Cervical Dysplasia

The American College of Pathology states that four out of five women who die of cervical cancer have not had a PAP smear in the previous five years. According to Health Canada, the highest incidence of cervical cancer and the highest death rates occur in women over the age of 65, a group that often stops having annual PAP tests. PAP smears save lives by discovering abnormal cells, called cervical dysplasia, early enough to prevent loss of life from cervical cancer. Every adult woman from the age of 18 should have an annual PAP test to ensure her cervix is healthy – but what can be done when the test comes back abnormal?

Symptoms

There are no symptoms until invasive cervical cancer makes itself apparent. This is why an annual PAP test is necessary.

Causes

We know that the main risk factors that promote abnormal cervical cells include: greater number of sexual partners, increasing age, infection with the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) (the virus that also causes warts), smoking, oral contraceptive use and nutritional deficiencies of folic acid, vitamin A and vitamin C.

We definitely do not want to ignore abnormal PAP tests. Too many women are advised they have an abnormal test result, and told to come back in six months for another test but are not given any suggestions for how to get their cervical cells to return to normal. Yes, some abnormal cells return to normal with no treatment, but what if simply taking a nutritional supplement containing indole-3-carbinol, calcium d-glucarate and sulforaphane along with vitamin A, C and folate could ensure a normal PAP test? Every woman I know would take a multivitamin with minerals to help those cells revert to healthy cells.

We know that HPV is implicated in the majority of cervical dysplasia and cervical cancer cases. New research has shown that a nutrient called indole-3-carbinol (I3C) can reverse abnormal cervical lesions before they have a chance to develop into cancer. In one study, 30 women with CINII and CINIII cervical lesions took 200 mg of I3C daily. Fifty percent in the treatment group had complete regression of their lesions. None of the placebo group had complete regression of their lesions. Indole-3-carbinol is available in ESTROsmart in the dosages used in the study to reverse abnormal cells. ESTROsmart also contains other nutrients, including calcium d-glucarate, rosemary containing carnosic acid, di-indolylmethane (DIM), sulforaphane, turmeric and green tea – all researched to help prevent female cancers and keep our estrogens from converting to cancer-causing estrogens. So you get the benefit of returning abnormal PAP tests to normal while helping to prevent female cancers.
