Girl’s Corner:The story of how I reversed cervical dysplasia, got rid of high risk HPV and candida.

February 21st, 2008 · 53 Comments

(originally posted Jan 2008) I have been trying to decide how to write up what I have been through for the past few months. I thought about writing a succinct page and calling it the “girls corner”. There is so much information in my head it is really overwhelming to try and write it all down on one page so I will be updating this often. I wanted to get something down in the meantime for those who were interested. (this post will always be available at the top of my blog under PAGES: Girl’s Corner).

It all started about 5 months ago on a Monday with a pap test. I bet you can’t find many stories that start like that. Now I know I have male readers including my dad so I will keep everything as guy friendly as possible. There won’t be anything shocking. I promise.

So, I digress, I went to a new gynecologist for my normal yearly appointment and didn’t suspect anything out of the ordinary. The only difference was I hadn’t been in 2 years (don’t wait girls, go every year) and I was going to a new doctor I didn’t know. I got the standard, “we’ll call you if there’s anything. If you don’t hear from us expect everything to be normal.” By Friday I had totally forgotten about it and around 5:30 my phone rang and it was the doctor himself! I thought wow, this new doctor really goes for the personal service and then it hit me, this can’t be good. My heart began to race. So he says, “Your test came back abnormal. There are some abnormal cells. I have no reason to believe it’s cancer but you need to come back in for a biopsy of your cervix. You also tested positive for high risk strains of HPV (the virus that causes cervical cancer)” That rings in my head, biopsy…never fun…. of my what? Oh no. I don’t think so. That really can’t be fun. I remembered when a friend of mine had that done and I had gone to see her. She was not a happy camper. I wanted to be a happy camper. A happy camper was one who didn’t get a phone call!

So about a month and half later (because that was the first appointment available) I took the day off work and went in for the “procedures”. I was scheduled to have a cloposcopy and if things looked bad a cervical curettage. Things were not good so I had both. Now let me back up a minute. For the previous month and a half I had googled and read forums until my eyes were so tired I could barely open them and I was more confused than ever about what I had, what to do, etc. I had an abnormal pap but what did that mean? Did I have cancer? Was I going to have to have a hysterectomy like the other women in my family? Did I inherit cervical cancer? Is it genetic? Can I have kids? And on and on and on…. All the questions were exhausting.

I had also read everything from the “procedures” being painless to excruciating depending on which post I was reading. Some women had no problem while others said they felt like it was the worst pain they ever felt except for childbirth. I really had no idea what to expect. The one thing I did know was I wasn’t buying the doctor’s cavalier “it’s no big deal” phrase that he had said one too many times to believe.

Let’s just say it hurts. A lot. Not screaming pain or even crying pain but it’s intense. Not to scare anyone who is about to do it but it does. Its also a very strange indescribable pain that I can only imagine is similar to childbirth or so the doctor, who loved saying “its no big deal” said afterwards. Helpful. Really helpful. Now you tell me. He and the nurse were shocked and said, “wow! You’re going to do great during labor!”. “It’s no big deal” and “you’ll do great during labor” so don’t go together!! I have to say it only hurt in the moment. It was quick and then it was over. So I went home, took lots of advil and went to sleep. Then it was more waiting….and waiting….and waiting for test results. It seemed like forever.

Finally over a week later I got a call, I had CIN 1 Type 3 dysplasia. These pictures are from Wikipedia for more information please see the site:

Normal cervical epithelium

CIN1

CIN 2

CIN 3

Now the thing about cervical dysplasia is it really is the best kind to have. It is supposedly not genetic and it is so slow growing you could wait years before you actually develop cancer. So I was in a great place. I didn’t have carcinoma incitu yet so I had time. That doesn’t really make you feel better though when you’ve been told you have something that will become cancer especially when there is a history of the women in my family having hysterectomies due to cervical cancer both at my exact age. Now the question was what were my treatment options? What do I do next?

So I call the doctor to discuss things. He explains how he would like to do cryosurgery, where they freeze the cervix with liquid nitrogen, and he’d like to do this as soon as possible. Yeahhhhh, I’m thinking ……not so much.

