WELL WOMAN'S EXAM
Well woman exams are recommend for women over the age of 18 and all women who are sexually active. This visit includes a complete physical examination as well as a pelvic exam and PAP test. The PAP test is a screening measure for the detection of abnormal changes in the cells of the cervix, HPV, and cervical cancer.
ABNORMAL PAPS & HPV
Abnormal PAP tests have become extremely common in women. HPV is a virus associated with genital warts and cervical cancer. Currently, about 33% of the population suffer with HPV. It is easily transmitted between partners and there certain strains considered high risk for inducing cellular abnormalities that can progress to cancer if left untreated.
CERVICAL ESCHAROTIC TREATMENT FOR ABNORMAL PAPS
Cervical escharotic treatment is a natural alternative to cryosurgery, conization, and LEEP procedures for certain stages of cellular abnormality. This procedure is an in-office treatment which involves direct application to the cervix with a series of plant-based formulas and nutraceuticals which induce the sclerosing and exfoliation of abnormal cells. The brilliant thing about nature is using these therapies does not cause damage to the normal cervical tissue as they are selective for the abnormal and HPV-infected cells. The treatment does not create the same potential risk of scarification as conventional treatment does. The cervical escharotic treatment is performed twice weekly for 4-8 weeks while addressing the whole person systemically- building the immune system, diet, lifestyle, supplements, herbals, and individualized homeopathic treatment.
