Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)

0-869846876-hpv1

The human papillomavirus is a virus that infects keratinocytes (cells on the outer skin) or mucous membranes of humans. There are over a hundred and twenty different varieties that have been identified.

It is estimated that HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States. Although most of the most common varieties of HPV cause no symptoms in humans, some can create warts (including but not limited to genital warts) while others (in a small number of cases) may lead to cancers of the vulva, vagina, cervix, penis, oropharynx, and anus. Recent studies suggest that HPV may be associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, while HPV 16 and 18 infections are associated with increased risk of developing oropharyngeal (throat) cancer.


Causes and Risks

There are three ways that HPV can be transmitted.

First, genital HPV types can be transmitted from mother to child during birth. However, the occurrence of such transmissions is relatively rare, with about two cases per 100,000 children occurring in the United States.

Second, it is also theoretically possible to become infected by sharing contaminated objects. For instance, finger-genital contact would have the capacity to transmit the virus, although such transmission is also very rare.

The most common means of transmission is via sexual intercourse. There are at least forty HPV varieties that infect the genital tract. As Doctor Laura Egendorf shows in the book Sexually Transmitted Diseases, if a woman in college has at least one different partner per year for four years, the likelihood that she will leave college with an HPV infection is greater than 85%.

Symptoms

Not everyone suffering from HPV will experience the same symptoms. There are those who have HPV but experience no symptoms at all. The explanation below offers information on the most commonly reported symptoms experienced.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the body’s immune system will naturally clear away HPV within two years for 90% of the cases. The most common physical symptoms are skin and genital warts.

Skin Warts

The skin warts have different names depending on their location and impact on the human body. They include:

  • Common warts: occur on areas such as the hands, feet, elbows, and knees. In general they have a cauliflower-like surface and are raised from the skin.
  • Plantar warts: found on the soles of the feet. These warts are difficult because they grow inward and create pain upon walking.
  • Subungal/periungal warts: form under the fingernail (subungal) or around the finger and cuticle area (periungal). Because of their location, they can be more difficult to treat.
  • Flat warts: most commonly found on the arms, face, and forehead. They frequently occur in children and teenagers.

Unlike genital warts, skin warts are not likely to spread from person to person.

Genital Warts

Many different varieties of HPV can lead to genital warts. However, types 6 and 11 account for about 90% of all genital warts cases. It is important to remember that even if you or your partner is not displaying genital warts, the infection can still be transmitted.

Treatment

Doctors believe there is no medical cure for HPV. DHerbs believes the body can heal itself, given the opportunity.

There are ways to protect your self from HPV, although they range in the degree of effectiveness. There are measures that can be taken to help prevent the transmission of the virus, but the only way to guarantee no exposure, and therefore no way to contract the virus, is through abstinence.

The male condom may also reduce the risk of HPV infections. It provides a lesser degree of protection when compared to other STDs because it can also be transmitted by exposure to infected skin and mucosal areas that are not protected by the condom. Female condoms are slightly more effective because they protect more of the skin. Some studies suggest that regular condom use limits the spread of HPV to other body parts on already-infected individuals.

In conclusion, be smart about sex. Get regular health exams, and make sure that your partner does too.

    Q: I am a Policeman in Ireland and I have genital warts, when I was treated for warts the doctor told me it would not go away forever. I just met a new girlfriend and we had sex and oral sex as well. Some days I have four-five pimples at the end of my penis. I returned to my doctor he said there is nothing but I knew there is something when he sent me to another professional but they said they can’t know what happen until the comes up again.

    I COULD NEVER GUARANTEE YOUR HEALING BECAUSE HEALING IS NOT UP TO ME BUT YOURSELF. HOWEVER, ALL THAT THE MEDICAL WORLD COULD OFFER YOU WILL NOT WORK. I SUGGEST YOU GIVE THE HERBS A TRY.

YOU CAN HEAL, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU KNOW THAT HEALING IS A WHOLISTIC PROCESS.