So I hit google again and read the forums. Every possible forum I can find. I try finding information about cryosurgery and what it’s like. Pros, cons, effectiveness, cure rate……etc. The answers were shocking to me. Not a cure. Highly effective in getting rid of abnormal cells but no guarantee they will stay gone and often times it comes back. Possible permanent alteration of the cervical landscape with the added bonus of jeopardizing the ability to get pregnant. Hard to control the tissue depth when freezing the abnormal cells and often times too much is done at too deep of a level or not enough is done. Watery shedding for 2 – 4months as the cervix recovers from the trauma. Months!!! As well as inability to accurately assess a biopsy in the future if it comes back. So…. I should do this…. why?

So I started looking into other options and there were a few. There was laser and there was what they call a Leep procedure. One is what it sounds like. They laser off the cells. In the Leep they do a loop biopsy where they cut them off with a heated knife. Now for the laser you have to be put under and I don’t react well to anesthesia so that was ruled out. Now the Leep has numerous problems. It is painful. You can take off too much of the cervix, which can cause problems with conceiving as well as carrying a baby to term. The only good thing is out of all the procedures it is the only one where you can actually take a sample to test in case you missed anything earlier. If you have a more progressed condition like Carcinoma Incitu they will want to do a cone biopsy and that also has similar complications to the Leep especially with conceiving and carrying a baby to term. So I read.

So I went back to my doctor and asked him all these questions and it went something like this:

Me: Couldn’t it go away on it’s own?
Dr.: 1/3 reverse, 1/3 progress, 1/3 stay the same

Me: Okay, well don’t I have time to see what happens?

Dr.: I can’t recommend that. I can only recommend that you go ahead with the procedure as soon as possible. (a.k.a. if I recommend not having the procedure you could develop cancer and sue me. I don’t want to be sued.)

Me: What happens if it comes back?

Dr.: Well my daughter’s came back and we just did it again.

Me: Isn’t it harder to tell the second time because the landscape has changed?

Dr.: Yes.

Me: If you do it again and have to keep doing it aren’t you really at risk for causing major problems with conceiving?

Dr.: There is no evidence of that. There are always risk with any procedure.

Me: What about the risks of changing the cervical landscape and the effects that could have on conceiving or childbearing?

Dr.: There are no such risks with cryotherapy. (I knew this was not true)

Me: How long will I have watery shedding and be uncomfortable?

Dr: Two weeks, maybe longer. (more like 4 months, which my current doctor confirmed)

Me: Okay, well what about a different procedure?

Dr.: Sure, I can do those but they will both require anesthesia and will take place in a hospital.

Me: Okay, well what do you think I should do?

Dr: Cryotherapy. It’s no big deal. (I had heard this phrase before)

Me: Okay, I’ll call you back! (I just wasn’t buying it. Somewhere deep down just said no, this is not the way)

I thought to myself, no big deal? No big deal!!!? Let’s see him put his “you know what” in liquid nitrogen and say “it’s no big deal”. I bet he’d think that was a PRETTY BIG DEAL!! What he meant was my procedure was no big deal for him.

So I hit google and the forums AGAIN! There were tons and tons of posts from women who were also confused who were in the same boat as me. Faced with these decisions and being told to do things that just didn’t feel necessary or make sense. I did searches for everything. I started researching alternatives and everything I could possibly read. I read books. I read blogs. I read everything. I read about beta-carotene deficiency and folic acid deficiency but nothing on reversing it. Then I found it. I googled “reverse cervical dysplasia”. That’s when I found a forum where a girl wrote about how her doctor’s recommendation of large amounts of folic acid, beta-carotene, herbal treatments, as well as dietary changes had worked for her.

That was it for me. That was the turning point where I could do something. I could give in and do what was conventional or I could listen to my gut and do what I knew was right for me. I listened to my gut and in that moment I became the ambassador of my own health. It was time to find a new doctor!

