Dr. Montes' Book on Vitiligo and Nutrition
Dr. Leopoldo F. Montes, a longtime friend of the NVF, states "this is not a book
to be read quickly by patients expecting to get a lot of their pigment back
immediately. If the treatment of vitiligo worked like that, dermatologist would
seem like wizards. This should be regarded more like a reference book to which
physicians and patients can reach for information and support. It shows that
often it is possible to detect and correct a nutritional problem, and thus find
ways to help regain the skin color and halt the spread of vitiligo." While
placing emphasis on the use of nutritional substances and vitamins, he seeks to
help others alleviate their suffering as he is doing with his patients.
