Why do I find nothing about Wood Betony for Vitilego??? Here or anywhere?? I found one sentence in an OLD herb book passed down in a friend's family. I had reached the point of having almost no melanin lleft. Been taking it now for about six months. The areas are coloring in again with melanin now, have more than doubled. Still have questions about it, but, guess no one is still around that knows anything about Wood Betony for vitilego...
