Hi Viti Friends!
I know it’s been awhile since I’ve updated. I’ve just been really busy focusing on my health and moving houses…YUCK! I hate moving. I wish there was a better way 🙁
But the good news is, that I have been seeing some pigment return on my left hand! I put together a collage so you could see the consistent progress. What’s interesting to me is that this is the same area I first began to lose pigment 2 years ago.
As you can see in the photos, I had no progress to report from 9/8/2013 till 6/6/2014. That’s 9 months of no change despite lots of effort.
I started Nutritional Balancing in March of this year (2014) and it has only been since then that I have NOT gotten any new spots (only continued very slow spreading of existing ones) and I’ve started to repigment.
I am currently taking a number of supplements and I drink 10-12 oz of carrot juice everyday which helps prevent sunburn and also encourages repigmentation.
I’ve been sitting in the sun only a couple of days a week for about 10 minutes or so with Merry Clinic’s Vitilax Skin Oil on my spots. They recommend doing it everyday, but I don’t always get around to it. Imagine what my results would be if I actually did it everyday? I think need to start making sure I get more sun exposure :). It’s just been SO hot here! Who wants to sit in the sun when it’s 106 degrees outside? Yeah, me neither!
In addition to the Vitilax skin oil, I have a skin oil and cream that Dr. Wanakee Hill sells on her website TheWellnessWell.net, and I’m thinking about trying hers at the same time on my other hand and leg to see which works better for me… Wanakee on the right, Vitilax on the left :)!
The Vitilax skin oil is a blend of grape seed oil, psoralea oil, bergamot oil, and carrot seed oil. Dr. Hill’s is a blend of a bunch of different oils. Here’s what it says in the description on her website:
Vitiligo Pigment Boosting Oil contains more than two dozen essential oils, herbal oils and nutritional oils to potentially stimulate dormant cells to produce pigment for those who suffer from vitiligo and other pigment loss ailments and diseases.
The white spots on my legs have slowed down, although I do still see some expansion of existing spots.
I recently discovered I may have an egg allergy, which may be very significant to my healing. Only time will tell….and I will keep you all posted in the meantime.
Thanks for reading!