I had also suspected for quite some time that I had Candida. I recently had been sick and had it so bad that I had thrush in my throat. My throat and tongue were white. Covered in white. My other doctor (who is also no longer my doctor for obvious reasons) put me on Diflucan for a few days as well as antibiotics and called it a day. I said, I think I have Candida and this is all related. Diflucan for a few days isn’t going to solve anything. It’s just going to come back. It came back. He gave me more Diflucan for a few days. I never went back. The Candida, the dysplasia, everything, I knew it was connected. I was a healthy person. I ate well. I was slim. I had no reason to be so sick. He didn’t believe in my theory. It was time to find TWO new doctors.

I hit the web to look for holistic health. I was inspired by my mom who had kept my dad off insulin and controlled his diabetes through diet. I also had a good knowledge base in science from pursuing a biology degree at UCSC. I was armed and now I just needed someone who believed in me. My mom gave me a book called The Dries Cancer Diet which stresses food combing for alkaline balance with a strong emphasis on fruit. Dries was a great start and I attempted his diet for a month. I still didn’t feel good though and hadn’t found a doctor. Then I read an article on Yeast from Dr. Nan Fuchs and I emailed her. She was kind enough to reply and recommend the Watson Wellness Center and I found my new doctor. So as I waited to see my new doctor I started researching the Acid Alkaline Balance and I came across pH Ion. I also made an appointment with my old doctor at Cedars Sinai whom I loved and was now sorry I had ever left, Dr. Serden.

While I waited to see my doctors, I ordered some pH test strips to see how acidic my body was. I realized if I had Candida then the Cancer Diet Dries suggests wouldn’t work on me, as the sugar from the fruit would make my body too acidic. The fruit would feed the Candida and the acidity in my body would keep my body out of balance. So I waited for my strips to come to see if I was right. If my body was acidic than I was on to something. Sure enough they came and I found my body was in the seriously acidic range.

Then coincidence, luck, call it what you will, I turned on the TV and there was this show called Crazy Sexy Cancer. I was immediately sucked in. Kris Carr looked just like me. She is cute, spunky, young and full of questions for which we had no answers. This was her journey to find them out and for me to find out as I watched. I couldn’t believe it. She was asking all the same questions I was. My theory was right!! Acidity plays a huge role. I watched as she saw doctor after doctor and learned about the raw food diet. She drank green drinks that looked awful and craved toast with butter so badly she even ate some. I watched as Kris was able to stabilize her cancer and heal her body. The great thing about the raw food diet theory was that as long as I cut out fruit it should heal both dysplasia and Candida, which I realized were feeding each other. Candida made my body acidic and that was an environment where cells would grow irregularly into cancer. So, I became a raw vegan (except I eat fish). My diet most closely resembles that of Natalie Rose. I love her book and highly recommend it. I also read every book out there but my most favorites and ones I recommend to everyone are above and foremost, THE CHINA STUDY by T. Colin Campbell and Thomas M. Campbell II, The Body Ecology Diet by Donna Gates and THE RAW FOOD DETOX DIET by Natalie Rose. (EVERYONE SHOULD READ THE CHINA STUDY and THE RAW FOOD DETOX DIET even if you’re perfectly healthy) .
So I went to my new doctors and to my amazement they believed in everything I said. Watson and Serden were wonderful and very supportive of my plan! Even though they had different practices and specialized in different things, they had no problem with my desire to work with both of them simultaneously. I found that worked well for me. We started a whole new plan that I have outlined below. Dr. Watson put me on an herbal supplement routine, folic acid, monolaurin, vitamin suppositories, etc. while Dr. Serden monitored my progress and did my testing. It was wonderfully comforting to have them both.

You can see what I eat and don’t eat on my Bueller’s Diet page at the top of this blog. I will add what my specific anti-cancer diet was. I drank 2 – three glasses of green juice a day (I like Essential Greens from Trader Joe’s because it doesn’t have sugar or fruit juice).

