Why Stress May Trigger Vitiligo & How to Reduce Stress in Your Life
Living with vitiligo in itself is very stressful; it changes our self-image and we are always self-conscious of the white patches that adorn our skin. Now imagine knowing that the way your body and mind deals with stress may actually play a role in triggering vitiligo. This is the dilemma facing every person living with vitiligo which, in turn, may become emotionally debilitating.
In this week’s episode, Nathalie will be joined by adjunct Instructor, Joanne Giovanni, to discuss the physiological effects of stress and how they may trigger vitiligo and other autoimmune diseases. Joanne will also share simple techniques which can be used to reduce stressors and their negative effects on your body.
For over 18 years, Joanne Giovanni has been teaching stress management classes at the St.Louis Community Colleges and has been a guest lecturer and meditation leader for local organizations.
