your body. It may also affect hair, the inside of the mouth and even the eyes. Vitiligo natural remedies can help improve the skin condition.

Normally, the color of hair, skin and eyes is determined by melanin. Vitiligo occurs when the cells that produce melanin die or stop functioning.

Vitiligo affects people of all skin types, but it may be more noticeable in people with darker skin. The condition is not life-threatening or contagious.  Treatment for vitiligo may improve the appearance of the affected skin but does not cure the disease.


Vitiligo occurs when melanin-forming cells (melanocytes) die or stop producing melanin — the pigment that gives your skin, hair and eyes color. The involved patches of skin become lighter or white. Doctors don’t know why the cells fail or die. It may be related to:

  • A disorder in which your immune system attacks and destroys the melanocytes in the skin
  • Family history (heredity)
  • A trigger event, such as sunburn, stress or exposure to industrial chemicals

Vitiligo Natural Remedies

As with any over-the-counter (nonprescription) treatment, check with your doctor before trying alternative medicine therapies to be sure they won’t interact badly with other treatments you may be using.

Nutritional Supplements

Some experts consider vitiligo as the outward expression of nutritional deficiencies. True to this theory, different studies have found that vitiligo patients have lower levels of certain vitamins and minerals when compared to people without vitiligo.

Different studies have found that vitiligo patients are usually deficient in the B vitamins including vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid. Usually low levels of these vitamins are also associated with abnormally high levels of a compound called homocysteine.

Homocysteine produces a long list of harmful effects in the body but it especially can yield harmful free radicals in metabolic reactions. Therefore, supplementation with vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid can help stop vitiligo by reducing oxidative stress on the skin.

Other vitamins that are helpful in vitiligo treatment include the antioxidant vitamins such as vitamins A and C.

Vitamin D has also been proven to have anti-vitiligo effect through a number of properties. In fact, vitamin D analogs are some of the most effective topical vitiligo products prescribed.

Mineral deficiencies play a smaller role in the progression of vitiligo but copper has been suggested to be effective in the treatment of vitiligo.

Alpha lipoic acid is also another antioxidant supplement that has been shown in multiple studies to be quite effective in the treatment of vitiligo.

Herbal ExtractsGinkgo biloba

Ginkgo biloba is perhaps the most studied herb used in the treatment of vitiligo. Limited studies show that the herb Ginkgo biloba may return skin color in people with slow-spreading vitiligo. Other studies show that folic acid and vitamin B-12 plus sunlight may restore skin color for some people.

The leaf extract which contains antioxidant and immunomodulatory phytochemicals has been shown to improve vitiligo symptoms both when used alone and when used with other vitiligo treatments.

Khella or Amni visnaga is also used in the treatment of vitiligo. In fact, the ancient Egyptians recorded its use for this purpose. The flower extract of khella contains khellin, a potent diuretic but it is the psoralen content that is the most useful in vitiligo treatment.

This phytochemical is the same psoralen used in PUVA vitiligo therapy in combination with ultraviolet A radiation.

This closely follows the use of psoralen-containing plants such as Khella in traditional medicine. After taking the extracts, patients are usually advised to get some sunlight exposure.

Psoralen is a coumarin. It is a photosensitizing compound which helps darken the skin after exposure to ultraviolet irradiation.

Some other plants containing psoralen are also used in the treatment of vitiligo. These includeparsnip, celery, carrot and fennel.

Other herbal extracts used in the treatment of vitiligo include ginger juice, black cumin, turmeric, sesame seed, duckweed, coconut oil and papaya.

Vitiligo Supplements

While there are different formulas for combining some of these natural remedies at home, you may decide to take an OTC vitiligo supplement formulated with proven natural vitiligo remedies.

A good example of such is callumae.

Callumae contains the vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid; the amino acid, L-phenylalanine (a precursor for tyrosine which is then used to produce melanin); alpha lipoic acid; and herbal extracts of Ginkgo bilobaAmni visnaga and Picrorhiza kurroa.

Turmeric Therapy

Turmeric extract plays a great role in eliminating Vitiligo, but it is only effective when taken along mustard oil, which also has its own benefits. A combination of mustard oil and turmeric extract is very efficient in curing this disease.