What I did to reverse dysplasia and get rid of my high risk HPV (which was gone after 5 months):

5 mg of Folic Acid (note this dosage is not mcg it is mg which is a much higher dose) 1 a day (Ortho Molecular Folic Acid)

B12 supplement 1 a day (Solary B12 5000 mcg lozenge)

Multi-Vitamim 1 a day (Innerlight Mega-Vitamin)

VRL Detox (to fight HPV and Epstein Barr which I have both) 1 capsule 2 times daily

Monolaurin (for the Epstein Barr and our new theory since it’s antiviral for the HPV) 1-2 caps 2-3 times a day

Vitamin C – 1,000mg-4,000mg (buffered or Ester C) a day – I took 4,000mg a day and split it up so that I took 2,000 in the morning and 2 (I did take this then but I now take Metagenics Ultra Potent-C 1000mg tabs – 4 tabs a day)

Medicinal Mushrooms (Host Defense)

Suppositories:
I was told by Vitanica that they are reformulating the suppositories and thus are temporarily out of stock. They will be ready in 2-3 months (the date of this post is 9/2/08 for reference) and they will then be sold through doctors. You can reach them at, info@vitanica.com, for any questions. I do not have suggestions for alternatives and ask that you please discuss that with your doctor as I am not legally able to give advice.

This is what I used:

Week 1:Vitanica Vitamin A for 6 days (1 suppository each day for Days 1-6) Ingredients: Vitamin A (as Palmitate) 200,000iu and Vitamin E in polybase.

Similar but not the same as Wise Woman suppositories.

Day 7: Vitanica VagPack suppository (2 suppositories on Day 7) Ingredients: Anhyrdous magnesium sulfate, glycerin complex, hydratsis tincture, thuja oil, tea tree oil, bitter orange oil, vitamin-a (as palmitate) 100,000 iu, ferric sulfate, ferrous sulfate in polybase.


Week 2:
Vitanica Papillo suppositories for 6 days (1 suppository each day for Days 8-14) Ingredients: Ingredients:Vitamin A (palmitate), lomatium isolate, oil of Thuja and citricidal (grape fruit seed extract) in polybase.

Day 15: Vag Pack suppositories (2 suppositories on Day 15)

One week off and then repeat cycle. I was told if I had my period anytime during this to just stop and start up where I left off.

I had to repeat for 8 weeks, then take a month off and then repeat pap or biopsy.

Green Smoothie every morning and evening with Miracle Greens (aka Macro Greens)

Essential Greens about 2 -3 a day (even better to juice my own if I could)

Matcha (Green Tea)

They are finding new things out every day. I just read yesterday on this website Herb Net about a clinical trial using Retin A to treat cervical dysplasia:

Preliminary trials of the prescription vitamin A derivative retinoic acid (Retin-A®) applied topically to the cervix show complete regression in about 45 percent of patients treated with higher concentrations (0.1583 to 0.484 percent) of retinoic acid.8

All the above suppositories were designed for Vitanica by Dr. Tori Hudson. She also claims green tea suppositories work well at reversing dysplasia and cancer which she offers on her site. I used them for awhile before I found Dr. Watson and they were great.

For Candida (I will be doing this for 1 year):

Bueller’s Diet

Digestive Enzymes

Prebiotics and Probiotics

Acid Drainage

Antioxidants

AlkaLife – pH drops for water to make it alkaline

Alkalive Green – for when I didn’t have green juice

Candex

Alkalizing Minerals

pH Quintessence

Sole (Himalayan Sea Salt)

Lemon Water (just water with 2 lemons for when my pH tested really acidic)

Also I took Diflucan for 1 month at the beginning.

Green Smoothie every morning and evening with Miracle Greens.

Essential Greens about 2 -3 a day.

I am thrilled to say that after just 3 months my pap is NORMAL!!! The cervical landscape is clean. My candida is gone. I am thrilled to say that now just 2 months after the dysplasia cleared up I got the news that the high risk Human Pappillomavirus is gone for good. It no longer exists in my body.

I make sure to remember every time I step in a doctors office that the only person who is going to look out for me is me. I am the ambassador of my own health and I choose what’s best for me.

