Any warts, like common warts, genital warts, flat warts and tumors and growths in general are in ayurvedic perspective symptoms of excess of the two elements of water and earth, the Kapha dosha. These growths are actually the results of too much phlegm in the system. Phlegm is considered wet, cold and heavy.
This means that it will be easier to contract these viral skin diseases during childhood and puberty while one is in the body-builder phase of life, the kapha phase when the two elements mentioned (earth and water) easily get out of balance and in excess in the body.
This is a phase when milk and the taste of sweet tend to dominate the diet, and this aggravates kapha dosha further, making the individual more susceptible to these viral infections, and to the production of growths in general, and to phlegm diseases like infectious respiratory tract disorders. Need I mention the colds, flus, sinusitis, the painful ear infections, allergies, bronchitis and asthma? These are all well known diseases that dominate in the youngsters (children and youth), and are classified as kapha or phlegm diseases, just like the warts are.
In Ayurvedic tradition, the tastes represent signals to the body and mind and the constitution in general. The signals are best understood when comparing them with hormones. Hormones are signal substances in the body that have extremely potent actions throughout. They tell the body and mind to behave in special ways. The classic example is the anabolic steroids. The signal from these is for the body to build up, to gather substance, weight, muscles, fat and solidity.
The sweet taste consists of the elements of earth and water,- the same elements that aggravate the kapha dosha in all individuals when ingested in excess. For Kapha constitutions, and for individuals in the kapha period in life, this tendency of the sweet taste to create imbalances is accentuated. The sweet taste has the same signal effect on an energy level as the anabolic steroids. This is also true for the diary products and milk. So ingestion of milk, diary products in general, and sugars and sweet tasting elements aggravates the kapha dosha, and predisposes the individual for phlegm diseases like the above mentioned, and for warts and growths of all kinds.
Now this corresponds well with the observation that common warts, flat warts and molluscs occur more frequently in children, and genital warts, flat warts and plantar warts more frequently in young adults before the pitta period in life starts in adulthood.
So, what will ameliorate and balance this tendency to form growths like the different warts? It is the pungent and bitter tastes. Pungent contains the elements of fire and air (dry and hot), and bitter consists of the elements of air (vayu) and ether (akasha), representing dryness, lightness and cold.
The bitter taste takes care of the tendency for the heaviness and moisture to build in excess in the body, and the pungent taste removes the build up of coldness. Both tastes eases the heaviness and moisture, and together they remove and reduce the phlegm, the water and earth excess in the constitution.
The warts don’t go away just by changing the diet to more bitter and pungent tasting food. But a change in diet will support such a healing, and make other medical approaches more effective. If changes are not made in the diet, we all know that warts tend to pop up after treatment, and this tendency will be reduced by the dietary changes. Weigh reduction will also help, if overweight is an issue, like it often is, for example with skin tags in adults.
In the medical realm, essential oils (light and airy, etheric and volatile) should be perfect to reduce the phlegm or kapha in the body that makes it susceptible to skin growths in general, and viral HPV infections in the skin in particular.
Does such medical remedies exist?
Yes they do. Remedies for warts, based on essential oils are available world wide on the internet. Some dietary changes should be made, but the remedies are efficient in and of themselves, even without dietary support, due to their light, airy, hot, etheric and volatile nature.
Another side of the Essential Oils And Ayurveda is that they have strong scents, which effects a strong influence on the lower chackra,- the earth center in the body, the earth element. When we bring in the oils to relieve the heaviness, coldness (many essential oils are hot, pungent in nature, and represent certain elements of fire also), and moisture of the phlegm with their airy, light and hot nature of the essential oils, their special healing effects, which may not always correspond with the action of their elements, will take efficient action in the body.
This is supported by the testimonials from people having used the oils to remove such growths from their skin. The warts simply disappear, and the ayurvedic perspective and explanation may provide a better rationale for their action than a more scientific one, emphasising the inhibition and destruction of the virus and its actions in the skin and body.
From an ayurvedic viewpoint, the Essential Oils And Ayurveda are close to perfect solutions to warts and growths, as you can see from this theoretical analysis. That this is supported by testimonials from all over the globe makes it even more interesting, and the essential oils should be the treatment of choice for such conditions. Together with effects of dietary changes, the effects of the essential oils guarantees the results. Taken the usual medical approaches into consideration, the most scientific and logic approach would be the essential oils. The medical approaches are baseless, not in the sense that they are ineffective, but in the sense that their rationale is somewhat less sophisticated and unsupported, and even hard to understand at times. They also do work though, but are much rougher; like the lazer therapy, cryosurgery and OTC remedies.
