Usually harmless, but very unsightly, warts can be clustered or single in appearance. They are found on the feet, hands, face, and arms and can range in size from a speck to a kidney bean. Because they are caused by human papilloma viruses, they can be contagious and will spread if picked at, bitten, or cut. Most common warts disappear within a year or two without any treatment. However, the following are recommendations to help prevent their occurrence or shorten the duration.

A wart is defined as any small growth on the skin associated with a viral infection.

Symptoms are raised or flat growths on the skin surface.

Dietary considerations
Eat as close to the “original garden” as possible. That means eating immune-boosting foods: fresh vegetables and fruits, including citrus fruits and broccoli. Add sulphur foods such as garlic, onions, and eggs to your diet. Avoid sugary foods, pies, cakes, candy, soft drinks, and processed and refined foods.

Supplement support for warts
• Vitamin B complex, for normal cell multiplication
• Vitamin C: 5,000 mg daily, for antiviral effect
• Vitamin A (emulsion form): 100,000 IU daily for one month;in the second month use 50,000 IU daily; in the third month graduate down to 25,000 IU until wart is gone
• Vitamin E: apply topically
• N-acetyl-cysteine: 2,000 mg daily, for immune response
• A daily green drink

Lifestyle choices
• Do not squeeze, cut, pick, or bite a wart. If you do, it can spread or become infected.
• Apply Lysine topical cream.
• Apply lemon juice/sea salt or the inside of papaya skins to wart areas.
• Try the banana cure. Rub the inside section of a banana peel over the wart. Then cut a piece of the inside peel into a square and place it over the wart. Secure it with a bandage. Repeat daily until the wart is gone.
