A note about Duct Tape Warts Removal Remedy
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
They can be surgically removed, taken off with lasers, burned or frozen off. Vaccines are available that prevent them, and they can even be injected with a substance that causes an allergic reaction, which in turn causes the body to reject them.
Then, there are also many natural treatments and home remedies for removing warts naturally.
But certainly one of the most unusual methods to come to light in recent years is the claim that applying duct tape directly to the infected area causes warts to be cured. Can this idea of a duct tape warts treatment be true? Recent studies seem to indicate that there is some validity to these claims.
In fact, these studies show the use of duct tape for wart removal to be even more effective than cryotherapy (freezing). It produces little to no scarring and does not require the supervision of medical professionals. Many major pediatric dermatologists regularly practice duct tape removal therapy and have incorporated the treatment as a standard for defense.
While waiting for warts to disappear spontaneously can take up to two years, duct tape warts removal can produce results in as little as one month. This means that if the affected person does not deem the removal to be necessary immediately, as with surgical removal, than this treatment is ideal. It also appears to be more effective in children than in adults, but grown-ups can benefit from the process also.
No one is sure why duct tape wart removal works, but a few theories have been postulated. One idea is that it removes the dead skin from the affected area gradually, eliminating the virus that is present. Another presumption is that it somehow suffocates the infection, not allowing it to breathe, which in turn kills the virus. Still another guess is that by enclosing or blocking the wart, it somehow kicks the body's immune system into gear to fight the virus.
Perhaps the duct tape fools the body into thinking that there is an inflammation in the area, which also triggers the immune system. The great advantage of removing warts with duct tape is that it is cheap and painless. Studies have not been concluded with other types of tape to see if they have the same effect, or whether duct tape alone holds some type of magical healing quality.
So, how do you go about duct tape warts removal treatment?
The method for removal is simple. Cover the wart each evening with duct tape (some also apply salicylic acid (Compound W) before, applying to the wart only). In the morning, remove the tape and soak the wart in warm water, and use an emery board or pumice stone to file the wart off if necessary. Then simply repeat the process until the wart is removed. With the use of this duct tape warts removal remedy, you should be able to see the wart physically shrink day after day.
Another method for duct tape warts removal treatment is to cover the wart with duct tape for a period of up to 7 days. Similarly, after you remove the duct tape, you should soak the wart in warm water and then try to file it off with an emery board or pumice stone.
As with any wart removal technique, duct tape merely gets rid of the effect of the virus, but the virus still remains. The jury is still out on the incidence of warts reoccurring with this removal method.
