Alternative Treatments for HPV

Alternative treatments for HPV can be found in several of the alternate therapies, including Traditional Chinese Medicine, Homeopathy, Naturopathy and Ayurvedic medicine. Qualified practitioners in these areas can be found in most areas of the country; check with the various associations relating to that field. Many alternative therapies focus on balancing the functions and energy of the body, treating the body as a whole entity, to enable the body to heal itself.

There is no cure for HPV, either through mainstream medicine or alternative therapies and treatments for HPV. The Human Papillomavirus is like other viruses that attack our bodies – antibiotics have no effect and the virus has to be allowed to run its course once it has invaded our body. Most human viruses will eventually leave the body; people with a strong, effective immune system have the best chance of fighting off a virus like HPV.

Any treatment that is given is aimed at relieving the symptoms of the virus, but most strains of HPV have no visible symptoms. This fact also means that people are often unaware that they have been infected with HPV. There are some high-risk strains of HPV that are precursors to cervical cancer and other genital cancers, while others may cause genital warts. There are treatments for these symptoms of HPV but the treatment does not impact the virus itself. Like HPV, the symptoms of the virus often go away on their own, without intervention.

One of the simplest and most common symptoms of the Human Papillomavirus is warts - like the common warts kids often get on their hands, plantar warts on the feet and flat warts on the face and neck. There are several alternative and natural treatments for common warts like these and many have been effectively in use for decades. Alternative wart treatments tend to be safer to use, being less toxic and corrosive than the over-the-counter preparations. These natural wart treatments may take a little longer to work but they are very effective.

Try putting a few drops of pure tea tree oil or pure lemon essential oil directly onto the wart 2 or 3 times a day; cover the area between treatments. The wart will come away in a couple of weeks, leaving fresh new skin underneath. Old home remedies that many people believe in include onion juice, garlic juice or apple cider vinegar, applied in the same way as the tea tree or lemon oil.

There are also more serious HPV strains that can cause genital warts or lead to cervical cancer and other genital cancers. Most of the high-risk strains that can lead to cancer have no symptoms so a person can be unaware they have been infected. This fact alone leads is responsible for the spread of this contagious virus. Many HPV symptoms, and also the virus itself, will disappear from the body, removed by your immune system. Many alternative treatments for HPV are aimed at strengthening your immune system so that your body is better able to deal with the virus.

Alternative treatments and natural therapies make use of herbs and plants that have been shown to have anti-vital properties to help get rid of the virus from your body. These include curcumin which is in turmeric and has anti-viral properties; beta-sitosterols which are plant sterols that have been successful in managing viral infections; escharotic treatments use bloodroot and other caustic herbs to remove warts.

You could find alternative HPV treatments in the fields of acupuncture, diet, nutrition, exercise, herbal medicine, massage, supplements and vitamins. Of the many natural substances that are available, the following are the main ones used in cases of HPV because of their positive effect on the immune system, cell repair and cell growth.

  • Beta-carotene
  • Folic acid
  • Selenium
  • Echinacea
  • Golden seal
  • Shitake mushrooms
  • Beta-mannan

You should remember that alternative treatments should not take the place of medical treatment for HPV. While conventional medicine might not always acknowledge the effectiveness of natural therapies, there are some very useful alternative treatments that will help your body fight off an HPV infection.
