I've had this wart on the 4th finger of my right hand for years but since I didn't have health insurance, couldn't afford a doctor and it wasn't really bothering me I never did much about it. A few weeks ago I started taking turmeric 2-3 times a day. Not much, just the tip of a teaspoon in certain food or drink. It's the only change I've really made. Last week I noticed the cauliflower getting smaller and it starting to develop dead skin over it. The cauliflower is tiny now, about 1/8th-1/10th the size. I've just started a few days ago using a nail file on it to remove the dead skin. It's looking like by next week it will be gone completely. I haven't had to rub any nasty stuff on it and cover with bandages or tape. There's been absolutely no pain or discomfort of any type. What a pleasant surprise to have such results from something I was going to do with or without the wart.. And with all the health benefits of Turmeric, we should all be adding it to our diets anyway. Depending on what you put it on or in, there isn't much difference in the taste. It actually tastes pretty good in warm milk with a bit of raw honey or agave nectar and sometimes some cinnamon too. It's a great drink for cold days or just before bed. The mom down the street has started giving it to her husband and kids instead of hot chocolate and they like it. This is the first year none of them have had any colds yet too. It's also not too bad in my morning coffee. You just have to keep stirring the drink because it doesn't dissolve and settles to the bottom.
The one drawback to turmeric is take too much and it will dehydrate you. If you need to take more of it, drink more fluids.
Please add Tumeric to your list of remedies for warts. For about year, I was troubled with a wart on the on my right palm. Resonable--though not excellent nutrition-would shrink the wart and cause it to blacken slightly. But it was still there. Due to other health concerns, about 6 weeks ago, I began taking moderately high dosages of tumeric/curcumin (4 capsules, 3 times per day) My wart is now absolutely GONE without a trace--not smaller--GONE!!!!!!
I do offer the following cautions: NEVER take curcumin on an empty stomach. It is best taken with plenty of healthy fats, and BE CAREFUL TAKING CURCUMIN IF YOU TAKE PRESCRIPTION BLOOD THINNERS... But this works!!!
This is my story about warts. I promised myself I would post this once I figured out a cure! I am so happy I intuitively found Fresh Turmeric Root and it has healed a wart problem I've been trying to treat for 2 years.
With the previous methods I tried, the wart would only get very small but not go away!
I think I first got this plantar wart on my foot during my travels in India. I never knew what it was because it was totally flat, less than 2 mm across and looked more like a divot or a flake of dry skin than what I usually think of as a wart.
It wasn't until my boyfriend asked me about it that I went and purchased an over the counter remedy. I bought a "wart stick" which is basically like a chapstick with salicylic acid in it. The wart came out from hiding and then I knew what it was! It got bigger and I felt it was no where near strong enough to remove a wart which had potentially been there 8 years without my knowing it.
Thats is when I found this website and tried several of the natural remedies. I didn't want to go to a doctor or have it freezed or cut off. I had read that sometimes these methods only cause more warts to come out!
I tried Banana Peel, and my foot really hurt! And it didn't seem to be getting any better. (Now I think it had similar effect as turmeric - but it was tough for me to keep fresh peel around). I tried ACV but it was too stinky and my boyfriend hated it). I also tried a few others but no luck. I tried to go to a clinic but they only recommended drugstore remedies.
Thats when I thought I would give the stronger over the counter medicine a try. I bought several brands of salicylic acid in a brush on jar, a bandaid with medication, the little stickers and the at home freezing kits! I used these for a year and a half! Always thinking somehow I was getting close. With extreme diligence its size would go down but the qualities of it would not change. It was always white. It would never scab or come to the surface.
I must have spent way over $200 on these meds, but they only prolonged my battle. In the mean time I couldn't get mani-pedis or feel great with my shoes off! I tried using exfoliating pumice stones and beach sand, toothpicks and razor blades to get the wart out! DO NOT DO THIS! It will spread little bits of the virus all over the shower or bathroom or whatever place you are working in!
All of my fussing with the wart on my foot ended up cause a new wart on my hand this time! I immediately tried the over the counter salicylic glue bottle but it got bigger and bigger - until I had it on my hand for one month! I was starting to feel very desperate and sought out a podiatrist. I got a price quote for a deep cryogenic treatment started saving the $150, but I felt conflicted because of the one on my hand!
I do NOT recommend any of the traditional western medical treatments! Plantar warts are deep and you cant go in to get the wart (it seems)! You have to make the wart come out and kill it from the root or internally. It will naturally die and be expelled by new layers of skin if you use what I eventually used!
