Treat Cervical Cancer Naturally

Learning how to treat cervical cancer is as much about treating the symptoms of both the disease and the cures (such as chemotherapy) as it is about helping your body to defeat the illness on your own. Cervical cancer happens when abnormal cells on the cervix begin to grow out of control and is one of the most common cancers found in women world-wide. It is very often successfully treated when found early through preventative measures like a Pap smear test. Make sure that you get regular cervical cancer screenings!

What are the symptoms of Cervical Cancer?

  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding that may occur between periods, after sex or after menopause
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Changes in your menstrual cycle that are unexplained such as late or early periods
  • Anemia caused by the abnormal vaginal bleeding
  • Pelvic, leg or back pain that is ongoing
  • Urinary problems caused by blockage of a kidney or ureter
  • Stool or urine leakage into the vagina caused by a fistula that has developed
  • Weight loss

What can cause Cervical Cancer?

Cervical cancer, like other cancers, is caused by changes in the cells of the cervix that are severely abnormal. The cells in the transformation zone, the place where columnar cells change into squamous cells, are constantly changing making it the most likely place for these abnormal changes to occur. Regular pap smears are important because the pap smear checks for these abnormal cells and can let a doctor know what your risk of developing cervical cancer is. You will be more at risk of developing cervical cancer if you smoke, have more than one sexual partner, and have high-risk HPV among other things.

How do I treat Cervical Cancer?

Alternative treatments should be done in conjunction with traditional medicine in order to boost your chances of defeating cancer.

  • Watch out for dehydration and make sure you are getting plenty of fluids.
  • If you’re nauseated by cancer treatments, go ahead and have a little ginger candy or tea to help settle your stomach. Don’t like ginger? Try peppermint.
  • Make sure you’re getting enough sleep. Sleep gives the body a chance to turn up it’s infection fighting abilities because it’s not busy doing the things it does while you’re awake.
  • Remove caffeinated drinks from your diet to help control urinary problems.
  • If you suffer from hair loss try using milder shampoos and steering clear of products that could irritate the scalp.
  • Try out a ‘pescatarian’ diet high in fish and low-glycemic index foods, little fat and little dairy.
  • Try inserting green tea capsules into the vagina to help fight off the abnormal cells.
  • Eat more cruciferous veggies such as broccoli as they have a cancer fighting compound in them.
  • Eat berries! They have antioxidants and phytonutrients that help to defeat cancer and other troublesome things like free radicals.
  • Consider acupuncture, massage or chiropractic to help get your body realigned and thinking positively.
  • Lower stress with mind-body techniques such as meditation.
  • Turmeric can help to reduce cervical inflammation, destroy HPV and even reduce symptoms.
  • Vitamin A and vitamin B-2 help to protect the cervix and prevent precancerous cells from developing.
