HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection that affects both men and women. It’s so common that most sexually active people will get some variety of it at some point, even if they have few sexual partners.
What Is HPV? Common Symptoms
So, what is HPV? HPV is a group of very common — and highly infectious — viruses that may be shared during sexual activity through skin-to-skin contact. According to the World Health Organization, there are more than 100 types of HPV; 13 of these are high-risk, meaning they’re known to cause cancer. There are many HPV strains that are benign and don’t cause many issues, but HPV has also been linked with cancers of the anus, vulva, vagina and joystick. Out of the 100 types, there are two types (16 and 18) that lead to 70 percent of cervical cancers and cervical lesions. Types 6 and 11 are non-cancer causing, but they can cause genital warts and respiratory papillomatosis, which causes tumors to grow in the respiratory tract. (3)
Most people don’t know they have HPV, and HPV symptoms often clear up on their own. Depending on the type of HPV virus, human papillomavirus infection symptoms may include: (4)
Genital warts: Usually white with a raised “cauliflower” top. A genital wart may be uncomfortable or cause pain, but it usually doesn’t itch. Genital warts in women often appear on the vulva but may also be found inside the vagina, on the cervix or around the anus. In men, genital warts are typically found on the joystick or scrotum or around the anus.
Common warts: Rough bumps that are usually found on the hands, fingers or elbows.
Plantar warts: Hard, grainy, fleshy warts that appear on the soles of the feet and may become flattened due to pressure on the feet. Plantar warts may cause pain when standing. Because HPV is so contagious, it’s easy for it to spread, say, from a towel used by an infected person. Be sure to wear shoes or sandals when walking around public places, such as community swimming pools or gym showers.
Flat warts: Depending on the strain of HPV, flat-topped warts may appear on the face, the legs in women and in the beard area on men.
Oral warts: Lesions may form in the mouth.
HPV-16 is a high-risk subtype that can lead to oropharyngeal (mouth and pharynx) cancer. Signs of HPV-positive oral cancer include the following: (5)
Late signs of the disease:
Coughing up blood
A lump on the neck or in the cheek
Other signs and symptoms that may indicate oral cancers: (6)
White or red patch on the tonsils
Jaw pain or swelling
Unexplained weight loss
Enlarged lymph nodes
HPV Risk Factors and Causes:
Nearly every sexually active person will get HPV at some point. How do you get HPV? It’s usually caused by vaginal or anal sex, but it can also spread through MouthAction. Because HPV spreads through skin-to-skin contact, sexual intercourse isn’t necessary to catch it. In fact, sometimes an infected mother can infect her newborn during delivery. (7, Most anyone who is sexually active is at risk for HPV, but the level of risk can be lowered by using a condom or avoiding sex altogether.
How to Treat HPV Naturally
Here, I lay out how to treat HPV naturally. Much like treating herpes, natural antiviral treatments can help. There are many home remedies that contain antiviral properties, such as herbal supplements, using essential oils and eating certain foods. Try these remedies to keep HPV symptoms at bay.
Eat a wart-removal diet filled with lots of antiviral herbs. Help prevent or get rid of warts by consuming immune-boosting foods:
Foods high in vitamin C, such as citrus fruits, bell peppers and strawberries
Probiotic foods like fermented vegetables, such as kimchi or sauerkraut and live-cultured yogurt and Greek yogurt
Green leafy vegetables, which provide vitamin A and important minerals
High-selenium foods, such as Brazil nuts and mushrooms
Raw cheeses made from goat’s milk, sheep’s milk and A2 cow’s milk
Kvass, a fermented drink made from rye bread with lactobacilli probiotics and has blood- and liver-cleansing properties
Kombucha, a fermented tea high rich in probiotics and B vitamins
Goat’s milk kefir or coconut kefir — contain lots of probiotics; the goat’s milk version has more than the coconut version, which is dairy-free
2. Antiviral Herbs
Ingest or apply antiviral herbs to boost the immune system and inhibit viruses, as well as to provide cardiovascular, digestive and anti-inflammatory support. You can consume antiviral herbs as herbal teas, infusions or herbal-infused oils. The top 10 antiviral herbs are:
Oregano and oregano oil
Goldenseal is another herbal option, which is a great antimicrobial that acts as an effective natural antibiotic and immune system booster.
The good news is that Swissgarde immune booster contains, Echinacea, garlic oil, Ginger extract. Which help invigorate the body's immune system thereby assisting the body to repel germs and viruses.
Our supper cider contains, cider vinegar, Apple pectin and propolis which assist in keeping the urine acidic, thereby reducing the potential for infection.
