Our approach to a natural treatment of human papillomavirus (HPV), a primary cause of abnormal cervical PAPs that can lead to cervical cancer, is to promote healing of the cervix by providing proper nutrients and herbs to initiate normal cell growth in the cervical tissues. We assist in strengthening the body’s immune system to fight the HPV virus, as well as provide natural antiviral therapies. Although there is no “cure” for HPV, we work with patients to put HPV virus into dormancy so it does not become active.
We recommend supplementing with targeted nutrients and botanicals that have been scientifically researched for their ability to fight the HPV virus and to heal abnormal cervical cells. In addition to providing the proper nutrients, it is important to optimize the body’s ability to detoxify through the liver and kidneys. When necessary, acupuncture may be used in conjunction with the cervical escharotic treatments to enhance the healing of the cervix and whole body. Lab work is ordered for each patient to address underlying health issues that may contribute to compromised healing of the cervix and decreased immunity.
The natural treatment approach to HPV and cervical dysplasia is a preferred choice by many patients rather than to invasive medical procedures such as the loop electrosurgical excision procedure, or laser and freezing that removes a section of the cervix—procedures that often lead to a high risk of prolonged bleeding, scarring, and future pregnancy risks such as miscarriages and premature births.
Our patients who proactively continue with their recommended post treatment plan and permanently adopt a healthy lifestyle do not exhibit recurrences of HPV or cervical dysplasia after their treatments. Many of our patients also experience resolution or improvements with pre-existing health conditions as the whole body is treated, not just the cervix.
