Over the past year, I've been eating poorly and gaining weight rapidly. Along with the uncomfortableness of excess weight, I noticed three warts on my feet: two on my left and one on my right foot. Thankfully they aren't painful. However, I've noticed that they are getting bigger and bigger. Not waiting until they got painful to do something about them, I started researching.

I had bought some OTC products which didn't really work. At the same time, I started changing my diet to include a ton of mixed greens and salads. A read a book about adding mixed greens to the diet. The author had some warts on her body and after she started drinking green smoothies daily, they fell right off.

Well, I can happily say that two of my three warts have fallen off! The third one is in an area on my foot where I can feel it, but can't bend properly to see it. It's flatter than it was and may fall off on it's own soon, too!

For the past two weeks, I've been eating a big salad for lunch every day with mixed greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, pecans or almonds, peppers, and beans of some type - with fat free dressing. I haven't lost weight because I'm still eating junkfood at night and heavy meals for dinner. But I will change that soon.

Another popular author I was reading talked about the importance of nutrition and health. He has similar diet recommendations - eating at least one pound of raw vegetables and one pound of raw fruits (who cooks fruits.. Maybe applesauce?). As I continue eating 1lb of veggies (i.e. my salad) and 1lb of fruit daily (for breakfast), I will comment about other ailments that should hopefully go away. I have really bad skin - sometimes called chicken skin - on my arms. I'm hoping diet will help that, too.

Maybe it would be helpful if you told us which books you have been reading?

I do eat a lot of salad with all kinds of vegetables in them but my warts have never fallen off. As far as green smoothies go unfortunately I don't like them but I have been drinking quite a bit of vegetable juice mixed with fruit as well for the past 8 months. Don't forget that your body needs fat so eating the salads with no dressing might not be a good idea. Healthy fats are good for you and I can tell you that since my naturopath told me that my skin was too dry because I wasn't eating enough fat at least the skin on my face is a lot smoother (my legs are still too dry but maybe that will change soon)!

My son had a large wart on the ball of his foot (about 2" round) and he had it burned out by a dermatologist and it returned, he tried all the alternative remedies but nothing worked. Finally, a podiatrist suggested the supplement - DIM. After 3 weeks of faithfully taking the pills according to the bottles instructions, the wart started to get smaller and smaller. After 3 months on the DIM, the wart was gone and has not returned. DIM eliminated any excess estrogen and balanced the hormones. Don't know why it works rid warts, but it works. Praise God.

I put 1 drop of DMSO on a wart I'd just noticed had developed at my hairline, over my forehead. The next day, when I thought about it, I touched the wart & tried moving it around to see if it would crumble, but it fell off in its entirety instead ... leaving healthy new pink skin behind. That was several years ago, but it has never grown back.... I can't say for sure that I didn't first dilute a tad of DMSO with water or Coconut oil, but whatever strength it was, it WORKED!

My 5 yr. old son had 2 warts on his finger, we tried to freeze the off a doctors twice.I also tried ductape for a day or two but started applying dmso on a band aid at night ant within a week it went away. His mother had one on her finger before she was pregnant so I guess she must have passed to him. She also put dmso on a band aid and the wart left as well. I got the dmso at a health food store.

Someone said they had a stubborn wart...use DMSO..put it on every day and it WILL leave you! It might take a couple of weeks...also good for herpes cold sores and the best anti-inflammatory available today.

Warning

Do NOT use Gorilla tape for Warts

I read about using duct tape to get rid of warts by covering them with it. I didn't have any duct tape, but I had Gorilla tape, which is stronger, so I figured it should work just the same if not better. I put a piece over one wart overnight and when I woke up, the skin around it was painful and discolored. The skin has remained discolored for 4-5 months so far. And it was painful for weeks afterwards.

Do NOT try this!!! Big regrets. The wart is still there, btw.

I had a big wart on my left leg. I had it removed at the doctors office. But couple of years later it came back. So I read an article in a magazine about using duck tape to remove warts. So I tried it!

Cut a small piece of Duct tape and taped it on my warts, I even took showers with it on my wart. I had the duck tape on day & night. And only replaced the tape when it starts to get loose. After couple of days the wart softened and eventually disappeared after a week. And its been a few years and it hasn't come back.

When my daughter was very little, she had a big wart on her thumb. So I wrapped it with tape & couple of days later, it was gone! And it hasn't been back & she's 16 yrs. old now.

A not-so-new published study indicates that duct tape is more effective in wart removal than having your doctor freeze them. http://archpedi.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleid=203979

We at earth clinic have known that for years! Imagine what the score would be had they tried ACV!

I think the reason it doesn't work for some is that not all duct tape is alike. Some duct tape "breathes", allowing air to get to the wart. If it doesn't work you might try some of the cheaper plastic-looking duct tape.

I had a wart on my finger which I had tried to remove by using vinegar, but this just burned my skin. Then I tried wrapping duct tape around my finger (over the wart) which I changed every few days. After about 3 weeks it was gone and has still not come back in a year!

My five year old son had a nasty wart on the knuckle of his right thumb. Duct tape, recommended to us by our doctor, got rid of it completely in about a week. Hasn't worked for me yet though!

My doctor froze the four I showed him, now I have around a dozen! Commercial solvents don't work either.

I'm off to try Apple Cider Vinegar (I have lots, I make it from my own apples), banana skin and voodoo potato treatment (which my family used, decades ago - it can also be done with a slug, if I remember correctly!). Maybe tea-tree oil and vitamin E if I can find them.

I had lots of warts, for years, in my teens but they just went away eventually, so maybe it is about an immune response.

I have tried Thuja quite a few times for longer periods of time and it has never helped me at all. Glad it helps other people..... A long time ago me and a friend tried some tea and a cream. He had a lot more than I had, really awful, his disappeared completely, mine didn't change at all!

My 12 year old son had a huge planters wart on the sole of his foot. His Dr. recommended duct tape. Every night I put new tape on. Just on the wart. Every night when I took off the tape he would dig out the dead skin. one week later the huge wart was gone. He had a big hole which healed up nicely. ONE WEEK! PRETTY COOL! I guess the tape cuts off the air supply to the wart and it dies.

my gp doctor told me of this -- IT WORKS!! -- plantar warts (the warts most common on the bottom of the feet) cover them with duct tape and keep them covered with the tape for several days (mine took about three weeks) there is no pain or discomfort. i think the tape keeps the wart from getting air and thus it dies. at any rate, this works every time.

Duct tape on wart to suffocate it for a week and it will be gone. William Beacon was on David Letterman Christmas Day Eve telling people different uses for duck or duct tape. He told David Letterman if you put Duct Tape on a wart it will be gone in a week.

Vaseline and duct tape cured a wart on my daughter's finger. I smothered the wart in vaseline and wrapped her finger in duct tape and left it on for a week.
