Warts

Recommended Posts

Where do you get salt pork? Would bacon do? Do you cook it first? :blink:

Well, actually, folk remedies can seem strange to us who are bombarded with industrialized medical concepts, but they actually make a lot of sense. The salt pork is so rich in salt and it's the salt that is drawing out the offending thing. The sliver of pork is easy to keep in place. Now it is true that warts are caused by a virus, so they may return, but I can tell you this was the ONLY effective method for me growing up- AND for my daughter today. It also cured a NASTY foot infection that had every specialist scratching their heads on my kid's Dad's foot in less than a week!

Salt pork is in the meat section and if it's not out, usually if you ask the butcher, he'll get you some. I keep it in the freezer. Also delicious to cut off a small chunk and cook with fresh string beans. (That's French, too!) I'm French and Greek so we've got ALL KINDS of "crazy" remedies for stuff! Good luck!

Bacon might work- I don't know if it's as salty as pork though.

Thanks, Lisa--I'm gonna try it!

Remember to be religious about keeping it on and sprinkle some salt on the salt pork, too, each time you change it.

Good luck!

My son had molluscum which is a body wart. I use this tincture or iodine, tea trea oil and and something else. I can't remember where I found it. It was on line. It may have been Forces of Nature. Anyway, it cleared them up in two weeks.
