What is HPV?
Genital human papillomavirus (HPV) is a common sexually transmitted infection that affects humans by establishing itself in the skin and mucous membranes. There are over 40 types of HPV, many of them causing most people to exhibit few to no symptoms and therefore it is possible to have no realization that you are carrying and can spread the disease.
HPV can cause serious health concerns such as warts on the genitalia or even the throat in some rare cases; but an HPV infection also can lead to cervical cancer in women as well as other cancers of the throat, anus, penis, and vulva as well as head and neck cancer. The HPV and cancer link is very real and a serious risk for not only women, but men as well. A developing cancer can take over 10 years to become apparent, allowing plenty of time to treat any pre-cancerous lesions. For that reason, there currently is an HPV vaccine that can protect against the virus, which you may have been reading about in the news.
Natural HPV Treatment
We have a number of home remedies and natural treatments for genital HPV, but we are always looking to discover and share more with the community. Currently some of our more popular remedies are hydrogen peroxide, castor oil, and the combination of vitamin C, garlic, and a multi-vitamin as a cure for HPV symptoms.

Re: HPV & Alkaline Diet - I just wanted to share some information for those who are struggling with this illness and working on becoming healthy again.
I have not myself had a positive diagnosis. I've seen my Dr. on various occasions and she never seemed to be able to tell me what was wrong, Meanwhile, my BF and I were suffering from something but were unsure as to what. Then he came across this website and it has shed so much light onto whats going on with our bodies.
In saying that, we've just recently started doing our research on how to cure HPV, everyone on here seems to swear by ACV, so we've begun to drink water with 1TBS of ACV. another thing I found was that HPV & bv have a lot to do with the PH of your body. An acidic body is a sickness magnet, so do some research on what foods are alkaline and what foods are acidid, we also tested our water, and found, once boiled it was PH neutral - Alkaline.
One thing I want to stress is a normal healthy diet should be 60% Alkaline food 40% Acidic. HOWEVER when sick your diet should be 80% Alkaline 20% Acidic.
I hope this helps someone as much as all the other posts have helped me.
God bless, and peace be with you all.

HPV, or herpes I think it's all the same family. I will share what worked for me: boost immune system with antioxidants, vitamin C I never take water alone, I put CELL FOOD drops, astragalus root drops, thuja drops or make tea, crushed vitamin C (no more than 1000mg otherwise will get diarrhea), 1/2 tsp baking soda- 1 is always going inside water NEVER more than 1. sleep at least 7 hours daily soak in baking soda bath - usually fill tub to cover my rear sitting down and add about a good 1/4 cup of baking soda, I also dissolve in hot water later I change so I sit in warm-cold water. Do it 2x a day or 1x a day and stop when you like, this will keep the rest of the body alkaline.
BAKING SODA MAKES THE BODY ALKALINE as long as our bodies are alkaline there's no outbreak of anything including colds. If you have outbreaks in mouth gargle with baking soda 2x's a day AM & PM. I boil water, take glass place 1/2 tsp of baking soda stir in hot water (4oz h2o per 1/2 tsp) and let cool until youn can handle in mouth as gargle. you'll have enough to gargle twice and drink the rest...do not drink the gargle, throw out. LISTEN EVERYTHING HAS A SOLUTION IN LIFE. If God heals you AWESOME and if HE decides to heal you with natural medicine great. This is not the end of life, it's bothersome but we were created for our bodies to restore itself naturally; therefore the answers are in nature there's just a big mafia who doesn't want to expose the plants that heal, malaria, aids, etc. theres alos a recipe in the case you don't mind the liquor: This detoxifies the body & cures all: 5 radishes, 5 lemons with peel, 5 tbsp honey, 2 garlic heads (350g) raw peeled in 1/4 liquor in a glass container for 10 store away in fridge. Remove to strain place back in container for 2 days. After two days can take in drops with water or milk as mentioned in video (1:24 minutes) below. Cannot repeat this more than 1x a year. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=OwgQ0Rsr5Ts One lady mentioned instead of liquor can use lemon but this one can be 1tbsp after meals for 21 days...3x's a year only.

* try to include in daily diet/juices : papaya with seeds on empty stomach (excellent against parasites only 7 days on empty) otherwise can drink anytime. Pineapple, carrots, aloe Vera, garlic, red grapes, broccoli, cauliflower, spirulina, oregano, red pepper, chlorophyll ALL needs to be raw, preferably organic. Look for antiviral and antioxidant herbs, raw veggies, fruits. Garlic is a must DAILY AT LEAST 2 a day raw.
*Place the lining of raw onion on the wart 2x's a day.
*i don't eat: cane sugar I replace all sugar with honey or agave. no milk, no flour, no nuts of any type, oils with nut like descendent (sunflower, peanut).
calendula tea: 1 cup boiling water infuse in low heat for 20 minutes. For 2 weeks
tree tea same as above can also put oil on wart.
1 c oil, honey, 1/2 lemon mix and apply for 20 minutes
Make baking soda paste with h2o instead of ACV Or hydrogen peroxide straight.
horsetail on the wart, becareful can burun if have open wound, instead you can drink in water or tea.
1/2 tsp turmeric, 2 lemons, 1/2 yogurt leave for 25 minutes. If genitals.
The inner circle of pineapple on the wart with bandage on to keep from falling
the leaf of the figs has a milk like substance that if you place that milk substance on the wart they will be gone forever.
raw potatoe juice on the wart, can make by peeling potatoe and slicing let it strain or you can blend then strain. Place juice with q-tip on the wart.
garlic paste, blend garlic cloves until you have paste...be careful garlic will take them off forever but can leave a stain. To avoid stain/burn place vitamin E oil before you place the paste.
I've also heard banana peel warts come right off in 2 hours.

