How Can You Prevent & Treat Cervical Cancer?

Reduce Cervical Cancer

Hi Everyone! Many members have amazed their oncologists by following this lifestyle. It’s for a good reason. Gut health and inflammation play a role in cervical cancer treatment and development.

This post is about protecting yourself from cervical cancer and managing cervical cancer, not just through treatment, diet, and lifestyle but through something so powerful that it has a massive role in remission recovery.

Run this anti-inflammatory lifestyle by your doctor if they haven’t already prescribed it!

How to Reduce Cervical Cancer Risk

Cervical cancer is the most common gynecological cancer, the fourth most frequent cancer in women, and cervical cancer is treatable. The lower the number, the less chance it has spread, and many women who have cervical cancer put their condition into remission.

Members, access your personalized advice for Cancer here.

If you have been diagnosed with cervical cancer, there are many factors that influence your outlook. Indeed, there are also many factors for reducing the risk of developing cervical cancer.

Reducing the risk of cervical cancer is possible by:

  • Regular screening. Symptoms don’t present themselves in the early stages.
  • Protecting yourself against sexually transmitted diseases by using barrier methods and practicing safer sex.
    HPV (common sexually transmitted disease) vaccination and regular screening.
    Reducing lifestyle contributing factors like smoking, lack of exercise, malnutrition, etc.
  • Follow an anti-inflammatory lifestyle: 
  • Reduce high-inflammatory food intake.
    Reduce oxidative stress.
  • Reduce psychological stress.
    Encourage diverse, healthy microbiota in the gut.
  • Improve sleep.
    Boost immune cells.
  • Detox liver.
    Increase nutrition.
    Do regular anti-inflammatory movements.
    Practice neuroplasticity exercises.

Remember that information about cancer advice and treatment online does not replace your doctor’s advice or treatment. There are some strange cancer-cure diets and suggestions online! Run everything by them.

This anti-inflammatory lifestyle is BUPA-Global-approved and is prescribed by doctors worldwide. Check the testimonies under cancer for our members’ cancer treatment success stories.

How to Keep Your Cervix Healthy

Although HPV is a pivotal factor in cervical cancer development, it is not HPV alone that causes it, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer.

Most HPV viruses are harmless and can go away on their own, or the immune system clears them up.

For ones that don’t go away, many contributing factors increase HPV persistence.

Keep your cervix healthy by keeping your inflammation down and your immune system boosted with healthy gut microbiota composition.

This will reduce the environment that creates optimal conditions for HPV to thrive and for cancer to grow. Chronic inflammation has powerful effects on cancer development.

In studies (Mhatre et al., 2012; Di Paola et al., 2017, Gosmann et al., 2017, Casellie et al., 2020), elevated inflammatory cytokines are found in the vaginas of patients with cervical cancer or precancerous lesions.

Inflammatory cells have potent effects on the development of tumors, a mass of tissue that forms when cells grow, divide more than they should, and do not die.

It isn’t the growth of cells alone that causes cancer. It is the environment in which they are, along with other responses to tissue injury.

Many processes happen alongside the inflammatory cells, DNA-damage-promoting agents, and other factors that promote the risk of tumors.

Inflammatory cells promote tumors early in development

This is because the state of inflammation and the chemokines and cytokines that are produced provide an environment for the growth, survival, and spreading of cancer.

Reduce Chronic Inflammation for Cancer Protection

Chronic inflammation and oxidative stress lead to the production of reactive oxygen species and the release of pro-inflammatory factors, decreasing antioxidants.

This reduces the activity that antioxidants play since fighting reactive oxygen species at the cellular level does not occur, and this inactivity increases oxidative DNA damage.

Persistent, sustained inflammation encourages disease and can turn on genetic expression. If non-communicable diseases exist in your family, you have more chance of developing these diseases if you don’t reduce your inflammation. 

Chronic inflammation is one of the critical drivers of cervical cancer.

An anti-inflammatory lifestyle will protect the body from the development and the progression of cervical cancer tumors by decreasing tumor-promoting properties such as pro-inflammatory cytokines and increasing tumor-reducing properties like anti-inflammatory cytokines.

When the homeostasis of microorganisms is compromised, the microorganisms themselves cause immune responses in the organism.

How to Keep the Female Reproductive System Healthy

Focusing on gut health will assist here because certain microbes trigger inflammation which contributes to cervical cancer development.

Like in the gut, there is a diversity of bacteria in the female reproductive tract, and imbalances and inflammation can occur through various factors. Some of which we are in control of.

For instance, our dietary patterns, sex life, contraception, and cigarettes, as well as where and how we live, influence the composition of a vaginal microbiome. It can also be affected by hormones like estrogen and the immune system.

Of course, estrogen fluctuates throughout a woman’s menstrual life. It reduces in menopause, of which we have no control, but a weakened immune system can be something that can be controlled and managed, too (as in autoimmune diseases, which are treated successfully on Eat Burn Sleep).

Numerous studies show that healthy women have one or more good bacteria in the vagina and a small diversity of other bacteria.

This suggests that healthy microbiota composition is a potent defender in the female reproductive tract, as it is in the gastrointestinal tract.