For best results take, 500mg of turmeric extract dissolved in 8litres of lukewarm water. Filter the solution after boiling, and add 500ml of mustard oil. Apply this mixture twice a day, on the patches and observe a great difference in just few months.

Psoralea Seeds

Among many other vitiligo home remedies, one of the best ways to treat vitiligo are Psoralea Seeds. These seeds need to be submerged in 100gm ginger juice for approx three full days, then hulled and converted into a powder form. Apply the paste for an entire month and feel the change!

Red Clay Treatment

Red clay is another useful remedy to vanish Vitiligo. It must be combined with ginger juice in divisible parts and applied daily, twice a day, on the spots, until the problem vanishes.

Lifestyle and home remedies

The following self-care tactics may help you care for your skin and improve its appearance:

  • Protect your skin from the sun and artificial sources of UV light. If you have vitiligo, particularly if you have light skin, use a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Apply sunscreen generously and reapply every two hours — or more often if you’re swimming or perspiring.You can also seek shade and wear clothing that shields your skin from the sun.Protecting your skin from the sun helps prevent sunburn and long-term damage. A bad sunburn can make your condition worse. Sunscreen also minimizes tanning, which makes the contrast between normal and discolored skin less noticeable.
  • Conceal affected skin. Concealing products may improve the appearance of the skin and help you feel better about yourself, especially if your vitiligo patches are on exposed skin. You may need to try several brands of makeup or self-tanners to find one that blends well with your normal skin tone. The coloring of self-tanning products doesn’t wash off, but it gradually fades over several days. If you use a self-tanner, select one that contains dihydroxyacetone, as it is approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

Water and its advantages

Our beautiful body is a methodical compilation of millions of living cells. Our health is based on their health. Our cleanliness is based on their cleanliness. Their requirements are our requirements. We are dependent on them. The first requisite of these cells is air. We are supplying that air through breathing, all the 24 hours, unknowingly. The next most important thing is water. It is our primary responsibility to provide the required quantity of water to the body. The question is how much water should we drink in a day? Our body inside consists of 68% of water and 32% of solid matter. So the cells require more than three fourths of water. The cells will be clean and their movements will be proper only if enough water is provided. We should drink 5
liters of water per day to keep 68% of water and 5 liters of blood in the body, pure and clean. You can drink these 5 liters of water in two installments. The first installment of two and a half liters of water should be
taken on empty stomach. In the early hours cells in the body will be busy in excretory action and in purifying themselves. So the water you take from the time you wake up till your breakfast time, gives a bath to the cells.
You should drink the second installment of water during the daytime when your stomach is empty. This intake of water protects your body from the sun’s heat and the heat generated within from your work.

 Such an intake of water gives many advantages to the diabetic patients. Let’s see what they are:


Diabetic patients urinate more. Excess of glucose in the blood is sent out through urine, but it also drags out
water with it. As a result, there is a deficiency of water in the cells. To compensate the loss of water in the body,
Diabetic patients should drink more water. But they entertain a false notion that more intake of water will
lead to urination in large quantities and it will result in further weakness in their body. And desist from taking
enough water. If you drink 5 liters of water we advocate, you will have the required amount of water content in the body compensating the loss caused due to excess urination.


Patients with  diabetes complain feel thirsty most of the time. It means the body is signaling to drink more
water since there is shortage inside. Everyone drinks water no doubt but still they feel thirsty. It is because
they are not drinking in a proper way. If you drink water in a systematic way as we advocate, you will never feel
thirsty, even if you are a diabetic. Generally we, human beings, drink water while eating. If you want to quench
your thirst, you should not drink while eating food. The water drunk with food takes 2, 3 hours time to reach the cells. What does thirst for water indicate? It means the cells need water. If the water is to reach them directly, you should drink water on an empty stomach or half an hour before eating. If you take two and a half liters of water in the morning as suggested, even if you are a chronic diabetic patient, you can quench your thirst easily.

