I've had warts since 1999. I know. It sounds crazy. Most people will tell you that warts will go away within a few years on their own, but mine just have slowly multiplied. Now I have a small one on the print of my thumb, two under my big toe, and three on the ball of my foot at the base of the toes. I've done a LOT to get rid of them from freezing to home treatments to laser surgery. The last time I saw a dermatologist he recommended chemotherapy (YIKES) which has the slight risk of actually giving me cancer later in life. This sounds like no option for me. All treatments were very painful, so eventually I just stopped trying to make them go away. I've been eating mostly paleo with only a few days off since the middle of June. I'm now 16 days in to my W30. I've noticed that my warts are less painful than they used to be, and I'm thinking that this is due to my body inflammation being under control. My doctor has said that I have "low immune system functioning," which I now attribute solely to dietary stress. I was always a sick kid (asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, chronic sinus infections, ear infections, depression) and oif course was fed a Standard American Diet (SAD). I'm just wondering if there's anyone out there who has experienced a wart disappearing on a paleo diet? Maybe my body will have the opportunity to recognize the wart virus and clean it out of my body? I think I had leaky gut, possibly my whole life, that is now finally healing. I know my "wheat belly" is all but gone now. I don't remember ever seeing my stomach so flat! This would be really nice, as I'm a yoga teacher and always feel the need to hide my warts from my students. Not to mention trying not to infect anyone else by walking on the bare floor!
