Proper exercises means patients feel warm at the end of exercise in Winter, and sweat a little bit but no palpitation in Summer. Heavy sweating and difficult breath is not good for health or even cause severe consequences. So treatment and prevent go together for vitiligo patients.

Eating breakfast is very important for vitiligo patients. Breakfast is meaningful and no matter how much they eat for breakfast, they would not get fat. Many years ago, there was a breakfast fair in USA, nutritionists from various country discussed about breakfast from different countries worldwide, and make conclusion that eating breakfast is helpful in memory, improves study and work efficiency and constitution.

How Does Vitiligo Develop?

The beginning of vitiligo and the severity of pigment loss differs with each individual. Light skinned people usually notice the pigment loss during the summer as the contrast between depigmented skin and suntanned skin becomes distinct. People with dark skin may observe the onset of vitiligo at any time. Individuals who have severe cases may lose pigment over their entire body surface. There is no way to predict how much pigment an individual will lose. Illness and stress can result in more pigment loss. The degree of pigment loss can also vary within each vitiligo patch, and a border of abnormally dark skin may encircle a patch of depigmented skin.

Vitiligo frequently begins with a rapid loss of pigment, which may be followed by a lengthy period when the skin color does not change. Later, pigment loss may resume, perhaps after the individual has suffered physical trauma or stress. The loss of color may continue until, for unknown reasons, the process stops. Cycles of pigment loss followed by periods of stability may continue indefinitely. It is rare (but possible) for a patient with vitiligo to repigment or regain skin color spontaneously. Most patients who say that they no longer have vitiligo may actually have become depigmented and are no longer bothered by contrasting skin color. While such patients appear to be "cured", they really are not. People who have vitiligo all over their bodies do not look like albinos because the color of their hair may not change (or it can be dyed) and eye color does not change.

Treatment of Vitiligo

Talking about vitiligo treatment, we think the most important thing should focus on root causes. Actually, there are many things that can lead to vitiligo, which is rather complicated, so we can not treat all the cases in the same way. So, finding out the exact reason and make the right diagnosis is the first thing patients should do before their treatment. So, running all necessary tests is very important and closely related with the outcome of the treatment. Second, according to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, vitiligo happens because of imbalance of yin and yang and immune disorder, which leads to worse micro-circulation and damage the melanophore. So, The principle of traditional Chinese medicine in treating vitiligo: it can improve blood circulation and remove stasis to improve micro-circulation and increase blood supply to lesions, duly promoting synthesis of tyrosine, inhibiting damage of melanin, stopping expansion of vitiligo; Second, TCM can benefit qi and increase essense to promote growth of melanophore, and activation as well as repair residual melanophore; Third, it can tonify kidney to relieve depression and relieve uneasiness so that the yin and yang will be balanced and immune system in order, prevent relapse of vitiligo.

Besides, we also have other therapies, like acupuncture, massage, cupping, excimer melanin activation therapy, regulation & Reconstruction of immunity, photochemotherapy, CAS melanophore gene intervention treatment, superoxide blood purification therapy, etc. which treat the vitiligo from multiple dimensions and different causes in order to ensure the outcome. More details you can refer to other therapies.
