Top 4 Natural Remedies for Vitiligo That Work!

Here's a natural remedy for vitiligo that's guaranteed to work fast, along with other highly effective home remedies that will get rid of your white patches permanently with a minimum of fuss...


Hello. What natural treatment or home remedy can successfully treat vitiligo (white patches on skin)? I have this awful skin condition and do not want to use steroid creams or take immunosuppresive drugs. Can you help?


Vitiligo is thought to be an auto-immune disease primarily caused by an overload of fungus, bacteria, parasites and other unwanted microbes within the body and skin. These pathogens attack the cells, and in the case of vitiligo, cause the destruction of melanocyte cells - which are responsible for pigmentation of the skin. Symptoms of vitiligo include the loss of skin pigmentation, which usually occurs in one of three distinct patterns...

- Focal pattern: With this form, loss of skin color shows up in only a few small areas.
- Segmental pattern: The loss of skin color from this type occurs on one side of the body only.
- Generalized pattern (the most common form): With this type, depigmentation occurs on any part of the body in a symmetrical pattern - with the face, arms, underarms, legs, hands, feet, lips and groin being the most common areas.

The fact is, to treat vitiligo successfully you need multiple approaches rather than just one "silver bullet". The immune system must be strengthened - not suppressed or weakened as the medical profession would have you believe - and all toxic pathogens must be eliminated from the body (yes, you will definitely have them). Once you do this, you'll see your vitiligo disappear quite quickly, and if you continue to keep your immunity strong and your body "pathogen free", you'll never have to suffer from this problem again.

So here's some of the best ways to do this...

Home Remedy for Vitiligo #1... Organic Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-parasitic in nature. It helps tremendously with vitiligo due to its ability to promote repigmentation of the skin. Coconut oil is also a potent anti-inflammatory and natural skin soothing medication. For it to work effectively though, you must take coconut oil internally as well as use it externally on the skin. This is the secret. To take internally, consume 4-6 tablespoons of raw organic virgin coconut oil (such as these) every day with food. For external (topical) use, simply apply the oil directly on any white patches 2-3 times daily. Make sure you only use raw organic virgin coconut oil. Processed coconut oils will actually make your vitiligo worse.

Natural Remedy for Vitiligo #2... Olive Leaf Extract (OLE): Olive leaf extract is the ultimate pathogen killer. This powerful substance quickly rids the body of any fungus, bacteria and toxic parasites that may be residing inside of you (remember, you will definitely have them hiding in there). Olive leaf extract is also a tremendous immune building agent and skin healer. With all foreign pathogens gone from your body and your immune system strong once again, the cells, particularly the skin cells, will be free to grow and replicate healthily once again.

So OLE is definitely a "must have" supplement if you want to treat and cure vitiligo. To get the most out of it, you need to take OLE orally for a period of 6 months. This will give your body a potent and thorough internal cleanse. In addition to this, you can also use an olive leaf extract tincture and apply this directly to the white patches of your skin. Just make sure the OLE you buy is high strength and high quality or it wont work. This is extremely crucial as most of the olive leaf extract supplements on the market today are weak and contain cheap fillers. Here's a highly reputable supplier if you're interested... Real European Olive Leaf Extract Super-Strength. For dosages, start off with 1-2 capsules a day (on an empty stomach) for the first 2 weeks then increase to 3 capsules daily for a period of 24 weeks.

Natural Treatment for Vitiligo #3... Aloe Vera: Aloe vera taken internally and used on the skin is another potent home remedy for vitiligo. This plant contains strong anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, antibacterial and antioxidant properties that soothe and heal the skin. Aloe vera taken internally also destroys any harmful pathogens and is a strong cleansing agent. Either apply the juice directly to the skin from a fresh plant or use 100% pure organic aloe vera gel. For internal use, drink 1-2 oz of pure whole leaf aloe vera juice twice daily on an empty stomach.

