I am back with my detailed review of Chapters 5 (The last chapter) of David Paltrow’s Vitiligo Miracle eBook!
This is where this book REALLY shines. It’s in this chapter that he reveals the “system” that he talks so much about on his sales page. He covers a lot of ground here, so this review will likely be broken up into two or three posts!
Under the heading Step 1 he talks about how vitiligo has been linked to toxins and bad diet. He then lists 3 “dangerous eating habits” that need to be corrected in order to stop the skin from reacting.
All three of these things are absolutely true, and they are things I am addressing in my own treatment plan. I really like the way he explains them here.
Next he gives a list of foods to avoid – which include gluten and acidic foods, both things I am sure you have heard before…nothing new.
However, he does briefly explain the body’s acid/alkaline balance and what it should be – and more importantly how you can maintain this level consistently.
He then reveals some of the best alkaline forming foods those of us should include in our diets. He also includes a list of foods that when eaten in excess can cause problems. These are all things I avoid, or eat very rarely.
He gives a suggestion of something you can take in order to better balance your acid/alkaline levels. I have never heard of this before…it sounds very interesting.
Under the next subheading, he reveals another type of food that should be strictly avoided if you have vitiligo and the reason why. Again, all foods I myself avoid, or eat VERY sparingly.
I think it’s safe to say that if you have vitiligo, you pretty much know that you need to stay away from junk/processed food. This is a no-brainer J!
He talks about processed foods and why they should be avoided. A good reminder for all of us as to why we need to stay away!
Under the subheading Foods to Eat and Nourish Your Skin, he lists the most important foods that those of us with vitiligo need to be eating. It’s a very thorough list and includes everything that I eat myself J!
The next section really caught my attention, since he gives a recipe for a healing broth that is designed to give your immune system the support it needs to increase melanin production. It looks very yummy!
He says you can drink it or even freeze it and eat it like a soup.
He then gives one of THE most important, overlooked tips on healthy food preparation…something ALL of us should avoid using if we have vitiligo! This is something I stopped using once I started Nutritional Balancing.
Healthy Meal Planning
The next subheading Meal Planning for the Vitiligo Sufferer covers three ways to plan meals so that you can set yourself up for success.
I have to say that this section has been EXTREMELY helpful and motivating to me. I never used to plan my meals in the way that he suggests, but I tried it and cannot believe how much time I have freed up.
The best part is that I am never without a healthy meal and it really helps me stay on track so that I am never in a situation where I have to resort to eating junk food. Great tips!
He next talks about digestion and metabolism and how important it is as it relates to vitiligo. Here he mentions celiac and gluten, and the importance of avoiding gluten if you have vitiligo. Not new information, but still helpful and good to be reminded.
Step 2 is next, and under this subheading he talks about the immune system and how the thyroid affects vitiligo.
Next he talks about how to build a stronger immune system and covers a number of ways to do this.
The first way is perhaps THE most important one, and the one I am always preaching – even though there are loads of critics who will tell you it doesn’t make a difference. I have had LOTS of people argue/disagree with me on this point. But I have always help my ground and will continue to do so J
The second way is also of great importance and something many of us don’t respect enough. I know this was one of the chief causes of my vitiligo for sure.
The third way is important also, but there is a very fine line with this one.
The next two are again, very important and will definitely help you get control of your vitiligo, as I have seen myself.
Vitamins and Immunity
He next lists the best vitamins for your immune system, one of them is VERY important for all of us since most of us are borderline deficient. This is the one I believe stopped my vitiligo from spreading.
He then talks about foods and herbs that can help the immune system and then how much exercise you should be doing, so you don’t overdo it.
As I mentioned above there is a fine line, and too much exercise can actually worsen your vitiligo because it can keep the sympathetic nervous system dominant, which is very damaging to your health.
He mentions a certain form of exercise here that I agree is one of the best things you can do for yourself because it actually helps balance out your nervous system.
The Thymus Gland
Under the next subheading Boosting Thymus Gland Function, he talks abut the Thymus gland and the immune system. This is also something that Dr. Wanakee Hill has talked about in her book.
He gives us three ways helpful to optimize Thymus gland function here.
Next is Step 3, and I am going to stop this review right here since this post is getting quite lengthy J.