FRESH TURMERIC ROOT was my savior! I found it at a local Asian Grocery. It looks exactly like a ginger root only a little smaller and very yellow/orange.
I sliced the root and used a bandaid to stick it to my foot and hand. I would push on the area to make the juices come out and to stimulate the area into sending my natural immune defences out.
I also made a daily tea drink of Grated Turmeric Root, Ginger, and Dried Hibiscus Flowers. These are all great for the immune system and the Hibiscus has a ton of Vitamin C!
I really think the tropical nature of these plants helped out with the tropical nature of my wart!
I think that Banana Peel might work the same way, but I felt like all the bananas with black chunks of peel missing were messy. Also Salicylic Acid may work somehow, but the over the counter dosages are very small. I consider Salicylic Acid to be a natural remedy because it comes from willow bark. Maybe if you went to a live willow tree and stripped a piece of bark it would be more potent.
I love the fresh Turmeric Root because it is a lot less messy then the powder and probably 20X more potent because you can keep it alive unwrapped in the refrigerator!
At first my warts got big and like little mushroom clouds at their maximum diameter about 5 or 6 mm. But NOW they were really at the surface and their size diminished as I gently scraped the dead skin off with a toothpick. Within the first week they were down to about 2 mm in size with the area around all being replaced by new pink skin!
They hurt for that first week, but now I am at the end of my second week and they look great. The skin is completely flat, the warts have scabbed up (red color- not white! ) and the scabs have fallen off. I see new skin underneath and it just seems a little dry and yellow - because of the root.
I feel extremely confident that this is my final cure! I am going to continue to treat for one more week just to be sure. But a 3 week treatment surely beats 2 years of constant applications and worry with the over the counter medications!
I am so RELIEVED! I hope you try this method. Fresh turmeric root is easy to find in Asian or Indian Groceries. Dry root can also be found - I would rehydrate it before using so that the turmeric can really seep into the skin. The power must be of some use as well and I have heard of making a paste. I'm sure it can be used if that is your last resort, but the whole root makes a nice little slice that will easily stay under a bandage!
GOOD LUCK! I hope to hear more success stories using FRESH TURMERIC ROOT! Whatever you do don't give up! Find a natural remedy that works or keep trying new ones till you find one that works for you! Cheers!

I love EC, since then I been using it on my ailments and giving all remedies a tried. I have to share that I had great success with URINE. I had for several years tiny warts on all my neck, the warts are not plantar so there is no way I can cover them with makeup. I tried vitamin C and ACV but the warts were still there! So anyways I kept on doing them. I saw the URINE THERAPY on this page and wanted to try for my candida and give it a shot to see what happen to my body but I failed.. I just could not drink it! But I used it and apply it all over my face and neck-thinking what wrong could that do... in the morning when I woke up I saw my face clearer and checked my neck, WOW I WAS SO HAPPY I COULD Barley see any WARTS!! I'am super happy know I can wear my V tops with confidence!! I will keep on trying it!

Urine therapy cured my warts. All 3 times that I have gotton pregnant I get warts. The past 2 times I have had them frozen off in my ob/gyn office. This past time I got a lot of them and they spread into my nailbeds were they were no longer able to be frozen. My gyno sent me to a dermatologist and they attempted to remove them with chemo injections. I got about 10 shots in my nail beds with hurt like crazy yet nothing happened to the warts. I went back a month later to the dr. as advised and he decided that they were stubborn enough to not continue with the shots but to rather try a topical treatment called DNCB. Some sort of chemical that is suppose to induce an allergic reaction and have my immune system fight off the warts. Well, it back-fired. I applied the treatment as prescribed and I ended up with huge puss blisters which they said were normal but it developed into a bad strep infection. I got really sick: fever, chills, achy, and fingers that were disabled (which was really difficult with a newborn baby). I was put on an antibiotic for the strep infection and started feeling better slowly. About a month last I developed some bowel problems and started to feel sick with bloody stools for about a week. I went to the dr. again and it was decided after a ton of testing that I had "Antibiotic enduced Colitis". I couldn't believe it. All this just in hopes of taking away a few warts. I of course was fed up so I got online. This is when I found urine therapy. It sounded easy enough, cheap enough, and it couldn't seem to hurt. I wasn't brave enough to actually drink it but I read that by just putting the urine on the warts would do the trick. I figured I could handle that so I did it and IT WORKED!! I can't believe it. What a miracle. After all that trouble, money, pain, and all I had to do was pee on my hands. The warts that were once "stubborn" and huge, cracked, bleeding are now a problem of the past. I don't know why or how it works but I am glad I know this cheap and painless cure.
