Warts are marks on the skin which the human papillomavirus (HPV) causes. They come in many types, can be smooth or rough, and may be difficult to distinguish from moles and skin tags. While warts are generally harmless, certain forms—like genital warts—can cause cancer, particularly in women.
Some factors responsible for the spread of warts include contact with an infected person or contaminated surfaces. Thankfully, you can manage those lumps through non-invasive homeopathic wart treatments at home.
7 Homeopathic Treatments for Warts
Here are your options if you are looking for a natural and non-invasive solution to wart problems.
1. Thuja occidentalis Common name: Northern white cedar
Specific concentrations of northern white cedar leaf oil can remove certain wart types. A study about this oil showed it successfully cured a case of warts resistant to more conventional treatments.
Thuja occidentalis also has expectorant, immunostimulant, and diuretic properties for treating other body ailments, ensuring holistic healing.
2. Phytolacca americana Common name: American pokeweed
Pokeweed is a common plant with extracts containing various compounds with potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Many cultures, particularly Native Americans, used pokeweed in folk medicine. Its antiviral properties help fight HPV, which is responsible for wart manifestations. It also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects to help ease the discomfort of getting warts.
3. Calendula officinalis Common name: Marigold
In homeopathy, marigold flower extracts have antiviral and anti-inflammatory effects. These properties can target warts’ root causes and symptoms, promoting a speedy recovery.
4. Melaleuca alternifolia Common name: Tea tree
Tea tree leaves contain terpinen-4-ol, which has broad antimicrobial effects. For centuries, the Aboriginal peoples of Australia used tea tree oil for healing skin conditions. Its effectiveness as a microbe killer can treat warts and prevent infections from transmitting in the first place.
5. Citrus limonum Common name: Lemon
Oil from lemon peels also has many applications for skin treatments. For example, lemon oil can reduce acne inflammation and lighten scar tissue. Lemon oil can also prevent warts from spreading and clean affected areas to reduce the likelihood of reinfection.
6. Thymus vulgaris Common name: Thyme
Besides its use in cooking, thyme possesses medicinal properties. Its leaves contain thymol, which has analgesic, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Homeopathic remedies use thyme for specific skin conditions, particularly those that cause skin growth and flaking.
7. Eugenia caryophyllatta Common name: Clove
Clove is another spice with healing powers. Clove oil is made from dried clove flowers and leaves and is helpful for pain relief and disinfection. Eugenol is the active ingredient in cloves and is effective against certain microbe types. The properties of eugenol can help reduce the likelihood of wart infection from other sources and hasten the recovery process.
How to Use Homeopathic Remedies for Warts
If you decide to use a homeopathic remedy for warts, keep a few general things in mind. Remember to consult a homeopathic doctor or medicine provider and follow their instructions, too.
Shake well before use
This step allows the ingredients to stabilize and dilute properly, ensuring strength and effectiveness.
Clean the affected area and dry thoroughly
Foreign substances may mix with your chosen medicine and compromise its efficacy. As such, you must thoroughly clean the affected area with warm water and soap before applying treatment. However, since water can affect the concentration of the remedy, thoroughly drying your skin and the applicator tools is a must.
Roll the product directly over the wart following the daily recommended number of applications
Wart Remover Extra Strength by Forces of Nature has a rolling ball for easy application. Follow your homeopathy doctor’s recommended dosage to get the best results.
Treat until recovered
Warts slowly fade or flake off with a regular application of homeopathy products. However, it’s best to talk to a homeopathic doctor if symptoms persist.
Certain medications may be sensitive to heat, UV rays, or oxidation, which can reduce their potency. Tightly close the medicine and store it upright in a cool, dark environment to prevent these unwanted reactions.
The Gentle Cure: Homeopathy for Warts
Warts can be an inconvenience, but you don’t have to put up with them. Home remedies are more than enough to handle even the most stubborn cases. To ensure a speedy recovery and prevent reinfections, consider using homeopathic solutions to wipe out warts.
