Hello. I Am Rachel White. This Is About My Life Story With Vitiligo Disease And My Tips

Welcome to my blog, I am Rachel White, a homemaker and mother of two beautiful daughters. I live in New Jersey after I married to Peter 15 years back. His work kept him busy and I gave up my work to look after my kids. People tell my daughters that they have my looks. I have sharp features and radiant skin until I noticed a patch or de-pigmentation on my neck. I did not take it so seriously. One day, my daughter, Klara, suggested me to get in touch with our family doctor because the white spot was expanding.

My Life With Vitiligo

  • In no time, these patches appeared on my arms, face, hands and feet. It was the biggest pain which I experienced because it all came to me all of a sudden. My husband and daughters kept telling me that everything was going to be fine with me. But only, I know what kind of pain and depression I was going through.
  • Anyways, my family doctor confirmed vitiligo after properly analyzing me. He was not sure if I was going to be as before but he put me on medications. For me, the whole world just came to an end. I did not want to take any medicine.
  • Then, Klara started spending more time with me because she could feel my pain. She kept searching about the disease on the net and with her friends. Luckily, the mother of her closest friend suggested some home remedies which did wonders to my condition. I want to share these natural and home remedies with you all so that people like me can take the benefits.

Use Sunscreen For Protection

  • We all know how harmful sun rays can be. If you are on a fairer side and suffering from vitiligo, you should use sunscreen every time you go out. This is because; the rays can further harm your skin and trigger the disease. It is recommended to use the lotion which offers the UVA and UVB protection. However, you should apply it only if you are going out.

Psoralea Seeds

  • You can soak these seeds in ginger juice or tamarind seeds for three days. It is one of the most effective and time tested home remedy for vitiligo. These seeds replicate the sun's tanning effects and help restore the color of your skin to a great extent. After three days, you should rub them with hands to eliminate the shell. You must dry them in shade and make powder. It is recommended to take one gram of this powder daily with milk for 40 days without fail.
  • You should also apply the ground seeds on the white patches. However, it is wise to ask your doctor before using them as they may have other side-effects on your skin.

Radish Seeds

  • These seeds have proven effects on vitiligo. You should take about 40 grams of these seeds and soak them in water with some vinegar in it overnight. The paste should be applied on the affected areas or white patches for about two hours. It might be dried properly and should come out as scales. You will be able to get the results only if you perform it on a regular basis.

Copper Treated Water

  • It is suggested to keep water in copper utensil overnight. Drinking this water will increase the melanin production. It is one of the most effective and easiest remedies to treat vitiligo at home effectively.

Turmeric Paste

  • The turmeric mixed with mustard oil have great impact on the white areas. Take 500 grams of turmeric. It should be hammered and soaked in eight liters of water at night. In the morning, you should boil until it reaches one eighth of its original volume. Now, the mixture should be stained and mixed with 500 grams of mustard oil. You should heat this mixture until only oil is left. Then, you can apply it on the affected areas every morning and evening on a daily basis.

I really thank Klara and her friend's mother who helped me in regaining the original skin tone. I have realized that vitiligo is a part of my life and I can get rid of it if I follow the medications and home remedies properly.
