I got a call from my doctor today telling me that I have HPV and my pap test came back abnormal. She said that the cells were "low-grade," which is apparently as good as it gets when it comes to abnormal cells. Now I have to go in and have more tests done along with a biopsy of the cells. I was just wondering if any of you have had either of these problems and if raw helped at all. The sad part is that I'm less worried about the problems themselves and more worried about what the doctors are going to do and what meds they might want me to take! Since I'm away at school and I had my exam back home, I now have to find a new doctor here, which is making me a little nervous. Anyway, do you think there's any way raw could help me with this?
This is extremely common in young woman. I had it in my 20's (before I learned about nutrition and natural health). I knew more young woman that had it than did not (and those could have but did not tell). Years after I subjected myself to conventional treatment (laser), I learned that it can be reversed with nutrition, especially folic acid. Most health issues can be resolved with nutrition - wish I knew then what I know now - live and learn! I would have treated myself and then returned about 3 months later for a pap smear to confirm that it was working.
John Lee, MD, the guru of Natural Progesterone has successfully reversed cervical dysplasia back to normal by giving Natural Progesterone and folic acid (a type of B vitamin). Birth Control Pills cause a folic acid deficiency. He used this same method to reverse cervical dysplasia in his daughter in three cycles.
Several vitamin deficiencies may play a role in cervical dysplasia. A 1993 study of the links between diet and cervical dysplasia found a relationship between low folate, vitamin E, vitamin C and riboflavin intakes and the disease.1 http://www.vitamin-update.com/health...cfm/id/10.html
Alternative therapy includes eating a good quality diet with lots fresh whole foods, vitamin and mineral supplements including plenty of vitamins A & C and folic acid and herbal supplements which help to enhance the immune system. Topical treatments to the cervix in the form of suppositories and packs are effective to help return the cells to normal. http://www.eclecticphysician.com/arc...on=Nbr&Nbr=190
Hi.. I am 25 and was diagnosed in April with the "high grade" strain of this virus. Don't worry... no meds were ever suggested to me to take. They simply did a cervical biopsy to ensure that the were not cancerous (thank God the were not). My Dr. told me that it could clear on its own. That's when I went raw, and... it cleared! So hang in there and eat raw!!!
Anyone who believes a vaccination is needed to prevent/cure HPV is a fool. I'm sorry Ros, do your research before you post something like that on this board. Read the side affects of the HPV vaccine
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-501263_1...85-501263.html. And this is just the media news on the vaccine!!
Regardless of how you get the disease, it can be cured easily and without pharmacuticals by eating clean and as much raw as you can. The body has amazing abilities to heal itself if people will just give it a chance.
Where am I? And how did I get into this handbasket in the first place!!??

From the outset, let me state that I lack specialist knowledge on this particular topic.
However, I will just point out that whenever there is some viral infection in the body, gaining ground, it is relevant to consider immune function.
Therefore, in addition to nutrients (which do, of course, have a huge influence upon immune function - e.g. vitamins A, C, E etc. etc.), one should bear in mind that there are certain toxins which can powerfully suppress the immune system, the most prominent (but by no means only) example of which are heavy metals - especially mercury.
There are a surprising number of sources of potential exposure to heavy metals - so many that there are way too many to list here. But the classics are ethylmercury-preserved multi-dose-vialed vaccines, dental amalgam fillings, excessive seafood consumption etc.
If seriously pursuing this evenue of investigation, one would take into consideration a spectrum of other potential health symptoms, to build up a more richly-detailed picture, along with a detailed hair lab analysis.
So, this is just something to bear in mind, in seeking answers to your HPV situation.
