In ancient times, many associated warts with something concerned with evil or dealing with witchcraft. From that, you can all of those stereotypical images of witches or trolls with big warts. However, warts really have nothing to do with fantasy, as they are simply caused by a viral infection in the body, and the body is merely reacting to the problem. Warts can appear one place and then move to another. Most of the time, they do not even stick around for very long. They can appear for a matter of weeks and then disappear naturally without the use of freezing or surgical removal. Warts, are very normal in the human body, and tend to be a good sign that the immune system is working. However, they can also be a good indicator of several other matters.

One of the best ways to take care of warts is by altering your diet to vegetables and fruits that naturally migrate to the surface of the skin. Garlic, onions, and peppers are excellent because the supply a dose of natural acidic substances to your body and then seep to the skin. While garlic on the skin might not smell the best, warts hate the stuff. The same strategy goes for onions as well, so it is important to eat these vegetables when possible. Also, avoid eating animal products like meat, eggs, and cheese. The reason is that warts can feed off of these proteins and become even larger and more pronounced.
