HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) is a group of about 200 related viruses some of which cause an STD condition in human beings characterized mainly by genital warts leading to Carcinoma if left untreated.
Low-risk group of pathogens generally don’t cause any disease condition except some causing warts around the genital area, anus, mouth and throat.
High -risk group of pathogens (mainly 14 types) causes several types of cancers. Among them, HPV 16 and HPV 18 are responsible for most HPV-related cancers.
HPV Infection - Symptoms
All sexually active males and females are vulnerable to HPV infection, but the immune system defends against most of such infections and usually don’t exhibit any symptoms. But high-risk HPV infections that survive the immunity mechanism, enter the tissues and start to multiply. This when remains untreated for a long period, leads to cancer.
HPV infection generally affects the genital area, anal area, and oral cavity mainly. Among them when it comes to the case of genital infection, the HPV symptoms will be as follows;
- Warts in the genital area.
When it remains untreated, it leads to cancer with clinical manifestations like;
- Pain during sexual intercourse.
- Pain in the pelvic region.
- Unusual discharge from vagina.
- Unusual vaginal bleeding after sexual intercourse.
- Weight loss.
It remains symptomless initially in most of the cases. It can be diagnosed by lab techniques such as;
- Pap smear examination.
Once diagnosed with HPV, treatment should be started earlier. There are multiple HPV treatment options ranging from topical creams to surgery, chemotherapy, etc depending on the severity of the disease. But they have adverse effects as well. Here comes the need for a treatment modality with good results and zero side effects.
The answer to this puzzle can be provided by the science of life, The Ayurveda. There are many Ayurveda treatments for HPV infection which are more effective, user-friendly, and with fewer adverse effects.
Basant is a clinically proven polyherbal formulation which prevents the entry of HPV-16 in cervical cells, and is proven to be effective in eliminating HPV-16 from infected cervical cells on path of progression to carcinoma of Cervix.
Basant prevents sexually transmitted infections: Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Candida, H.I.V..
Basant is composed of highly purified Curcumin, extracts of Amla (Emblica officinalis), Aloe vera (Aloe barbadensis) and Azadirachta indica (Neem) leaves along with pharmacologically approved excipients.
Benefits of the components.
There are mainly four types of herbs for HPV included in Basant. Let's have a look at how they are beneficial in Basant.
It is the active component of Curcuma longa (Turmeric) which is responsible for its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties.
It is a good anti-oxidant that inhibits the growth and multiplication of cancer cells. It is rich in Vitamin-C which has strong free radical scavenging properties, which will help the body during stressful situations.
Amla extract has beneficial action against the transcriptional activity of the human papillomavirus (HPV) and on activator protein-1 (AP-1). It was found that Indian gooseberry extract inhibits the DNA binding of activator protein (AP-1) in HPV16- and HPV18-positive cervical cancer cell lines.
Moreover, Amla is good in its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties as well.
It contains anti-inflammatory agents such as Bradi kinase enzyme, auxins, gibberellins, C-glucosyl chromone, and plant-origin steroids. Loin and emodin are chemical components with anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. Analgesic and anti-microbial properties are also exhibited by aloe vera due to the presence of plant steroids.
Neem contains anti-microbial components such as Nimbin, nimbolide, mahmoodin, gallic acid, geducin, catechin. It also contains Anti-inflammatory agents such as polysaccharides G2A. Besides these, Anti-tumour agents, polysaccharides G1A, and polysaccharides G1B are also seen in Neem.
