    Vitiligo

    Anybody else with this annoying autoimmune disease? Going primal wouldn't by any chance help with this, would it?

    Have you tried the automimmune protocol of Paleo? I've seen it around here, recently.

    I wish I could tell you. My boyfriend has had it since he was a child, and he's probably the biggest promoter of Primal and what it has done for me, but he won't try it himself.

    I remember hearing on a podcast somewhere that a young kid had it pretty bad, and it went away fairly quickly with either Primal or Paleo. Pretty easy to document something like that. Unfortunately, it was at least a couple of months back, so I don't remember whose podcast it was or the guest's name.

    ETA: Okay, here it is: http://www.robbwolf.com/2011/01/04/t...on-episode-61/

    Also check the comments at the bottom of the linked page. More info there.

    Thanks, for this. I like these stories of "beating the odds." And I just found his podcast, weeks ago... I know, where have I been?

    I think it got a bit of an awareness boost when people found out Michael Jackson had it. Kind of like Parkinson's (which my dad had) and Michael J. Fox.

    Honestly, when I first met my boyfriend, I though he had a chemical burn on his hands. Didn't think twice, but later he said it was vitiligo. No big deal to me either way. In fact, I love beards on men, and told him I hoped he never shaved his. Turns out, he has a good-sized spot on his chin, so he'll never shave the beard off. Bonus for me!

    Tell him he can get rid of the chin spot with Protopic ointment. It works great on the face, jst not so great on hands and feet.

    As a happy bearer of these wondrous living tattoos, I am happy to say that going primal did not reduce the appearance of my vitiligo.

    Oh, no! Then he'll be able to shave off the beard!

    But, then, Husband, you're also about as pale as your "living tattoos," and they only show up if you tan and show them off...
