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.

The new and updated color version of this book "Vitiligo-Nutritional Therapy" has been released. If you wish to order the book, you can send a money order or bank cashier's check addressed to Jan Petrik for $100 (if the book is to be mailed within the U.S.) or $110 (to foreign countries) at the following address:
