How Do You Get Warts?You can get warts by being infected by the human papilloma virus or HPV. A wart is in reality a non-cancerous growth caused by an infection by this type of virus.
There are many strains of the human papilloma virus and some of these types cause different type of warts. This virus is contagious and it can enter into your body from small cuts or scratches on your skin as well as by other ways.
There are many ways where you can get warts by being contaminated by HPV. In fact you can get them by:
• Direct contact with a wart of another person
• Direct contact with another person who is a carrier of the virus
• Using object that has been touched by another person that has the virus
• Sexual activity
• Frequenting certain places where the HPV dwells
Direct contact with the wart of another person may transfer the virus to your body. This is more frequent in children and adolescents than in adults. While children are playing football or other sports that require physical contact it is quite easy that they pass the virus by unconsciously touching the warts of other individuals.
It is also important to be aware that an individual may have the virus even if no type of growth has developed. This is because the virus not always develops into any type of growth. So an individual may transmit the virus without having developed any growth himself. However the individual that has been contaminated may develop the wart.
You can get warts by touching objects that had been touched by other individuals that carry the virus. This includes such objects as towels and shoes.
Warts and Your Way of Life
Your way of life has a huge impact on your warts.You should limit the intake of certain foods such as the so called junk foods, fried foods, additives, sugars and margarine. Nowadays these are very common and are both quite handy and tasty. But being tasty does not mean that they are doing any good for your warts.
Refrain from drinking beverages that contain caffeine. These include in particular many soft drinks, coffee and tea. Pay particular attention to foods that contain aspartame. Beverages that contain aspartame may be low in calories but aspartame is surely not the best food you can take for your health.
Drink a lot of water. Remember that our body is largely made of water and water has purifying properties.
Try to avoid stress as far as possible. If you find this to be difficult try first to avoid stressful situations such as places where there are elevated sound levels, overcrowding, traffic jams and try to avoid situations where you have lack of control.
Try to avoid polluted environment as far as possible since poisonous gases are a major cause of many physical and psychological alignments.
It is a good idea to include physical exercise into your routine. This has various advantages. Physical exercise reduces stress and helps to counter the effects of depression.

Physical exercise may also make you sweat and this has a purifying effect. A sauna can also induce sweating and so consider this relaxation method as well.
It is important to keep a balance in everything you do. Remember that we are not physical beings but also spiritual beings.
