Genital HPV (human papilloma virus) has rapidly become the most common virus in modern America. It’s estimated that upwards of 80% of the population has been infected by HPV in one form or another. According to the Center For Disease Control “is most commonly spread during vaginal or anal sex.”
Because of how common this virus has become, if you are sexually active at all you are at risk with every partner you come into contact with.

Can you get rid of HPV once you have it?
There’s no known cure at this time for the HPV virus. Prevention and defense are therefore the two best ways to fight the spread of the virus.
Does HPV cause or turn into disease?
Smoking increases the chance that women with the HPV virus will get cervical disease. According to disease.net “although almost all cervical diseases are caused by HPV, it is important to remember that most genital HPV infections will not cause disease.” Here is more information on disease and HPV.
How do men find out they have HPV?
Currently there’s no STD test for HPV in men. The only approved test for the HPV virus are for women being screened for cervical disease.
Can you give someone HPV if the virus is dormant?
No. While dormant, the virus is not spreadable. However, perhaps due to changes or weaknesses in the immune system, the virus may re-emerge and then become contagious again.
Because HPV is a blood-borne virus, there are two ways you can treat an infection.
- Boosting Your Immune System
- Blood Cleansing
The single most important thing is boosting your immune system to fight HPV. Your immunity is the system in your body that fights viral infections and is the key to fighting infections of any kind.
After the infection is clear, blood cleansers come in as a supportive role. They signal your body to filter your blood through your liver in order to remove the dormant virus from your body.
Boosting your immune system to fight HPV
Now that we have know a strong healthy immune system is necessary to fight HPV, here is how you can get your immunity to hit it’s maximum potential. Some of these you may not want to do but at least you will know everything natural option that is available to you. Left unchecked, HPV can turn into disease.
Eat Less Salt
Salt many people think is a necessary spice for your health. Rarely is it attacked and when it is people tend to suggested that you remove it entirely from your diet.
Although removing salt entirely is not necessary eating excessive amounts of salt definitely weaken your immune system and leave it vulnerable to the virus.
Even if you don’t exercise 20 minutes a day I know you have heard that it helps promote health. It is especially important to fight HPV and here is why: When your white blood cells latch onto the virus they remove it to your lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is not pumped by your heart and requires physical movement to stimulate flow.
Without exercise the dormant virus will remain in your lymphatic system for a very long time and your body needs your lymphatic system to carry the dormant virus to your liver, where it is filtered. The risk of the virus reinfecting your body is significantly reduced.
At least 20 minutes of exercise a day (or 5 at high intensity) will keep your circulation up, your immune system up and any potential viral infection down.
More Fruits, Less Refined Sugar
Refined sugar is a man-made, highly concentrated simple sugar that has no antioxidants. It’s the perfect food for any viral infection especially HPV. Many studies have shown that sugar more or less directly assaults your immune system leaving it weak and vulnerable to infection.
Fruits, on the other hand, are high in antioxidants and are one of natures absolute best immune boosters. Some of the best antiviral foods are fruits and berries. Blueberries, acai berries, Cranberries, Pomegranate, Schizandra, Plums, and Oranges, are all incredibly rich in antioxidants. Just one serving of any of these berries a day can help prevent colds viral infection and fight HPV by supercharging your immunity.
Herbs and Supplements for HPV
There are a lot of options when it comes to boosting your immune system and also a bunch more that fight viral infection. To keep things simple though there is one herb that has a lot of clinical studies showing it’s effectiveness for fighting HPV infection.
Because of that the only herb that I strongly recommend for daily supplementation both to prevent and to combat HPV infection is Schizandra.
Schizandra is a five flavored berry, it is antiviral, rich in antioxidants, a two stage liver cleanser and an absolute powerhouse when it comes to balancing your system and fighting infection long term.
Schizandra fights HPV right at it’s core, killing the virus, building the immune system and cleansing the blood. I recommend you take 1/2 teaspoon of high quality Schizandra concentrate twice a day for 100 days (2-3 grams a day).
Second to schisandra, Turmeric curcumin would be a key ingredient to fight disease and viral infection.
