Conventional Treatments for Dysplasia
Women with all types of dysplasia and high-risk HPV may be advised to undergo Cyrotherapy, LEEP (Loop electrosurgical excision procedure), or Cone Biopsy to remove areas of cervical change and precancerous cells..
If the dysplasia is mild, a woman may be advised to have repeat Pap tests at more frequent intervals (every 3-6 months) to monitor the presence of HPV and degree of dysplasia, in the hopes that both will improve or disappear, as it often does for women in their teens and twenties.
Complementary Alternative Treatments for Dysplasia
Rather than wait passively, many women prefer to take steps to increase the probability that their own immune system will be able to suppress HPV, and to use complementary alternative remedies to promote healing.
Alternative cervical dysplasia treatments have four components
Avoidance of causative and aggravating factors such as inflammatory foods, tobacco, oral contraceptives, unprotected sex
Stimulating and strengthening core bodily functions, especially immune response and tissue repair through nutrition, supplements,vitamins, herbs, homeopathic and holistic agents, exercise
Fostering a healing environment through the correction of overgrowths, infections (i.e. yeast, bacteria) and imbalances (i.e. pH, hormones) through oral and vaginal medications, vitamins and herbs.
Removal of pre-cancerous lesions by surgery or through Escharotic Therapy : the application of a solution made with Bloodroot and other herbs at regular intervals (i.e. every week for 12 weeks.
What is HPV (Human Papilloma Virus?
HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States. HPV is so common that nearly all sexually active men and women get it at some point in their lives.
In most cases, HPV goes away on its own and does not cause any health problems. But when HPV does not go away, it can cause health problems like genital warts and cancer.
You can get HPV by having vaginal, anal, or oral sex with someone who has the virus. It is most commonly spread during vaginal or anal sex. HPV can be passed even when an infected person has no signs or symptoms. Anyone who is sexually active can get HPV, even if you have had sex with only one person. You also can develop symptoms years after you have sex with someone who is infected making it hard to know when you first became infected.
What is Dysplasia?
Cervical dysplasia refers to potentially pre-cancerous changes that may be found on the cervix by a Pap test. Strongly associated with the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), cervical dysplasia affects women of all age groups and is graded on a scale, indicating Low-grade (ASCUS, CIN I) or High-grade (CIN II, CIN III, CIS).
When dysplasia is detected through a woman’s Pap test she is often sent for a colposcopy (cervical biopsy) to define the cause and extent of dysplasia. The Pap results, the colposcopy results, her history and her practitioner’s treatment preference will determine the treatments that are recommended.
