Question

What diet do you follow?

Answer

Over the years of attempting to manage my Vitiligo, I’ve tried a number of different diets including paleo, vegan, gluten free, dairy free and probably more!

Right now, I am a vegetarian that on the whole, eats natural unprocessed foods. I can’t say it’s resulted in any repigmentation, but my vitiligo hasn’t gotten any worse since going vegetarian.
