Diary of Unknown Symptoms

Mystery of the Internal Vibration

Entry for February 23, 2007

I’ve had a new wart on my left hand for a couple of weeks now. I always seem to have them and I generally leave them alone but I lately, I’ve noticed that it has slowly disappeared. I had a stubborn wart that was removed by the acupuncture last year but I always seem to get them. It’s off to google to find out why?

Potassium Deficiency for Warts and Moles: When cysts or tumors grow in places where they can be seen outside the body, often we react by having them cut out. This defeats healing by working on the effect instead of the cause. You can cut cysts out, tumors off, and burn warts off (which are also a potassium deficiency), or get rid of as many moles as you wish, but unless you go to the cause, they will grow back again, and you may end up with as many or more cysts, tumors, moles as before. Different signs of potassium deficiency will keep popping out on the body because the condition that needs correcting is on the inside.

WOW! Isn’t that amazing? I’ve just started taking two capsules of the NuLife potassium last week. But I do some more googling and find another link between warts and zinc.

Warts: When They’ve Had Every Treatment But the Zinc

In patients with recalcitrant warts, low serum zinc levels may point the way to clearance.

Investigators in Iraq designed a double-blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled, prospective trial of oral zinc sulfate in the treatment of recalcitrant warts (common, plantar, and planar). They recruited 80 patients, each of whom had more than 15 resistant warts. For 2 months, 40 patients were treated with oral zinc sulfate (3 doses totaling 10 mg/kg/day, to a maximum of 600 mg/day), and 40 received placebo. If clearance occurred, patients were followed for 2 to 6 months to assess recurrence.

In the zinc group, 23 patients completed treatment, 20 of whom (87%) had clearance of warts within 2 months. Dropouts were described as lost to follow-up. In the placebo group, 20 patients completed treatment, and no response occurred in any patient. All patients had low serum levels of zinc at baseline, but none had symptoms of zinc deficiency. Local itching after 5 days of therapy, increase in size, and tenderness were associated with clearance of the warts. All patients in the zinc group experienced nausea from the treatment. Vomiting and epigastric pain in this group were common but did not interfere with treatment. Warts in the zinc group did not recur during follow-up.

Comment: The treatment of warts can be frustrating for both patients and dermatologists. This report suggests that zinc therapy for warts is very helpful in patients with low serum levels of zinc. It would be useful to know whether recalcitrant warts are a new sign of preexisting or acquired zinc deficiency, and further studies in other countries are warranted. For now, patients who have recalcitrant warts might be willing to tolerate a few weeks of nausea to finally clear their warts. It may be useful to check serum zinc levels before treatment.

So was it the zinc or the potassium? I’ve been taking zinc since the beginning of February and I’ve started back on the potassium since the beginning of January.

Based on my experience with the copper effecting my magnesium, I’m willing to bet that I have low levels of zinc.