Last week I had a cold and so I tried putting Vicks Vapor Rub on soles of my feet and between my toes to give me relief from coughing at night. I put socks on and went to bed. After 3 night of this (It did help with the cough) I noticed that a wart on my toe was nearly gone. A quick search on the web showed up incidents of it working for others. Hope this is helpful to others. Take care
Hi, I had plantar warts for 6 years and tried everything to get rid of them (bazooka, azote, creams, natural treatments...) but nothing worked. I did last October a fruit and veggies detox for two weeks and to my big surprise my warts disappeared. I read them some articles saying that detox boots the immune system and helps get rid of them. For me this is probably the best treatment as not only you get rid of warts but also of the virus from your body so they are much less likely to disappear for longer. My warts were huge and really growing despite daily treatments so if it worked for meit is really worth trying (Vegetables, fruits, water, cereals for two weeks and you will see amazing benefits) :)
I am trying Vit A at the time and it seems to be successful. Here is a link to the info:
Hi it's been years since I have successfully gotten rid of my warts and here is my solution. I have passed this along to many people now and it has worked for them.
So, usually warts that you get are simply the case of a small cut in a finger for example that gets infected with some virus that you picked up from touching something contaminated. Then your body sends defenders to attack that virus, so they form a wart. Which then stays there for a while. My doctor then tried to freeze it off. Which didn't really work. So after lots of research I decided, what if I gave my body the boost it needed to vanquish that virus once and for all.
I took Vitamin C twice a day for about a month. I also drank a lot of orange juice, apple juice, vitamin waters, essentially super charged my body with Vitamin C for those thirty days. Without pain the wart started to shrink in size. Reduce in pain, and after about a month disappeared completely. I believe if you took as much vitamin C as you could (without giving yourself diarrhea) you would also get rid of warts.
Be careful, always take these vitamins with food since they can be strong. Don't go crazy but a potent multivitamin, two vitamin C tablets a day and maybe a Vitamin E or Vitamin A one will do the trick for you too. Good luck. Stay positive and try it. It is painless and can get rid of your warts once and for all.
I have had a couple tiny warts on the inside of my nose for several years. I have used either castor oil and coconut oil regularly. (It seems to keep them small and without pain.) However, recently, I had a blood test that revealed my Vitamin C level was virtually non-existent, so I began taking 1000 mg morning and night of ascorbic acid Over the past few weeks, I have felt the warts diminishing. I'll be keeping up this regimen!
i read alot of remedies to remove embarrassing warts and after alot of reading i tried several things like acv 2 a day on warts i tried this every day for a week and some warts did disappeared but others did not i had some that were colored that were difficult to remove and were very itchy at times so i decided to try something different i crushed about 3-4 vitamin c tablets and added about 1 1/2 tsp of natural lemon juice mixed these two ingredients and made a paste i got a few cotton balls and soak the mixture on it then applied this to the colored warts that were more hard to remove i left this on the warts for a while about 30 min while i laid down i got to admit this stings or burns more than the acv but it is well worth it when i got up to remove the cotton ball they had stains i was a little scared but when i checked myself the warts were gone it was unbelievable! this web site is a real blessing !! i hope this info is helpfull and hope everyone stays healthy and gets better.
Vitamin E worked wonderfully for my son, then in grade shool. He had a huge wart at the top of right palm.One evening he was really sick of it so before bedtime I just squeezed content of one vit E 400 capsule. He put sock on his hand not to stain bed sheets. In the morning there was no trace of it.

Vitamin E works inside and out of the body at the same time. It makes the warts just shrink down and go away. no discoloration or any thing. I also put Noxzema on them it works with the E and cuts the time to a couple of weeks.
To all those with warts: I haven't had a wart in years so haven't checked out information given me about 28 years ago. One young woman had a bunch of warts, many on finger tips and some of them even growing up into area where distal nail connects to skin. She later came in and showed me her wartless hands and gladly shared with me when I asked her how she got rid of them. Her method was piercing a vitamin E soft-cap or pearl and applying vitamin E to her warts about times a day. You wouldn't have thought she had ever had a wart at all.
My son had terrible warts on the bottoms of his feet and also his fingers. We bought a bottle of NATURAL vitamin E 400IU. He took one in the morning and one at night. At night before going to bed,we poked a pin in a vitamin E pill and rubbed the oil on the warts. In three days the warts turned black and started falling out. In two weeks they were completely gone. Three of my friends who have had warts tried this with the same results. My sons warts have never come back. Hope this helps someone!
