In brief: Stop smoking

We don't know the best way to help your body clear an hpv infection--aside from getting the hpv vaccine (gardasil) and not smoking.
I encourage patients to eat dark green, leafy vegetables and brightly colored fruits and veggies--they are usually higher in anti-oxidant levels. Smoking definitely hinders your ability to fight an hpv infection.
