Abnormal Paps/Cervical dysplasia

Vitalia’s Approach to Abnormal paps (Cervical Dysplasia)

Cervical Dysplasia is when abnormal cells or precancerous cells are developing on the cervix.  This is detected during a women’s pap exam and can vary from low to high grade.  Women with a history of smoking or long term use of the birth control pill are at a higher risk of developing this condition.  Certain sexually transmitted viruses like HPV (human papilloma virus), and HSV (herpes simplex virus) increase a woman’s risk of developing cervical dysplasia as well.

Naturopathic medicine can be very effective in treating mild and moderate cervical dysplasia. An anti-inflammatory, vegetable and fiber rich diet has been shown in research to support the health of the cervix and improve hormonal balance.  If HPV is present, we may use specific natural remedies that are anti-viral and improve the immune system.  At Vitalia, we customize a wellness plan for our patients using diet and nutritional advice, herbal medicines and homeopathic medicines.  Call us today to get started!
