Stop making her eat things. HPV is a virus, not a bacterium, so the bacteria in probiotics won’t do a thing for it, and neither will raw garlic.

No, it’s a virus.- This one hides pretty well from the immune system; however, in the majority of cases, the immune system will clear it eventually. Its’ constantly being re-infected with any of the high risk strains that seems to cause problems.

Echinacea, garlic, probiotics and vitamins will do nothing.

Edit: You should know that not one of those herbs and vitamins you mentioned has been demonstrated to “strengthen” the immune system.

Strenghthen the immune system by taking a few antioxidants such as vitamin c,e, and co-enzyme cq10–then look at the homeopathic remedies I found for you:
Good luck

Edit: ~Herbs don’t necessarily perform miracles (i said they would help immune NEVER claimed miracle cres-infact` but a healthy immune system (through diet and herbs) is the first defense of attack for a virus. Any medical Doctor will tell you that! Most viruses don’t have cures. Did you know Aids is a virus? So is Hepatitis. Neither have a solid sure yet. The first line of defense is your immune system especially when there isn’t a cure. THIS IS A FACT.
You’re friend isn’t even through her first year of med school and and doesn’t know the most basic thing about about health and healing. I’m a professional Nutritionist for 20 years. Chinese medicine has healed and has been around for thousands of years not 200 years. (FACT)At this point, I have more knowledge in my smallest toe plus I’m twice her age but good try with the insult. Many pharmaceutical drugs originate from a plant. These are facts that can’t be disputed. Do your research then get back to me if you can dispute these two facts which you cannot.

PS-Follow the money
You can ‘thumbs’ me down all you want but at the end of the day, a healthy immune system is exactly what fights all viruses. You are one of the many sheeple that believe that chemical poisons can heal a disease. Western medicine treats the symptoms not the underlying fact that caused the disease in the first place. You and the FDA are what is wrong with western medicine in this country. This counrty has never been sicker as right now. Go join the party.


Diet is the forst way to strengthen immune along with some hearbs.
This below was used BY DOCTORS before a 1st year med student was born. It has been tested by the medical community and has scholarly tests that have been proven.
It’s NOT an herb it’s from Mothers milk in humans and cows.
Lactoferrin and bovine colostrum for immune THIS is one of the best things that has been tested and proven to be very successful in treating aids patients 20 years ago
Drinking a good source of Aloe Vera Juice is very good for immune also Aloe Life-Lilly of the desert etc.
These products are all going to help. important.
Get sunight on skin. Very important for vit D and immunity
Get vitamin C from foods NOT tablets!
The best Doctor recommended probiotic is called check it out. It is the best. There are too many out there that are NOT WHAT THEY SAY they.

A healthy immune system starts with a healthy lifestyle. Eating a balance diet, getting your nutrients from food that you body can utilize, sleep 7 to 8 hours a night- the body immune system repairs and heals – 8 hours of sleep is important, exercise, reduce stress and limit alcohol to no more than 3 servings a week. A good multivitamin might help but not as much as a balanced diet…there has been studies that supported drinking green tea.

Echineacea and goldenseal should not be taken continuously. It is on for a few weeks then off…

The body can be thrown out of bounds with an onslaught of supplements that the body can’t process. It is wise to seek the advice of a good naturopathic doctor that can tailor a regiment that will focus on her bodies needs.

The Cabbage Family vs. Cancer
Cruciferous vegetables include broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, bok choy, and kale. These members of the cabbage family make an excellent stir fry and can really liven up a salad. But most importantly, components in these vegetables may help your body defend against cancers such as colon, breast, lung, and cervix
Don’t Rely on Supplements
Vitamins may help protect against cancer. But that’s when you get them naturally from food. Both the American Cancer Society and the American Institute for Cancer Research emphasize that getting cancer-fighting nutrients from foods like nuts, fruits, and green leafy vegetables is vastly superior to getting them from supplements. Eating a healthy diet is best

Herbs won’t do anything. Listen to Rhianna who is a medical professional, not some uneducated wacko who thinks herbs perform miracles.
