As the levels of sexual activity have increased so have the levels of sexual transmitted diseases. Genital warts have become more common among sexual active adults. This article looks at options for natural healing for genital warts. There are additional resource links at the end of this post.
Doing many searches, and lots of claims for natural remedies and removal, etc. for hpv and/or the cosmetic warts. Has anyone a proven natural remedy or removal for these things? Prefer something somewhat affordable and will not leave scars. I am familiar w/ natural practices, etc. and would appreciate only result-proven methods.
Genital warts are one of the most common sexually transmitted infections. The warts are harmless and affect the genital and anal area of both men and women and are most common in young sexually active adults.
Genital warts are caused by a group of viruses called Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). There are over 100 types of HPV, most of which do not cause disease in healthy people.
About 80% of sexually active people have HPV infection at some stage in their lives. Most HPV infections clear by themselves under the influence of the immune system.
Two of the sexually transmitted HPV types (6 and 11) are known to cause genital warts.
About one in ten people carry these HPV types but only one in a hundred will develop visible warts.
The HPV types that cause genital warts are harmless but other invisible high-risk HPV types, which are sexually transmitted, can increase a woman’s risk of cervical cancer.
Clinic treatments include:
Cryotherapy: Freezing of the warts by liquid nitrogen. Once weekly treatments are recommended and it may be necessary to make multiple visits to the clinic.
These include creams or solutions, which are applied on to the surface of the warts. These treatments can be prescribed by your doctor and can take from 4 to 16 weeks to work.
If there are a number of large or very persistent warts, referral to hospital for laser therapy, electro-cautery or surgery may be necessary.
Yoga, massage relaxation and not focusing on your problem can also help
The homeopathic remedy Thuja can also be helpful in the treatment of genital warts,
The prescription for Thuja is as follows:
One 30c tablet to be taken three times a day for three days over 4-5 weeks. Tablets should not be touched but dispensed into the lid of the tablet bottle, placed in the mouth and sucked not swallowed. Thuja should not be taken with food or drink.
