ABOUT THE BOOK
In this unique book, Yan Valle – author, campaigner and CEO of Vitiligo Research Foundation – will guide you through symptoms, decipher medical jargon and explore treatments, so you can choose the proper therapy for yourself – or knowingly abstain from it.
The smart and accessible book is comprised of three sections: Body, Environment, and Treatments. Of course, there is tremendous overlap across the sections, as they are interdependent. In fact, you could think of the three as a tripod, upon which any treatment is balanced. One needs all three to have any sustainable success in treating vitiligo – or indeed any other condition. Dashing from the root cause to a future lifestyle, the author reveals what you really need to know and what you must avoid, in order to manage this weird, complicated disease.
A half of fifty seven bite-sized chapters recounts a conversation or situation that the author has been a part of as CEO of VR Foundation. Real-life examples are used to illustrate different vitiligo treatment scenarios, which you can discuss further with your doctor.
