Warts can be treated very effectively with classical homeopathy. We treat all kinds of warts, including genital/hpv warts and plantar warts. In order for treatment to be effective, an appointment must be booked at the clinic.
The standard medical approach involves pharmaceutical medications, topical creams and surgical options such as electrocautery, laser treatment and cryosurgery. Traditional treatments don’t prevent recurrence. In contrast, homeopathy gets to the root of the problem and prevents recurrence. Homeopathic treatment is painless, non-invasive and has no side effects.
Scientific Studies Prove the Effectiveness of Homeopathy for the Treatment of Warts
Out of 66 cases, 14 defaulted [verruca vulgaris 12; verruca plana 1; verruca plantaris 1]. Thus 52 cases were finally analysed [verruca vulgaris 21; verruca plana 11; verruca plantaris 19; verruca vulgaris and plana 1]. Out of 52 cases warts disappeared completely in 47 cases; no change was observed in three, and in two cases the number of lesions increased.
This trial was reported in two parts, one to evaluate the efficacy of homoeopathy for warts (remedies included Ruta graveolens, Nitricum acidum, Dulcamara, Causticum and Thuja) the other to evaluate the homoeopathic remedy, Calcarea carbonica, for Molluscum contagiosum. Placebo controlled studies involving a total of 147 subjects using single remedies in 30C potencies three times daily, 200C twice daily and 1M daily, for 15 days, showed that homoeopathy was superior to placebo. Thuja was the most successful of the remedies used for warts and Calcarea carbonicum in Molluscum contagiosum.

In this study, 14 people suffering from recurrent HPV, previously unresponsive to microsurgical procedures, were treated with individualised homeopathy and assessed via cytology prior to treatment, during, and 1 year after commencing treatment. At the final 1year assessment, 11 of the 14 subjects were declared to be cured.
A girl, Miss TN, 12 years of age had 3-4 warts on the fingers of the right hand. Thuja 200, then 1M was given with good hopes. To my consternation the number of warts went up to the ominous 13. I reviewed the case this revealed a very affectionate nature with care for each member of family in sickness or grief, together with craving for salt, aversion to sweets, and right-handed warts. Why not Causticum? The remedy in 1M and 10M potency, in infrequent doses, removed the warts one and all.
Few months back her mother came to me for her old aching joints. On enquiry, she informed that the girl is married, blessed with a son, happy and wartless.
A Case of Genital Warts
A young woman, I will call her Courtney, felt devastated about contracting genital warts from her boyfriend. Feeling angry and betrayed, Courtney had conducted hours of research and explored her many options for eliminating the warts. She was convinced that having the warts burned off by her physician was her best option. However, afraid of enduring the pain associated with such a procedure, she was hopeful that a more gentle approach, such as homeopathy, could help.
Courtney’s biggest concern was the implication of the warts on her overall health. She saw the genital warts as a life sentence, something she would contend with for the rest of her life. She was afraid of possible future complications, including cervical cancer. In addition, Courtney wanted to have children some day and was frightened by the thought of passing the warts prenatally.
Genital warts is a sexually transmitted disease caused by a sub-type of the human papillomavirus (HPV). It spreads by skin-to-skin contact via sexual activity. While only a small percentage infected with genital HPV actually develop genital warts, they can transmit the virus to sexual partners.
Since homeopathy is concerned with treating the person as a whole being, I investigated many aspects of Courtney’s health, medical history, and emotional well-being. I explained to her that simply removing the warts by external means (burning or surgical removal) did not remove the disease or its contagious aspect. I further explained that homeopathic treatment could not only wipe out her warts, but also address the internal cause; the root which made her susceptible to genital warts in the first place. Homeopathic treatment can diminish and eliminate the predisposition to warts and the possibility of passing the virus onto partners and children.
Courtney was a compulsive worrier. As a result her family members often called her “worry wart.” Interest-ingly, the term describes a person who worries or stresses to the point of causing them to develop worry warts – or fever blisters.
The remedy I chose for Courtney was Calcarea Carbonicum. My decision was based on many factors combined, including her tendency to be overweight, along with her glandular swellings, excessive sweating, sleepwalking, nightmares of being pursued, cravings for and sensitivity to dairy products, anxiety about health, and fears about death and poverty.
The genital warts disappeared within three weeks of daily use of the remedy, and Courtney reported feeling stronger than ever before. After three months of taking the prescribed homeopathic remedy, Courtney had more energy and felt happier than ever before. She proudly reported feeling calmer, the disappearance of her sleepwalking and nightmares, and getting rid of the cheating boyfriend.
Case of Plantar Warts
A 52-year-old man consulted me about his painful plantar warts – one on each heel. When the first wart appeared under his right foot, James tried a few over-the-counter medications, as well as home remedies including the freezing kit, the plantar wart pads, and the duct tape method, to no avail. He then had the wart surgically removed. Not only did the wart grow back a year later, he also developed one on the other foot.
James suffered from headaches due to his sluggish digestion. Consuming fatty foods, or exposure to direct sunlight, were two guaranteed triggers of his headaches. He had dry skin in general, suffered from mild sleep apnea, and had chronic constipation. He used words like “kind,” “gentle,” and “sensitive” when describing himself. He had difficulty asserting his needs and avoided confrontations at all costs. Based on this data and other details about James’ medical history, I selection the remedy Natrum carbonicum.
James was pleasantly surprised with the effects that the remedy had on his overall health. While the plantar warts did not change during the first month, James was digesting better, his headaches became less frequent and he was sleeping deeper. A month later, the wart under his right food became smaller and less painful. Soon after, both warts disappeared completely.