    Q: I'm a male who has HPV. Now when I was around the age of 17 to 18 I notice the warts. My "Doctor" told me it "could" be from heat, or sweating in that area. Well almost a year ago my son was born. But during the pregnancy my girlfriend had the warts. The physician had told her that she in fact had HPV. So what I thought were just warts from heat and sweat are HPV. So with that being said how can I get rid of the warts.

    Q: I have been diagnosed with genital warts. I haven't received my results for HPV yet. I've already done the FULL BODY DETOX. While doing the detox I felt great, but since I've finished I feel the same way I did before I started it. What else is recommended? I am so depressed, I feel like my life is over.

    A:

    YOU SHOULD READ MY "GENITAL HERPES" ARTICLES BECAUSE THE SAME PRINCIPLES APPLY TO YOUR CASE OF WARTS. YOUR LIFE IS NOT OVER WITH. ITS JUST BEGINNING. YOUR FOCUS AND PERCEPTION IS ALL WRONG.

HANG OUT ON DHERBS.COM AND READ OUR POWERFUL ARTICLES AND WATCH YOUR DEPRESSION BECOME IMPRESSION. YOU WILL ALWAYS FEEL GOOD WHILE DETOXING, BUT THE GOAL IS TO FEEL GOOD AFTER DETOXING, BELOVED, AND YOU CAN DO THIS BY CHANGING YOUR DIET, LIFESTYLE, THOUGHTS, AND ATTITUDE. ONLY YOU CAN DO THIS. YOU HAVE A CHOICE. YOU CAN BE WELL OR YOU CAN BE SICK. IT'S YOUR CHOICE! CHOOSE WHAT YOU DESIRE, BELOVED. DON'T GIVE UP! WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE! BELIEVE AND YOU SHALL ACHIEVE! GUARANTEED!

    Q: I just completed the 20-day ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN to eliminate HPV and wanted to know if I am still supposed to feel the symptoms of the virus (i.e. warts) because they have not completely gone away. Will they go away on their own, or what should I expect? Please tell me what my next steps should be...

    A:

    No product can heal a disease. Only the person can by change of thinking, attitude, diet, lifestyle, etc. Natural healing takes time so patience is necessary.

    Q: I'm interested in some of your products too for cleansing and giving my body a kick start to my lifestyle changes. Here's what I'm dealing with. 1. PCOS: the insulin resitance and hormonal imbalance is causing lots of issues i.e. acne, hair growth, and irregular cycles maybe infertility and possibly the small cyst on my ovary. (I've come off of the "Medical Pimps" prescribed birth control and metformine and I'm going to weekly acupuncture sessions and drinking a potent Chinese herbal tea daily.) 2. HPV: I just found out I have genital warts and severe abnormal cells on my cervix. I had the cells removed but never went back to check up...the whole thing has turned me off to doctors and how they deal with disease and healing, I felt like I knew more than they did, and mostly becasued I was in tune with my body and they were just prescribing, not willing to really deal with the issue at hand. I'm interested in the following products but would love your advice on which order to take them(to be most effective) or whether I should at all... 1. 10-DAY SUPREME COLON CLEANSE 2. FULL BODY DETOX 3. ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN 4. TOTAL WOMAN CLEANSE They all seem like they'd work well together and in that order. How soon after one another can they be done? Also...This pancreas kit, I dont wanna 'overdo it' but what about that..too much? I should probably schedule a tele-conference, but you're reply would be appreciated for now.

    A:

    Thank you for your interest in Dherbs.Com! Here's what we would recommend for you (in the proper order):

    1. FULL BODY CLEANSE 2. FEMALE CLEANSE 3. 10-DAY COLON CLEANSE 4. ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN

    Wait about 3,5, or 7 days before you begin your next kit!

    Make sure you drink DETOX TEA and FEMALE HEALTH TEA during all of your cleanses (all 4 of them)!

    Q: Hi I'm wondering if the anti viral cleanse would be helpful for warts. If you could get back to me that would be appreciated. Thank you. Lisa

    A: Yes, the Anti-Viral Cleanse would be the best thing to do to help with warts. We always recommend doing the Full Body Cleanse first. The body is always more receptive to healing when your overall health is in a better state and your body is cleaned out.