Natural Cure for Vitiligo #4... Oregano Oil: Like olive leaf extract, oregano oil is also a powerful anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and pathogen killer that gives terrific results for vitiligo sufferers. In fact, many alternative health practitioners regularly recommend oregano oil for the treatment of various skin diseases, including vitiligo, because it works so well. Make sure you buy the oregano oil that can be taken internally as well as used on the skin (Zane Hellas Oregano Oil). For optimum results, add 2-3 drops of food grade oregano oil to 8 oz of clean filtered water and drink on an empty stomach. Do this twice a day. In addition to this, add 1-2 drops of oregano oil to a teaspoon of organic coconut oil and apply to the affected areas. Be sure to test on a small area first to make sure the mixture doesn't burn (never apply pure oregano oil directly to the skin, always dilute it with coconut oil first). Only a slight tingling should be felt when the oil is applied. Do this 2-3 times daily for best results.

Other Handy Tips and Home Remedies for Treating and Reversing Vitiligo...

a) Take Broken Cell Wall Chlorella: This astonishing blue-green algae contains all the essential nutrients your body needs every day to cleanse, repair and regenerate itself. Of course, this includes skin repair and regeneration. Here's what it looks like... Broken Cell Wall Chlorella.

b) Take Copper: Copper, along with zinc, is needed for normal skin pigmentation and is well-known for its ability to reverse vitiligo symptoms. Either take a copper supplement such as colloidal copper or simply drink filtered water that's been kept in a copper water jug or pitcher.

c) Ginkgo Biloba: The use of ginko biloba for vitiligo was mentioned in a Cochrane Review of treatments for this disease published back in 2015. 40-60 mg, 2-3 times a day, 10 minutes before a meal was the prescribed dosage. According to the report, it was effective at helping reduce the symptoms and severity.

So hopefully this helps you out Fay.

Good luck and all the best!

How Long Does it Take to Work?
by: Anonymous

I have discovered a white patch on the inside part of my thigh. Dr believed it to be vitiligo but gave me an anit-fungal cream for it. I read about home remedies that I could try and are easily accessible. I came up with coconut oil and aloe vera gel. I've been alternating using both for about 3 weeks now. I haven't noticed any change in the white spot and I'm not sure if I should keep going with them or stop and look for another solution. Not sure how long it takes to notice any changes?

It usually takes at least 6-8 weeks before any noticeable changes occur. However, you MUST take organic coconut oil and aloe vera internally as well as using them externally (topically) to receive the full benefit. In addition, don't forget to look at taking the olive leaf extract for 3-6 months to kill the parasites and fungus that you'll have in your body. And don't forget, OLE is also a powerful skin healer too.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you.

Vitiligo Cure
by: TJ

Does the above mentioned methods actually cure vitiligo? Also, do you recommend using sunscreen when going outside?

Jul 21, 2016
by: Troy

Every persons body responds differently to natural remedies TJ. With that said, if they don't happen to "cure" your vitiligo completely, they will at the very least help it considerably! In regards to using sunscreens, we recommend you ONLY ever use natural sunscreens (100% completely natural). Commercial sunscreens are loaded with toxic chemicals that literally get burnt into your skin when you use them! Don't touch them with a ten foot pole. They are actually one of the main causes and precursors to skin cancer.

All the best to you TJ.

Aloe Vera
by: Anonymous


I have just started taking Good n Natural Aloe Vera 5000mg tablets (one after a meal as recommended), along with putting 99.9% Aloe Vera Gel on my face first thing in the morning and just before going to bed for suspected Vitiligo. I have white marks around my eyes and eyelids and a few dotted on my face.

Do you think that this enough to start with or would you recommend I combine this with something else?

Mar 02, 2017

While the aloe vera is certainly good, you need to kill the microbes inside that are doing most of the damage. A parasite cleanse is essential for treating vitiligo, or any auto-immune problem for that matter. Try and utilize all 4 recommendations listed above for best results, particularly the olive leaf extract & oregano oil, which are two of the most powerful internal cleansers yet discovered.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Thank you!
by: Jenna

Thank you so much for your article. I began getting white spots around my eyes, lips and nails when I was about 12. I am now in my mid 50's and do not have any pigment at all. Back then they didn't know much about vitiligo and didn't really care to find out about it or research it. Over the years I thought it might be a nutritional deficiency or a disorder caused by poor liver function. This is the first real honest information I have found and I will try the recommendations. I am truly encouraged. Perhaps this will help with my low energy and depression. God Bless!

If I plan on using the olive leaf and oregano together, can I put the drops in the same cup of water?

Aug 27, 2017
by: Troy

Yes you can, however, they are both much more potent when taken separately. Try and take them at least one hour apart from each another. :)
