An Inside Look Into Cervical Cancer
Cervical cancer, also called uterine cancer, is almost 100% curable if it is caught early. This requires an understanding of basic symptoms, risk factors involved with treatment, and staging. This type of cancer is exacerbated by sexual activity, especially with more than one partner. This natural activity of the childbearing years is a factor in causing the disease.
Unfortunately, women are susceptible to cancer of the cervix at the peak of their involvement with their families needs. Women, by their natures, are servants, having sacrificed their comfort for years in serving the needs of her growing family. For this reason, they are more likely to dismiss symptoms because of their intense desire to serve their families.
A PAP test is the usual method of testing for cervical cancer. This should start within 3 years of beginning sexual activity or at age 21 and continue until age 65 or 70 and have had three consecutive years of normal test results. A PAP test is not 100% accurate as it can have false positives and negatives. If there is any doubt, other corroborating tests should be used, including blood tests. If you have any doubts, insist on further testing.
If you have any unusual physical conditions, don’t be a heroine, talk to your doctor. This is especially true if you have a history of cancer in your family. The predisposition is hereditary, including inherited genes and inherited life styles, especially regarding food and stress management.
If you have been diagnosed with cancer of the cervix, please know that cancer is opportunistic and it grows in situations where the ‘climate’ will support it. Poor nourishment and emotional stress are precursors to this disease. Sugars and refined starches that are converted to sugars actually feed the cancer, so the institution of a healthy diet is a must if you are to have a successful outcome. What mother of a growing family doesn’t suffer from these conditions as they forgo their needs by eating the energy foods that their children eat and forgoing enough sleep? in order to serve her family.
During stress, the natural operation of the body’s immune system is compromised, which allows cancer to grow and flourish. Fortunately, reversing the ‘climate’ can favorably support the treatments that your doctor may give you and even successfully treat the disease alone.
Lifestyle plays an important part in the formation of all tumor cells, and lifestyle changes are in order to successfully treat cervical cancer with or without conventional treatment. Your doctor may not agree with the proposition that diet plays an important part of successful treatment. Some know this truth and others do not.
If you are a mother and you have cancer, please arrange to serve your own needs first. This may mean that the children may go to live with grandma for a while. This may mean that someone else will do the laundry, shopping, cooking etc. as you give yourself the attention that successful recovery requires. Successful cancer treatment is a project for the whole family.
As with any cancer, the earlier it is detected and treated, the greater the likelihood of success. Don’t take anything for granted and check often. Having a well-planned diet is one of the keys to aiding your body with cancer fighting nutrients. Nourishing your body with vegetables and fruits rich in antioxidants such as acai berry will and other alkaline rich substances will greatly benefit you. It is important to consult with a physician before committing to any diet.
