The Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is more common than you may think. In fact, some experts estimate that up to 80% of sexually active adults have been exposed to the virus at some point, making it the most sexually transmitted disease in the U.S. Despite this large number, most who become infected develop no symptoms or health issues and may never know they ever have the disease.
What is HPV?
HPV is a group of more than 150 related viruses. Each HPV virus in this large group is given a number which is called its HPV type. In 90% of cases, HPV goes away on its own and does not cause any health problems. However, in some cases it can cause genital warts and cancer.
Some HPV types can lead to mouth, throat, anus, penile, vaginal or cervical cancer.
How Does HPV Spread?
HPV is transmitted through intimate skin-to-skin contact. You can get HPV by having vaginal, anal or oral sex with someone who has the virus. HPV is so common, that nearly all men and women get it at some point in their lives and can be passed even when an infected person has no signs or symptoms.
Natural Treatment Options for HPV
While HPV may sound scary, the severe cases are extremely rare. Some studies estimate that 50% of those infected will clear the virus within eight months without treatment or even knowing they had it. Over 90% will be cleared in two years. A healthy immune system can easily fight off most strains of HPV.
If someone with a HPV infection wanted to speed up their recovery, there are many supplements that can make a difference. Vitamin B12, folic acid, curcumin, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E are proven to naturally treat HPV overtime. Anti-viral nutrients like oregano, garlic, tea tree oil, thuja oil, and goldenseal may also help treat HPV.
For maximum results, in-office treatments like intravenous infusions (IV) can deliver high levels of nutrients. IV therapies are one of the most aggressive yet natural HPV treatment options.
Since HPV is a virus, intravenous anti-viral substances like Ozone can target and kill it by oxygenating the blood. This creates an alkaline environment, which also helps support the immune system. This helps fight off viruses because diseases prefer acidic environments.
For the few who develop a more aggressive form of HPV that causes cancer, a natural cancer treatment may lead to the best recovery. A naturopathic physician can come up with an individualized treatment plan for you and your symptoms.