I highly recommend Dr. Tori Hudson’s book:

Women’s Encylopedia of Natural Medicine: Alternative Therapies and Integrative Medicine for Total Health and Wellness by Tori Hudson

This is an awesome resource and she has a whole chapter on how to treat cervical cancer holistically. I highly recommend it.

Please understand my policy that I will not reply to emails or comments about what someone should do or how much of each supplement to take, or anything that applies to someone’s own treatment. I am not a doctor and I legally can not advise my readers. All I can do is answer questions about what I did that worked for me or point you in the right direction for other research resources. Thank you for understanding. Be well!

I will say though: girls get your pap every year!!

As a reminder, always consult your doctor for medical advice and treatment before starting any program.

UPDATE
The HPV came back but only for a month. Here’s another post on what I did the second time:

    This post is so interesting, I am going to have to re-read it in closer detail when I get home tonight. You are so right on about the going to get your yearly exam each and every year!!! I have had 2 episodes of cervical dysplasia. Nowadays, dr’s seem to be telling everyone that you get it from HPV – well the first time I got this I had yet to be sexually active, and in the 20 years since have not had HPV.
    thanks for posting this info, and can’t wait to re-read it.

  • 7 RD // Feb 28, 2008 at 10:34 pm

    Hi does anyone know any doctors in the San Francisco bay area region that could help me cure my candida problems. I have been to so many doctors its becoming so hopeless for me =(

  • 8 Michelle S. // Mar 24, 2008 at 9:31 am

    Thank you so much for this wonderful blog. I was diagnosed with CIN 3 recently and the dr. wants to perform a LEEP but I’m holding off. Just as I was reading your blog my boyfriend brought a book to me (the Body Ecology Diet, which you mention) and after reading a few pages I realized that I think I have candida as well! It’s really a small miracle to have come across your blog and that book within minutes of each other. I’m going to start a new diet, how long do you recommend waiting for my next colpo? I was going to try to have it done in 2 months (my last was a month ago). Thank for your wonderful blog, I’m so happy to read this information and read your words of wisdom and support!

  • 9 admin // Mar 24, 2008 at 2:15 pm

    Thanks Michelle S. I’m so glad! I couldn’t possibly recommend when you should see your doctor again. That is completely up to you. In my situation I go every 3 months.

    I love this book as well, The Acid-Alkaline Diet for Optimum Health: Restore Your Health by Creating Balance in Your Diet (Paperback)
    by Christopher Vasey
    And found it to be very helpful in understanding how pH affects the body.
    Best of luck! Stay in touch and check in often. I just posted something today on how eating more veggies can get rid of HPV. I’ll be posting later in the week about my nutritional findings. Apparently a green smoothie is the Vitamin A bomb. Vitamin A is key to getting rid of dysplasia.

    Sounds like you have a good man in your life! Good on him!! Congrats too on being proactive! Good for you for learning everything you can!

    I should also say I never had a second colpo. I had a second pap at 3 months and it was fine. I’m at my next 3 month date this month so I’ll test again. My doctors didn’t feel it was necessary to do another colpo. Every doctor is different though as is every patient. That was just my decision.

    Keep me posted! I love updates no matter how small.
    Best

    Thank you for posting so much useful things. unfortunately, i haven’t seen your blog before dr. did me conisation. i’ve been diagnosed cin 3 with HPV. i had a surgery month and a half ago. i’m only 25, didn’t have any kids, so i can see that i was so naive for not even trying to do anythingh else than a surgery. i was so scared after hearing about my diagnosis and didn’t have much choice at the time. now i’m doing relatively well, having painful periods (my periods weren’t so much painful before the surgery). i guess it needs time to normalize. i’m aware that only with strong immune system i can fight against my cin and HPV. i stopped smoking and i’m eating now more of ‘healthy’ foods. i don’t have much knowledge about food i should avoid because of that, so i’m eating all kinds of vegatables (mostly greens) and fruits (oranges, bananas, apples, strawberrys). i’m also drinking soyamilk, taking spirulina and tahitian noni and aloe vera juice. is there anything i should avoid? thank you for everything

  • 11 admin // May 28, 2008 at 9:10 am

    Hi Vera:

    You can see under Bueller’s Diet for what I eat and don’t eat. Lots of leafy greens and checking your body’s pH are the most important things to me. I wish you all the best!!

