Homeopathy and Genital Warts
The beauty of homeopathy is that it does not suppress symptoms, but tries to eradicate the ‘root’ cause of health problems. Homeopathy can turn what looks like an unfortunate situation, such as genital warts, into an opportunity to treat - this will bring about better, also greater health and well-being on all levels.
We treated Maria for several years with homeopathy for recurrent sore throats and a weak constitution was distraught because she had been exposed by her previous boyfriend to genital warts. She was upset for multiple reasons: 1) the feeling that her previous boyfriend had betrayed her by not telling her that he had the condition; 2) the guilt she felt for exposing her current boyfriend to the condition, as he was also beginning to show symptoms; 3) she wanted to be a mother one day and was frightened at the prospect of passing this genetic taint onto her children and causing them health problems; 4) her mother was putting pressure on her to have the warts burned off, believing that this was the only effective way to get rid of the problem; and, 5) the shame she felt about the condition and not wanting it exposed.
By the time this young woman consulted us about this new problem, she had already begun the painful procedure of having the warts burned off.
Homeopathic theory contends that this is not the best treatment for warts, because it does not address the condition underlying their appearance, but only takes away the surface manifestation. The inner disease could now continue to develop at a potentially faster rate, because there would now be no outward evidence of its presence, and no way to monitor its progress since the external eruption was being interfered with. In homeopathic parlance, the primary state of the disease, or the warts, was being suppressed, while the inner disease or secondary state was left on its own to continue to develop unmonitored.
Maria and her mother did not understand that taking away the warts through external measures was not ‘curing’ the disease, nor was it limiting the contagiousness of the condition. If the warts were left alone and not interfered with by suppressive measures, she could pass the warts (or, the primary state of the disease) onto her sexual partner.
On the other hand, if the warts were removed by external means, then she could pass the disease onto her partner in its deeper form, and they could then potentially develop symptoms characteristic of the sycotic or gonorrhoea miasm (stain of the illness). Their child might show similar warts symptoms.
Homeopathic Treatment for Genital Warts
Educating the patient about homeopathic approach to the treatment for genital warts is of utmost priority. This means reviewing the patients' symptoms carefully in order to find a remedy that addressed not just the disease, but who the person is. Homeopaths do not treat people based on just the diagnosis, but on the whole symptom picture, discovered after taking the thorough homeopathic case of the patient.
In the above mentioned case of Maria, some of the symptoms, or characteristics, helped our doctors to find the remedy that helped her to get rid of the warts:
- Eating meals at irregular times, and skipping meals
- A craving for oranges and other citrus fruits
- A craving for fruit juices
- Hot feet in bed at night and a tendency to uncover them
- High evening energy, and frequently sleeping late at night
- Addiction to marijuana.
The remedy prescribed to her worked so quickly and the warts disappeared soon.
The founder of homeopathy, Dr Samuel Hahnemann, MD, believed that there were three primary diseases from which all other diseases stem. These three are the psoric, or itch miasm, the sycotic, or gonorrhoea miasm, and the syphilitic miasm. Genital warts are a symptom of the gonorrhoea miasm. He believed that the myriad combinations of these three diseases created all other diseases. For example, the combination of psora with syphilis created tuberculosis, and the combination of all three miasms created what he termed trimiasmatic diseases. Some of the trimiasmatic diseases are cancer, asthma, arthritis, eczema and others.
Genital warts are characteristic of the sycotic or gonorrhoea miasm, and to show you that simply removing the warts by external means does not address the far deeper changes in the individual, which can continue to develop once the warts are removed through external means. Treating with the indicated homeopathic remedy can eradicate the entire condition, and protect the offspring from this highly damaging miasm. As an aside, this miasm can also be created by the smallpox vaccine, which produces symptoms mimicking this miasm. The smallpox vaccines that many of us or our parents received may be one of the methods by which so many people in the population acquired sycotic symptoms.
The beauty of homeopathy is that it does not suppress symptoms, but tries to eradicate the ‘root’ cause of health problems. Homeopathy can turn what looks like an unfortunate situation, such as genital warts, into an opportunity to treat - this will bring about better, also greater health and well-being on all levels. By addressing one’s health problems from the inside out, homeopathy call help protect future offspring from inheriting tendencies towards disease states. If you are suffering from an illness or symptom, which you feel is unfortunate, please think of homeopathy, and watch how it can be transformed into an opportunity for safe and effective healing.
