I have vitiligo since 17 years on my feet, knees and elbows. I tried allopathy but it didn’t work for long term. I get 2-3 new small to medium spots every year or so. I feel stressed and low self-esteem. What should I do to naturally control and cure it?

Hello User,

Vitiligo is an autoimmune disorder but it can be treated by a correct diet and pranayam. Vitiligo is a condition in which white patches appear on the skin. It occurs when the cells forming melanin are damaged or stop functioning. 


  • Start the day with 3 to 4 glasses of warm water on an empty stomach. This will help to detoxify the body. 
  • Eat only plant-based natural foods.
  • Include sprouts, salads, nuts, and beans.
  • Have soaked raisins and other dry fruits. 
  • Include fresh, seasonal, and locally available fruits and vegetables. 
  • Drink coconut water. 
  • Have while grains like barley, millets, oats, etc.
  • Drink sufficient water during the day to be hydrated. 

Foods to avoid

  • Avoid processed and packaged foods. 
  • Avoid tea, coffee, and other caffeinated drinks. 
  • Avoid carbonated drinks. 
  • Avoid dairy food items and animal foods.
  • Avoid refined grains, refined sugars, and refined oil as it may worsen the condition. 
  • Avoid oily and spicy foods.

Yoga and pranayam 

Yoga and pranayam are very effective in vitiligo. They improve blood circulation in the body. 

  • Perform pranayam for 15-20 min daily, specially Bhramri, Sitkari, Sitali, Nadishodhan and Kapalbhati pranayam. 
  • Do suryanamaskar daily. 
  • Do some asana also like bhujanga asana, trikona asana, gomukha asana.


Sleep plays an important role in maintaining the circadian rhythm and hormonal balance. 

Hence, take proper sleep of at least 7-8 hours daily. Sleep early at night and also wake up early in the morning. 

Thank you

Hello User,

As your condition is now diagnosed as vitiligo, let us understand the mechanism of it. The pathology behind the vitiligo disease is our immunity gets hampered and starts producing abnormal cells. To simplify our body is getting affected by our day to day lifestyle and activates its defense mechanism to protect it.

Skin giving the first reaction to everything going inside the body, that is where vitiligo begins. Now what can be these things which are body is protecting from? Stress, smoking, vitamin D deficiency (low sun exposure), any kind of past skin injury-causing infection, a high-fat diet which causes difficulty indigestion issue and nutrients absorbed is less. Genetically also vitiligo has shown high prevalence but in any case, we have to work on our condition with major steps. Now that we are clear about the cause. An initiative for holistic change can help you from within and treat you the best.


Starting your day with something light in nature and easy to digest is what your breakfast should be. Even the early morning ritual should include consumption of two-three glasses of warm water will help in flushing out all the toxins.

  • The diet rich in Vitamin C is what we should start with like oranges, mosumbi, lemon, berries are going to be very helpful in the case of iron absorption. Lemon can be consumed as a natural organic lemon will never obstruct your treatment.
  • Refined sugar and salt, dairy product, and gluten should be completely avoided in your situation.
  • Application of coconut oil is important, one tablespoon of coconut oil in 2-3 drops of tea tree oil will help in treating the affected skin getting back its pigment.
  • The application of one tablespoon of mustard oil with a tablespoon of turmeric will help treat vitiligo spots. Apply it thrice a day by keeping the area clean.
  • One tablespoon of olive oil mix with your bathing water while taking a bath.
  • In the evening two hours after your meal in the afternoon take one inch of ginger, one teaspoon of honey and half teaspoon of turmeric in one cup of water, bring it to boil for 5-10 minutes and consume daily. This will help in increasing immunity to fight against the disease.


  • Surynamakar helps in increasing the blood circulation doing 12 sets will help, start with 6 if you are a beginner.
  • In pranayam deep breathing helps in detoxification which will help in treating illness, so you can go for pranayama for vitiligo cure.
  • A brisk walk in early morning sun from 30-45 minutes, helps in treating your body to its level best. Sun is the best source of Vitamin D taking brisk to walk around 6-7 will help in treating vitiligo. The action of the sun on the skin is its activation of melanin cells, which are responsible for giving color to the skin. That is why having a walk-in sun or taking morning sun rays is essential in this condition.


In any kind of disease, stress comes complementary to it, but with our assurance and positive attitude, we can treat anything. The best thing to start with is breathing mindfully before sleep with the help of music to stay positive. A positive attitude will help you to deal with everything in life.15-minute relaxing meditation with the help of light music before sleep will help you in relaxing.


Sleeping for at least 7-8 hours is helpful in dealing with any problem, sleep is our body's natural response and helps the body to heal. Sleep relaxes the muscles and strengthens our body.

Hopefully, these suggestions will help you

Thank you.

Thanks for sharing your concern with us! We do appreciate that this is a stressful for you. We would like to tell you that many people have successfully been able to reverse multiple, chronic diseases through Nature Cure. 

As per Nature Cure, our body is designed to stay in a state of health, and diseases are often an attempt to restore any imbalance inside the body. The imbalance is caused because of toxins - which are an output of metabolism and are also added due to unnatural lifestyle choices. Nature has equipped us with the measures of eliminating the toxins on a regular basis - through breathing, stool, urine, sweat, mucus depositions in the nose, eyes, and genitals, etc. Whenever there is toxic overload due to insufficient or faulty elimination our body starts a few special elimination processes. Those are considered as Acute diseases like Flu, Loose-motions, cough, cold, fever, skin rashes, and acute pain. At this stage, instead of supporting the body to get rid of toxins we often suppress symptoms by restoring to quick-fixes like medicines, etc. As a result, the body is unable to throw away the toxins. This is when the ever-increasing amount of toxins in the body starts creating long term disease conditions such as diabetes, blood pressure, asthma, ulcer, etc. Increased creatinine levels are an indication of faulty elimination. And when we further ignore the symptoms or try to suppress them and then the state of the disease takes a turn for the worse. This is when the body has completely given up and starts shutting down slowly, resulting in degenerative diseases. Vitiligo is also a degenerative condition.

The way to reverse diseases is to adopt a natural lifestyle which in turn helps get rid of the toxins and supports the body by providing the right environment for self-healing. We would thereby recommend you to adopt a natural lifestyle. You can explore our Natural Health Coaching Program that helps you in making the transition, step by step. Our Natural Health Coach will look into your daily routine in a comprehensive way and give you an action plan.
