PAP smears save lives by discovering abnormal cells, called cervical dysplasia, early enough to prevent loss of life. Every adult woman from the age of 18 should have an annual PAP test to ensure her cervix is healthy – but what can be done when the test comes back abnormal?
There are no initial symptoms until, this is why an annual PAP test is necessary.
We know that the main risk factors that promote abnormal cervical cells include: greater number of sexual partners, increasing age, infection with the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) (the virus that also causes warts), smoking, oral contraceptive use and nutritional deficiencies of folic acid, vitamin A and vitamin C.
We definitely do not want to ignore abnormal PAP tests. Too many women are advised they have an abnormal test result, and told to come back in six months for another test but are not given any suggestions for how to get their cervical cells to return to normal. Yes, some abnormal cells return to normal with no treatment, but what if simply taking a nutritional supplement containing indole-3-carbinol, calcium d-glucarate and sulforaphane along with vitamin A, C and folate could ensure a normal PAP test? Every woman I know would take a multivitamin with minerals to help those cells revert to healthy cells.
New research has shown that a nutrient called indole-3-carbinol (I3C) can reverse abnormal cervical lesions. In one study, 30 women with CINII and CINIII cervical lesions took 200 mg of I3C daily. Fifty percent in the treatment group had complete regression of their lesions. None of the placebo group had complete regression of their lesions. Indole-3-carbinol is available in ESTROsmart in the dosages used in the study to reverse abnormal cells. ESTROsmart also contains other nutrients, including calcium d-glucarate, rosemary containing carnosic acid, di-indolylmethane (DIM), sulforaphane, turmeric and green tea – all researched to help prevent our estrogens from converting to toxic estrogens. So you get the benefit of returning abnormal PAP tests to normal.
