Many of us probably remember the seeming health revolution, as far as prevention goes, when the medical world came out with a vaccine for preventing cervical cancer a few years back. But, despite this game-changing discovery, women continue to be diagnosed with cervical cancer nearly every day, which is why treatment is just as important. In addition to taking preventative measures, you can also treat cervical cancer with natural cures, such as vitamin B12, beta carotene, and goldenseal.
What Is Cervical Cancer?
Generally speaking, cancer is given a name based on its location in the body. That being said, cervical cancer is obviously cancer that occurs in the cells of the cervix, or the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. The development of cancerous cells in your cervix is most often caused by strains of the human papillomavirus. While most women’s immune systems combat the virus, in some women, the virus remains dormant and causes the cells on the surface of the cervix to become cancerous.
While early forms of cancer typically produce no symptoms, as the condition progresses, you will experience more apparent symptoms. Common indicators of advanced level cervical cancer include vaginal bleeding after intercourse, watery or bloody vaginal discharge that has a foul odor, and pelvic pain or pain during intercourse.
Are There Any Natural Remedies for Cervical Cancer?
Because cervical cancer does not cause many early symptoms, early detection is key. If you are sexually active or over the age of 21, you should begin getting regular Pap tests. If you have been diagnosed with cervical cancer; however, you do have options. Many of the natural remedies that have been identified are effective for supporting medical treatment as well as remedying the condition independently. Some of the best treatment options include vitamin B12, beta carotene, and goldenseal.
1. Vitamin B12
The American Association of Naturopathic Physicians identifies vitamin B12 as a key player in treatment for cervical cancer. According to research, vitamin B12 deficiency is one of the key contributing factors to increased HPV infection and, in turn, cervical cancer. Supplementing with the vitamin daily helps replenish your immune function and combats the proliferation of cancer cells in your body. Begin treatment by taking 125 micrograms of vitamin B12 daily.
2. Beta Carotene
Research also suggests that beta carotene is an important nutrient used for treating cervical cancer. Beta carotene is a complex that is converted into vitamin A in your body. This nutrient helps clear the HPV infection and eliminate cancerous cells. Begin a treatment regimen by taking 75 milligrams of beta carotene by mouth daily.
Goldenseal is another effective treatment option for cervical cancer. This herbal remedy has astringent properties that cleanse the body. These properties eliminate abnormal cells and actually heal inflamed cells. Goldenseal also helps stimulate your immune system. You can take goldenseal orally, but it is most effective for treating cervical cancer when used as a douche. Place 1.5 teaspoons of goldenseal root powder in 3 cups of boiling water and allow it to steep for 15 minutes. Strain the mixture and use it when it has cooled to lukewarm. You may want to use a panty liner after douching with goldenseal, as the herb will leave yellow stains in clothing.
In addition to treating cervical cancer with these remedies, you should also maintain a healthy diet and implement practices to protect your body from further exposure to infection. Keep reading below for more natural cures for cervical cancer from Earth Clinic readers.

My grandsons mother has stage IV cervical cancer, she had her thyroid removed several years ago and has had colitis for many years. She went through radiation and chemo last winter but it got worse and when they tried to operate a week and a half ago they found it had spread too much, she is very thin and on morphine.
I wrote to Vincent Gammill and his response was: The single best tool that I know of for SCC cervical cancer is benzaldehyde in cyclodextrin. Other tools with merit include tannic acid and lupeol.
I purchased the tannic acid at a wine making shop and will mix it with equal parts sorbitol, xylitol or erythritol depending on which is available at the health food store. I also got Saw Palmetto, which from what I could find is a good source of lupeol. I still havent figured out how on earth I could get the benzaldehyde in cyclodextrin (I assume that would be beta-cyclodextrin-benzaldehyde or CDBA), so will go with the other for now. I am also getting her many of the other supplements you mention on the earthclinic site.
I told her if I were her I would cut out sugar and do a low carb diet, but Im not sure what she should eat with the colitis as she has problems with vegetables.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
