My husband had warts on the bottom of one foot from before we were married. After about 16 years of marriage I had gone into one of the local grocery stores and spoke with the lady who supplied herbs to the store. She suggested that my husband should try using black walnut (also known as English walnut) suppliments for his warts so I purchased a bottle and he followed the directions on the label. The capsules were 500 miligrams each and the directions said to take two capsules with a meal twice daily (1000mg with breakfast and 1000mg with supper). At the time he had started taking the black walnut he had so many warts on the bottom of that one foot that one half of the bottom was completely covered with them. He took the black walnut for a few weeks and in less than a month all the warts were gone. He has not had a single wart since and it has been over 8 years now. We have had 4 other family members who have taken black walnut for their warts and all four of them have had the same success, all of them dissappeared and none have returned. There was no need to remove anything, the warts shrunk, leaving no trace that they were ever there. I was hesitant at first to give black walnut to my six-year-old because I didn't know much about it. I did a little research and found nothing that indicated that it would be bad for him. I looked in an herb book written by an ND (naturpathic doctor) to figure out how much to give him. In the book the ND gave a general guideline for herb dosages as follows: Preschool children take 1/4 of an adult dose, children ages 5 through 10 take 1/2 of an adult dose, early teens take 3/4 of an adult dose, and then when they reach the size of an adult (usually between ages 16 to 21) then they take the full adult dose. I decided to go with the 1/4 dose for my 6-year-old though because he was small for his age. He had 3 or 4 warts on his one hand, with the largest being in the center of the palm. I was amased that in 2 to 3 days his warts shrunk significantly and were completely gone within 1 or 2 weeks. It has been 5 years and like the other family members, he has not had another wart.