Skin Health

Due to the shortage of water content inside the body, there will not be sufficient blood supply to the skin. Just
as the leaves of a plant dry out when there is no water supply, the skin of the diabetic patients also gets dry. The
skin gets stiffened forming scars and white lines on it. Especially, the skin at the feet gets spoiled. By taking more water blood circulation improves and the skin becomes smooth.

Diabetic patients get many skin diseases like boils, rashes etc. If they take in plenty of water, it will drive out the
waste material at the pores of the skin and keep it healthy. Blood circulation to the skin will improve
avoiding skin diseases.


The food we eat reaches as glucose to the cells through blood. Some salts and other materials also reach the cells through blood. These items are first released into the liquid outside the cells. From there, they enter the cell through oxygen. Water and glucose reach the cell and with the help of a few enzymes, they release energy
there. The waste material left out in the process is sent out of the cell. All this takes place in the presence of
water. If enough water is not supplied, the movement of food inside and waste outside of the cell is not done
properly. It results in damage to the cells. In those who don’t drink sufficient water, the waste material in the
body doesn’t go out properly. The intake of 2-3 liters of water on an empty stomach dissolves this waste material and pushes it out of the body through sweat, urine and motion. Water is protector of the cell.

High blood pressure

Normally the salt content we take through food is more than what our body needs. Part of it will be left out in the body. That will stagnate in the fluid outside the cell. Such stagnated salt slowly stiffens and thickens the outer layer of the cell. As the salt travels along with food through the blood vessels it thickens the walls of the blood vessels in due course that results in blood pressure. If such thick blood vessels become thickened due to the passage of salt through them, then imagine the plight of the poor cell’s outer layer. If this gets stiffened the movements to and fro get disturbed. If you take 5 liters of water, it dissolves the salt outside the cells and sends it out through urine and sweat. The density of salt gets lessened due to the proper intake of water. It also makes the outer layer of the cell smooth. Then it becomes healthy enough to absorb energy form the glucose. The water you drink purifies the environment in and outside the cell. It helps in reducing the glucose content.

Water for border line diabetes

So, those who have diabetes at border level (200 mg% blood sugar without using medicines), if they drink water as prescribed here, their sugar level reduces to 150-160 mg°/o. Of course if it is more than 200 mg%, it will not reduce without change of diet. Mind you, we are not saying, you will be cured of sugar complaint only by drinking water. But it does help restore the cell’s health. It does reduce the sugar level. You will be surprised at practically seeing the improvement in many patients.

Numbness and tingling

Those who suffer from sugar complaint for quite a few years get other complaints like numbness, tingling or
burning sensation at the feet due to the damage caused to nerves and blood vessels. Those who have obesity in
addition to sugar complaint have more of these complaints. They get these problems because the blood
doesn’t reach up to the feet and fingers through the thin blood vessels. Blood is thicker mostly for diabetic
patients. Since the water content gets reduced, the blood doesn’t flow properly to the last parts of the body. So
their blood vessels are closed. If such people drink plenty of water, the blood becomes diluted, and travels speedily to the last parts too. So the closed blood vessels open up allowing a free flow of blood. 70-80% of people get cured of their problems at feet by drinking water thus.

High cholesterol 

When sugar level increases – the cholesterol, triglycerides in the blood also increase and the blood vessels close
down. If they drink plenty of water, the water prevents the storage of fats in the blood vessels and helps in an
easy flow of these fats.

Control hunger with water

Some sugar patients feel terribly hungry. So they keep on eating some thing or other, even when the body doesn’t require it. As a result, sugar level increases more. So it’s like devil or deep sea for them. If they eat they have sugar problem, if they don’t, they feel hungry. Such people can get rid of this problem, if they drink water as suggested here. Two hours after lunch, if they drink a liter to liter and a half of water in phases (one glass for
every 20, 30 min) for two hours, they won’t feel hungry. 

Diabetic patients have many other complaints too. The intake of water as we suggested, cures other complaints also. You may not be aware of the manifold advantages of drinking water for such patients. Hundreds of diabetic patients followed this prescription, found tremendous results.
It is our fundamental need to drink the required water for the body. You need not necessarily be a diabetic patient to do so.
