Warts

Warts are harmless growths on our skin. They’re caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) infections. If you can see warts, this means the virus is active. Your methylation process was for some reason fine-tuned to enable DNA responsible for the virus replication to become active.

Conventional wart treatments include actinic peels, laser surgical procedure, and freezing. They do not address the HPV infection. These treatments can also be high priced and cause damage to the skin. The HPV vaccination is much worse, but more about it later in the article.

There is a lot of confusion around HPV virus. Whether it is harmful or not. Whether is causes cancer or it does not cause cancer. The truth is most of the HPV causes are harmless. HPV-term covers over 200 strains of the virus that are known to human today. But active HPV usually is a good lead to checking how good your DNA methylation is.

In 90% cases the HPV infections go away on their own after around 2 years or less. 70% goes away after less than a year.

There are some natural remedies, that help to address the HPV infection and warts. Without the need of looking into the conventional methods. Lets have a look at some of them.

Cider

Apple cider vinegar is thought to contain salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is a common wart medication that peels away infected dermis. The vinegar also have some natural, antimicrobial properties, that may aid the battle against HPV. This assumption is based on this study, showing a better recovery rate from dermal warts, if salicylic acid was applied.

Treatments were well tolerated. IgG or IgM antibodies or both to human papilloma virus (HPV) types 1 or 2 or both were detected significantly more frequently in the actively treated group 6 weeks after entry.

This basically means, the patients, who were using the acid to cure warts, were fighting the virus through their own antibodies. The ointment, applied externally, was comprised of monochloroacetic acid crystals and 60% salicylic acid.

However this study finds, that the cure rate might be more related to the chloroacetic acid, that than salicylic. This is, if the treatment is combined with freezing.

In theory this would mean taking a strong apple vinegar, mixing it with a fat agent (like coconut butter) and freezed, then applied as an ointment on the warts. There is no study to test this out, but guess it is worth a try.

Banana peels

The potassium in banana peel is accounted to help the body to fight HPV. However, I was not able to find research, where anything other than potassium hydroxide (a pretty strong chemical) being successful in removing warts.

So this would go to me into a pool of ‘beliefs’. Placebo effect might play a role with this. Other than that banana peels look like a hoax.

Garlic

Components of garlic (Allium sativum) have been shown to have antiviral activity and to inhibit cellular proliferation of virally infected cells. In one placebo-controlled trial, the application of chloroform extracts of garlic was reported to result in the complete resolution of cutaneous warts with no recurrence after 3–4 months.

The suggestions and results are:

  • Water extract of garlic: “[F]ive cases received the aqueous garlic extract for 30–40 days, which resulted only in the disappearance of small warts and partial improvement of larger warts. Treatment with the aqueous extract of garlic needed a period of more than 2 months to achieve a partial recovery in the patients.”
  • Fat-soluble extract of garlic: “Twenty-three patients with 2–96 warts, and nine patients with 1–2 corns were treated by applying the lipid extract. In this group, complete recovery was observed in all cases with warts after 1–2 weeks of treatment (Fig. 1). Seven out of nine patients with corn(s) showed complete recovery (Fig. 2) while two cases showed marked improvement close to full recovery with no further improvement on continuation of treatment. The period for the treatment of corn(s) in this group was between 10 and 20 days.”
  • Chloroform: methanol (control group): The control group showed no improvement.

In this case again. Find a lipid, mix it with fresh garlic and apply to the warts. There is no confirmation in this study on the levels of HPV antibodies.

Orange bark

Looks like another hoax. There is no evidence here, no studies, not even a mention of what could be the healing substance.

This remedy includes rubbing an orange peel on the wart once a day. Allegedly, the wart will change colour, die off, then abate off. This may require 2 weeks of continuous rubbing. No mention on whether the phase of the moon affects the treatment.

Pineapple

Pineapple has bromelain, an ezyme that helps to digest proteins. Bromelain is known and confirmed in scientific research to fight viruses. Bromelain contains proteolytic enzymes, which have antiedematous, anticoagulant, and antimetastatic properties.

This one would be rather more related to eating more pineapple or drinking juice. The method of the study was:

The objective of this research was to investigate the potential use of bromelain enzyme, a proteolytic enzyme contained in the flesh and stem of a pineapple fruit, as antiviral agent against HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) that causes AIDS (Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome), Hepatitis C Virus (HCV), and Human Papiloma Virus (HPV) […] In this resaech, the patients were provided with 2 glasses of fresh pineapple juice every day. […] The resaerch relied on the possibility that bromelain enzyme could cause some damages on viral envelopes that has protein as one of its structural component. 

As we have linked warts with HPV before, this is yet another link, that may be actually working. Worth to try out.

Potato

Americans declare that potato juice can remove a wart, however no reports exist related to its capability. Another hoax!

Tea tree oil

Tea oil is a powerful antimicrobial cure. It’s also linked to deal positively with skin ‘situations’, generally known as epidermis infections. The oil’s antiviral properties may also assist to put off warts.

I was able to find studies on this topic as well. The research was done in Saudi Arabia and can’t see if it was peer-reviewed. However the findings encourage further exploration of this cure. Especially that no harmful effects are expected.

The oil of the tea tree was used twice daily on two patients to treat their skin warts on different anatomical locations. The wart on the first patient needed 10 days to be totally removed, while it took 20 days in the second patient due to poor medication compliance. This paper sheds light on TTO as an efficient and safe treatment for common warts.

In the end it is worth to understand, how to limit HPV activity. Even for the harmless strains. Generally speaking HPV vaccination is not advised. In case you are in doubt, it is sufficient to read this peer-reviewed study to set your mind.

Among the remaining 120 patients, 30 were diagnosed as having definite vaccine-related symptoms, and 42 were diagnosed as probable. Among these 72 patients, the age at initial vaccination ranged from 11 to 19 years (average 13.6 ± 1.6 years), and the age at appearance of symptoms ranged from 12 to 20 years (average 14.4 ± 1.7 years). The patients received the initial human papillomavirus vaccine injection between May 2010 and April 2013. The first affected girl developed symptoms in October 2010, and the last two affected girls developed symptoms in October 2015.

Based on these sequential events, it is suggested that human papillomavirus vaccination is related to the transiently high prevalence of the previously mentioned symptoms including chronic regional pain syndrome and autonomic and cognitive dysfunctions in the vaccinated patients.

It’s worth to remember the below, while facing warts or non-lethal HPV infections:

  • If they’re not causing you any discomfort, it’s best to leave warts alone. HPV warts that occur on the body, such as plantar or common warts, generally do not cause pain, so if they do not bother you, you should just leave them alone. Usually they go away on their own after period of time.
  • Reduce your stress levels. Remember that stress can have a significant effect on your immune system. This includes limiting EMF-related stress.
  • Eat more folic acid. Folates are critical enzyme co-factors for DNA and RNA synthesis and methylation. It has a strong anti-viral effect (HPV), most important nutrient of the brain. Best to use L-5 mthyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF= monoglutamate form) the only folate that crosses the blood brain barrier.