  • 12 Christina // May 29, 2008 at 7:59 pm

    Such a valuable post! Thanks!

    I am disappointed that you recommend the vaccine at the end though! That kind of goes against the theme of the post. Many aren’t even aware of the risks or the experimental nature of gardasil. The reactions mentioned in the following link (according to a non-public article from same magazine) range from quakes, seizures and coma, to Guillain-Barre Syndrome and death. Yes, death.

    Bueller-
    I am so happy I found this website. I wish I would of found it a few months ago. I too was diagnosed with HPV however mine is more severe. I have Mild to Moderate dysplasia also known as CIN II. My doctor wanted me to follow up with a LEEP procedure, after I already had a colposcopy and after reading all online information I decided I will fix it on my own! I’ve adjusted my diet accordingly but I am having a very hard time excluding dairy from my diet. I am also on a very strict budget so it is very hard for me to follow a perfect diet. But I know that I am worth every penny I spend! Do you have any budget friendly recipes or any suggestions to help me? Any information would be greatly appreciated! My follow up pap is exactly one month and one week away… but who’s counting :) Thanks again for taking time and spreading all of this wonderful information. I really enjoyed reading it!

  • 15 admin // Jun 9, 2008 at 8:13 pm

    Hi Kim:

    Good for you for taking control. I can’t say what will work for anyone else. The biggest things for me was my morning green smoothie. It has such a mega dose of vitamin K because of the spinach and vitamin A that it is great for dysplasia which is thought to be partially caused by a deficiency in both as well as HPV of course. Also, the Monolaurin was very important I believe in getting rid of my HPV (see the end of my post). I use Almond Milk as a replacement for all my dairy and you can’t tell the difference. Getting rid of dairy helped too I think. Green smoothie 2 times a day though I think was my “green bomb” as well as green salads and soups.

    Read here for the HPV superfoods:

    Keep me posted. All the best.

    Bueller- Where do I start? I am SO thankful I found your website. I have been battling cervical dysplasia for about two years now. I’ve had two leeps and after the last time, my OBGYN referred me to an oncologist. Needless to say, I was frightened out of my mind. The oncologist examined me and determined that one month after the leep was too soon to see how everything was doing, and that he thinks the last leep removed all the precancerous cells even though they came back CIN III. He wanted to see me back in two months (which will be the end of September). I took this as my second chance. I will cure myself naturally.

    I have been doing everything you did here, except for the Vitamin A suppositories and the VagPak, as they are out of stock right now/I can’t find them. I have been using 25,000 IU of vitamin a as a suppository every day. Do you think that will be enough?

    I am in love with the green smoothies. I attribute my good mood and overall well being to them! I’ve been trying to eat a raw vegan diet, but sometimes I cheat a little. :) I am really hoping that when I go back in September that I will be 100% cured. I can’t tell you how much you have changed my life and given me hope. I just wanted to say thank you so much!

    I was going to email you but I couldn’t find your email. :)

  • 17 HappyChick // Aug 8, 2008 at 9:43 am

    Hi Bueller,

    I just started the same protocol after seeing Dr. Watson. Though I am a bit concerned about the high intake of folic acid. She wants me to take 10mg a day (which I think it way too much). I am thinking about taking 5mg, but I am reading online how that might be too much as well. Did you ever do any research on it? Did you feel ok taking 5mg a day? I am assuming for 3 months?

    Thanks and love your site! : )

  • 18 admin // Aug 8, 2008 at 9:49 am

    I was fine with it. Yes I researched it like crazy. All my other doctors said it was fine too. I took it for over that and haven’t had a problem. Watson is great! Folic acid is so crucial in the reversal of dysplasia and she is so successful with her protocal I followed what she said exactly. I’m sure she has her reasons for her dosage. If you have concerns you should talk to her again. All the best!

    Be well!

