Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Message Board

Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index

Cervaplexx is a dietary supplement by Pharmogenex. It is simply 400 mg of Indole-3-Carbional which is the good stuff you also get from brocolli and other leafy green vegetables. This compound has been shown to help with cervical health and the avoidance of many cancers as well. There are other brands of Indole-3-Carbinal - any of them are probably fine. I'm not on the pill and from what I've read, being on that can increase cervical cancer risk so I'd try to find another form of b.c. if possible. Also - I was on a very high dose of folic acid. Not mcg but mg's! I was on 10 mgs per day - so it was prescription only and even then the pharmicist wanted to talk to my doctor. Yes, the vitamin A and the folic acid need to be watched and that's why you want your doctor on your side and involved in your treatment. If you suggest this treatment to your doctor and they don't like your suggestions - FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR! There is no reason to have invasive procedures done if you can use vitamins and minerals to accomplish the reversal of dysplasia!!!
You DEFINITELY need to find a doctor to guide you through this. You can't even get the high dose of folic acid without a prescription. Your doctor should be able to guide you through whether the BC pills are causing problems and perhaps check your hormone levels. Natural hormone replacement (NOT the stuff the pharmacutical companies sell!) may help with your periods but that's something your doctor could tell you. I would look for a doctor who knows about natural hormone replacement because they would be more likely to know about natural ways to treat cervical dysplasia. I am not recommending anyone try anything without their doctor behind them! The natural cotton tampons I found at a health food store called Vitamin Cottage. Just call around to various stores. I didn't realize the commercial ones had bleach in them and there are pesticides used on the cotton that go into them. Natural ones are more expensive though.
Hi all,

I'm new to these boards and just had a LEEP for severe dysplasia, but since this was my first experience with dysplasia I didn't know much about it at all, let alone natural healing for it - I really wish I had, so I could have tried a natural approach first! 88Shadow, the regimen your doctor had you on is very similar to what Dr. Andrew Weil suggests for women with cervical dysplasia - I'm having trouble posting the link, but go to dr weil .com-->health centers-->Women's Health and click on "cervical dysplasia" for his recommendation.

Where are you, and have you asked your doctor if s/he practices "integrative medicine"? I only recently had heard about Dr. Weil, but he's written several books on the subject - basically his philosophy is that "conventional" medicine has focused too much on scientific advances in the 20th century and has almost dismissed all other forms of therapy (i.e. herbal supplements, hypnotherapy, other cultures' forms of medicine, etc.).

What does everyone think about this?

P.S. I know on the site he suggests "taking my antioxidant formula", but he really isn't so much self promoting - he explains what vitamins and in what amounts he suggests in his books - he just also does have his own line of supplements.
I know stress is supposed to make things worse and I'm a bit worried that even with this regimen, my pap won't be normal. My sister was recently diagnosed with terminal liver cancer and a week ago they told us she only has weeks left to live. I had to move her into my home yesterday because she was so confused she wasn't taking her meds and today she is completely delirious. She's under hospice care but it is all very, very stressful. My kids are taking it better than I am. I'm afraid if they call with an abnormal pap result, I might just fall apart as I just don't need that right now! Then again, having my sister dying has put my own health problems in perspective. Cervical dysplasia is not the worst thing that can happen to us!
Thanks Duckeeduck! My doc recommended I keep taking the Life Extension Mix that I'm using which has a lot of good stuff in it. I checked and it has 800 mcg of Folic Acid which isn't as high as the 2 mg but hopefully it'll help. I was on 10 mgs a day for three months while on the regimen my doctor gave me but that was prescription. I also will continue taking Indole-3-Carbinol which you can get at some pharmacies under the name of Cerviplex or through the Life Extension Foundation on the web. This has vegetable/fruit extracts which protect the genomic structure of DNA and has been shown to help with cervical health. The same can be said of eating lots of fresh veggies especially brocolli which I do as well.

My sister passed away Monday morning which was very sad but was a blessing as well since she's no longer in pain. I'm hoping as the months go by that my stress levels will go down and that should help with this whole battle against dysplasia as well.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I know this thread started with cervical dysplasia, but please let me/us know how you are doing and if you need support, someone to talk to, etc.. Yes, the light in the whole situation is that your sister is at peace now and free of all the pain she endured. I don't really know how these boards work, but if there's a way to send a personal message, please feel free to send me one with your email address or IM screenname and we can chat more - I would really like to help be a support if you need it.

If you haven't checked out the Dr. Weil books, you may want to do it! It sounds like what your doctor practices - Integrative Medicine - which I think is wonderful and very exciting! I have just started looking for doctors in my area (San Francisco) that practice Integrative Medicine, so I'll see what happens. [COLOR=Sienna][I]REMOVED[/I][/COLOR] Very interesting and informative stuff! =)

Well, hope to hear from you again soon with good news of course. In the meantime, we just have to take it one step at a time. There's a cute bracelet I saw in the Signals catalog ([url]www.[COLOR=Sienna][I]REMOVED[/I][/COLOR].com[/url]) that's just a simple leather band with a silver bar that has engraved on it, "Nothing is worth more than this day". And it's very simple, but very true. One day at a time!
