HPV and immune system

Posted , 9 users are following.

I have hpv for about 1 year. The biggest problem is the remission of genital warts after a certain period of time. I've read a lot of articles about how the immune system may affect HPV help to defeat this virus. But when I asked my doctor about this, he could not exactly answer whether immunity has to do with the frequent return of genital warts. Does anyone knows something more about this topic ? Does immune system plays a big roll in treathing HPV ?

    If your Doctor cannot answer this I feel that you perhaps need a different doctor!

    A reduced immune system will not help surely but I think you will need a specialist for specific advice as to what to do to help

    In some cases warts on the skin can be chemically frozen. Some of the virus can remain in the skin and can grow a new wart and will need frozen again. Eventually that area may stop producing warts. The virus will most likely remin in the system and can allow warts to form at other areas. HPV can be spread by contact with the wart (skin to skin) as well as close contact such as sex (bodily fluids). Unfortunantely there is not yet a cure to irradicate the virus from ones system. HPV is a very common virus and is carried by a very large percentage of the population. Warts can show in months or years after infection. The immune system can suppress the virus and is thought that it may sometimes clear the virus. Vaccines are now available to help prevent the virus in folks that are not infected.

    After treatment some 30 years ago, and a spread to my anus I could not explain, they finally went away on there own. I am a believer that the mind can control the body to a point. I know there was no connection but I borrowed Tom Sawyer's stolen disrag trick to get rid of the warts and it worked. It took 18 months of not thinking of it and mainly staying out of relationships, but they have never come back. I have sex much less than I did in my 30-40's but when the wife and I do, whom both have a different kind of gential herps, we both give each other the feeling that we might break out. We never do and leave the sex alone for another month or so.

    Positive thinking, reduced stress (relate it to your death) and the true belief that your mind does affect your body, good and bad, and you have some control over that ... can cure your physical aliments of this type.

    I first discovered that I had HPV genital warts in March of this year. Prior to that I didnt dispute test done (apparently it may have been laying dormant). Anyway I suffered for it for 4 & a half months, then through using a method back in July, the warts were gone within a matter of days! - I couldn't believe it!

    I've been free for almost 6 months! - From my research, I've read that after 6months, if the warts have not reappeared then its VERY unlikely the warts will come back! - Your immune system really does play a part in defeating this infection.

    Getting your warts frozen off just doesn't work, because the roots of the problem is still there, & don't talk of the pain after each treatment.

    If you would like to know what I used, please message. Good luck with everything! Blessings

    HPV is a viral infection that cannot be killed. Only your immune system can empower to handle it. Hence, you need to try the immune boosting products that can help to boost up your immune system. You can try the herbs such as hypericin, monolaurine, gingko biloba, etc for boosting up your immunity.
