Self-Care Tips for Vitiligo
In addition to the treatments mentioned above, there are many self-care methods that you can do at home to help to heal your vitiligo:
- Make sure you get enough sleep, at least 7 to 8 hours per night. The best time of night to sleep is from 11 pm to 7 am. Sleep will help to restore your Kidney Qi.
- Eat foods that have a black or very dark color, such as black sesame seeds, beets, walnuts, etc. Black is the color associated with the Kidneys, and traditionally, dark-colored foods are known to be beneficial for Kidney Qi.
- Protect your lower back and keep it warm – this is the center of your Kidney Qi
- Keep stress under control, by doing yoga, tai chi, or any type of gentle exercise
Chinese herbal medicine is holistic medicine. The more you do to take care of your health, the sooner your vitiligo condition will improve.