    Thank you so much for this great information. I live in Canada, Toronto specifically and looking for a doctor who can help with this issue. I have been a fan of holistic medicine for years, and this is not a far stretch from what I already do. I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction in terms of doctors/naturopaths. Also, I was wondering what you are on now for maintanence, in order to prevent the virus from once again affecting your cervical tissues? Thanks so much for your response and continued good health

    Hi Michelle,

    Just wondering how everything went.

    Hi Balanced
    So nice to get your lovely note. In regards to finding a doctor in Canada I don't really know how to go about it. I would suggest you join my.crazysexylife.com and join the group I started there for cervical cancer and dysplasia, I believe there are some Canadians that may have some resources. As far as protecting myself in the future from a re-occurence as long as I am not re-exposed it won't come back. It is not being harbored in my body. It's gone according to my doctors. I get a pap every 6 months as a follow up. I also have changed my way of living forever. I love my new diet and way of life. It doesn't interest me to go back to how I was eating. I don't eat many of things I used to eat, I'm a vegan and I eat mostly plants.

    Hope that helps. Best of luck!

    Thank you for your response. I also do not believe in butchering woman….as they so often do, telling us that it is 'no big deal'. I have been making the green shakes as you suggested, and juicing quite a bit. I am still trying to figure out how to balance my day with the proper foods. I usually have a shake, vegan based in the morning, and am now also making 2 green shakes a day with Kale, Spinach and the like. I am on the thinner side, so concerned that I may feel weak, and find that I am often lightheaded or dizzy. I will be getting some blood tests, to check iron levels and the like, but wondering how you plan your day. I am grateful that there are people like you who do not go the orthodox route and take control of their own health. If this is HPV, then my concern is why my body has not been able to fight it, and what I can do to assist it. I also want to have children soon and am frightened at the thought of having my cervix burned, frozen or lighted with electrical current. I will be looking into the products you suggested and hoping to be able to order them in Canada. I have tried the Yeast Arrest and found it interesting that my pap came back normal during that time and then went back to abnormal after i stopped.

    Thanks so much!

    Hi Balanced
    I just have to say for legal reasons my post is not a recommendation about what to do It's simply what I did. It sounds to me like you are asking all the right questions. Just keep asking them and you will find the right way for you. I just started menu monday's again which gives an idea what I eat now. However, that said it is not what or how I ate when I was healing. Those foods are listed under Bueller's Diet on my blog at the top right. I didn't eat grain or carbs and absolutely no sugar (honey, sweet fruit, etc.). I was sure the candida and cervical issues were connected. I don't have candida anymore so I eat things like pancakes, honey, etc. like that I mention on my blog now. I am on the skinny side so make sure to eat enough. This balance is different for everyone. I snack on almonds, I put an avocado in my smoothies, and I eat HUGE salads. Sometimes dizziness is a sign of adrenals so that's something I looked into that really helped me. I had Adrenal Fatigue.

    Good luck!

    Thank you so much for this blog and information about dysplasia. I had an abnormal pap test a yr back, and am now trying to clear it up through prayer, meditation and healthier living.

    While I find it impossible to go completely raw, I do know that even 50% raw is better than the normal SAD. Above all, be positive.

    Recently I came across the power of B17 to cure cancer. According to one doctor who was involved in the study of this vitamin – 'the cancer cells dropped like flies when we bathed them in Laetrile (B17)'. But it seems the FDA refuses to recognise its efficacy, and even terms it as dangerous because B17 is associated with cyanide. Apricot seeds and apple pips are rich in B17.

    Hi, I am currently battling cervical dysplasia. I have moderate cervical dysplasia. I have went to see a onocologist and she insisted I get the cone biopsy. I have already had the Leep and do not want to put my cervix through anything else. I am only 22 years old and have not had children yet. I look at your website and your story as my inspiration to get rid of this naturally. Since then I have switched gyn's and am currently looking for a Natural doctor that can help me. My body is really acidic and I have stopped eating meat and stopped taking my Birth control. Do you have any other advice? I'm determined to get rid of this on my own. Thanks!