This natural formulation is based on the defeating your HPV topically. It is based on percentage of intake in a Liquid format.
Almond Oil 70%
Tea Tree Oil 25%
Jojoba Oil 5%
This is a topical formulation and is based on frequent as possible use. I would direct you to apply the following way:
Clean the affected area and dry thoroughly. Apply the serum with a cotton swab directly on the affected area every 4 to 5 hours per day.

Hello. I am a male, 23 and I used Apple Cider directly on my skin (genital area). I have little warts and it got rid of them but unfortunately it left marks there due to the acid effect I guess. I am a pretty dark skin type and now I have these little white spots that look like scars.. My question is whether my skin color will ever return to normal or is there anything I can do to heal it? And for future use: how do I use it properly without burning my skin?

Hello Natural Earth Clinic readers, here is how I cured myself from HPV. I was diagnosed with this horrible disease back in 2011. No matter what I tried I my pap came back positive for for low grade non-cancerous HPV. Finally I did some research on antiviral herbs. For a few months I took astragalus, echinacea, and pau'darco herbs. Also I used a wash made of red wine or red wine vinegar to kill the virus on my cervix at least once a day. I just got my labs back today and it is negative again, I'm not sure which one worked, but I would recommend using all of the above. I hope this helps with the ladies who are suffering with this so called incurable disease.

I was diagnosed with recurring cervical dysplasia & HPV over 10 years ago (in my early 40's). I had 3 cervical conings (where they freeze the surface cells.) After the 4th positive test result, I decided to take different action. I did a lot of on-line research, which led me to try a natural aloe-based product known as "beta mannen". I took the supplement for 4 weeks (along with additional Vit C and consciously getting more rest, more exercise, and exploring way to de-stress). My next pap and exam proved that I was clear -- and I have never had a problem since (over 12 yrs). I recommended this treatment to my sister (she was in her 30's), and 2 neices (early to mid-20s)... they all experienced the same result... future paps and testings were clear. research, educate and pay attention to what treatments you are drawn to. Good luck and good health!!

Ok so you're on here because you have hpv. It's ok you're not the only one. I had anal warts and I've tried so many different treatments and all of them have hurt really bad or did not work. The most painful one is Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and it's not worth the burn. Anyone on here saying it works, don't believe them or find out the hard way.
I recently came across a post about Cold Pressed Castor Oil and I was not sure if it was even worth trying but figured what do I have to lose? I put tons of it all over the area and soaked a paper towel and applied it to the area and added a dry paper towel over it so I wouldn't leak as much. It's been roughly 8 days now and they are gone. Just vanished no pain no turning black no falling off simply gone. I've had these things for a little over 10 years in my anal area not inside just on the outside surrounding my opening. When I look in my hand mirror I'm amazed my skin looks great and all warts are gone!! I'm so happy!!!
I've lost nights of sleep over this and went thru a very deep depression. I went to the DR. years ago and they made me feel like a freak so I decided to do home treatments for several years, in moderation. Nothing worked so I visited a DR again about 2 years ago and asked for Aldara. He checked my anal area out and said I do not have any warts. I knew he was wrong bc I know my body but he assured me it was not warts and gave me the prescription anyways and said if the cream doesnt work its bc they are not warts. Well the cream didnt work. I didnt know what to do so I soaked my anal area with ACV for 3 days in a row and omg the worse pain ever. I let it heal and did spot treatment instead- 4 days later I got rid of 1 large wart and its seed. Ever since that I can not use ACV bc the pain is horrible and it left a little scar.
If you are looking for a way to get rid of your warts pain free get some Cold Pressed Castor Oil ASAP! You will thank me in about 1 week. After day 3 I saw no difference but decided to keep using it and everything is smooth and clear again!! Thank God I have my life back!! Castor Oil really does work take it from me my warts were stubborn and old latching on my body for all these years it feels good to say good bye to my warts!!

