Lately I’ve been getting a lot of questions on how I healed my vitiligo and I am so happy that you are reaching out! Vitiligo is a difficult condition to deal with, and I am happy to act as a support for those who also suffer from it. Here is some more information on the topic that might help you.
What dosage of probiotics/glutamine/NAC did you use?
I started out with 1/4 teaspoon of probiotic powder and 1/4 teaspoon of glutamine powder in the morning and night with a tall glass of water. After a week or so, I increased the dosage to 1/2 teaspoon. I took 1 500mg capsule of NAC in the morning and 1 500 mg capsule at night.
What brands did you use?
For probiotics, I used metagenics ultra flora plus DF powder. For glutamine, I used jarrow formulas. For NAC, I either used bluebonnet, jarrow formulas, or NOW–depending on what was cheapest at the time.
Do you have any other advice for me besides what you’ve talked about in your last vitiligo post?
Yes! My first piece of advice is to JUICE YOUR GREENS. Most of us that suffer from vitiligo also are suffering from digestion. I believe that there is a connection between the two. Because we have problems digesting our food, our skin is not absorbing all the necessary nutrients it needs to heal. If we juice, we can bypass the digestion process and work our way to glowing skin. My second piece of advice is to seek out a holistic nutritionist or naturopathic doctor in your area. They can do a good job of getting down to the root of the issue.
Will you help me?
Of course! But remember, I am not a doctor, nutritionist, scientist, or anyone who has any official qualifications. Vitiligo also works in unexpected ways, so I can’t make any guarantees. I even still have a few spots left that I am working to eliminate. But if you send me a list of the things you’re eating and the supplements you are taking, I can work with you to improve your diet in a way that will improve your digestion and overall health. If your body responds the way that mine did, your skin will likely heal as well.
