Alternative Treatments in Cervical Dysplasia and HPV by Dr. Rachel Erickson

Many women are getting scared by their abnormal PAP results and their doctors’ nonchalant responses of, “let’s retest in 3-6 months”. Another group of you are panicking because your doctor immediately wants you to get a colposcopy and a LEEP to solve the problem. 
In the medical community at large, “cutting it out” is a common practice when it comes to abnormal tissue. In my practice we have a lot more options. (This is true in general of most conditions)
A standard routine of care for a healthy female with cervical changes is a 3 pronged approach:
1.       Dietary changes to help rid viruses
2.       Supplements designed to help your body heal
3.       Suppositories to treat right at the source
Oftentimes there is nothing more that is needed and by their 3 month retest their PAP is clean!
And most importantly, education is key. So even if you are uncertain of what the right treatment option is for you, you can always get your questions answered in a safe environment by knowledgeable physicians. We look forward to your call!