Last year October I was diagnosed of HPV. I have warts on my genital area. I tried some alternative treatment like Castor oil before engaging into medical intervention, I applied it on the area like a lotion and amazingly it peeled off the warts 85-90% in just week. But it came back November and I discovered that I am pregnant. Warts recurrence happens when our immune sytem is low and during pregnancy immune system is low. December I undergo cauterization. After a week I feel bumps in my vagina, ( 2 bumps), I applied castor oil again and used Wartrol. I higly recommend it. After 4 days I think the bumps disappeared. Its been 4 months without breakout. Recurrence is possible if your immune system is low but some says 2-3x recurrence happen. Keeping your body fit will decrease the chance of recurrence. Dont smoke! Aside from castor oil and Wartrol, I am taking vitamins like vit c and vit e that is good for our immune system. If you are at younger age your body could fight the virus because younger people have a good immune system. Most men and women do acquire immunity to their acquired HPV type in a year or three. According to some studies HPV will be cleared by our own body 6month-2 years, but of course we have to help our body. Good Luck!

I was diagnosed with high risk HPV in 2006. I had a cone biopsy and a leap surgery that removed a carcinoma from my cervix. My gynecologist indicated that in my case there would be no need to get the vaccine since I was already positive. He clearly indicated there were no remedies or cures. however I found out through the American Board of Gynecologists, that a combination of Folic Acid, Vitamin C and Betacaroten could potentially help (although there are no conclusive/proven results).
My inmediate action plan was becoming vegetarian (only ocasional fish and seafood), I ceased any consumption of dairy (even organic) and started to take daily dosis of Folic Acid (two caplets), Vitamin C (one caplet) and Betacarotene (1 caplet) for the next year.
I have been having frequent Pap tests (every 4 months the 1st year after my surgeries and then every 6 months on the 2nd year) and since then my results have shown no signs of HPV so far.
I continue taking daily doses of vitamin C and folic acid (1 caplet each) and remain a vegetarian with ocasional consumption of non American organic cheese only.

I just found out that I have Hpv after getting my check up but the doc said that I didn't have the strand that causes GW. But I been having a painful bump that comes up inside my vag and once it appeared right by the opening of my vag this was happening before I even got my check up but I was too embarrassed to ask about it. It starts off small but get really big and painful after the first week and it is extremely painful when urinating. It usually takes about 3 weeks to go away but comes back right after my cycle. Does any one on here only have one bump instead of many that comes up. I'm about to go crazy they keep coming back it is possible that the doctor was wrong and I do have Gw what should I do?

Hello ladies, thanks for all your posts. I too was diagnosed with HPV a few months ago and my gyn told me that alot of time it clears up on its own, similar to having a flu virus. She did tell me to make sure I got plenty of rest and ate well and she said smoking makes it worse. Like Janey previously posted folic acid and vitamins are probably also helpful in combating HPV since you're supporting your body in the fight against the virus. As far as BV goes, I've had it off and on for a few years along with yeast infections. I have PCOS, a condition that throws off your insulin and other hormones. This causes your body not to burn sugar easily therefore running throughout the body causing yeast, and other infections such as BV and other symptoms. I'm sure that some of you have probably noticed that the more sugar you eat the more itchy you can get down there. One thing that I'm trying in ACV, it helps with balancing sugar in the body but also it helps keep your body at a balanced ph level, making it difficult for bacteria, fungus or yeast to grow. My gyn also recommended a gel called Rephresh, which is supposed to keep your ph balanced down there too. She said that should work on its own before the BV got out of hand. I've tried it a couple of times if I feel any infection coming or any unusual odor and its worked well for me. You can purchase online from drugstore.com which also has buyer reviews. Good luck to all.

I got BV back in 2006... they told me it was nothing and that some women get it once and it goes away, others live with it the rest of their lives on medication... that person on the medication was me. after every period i got, the BV showed up. i knew it was going to come around so i started taking my medication as soon as my period was almost over. they [prescribed me to 500mg of metronidazole. i was taking this every month . In march of 2008 i had my annual pap done.. all was good and well until i got a letter in the mail stating they found irregular cells on my cervix..this made me very worried. i was told to make an appointment for a colposcopy.. i never did which was very bad. i finally got the courage to get it done (very scared), i had the test done in November. they took 2 biopsy's told me i should boost my immune system with some folic acid and sent me on my way being scheduled for 3 weeks to come back for my results.. i went and got some folic acid and a multi vitamin and have taken them everyday since.. unfortunately something came up and i wasn't going to make my appointment, the next available appointment was yesterday.. January 29th 2009... i went in and it got very serious.... i was diagnosed with HPV.. i am only 19 years old but have been sexually active since i was 14. This information was scarey to me, though i knew very little about it.. with women under the age of 25 my doctor told me it is very likely that when taking a multi vitamin with high dose folic acid or a folic acid tablet that it will clear up on its own.. i felt much better... now that i have read all your feedbacks with BV being in common with HPV and stating that the BV went away when the HPV went away.... i actually did NOT get BV this month which was very very shocking to me since I've had it at age 16...every month... i have been strict to sex with men and men only.. but recently i met this girl who totally blows my mind, nothing has happened but i just cant help but think that all this couldnt have happened at any worse time, i had the guts to tell her before anything happened, which was courageous she said... i feel alot better i'm going in march to have my PAP done again.. hopefully it will be clear.. you guys gave me hope after saying all your thoughts and experiences... good luck to all.. i feel your pain now.
