Yan is a vitiligo survivor who investigates the hidden truth about his devastating skin condition. After a harrowing breakup, he finds refuge in the scientific underground. He never expected to make a choice that will change one hundred million human lives.
On this upstream journey to the mysterious source, Yan relentlessly looks for clues in the body and environment. He will bring together shamans, scientists, celebrities and top executives to share valuable secrets and solve the puzzle.
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.
It is not always easy, or even possible, to treat vitiligo. Doctors are not infallible. No single therapy is clearly superior to the others. Sometimes, vitiligo symptoms do not readily suggest a clear solution. Other times, there is a range of possible treatments with different side-effects.
With the recent progress in research, vitiligo has ripened enough to become a low-hanging fruit amidst other neglected diseases. But a complete cure is as much a dream as it is a challenge. New clinical trials are underway. Which pharmaceutical company will beat others to the race through the Death Valley?
In A No-Nonsense Guide To Vitiligo, the author dashes from the root cause to future lifestyle. He reveals what you really need to know and what you must avoid, in order to manage this weird, complicated disease.
