Genital Warts: How Diet Plays a Role

Thursday, 10 Feb 2011 03:50 PM

Genital warts or Condyloma acuminate are flat or cauliflower shaped growths found around the genital area.
A healthy diet for someone with genital warts consists of food rich in beta carotene and folic acid. It should also consist of fruits and vegetables that are rich in color. Mangoes, radish, squash, tomatoes, cabbage, spinach, and other such green leafy vegetables are an important part of the diet. Sufficient intake of vitamin D from cheese, milk, and other dairy products are also important constituents in the diet for genital warts. Nutrients like vitamin C are known for attacking and weakening the specific virus that causes this disease.
It is not wise to rely solely on diet to fight genital warts. The main objective is to prevent further outbreaks of genital warts while getting control over the existing outbreaks. To achieve this, the body’s immune system needs to be boosted via a diet. You should limit the use of cigarettes, caffeine, and reduce your intake of sugars and refined foods. Limiting red meat and having plenty of water, regular exercise, and sufficient sleep is also advised.
