Hi My Fellow Viti Friends ;)!
I must confess…
The other day I bought David Paltrow’s Vitiligo Miracle. I bought it because I was intrigued, and I wanted to see if anything he had to say made sense or if it was just a scam. I felt really scammed when I bought Michael Dawson’s vitiligo book. He kept promising a “system” throughout the sales page, but when I opened the book I couldn’t find this so-called system anywhere. It was just a bunch of basic information about what vitiligo is, suspected causes, common medical and natural treatments, blah, blah, blah…YAWN. Basically not helpful at all. At least to me it wasn’t.
So when I came across David Paltrow’s book, my initial thought was, “It’s probably a rip-off like the other book”. But, upon further inspection of the sales page, something told me that The Vitiligo Miracle would be different.
First, I will tell you what my first impression was based on the sales page, and what I thought of the book after quickly scanning through it.
My Thoughts on the Sales Page
Truthfully, I got both good and bad feelings from the sales page.
The first thing that jumped out at me were the claims of reversing your vitiligo in as little as 7 days, which we all know is not possible for the great majority of us.
However, I will say that when I had my phone consultation with Dr. Wanakee Hill, she told me that she could rub some crushed vitamins on her white spots at night and the next morning she would have some little spots of pigment returning. So, I say that to say that it may be possible to get fast results for some people, but highly unlikely.
The other thing I didn’t like was the constant use of words and phrases such as, “The only holistic system in existence”, and “No one else will tell you about”, “Miracle”, etc. These phrases felt exaggerated and insincere to me, and really just play upon the panicky desperate feelings we have all felt about our vitiligo at one time or another. I prefer straight logic without all of the hype. Totally unnecessary in my opinion.
I also tend to really dislike upsells…and there are two of them, $17 each. However, both could be helpful depending on your situation…although you can purchase the eBook without them and you won’t have to feel like you’re missing out on something important.
One upsell is a cookbook, which may or may not be helpful to you. I personally love cookbooks. They were especially helpful to me when I first started significantly changing the way that I ate. When you are trying to avoid gluten, nightshades, sugar, etc. you tend to not know what to eat. Cookbooks are a lifesaver.
Since I already have a million cookbooks though, I passed. The other upsell is a candida book. I also have two candida books, so I didn’t need this one either. But again, you may feel you could benefit from it.
There are also a bunch of so-called “testimonials”, and I’m never really sure if these things are real or not. So I didn’t really give them much credence, and skipped over them. But I still kept reading to see if there was anything worth my attention.
And, of course, I was pleasantly surprised.
I just wanna mention here that this is where doing your research and being informed about vitiligo really pays off. If you know your stuff, you will you be able to smell a rat from a mile away, and you will be able to tell if someone is speaking the truth. Like I said before in one of my other posts, knowledge is power 🙂
The Good: What Sold Me on The Vitiligo Miracle
So as I already mentioned, there were some good things on the sales page caught my interest. Again, try to ignore the hypey words and see the simple statements in bold type. Here are a few of them:
The #1 most effective way to determine your Vitiligo trigger. (If you could only make one step toward better understanding your Vitiligo, this would be it!)
Several of the best anti-Vitiligo supplements that almost NOBODY knows about, compiled by a 12-year study.
SECRET #18: WARNING! A very common household ingredient can aggravate your Vitiligo. If you do not get rid of it, you will never get rid of your Vitiligo.
The overlooked natural SOLUTION that can almost miraculously stop reverse vitiligo on your legs, back or chest
Some other points I thought were right on target were these facts:
Fact #1: There is an overload of conflicting information and often ineffective advice on how to treat Vitiligo. (absolutely)
Fact #2: Vitiligo medications such as topical corticosteroid therapy can make your Vitiligo worse. (yes, quite possible)
Fact #3: Creams and miracle lotions cannot heal Vitiligo. (exactly)
Fact #4: Vitiligo is not only a problem with your skin but a warning sign of a serious inner imbalance. (totally agree)
So at this point, I am thinking this guy probably knows his stuff.
What really sold me on The Vitiligo Miracle was the fact that he kept mentioning a step-by-step system. This is what I was most interested in.
Sure, it could be argued that many of the things he discusses in this book can be found on the internet for free, or perhaps after a few trips to the library.
However, it is VERY time consuming to not only find all of this information, but then to make sense of it all, and then put it all together into some sort of workable plan…I say this from experience. There were many times when I felt like I had so many things swirling around in my head that I didn’t know where to start.
Having all of the research done for you and put it into an organized format, made this book worth every penny in my opinion.
So of course, I bought it 🙂
First Impression After Scanning the Table of Contents and Subheadings
The Table of Contents is clickable, which is really nice-so you can quickly skip around to find the information you are looking for.
- LOTS of information, and all appears to be very accurate.
- Appendix contains a 7 day sample menu and some recipes, I really like this.
- No hype. Just FACTS.
Overall my first impression of this book is good. I think it was sincerely written and looks to be very helpful.
In part 2 of my Vitiligo Miracle Review, I will cover chapters 1 and 2. So stay tuned if you’re interested in hearing about them :)!
P.S. The links in this post are affiliate links, which means I earn a small commission if you decide to purchase this book through my links. This helps me pay for the cost of this blog so that I can continue writing it for you. I’m telling you about Vitiligo Miracle because it is an excellent book about vitiligo and it contains most of the treatments that I’m currently using right now to reverse my vitiligo. Thank you for your support !
