Natural vitiligo treatments

Everyone likes to ‘go natural’, and vitiligo treatment and re-pigmentation can be done naturally. Medical treatment has a higher success rate compared to natural treatments, however approximately 50% of vitiligo patients do respond to natural combinations of Vitamin D, herbal remedies such as ginkgo and light therapy. Re-pigmentation can take up to 12 months, however success can be gauged within the first 3 months of therapy.
