HPV Treatment With Homeopathy
For over 200 years individuals have sought homeopathic treatment of genital warts or human papilloma virus (HPV). In recent times, effects of HPV in women, such as cervical dysplasia or precancerous lesions, are monitored by pap test screening, offering early intervention and preventing more serious illness in women. Surgical treatments can save women from more serious cancerous conditions of the cervix.
The HPV vaccine in its early years has been shown to be a potentially dangerous vaccine, causing autoimmune, paralytic and neurological disorders, even death. Its effectiveness has not been proven to outweigh the risks of complications from the vaccine or to be more effective than the current system of regular pap smears.
In homeopathy we focus on reducing the individual’s susceptibility to illness, be it influenza, depression or HPV. Over 90% of HPV infections resolve on their own, meaning that the immune system takes care of it, or the individual overcomes their susceptibility to the virus. Therefore, regardless of exposure, which, if sexually active, is as inevitable as exposure to any other virus, one does not succumb to it.
In my homeopathic practice I have seen many women successfully overcome cervical dysplasia, even in its most severe stage. The following strategies have been effective, as proven to the women and their doctors by subsequent tests:
Homeoprophylaxis may be used for HPV as a preventative or therapeutic measure, for which one should see a homeopath.
Alkalinizing the body through greens supplementation, juicing or pH tablets is important, as the body repairs itself more efficiently in a more alkaline environment. pH urine test strips are readily available to test levels to determine if this is necessary.
Probiotics in high potency taken over a period of several months are also useful, as they promote immune function and reduce growth of unwanted yeast and other pathogens.
Vitamins A, D and C support healthy mucous membranes and may be supplemented in either a good multi-vitamin mineral or singly.
Most importantly, we have used constitutional homeopathic treatment for women with cervical dysplasia. This involves selecting a remedy based on the Totality of Symptoms for the individual, and is the most important strategy in reducing the individual’s susceptibility to a chronic condition. This take into account uniquely experienced details of their condition and must be done by a qualified homeopath.
We have also seen success from use of a homeopathic combination of low potency remedies to treat this condition. It can be used as a douche or be simply applied diluted to the outside of the vagina to affect the cervical area.
It includes the following remedies:
Medorrhinum: a nosode that directly treats any type of genital wart.
Sepia: a remedy from the cuttlefish for erosion of the cervix, vaginitis, and hormonal disturbances.
Caulophyllum: for erosion of the cervix, profuse acrid leucorrhea, needle-like pains of the cervix.
Conium: used in pre-cancerous and cancerous lesions of the cervix; painful induration of the cervix.
Folliculinum: useful in disease of female genitalia.
Mercurius corrosivus: for fibroid tumors with profuse mucopurulent, excoriating leucorrhea.