    Thank you for the very informative article. I was also diagnosed with cervical dysplasia based on the smear test conducted in May 2009. When I received my results three weeks later, the letter stated I have CIN II. It was a very stressful experience accompanied by frustration, anger and feelings of helplessness. Nevertheless, I did an extensive research on CD and cervical cancer and started with raw food diet and food supplements immediately. In particular, I was eating lots of broccoli, cabbage, spinach, tomatoes, peppers, folic acid and B-complex and the mushroom extract known as Coriolus, I also put castor oil packs on my lower abdomen almost every day for an hour. Last but not least, I tried a strong tea tree oil vaginal suppository once as advised by a naturopath.

    In the end of July, two months after the initial smear test, I attended colposcopy examination. The vinegar solution revealed a white spot taking about 1/3 of my cervix. Then the nurse performed punch biopsy. To my great surprise, she was ready to remove the unhealthy tissue, but I refused the offer relying on the holistic naturopathic path and hoping that time and the change of my lifestyle would help.

    Due to my doctor’s vacation, I did not get hold of the biopsy results until early September. I could not believe when I received a call from the clinic informing me that their colposcopy multidisciplinary team meeting was held during which they came to the conclusion that my smear was not assessed accurately and that the biopsy findings corresponded with a non-specific inflammation at the level of borderline changes. I am still not sure whether it was the UK Health System or my body’s ability to heal quickly. All I know is that I have started to respect my body more and started avoiding men with a questionable past. I believe it was a very useful lesson as also my priorities have changed.

    Since my last posting, I have seen a naturopath and I have cleared my moderate cervical dysplasia. My last test showed I had moderate to severe dysplasia in my cervical canal.The onocologist wanted to perform a cone biopsy. I was againest this. I have since changed my diet and have taken many supplements and cut back on caffine and sugar. I am also a treatment plan with my doctor. So to all of you that are scared or don't know what to do, it is possible to get rid of it on your own!! Don't listen to the doctor when they tell you there is nothing else you can do but get it cut out!

    I have also been diagnosed with moderate cervical dysplasia, did the leap procedure as the gyno recommended and no change, pap still came back abnormal, so now gyno is telling me to do another biopsy(i have done 2 before already). and this whole time I have been taking oral contraceptives and thought maybe they can be the cause for my abnormal paps. But take them for my acne problem not for prevention purposes. I am not sexually active anymore after my first partner, since i got the HPV from him, so there is no need for birthcontrols for me other than to clear my skin.Do you think birth controls can be in the way of trying to cure dysplasia?
    thanks!

  • 46 bueller // Oct 29, 2009 at 8:12 pm

    Aleena1586:
    There is reason to believe birth control pills wipe out that good bacteria in the gut which may lead to candida and possibly a greater risk to getting the HPV virus due to a compromised immune system. That's just what I have gathered from my research but it is linked or suggested as a cause in many articles and posts I have read.

    Thanks so much for all this. It is the affirmation I have been needing to follow my intuition and not have a leep procedure for my CIN3 diagnosis. This helps to give me focus and excitement for the opportunity to get healthier. I have one question that I cant seem to get a straight answer for and that is the issue of sex. Should I abstain from sex with my long term male partner, should we use condoms only, are we going to keep passing this back and forth, should he assume he has HPV too and go through a protocol to heal it? Any ideas of links would be really great. Thanks so much

  • 52 bueller // Mar 14, 2010 at 5:04 pm

    I can't give any advice. All I can tell you is when I was diagnosed I was told to abstain until I was clear as to not pass it back and forth. I didn't have a partner at the time but I was told if I did it wouldn't hurt for him to do the same protocal (sans suppositories of course) as it would help him clear the virus too. That's what I was told. Legally I can't advise you. Best! Bueller.

    This is wonderful. My sister was recently diagnosed with Herpes, and has been feeling helpless. I refuse to believe it cannot be cured, and I will be doing more research. Your diet information is invaluable. Have you heard any information connected to Herpes? HPV and Herpes are so rarely discussed and information is so limited. Thank you again.
