Many years ago, I used to venture out every other Saturday for my bi-weekly manicure (french tips, of course) because a girl always feels pretty when her feet (and toes) look good. Eventually, I developed warts on the ring and middle fingers of my right hand. This had absolutely nothing to do with the manicures. But, I became self conscious about my fingers when the warts grew large enough to cause the nailbeds to become misshapened and the manicurists would comment on them. I tried everything to get rid of these warts: freezing, Compound W, duct tape (yeah, there really are a million and one ways to use duct tape), everything! Nothing worked. The warts might get a little smaller for a while, but they kept coming back. And, they invited their cousins to join them! It appeared that I had some kind of virus in my system that manifested in warts, rather than the plain old, run-of-the-mill topical kind. Yippee! I'm special.
About a year and a half ago, my mother-in-law recommended that I try Grapefruit Seed Extract. This is an absolutely vile, revolting concoction of the most sour tasting stuff you could ever imagine. But, I decided that, if it was going to work, I was going to keep at it. So, I mixed 10 drops of extract in a shotglass full of water, choked it down and followed it up with a nice citrus-flavored juice as a chaser. After a couple of days, I noticed a marked improvement in the size of the warts. After a few weeks, they were completely gone. My fingers were normal looking again. It's been over a year and they still have not come back. Amazing stuff.
Grapefruit seed extract is also recommended for colds, gastrointestinal disorders, upset stomach, diarrhea, poison ivy/oak, rashes, cold sores and even head lice, dandruff and chicken pox. It's amazing what a few drops of grapefruit seed extract can naturally do to your body's immune system. It's also available in pill form, but the liquid gets absorbed into your system much easier.
