Vitiligo foods to avoid: what are they?

Let’s start by remembering that Vitiligo is a chronic dermatological disease.

One of the natural ways to counteract the onset or proliferation of Vitiligo is to eat healthily, getting as few chemicals into the body as possible.

Eating healthy means taking care of yourself and your health. But, in the case of some diseases, nutrition can help cure them. Obviously, nutrition is not enough. It must be accompanied by specialized medical care.

Let’s now look at vitiligo and nutrition in detail.

Vitiligo diet: recommended foods

Vitiligo can be kept under control through nutrition. Being a disease that affects the largest organ, the skin, it becomes essential to eat correctly, avoiding harmful and dangerous foods.

In fact, when you eat badly, your liver, kidneys and intestines get tired. This means that they are no longer able to eliminate the harmful waste that will therefore be accumulated in the outermost organ, namely the skin.

This buildup of bad waste can cause or worsen various types of skin diseases, including Vitiligo.
