Garlic – A Natural Treatment For HPV

Warts are considered non-cancerous skin growths – different strains of the human papilloma virus (HPV) cause warts to form on different areas of the body. Warts that form on the fingers are typically called “common” warts, while those that appear on the soles of the feet are called plantar warts. To treat common warts, plantar warts, and corns without acid, cryotherapy, or excision, all you need are fresh garlic cloves, a knife, and athletic tape.

About 70 precent of warts dissipate on their own within two years without any treatment, though in some cases, more warts can appear as the initial wart shrinks. Warts can spread by direct contact with scratches or cuts in the skin.

Corns are small collections of thickened skin, typically along the bottoms or sides of the feet – they are typically caused by excessive friction within footwear, usually due to aggressive athletic activity or footwear that doesn’t fit properly.

Natural Treatment With Garlic

Start by thoroughly washing your hands with soap and water, and if you have any breaks in your skin, be sure to bandage them up to avoid direct contact with the wart.

Peel one clove of garlic, then cut it in half.

Use the cut side of one portion of garlic to gently rub the wart – the goal is to coat the entire wart with natural garlic juices. Do this for a minute or two, then use athletic tape to affix the remaining fresh garlic half against the wart – be sure to do this with the cut side of the garlic against the wart. You can cut and trim the garlic to cover the wart, but be sure that the portion of garlic that will remain in contact with the wart is a little larger than the wart itself to ensure contact if the garlic shifts.

You can apply this natural garlic treatment to warts and corns before going to bed, then remove it during the day to allow the area to breathe, and continue to reapply using fresh garlic each night.

For a small wart or corn, this garlic treatment will often lead to a complete cure within a week. For larger warts, you may need to continue with garlic application for a few weeks.

I just had a client use this garlic remedy for a large wart on his second toe. Within a few days, his wart shrunk by about half – as his wart shrivelled away, he could see blackening of the roots of the wart. Within a month of daily treatment, his toe was perfectly normal.

Garlic has long been known to have anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial properties. Koreans eat massive quantities of garlic through many of their staple dishes, kim chi being the most notable one, and epidemiologists in Korea have long believed that this partly explains their better-than-average record of immunity against various air-borne diseases.

A study in the International Journal of Dermatology (2005;44:612–5) confirms that garlic is a useful treatment for warts and corns.

A Pox on the CDC’s Vaccination Agenda: The Rise of Herpes Zoster (Shingles)

Sayer Ji
Activist Post

A new systematic review published in PLoS titled, “Herpes Zoster Risk Reduction through Exposure to Chickenpox Patients: A Systematic Multidiscplinary Review,” confirms that the widespread adoption of chickenpox vaccine over the past 30 years, which has resulted in a decline in chickenpox cases associated with infection from the wild-circulating virus, has led to a concerning increase in the incidence of herpes zoster (shingles), a far more serious expression of chickenpox virus (varicella zoster) infection.

This new review brings to the forefront a few critically important questions: are natural infectious challenges essential for establishing a healthy immune system, and is the chicken pox vaccine doing more harm than good?

Multiple Sclerosis: Environmental Factors and Treatments – Part 1

Introduction
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological disorder affecting anywhere from 250,000 to 450,000 people in the US.1 MS is a chronic inflammatory disease of the central nervous system (CNS) with underlying immune abnormalities.2 The disease is more common in women than men and peaks at age 20 to 40. Multiple sclerosis presents differently in different patients with the symptoms ranging from mild neurological impairments to debilitating deficits of motor, cognitive, and visual function. Multiple sclerosis pathogenesis is believed to involve an autoimmune response within the CNS, resulting in demyelination and axonal injury. Inflammation and demyelination seem to be the primary pathology in the relapsing forms of MS, whereas neurodegeneration seems to dominate in the progressive forms of the disease.3 There is no definitive cause or cure for MS, and multiple etiologies are discussed in the literature.

Coconut Oil Offers Hope for Antibiotic-Resistant Germs

I haven’t had a cold in over 5 years. Just when I feel as though I’m coming down with something, the scratchy, sore throat symptoms….gone the next morning! I also used to get these little blisters on the bottom of my right foot. Someone told me they are some sort of herpes virus. Since using the coconut oil I don’t get these annoying little things. Usually they would surface in the summer or when the weather turned warm. But I realized this fall that I hadn’t been bothered this past summer. I believe that the coconut oil really helps ward off the virus. I also have hepatitis C and my viral counts are so low that they are almost in the undetected category. I don’t even worry about this anymore. Nancy (more…)

Ted’s Remedies For Alzheimer’s Disease

12/09/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand writes: “Multi-VitaminsI believe Alzheimer’s disease is commonly caused by a virus, usually the Herpes Simplex virus, which I see quite often. The standard of treatment is four hourly doses for a minimum of 3 days of lysine and threonine (helps excretion, kills the virus in neurons and immune system), between 500 mg to 1000 mg, but I use 1/4 teaspoon to 1/3 teaspoon doses, for each, usually 1/3 to 1/4 for lysine and 1/4 for threonine. After that, a maintenance dose twice a day for each would be fine.

CURCUMIN: Master Healer

Cancer

It’s rare to see a drug that is shown, in study after study, to have remarkable and significant anti-cancer properties both in vivo and in vitro. But curcumin is such a drug, and it induces tumor apoptosis with no apparent toxicity.

To get just a sampling of how thoroughly curcumin has been studies in cancer over the past few years, consider the following. (more…)

Bad news for Eli Lilly Drug Trial/ More thought about beta-amyloid and infection

The Eli Lilly drug that has been in phase III trials has been stopped due to increased risk of skin cancer and, even worse, an acceleration of deterioration of AD compared to the placebo, the opposite of what was hoped for. This is yet another sad turn of events. Steve was in this study but we stopped in the winter due to several side effects; I believe he was on the actual drug for only about a month at that point. His hair started to grow out a very light gold color (one of the known effects that didn’t bother us)and when we stopped it, the darker hair grew in again. He had a half inch white stripe work its way out to the tips of his hair! I no longer have any regrets that we pulled him out of the study. (more…)

More scientific proof for folk remedies: tansy is a natural anti-viral herpes treatment

While many mainstream doctors still scoff at the idea that traditional, natural healing modalities — including therapies with plants — could actually work, hard scientific evidence is accumulating which proves the medicinal properties of plants. For example, NaturalNews recently reported on a study showing that the common weed milkweed can completely cure many skin cancers(http://www.naturalnews.com/031339_m…). Now comes word from UK and Spanish scientists that another plant long used in folk medicine, tansy, can treat herpes. (more…)

Natural Help for Beating Painful Shingles Outbreaks

Every year, millions of people suffer from outbreaks of shingles, a viral infection caused by the varicella-zoster virus (the same virus that causes chickenpox). Mainstream medical science tells us that there are no cures for shingles and that only mainstream drugs can effectively manage symptoms. In actuality, there are a number of natural remedies, which can help manage and relieve shingles and possibly even eliminate the virus.

The medical term for shingles is “herpes zoster”. After having chickenpox, the virus becomes dormant in nerve tissue – but can be reactivated years later as shingles. Shingles are most common in adults between 60 and 80 years old and those with weakened immune systems. (more…)
