And one of the main properties of goldenseal is immune reinforcement. Based on this, it is effective against certain types of viruses, including HPV.
Properties of Goldenseal
Goldenseal is a plant native to southeastern Canada and the northeastern United States. It’s found in certain forests and, because of its natural properties, is highly sought after, to the point where it can sometimes be hard to find.
One of the earliest uses of this plant was in the preparation of home remedies for fever or as a diuretic. However, it was also used as a natural mosquito repellent and to treat eye infections.
Does Goldenseal Work Against HPV?
Goldenseal is recognized as a natural antiviral, thanks to its ability to enhance the immune response against various types of viruses. Because of this, it’s a natural method for reducing the effects of HPV.
The use of this plant against infectious processes has been harnessed for a long time, and it’s especially effective against microbial infections. However, it also provides positive effects against viruses.
How to use it for improving skin lesions
In addition to the benefits of goldenseal in combating HPV by optimizing immune defenses, it’s a natural compound that can fight certain skin lesions.
This is due to its antiseptic properties and its ability to improve the skin at the cellular level. Some suggest preparing a homemade ointment with goldenseal to treat genital warts.
While this plant may offer intriguing benefits, such as its anti-inflammatory property, in cases of extensive outbreaks of these lesions, it’s best to first consult a doctor for evaluation.
How to Use Goldenseal to Fight HPV?
One of the benefits of goldenseal for treating and overcoming HPV symptoms is consuming a tea or infusion made from the plant. This helps strengthen the immune response.
In various botanical or naturopathic medicine stores, you can find products to make tea or infusions with this plant.
However, you can prepare a homemade remedy by following the steps below:
- Place a cup of water in a pot or pan and let it cook until it boils.
- Once the water reaches boiling point, add a tablespoon of goldenseal leaves.
- Let it cook for one more minute and remove from heat to let the infusion cool, then strain the infusion.
It’s best to drink a goldenseal infusion daily in its most natural form, without sweeteners or artificial additives.
