View Full Version : Cervical polyp
07-08-2009, 11:58 AM
I am 39 y.o., 70-80% raw fooder. I drink fresh squeezed juices, eat fruits and GS, but I fell off 100% raw wagon some time ago . Now I am vegan. Being vegan is easy for me, but getting back on totally raw diet is difficult.
I just came back from a doctor. They found a pretty big - like half a thumb polyp in my cervix. Doctor wants to remove it. (I have yeast infection too). I don't have children, I hope to have them one day, this is not off the table yet. I am not sure what to do.
Please, anyone who had similar problem - share your thoughts with me!
Has anyone had success of losing a polyp naturaly?
Or should I remove it and follow up with some special regimen?

I used to have them but never did anything about them. Later I had a Hystorectomy at 38........just because the Dr. suggested it also I regret today being a LOT Smarter but I already had 2 children. The Polyp are suppose to be like a grape on a stem.

I might go with your last suggestion. Remove it and follow up with a 100% raw diet in an effort to prevent further problems. BUT, I'm curious why the Doctor did not biopsy it first.
Is removing it something you can have done in the Doctor's office or would it be considered surgery and require anethesia?
Asking questions is the best thing you can do. Doctors only tell you what they think you need to know, which is usually very little. Research it yourself. Don't be afraid to ask the Doctor questions. Lots of questions! You must be your own best advocate.

jump onto a 100% Raw diet and maybe get a second opinion? Times are tough. Docs are feeling the (not-so-good) economy too... :eek: I'd go 100% Raw - way easier than surgery. Our bodies ARE very forgiving, and quickly healing.
just my opinion.

My VERY personal opinion: Go 100% raw, do fasts whenever you can, and stay as far away from doctors as humanly possible!

Cervical surgery can have MAJOR effects on integrity of the cervix and the normal physiology of the uterus during labour and birth. In my experience, the lack of continuity of care often means docs have no idea what the far reaching and long term effects of these procedures are (unless, of course, you are part of a study of some sort ;) )
So I would research like mad if I were you...and remember that as a woman at 39, most people in the medical community will not see that you really have much use for your reproductive organs anyway :rolleyes:
Sorry I don't have any links for you...maybe check out the huge forum at mothering.com for some links or advice? It would be very interesting to hear from women who have been in your place and may have chosen to opt out of surgery.
And oh yeah, I agree with EmmaT :)

Thank you everyone for sharing your thoughts and support. I'll definetely check out the mothering.com.
So far I've decided to go on 92 day juice fast. I've started on july 9, so this is my third day - so far so great. No cravings, very easy to do. The best part of it - i don't eat bread, which was sort of an addiction for me. I've read a lot about polyps on curezone- they have some very good suggestions. I'll do some more research and buy herbs for tea and washing So it will be juices and herbal teas all day. I'll try to have few days of pure water fast, maybe even dry fast with no water. Right now water fast would be almost impossible for me. Maybe one more week and I'll have my first day of water fast.
What to do with polyp - I've decided to wait couple of months. If I'll see the improvements with juices and herbs - i won't do it. If polyp still the same - i don't know....
I'll keep you updated - on what herbs i've decided to buy and how my juicing is going.
I know - doctors think women of 39 don't have much chances. This is too bad - every day i am reading about women in their sixties and even seventy becoming mothers.
