How Can You Treat HPV? Medicinal Mushrooms Can Potentially Help
HPV, human papillomavirus, is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI). About 79 million Americans are infected with HPV, with about 14 million are newly infected every year. Most of the infected are in their late teens or early 20’s. HPV is usually harmless and goes away on its own, but some types can lead to genital warts or cancer. Many people with HPV have no symptoms, so they usually don’t even know they’re infected. (1) Genital HPV is so common, that most people who have sex will contract it at some point in their lives. If you want to know how to help HPV, medicinal mushrooms can potentially help.
HPV: Protect Yourself
There is no cure for HPV, but there are many things you can do to prevent its negative impact on your health.
Vaccinations can help protect against contracting certain types of HPV. The vaccine can protect against the diseases caused by HPV, including cervical, penile, throat, and uterine cancers.
Condom protection can help lower chances of getting HPV, although not prevent it completely.
Routine screenings are important to prevent or monitor HPV associated diseases or cancers. Pap tests can detect abnormal cells in your cervix and your doctor, ob-gyn, or nurse can monitor any problems.
There is currently no test to detect high-risk HPV in people with penises, so the best course of action is to get vaccinated, use condoms, and get regular check-ups. It is important to know that even if you don’t present symptoms, you can still pass HPV to your partner(s). Keep reading to learn about HPV medicinal mushrooms.
HPV and Medicinal Mushrooms
So why is a mushroom company writing about HPV? Because medicinal mushrooms can potentially help! Medicinal mushrooms have been shown to have powerful immune-modulating effects on the body. They have been shown to help improve and enhance our natural immune response if it is low, or help balance and calm the immune response if it is out of whack. Mushrooms in studies generally have an anti-tumor influence on the body because of their ability to enhance our deep immunity and promote cancer cell death.
HPV Medicinal Mushrooms
Two mushrooms that have proven to be helpful in reducing the severity of HPV are Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum) and Turkey Tail (Trametes versicolor). A research report published in the International Journal of Medicinal Mushrooms demonstrated an 88% clearance rate in a group of people who were tested positive for HPV16 and HPV18 after 2 months of treatment with a blend of Reishi, Turkey Tail and Laetiporus sulphureus. (2) These mushrooms show promise in treating high-risk HPV. Another scientific report published in the International Journal of Medicinal Mushrooms showed that extracts of Reishi were able to suppress HPV16, the type of HPV that can lead to cervical cancer.
