One afternoon, my youngest came to me (he was only eight at the time) and was complaining of pain in his pinky toe. Upon further examination, I realized we were dealing with a pesky plantar wart. As a parent, it’s always difficult to see your child in discomfort. And when it comes to something like a plantar wart on their foot, it can be even more frustrating because it seems like there’s not much you can do to help.
Plantar warts are hard, grainy growths that appear on the sole of the foot, typically in areas where there is pressure or friction. Plantar warts can be painful when pressure is applied, and they may appear as a single wart or in clusters. They are most common in children and teenagers, as their immune systems are still developing and are more susceptible to viral infections. While plantar warts are generally harmless, they can be difficult to treat and may take several months to go away on their own or with medical intervention.
I had two options: Cryotherapy (aka freezing warts off) at the dermatologist or trying Homeopathy. Well, the first option was not in a million years for us. Because we use homeopathic remedies in our home. Homeopathy is a much more gentle approach than this painful first option for treatment. Plus, when using Homeopathy, you have the chance of uprooting the condition vs driving it deeper into the body.
Antimonium crudum is a homeopathic remedy that is commonly used for skin conditions, including warts. I grabbed the black sulfide mineral and chose to dose him 200c every other day. And much to my amazement, his symptoms shifted rather quickly. Just after five doses, the body completely expelled the wart and then it only took four more doses for the skin to heal.
Overall, homeopathic remedies offer a natural and holistic approach to healthcare that supports the body’s innate healing abilities. They are safe, effective, and sustainable, and can be used to treat a wide range of conditions. As more people turn to alternative forms of medicine, homeopathy continues to be a popular choice for those seeking natural, non-toxic solutions to their health concerns.
Antimonium crudum for the WIN! This gem of a remedy was not only a safe and effective option for treating my son’s plantar wart, but we’ve uprooted the condition from his body! I’m grateful to have discovered it.