When the female reproductive tract is in disorder, bacteria that destroy tissue or release toxins are dominant, and this counteracts the positive effects of good bacteria, which change the pH, promote oxidation, pro-inflammatory cytokines, and so on, and epithelial cells (which maintain structural integrity) can be damaged, disrupting the mucosal barrier (which is essential to health).

When microbiota is disturbed, physiological changes can lead to disease development like cancer.

An effective immune system clears most HPV that enters the reproductive tract. However, a compromised immune response sparks up the pathological process and aids in the development.

HPV, inflammation, and microbiome dysregulation all influence each other.

Which Foods Increase the Risk of Cervical Cancer?

High-inflammatory diets almost always open the body up to chronic diseases, including obesity, diabetes, joint issues, depression, and autoimmune and skin disorders like psoriasis.

Countless studies suggest a direct association between high-inflammatory diets and cervical cancer.

High-inflammatory foods that are highly processed, low in dietary fiber, and high in sugars, carbohydrates, saturated and trans fats, protein, cholesterol, sodium, and additives with very little nutrition increase dysbiosis and inflammation and dysregulate the immune system. This all contributes to the development of cancers.

Consumption of processed, high-inflammatory foods will increase your risk of an array of diseases, leaving your body susceptible to cervical cancer and less robust to fight illness.

A pro-inflammatory lifestyle induces chronic inflammation. Cervical cancer is associated with women with a pro-inflammatory diet, a sedentary lifestyle, and an HPV infection.

Best Cancer Diet

Eating gut-healthy, nutritious foods to keep inflammation down will fight cervical cancer and, indeed, can prevent the development of cervical cancer.

Increase nutrition and good gut bacteria composition, boost immunity, and lower inflammation to protect against HPV and reduce proliferation and migration if HPV is already present.

A diet rich in powerful antioxidants, prebiotics, probiotics, omega-3, and other cancer-fighting vitamin and mineral essentials, micronutrients, and compounds found on Eat Burn Sleep will encourage and maintain an excellent antioxidant balance. It will reduce oxidative processes and inflammation, protecting cells from DNA damage and proliferation and mitigation, preventing cervical tumors.

It is important to remember that the mind and body should be treated holistically to recover well.

Successful cancer treatment is possible. But it is never just by diet and medication combined. Nor just regular anti-inflammatory exercise and boosting immunity. It also includes something so powerful that it is often overlooked and has a massive role in remission recovery.

What Helps Cancer Recovery?

Health status and mindset are vital for responding to cancer treatment.

A focus on health recovery as well as protection from cancer and chronic disease also includes the powerful tool of the brain. Neuroplasticity exercises are as important as what we put into our bodies and how we move, breathe, destress, etc.

This is what Sofia, our member, who also kindly appeared on a recent podcast, said was the missing link that she was looking for on her cancer recovery journey, which she found on Eat Burn Sleep.

All areas of Eat Burn Sleep promote the lowering of chronic inflammation and protection from disease. It promotes the mental power to get through and keep stress and inflammation down through neuroplastic exercises.

Plus, members can access the Cancer Prevention and Recovery Protocol in the Personalized Advice section. This includes advice on nutrition, supplements, mental wellness, exercise, and what to avoid for cancer protection and cancer recovery.

Plus, the forum is valued for being in touch with fellow members. Drawing on others’ experiences, support, and sharing our journeys helps us so much.

When Sofia returned for her blood results, her Oncologist was so impressed with her blood results, going down the list, saying, ‘Wow! Wow! Wow! What did you do?”.

An Anti-inflammatory Lifestyle for Cancer

Chronic inflammation is modulated by what we eat, how we live, and how we mentally deal with recovery.

Listen to my conversation with Dr. Tamsin Lewis about the links between mental and physical health here.

Encouraging a diverse microbiota, regulating immune cell production, and reducing pro-inflammatory factors are well documented in mitigating types of cervical cancer strategies.

Of course, Eat Burn Sleep detoxifies the liver, which is essential for good health, and was especially protective during medical treatment for Sofia. Your liver has to process many chemicals in cancer treatment and perform its regular functions, of which there are 500.

Cancer Recovery Success Story

If you haven’t heard Sofia’s uplifting cancer recovery story yet, please head over there when you can. Sofia is in remission from squamous cell carcinoma. She is raising awareness about this common cancer that presented itself in her anal canal.

Her approach in how she dealt with it, through what we practice on Eat Burn Sleep, visualizing the cells and holding the tumor, and leading it all out of her body as quietly as it came, is precisely what neuroplasticity is all about.

She appreciated the help she was getting and embraced each day of treatment, knowing that she was getting better. You have better chances of recovering with this mindset.

It is so powerful and a reminder not to fight with your body but to treat it with kindness and hold it in your hand.

The truth is, we are not our bodies. We are a soul within our bodies. Our body acts as a vessel.

The vessel changes as we go from being a baby to a child, to a teenager, to an adult, to an elderly person until we die.

The vessel has nothing to do with who we are. It doesn’t make you less of a person or less strong to have health issues. If you have been diagnosed with a health condition, see it as a dent on the vessel that needs to be fixed.

And you have the tools and the power to fix it.

I urge you to have cervical screening, protect your body, and arm yourself with the most powerful tools to get through anything!

Have a truly wonderful day!
